This boutique hotel is a small piece of paradise on earth.
Located right next to the Ocean, Le Recif Attitude is the perfect place to forget about the world.
The rooms are organized through two lines of small 2 floors “villas” type. The ones facing the ocean are just amazing, specially to watch the sunset. Magic!
The garden is nicely maintained, and I enjoyed the flowers of “frangipaniers”, with their delicate shape and smell.
Inside the rooms, nothing too pretentious but everything is clean, functional and comfortable.
The management and staff are so friendly; they do their best to make you feel like home.
The immediate beach is actually just on the reef, which makes it a bit hard to walk on the white dead coral and swim… But if you are looking for a nice snorkeling session, this is definitely the ideal place. Plenty of colorful tropical fishes are to be seen on the immediate reef and I even got the chance to follow a turtle! For a more “white sandy” beach, you can opt for the closed by “Mon Choisy” beach which is probably less “exclusive” and can be quite busy on weekends, but is a more “lagoon” type beach closed by.
Right on the beach, the sun beds are covered by nice wooden umbrellas. The “boat house” staff will invite you to enjoy complementary snorkeling gear + one hour snorkeling trip on glass boat off the reef twice a day. Excursions can also be arranged from them at a better price than what travel agency may do.
The infinity pool is also something to enjoy, even though often busy with the kids as it provides a safer environment than the beach.
The hotel also feature a nice reception area, as well as a great terrace-bar where you can enjoy the famous rhum based cocktail or any well deserved drink you might feel to enjoy after a hard day at the beach or on the island main touristic attraction! Wifi is also available there, but you might need to use some patience (at the end of the day, you don’t come here to spend your time on your cell phone… even if I could not resist ;)
Last, but not least, the restaurant is set on a beautiful open terrace (and there is option to dine on the beach for the young romantic couple). The breakfast was great with exotic and tasty marmalade and fresh fruits. They have “A la carte” menu for lunch and the grilled fish was so tasty! The prices are also quite good compared to what I could experience out. And dinners were always a happy moment to share with your loved ones, with either buffet or set “theme” menu, which was a perfect way to enjoy the evening. Every night was featuring a live entertainment that also added to the nice atmosphere.
Seen from outside, I believe that you can really enjoy your time there probably better than on other “big” 5* hotels which were looking like “Tourists factory”…
All and all a wonderful stay in Mauritius and Le Recif Hotel was the perfect place to get the most of it.
