Overall my partner and I happy stayed at the hotel in mid May 2014 (rain, windy and cool but it's nice enough). It's 3 stars and we paid just a bit over £300 each which we can see it almost twice the price now. We didn't have a sea-view room but the room was great as you would expect the hotel studio-room would be, large bathroom though.
You may need to bring the beach towel as the hotel charge 7 dinar to hire, I hope they will change this when the price are high for the packet. Pool side beds never enough and you would be few inches away from each other if you ever get one. The beach was good for us so no bother. Clean, white sandy beach and lovely swimming in the sea on good day. The hotel keep beach sellers out of the sunbeds area. Staffs will look after you when you have to deal with the outsider.
We don't tip until we see they give a little for what they do. We realised we were a big tipper at the end of the trip but we are happy anyway. £1/2.60 dinar - we've been giving 10 dinar for tip = the price for a taxi to Monastir included tip. The hotel is about 10 miles from Monastir, The Noddy train from the hotel cost £8/PP - if you like walking like us then it possible, we did it. Promise you will enjoy the view and you may not see others tourist but the Tunis tourist. Please bring a bottle of water with you. Later you will be able to find a small shop later, 6 dinar for a bag full of shopping = the price of a packet of crisp at the airport. Cheap and hope it stay cheap for years to come!
Beware of the Tunis who would greet you "I know you from the hotel"! I can't believe 14 years (my 1st trip) it still using this line to catch you. It didn't work on me before/now but surprisingly many British tourist got trapped on that. British politeness can get you around the carpet shop, perfume factory and so on!
Enjoy your holiday!
