“5* service, fantastic hotel, a gem”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

I have never posted a review before but feel I must share the amazing time we had at Tropical Attitude in Mauritius. The staff are the friendliest I have come across and they could not do enough for you. They made such an effort to get to know us the moment we arrived. By day two the bar staff were bringing our 'usual' even without ordering. The food is great. Don't miss the omelettes at breakfast, It was always nice to have a chat with Karen while she whipped up an omelette of your choice. Make sure you do the catamaran trip, booked through the hotel. It's a fabulous day and fantastic value for money. I would definitely recommend this hotel, it a amazing value for money. We will be back!

What a great place and great value for money. The staff undoubtedly make the place they are so friendly and helpful. Good accommodation and meals. Fantastic views of the Indian ocean. We recently spent 2 weeks here and would no doubt return. Small things make a massive difference e.g. we had a night flight when leaving and the room/all inclusive finished at 11am. However at no charge the manager gave us the all inclusive and room until we checked out (but was subject to demand). HIGHLY recommend this hotel. Paul and Louise

We have just returned from the tropical attitude it was absolutely fantastic. The food was good, very clean place bedrooms fabulous sea facing view which was awesome. What made this hotel was the staff, who were the friendliest people we have ever met, helpful courteous always had a smile and nothing was ever too much trouble. Book your excursions through reception not your rep they are half the price and they will arrange them for you.

We asked on our last day if we could keep the room which they let us free of charge and let us have the all inclusive until we left which was suppose to finish at 12 midday and we didn't leave until 6pm.

Could not fault this hotel in anyway highly recommended!!!!!

We have just returned after having 10 wonderful and relaxing days celebrating our silver anniversary.From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome by Sunny and all his staff.The ice tea and warm towels on arrival made us feel refreshed.You are made to feel very much at home and the attention that was given to us on our last night which included champagne and a special meal inc cake..was a complete and delightful surprise arranged by Benedictine."The hotel was special" as it is has an intimate atmosphere and a 5 star service.I asked for flowers to be arranged in secret for my wife on our anniversary and this was done with great attention to detail and the display was wonderful.
We fully recommend a visit to the spar as Vandana, Nandine and Mamta are very professional and made us feel very relaxed.We would fully recommend this treatment especially on your last day before departure as this really helped with the long flight home.We are not used to giving such high praise and we have not given a trip advisor review before.You will not be disappointed with this hotel if you choose to visit in the future.

I have just returned from another stay here, its such a lovely hotel! It has a family feel to it & the staff are very gracious and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble!
Spent a wonderful day at Ile Aux Cerfs on a shuttle boat ran by the hotel, to a neighbouring island, It's a great day out, stunning white sandy beaches & beautiful views.
Food was varied, fresh & tasty & if you want something different - you only need to ask.
Will return for sure!

My husband and I spent 11 wonderful days at this hotel. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient and the overall service was great. The food was excellent without fail and there was a great variety of options to suit all tastes. The hotel itself is very clean, neat and cosy and our room was always very clean - the room attendant even cleaned my hairbrush once, which I felt was really going the extra mile! The views from the rooms and the common areas were breathtaking - what a privilege to wake up to that view every morning! The hotel offers a nice variety of activities and the staff at the boat house were very friendly and helpful in suggesting activities. We were treated like royalty and we really had an excellent holiday. Thank you to all the staff that made our holiday such a memorable one!

This review is on behalf of my parent.
They just got back over a week ago, from a wonderful 2 week stay at Tropical Attitude.
First time, they ever asked to write a review, so they must be something special about this hotel.
The warmth and friendly attitude from all the staff was exception, nothing was to much for them and they went out of their way to make the stay a memorable one.
I have been given a lengthy list of names, so i will start off with the chefs that took the limelight:
Vikas, Karen, pravin, Sanjay, Sunil, Sango, Christopher, Mohun & Annise.
A very big thank you to you all, for creating such lovely delights.
Also like to extend my parents appreciation to Jean Paul Martin, the general manger.
My parents advised they would love to go back, but from all the great things i heard, i think i need to go and see what its like for myself.
So if you want to enjoy a great holiday and stay in a hotel, which aspires to please, then Tropical Attitude, should be considered.
Once again, thank you to everyone, who made my parent stay, so memorable.
I also look forward to visiting.

Kindest Regards

Mr & Mrs S Khatri

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.
