We spent a week here and upgraded to a swim up room which was around 40 pound a night extra, the view was fantastic and was worth that bit extra as you also got your own sun loungers outside your room. All rooms are actually the same though and ours was spotless, nice bed, large flat screen LG on the wall, kettle, fridge and a safe etc... The pool are was good too, I liked it that they had lots of different types of sunbeds, not all just the same, they had hammocks and chairs and sofas and all sorts which made a nice change. There is a bar next to both pools, and the beach bar was good as they served snacks all day and at lunch they had a set menu, (burger, pizza, sandwiches etc however this was really nice and we went there every day. Another bonus to this hotel was the outdoor heated pool in the middle courtyard, this was amazing! This beach was also good as the hotel doesn't have hotels right next to it therefore it has quite a long stretch of beach to itself, also there are hardly any locals on it trying to sell you things! I think i saw one guy all week, and the beach has security guards too. Watersport - kayaks were free and everything else you had to pay for, however to be fair it was quite cheap. Jet ski was 50 dinar for 2 for 15 minutes. One of the best things about this hotel was the food, every night they do a different theme, Mexican, Italian, far east etc and the do actually change the food every night. The best food Ive had at an all inclusive, and the lager and wine isn't bad either. The staff are all really nice and helpful, I find Tunisians the nicest out of the Moroc/Egypty/Tun, the managers are constantly out and about all day and night too talking to people and making sure they are having a good time, and they actually do things for you if your not (we didn't need to ask for anything). Finally i think i could sum it up by saying i didn't see the Thomson rep all week because i didn't need to! would definitely return in the future but would maybe wait a couple more weeks until the end of April weather wise just so it is a little bit warmer. Any questions please ask!
Tip - No cash machine in hotel, there is an ATM about 3-4 minutes walk away, also there is a shop and currency exchange in the hotel and a Sheesha corner!! :)
