Nice stay
Just returned from 10 days at the Ravenala Attitude, wonderful young and friendly staff, easily got sunbeds and reservations for the many restaurants. Basic evening entertainment, small group, dj or sega dancers. Spotlessly clean all round and the restaurant meals were mostly good, drinks were not premium unfortunately so took a while to find the decent ones. I got the impression the hotel was not full but I may be wrong about that. All in all had a good time and would consider staying at the Ravenala again.

Having just returned from a lovely family holiday I don’t normally write reviews but thought I would share my positives and negatives. Positives: staff! They are wonderful, so friendly, always happy to help and share all of their top tips and fixed anything that we had an issue with which really made any of our issues no problem at all!! They moved our room as we were at the far end of the hotel to be closer to the pool which was great Great water sports facilities - snorkelling trips, glass bottom boat, kayaks, sups etc. Good choice of restaurants although food could be a bit hit and miss! Riveria was definetley worth the extra cost. Madame Ming was lovely. Kids club was great and so much on offer. Dolphin watching, swimming with turtles 1.5hr boat trip was great (4,500MR) Negatives - facilities are quite tired and cleaning in rooms/communal toilets could be better. Our air con was very noisy and leaked as well as the baths. Tick ridden stray dogs which are not looked after by the hotel. A comment we had previously read which didn’t affect our perception as already aware but to note the water can be less ‘Indian ocean’ due to the river meeting the sea, the sand is a little building sand but perfect shallow calm waters for kids to swim in. Quite a few restaurant choices although mainly all located next to each other and food was quite hit and miss. The pool was green and cloudy most of the stay which seemed to be due to an over chemical use. Overall a great stay

This is a lovely property and the staff is very friendly and really try to do their best to accommodate requests. The food is okay. There is a lot of variety, catering to many different tastes, and you should absolutely make every effort to book into as many of the restaurants covered by the all inclusive deal as possible. That said, they are a mixed bag. We really enjoyed Madame Ming and Kot Nou and wished we had managed to get into the Beach BBQ for dinner but were unable. We ate there at lunchtime however, which is pretty nice. We didn't have as great experiences at 'O', a Tavola or Bistrot - the last two relating to the food, but the first, to the service, which just left us a little underwhelmed at the end of the evening. The pools are super, the beach is pretty, and they are right alongside one another so it's easy to go back and forth between them. The room was comfortable though with there kids, we were a little cramped - that's probably our fault, not the hotel's. We may not stay there again, having done it for ten days, but we certainly would recommend others put this hotel on their list of ones to consider. The pictures do it justice and if you really want to just unwind and do nothing, the Ravanela Attitude will do the trick.

After the initial disappointment of checking in the staff did make amends and ensured we had a better experience and offered a complementary couples massage as a gesture of goodwill which was appreciated

This is a lovely hotel. The reception area is really impressive when entering the hotel. We stopped in an Executive Beachfront room which was huge. All the restaurants were good, none of the evening ones covered by the all inclusive were exceptional, but they were all good. We did use Lime, the Sushi restaurant, at lunchtime which was superb. Overall, I would highly recommend the hotel.

The Ravanela was truly outstanding. Stayed 11 days in Maurutius first at the Hilton in Flic En Flac which was also amazing then onto Ravanela. Our experience was cut short due to covid-19. The first day was unbelievable so many choices of restaurants food was great / pool was great. Not the best beachas the water isn't clear but that's not the hotels fault 😛 couldn't enjoy the last four days as Maurituis went into lockdown so ended up onky 50 of us in the hotel. The staff were great service did slip but understandable. Looking forward to coming back here 8n a few years to experience it properly.

Everything was perfect about the hotel/resort. Staff, Amenities, restaurants, rooms etc Only one complain and it's very important hence 4 stars instead of 5 stars. You charge for drinks at lunch and dinners for half board and full board guests. I mean you charge for water, tea, coffee and fruit juices at lunch and dinners I don't expect alcoholic drinks for free but water , tea coffee when you are full /half board it's not right. you need to review this policy. the quality of the hotel/resort doesn't reflect with this policy. Otherwise we had a good stay.

6/10 Good

We liked 2 things: 1) cost that we paid to be in the area relative to other hotels; and 2) the size of the rooms (quite large). We were very disappointed with everything else. To start, Preet from the reception / checkin area was extremely rude and disrespectful to us. She needs to be removed from dealing with customers directly as she has no idea how to do this. There were lots of flies everywhere - at breakfast, at the dinner, at the beach BBQ, they are all over your food. The food options were also not good. Additionally, the sheets in the room were stained and the room was 15 minute walk from the reception. There were mattresses thrown in the hallways (dirty). All in, I would not recommend or stay here again - unless you just don’t have the money to stay elsewhere.
