Honestly, I knew that I wasn't paying a lot of money; I knew what I was paying for; I'm not a picky person; I'm used to staying at hostels... but THIS was even below my lowest expectations!!!
Starting with hotel staff.. Every attempt to draw their attention to you fails. They just keep talking to each other. You are lucky if you speak French - then you won't have problem communicating.
Our room (aka bungalow) was horrible. My first words when we entered were "This is Sparta!" (honestly, no jokes). The bathroom is disgusting! Mirror was TAPED to the wall! Whenever you take shower, all the water just spills on the floor.. and you don't have a towel to put on the floor. Actually, towels are a whole topic for review! So, we had a double room, which obviously means TWO people. And there were two towels.. big one and small one.. No point in asking to bring you another one - won't happen. Towels are not changed! When already on the fourth day we just threw towels on the floor (to make it obvious that they have to be changed), nothing happened... They just stayed there...
Also please never leave valuable items lying around. Either put them in your suitcase (if you have a lock on it) or rent a safe (at the reception).
Air conditioning: yes, it's good that there is air conditioner. However it has only two working modes: on or off. You can't control the temperature; you can't put it higher or lower.. So, in the evening we would turn it on, then wake up in the middle of the night, turn it off (cause it was too cold), go back to sleep, then wake up in the early morning and put it on again (cause it was already hot in the room..)
Restaurant is horrible.. Dirty! And there is no air conditioning there - so it's VERY hot! The choice is not good and it's all the same every day. Additionally you have crowds of people and lines! You have to stay in line to get some dessert or fruit, or to get some potatoes..
Really, the only good thing about this hotel - is the beach. Very nice! White sand, clean water.. great!!! The beach is cleaned regularly. Btw, deckchairs are 1,5 dinars/day (if you want a matrass, then it's 1,5 dinars additionally).
Apart from all of these, this hotel is far from the center.
So, please, please, please, avoid this hotel!!!
