To start, Thomas Cook cook rate this a 5 star, do not fall for this as it is actually a 4.
When we arrived we were greeted with a drink and a hot towel before being taken to our rooms quickly. The room was spacious, modern, and very clean. We had a large wardrobe each which was a nice touch, and the balcony is spacious. Even though we did not have a sea view, what we did have was not bad at all, it was an interesting scenery.
Food was all round good, travelling with a vegetarian can prove complicated with regards eating, but there are plenty of options for fussy eaters. Breakfast was ok, the weakest course by far. The hot food selection was dreary, the only thing I enjoyed was the beef sausages. The bacon is very odd and was pretty much inedible and the scrambled eggs looked pretty watery. They do have a cook making omelettes and fried eggs which are slightly better than the rest. They had some doughnut-esque things that were really good, especially with the different jams that were on offer, it is just a shame that they were not provided every day. Fresh bread and croissants with jam is what you get for the continental, it's better than nothing, but they should be a little bit more imaginative.
Lunch is great, we enjoyed lunch every single day we were there and do not have any complaints. Waiters are friendly and do not hesitate to give you a second beer when you have barely touched the first, which I cannot complain about. There is fresh bread and fruit alongside a good selection of dessert. The ice cream is not the best. Vegetarian food was again pretty good most days, some days it was a bit scarce but a good excuse to have pizza and chips!
Dinner buffet was just a supercharged lunch buffet, so no complaints there really. But we do have a fairly large complaint about the Tunisian restaurant. After explaining to the waiter that one of us was a vegetarian, the only 2 courses we bothered to stay for had meat in them. Once is forgivable, but twice is plain inconsiderate. And the meat option I had contained bones all the way through, (it was a spring roll sort of thing so I would have never expected that)
The international restaurant though was excellent, very considerate chef and waiting staff and worth every dinar tipped. The food was different and well prepared every time we went, which was 3 times in total. The managerial type staff that was there very nice (Mr M-something) and his catchphrase "Nice surprise?" was very funny. We tipped generously and on the last night he gave us a 5 seat table for the 2 of us, and a nicer variety of wine. Very enjoyable indeed.
Pool and facilities are all good and clean and the beach is good apart from the men who are constantly trying to sell you rotting fruit and cheap scarves.
Tipping goes a long way, you get better service and stronger drinks etc when you tip more generously. We would usually do a dinar for a drink every now and then so they remembered us and it worked well.
All in all a good ten days spent here, but there is not so much going on around, if you are a traveller who does not like to spend too much time in the hotel I would recommend somewhere else, but for relaxing this is a great hotel.
Also do not waste your money on the massages, the salt water pool is fun but it was not worth it. I had a man do mine which i found very uncomfortable and it was more of a rub down which was kind of displeasing, and he also had bad breath.
