“Just can't keep away!!!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Just returned from my 8th visit to Les Orangers, this hotel and it's staff seem to get better with every visit (if that was possible!!).

There are still staff working at the hotel who were there on our first visit in 1998 - it really is like meeting family again - the welcome is always so warm and genuine.

The hotel is always clean, is in a fabulous position right on the beach, set in gorgeous gardens, we normally stay in the beach front block, the rooms are spacious, comfortable and have glorious sea views across Hammamet bay. Plenty of room to enjoy the sun either on the beach, round the outdoor pool, the large seating area between the two bars - or if you like it very quiet and secluded the terraced area outside the indoor swimming pool.

Does anything about this hotel annoy me?

Yes! The petty complaints and moans - usually from British guests!

Not enough choice at breakfast!!?? What about eggs? hard boiled, soft boiled, scrambled, fried to your preferences. Turkey, pork or frankfurter style sausages, beans, omelettes (choice of ingredients), waffles, crepes, fresh doughnuts, choice of cereals, cold meats, cheeses, salad, cakes. Different types of bread, croissants, pastries - there is much more that I can't remember. Coffee choices, tea choices, fresh orange juice, choice of chilled juices.

There is always ample choices of meals at lunchtime or dinner, stews, pastas, chicken, fish, vegetarian, salads, soups, cakes, ice cream etc. Not to mention stirfry's, burgers, paninis, pizza and crepes served during the day.

Not all the choices were to my liking, for example I don't eat veal - but there was nothing wrong with the food - I certainly didn't go hungry, and there is always the a la carte menu if you want something different.

The hotel was catering for up to seven different nationalities whilst we were there, not just British! If you do have an issue with the food, or dietary requirements talk to the management - they will bend over backwards to help you.

I overheard guests complaining that if you didn't tip waiters etc. you received poor service, absolute rubbish!!! Do people think they would still be in a job if that was their attitude? It is worth remembering that tipping is customary in Tunisia (just as it is in America!), and a couple of dinar tip (about 80p), is not going to break the bank.

For first time visitors it is worth remembering you are in an African, mostly Muslim country - things are done differently here - but go with an open mind, have a go at bartering (if you feel brave), immerse yourself in the rich Tunisian culture and you'll have a great time.

We've already booked for a week in January at Les Orangers, our daughter loves the place and wants to celebrate her 21st birthday there.

Room Tip: Read about the resort and the country before you visit! Rooms in the beach front block are of a h...

Don't even know where to start!!

There are far too many good things about this hotel. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed with a cold drink and were given some information about meal times Etc, a porter took our bags to our room and pointed us in the right direction of the 24 hour bar, the barman was lovely and there were some other guests drinking, they were all very friendly and gave us a clue on how much to tip and the best places to go etc. We spent most of our time by the pool and were waited on hand and foot by the waiters, who we did tip as they didn't stop all day! The food was better then you get on any normal all inclusive, there was always a wide selection, and although things were laid out a bit back to front this wasn't a massive issue and definitely not the end of the world! The Panini guy at the pool, is in a word a legend!! would also recommend the wok bar down on the beach restaurant but go easy with the chilli sauce!! The evening staff were just as amazing, especially Monty, he's the one always shouting Keith Lemon quotes!! The animation team were the best (TOO MANY TO NAME!! SORRY GUYS!), always came over to say hello asking you if everything was ok, or even for just a chat, Danny and Mido wouldn't think twice about sitting on your sunbed with you just for a friendly chat or to have a bit of banter with my partner about the footie, which I thought was lovely! they did try to get you involved in the pool games or archery but were far from pushy. All of the guests in the hotel were friendly, even some of the Germans! The hotel has the best part of the beach by far and there are plenty of water sports, camel or horse riding to keep you entertained.

Would advise you to go to the welcome meeting, with the Thomas Cook rep Mahair, he is hilarious. That aside he is very upfront and gives the best advice on how to deal with the shopkeepers and the market.

I could go on forever, but I'll leave you to figure out the rest if your lucky enough to be booked into this hotel!

All in all, we loved this holiday and will definitely be returning next year!

This hotel was exactly what we've been looking for. Not going to go on and on about the good points because it would take too long. I'll just cover the negatives, only thing is there were none. We will be joining the long list of returning guests.

We are a young couple who always go all inclusive to Spain, Greece etc, but have never had an all inclusive hotel quite like this!! it is EXCELLENT! the service is exceptional and NO ONE prompts for a tip..we went with little money and didn't tip but all the waiters, bartenders and staff said hello with a smile on their face, have great english and always had a laugh and joke with you and would ask how you are etc. You literally don't need to walk a step as they serve all day to where your sitting whether it on a lounger by the pool or at night at the tables to watch the entertainment! all the soft drinks are proper brands like coca cola, fanta and tropicana juices which we have also never had before!

The food was also lovely! There is constantly food being served all day every day! The buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner were perfect with plenty of variety! Also during the day there is a snack bar at the beach and beside the bar which do homemade burgers, paninis, fajitas and pizzas! The pizzas were amazing! So you will get plenty of food and drink here!!

We stayed in a basic room which was lovely! It was spotless and had everything you need, hair dryer, fridge, tv, air conditioning, kettle etc! The bed was comfy, the showers were excellent and we didnt have a sea view but because this hotel has aamzing shrubbery and lemon, orange and olive trees we looked onto lovely flowered bushes with hammocks and well maintained garden areas! I have seen some people saying the rooms are dated but if your anything like us all we did was sleep and shower in the room so I don't see why on sun holiday you would need anything more than what you get?!

The animation team were SUPERB!! They are a group of enthusiastic people who have excellent day time entertainment with things constantly going on like waterpolo, games by the pool, archery, darts etc. There is also an office where you can get ping pong bats and tennis rackets for the courts and they also have loads of board games and reading books in all languages for you to use like a library free of charge! Mido, Danny and Brian really stood out for us as they were always saying hello and having a chat with guests around the pool and were full of energy and fun!! They had excellent english, french and german and all round made our holiday!

The only thing from the whole holiday we would criticize is they have a lot of dancing shows on as the evening entertainment and as we were there 10 nights we found that half of them was a similar show with the entertainment team dancing and miming to similar songs and feel an improvement could be made there. However, ALL the different shows they did like the comedy sketch show, Miss Election show and the couples show were hilarious, full of life and very entertaining.

We have recommended this hotel to our parents who are travelling to Tunisia next year and also think we may well book for this same hotel again for 2015!

we went for a week, the weather was very good, the room was cleaned every day, the food wasn't my liking also my hubby has had a bad tummy all week, if you don't tip you don't get good service I think that is wrong has you have paid enough for your holiday anyway. the beach was lovely. we will not be going again to that hotel.

Room Tip: we had a basic room, you need a sea view, as our room was dated.

Location and an excellent group of staff make this hotel a holiday to remember. Special treatment at lunch and evening meals, bar staff and entertainment team always greeting you with a smile. A special mention for the 24 hour bar, Mr Ali and his team full of fun - had a good laugh with these guys every night. Will be back in July, might have a brandy or two - if its back in stock!

A few days ago we returned from a fabulous week at The Orangers. We travelled as a couple, this hotel really does cater for everybody as there was a nice mix of younger couples, older couples and families. After reading some great reviews we were really excited to see if it lived up, and it did not disappoint. We arrived early morning and were greeted with an orange juice and our bags took to our room. The room was pretty standard, we paid extra for a sea view room, although it was a bit on the small side, the view was well worth it, got a good sleep each night as the rooms have air conditioning and black out curtains.
Food and drink - wow what a selection. There was something different every night for dinner, there is always food available 24 hours and we especially loved the pool snacks including paninis and hot doughnuts. Tried the Tunisian A La Carte once, but we definitely preferred the dinner buffet! Drinks were nice, i had cocktails every night. There is also someone squeezing oranges into a jug at breakfast which was to die for, only thing i would say is that it would have been devine if the oranges were refrigerated!
Activities wise we were never bored, the animation team really work hard to make sure everyone has fun, we did archery, water polo, water gym and went horse riding 3 times! The equestrian centre is a 2 minute walk away, which was the highlight for me. Went beach riding and also in the school, and had a little canter. Horses are great but the guy who worked there was a bit creepy, and snappy! which put me off, otherwise I would have done it every day!
We loved the evening entertainment, you have just got to enjoy it for what it is. A different show every night with some amazing dancing! Especially loved getting involved with the club dance every night!! The only downside is that is finishes at 10.30pm, there is a disco but the speakers were that bad in there that we couldn't stay in it! There is next to nothing outside the hotel, we went out into Hammamet once and regretted it. Just to a couple of empty bars and getting pestered on the street, didn't feel safe outside the hotel.
Did a day trip through TC to the animal park and on a pirate ship - would definitely recommend! Held a baby lion cub at the zoo and the pirate ship was loads of fun.
The absolute best thing about this hotel is, as everyone says - the staff. They make this place what it is. Make sure you have a few coins for tips because they thoroughly deserve it. They all work massively long shifts and will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy and comfortable. They bring you drinks all day long in the heat. Special shout out the Monshi the pool attendant, he is the nicest guy! Always brought you a mattress for sunbed in the morning. The animation team are also brilliant, they make time for each and every guest.
We completely enjoyed this holiday and so glad we picked this hotel and we are already planning our next visit later this year!!
