Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Asmaa N wrote a review Feb 2024
Sousse, Tunisia4 contributions
From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with warmth and hospitality that set the tone for the entirety of my stay. The hotel's facilities were top-notch, boasting clean and spacious rooms with modern amenities that ensured a comfortable stay. However, what truly set this hotel apart was its exceptional animation team of chef MUSTAPHA . Led by a group of talented individuals, the animation team went above and beyond to ensure guests had a memorable experience. Throughout my stay, I was thoroughly entertained by a diverse range of activities and performances organized by the animation team. From lively poolside games to captivating evening shows, there was never a dull moment. What impressed me the most was the team's dedication and enthusiasm in engaging with guests of all ages, ensuring everyone felt included and entertained. Moreover, the animation team's professionalism and creativity were evident in every aspect of their work. Whether it was a themed party or a dance class, they always managed to exceed expectations and leave a lasting impression. In addition to the fantastic entertainment, the hotel's staff were attentive and accommodating, always ready to assist with any requests or inquiries. The dining options were also excellent, offering a variety of delicious cuisines to suit every palate:to the next time for suuuure <3 <3 <3

It was, for the hotel, low season so many of the exciting faciities were closed. The bedroom was a good size, the shower room had a seperate toilet, there was a small balcony with a distant view of the sea. The all inclusive, including afternoon tea, was good. Lots of choice both hot and cold and a good selection of non and alcoholic drinks. The service throughout the hotel was good.

We enjoyed our half term break here. Especially enjoyed activities with animation team like archery, darts and yoga (Bruno, Marco & Zyno). No pressure at all to take part. The food was great. Such a variety and the time & effort that went into the Valentines dinner was impressive. Thanks to Firos in the restaurant, he was fabulous. Night entertainment was okay but would prefer more live music......not really a karaoke person myself. As for local area, the hotel has the best local beach. Lovely sand and drinks on tap at the beach bar. It's clear of rubbish and the staff keep the touts away. If you walk into Sousse it takes about 45 mins along beach. Good advice is Trust No-one. Lots of locals claim to be hotel staff (but are not). scams everywhere, everyone trying to extract cash from you. Very intense pestering in Town!!! Overall, the hotel facilities and staff were great, my kids really want to go back. It's worth going just for the food. One point to improve would be to have change at reception for the pool tables & air hockey. We kept being told no change available even at the currency changer which is incredible. Consider removing the pool tables unless you can provide change!!

We have just returned from a week away. Never been to tunisia before and we wouldn't return. The hotel does have its plus points and maybe in summer you would get a better experience. All the staff are super friendly, mostly everybody working there has a smile and greeting for you every time they pass you by. The hotel grounds are very clean. Cleaners in your rooms do a very good job. Rooms are spacious and all you need for your stay with plenty of storage. Indoor pool area clean. There are 2 lifts for the entire hotel. One broke on our 2nd day and was still broke when leaving so one lift for the entire hotel was a pain. Constantly waiting and then going up and down serval times before you even get to where you want to go. Not a massive issue if your on the 1st floor but if your on the 5th floor or have mobility issues it is a pain. Not much to do for teens, we tried the crazy golf and it is indeed crazy. Never experienced one like it. Brought out more anger in the kids than a family game of monopoly. Main issue for us was the food. Yes there's a wide selection as they say but I'm afraid the quality is just bad. Anything near the pasta and pizza station is pot luck as you literally have no clue what is in or on anything. I tried the spaghetti in the white sauce and it just tasted like pasta water. Lots of things described as meat and vegetables in some sort of stew but I'm not a fan of mystery meat, also the same with the meat and liver option. When you ask your always told its beef but I can say with confidence it is not beef. Most nights it was turkey, again a wide selection.... Turkey escalopes,Turkey leg or Turkey skewers. Yes there were other meats on other nights but again the quality is just poor. Most meats not in a stew for have some weird yellow/green colour to them all that really doesn't look appealing. Lots of mixed dessert in the sense that they are different shapes and colours but mostly just mousse type items with rafts of gelatine in them. I did look at some pictures of the food before I booked and it honestly is nothing like what we got. The restaurant staff noticed on the 5th evening that we had not eaten again in the evening and insisted we speak to the restaurant manager who could help,but he basically just took me round showing me the different options and reading the cards.?? Insisting there was plenty to choose from but its just not good.Husband was violently ill on the 4th day,since returning home yesterday all 4 of us have been up all night fighting for our chance to use the bathroom . There are taxis outside the hotel grounds. Please be aware that the ask for 20 dinar to go anywhere. From the uk being charged £5 doesn't sound too bad so you just pay it, but looking at the meters its only about a 7 dinar trip to the medina or the marina so make sure you barter and pay 10 dinar as that's a fair price. There's a bowlnroll bowling alley about a 15 minute walk from the hotel which is good value (30 dinar for 4 people) they also serve food and drinks and have pool tables darts etc. There is also a kfc,papa johns about 5-10 minutes further up from the bowling just incase you need it. About 15 mins from the harbour there's also a hard rock cafe that was really nice. Nothing to do with the hotel but be aware and cautious when out and about as there's constantly people pestering you when your out and about. Trying to sell you alsorts from flowers to nuts and tissues?? Immediately outside of the hotel we were offered weed or cocaine. In the food halls in papa johns we were approached with women and children asking for food and money. Also beware of people wanting to show you "government " shops. It just means they want to show you into a shop that will charge you 4 or 5 times more than any other shop around but they will offer you a seat and a bottle of water whilst they try to coax you out of the contents of your purse. So all in all, the hotel itself would probably get a 3.5 out of 5 from is but the food would get a 1 and that is truly being generous. Theres not loads to do out about and to be honest when your constantly harassed its just not worth the hassle. So 2 out of 5 from us. Unfortunately I couldn't recommend

Probably would have been a 4* trip when in season , main pool near beach shut as well as various other areas such as beach bar/cafe. Very noisy hotel from 6am until midnight/1am so sleep can be effected with corridors that echo quite a lot and doors that slam. Food is of a decent ish standard however very repetitive. Staff are very friendly , probably the friendliest hotel staff we’ve had abroad. Maids/cleaners do a very good job daily , bar staff will always wait on you at your table and always recommend a small tip. Animation team were all very good and a special mention to Bob , on a daily basis would always have a chat with you and make you feel very welcome so 5* for him.
