Stayed at this hotel about 3 weeks ago. I upgraded to stay in a garden room and was shown a room that faced a side road and another hotels garden. This is after it took us 3 attempts to get into the room. Reception did change our room straight away. Would have been good to be shown to the correct one in the first place. Although under this was under the animation stage so noisy!!
Changed some money at reception but found they had short changed us by 20 dinar. This is after receptionist had counted it out twice. So count your money before you leave in front of them
Head chef lovely and plenty of food and the tunisian briks were fun to make with the chef.
Alcohol on the all inclusive -beer gassy, cocktails very sweet and not great. Rose wine ok, spirits not fantastic. You can get normal brands but at prices more expensive than the uk.
Pool nice and on 2 levels. Waiter and life guards fantastic. Small tip appreciated. the waiter who was there 3 weeks ago worked really hard and came round every half an hour and remember our order.;
Waiters were lovely and went to outside restaurant for lunch thanks to the two Abdul's, [cheeky Abdul with the nice smile] and baby chefs [Marwan]. Waiter in the main restaurant Ahmed Matrlouthi was very attentive.
Hotel decoration could do with upgrading in places and some dodgy wiring!!!! which we reported and was fixed Air conditioner was rubbish despite reporting. Piano bar empty and they don't seem to be making the most of this.
Beach was disappointing as lots of seaweed. Less seaweed when I walked further down the beach. Public beach broken glass and rubbish ++++ and a giant mound of seaweed. Lots of horse and carriages. Horses looked emaciated and no water available. Also had the horse equivalent to a horse nappy to collect the urine and faeces and it stank to high heaven. Some hassle from shop owners and again we were over charged so get a receipt. One flower seller was really rude to my husband.
Overall holiday ok . Would suite family with teenagers or out going people. Animation Team The Lord of the dance was so funny!!!!. As well as international Karoke this was horrendous- well the singing was so take ear plugs Nice to get some sun. Have been to other places that have been better value for money.
