OK, let’s be honest here - this is not a super luxurious hotel if this is what you are looking! But what it offers is the most relaxing atmosphere and friendly service. It is a quiet place, next to the beach with all the rooms facing the ocean (you can actually hear the waves when in the room). The rooms are kept very clean and so are the balconies. Food was good, but could have been better. The hotel offers free bicycle hire, which I highly recommend as you can cycle to neighboring villages with no problems, it is safe as well. To sum up, if you want a quiet holiday during which you will relax and ‘switch-off’ mentally, this is the place for you! If you like a busy hotel, with lots of different things going on, loud music, this is NOT it!
There is a ‘Boat House’ next to the hotel, they offer quite good catamaran trips at reasonable prices. They also take you to the Ile aux Cerfs twice a day for free (highly recommended).
Another tip: we hired an amazing taxi driver who drove us anywhere we wanted for the whole day, which was a much more pleasant experience than being in a van full of people. There are so many things to see in Mauritius you need 2-3 days to be able to fully appreciate this beautiful island.
Happy to answer your questions if you need any advice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tropical Attitude with its gentle way of life is a 3 star sup "Adult Only" hotel, recently renovated and smartened up, built in the middle of a garden planted with coconut trees and right on the lagoon. The hotel faces Trou d'Eau Douce, a genuine fishermen's village and its lagoon, situated on the east coast, and offers direct and free access to paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs Island. The genuineness of the hotel relies on its Creole architecture and its contemporary tropical decoration. The new luminous colours of the 60 rooms contribute to their relaxed atmosphere. This friendly and comfortable hotel is a witness of the traditional way of life of the island, an ideal place to relax either as a family or as a couple. Time here seems to have come to a standstill, only interrupted by outings in the lagoon and siestas under the coconut trees. The simplicity and kindness of its Family Members* contribute widely to that dolce vita experience... ... more less
