We have just returned from a week at the Bellevue Park and overall I would recommend it.
The Airport - 1 passport person for a full plane.....It was a very bad experience and frustrating for us all.
We arrived at the hotel about 9pm and we were taken straight to dinner.
We were then shown to our room which was NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED. We paid extra for a pool and sea view room with adjacent rooms but were allocated 2 rooms along the corridor from each other facing a building site. We had emails prior to our arrival promising us adjacent pool and sea view rooms.
When I complained it appeared that their was a list if people with the same complaints and were told they would move us in the morning........BE WARNED as this seems to be common practice for late arrival guests.
Our new rooms were great but we shouldn't have had to complain in the first place.
Rooms - The rooms were big and airy and we were happy with our room. The wiring in the rooms aren't great and the air con varies from room to room. Ask for a second card so you can cool the room when you are out at the pool/beach.
Sunbeds - We went down every morning at 7.30am and we secured a pool side bed every morning. We tipped the pool man 10 dinars at the start of the holiday which helped.
Bar Service - Great bar service and the bar staff were so friendly even though they spent the whole holiday speaking in a cocky accent but it was entertaining and harmless....
Food - I have been to many all inclusive hotels in my time and it was above average. You could book early or late dinner sittings at the start of your holiday which secured you the same table for the whole holiday. The food was pretty good to cater for the masses but it's typical all inclusive food. You get what you pay for.
Animation Team - The team are probably the hardest working team I have seem. The work from 10am - 11pm and are always smiling and making everyone welcome without being pushy. I can only take my hat off to them as they were FANTASTIC.
Entertainment - The entertainment was pretty dire to be honest. It's mainly the animation team who do not lack effort but it's not great. I can't fault a team who give 110% but they need to bring in good entertainment. We watched a strong man who lay on a bed of nails etc and it was like watching a bad episode of Britain's Got Talent.
Communal Toilets - The toilets were gross.......wee everywhere and poo stains etc. Both the mens and woman's toilets were the same seemingly. SORT IT OUT GUYS......
Beach - The sand was great but the sea wasn't great, full of seaweed and litter etc. I had read the previous reviews but I thought they may be exaggerating but sadly not.
The Port - Go to the Port as it's great......The people are NOT as pushy as Turkey and they are nice. Tunisia is a poor country but I've experienced far worse. It's 5 dinars to the Port and 7 Dinars back after 9pm.
Trips - We booked the Catamaran trip for 2 hours which cost 120 dinars for 3 adults and 1 child and it was just PERFECT. We booked from the guy at the pool.
OVERALL - A very enjoyable holiday which was cheap and cheerful. The staff work sooooooo hard and are so friendly (with or without tips). The only real downsides were the allocation of rooms especially when you pay extra and the poor communal toilets which need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
Bring in better entertainment and allow the animation to do what they do best during the day and mingling at night.
