“Enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Our week stay was very nice, consistent hot weather and lovely sandy beach. The hotel is a 4 star but that relates to a 3 star in Europe. All inclusive so the buffets are as expected but the animation team are great fun, especially Arbi who best us at cards nearly every night!!!!!

This is the 2nd time we have visited this hotel, we loved it yet again, the animation team made this holiday, arbi, Kiko, bobo, speedy, salas and the rest of the team. They work so hard! The staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful, we will definitely return very soon!!!!

I came back from a 2 week Holiday in Tunisia on 15th August 2015. it was amazing and i completely shocked about how good it was there. The animation team were quality and worked very hard. Biggie, Kiko, Nastaya, Tania, Bobo were the best. They made sure they knew all the guests names and welcomed them whenever they saw them. We did a couple of nights out at the local club metalica where Kiko sorted out VIP area for all the people who wanted to go and made sure we were all ok. They made sure that we were looked after and made the night enjoyable. The entertainment in the evenings was not the best but the animation team always gave it 100% whenever they were required to do so. The food in the restaurants were pretty standard but what you would expect from a All Inclusive hotel. The only couple of negatives were the bars and lack of bar staff. There were many guests at the hotel in peak season but only ever one person serving per bar. They need to increase the amount of bars/ or at least increase the amount of staff working on them. Also they ran out of glasses/cups a lot. there is no valid reason for this and they should have a sufficient amount of glasses for the amount of guests they have at the hotel. The service in the restaurants were good as we tipped our waiter every day. I would definitely recommend Abou Sofiane to any families with teenage children or even young children. It was a great holiday and a slight increase in customer service would have made this holiday perfect. Another improvement would be about the Wi-Fi service, but if you get down to the port, buy a Tunisian Sim card for 10 dinar for 2gb of internet you don't have to worry about connecting to the Wi-Fi.

Just got back from our second trip here at this hotel,the worst thing to begin with is the other Brits! Why o why do we pile our plates of food so high? Then waste most of it, there were people who were rude, and smuggled food out, but the staff remained so professional through out, now the good stuff, the staff were really good nothing was too much nor too big a problem, the hotel was .clean, and tidy, and yes the rooms were lacking but you only sleep in them. The pool lads worked tirelessly to help and deserve a pat on the back, animation team were really good, all in all a great time, will go back again

Landed back today after a week in this hotel. 100% improvement on the dire place we stayed in Turkey last year.
Staff friendly and helful most always smiled. The animation team were good with kids. Food was very enjoyable and a good selection. The beach is a two minute walk from the hotel. Goods are cheap but they try it on so you have to barter :)

Just had a week at this hotel and I will be honest as I write the review. Got there about 10.45 am and thought nice place. Well it is nice clean and plenty of food, and drink. If you like to stroll and see what the area is like then don't bother if you want to be hassled and I mean hassled.they try and get money out of you any way they can and wont stop until they get some...
Back to the hotel.the staff there expect tips and wont stop until they are given something no matter what..
Becareful of the of the porters and the life gaurds pprts will hassle you to get your baggage and life gaurds hassle you if you ask for sun loungers they put them out and expect something every day... just be aware of tunisia its not a good place
Thats my opinion. ...dont go to medhina they will rob you blind dont go in side shops saying they government buildings there lying..
Camel riding be careful they rip you off and there miss treated camels are in a poor state and horses are poor state to...please be careful if you visit out of the hotel grounds....

I've been to Tunisia several times before and think this is my least favourite hotel. Previously stayed in the sister hotel the Riviera and that is much nicer ! When staying at the Riviera the Abou Sofiane was closed for refurb but I'm not sure where was refurbed. The rooms and corridors need updating. The bathroom definately needs updating. The shower curtain I think had a hole in cos the floor was constantly drenched . Only one small lift in the hotel and the walk to our room everyday seemed to take forever . The rooms were kept cleaned by the hard working cleaners .
The food although it was nice was very repetitive . We got sick of the same food and the same smells made my stomach turn .
Although there were signs everywhere saying that you could not reserve sunbeds around the pool or on the beach people still did this. The hotel provided beach towels so people would reserve sunbeds with the hotels beach towels and then would not even use them as they didn't care about not getting the beach towels back. More needs to be done to stop this. We hardly ever got a sunbed in the pool or beach.
The entertainment not great, didn't seem like there was any structure. We went to a grease night and walked out as no grease music was played instead the entertainers dances to loud rap music .
