“Very relaxing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had a lovely relaxing time at hotel Tropical attitude. Very nice rooms all have great view over sea/lagoon . All the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome . If you are looking for a small hotel and a very relaxing time with wonderful attentive staff then I would recommend this hotel . We would definitely stay at this hotel again when we return to mauritius.

We spent in Tropical hotel 7 beautiful nights. Very nice and charming holiday. This hotel is a good choice when you want to enjoy your stay in Mauritius and spend reasonable money.
Very willing and helpful staff (in reastaurant, bar, reception). We were even allowed to stay in room longer in the date of departure.

The hotel beach is not really nice, but the hotel organize trips to the island (Ile aux Cerfs), which is one of the most beautiul places in Mauritius.

Food is fine. Not very big choice, but interesting local specialties. I recomend lobster dinner.

I can this hotel recomend to all people who are looking for nice place, with helpful staff and private holiday.
Thank guys for nice experience.

Dear Michal,

It has been our pleasure to host you during a week at Tropical Attitude and we warmly thank you for your warm compliments on our staff and their dedicated service.

Despite the fact that we do not have a beach in front of the hotel, we provide daily free shuttles to the gorgeous Ile Aux Cerfs Island and a white sandy beach is accessible by foot only a couple of hundred meters form the hotel.

We have taken note of your comment about our buffet.

We look forward to welcoming you again in the future,

Very kind regards from our team here,

Mervin & His Team

We stayed for 10 days with my sister and her husband at end of March. After a few initial really small issues we settled in to the relaxed and chilled atmosphere. The staff (need to mention Arvin and Sunil) and management went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Breakfast was definitely the 'star' of meal times, eggs and omelettes cooked expertly by Karen! Lunch and dinner was a little more restricted, but perfectly adequate always 2/3 choices of main including a fish dish and there was always salads and fresh fruit. The resort is very small and therefor does not cater for the masses. We were told the same as in other guest reviews and just to say if you needed or wanted something else cooked, which we did on a couple of occasions and they were very happy to do this. The rooms are clean and well kept with a huge bed and air conditioning which worked, although we did feel the bathrooms a little tired, it didn't spoil our stay. We also found the entertainment to our liking.
The grounds are well kept, the pool area is exceptionally nice and the sun loungers are of a good quality. All in all we were sad to leave.

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful stay in the Tropical from the 10th to 20th March. Our first visit to Mauritius, what a wonderful experience, from the time we arrived to the time we left. I must admit I had some reservations having read recent trip adviser reports, but these were all put to bed the moment we arrived. We arrived to be greeted with a drink and a very welcome ice cold wash cloth and a smiling face. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble. I wanted fresh milk in the room for coffee and tea as I am not keen on powered, we were given cartons of fresh. Breakfast was always a pleasure especially Karen's smile which started the day, and she always remembered how you liked your eggs, for me it was her wonderful banana jam - which I hasten she made a very large jar for me to take home. Pravid and Alvin are wonderful in the restaurant and bar. Only one very minor issue - no hot water one evening which was dealt with efficiently. Lastly I have to say a huge thank you to Mervin for always being present and knowing everyone of your guests and for seeing us off the evening we left, a lovely gesture and much appreciated. This is a home from home hotel which makes it quite unique. We miss you all and the wonderful friends we met, Chrissie, Angie & Mike.

Dear Wendy and Trev,

Thank you very much for your warm appreciations and good to hear that sometimes what is reported on Trip Advisor does not necessary apply to one and all.

We were really happy to help making your stay in Mauritius memorable and all our “Family Members” recalled your stay and your good humor.

We look forward to welcoming you again in your second home.,

On the 9th of March this year my wife and I spent our customary week at the Tropical Attitude.
As always we were made most welcome. We noticed a couple of changes in the personnel. We we're inform mr Martin ( manager had moved on as well as Sunny the House manager ) and the present manager is Mervin Appadoo and the House manager is Jack. There were no hesitation from either of them to ensure our stay was perfect as always.The rest of the staff and ourselves were very pleased to meet again and nothing was too much trouble to accommodate us. I will just say our friends at the resort ,too many to mention by names in the nicest way, made our stay very enjoyable and pleasant. As it was 46th Independence Day on the 12th of March,a party was organised to celebrate this auspicious occasion. To my surprise I was very honoured to be asked by Mervin the manager to be the guest of honour to cut the Celebration Cake. I take this opportunity to thank him for his kind gesture. On the whole we had a lovely and relaxing time. We thank all the members of staff for making our stay a memorable one yet again. God's willing we will again soon.

Lovely hotel, quite small with small pool but great staff and good standard of food. The grounds go to the beach which is small and rocky but there is a sanday beach a short walk along the shoreline. Great free speed boat service to beach across the bay and the hotel will provide a packed lunch for you to take. There are some facilities over there as it is used by the nearby 5* hotel. Lovely areqa with shallow sea filled lagoon as well as ocean beaches but watch out for sea urchins in the shallow water just offshore. Mauritius is great to get around as there are bus services which are an experience. Hiring a car enables you to see more of the island but buses are quite adequate if you don't want the hassle of driving.

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea
