We stayed here after the Arab spring. There were lots of Libyan militants awaiting their treatment abroad staying here then, They were very friendly but thought we English could be bribed to gain them visas ! It led to lots of drinks being bought and cigarettes so wasn't all bad. Curry was available for breakfast strangely but I have to... More

Stayed here with my husband for 6 nights. We stayed here as we had business to attend to in Tunis and hotels there are generally quite expensive and this hotel is approx 20 minute taxi ride away and cheap. Arriving at the hotel we quickly realised that it is situated in the middle if nowhere with literally nothing around. The... More

Acqua Viva is a great hotel for those who are looking for clean lodging at a good price, and intend to spend their time outside of the hotel. I was there for 4 nights and was very happy with my booking. A clean room with air conditioning, a bathroom, and a small balcony (though the view is of a rundown... More

I have just returned from an excellent stay at Hotel Acqua Viva. The hotel staff were very helpful, chatty, and many were fluent in basic English which was useful (we spoke only limited French.) The room was basic, but adequate. The hotel facilities were good: an outdoor pool, water slide (unsure if operational), indoor pool, and bar/social room with pool... More

This hotel was very good value with friendly and helpful staff. The food in the restaurant was a good price and with enough variety to please me my wife and my 5 year old daughter. When we stayed there it was too cold to use the outdoor pool but there was an indoor pool and I enjoyed the treatment room.... More

Basically, I do not understood what this hotel can be used for. It is located in the middle of nowhere. To visit anything you need a taxi (easily found near the hotel for inflated price). We stayed in the hotel just 1 night before our flight back home. For this purpose the hotel is acceptable, otherwise I would not recommend... More

This is a simple, honest hotel: the food is varied and local.The service is average to good.Rooms are cleaned regularly. The pool is clean and ideal in the Summer months.The clean, breezy beach is easily accessible and worth a long stroll-one lovely French-style beach restaurant was worth the effort.The distance from the airport makes for an expensive taxi ride,but local...

Booked this hotel after reading the reviews and info on the hotel. Wish we had gone somewhere else. Even though the website states shops and restaraunts nearby theres nothing apart from 5 star hotels. The animation team is annoying and you have to listen to loud awful music all day and night, not the relaxing pool side I had imagined.... More
