Niggles first, hotel looks stunning from the outside but is tired and dated although don't let that put you off. They are working on it. Room was a great size and very clean with fresh towels and sheets every day. Majority of staff extremely friendly and helpful, reception were a bit rude on arrival and didn't really interact with customers during the stay so they could work on that. Hotel could be a jewel if they bring it up to scratch, grounds are beautifully kept though. Pool area is fine although only spent one day there. Food pretty good, meat lovely and tender, could do with a selection of fruit as this was disappointing, lovely crepes in the evening though.There is a man who try's to sell you trips and is a bit irritating -be firm and say NO heard bad reports about his trips, apart from him no hassle in hotel. You need to make your own entertainment as there's not much going on inside hotel, lots of places to go and should be buzzing once the season gets into full swing.Port is a bout 10 minute walk to the right as you leave, lovely area with all the usual tacky shops with one or two nice ones thrown in. Albatross catamaran worth doing, a bit cheaper if you book direct. Some lovely restaurants to the right. Taxis a nightmare, honking and tooting, you soon get the hang of it but we preferred to use the land train as it was more fun, 7 dinar return for two, just stick your hand out and they will pick you up, just make sure you get the same colour back. You need to engage with the locals, some are a pain but majority are well educated and friendly. Extremely cheap out there. Sousse beach is lovely, sun beds are about 5 dinar for two, they look after you well if you go to same place every day. Plenty of beach sellers and the food is amazing, lovely fresh fruit. Watersports same price wherever you go. All in all great holiday, would probably try different hotel next time but in fairness great value for money and would probably rate it a 3 star.
