The pictures are fairly accurate, the grounds are clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The beach area is lovely with beautiful views of Il Le Serf in the distance. One of the kids was stung by a jelly fish and the hotel support was amazing. Within minutes he was in a car and on his way...

I went there last week and I was really delighted by the excellent customer approach by the staff. The food was great. The beach is beautiful. The entertainment on the Saturday evening was splendid. It is still afresh in our mind and the staff were very friendly. The quality of food and hotel overall is excellent.

This is a lovely small hotel. It's not big or flashy like the Lux or the Residence. It's just like a relaxed friend's house. The rooms are basic - but the sea is 5 Star! The staff are all so friendly and kind. Service with a smile! Our favourites were: Bhim - a great Liverpool football fan Vic deputy manager...

Stayed at Friday Attitude for 2 weeks Sep/Oct 2016. It is a relatively small but very friendly hotel right on the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a sea view apartment. Only one Buffett style Restaurant but the food was good and there was always something to satisfy and enjoy. Be careful on the drinks served as they do not...

We were tired and late arrivals at Friday Attitude at 21h00. Light snacks, thoughtfully prepared by the kitchen staff, was sent to our lovely air conditioned room. The staff of this hotel are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The sheltered swimming pool is a great alternative for very windy days or for the children to enjoy their kiddie pool. The restaurant...

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.
