We were at the hotel at the same time as "AHappy traveller" and can agree largely with what has been said. However we have been to the hotel before although in peak season so we were somewhat disappointed with what we found. The pool bar was not open so that entailed a long walk from the pool to the bar inside. Yes waiters were very willing to get the drinks for you, but being short staffed it was a long wait! The plaza bar and the snack bar were also not open so if you or your child wanted some chips or ice cream it had to be at lunchtime or evening meal only. Not really all inclusive as we have experienced at other Riu hotels. Yes the staff are super and the animation team work very hard but largely they require the holiday makers to get involved as well, so if there are no takers it falls a bit flat. The hotel appeared to be about half full so they really had to work hard to get some response. So apart from those facilities not open the major drawback was the beach. Filthy! In the UK we live close to a Blue Flag beach (Cleethorpes in North Lincolnshire) which is cleaned each day using tractor driven mechanical cleaners. With labour being inexpensive in Tunisia it may be not economic to do the same but,come on, make some effort! Also in spite of being not full the cooking stations could not keep up with demand and very often long queues formed. The manager was aware of this since he watched the queues get bigger, usually standing in the way of the rest of us! Would we go again? Probably not but if you are desparate to give it a try (it is very good value for money) go in peak season when hopefully all the facilities are open
