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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Emeraude Beach Attitude faces one of the island's most beautiful beaches, Belle Mare beach, with its kilometres of white sand, turquoise and emerald lagoon running along the east coast. Holidays are spent swimming and diving in a turquoise sea, without forgetting the magic of the glass bottom boat trips. To that genuinely Mauritian seaside holiday experience, the two bonuses offered are the beach attendance with Coco and his typically Mauritian beach cart, and the serenity of the Spa Attitude.Wood, stone and thatch are widely used in decoration and architecture. Built in the middle of a lush green garden, the four room bungalows totaling 61 rooms are decorated with refined taste and creativity. Of small capacity, friendly and charming, this 3 star hotel, together with its family members with their typical Mauritian expertise, reminds one of the old days' gentle way of life. Its innovative package "Emeraude Plus" is ideal to enjoy unrestrainedly, as a couple or a family, a seaside holiday in such an exclusive spot. ... more less
