“Just back from the most fantastic holiday.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

This hotel is beautifully set in lovely well-managed gardens; smooth wide paths make it easy to get around. You need to be able to use some stairs to access pools and the main building. The staff work tirelessly to keep everywhere clean and attractive. Rooms and public areas have lots of marble, polished wood, gorgeous ceilings and light fittings. Loads of places to sit and chat, read, or watch the world go by with a drink or a snack, inside or out, in sunshine or shade, lots of choice, including under lemon and orange trees. The loos are lovely; lots of loo roll and soap, constantly checked and cleaned. The room was beautiful and spotless with a very large comfy bed, refreshed every day by lovely staff. We had a hair dryer and a fridge and a new kettle. When we had a problem with our balcony door and they sent someone straight out to fix it.

Private safety deposit boxes are hired by the week they are very inexpensive and quite secure, in a little room by reception and operated by 2 keys one of which you keep on you, Security at the hotel is superb.

The staff who were all wonderful, so friendly and welcoming, all went that extra mile, they made our holiday perfect: A big thank you the animation team, restaurant staff, the waiters, kitchen staff, bar staff, reception, room staff, cleaners, gardeners, repair and maintenance staff, porters, stable team, pool man, pool café chef and pastry chef (who deserves a medal for perfect pastry!),

Tunisia is a male dominated culture but is very respectful of women, yes they look and they compliment but its generally very charming and a little quaint. I like the door being held, my chair being pulled out for me and an arm offered to take me in to dinner. Staff were always on the look out for anyone who need any help with anything.

Cats – the hotel grounds are a home for a number of very friendly feral cats. They do not force themselves on the unwilling, but if you can’t stand to be around cats, go somewhere else. The cats themselves are clean and very friendly and very good with children. they will always welcome that little bit you couldn’t finish or those treats your cat at home turns her nose up at. Some will happily spend an evening on your lap and tomorrow someone else’s. They appreciate a bit more food after a hard off-season when few people have eat outside.

People – a really good mix all ages, British and Irish, Germans, French and Tunisians. Couples, small single sex groups, families, grandparents with grandchildren. Always someone to have a chat with if you with but the constant change in guests means you don’t get stuck with people. Most staff have very good English, German and French but are quite happy to help you with your language skills, we even leaned a little Arabic.

We spent very little money, about £80 on tips between us during the week.. It is a normal and expected part of the culture – very little to us makes a big difference to their standard of living and is really appreciated. I would liked to have found a ways of leaving money for the staff beind the scenes, such as maintenance, grounds men, laundry staff and kitchen staff to show I valued their efforts, any ideas how to do this Les Orangers? It cost us £16 per person for a trip on the Pirate ship, which was awesome – booked it through the animation team. There was a meal and pop and transport included and it lasted about 3 hours – but the best thing again was the staff, Four young men dressed as pirates and party hosts had everyone on board young and old up and dancing, they had a display up it the rigging, an incredible fakir show on the deck, massive audience participation, photos opportunities and professional photos offered for sale, both with pirates and with a falcon perched on your arm. Horse riding for 2 hours was £24 per person and included all your gear. I have not ridden a horse since I was 11 and being short and fat, mounting without a step ladder was an experience that involved a group of strong fit young men, a ride along the beach and around the training ground with basic tuition was great. Remember to pack socks and take an apple from breakfast for your horse.

Pools – One small shallow one for children. Two proper sized, deep pools . One outside, one inside heated in the off-season. Just like a big glorious warm bath, an area at the end is fastened off for children only down side are steps to climb up to it. Water quality in all three very good and tested regularly. Fish pedi spa – lovely – so relaxing and soft smooth holiday feet. Complimentary massage very good but busy, book early, both male and female masseurs available. Good firm massage, found it a little short at approx 15 mins and would have welcomed relaxation time rather than deep massage straight to get up and go. Do use the Moorish café while you wait, very pretty try the Turkish coffee and the mint tea. Gym looked very nice – but never found the time with so much to do. The pools are looked after by an attended who maintains availability of bed by giving out sunlounger mats where and when required and removing them when not required. Don’t reserve its just not necessary and it greedy, his system and works.

Food available 24 hours a day in some part of the hotel, all of it good and freshly cooked in hygienic surrounds, with loads of choice. Personal high points omelettes and pancakes cooked to order. The really fresh eggs. Try the huge fried donut shaped things they taste like Yorkshire Pudding. Lots of crème caramel and vanilla slice type things, incredible ice creams and sorbets. Wonderful salads. Was surprised to see so much pork. Lots of mainstays but don’t be afraid to try things, discovered quail, roast tongue, quince jam, unsweetened rice pudding and custard for breakfast. Cucumber juice. The best freshly squeezed orange juice ever

Everything you could wish for and more. Local wines are lovely. Local beer is a European lager type – good for hot weather. Cockails – they don’t work to a particular menu so tell them what you like and they will comeback with something lovely. One of the rally good things about the county being mainly dry is the choice of non alcoholic drinks. Fantistic virgin cocktails, a huge array of juices. Cola is available but why bother. Do try the hot chocolate, very good on its own or with the brandy.


Suggestions for hotel. Put water in the fridges for new arrivals, either replenish when tea coffee is replenished or have a note on the fridge to tell people to pick up from bar/restaurant as required. A little box on reception with a picture of a cat and a red crescent to raise funds for spaying and neutering. A few more little shallow ramps

Room Tip: We were in number 8, in the middle this made getting around the site easier

Well we arrived 09/03/14 to a lovely welcome by the weather (thunder lightening and very heavy rain) the poor guys who do the portage were wrapped in black bin liners to take all the luggage to everyone's rooms while we were given a lovely cold fresh orange juice and a chocolate.

Whilst we were filling in the registration form a wrist strap was placed on our wrist and once the rain had eased off we went down to our room (ground floor facing the beach and beach restaurant) our room had been decorated with flowers and swans made from the pool towels a lovely surprise and a big thank you to Mr and Mrs Walid.

Once we had unpacked we went to the beach restaurant and discovered a lovely array of food awaiting us every thing looked lovely a lot of choice from buffet meals, salad, soup, chicken, fish, beef, coated veg, rice and potatoes. Then you have the choice of a pasta dish cooked fresh or meat/fish cooked on the open grill. Outside you still have the pizza/noodle bar all cooked to order and if you still have room there are the cakes/ice cream and fresh fruit.. Well done to Hatem and the team you excelled again.

Now even though we had rain for about 5 days the animation team were there to keep you occupied whether it was darts, French bowles, archery, water/land gymnastics and line dancing. They did it all and for those that just wanted to read the book library was well laid out into languages so really easy to find something to read. There is also games, table tennis and tennis rackets/footballs etc for a small deposit. Again well done to all of you guys Fradj, Samir, Mido, Nero, Arwa (kids club) Dina and the rest we had a good laugh at your comedy shows you all work such long hours (9.30 - 12.00 12.00 - 1400 when you do rehearsals for shows and then back out to do games at 14.30 - 17.00 when you go home only to come back at 20.00 to start the evening shift until the disco closes) such long hours so thank you again for all your time and efforts to entertain us all.

Main restaurant offers breakfast and evening meals.
Breakfast again has a lovely choice of food from cereals, continental, cooked eggs to order, omlettes, cooked breakfast, pancakes and waffles all cooked fresh in front of you fresh salad and cold meats/cheeses, fresh fruit and sqeezed juice orange, carrot, celeric and what ever they have at the time. I define anyone not to happy with what's on offer.
Evening meals are again buffet style from stews, cooked meats, fish, veg, chips, potatoes, rice, pasta, couscous, salads and you also have a roasted meat carvey, grilled meat/fish and a Chinese style noodle cooked to order and you have either cheese crapes and flat bread cooked fresh alternate nights. (Thanks for my flat breads lovely and you know who you are).
The waiters are all just as friendly and so nice to see you all again (marood, bassam, radii and Walid for all that you did in looking out for us both and all the kisses). So a big thank you to Marouen, Hatem and all the chefs from the prep team up you all excelled yourselves again and look forward to our next visit with family and friends. There is also a Ala carte menu which is booked down at the beach reception, choice is from Italian, Asian and Tunisian at no extra cost as it is All inclusive.

All the bar areas were as usual, a good choice of drinks, cocktails along with the great guys that work so hard making sure that our glasses are never empty. Monty, Mores, Kismee, Tehran, Lofty, Anis and Ben (and everyone else not mentioned) you all do a brilliant job.

Reception was again excellent 24hr service money change all enquiries for local area and taxis (Sonya, Khaoula, Mouhamed, Mohammed and the other 2 guys and night receptionist).

And last but not least a big thank you to Sami and Mohammed in reservations.

Also thank you to all the maids, Gardner's, pool attendants, masseurs and maintenance guys for keeping everything looking nice and clean and in working order even us.

Beach is still lovely and clean, there is camel/horse riding and with the summer coming there will be there usual jet skiing and parachute rides. Its well worth going to the Thomas Cook welcome meeting Mahir was so funny and informative its the best one we've been to in the 17 years I've been going to Tunisia. And look out for the baby storks as you travel from the airport they are in the nests along the roadside on what we would call telegraph poles on special metal platforms.

Cannot wait to see you all again in December its going to be a long summer waiting.

I hope that if you are planning on visiting The Orangers beach and bungalows complex that you all have as much fun and a great experience as we do.

Just returned from a wonderful stay at The Orangers, you could not fault the hospitality of all the staff, yes it is all-inclusive and you would expect that but they just go that extra mile, nothing is too much trouble. The weather was very mixed but the days when the sun came out the beach area was brilliant. We went swimming every morning before breakfast with our lovely bath robes on that they provide, which is ideal saving you from getting dried, changed etc at the pool, you can just return back to your room. We played tennis, read books and generally relaxed and oh yeah had plenty to eat and drink. Entertainment in the evening was good fun and the disco was good to dance a few pounds off. Finally, I would recommend The Orangers and will return.

We have just returned from a family holiday (2nd April).
Good points first. Rooms are clean but basic.Food nice and fresh.Most of the staff are really nice and friendly.Beach has plenty of sunbeds as had the pool.Childrens play area although small was well looked after.
Bad points.Outdoor pool freezing.Should really be heated at this time of year.I would expect this of a four star hotel.Indoor pool was warm but had no shallow end which was no use for us.Also looked very shabby .Beach was great but there were used cigarettes everywhere.Not pleasant for our children.we could clearly hear what was said in the room next store.not ideal.
We stayed in room 128. The lady who cleaned the room was lovely.sorry didn't catch her name.
We did have a nice week away but will not be returning as not suitable for our small children.4yrs and 2yrs and star rating not quote what I was expecting.
I as did many other people we spoke to do not think this is a four star hotel.
I feel a bit mean saying so but having stayed in many 4star/5star hotels I just don't feel the orangers matches up.
Great for a cheap Week away as a couple but perhaps not with chilrdren.

Room Tip: Other people upgrade to a bungalow which they said were really nice.we couldnt because of having chi...

Just returned from Tunisia have to say we could have had better weather, but at this time of year you have to expect it . The hotel was lovely, food very good, animation team very friendly and produced excellent shows. The waiters around pool, reception and beach were truly brilliant their hospitality was the best I have ever experienced, nothing was to much trouble would like to especially thank Baltu Dhaken and Gassmi Bacheddine (sorry if I have spelt that wrong) what wonderful kind gentlemen, well done. Would recommend this hotel to anyone the only negative thing I have to say is there were a lot of Germans guests who at times were alittle rude.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view would have been better but were unavailable as all had been booked
