The first impression is that this is an old luxurious Hotel. It needs a renovation, basically some exterior painting and garden improvements. Rooms are OK, but not top luxury. It has a very good SPA and Hammam. Wonderfull indoor salted swimming pool, with eated water. I really enjoied it. The Asian restaurant is something to remember. Maybe the best Asian... More

Wonderful Hotel with its amazing architecture and excellent service....Very attentive, polite, smiling and helpful staff. I was there for a short business stay but enjoyed some leisure activities (appreciated the heated indoor pool with sea water and a relaxing massage in the wellness center). Very comfortable bed and pillows, the bathroom is very cozy with its red/black marble. Having the... More

Well-proportioned room in a lovely building. Bathroom has large walk-in closet and separate shower stall and tub. Limited outlets so updated needed there as it is difficult to charge multiple devices. Nice breakfast buffet and restaurants are very accommodating and do a good job. Hammam and indoor pool are wonderful. Best to have a car as location is a bit... More

Stayed at this hotel for Christmas and New Year with my husband and two small children. We couldn't have received a more friendlier welcome if we had asked. Despite being a hotel heavily frequented by the French (not surprisingly as Tunisia was part of their empire) all customer facing staff speak excellent English and most housekeeping and maintenance staff know...

We stayed here as a family for Christmas and New Year. Perhaps the stand out feature of this hotel for me was the service....nothing too much trouble, ever courteous and notably friendly. The food was excellent, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Perhaps a bit more variety would have been welcome at dinner but that is a minor reflection. The rooms were... More

Large sprawling complex with views of the sea. Interesting architecture and very welcoming. The only downside, a reflection of the country, is smoking policy. You can smoke almost anywhere you want which is annoying. That being said, even when establishments put up no smoking signs people either do not obey or sections are reserved for non-smokers without barriers as if... More
