I left this hotel yesterday at 5.30pm. I can honestly say that neither myself or my friend were happy to leave as we had the time of our lives! Every Tunisian person who spoke to us were charming. This included the reception who were very helpful on arrival, the waiters both in the restaurant and the all inclusive bar, the lovely cleaners who did an excellent job and gave us clean towels whenever we needed them and also the animation (entertainment) team. Sexy Joe, Alias and Selem were very entertaining and very friendly. They all did a great job and there was something for everyone from morning to night and all age groups were catered for too.
Before we left for the Orient Palace I had read some terrible reviews on tripadvisor but had decided to make the best of our bad choice of accomodation. I am so glad I did. It really was the best holiday we have ever had and between us Julie and I have been on quite a few!!
The food was tasty and presented well. I did hear one Russian man complaining to the waiter on my second day. Ironically this did not stop him or his company from being first in the queue every single mealtime and filling their tables to the brim with food and alcohol for the rest of the week!!!
We lay at the pool looking at the sea and vice versa, it was paradise. I could lay in my bed in my room and see the sea, it is really ideallic. The bar men and waiters were excellent too, especially Salem and the team who worked the evening shift, nothing was ever a bother to any of them.
My friend and I have no complaints what's so ever about our time at Orient Palace, please ignore ignorant people. I was very impressed with what we got for our money, it certainly was a fair deal and I am already making plans to go back. Happy holiday, go for the boat trip that Fateh and Ali are selling within the hotel. We did and it was a great experience, we had great fun. We just wish that we had booked up for longer as Tunisia is such a beautiful country we could have done so much more if we had time. We absolutely loved our holiday!!!
