“Ok but not 5 star”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

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.

Room Tip: Don't choose 3020 unless you are completely deaf as near the animation stage and have got kids a...

After returning from a 10 night stay here, I can honestly say it was the best all inclusive holiday I've been on! From the beginning we were made to feel so welcome by all the staff at the hotel! At night time we were looked after by the best waiter; Fethi and in the day time and night time we were kept entertained by the amazing animation team especially DJ Marwen! Nothing was too much for any of the staff, even having our table decorated for our last night. I had such a good time on my holiday and I hope to return again soon to see everyone again and for more of their cocktails!

Wasnt sure if Tunisia was going to be a good choice of holiday but i was proved very wrong. The area is lovely and people very friendly (just the odd shop keeper who trys to be pushy but stand your ground!) The hotel was excellent,very clean and friendly,all staff were excellent especially the restaurant waiters. The animation team were brilliant all making us feel so welcome especially Dj Marwen who treated us like long lost friends. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to have a great holiday in Tunisia. Look out for DJ Marwen a real treasure.Bar staff were great too and pool boys.

Room Tip: Our room was overlooking the beach,great view and lovely sunrise. All rooms very spacious,only 4 flo...
