Reminiscent of the great Roman baths of antiquity. Cheerful and friendly service. Wide range of food for all tastes, from at least 5 different styles of restaurant. Excellent internet. Indoor and outdoor pools. On the beach. Prices of most things are reasonable. Beware - don't drink champagne by the glass. A small flute of (moderate) french Champagne will set you... More

This was my third stay at this property. It is by far the best place to stay when in Tunis even though a 20 minute drive from the airport. A palatial 3 story structure with an outstanding pool area and great outdoor space where relaxing under the swaying palm trees. A private path leads you directly onto the endless Gammarth... More

This is a hotel I often stay at when visiting Tunisia and not staying with family. The location is great being close to La Marsa/Carthage/Tunis etc and if you're willing to drive/book transport you can visit Nabuel/Tazarka and other towns along the coast. The staff are polite and always willing to help. The rooms are clean and cool with facilities.... More

Overall the treatments were average. However, I was shocked that the hammam was in fact for both men and women and that they permitted men to enter while women were completely naked and having mud treatments. Also, the massages were just light oil rubbing exercises. We did not stay at the hotel, so I cannot comment on the rooms. The... More

An excellent hotel that has obviously learned from other countries how to treat guests, from the initial reception giving cold towels and a welcome drink to first class service from all its staff All the restaurants served excellent food from the breakfast though lunch to dinner Fully recommended for both tourists and business visits

Excellent hotel by all means. Rooms are spacious and clean. Housekeeping service is excellent. Food is also very good (although the choice is somehow limited). Internet is very fast. Definitely to be recommended
