Travelers' Choice
Tropical Attitude is an adult-only 3-star sup boutique-hotel on the east coast. The hotel, situated right on the lagoon in Trou d’Eau Douce, a genuine fishermen’s village, offers direct and free shuttle access to paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs. Stepping in, the open spaces and bar-lounge area, the Creole architecture, immediately convey the atmosphere of a relaxed and peaceful holiday home by the beach. The decoration throughout the hotel, including that of the 58 seafront rooms with their elegant bathrooms, is uncluttered and refined, in total harmony with the surrounding nature. The look is trendy: white and mineral colours with shades of dawn, reminders of the beautiful sunrises of the east coast. Now, 11 new villas with their private pool and garden Time here, seems to have come to a standstill, only interrupted by outings in the lagoon, siestas under coconut trees and local Otentik Experiences. The personalized service and kindness of its Family Members contribute widely to that gentle and relaxed way of life so typical of the tropics.

I was not sure how a hotel located in Trou d'Eau Douce would be but boy was I wrong. Above every single positive experience we have had during our stay I think the service was the most commendable. We've had smiles since minute 1, till the last moment of our stay. One can absolutely see the amount of quality training the staff has gone through to deliver this level of service. Rooms were cosy, food was amazing, specially breakfast. Special thanks to the Director, Karen, Chef Vikash, Karuna, Ram and Seevangi from the eatery, the lady who made my day by crafting a towel elephant on my bed and the two maintenance gentlemen who volunteered to help us with opening our room door.

The Tropical Attitude hotel garners praise for its superb value, offering guests reasonable rates without skimping on service or amenities. Its prime location by the beach makes it a heaven for water sports enthusiasts, while the commitment to sustainability is a highlight for eco-conscious visitors. 1. Outstanding Customer Service: "From the moment we arrived until departure, the staff exceeded expectations." "Exceptional customer service, with a commitment to making our stay comfortable." 2. High-Quality Food Options: "The hotel restaurant offered delicious meals with a diverse menu." Excitement and anticipation is something that is rare these days but that's what I feel when I'm about to be treated to a meal cooked by Mr. Vikas. Having first experienced his cuisine at the restaurant feels i am not away from home(India) & specially he did take care of the required meal during our stay. Thank you so much Chef VIKAS.. 3. Impeccable Cleanliness and Maintenance: "Rooms were spotless, and the facilities were well-maintained." "The hotel's cleanliness surpassed my expectations." Thank you Miss Nazima for wonderful towel decorations in the room everyday which felt so amazing. Thank you all at Tropical Attitude

I booked my holiday two weeks before I left, I was a little anxious going on my first solo trip alone in years, 7000miles away from home. However, there was really no need to worry, the staff were lovely, welcoming & knowledgeable. I was all inclusive, so did the free boat trip excursion to the beach island, the glass bottom boat & snorkelling. These all run daily and you can book in to go as many times as you like. There’s plenty more to do & see too across the island, shop around for the best prices on trips & car hire too. The hotel will also send you out with a lunch basket, if you book it the night before. The food is amazing, both in the buffet restaurant where you’re sure to find something you like each night as there’s a good variety. Yet also, in the mornings, where you can ask for fresh eggs however you like them cooked and bacon too, along with the usual pancakes, pastries & fruit. Knot Nou is also well worth booking in to, I went more than once and the food is delicious and it was nice to be served. The bar is a fun place to be in the evenings & they had some great acts perform each evening. The pool area is great, there’s plenty of sunbeds there & also out on the sea front under the palm trees. You can also walk along the cost line to find a sandy beach just along from the hotel & can even walk to the sister hotel (Friday Attitude) & use facilities, just inform reception so the my can ahead to let them know. My room was great & the view over the sea amazing! Loved coming back each day to see what towel art had been left for me. I felt so safe staying here alone, from the family dogs looking after guests to the security guards who walk around too, along with cctv, none of which is invasive either. I also met the most incredible people & have made memories & friends to last a life time.

What a lovely hotel,we came for our honeymoon and it did t disappoint,I was a bit dubious about it only being a 3* but after reading all the 5* reviews the official rating doesn’t do it justice,it is a truly lovely hotel,the staff,the views,the rooms,and the villas are all 5*.1st our seafront room, it was a dream waking up to the sound of the sea every morning,looking out over the sea with the gorgeous views 👌bliss. The rooms are cosy and although the shower is in the room you have a curtain for privacy. The beds are big and very comfortable,and they are actually 1 bed rather than 2 pushed together. We upgraded to a villa for the last 4 days,and although they are not beachfront that was money well spent, wow 🤩 they are lovely,the villas are big and they have a large double shower with a door that opens onto a small area with small palms, best shower we’ve ever had!!! You have a big covered outside seating area which is always in the shade and never gets wet when it rains. Your fridge and kettle etc is out there too. The private pool is plenty big enough to cool off in or you can lay in the hammock under the plant covered pagoda, they are 5* luxury 🙌. 2nd the hotel itself,it’s small and intimate as described but that’s why we chose it.the pool is the perfect size and in the middle and everything else is around it,the bar on one side and the restaurant on the other,there’s a small shop to get your supplies and a tea bar, lots of outside seating for both the day and the evening. 3rd the staff, they are all so friendly and accommodating, they want to make your stay as perfect as they can, a few stood out for us Karen the lady who sorts anything and everything,she is an absolute gem 💎,Rishmar our egg lady as we called her 🤗made our eggs to perfection every morning, always smiled and chatted,we love you ❤️ and the famous chef Vikesh,who catered for my fussy husband for the whole 2 weeks,he treated him like a king,😂 not that he doesn’t any other guest,he would always ask every guest if they enjoyed their meals,he would come out of the kitchen to check everyone was happy, who wouldn’t be!! Such lovely people.so if you want to visit a hotel that makes you feel like family and they all do, and have a lovely location this is the place.like a said the 3* rating doesn’t do it justice it was 5* for us 😍❤️😍

We were enjoying our stay at Tropical to celebrate Dad's birthday, and it has been an unforgettable experience. From the moment we arrived, the staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. The best team at Tropical Attitude made it an incredibly enjoyable time for the whole family. The warmth and hospitality of the Tropical Attitude family were evident throughout our stay. Every member of the staff is really welcoming and attentive, making us feel right at home. We can't thank them enough for their extraordinary service and genuine care. We deeply enjoyed the food, and the chef's dedication to providing an array of vegetarian options for Mom and Dad made our stay incredibly smooth. Thank you enormously @tropicalattitudehotel for making Dad's birthday celebration so special. We can't wait to return and create more wonderful memories with you. Special thanks to the Director, Chef Vikash, Mr. Ram, Miss Karuna, Ms Karen, Mr Arvin, Miss Seewangee

This is a very charming hotel with beautiful kind staff. Huge thanks to Dominik the chef: what a great human being he is! Ans his food is just amazing! We stayed 4 nights and truely enjoyed our experience. We had an issue with power in our first room and had to be moved to another one: only disappointment was that they put us in the room just near the restaurant/bar and the music is quite loud in the room. It was my husband 40th birthday and we had a lovely cake at dinner / sign in the room (thanks selven from Reception for your help!) Highly recommend the hotel for their staff.

The staff are all outstanding and nothing is too much trouble for them always giving the best service. There are so many little things they do for you wether it be cooking lessons, boat trips, massages, and so much more, every night the chef talks to the guests. Every night there is entertainment at the bar area ranging from dancers, bands, singers and traditional music. The rooms, restaurant, grounds and pool areas are so well maintained and clean. I would definitely come back again

The people are amazing. The hotel is beautiful. There is no way that this should be a 3 star hotel. We have had a magical trip that has included, boat trips, cooking lessons with Vikash the chef and massages to name a few. There is not a single member of staff I want to exclude from my thanks they are all beautiful people who truly want you to have the best holiday possible. The hotel dogs are well cared for and in return they look after guests.
