We have stayed at The Residence Mauritius on a number of occasions and it is, in my opinion, one of the great hotels of the world, so our expectations of one of its' "sister" hotels were high. We were not in anyway disappointed, from the moment we arrived in Tunis, to the moment we left, the quality of the offer and the personal service we received was impeccable. One of the things which takes us back to Mauritius, is the extremely high level of service which guests receive, and so it was delightful to receive this same high standard from Christophe and all of his staff in Tunis.
The hotel is I feel quite stunning, the architecture, layout and general ambience holds you there, so apart from one half day into Tunis itself, we were very content to simply spend time in and around the hotel itself. We love to walk, and there were miles of sandy beach on which to do this, if I have any negative comment to make, it would be regarding the litter on the beaches beyond that of the Residence, but I fully accept we went out of season and I understand the municipality does clean the beaches in July and August, and so this comment is absolutely no reflection on the Residence.
If Tunis has any advantage for us over Mauritius, it would be the fact that it is under three hours flying time from London(compared to 12 to Mauritius), and in that three hours you travel to a very different world and some rather good weather!!
We will without any doubt return to the Residence Tunis, and if M. Cretien, the manager in Mauritius is reading this, I would reassure you that we will also be returning to see you in the future!!
I would end by saying that the owners of the "Residence group" have a fantastic "product" and should be very proud of the service which their staff are giving.
