We stayed at this hotel in early June last year and loved it so much we came back again this year (first time we have ever gone back for a second visit!!) and we wasn't disappointed!!! Firstly a massive mention to Bora such a people person made everybody join in with activities, he made my 5 year old daughters holiday, from the first meeting when we arrived he remembered her name and spoke to her at every opportunity, even joining us for his evening meal some evenings!! Kids club is fab my daughter always spoke of Bex the TRex, Silly Sarah and Nik Nak!!
Our room was great, lovely cleaner (didn't catch her name), food was nice, staff all helpful some of them remembering us from last year which was nice. Would 100% recommend this hotel.

We arrived at 2 am and we're greeted by Bora Bora who the kids loved. The hotel room was facing the front of the hotel on the bottom level but was very clean and spacious. The pools were all nice and clean but we preferred the kids one as we had a 4 year old and 11 year old. The location of the hotel wasn't great as there was nothing outside the hotel but could go to places by taxi. My daughter went to the kids club for the first time ever and she loved it. The staff were great. There was no entertainment suitable for my 11 year old at night he became bored but luckily had a football he could play with. A lot of other peoples older children were also fed up as nothing for them to do. The childrens entertainment was ok but could be improved i feel they are trying to hard and should just stick with the old style mini disco and party dancing games. The Thomson team did a broadway show which was great but the rest of the week was entertainment brought in by the hotel staff some of which was ok but not great. We did leave a few times. We got bitten a lot by Mosquitos which has never happened to us previously in other countries. I felt the reps were nice and friendly but they tended to stick with the families they were friendly with from London and Liverpool. Same on trips the reps sat with these particular families and their kids. I felt there was more of a fuss made of these children. The pool staff and life guards were amazing and the guy who sells the water sports was such a nice guy. We went on the zoo trip and the pirate boat trip which were disasters as were both overbooked and rushed.. There was also nothing about pirates on the pirate boat. I felt Ali baba was very rude to us as we had booked our trips with Thomson he was shouting at us by the pool and became aggressive until my partner told I'm to leave. The man who works in the spa was a very kind man. The maid service could have been better the rooms were not cleaned to the standard we have had previously had in other hotels, on 3 occasions we had no towels and I had to run to reception to get some. Some staff are very friendly and would go out there way to help but some can be grump. I would not go back to Tunisia as I would prefer somewhere with more to do outside and for older kids.

Just got back home on Friday 4th, have never returned to the same place twice but would defiantly go back there! Excellent staff, food and plenty of entertainment for the children and adults LOVED It! bora bora made our holiday always full of energy, wouldn't have been the same without him, Kate and Sophie we will all miss them too much was so sad to leave. Our room was perfect and the resort was perfect, you could relax if you wanted or get involved with the more energetic things on offer, Zumba, water aerobics and ample water sports where on offer at a more than reasonable price. Food was always available. The beach was amazing and this is the first holiday I didn't have to go lay out towels to ensure we had a sunbed as there was always plenty free. Hamdi on the beach bar that served the hotdogs and toasted sandwiches was always happy and playful with the kids. We went with Ali baba for the excursions and we enjoyed the quads and pirate boat but would recommend the the camel trip as you can go on camels and horses on the beach. Our maid Najet was so lovely and made us feel special by putting flowers, chocolates and candles in our room ever other day. From when you walk in to when you leave you are made to feel like a VIP! Would recommend this resort for family's and couples. Can't understand anybody that didn't enjoy this holiday! Miss you all including all the families we met- hope to see you all next year!

Room Tip: Defiantly ask for a ground floor room, you have the option of a swim up pool also which we didn'...

Myself and my 8 year old son had a great time here got back 29 june 2014. Thompson reps are great and very good with kids, the hotel is spotless and our maid was brilliant, the cleaners are always working, the food was great although if you don't like spicy food it's mostly pizza and chips, The only warning i would say is watch out for The Ali Baba tours this man has nothing to do with Thomson's He is very good at taking your money but then cancelled the trip and didn't want to give a refund. so be warned but apart from him everyone was really nice and the hotel staff are really helpful to i would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We were on the top floor, the room was good but very warm and the air con is very noisy,

Our first visit to Tunisia, week started off great, my two granddaughters aged 12 and 18 months got ill but we carried on regardless, will start off with the very best about the holiday, Bora Bora fantastic people skills, excellent communication skills, really made a point of getting to know people and his memory for people's names incredible, he has the knack of getting people involved in things I only wish I had got involved earlier because every thing I got involved with he made it great fun, and when we were awaiting our shuttle he came over to us shook all our hands and really made us feel special.
Also the young lady in the crèche Katy was fantastic with my little granddaughter, we spent most of our time around the quiet pool the two guys on there were fantastic at making sure we did not have to wait for drinks very friendly and customer focused. For the kids abbi dabbi doo was fantastic with the kids, never had a problem with the foot other than meals being repeated every few days and the last day had a bad stomach upset to come home with, the only other thing we could not get used to the air conditioning the first couple of nights I awoke feeling like I had a bad throat infection really bad coughing left it switched off at nights and woke up feeling great, oh and must not forget the cleaning lady honest very friendly and when my young granddaughter was sick she was straight in and changed the bedding very lovely lady. Also the guys on the beach were great when I did my first parachute flight I am not a great lover of heights but they got me laughing and joking I really wanted to try this and glad I did every thing about it was excellent take off, the view from up there was excellent and the landing excellent the whole team of guys excellent full marks to them. All in all a very good holiday.
