We liked the small resort size, everything was in easy reach and in a beautiful garden setting. The pool was rather small, but we preferred the lovely beach anyway and the snorkelling. One negative thing to mention is that there is only 1 male and 1 female toilet down there (for the people laying on the beach and also for...

We were promptly sent for breakfast, but then had to wait a while before we were given our rooms. Apparently check in was 2pm which would have been...

Dear Sir/Madam, What can I say and where do I start from?

Lovely hotel fab location. If I had to be picky... Bad: As many have said food was hit and miss, but if you are coming all the way to Mauritius for the food you are missing the point really.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Totally renovated, Friday Attitude (ex Bougainville Hotel) is a 3 star sup hotel, situated in Trou d'Eau Douce, along the east coast of Mauritius. Built along a very wide beach of fine white sand and a protected lagoon, the hotel is appreciated, among other things, for its genuineness, its cool atmosphere, its welcome and the availability of its family members. The 51 rooms, including newly designed family unit with a separate kids' room, are decorated in a contemporary and refined style. Guests are guaranteed total exotic new surroundings between the swaying branches of the filao trees, the elegant paradisiacal Ile aux Cerfs on the horizon and the lagoon with its hues of blues and greens. Friday Attitude is totally adapted for beach holiday as a couple, a family or with friends. Sea activities lovers are spoilt. ... more   less
