Arrived for 1 week on the 27th of May and the welcoming cup of mint tea as we checked in was an unexpected pleasure. Even though we arrived at about mid-day, we were shown to our rooms and given access to the facilities straight away.
I noticed we had not packed a travel plug but the small shop in the hotel got one for us within a couple of hours, great service.
The hotel is in extensive grounds and was a safe tranquil haven from the somewhat exciting delights of Sousse. Tip a little and often and you will get great service. Don't tip and you will still get good service but without the extras. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help.
The food was the only slight disappointment, it was varied and plentiful but maybe too adventurous for me (but that's a personal thing). There might have been more staples, it was not until the last day that the beach bar restaurant opened with a more suitable choice. Likewise the all-inclusive drinks were OK, but limited.
The clientèle was mostly German, Russian, Ukrainian and Polish with few British but it made for an interesting karaoke night!
Our room (facing north) overlooked a beach disco on the final night, I'm not sure if that only opened on that night or was only on Saturday nights but it was very noisy until midnight. Get a room facing south and the Pool and you should be OK.
All in all a very relaxing and pampered holiday and would definitely return.
