Medina Solaria & Thalasso

Reviewed 13 August 2014

We stayed in this hotel for 6 days in August 2014... There were four of us, incl 2 boys ages 5 and 8, we got a large room with two huge beds, nice bathroom, no balcony but lovely sea view.

Swimming pool of good size and never full, slide was a hit with the little one.

Good choice of tasty food but we were expecting more from 5 star hotel.

Lovely animation team!!! Even though we didn't participate we could tell they took care of people. I'm only worried they were overloaded with work as we could see them there all day every day.

Great location, close to everything!!!! Marina, Aqualand, carthageland, marina, medina...

Nice experience for the whole family.

I didnt know what to expect as I hadnt been to Tunisia for many years. As a family with four teenagers we were not disapointed.
The hotel was clean and the staf were very friendly and couldnt be more helpful. The pool was a little small but there were lots of sunbeds and the pool men were fab! Even though we stayed there last week in the school summer holidays we never had a problem with sunbeds. The pool men found us beds and mattresses and often umbrellas even when it was busy or later in the day.
The rooms were clean,comfortable and a good size. The beds were hard but not uncomfortable. Our room overlooked the sea but it is worth mentioning that there is a road between the beach and the hotel and it can be a bit noisy. The rooms have fridges but arent stocked as some are in other all inclusive hotels. There are toiletries but are basic so I would suggest that you take your own and not rely on the hotel.
The hotel offers good currency exchange with rates the same as the banks etc. The hotel has a gift shop that sells the normal copy goods that you will get outside and they are open to negotiation. However there is a very good shop next door called Costa Mall which offers copy goods, food,drink and gifts. The store is modern,very clean and good value for money but not open to negotiation on price.
The amination team were very good natured and more than happy to do whatever they could to give you all a good time. The entertainment in the day was really good but the evening left a bit to be desired.
Food was plentiful but a bit repetitive as it normally is in buffet styled restaurants and it was very difficult to get booked into the a la carte restaurants and the Italian one was closed when we were there.
If your expecting USA style 5 star all inclusive you wont get it but spain/greek/cararies A.I you wont be disapointed in this hotel.

Room Tip: Seaviews are across a road that can sometimes be noisy.

Hotel is lovely, maids keep it very clean everyday and are always greeting you hello. The hotel is situated right near the beach and is a lovely view from the hotel room. The food is very nice and the waiters are so friendly and helpful. The staff around the pool are the happiest and friendliest people you will meet, always playing games and keeping the guests entertained. DJ Marwen and the new boy Sami are very entertaining and lovely people. I would recommend this holiday to anyone so is looking for a friendly and entertained holiday. Very much enjoyed my time here.

Hotel is situated next to the beach with amazing views. The staff are really friendly and helpful. DJ Marwen was on the animation team and really made our holiday. I would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a sunny get away near the beach.

I stayed for a week at this hotel with my boyfriend at the end of July and overall we had a great time. We arrived late in the evening, warmly greeted. In general, the staff were very friendly and helpful in an amazing variety of languages!

We spent the week by the pool and the animation team were great with the day time activities and very friendly. DJ Marwen and Sami were fab. My boyfriend ended up playing football and water polo most days and the strong man contest!

The location is good right on the beach...however despite the other good reviews, we found the beach to be quite dirty and piles of rubbish so we opted to stay by the pool. We heard other English guests mention it too and was no comparison to other beaches I have visited in Tunisia.

The room was spacious with everything you need. The only thing I would add which I have found useful in other hotels would be bottled water in the fridge. Alot of the rooms overlook the courtyard which is where the evening entertainment takes place. The entertainment is very low key but can be noisy if your room over looks this. We stayed in the bar and courtyard most evenings watching the stage and chatting, but this might be a problem if you wanted an early night.

The food was good, plenty of variety for the week we were there, with salads, soups, hot dished and traditional Tunisian nights. Our waiter (Malek) was great, saved our table for us every night and even arranged a table of flowers for us on our last night!

Thomas Cook have no rep visits to this hotel which would have been preferable just for half hour or so, but this had nothing to do with the hotel, and just noted if this is who you book with.

Overall a great week, except for our experience of the beach! I would go back for another week away. We were made to feel very welcome.

just returned from an 11 night all inclusive stay at the Solaria..excellent hotel made even better by the people and staff that run it on a day to day basis, special thanks to the staff on reception, the housekeeper and the cleaner of 1001.also to our waiter Ahmed Mathlouthi and Hichem the lifeguard at the the beach and Hichem the waiter/barman who runs the beach bar.
the hotel is exceptionally clean and holds a prime location in Yasmine, this is the 23rd time we have travelled to Tunisia and apart from the excellent weather it is the people and there culture that makes us return ..
