We had a brilliant time we were a family made up of 2 60+ one 37 and 2 children each of us enjoyed the holiday the hotel is clean and friendly. The rooms we had adjoining ones which was useful to help out with the children I personally found the beds too hard but easily solved by folding the duvet in half and putting it under the sheet Air con was ok they were cleaned everyday. All the public areas were spotless pool loos cleaned constantly as is the pool areas all the rules attaining to this hotel don't seem to work like no shorts in the dining room at night loads were wearing them no saving sun beds until 7am people were out at 5.45 if you leave it until 7 they are nearly all gone no food on plates around the pool loads were doing it to name but a few. The food is as I expected but there was plenty of choice and always well presented it says on signs there is a barbecue but there isn't the beach bar you have to pay for the beach was well kept cleaned every morning lots of activities for adults on the beach Archery,boules and the are water sports further along at a cost didn't seem very expensive parasending, banana boat etc. The Animation Team work really hard to entertain you the shows are good pool activities are fun too aqua aerobics, water polo and water volley ball and other games too. The children seemed to enjoy the kids club although don't expect it to be secure the children come and go as they please ours were old enough to do that but younger children whose parents went for a walk took the time to go to the beach got a shock when the found there child on stage and staff announcing a lost child when they thought they were being cared for.there is no signing in or out system which I think is needed. Overall I would certainly stay here again it was friendly and 99% of the staff were friendly and helpful always willing to find you a table bring you drinks etc . The weather in August is in the 40's but it's lovely to cool down in the pool. The only thing is an 1.40 to 2 hour transfer but knowing this resort and hotel I wouldn't let it put you off. The resort itself is worth a look we went on Esmarellda a small train that takes you around Mahdia going to a bazaar towards the end of the journey worth the money we also visited El Jem a colosseum just like the one in Rome but with your able to walk around more of it if your into History you will love it you also go to a museum that also an old Roman house. I would recommend this hotel and resort it's for all age groups
