Just spent 13th March to 27th March 2013 at this superb hotel. A wonderful change from the usual concrete and glass monstrosities. Although undergoing much renovation the ongoing work wasn't a problem. The dining room provided a choice of food for most visitors although this did tend to err towards the French and Italians, being in the majority.
Perhaps the main downsides being poor evening entertainment and little English TV.
I wasn't impressed by the indoor swimming pool but I guess this is on the "to do" list. The larger one opened later in the week as Easter was arriving.The grounds are really nice with plenty of gardeners working away. Access to the lovely beach again, superb.Overall very clean and tidy.
It is a fair walk to the main road if you want to travel around. A taxi is favourite. Approx 6 Dinars into Sousse. A return trip to Monastir a mere 2 Dinars return by train from Sousse Station.
It can be a little daunting being pestered by traders in North African towns but just be polite and say no thanks. Trips can be arranged by agents who do wander around the site but I think I should err on the cautious side as there are further charges once you arrive at your destination.
My wife and I travel extensively and we were both very pleased with the overall experience at the hotel and it was incredible value for money as we went "all inclusive"
Give it a go. Its a lot better value in Tunisia compared to the Euro Zones.
