I'm astonished to read some of the negative comments regarding food etc as during our recent stay we were impressed with the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, the food is excellent with a wide range to suit all tastes - except the pizza and chips brigade but who goes to Tunisia for junk food? - the pool is very big and clean with plenty of loungers, all-inclusive really is just that with no restrictions. The staff are friendly and polite and although there was a problem with some noisy drunk Russians who got into a fight, the staff did what they could and were in no way responsible.
My wife is researching Tunisian recipes as we were so pleased with the food and the [head] chef, who made frequent appearances in the self-service dining room, obviously has a good deal of pride in his work and keeps his staff on their toes at all times, as do the service supervisors. What more do people want? What we did see however was a lot of gluttony and wasted food by diners who piled their plates so high and so often they couldn't eat anywhere near all they took; this says a lot about some tourists. We saw no evidence of the flies on food that others complained about, in fact we were more bothered by flies in our own back garden this summer! What's wrong with these people?
We met several others staying in other hotels in the same resort and their descriptions of the food and other facilities at their hotels, costing around the same, convinced us that our choice of hotel had definitely been the right one.
The hotel also has the advantage of being right on the beach, a benefit not present with the majority of hotels in Jasmine Hammamet, even some of the top-notch expensive ones, where guests had to cross main roads or walk several hundred yards to get to the beach.
All in all a very positive experience for us; we seldom go back to the same resort as we like to see different places, but if we go back to Tunisia we'll go back to this hotel.
