Returned yesterday from 1 week holiday. Arrived at approx 10.45 at night. Greeted on arrival by staff and taken immediately to the restaruant - which was great as we were starving. Didnt; queue to check in - we were seated in receipt and brought choclate and cocktails whilst filling out the forms.
Had a juniour suite swim up room - room was very nice but the bathroom was a letdown. No tiles on the wall. it looked like they had been plastered and waterproofed! Room was clean but could have been better.
Gardens were very well kept. Views amazing - especially sunrise.
Several people have already mentioned the comfortable sunbed situation. I think the hotel needs to do something about this. I witnessed people putting towels on the sunbeds at 11pm!!!! However, there are plenty of beds on the beach - all with umberellas. The towels supplied are not big at all (small bath towel size) so I would reommedn taking your own!
The beach was by far the cleanest around. One morning all the staff from clearer through to manager's were on the beach cleaning it up.
Food in the restaurant was to a good standard and the beach bar served food prepared for you rather than buffet. I didn't drink much but what i did have was ok - not great.
We did see a few people being stung by jellyfish but were informed that they are not norammly present at this time of year and that it was due to unusually high temperatures. The lifeguards treated the stings.
The sea was a bit disappointing. There seems to be plastic bags floating it it. You will see a lot of disgarded plastic bags in Tunisia!
There are several waterports avaialbe at a cost (apart from canooeing which is free).
The staff in the main could not do enough for you - whether you tipped them or not.
We were given a courtesey room to shower in as we had an evening flight. Room was exactly the same as our room so I don;t know why they just didn't let us keep our room??
Entertainment .... The usual things - belly dnacing, fire eaters etc. The duo entertainers who were based at the hotel were not good at all - but that was quite funny in itself! However, the guy who played the guitar and sang during eveing meal was fantastic - he should do all the entertainment!
All in all, a good holiday. Service and food make it a 4 star
