Just came back from vacation in the Caribbean World and we had a lovely time. The resort was beautiful, a happy place with many colours. There were four swimmingpools; a big swimmingpool with a bar in the water, an indoor swimmingpool, a relax swimmingpool and an aquapark with several slides. All very nice, with good supervision. The beach was only a 50 meter walk with a great sea. For a small price you could also do several watersports and for example fly with a parachute (I did it, and it's really recommendable!) . Of course there were people walking around the beach, trying to sell you stuff, but they weren't permitted to walk to the tourists. The hotel also provided security on the beach, and warned tourists for rip offs.
The food from the buffet was okay-ish. There was enough variety and a lot of choice, both healthy as fast food. There was a salad bar, a special Tunesian and Italian corner, a diet corner, BBQ, desserts and fruit and warm dishes (fries, rice, meat, vegetables, etc, etc). Also, there was a snackbar and a sandwich cafe (for lunch). There were many bars and you could get drinks everywhere, also take bottles of water "home". We only once ate in one of the four restaurants; you had to eat from a fixed menu and the food wasn't better than from the buffet. In my opinion, the buffet was better. If you do want to eat in one of the restaurants, be sure to make a reservation a few days ahead! Most of us did get sick though, possibly from the food or from the water. Fortunately, this was only during the first days (we stayed two weeks). Just be carefull with everything you drink/eat. It might have been just one dish that got us all sick!
The animation team was great, there were many activities for kids but also for adults. They offered a wide range of sports; yoga in the morning, aquarobics, volleyball, football, waterpolo, etc, etc. There were also tennis courses, but I didn't check them out. The shows at night were either hilarious or very poorly, but at least they tried. The nightclub was small and never very crowded, but looked good and had a decent DJ. The rooms were average, not very luxorious but okay. You got clean towels everyday (also for the swimmingpool!) and the cleaning wass good. The televisions offered channels in almost every language; a lot of German channels, BBC, a dutch channel, Russian (or something alike) channels and Arabic channels. The spa was great, unfortunately one of the staff members almost stole my golden bracelett during the massage. All other staff members were really nice. The prices were very reasonable in the spa. The hotel has Wi-Fi in the lobby, which worked fine when there weren't too many people. The hotel is situated in quit an empty area. There is one big shop, a bank and a restaurant nearby (10 minute walk). The nearest city is a ten minute drive with the taxi, but the city and its market wasn't really special. Overall, me and my family had a great time. I'm very pleased with the services at the hotel, and would certainly come back! One tip; give a generous tip to one of the waiters at the dinner buffet. You'll get the best tables and the drinks and so on will be served to you!
