This hotel offers 'soft' all inclusive, which means that alcohol is not served after 11pm. That was fine for me as I'm not a big drinker. The staff are very polite and helpful and the guys in bar always knew what we wanted before we ordered. The animation team are fun and they took us out in the evenings to... More

There are a lot of unfair reviews below. A lot of people with unrealistic expectations when they're paying minimal amounts for what they get! If you want pizza and chips and are completely uncultured, stay at home and go to Dominos. What you have to remember is that Tunisa is a developing country, and the majority of your home comforts...

The rooms are massive and there is plenty of space. We went as two adults and two children age 7 and 13. The pool is gorgeous as you can see from photos, animation staff are funny, friendly and great with the children (although am aware they change almost every year) They have daytime activities for children, although it is usual...

Reading some of the reviews here, a think a lot of people expect a lot for very little money. We paid a grand total of about £900 for two people including flights, a weeks accommodation, all inclusive meals and drinks, transfers and a check in bag each. That's a weeks holiday for £450 each all in! That's not bad going.... More

After booking hurriedly and then reading reviews, we were expecting the worst with the Shalimar. It wasn't the best but it didn't affect our holiday. The hotel and complex could be very nice with a little TLC. A lovely spacious building with a grand lobby and a superb pools, both indoor and out. Large bedrooms. The staff were pleasant &... More

Our stay at this hotel came about because our travel company changed hotels on us a week before we were due to depart, that is another story. We didn't arrive until 2am and the place was in darkness. There was 1 lad on reception who said Mr and Mrs ....... and gave us a key with directions to our room.... More

Other than the awful stay and initial stomach bug, it may be a coincidence but my partner has come back and is in hospital with meningitis can I ask if any other September visitors has experienced any illness? However other than that the hotel was poor anyway, pool was nice but it ends there. Most meals awful, entertainment irritating, some... More
