Fled here at short notice from dreadful place elsewhere and was lucky to get in. Lonely Planet rates it highly but as another review remarks for a place only 4-5 years old there are rotting verandah struts, the handrails on the very steep steps up to the bungalows are all gone , sinks have no plugs and bathroom fittings wobble and are a bit iffy. It needs a maintenance purge. Just painting the bungalows in nice colours ain't enough. However the views are magnificent and for birders very rewarding, Our room was spacious and the bed fine, no TV, plenty storage space, no complaints there. On our visit there was a wedding and birthday party in the hill top restaurant so we ate in the breakfast room and had a very good tasty meal of crayfish for coppers. Excellent. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast too. The pool was the third we encountered which was not fit for use- no filtration, no water treatment. mo pumping, so leafy stagnant water. All in all a nice place to stay in beautiful surroundings

Ranomafana could easily be compared to the village of Macondo in "One hundred years of solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez or vice-versa. It is a beautiful place out of time. The Karibotel epitomizes this feeling. Its location on a hillside offers breathtaking views of the valley and although the accomodations are a bit spartan, the bungalows are clean and well appointed. The restaurant on top of the hill has some surprises in store for the discerning traveller (crayfish flambé in pastis ...). The staff is extremely courteous and knowledgeable and this highly contributes to make a stay at the Karibotel a great experience.

Amazing view right from the bungalow, the Bungalow is nicely equipped and great price in comparison to other hotel. Restaurant is basic, we did laundry there too. The rooms are adequate, not too much spoil to be found. The view really makes it all worth it.

The only thing good about this place is the view. The rooms look nice on the ouside, but poorly maintained. Almost no water pressure. Restaurant is very bad & sad decor. Almost nothing ln the plate except some poorly made chicken nuggets. Rooms lock with poor key. Toilet seat is Broken The pool, if we can call this a pool and not a hole in the ground painted blue, doesnt have any chairs so relax or sit. Enjoy...

The arrival place -called reception- is rather minimal. Personnel medium to below average level. The reception is the only place where Wifi works a bit. The bungalows, restaurant and pool are all on higher levels of the slope. Luckily most of the travellers come to visit the park and are in good shape to climb. When looking at the construction of the bungalows it is nearly unbelievable that they were build in 2014. The sliding glass door seems to be much older. a small key of 3 cm long is expected to protect you from intruders.(probably for this reason they write out not to leave anything of value in the rooms). bed Ok, surface of the room sufficient, bathroom +/- OK. For dinner there is a choice of 3-4 dishes for each of the entry and main dish. This is quite OK. Service slow as on most places. The break fast service is worse. Not enough personnel and if you do not insist you even do not get the basics such as butter/margarine and marmelade. 1 day we got fruit and juice, probably on the next day they run out. All in all: a nice location but with the right staff (and maintenance) missing.
