“Good value and well run 3 star hotel with a nice beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

The only thing stopping me from awarding 4/5 was the rather lengthy wait to check in. To be fair, our BA flight did arrive slightly earlier than the check in time, but it eventually ended up taking us 4 hours to get a room (a new record), and which after a 12 hour flight makes for a very long trip indeed. Anyhow I hope for the sake of other guests this was just a one-off.

The hotel has a good beach and nice quiet rooms - although we found the food and entertainment had a bit of a 'Butlins' feel (i.e. burger and chips for lunch, curry for dinner - that sort of thing, a few other options available. On sitting in the bar on the first evening, hearing the entertainer asking for 5 couples to come up on stage hastened our early exit), otherwise the friendly staff were excellent in taking the time to make you feel welcome and giving a personalized service.

All in all this smaller hotel is very good value - it definitely attracts a more budget conscious sort of traveller (interesting to note that apparently you can do Mauritius on a budget) but is also perhaps a little less corporate in its atmosphere (friendlier?) than the other larger hotels.

Me and my partner spent our honeymoon at the hotel and thought it was an excellent place to stay.

The rooms were spotlessly clean everyday as as the hotel in general. My wife is very fussy with food but the kitchen staff were very accomodating in making her something that wasnt on the menu for the evening. Of the staff at the hotel we found them all to be very attentive and approachable. However particular praise has to be for Jimmy and Hugo who just happened to be the two members of staff we saw the most and were excellent.

The hotel almost has its own private beach area just a stones throw away where the hotel staff will bring you drinks down to you. You use a little flag system to indicate whether you want service or not. It works really well. The beach is like paradise with a beautiful coral reef not too far out to snorkle in.

The pool area is beautifull but there is, like at any hotel, a rush to get tue sun beds! Not a major problem though if you do struggle as the beach is 10 sec walk away.

The only two negatives I could think of whilst writing this review was 1) that we expected the rooms to be a bit bigger than they were but this wasnt to much of a problem. And 2) we had an overnight flight and arrive at the hotel at 0900. However our tour operator hadnt told us we couldnt check in until 1400 so we had to wait until then by the pool. We were so tired as we got no sleep on the plane and obviously unprepared not to be in our room. However I would like to state that it wasnt the hotels fault, it was the tour operators in my opinion. The hotel provided us with a shower room and food and drink and a sun bed.

The entertainment was good. You didnt have to join if you didnt want to and didnt feel under pressure to either.

One of the staff even escorted me on a bike to the chemist in town about 10 min cycle away which i felt was way above what i would expect of a hotel to do.

The package we had with the hotel included two trips out on the glass bottom boat owned by the hotel. Highly recommend this trip as you get to see the coral reef that surrounds the island.

The other trip was to an offshore island about 40 mins away. Well worth doing that as we also then paid for a private speed boat around that island and he took us out to the coral reef and i could snorkle there. An amazing experience seeing all tje wildlife in the reef.

On the whole I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone lokoing for a holiday in Mauritius.

I spent an amazing week at Emeraude with my Mom and my 2 daughters in early September. The staff can be highly recommended for their friendliness, efficiency and willingness to help with any requests. It is a super place to relax and the setting is beautiful. Our rooms were spotless and a flower on the bed each day added a special touch. The food was tasty and the variety sufficient. We enjoyed the " theme evenings" and the entertainment after dinner was enjoyable. We'll done Nicolas for all your effort. To everyone at Emeraude a big thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Spent a superb time in the hotel. Me and my wife will definitely return to this hotel. We are a Mauritian couple and stayed there end of july. Was looking for quiet romantic setup and we were blessed. Great service and food was delicious! Liked the glass bottom tour organised by the hotel for us. Was offered a really good package and value for money. They deserve a star higher than what is rated!

On the 27 august 2013 ,I called EMERAUDE HOTEL to reserved four double rooms for 8 persons for the 14 september 2013 and 15 september 2013 and they confirmed my reservation and even given me a code to confirm my stay there.On wednesday i received a call ,they told me that there was no available rooms and they will have to transfer our stay to HOTEL LES COCOTIERS at BAIE DU TOMBEAU which is a two star hotel. I try to call the Manager but in vain. I think they should have inform us the day we made the booking itself . Now at the last moment if hard for me to find another hotel .I have been very dissapointed as it the first time I get such problem. I have been to many other hotels it never happened . I read on the web site that ''Attitude allows each and everyone to dream of paradise well before arriving and long after leaving. Attitude is the reminder of a holiday in Mauritius, a token to take home…'' I made the wrong choice thank you

Dear Guest,

I am truly sorry for what happened to you when booking your one-night stay at Emeraude Beach Attitude – please accept our sincere apologies and note that this rarely occurs in our hotel.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we called you a week prior to your arrival (as you are residing in Mauritius) to offer you to either postpone your stay to an ulterior date of your choice or to stay at another hotel from our group. Unfortunately, this did not suit your needs.

Emeraude Beach Attitude is very popular and confirmed bookings with payment deposit (not the case here) are always preferred.

Once again, we would like to apologize for the inconvenience,

Best regards,

Ashok Mooroteea
General Manager

Review written on behalf of my Parents who have just returned from a 2 week stay at this hotel. The Hilton could be taught a thing or two! The staff were excellent and going the extra mile for you was never a problem. Thank-you to Sebastian the Chef who cooked a separate dish for me on curry night (I hate curry!). The rooms are spotless, food very good and the location is perfect, the beach is simply stunning. The activities co-ordinator worked hard and there was a good all round selection of entertainment. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, it is a small hotel and socialising with other holiday makers (if you want to) is easy, because of the ambiance (Sarah and Charlie, contact me .... Dad misses you!!!) We would return to this hotel in a heartbeat! Ideal for couple or families.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

What a lovely hotel this is. Everywhere spotless, great food with very attentive staff. The rooms were kept very clean and tidy by staff who were very dedicated to their job. Nice bar area which was good for mixing with other guests. The spa was lovely and probably the best treatment I have ever had. The beach was across the road and was not busy at all. All in all, a great value holiday.
