I just came back from 3 days at Villa Didon and this is the first time i write a review because this was too expensive for what it was ! Too upsetting as well ! So it has to come out !
Location is great, view is fantastic, these are the nice things. Now the rest : shower, choice between boiling water and cold one ! When you were done with trying to shower, you had the choice between white and grey towels, stick to the white ones as the grey are the kind of towels which give you the feeling they are already wet and will not dry your body much, same for the bathrobes. Breakfast, 20 eur per person, for coffee and 3 basic mini-croissant and 2 slices of toast bread, butter and jam of course where there, a glass of orange juice (the only tasty thing)!Below average and not worth 2 stars as breakfast, in such a hotel one expects min nice bread, we ended up going early for a Coffee down the street near the monoprix where a breakfast was at 3 eur in a very nice (bistro like) surrounding and had nice baguette, eggs, croissants and orange juice as well !
Friday night was party in the hotel, so if you do not like modern techno you better sleep somewhere elso as the music will follow you to your room and unless the party is over believe me there is no way to sleep.
We asked the hotel to organize a rental car and this one was 156000 km, so i let you imagine how it looked ! Dirty and dusty and costing 75 eur/day !
Taxi ordered by the hotel always charged the double, so just walk down to the monoprix and get yourself a cheaper one.
I spend half of my time in hotels, i am very picky and i choosed this one not to have any surprises in Tunisia ! I ended up paying a lot, being upset half of the time (towels, shower, breakfast)...
You can meet celebrities there for sure, and see the rich tunisians go by, the spa you can try as we did and this was very nice experience to try the hammam ! though i had some appointments for some treatments and this they cancelled at the last minute because i found out some regular guest was there and had priority obviously.
Conclusion : i would not go there again because to pay 220 eur per night and have no decent towels and shower, i say no never again !
