We travelled as a family of 2 adults and 2 children of 8 and 5. We could not fault this hotel and will happily return in the future. After a quick check in process we were taken to our room which was on the ground floor. This was large, peasant with 4 twin beds and patio doors which led onto a grassed area. Rooms are cleaned to a high standard with fresh towels and linen. The maids took pride in making various patterns with bed linen which our children loved.
Kids clubs were well run so a big thankyou to HANNAH BANANA AND MAGIC MARIE. The activities kept the kids occupied and gave them a break from the glorious sunshine which was in the 40's most days with not a cloud in the sky - PERFECT!!
Food - I read some reviews on here BEFORE travelling and must admit we were slightly worried, however we found the food to be varied and plentiful, there was always something to find of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The tables are beautifully presented and sometimes you will find petals on your table which is lovely. We had a couple of different waiters and must mention SAIED who was lovely and would always bring drinks to our table. A couple of dinars each day goes a long way and they really appreciate this.
Animation - Really lovely guys who work hard every day to make your holiday memorable. Daytime there is darts, bowls, aqua aerobics, dancing, archery, volley ball - all done enthusiastically. Kids loved mini disco each night and then there is a show which is ok - not great but after a few beers you had to laugh!!!!!
Beach lovely clear blue water and white sand - we were not hounded by sellers as some reviews say and found no thankyou was enough.
Outside the hotel is a bit dissapointing, it looks quite rough. There are some shops and supermarkets selling the usual stuff. We went to Port el Kantaoui on the noddy train which was really pretty and worth a visit - nice harbour with shops etc.
Pool was great clean, safe and kids bit sectioned off which was good. Pool restaurant good for lunchtime - had to wait a while for drinks at busy times and i think they need a bigger bar area with more room for more staff at this particular bar/restaurant as only 1 person serving just not enough.
In summary - a really enjoyable holiday, we met some amazing families which made our holiday even more special, the Scottish family from Stirling who drank too much vodka ha ha- thank you for the antibiotics for Ben - thankfully not needed!!!! the Biggs family, the Sayle family, the Hassett family and Ciccicio family and more!
Great holiday and we really didnt want to come home- ignore the negative reviews as this was a good, clean all rounder - not luxurious but if if you want luxury and a la carte then book 5* not 3*!!!!!!!!!
