This was my first time visiting Tunisia and it was very nice, lots of history and lots of places of interest to visit. The hotel, the staff here are amazing. so nice and very helpful and can not fault them one bit. they made the holiday. The Hotel, we had room 1217 which overlooked the sea and pool. Room was clean and nice. Not as outstanding as previous hotels my husband and I have stayed in. The fridge was only topped up with one bottle of orange Fanta and a litre of water a day. We asked the head waiter if we could have some beer left and after that each day 4 bottles were left in the fridge. The management at this hotel need to do something about the booking of beds, other travellers are booking the beach and pool beds between 4 - 5am and some do not even come to use these to 3pm in the afternoon, leaving those of us who want to sunbath all day in a position where beds are not available. This is the downside of the Hotel, until something is done about the bed hogging you need to be out before 7am to get a bed that is not 5 rows back and in the shade. the Hotel says 5 star and a Thompson Premier, this I don't agree with, we do the Premier 5 Star often and this Hotel did not match the general level of what it was saying it should be, you have to ask for extra water, normally there is water left in bathrooms for teeth, water on bedside tables, and water in fridge. here you just get one litre bottle per day until more is requested. the staff in the Tunisian and Italian restaurants are fantastic and we visit these on a few occasions. I preferred the restaurants to the buffet this was really down to the queuing and pushing you get the buffet which you dont get in the restaurants. This Hotel is not to far from Yasmin so when staying here I recommend you go and visit at least once, they have a good medina with great bargains on leather bags and shoes. we went out here a couple of times to shop and eat out, coming back to the Hotel I recommend the Tuk Tuk back instead of a taxi you will have lots of laughs, we agreed a price first but ended up giving him double (still very cheap) as it was worth every dina. Old Hammernet was a 20 minute taxi ride awayin the other direction and for only 8 dinar, well worth it. stopped at a lovely little restaurant and the medina was brilliant, so my advise is get out the Hotel and visit the local towns and sample the ambience of Tunisia, you see military men about but this does not matter, we felt safe and unthreatened the whole trip. to management at this Hotel, you need up the soft drinks and water in the fridges, two people ina room require more than one bottle of Fanta and water, and until the sunbeds hogging is dealt with, I would not be coming back to this Hotel which is a shame because the staff here work very hard and are brilliant.
