First time to Tunisia and I would definitely go back :) The Hotel was lovely and our room was spacious with great facilities but make sure you take your own hairdryer as the ones at the hotel are quite weak and if you have thick hair like mine it takes forever. If you decide to stay at this hotel make sure you request a room on the 4th floor as they have been recently refurbished and ask for a sea view=gorgeous.
The food was good but got a bit samey after a while but there was a wide range of different foods to choose from. This kept us going. The waiters were lovely and very helpful also.
One down side to the hotel was that we had to tip to get excellent service from some workers (others didn’t require a tip and still gave excellent service). To get a sunbed each day you had to tip the pool guy to make sure he has one reserved for you otherwise it is very difficult to find one. When our bags were taken up to our room we had to tip the porter but he was not happy with the amount and slammed the door on us which I found very rude.
The entertainment team on the other hand were fantastic. Rico, Timo, Laska, Jo, Bebo and Fifi are all lovely and made our stay very enjoyable. Without them our stay would not have been as good and at times quite boring. There was entertainment every evening without fail and during the day you had the choice of doing different activities which gave me a nice break from my partner ;). Very friendly and fun loving people.
If you decide to do Zulu as an excursion with Thompson then be prepared to hang around at the zoo for 4 hours instead of 1.5 hours which was stated. It’s small and only took us an hour to walk around it twice. The evening show is good but the food is very average.
The pirates and gladiators excursion was great. Got to visit the coliseum where gladiator was filmed and then spent a few hours on a pirate ship where we saw dolphins, had bbq food, watched belly dancing, and jumped off into the sea.
Overall the resort was gorgeous, the people were friendly and everything was cheap and cheerful. I would definitely recommend to anyone planning on visiting Tunisia.
