The Vanila (yes, that's how it's spelt) Hotel is a high-standard resort compared to anything else on Madagascar and is clearly catering to international guests. By world standards it rates three stars.
It has 23 suites, four family suites and two VIP suites. The restaurant is excellent and features a wide selection of local cuisine, but like most establishments in Madagascar, service standards are polite but definitely unhurried.
My stay at Vanila Hotel was an overall pleasant experience with no substantial complaints.
