Our Verdict

ALL-INCLUSIVE! If you’re looking for a simple resort which still offers All Inclusive at a reasonable price, then Tropical Attitude is well worth considering – a big plus is the free boat transfers on offer to guests to the nearby paradise island of Ile aux Cerfs!

What's Hot

  • Take advantage of the regular complimentary boat shuttle to Ile Aux Cerfs – twice a day with picnic basket on request - here you can enjoy arguably the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius!
  • This is a small resort with just 60 rooms so will appeal to those wanting to avoid large hotels
  • All-Inclusive is the standard here, so you're unlikely to get any nasty shocks come check-out time
  • There's a local bus stop just outside the hotel - perfect if you want to explore the island on a budget!

What's Not

  • Narrow beach which almost disappears at high tide - but then again just take advantage of the boat shuttle and head to Ile aux Cerfs instead
  • Palm trees are pretty but provide loads of shade, so it can be difficult to find a sunny spot to tan
  • Just the one restaurant on offer, which some people could find too limiting

Tropical Attitude is one of those old-school Mauritian resorts (that have become increasingly rare on the island) where you can enjoy an island holiday at a reasonable price, without all of the frills and whistles of newer (and correspondingly more expensive) resorts. The hotel underwent a pretty comprehensive makeover back in 2012 where the resort’s pretty old fashioned bones were given a new set of frocks, so décor is a mix of contemporary chic and traditional Mauritian charm. Rooms are set in pretty, Creole-style beach houses, and they all have a minibar and TV, as well as a balcony or terrace with views over the water.

Tropical Attitude bumps up against Trou d’eau Douce’s lagoon on the island’s East Coast, so the calm waters of the lagoon are just a few steps away.There’s a narrow beach, plus a grassy sunbathing area just above the sand with loungers and hammocks strung up between palms. It’s probably fair to say that the hotel’s beach is not its strongest point: being narrow it pretty much disappears at high tide, whilst the shade from the palm trees can have sun worshippers moving their loungers about in search of rays (of course in the heat of summer this shade can be a huge relief!) A pool is paired with another sun terrace, where a bar will deliver rum cocktails straight to your sun-lounger!

But if the resort’s beach isn’t the highlight of staying here, Tropical Attitude does have an ace up its sleeve in the form of free boat transfers across to the paradise island of Ile aux Cerfs about 5 minutes away – the hotel will pack you a picnic lunch for you to enjoy whilst relaxing on the stunning white sandy beaches and aquamarine waters to be found here! Talking of food, the modern lagoon-view Le Cocotier restaurant is light and airy, looking out directly onto the lagoon on one side and onto the swimming pool from the other. Here you can enjoy a buffet offering wide choice of cuisine, including European, Chinese, Indian and Mauritian specialities. La Canne à Sucre is the bar which runs alongside the swimming pool and its comfortable armchairs make it the ideal place to sip a selection of exotic cocktails, the bar’s speciality, as the day turns to night. A local band entertains and, once a week, there is a special Sega show, when you can discover the music and rhythms traditional to Mauritius in a flamboyant whirl of sound and colour.

With just 60 rooms, Tropical Attitude is one of the smaller hotels on the island which means that it will appeal to guests looking for a quieter, simpler holiday – obviously if you want loads of facilities and the busyness of the larger resorts then it’s probably better to steer clear. There are 58 standard rooms (33m²) which are fitted with wide sliding glass doors allowing a stunning view on Trou d'Eau Douce's lagoon and paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs in the background. They are decorated in local style and comfortably arranged with large beds. As you would expect at this price level, they are simple, clean and comfortable but without boasting too many bells and whistles. You can expect air-conditioning, TV, tea and coffee facilities, a minibar with select drinks included as well as hairdryer - each room has a balcony or terrace looking out directly over the beach and the lagoon. For a little more space you can opt for one of the two Family Rooms which sleep up to 4 courtesy of a separate kid’s bedroom with 2 single beds.

The location of the hotel is ideal for those who wish to explore this fascinating tropical island and for those who need the option of unwinding or playing in the warm waters. Windsurfing, pedal boats, sailing dinghies, kayaks, glass-bottom boat trips and snorkelling are included within the All-Inclusive package. Available for a fee are speedboat rides, big game fishing and small game fishing.
