My review will read very similar to Katie's. I was away with my husband and 3 teenagers (aged 13-18) from 16/07/14 -23/07/14. I booked the holiday with a little trepidation but decided to ignore the really bad reviews as I was booking a holiday in Tunisia and did not want to eat "British" food or converse freely in English. I... More

PLEASE IGNORE ALL THE NEGATIVE POSTS Myself, my boyfriend and my mum stayed at Shalimar from 5th-19th July and I have to say I loved every minute of it! I was weary with all of these bad reviews but I don't get what all the fuss was about! Yes the food can be a little repetitive as is the same... More

Came here for a week with my girlfriend and another couple, after about a 45 minute drive from the airport we were greeted at the main entrance on arrival with cold drinks which was nice. We turned up at the hotel just in time for dinner so we were told our cases would be taken to our rooms while we... More

I will admit that the arrival to the hotel wasn't too pleasant and we feared the worst, the roads need up keeping and the entrance was a little off-putting. After getting off the shuttle, the exterior of the hotel was a cover up and the interior was beautiful, it was spotless and grand. The staff helped us at the reception... More

When we arrived all looked good and the pool area was fantastic. You can't expect English customs in Tunisia but they certainly don't cater for a British clientele. The food was the worst selection we've ever had and we came home with dihorrea. God help you if you took young children as they would never eat. If you want a... More

Of course when you arrive after a long journey, you might think...hmmm not too sure about this place, and yes it is not what we expect of a 4 Star European or American grading! Bathrooms and elevators could do with some work.The 2nd elevator always took us to the 2nd floor instead of going down...did that spoil our holiday?? Far... More

So not many guests would turn up. Even I had to as had children who were involved with the mini disco every night at 8:30. The hotel needed some maintenance work to... More
