Big thankyou to the hotel for our bouquet of flowers and our decorative room on our 1st year anniversary . Not planned just mentioned it and they said no problem we will do something for you so thankyou again .
Just returned from the soviva 19th July to 3rd august .
1st time to Tunisia but was wary as heard bad reports and reviews of this place and Tunisia as a whole. .... RIGHT..
We stayed room 1019 and it was at the back of the hotel so not much view . Palm tree and wall .
Very quiet but very dated at the same time, face lift needed .
Spacious and clean everyday
Lack of plug sockets so take extension leads !
Pool is spacious and cleaned everyday . Great pool side boys . Who tidy up beds and clean the pool and general watch the pool .
Great main slide but one slide wasn't working as was not attempted to be fixed in this time
Pool bar is a complete joke . 1 tender and cues for ages .
Not enough staff to accommodate the hotel for this .
Easy 5 to 10 min wait for a drinkable drink .
Coke is flat. Beer is warm to cold and spirts are not something you can get drunk on.
Evening bar is worse longer wait and same drinks .
Very Very Very bad point. You must be up for 5am yes 5am to get towels on your beds otherwise come after 8am your struggling !
Breakfast lunch and tea and snacks . It's eatable simple as that . Nice salads .turkey beef and chicken is mostly in everything .
Put half stone on in 2 weeks and I eat well in that time so I personally can't complain of the food a range of something for everyone !!
Sam the ice cream boy is very nice and a thanks to him.
Waiters can be a bit rushed of there feet and not always pleasant so to serve a cattle market at these times can be stressful but see the head waiter walking around he generally sorts you out quicker .
Tip waiters normally speeds things up 10 dina is a lot to these guys
Before I say this what a great bunch of lads the animation team are . Specially Mohammed Ali and mosquit who everyday came and spoke to us and had a laugh together
Now the evening entertainment is pathetic and a joke !!! Bored every night as it was more for kids and dancing constantly . No shows was worth watching and it was comedy sketches/ dance shows which are part of the kids dance and little games etc . No one from the outside came in to entertain so don't waste your time thinking it might get better thru out the Hol as it DONT ! .
Go to the marina where there are nicer restaurants and bars
Wifi is poor too . Need to stand at reception counter to get good service and even that is slow ,
Russian are there and they think they own the hotel rude arrogant and could do with a slap as they cue jump and pinch your beds.
Spa is ok had 2 massages whilst there
Steam room could do with a clean as mold was everywhere
look I could go on, these are little points
but it's a 3*** average hotel average food average everything and it's cheap to go but it has blue skies and 40 degree heat , I had a nice time apart from the night time so I would not return on the basis of I go some where new every year . But thankyou for your stay I would not recommend .
Hope things change as it would be a nice hotel
