We spent 1 week at the Scheherazade for our honeymoon (10-17 August).
We were greeted with dancing and clapping which felt a little unnecessary but an alternative way to feel welcomed.
Hotel made a fuss of us as honeymooners by decorating the room with many rose petals, complimentary drinks and food. We had complimentary slippers (too small for my husband though he was adamant to wear them anyway) and dressing gowns which was a nice touch.
Our room had an excellent view of the beach and pool (we were on the second floor).
Food was of a high standard the majority of the time. We enjoyed the various themed evenings and there was only one night when my husband struggling to find something to his liking and he isn't a fussy eater. The Indian restaurant is exceptional and included in the price. Excellent food, service and ambiance to match. The only criticism of the main buffet restaurant is that it appeared that guests who tipped the waiters early on in their holiday had better service ie drinks being fetched. We're happy to tip, particularly when visiting a country such as Tunisia, but expect the service first.
Excellent service at the beach and poolside. A mattress will be fetched quickly for you when you choose a lounger, forget the day beds unless you're up very early ie 7am
There is a certain etiquette about the hotel which sets a peaceful, friendly and relaxed tone.
All staff great, extremely friendly, but a special mention to Iskander and Amir on reception. Iskander asked many times if we were enjoying our honeymoon which was lovely. It was really helpful that all staff could speak English. We had many conversations with our cleaner who was very smiley, chatty
and hard working.
Affordable water sports at the hotel and Ali baba excursions. We went jet skiing, quad biking and para sailing.
The cleanliness is excellent including the beach area which is cleaned, raked and dampened every morning.
Perfect holiday choice for a couple wanting a quality, relaxing holiday. :))
