“Excellent Value and great Animation Team!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my friend and our 2 kids. The children had a fab time and so did we and we have been back twice since our first stay in 2012.
This is a lively hotel in the summer season geared towards younger people and families and out of season a lot more laid back and more suited to older people or those seeking peace and quiet. Really no matter your age you will probably feel comfortable when you stay at Golf.
The animation team here are really great and work very hard putting on shows every night. The rooms are clean and food choice is good. Children are well looked after here and the pool is fab!
There is a club next door and the beach and marina are a 5 minute walk. Dont be too concerned by street sellers just ignore them if you dont want to buy anything.
Weather here is great in summer 30+ degrees but its still pretty warm in December too, you can still get a tan it was 23 degrees on Christmas Day and we went on a boat trip which was awesome!

Stayed December 2013, travelled with friends

Arrived on 31st of July after a swift check in at 11.30am our room was ready!
Traveling with hubby and 2 kids
A little worried about some of the reviews we had read but all seems ok
Lack of sun beds meant having to sit on grass,
We are half board so had lunch in the snack bar, was ok and reasonably priced.
Room very basic, 1 plug socket in bathroom, 1 broken one in bedroom and 1 other working socket, 1 fridge in wardrobe full of ice, and not the kind to put in your drinks so not much room for drinks.
We have 1 draw each for our clothes, and I pull out shelf, a little small for 4 people for 2 weeks, but room is clean.
Out the hotel and a 30 second walk is a well stocked ish supermarket.
Food good standard, plenty of salads, not typically English meals, which is fine for us but some people were complaining, they had spaghetti boll, chips, braised beef, pastas etc, salads, fruit a selection of the usual mini cakes and ice cream
Hotel could do with a lick of paint and a little tired and run down but most we have found in Tunisia can be like this, BUT here is my problem! When I booked I asked for a quiet room over looking the pool and I got room 159 overlooking a very busy street which looks fine in the day and an empty bar area, come 10pm we are sat on our balcony (no outside light so can't read at night) having a brew before we go to bed and the quiet bar turns into a full on open air discotheque, could not count the police with whistles in the street directing the traffic,oh and it's also opposite a funfair with music blaring, this is anything but quiet, no I am not one for complaining and I like to look for the positive but I've had no sleep last night as we were at the airport at 2am and it's now 2.15am the band have just finished playing and the back ground music is now booming! God only knows what time this will finish?
I went to reception at midnight and the receptionist acted like there had never been a problem and wasn't sure what I as on about! What disco? at 1 am we called the resort rep who said oh yes are you at the resort with the outside disco, we are always getting complaints! Ask to be moved first thing in the morning.
So what now? Food still being served this party ain't going to be finished anytime soon!
If you want a 2 week disco this room is for you! If you want sun and a chillax then it's not!
Sorry but I will be scoring this hotel very low because they should warn you about this noise, and they choose not to, there is no way other people are putting up with this, it's not like I booked 2'weeks in Ibiza.
Sorry but that's all I have in my less than 24 hours here.

Room Tip: Don't choose 159

We stayed in July 2014, I was accompanying and older couple with mobility problems, the rooms we were allocated were accessed by stairs. When we asked to be moved to a room without stairs the receptionist was very dismissive, fortunately when there was a change of personal the couple were moved to the fourth floor accessed by a lift. The real problem with the hotel was that it was very very noisy, it says situated on a quiet street, this street is far from quiet due to the water park opposite with loud music all day and during Ramadan till three in the morning. There is also a nightclub on the road which can be heard. I was in a room on the po0l side which was described as an upgrade, but this room was noisy all day due to the entrainment team doing their work. to be fair it did end by midnight but had been going from 10 am.
The hotel is well situated and staff very helpful, with notable exception of the receptionist, the food was okay, with plenty of it and a fair choice. I did enjoy my stay but would be wary of staying there again due to the noise.

Room Tip: All rooms very much the same, I was told that some rooms were quiet but no idea which ones, the room...

We have just returned from this hotel & had a great holiday . Yes it needs a little updating but the rooms are clean with fresh towels daily .We found all the staff to be friendly & helpful.Breakfast is a bit basic but evening meal always a great choice of food. A 2dinar tip to the waiter & he will keep a table for you . The animation team work very hard to keep you entertained with something for all ages.Pool area is very clean but could do with a few more sunbeds when we left at 5.am people were already putting towels out! There is a snack bat were you can get pizza. burg etc & the waiters will bring your drinks to you pool side .We found a cake shop out of the hotel turn right 5min walk . There is small supermarket to the left as well . The beach is a 5min walk away its small but they do watersports we paid 60 dinar (£20 ) for parasailing .We did venture down to the port one evening there is a good selection of shops selling lots of clothing/trainers . Its good to barter with them but we did see one shopkeeper starting to become agressive with a lad who didnt want to buy a watch . sometime NO just doesnt work . There is a horse & cart which will take you down to the beach & we did witness an accident between a car & cart ( personally i find it cruel as it was so hot ) There is wi-fi in the reception of the hotel but not in the rooms .also air -con ( great help ) We had a great holiday wheather was fantastic but not sure if we would return to Tunisia .

Room Tip: E.mail the hotel & ask for a room at the back with pool view .

My Husband and I had a lovely time in the Golf Residence Hotel the 1st week in July this year 2014. I found the Staff to be very friendly and helpful. My room was cleaned every day with fresh towels.
The choice of food for breakfast and evening meal was fantastic.
The pool was clean and for less then 50cent a day you could hire a matress for the sun bed.
This hotel is a good 3 star, could do with a bit of an uplift.
The location is great, quiet and 5mins walk from the Marina.
I stayed in room 1004 which is on the ground floor with a nice view of the pool. When we arrived at 3am due to the flight being delayed I found the Reception Staff to be helpful. The next morning when we went to Reception to request interconnecting rooms as per our booking request the man on Reception went to a lot of trouble and time to sort us out.

Room Tip: Rooms with pool view

We stayed for a week in July 2014 and had an amazing time. The hotel decor is dated but always clean, well kept and comfortable. We actually liked the room furniture! Food was always great with lots of choice and our waiter reserved us a table for the whole week and remembered our regular drinks orders and lunch orders, he was always friendly even whilst serving a very busy restaurant and working all day. Cleaning staff were always friendly and willing to help. Pool is clean and fun with a choice of activities, the staff work very hard. There was music playing from the water park most nights but with the balcony door closed we couldn't hear it, this never bothered us. The hotel's private beach is a 10 minute walk or you could use the free horse cart from the hotel, 2 dinars will pay for 2 sun beds for the whole day and the water is lovely. We went with Thomas Cook and our rep Ryan Maxwell was ace and sorted out our problems with our excursions and was always available and knowledgeable about the area. Overall a great holiday for the price we paid, it was so much better than our expectations after reading some bad reviews. This hotel probably isn't for everyone but if you want a fun, carefree, clean hotel in a good location with good staff this is probably the best you could get on this budget. We would definitely stay here again :) Also top place for drinks is just down the road called Golf Brau, cheap cocktails, cheerful staff and a great atmosphere! Remember tipping is a way of life in Tunisia, tip your staff and they will always look after you and will greatly appreciate it.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing away from the nightclub or water park for a quieter night
