Our taxi driver on the way back to the airport summarised it well when he asked us if we enjoyed our stay and we responded with a polite "no not really" his response was...

The first word which pops up in my mind is really "AWESOME". I've never been to a place that beautiful, peaceful, full of happiness like the Récif Hotel: all the staff is gentle, smiling. The hotel manager, Mr. Raymond is so nice and friendly...this is so unusual. Evening animation, food, facilities, etc. >> waouw ! :) My wife and I... More

Recif is located on the North West of the Island, between Port Louis and Grand Bay. The weather on the west of the island is definitely much better than the east, which we found quite windy. I would recommend hiring a scooter at reception and using it to visit Grand Bay, makes for a really exciting day. The management at... More

The staff at this hotel are its best asset. Facilities are OK and the hotel is a lovely size at about 70 rooms. We had a de luxe sea view room which was worth the extra money with superb views from the balcony and possible to photograph great sunsets (weather (permitting). Beds are somewhat hard and could do with replacing... More

Hotels in Mauritius are hardly on the cheap side, so when I say good value, this hotel is still a fair amount of money when compared with other countries. but for Mauritius it is a great deal.

Upon arrival we were booked to room number 109, which is the most run-down room we have ever experienced. Even the travel agent representative whom we showed the room was shocked. Only after negotiating for 2 days with the management and the GM we were given an acceptable room. The only nice thing to be said about this place is... More

A smaller hotel, just what we wanted. Pointe aux Piments (West side of the Island) is the best side if you don't want too much wind. The service was perfect. Every night free live music.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the north west of Mauritius, Recif Attitude is a must if you want to go back to essentials, to recharge your batteries, to spend time together as a family or as a couple, to spend time with friends...Nestled in a white sandy creek overlooking a beautiful natural marine preserve, this "Adult Only" hotel is an invitation to farniente. Guests can spend hours chatting, sipping an exotic cocktail bare feet in the sand or in one of the cosy sitting corners... At sunset, the ideal spot to watch that enormous orange sun entering the sea slowly...Dressed in white and wood, Recif Attitude is a mix of comfort, vibrant Mauritian soul and boutique hotel spirit. The 70 room hotel with its cubical architecture, modern furniture and refined design, is decorated with taste. Warm welcome, caring and discreet staff, together with unique body care and facials of the Spa Attitude, without forgetting the seafood restaurant, contribute to the subtle luxury of this 3 star sup. ... more   less
