'we recently returned from a week at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of it.
We booked with Thomson Holidays and from the start everything was well organised. The flights were a great time and even better left on time. Djerba airport was easy to get through, with a warm welcome from the Thomson staff on arrival. We were in our hotel within an hour of arriving which must be a first. Check-in was quick and easy as we had out registration forms included in our Welcome pack from Thomson.
The rooms were great. This hotel has only just re-opened after what must have been an expensive refurbishment. We had a lovely view over the pool to the sea.
Restaurants were very good, with a good selection of food. The speciality restaurants also offered a good choice with the Asian being my favourite.
The main pool is huge and if I had had enough energy I might have tried to swim right accross it but I think it would have taken me a week! Lots of sunbeds, the hotel was not full, suffering a bit from the media hype of Tunisia not being safe, but I have to say that we never encountered any problems and the place is heaven.
The beach is good, although a little rocky when you get in the sea, a pair of sea shoes is advisable. Evening entertainment was ok, and tried to cater for all the nationalities. Our rep in the hotel was Nicky, she was fantastic and couldn't do another to make sure that our holiday was perfect. We even ventured out for a few trips, if you get the chance the 2 day trip to the Sahara was well worth the money, and something we won't forget. Also Flamingo island is worth a visit.
Overall I would find it hard to fault this hotel. I suppose if I had nothing better to do on holiday I could find a few things which were not perfect, but then I would have just been wasting my holiday time!
