Rooms were filthy, food was terrible... The only one thing that was nice was a hotel beach. However, 2 discos around playing herdcore techno all the time ruined everything...Avoid this hotel like hell!!!

Unbelievably bad hotel, not for British holidaymakers whatsoever. I can only echo other people's negative recent comments and don't want to repeat, but myself and my friend have just wasted alot of money and a week of our lives staying in what can only be described as a 'hell hole'. Rude, abrupt staff just made it even worse, together with... More

Icecream was something like frozen water, disgusting. Waiters rude and ignorant, seemed to be waiting for tips only. Had to buy food outside, thank god there was a... More

Hotel staff blow hot and cold from attentive to out right rude, we where fully inclusive but you had to go a long way to get a full half pint of beer as sometimes it was half foam. You have to queue outside at a small hatch to get your inclusive drinks whilst a very big inside air-con bar was... More

This was our fourth stay in Tunisia, our third in the Hammamet area, so we had a pretty good idea of what to expect. We stayed at the El Bousten from 29th July to 5th August, the same time as recent reviewers. It was a last minute booking and seemed to offer everything that we were looking for, all inclusive,...

Honestly, I knew that I wasn't paying a lot of money; I knew what I was paying for; I'm not a picky person; I'm used to staying at hostels... but THIS was even below my lowest expectations!!! Starting with hotel staff.. Every attempt to draw their attention to you fails. They just keep talking to each other. You are lucky... More
