My wife (of one day!) and I spent ten lovely nights at the beautiful hotel Tropical Attitude in October 2006 - sorry I've only just got around to reviewing it, but judging from the recent reviews from other people it hasn't changed much... A small hotel with beach-hut style accommodation right on the waterline of a lovely beach with palm... More

Last minute booking very lucky. We were welcomed and they meant it. Small but this is essence of its charm. We met so many interesting people. You can be alone but also very much part of the place.food appropriate for the price and staff make great efforts to make it relaxing and fun

When we arrived we were welcomed and given cocktails and nibbles which was a very nice personal touch as well as the assistant manager the manager came over and introduced himself. We were then taken to our rooms and the porter brought our luggage along for us. This small friendly hotel does everything and anything to help you enjoy your... More

We arrived home last week from this wonderful second home! We want to thank Mervyn and Clifford very deeply for the care you gave my husband and myself after he arrived ill. Nothing was... More

We needed to do nothing but relax away from the crowds this trip, and Mervin and his team at this lovely and secure hotel sure found a way of helping us to do that. We found TA to be a small, cozy, almost family run style hotel, situated right against the Lagoon waterfront. All the spacious, clean bedrooms face onto... More

We originally booked the Cocatier hotel but eventually changed and decided on the Tropical Attitude, which was a really good decision, as we really loved the place and the people. ALL the staff, overseen by Mervin, are an absolute credit to the "Attitude chain" of hotels. The rooms at first seemed a bit run down, but these small imperfections were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tropical Attitude with its gentle way of life is a 3 star sup 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
