A few days ago we returned from a fabulous week at The Orangers. We travelled as a couple, this hotel really does cater for everybody as there was a nice mix of younger couples, older couples and families. After reading some great reviews we were really excited to see if it lived up, and it did not disappoint. We arrived early morning and were greeted with an orange juice and our bags took to our room. The room was pretty standard, we paid extra for a sea view room, although it was a bit on the small side, the view was well worth it, got a good sleep each night as the rooms have air conditioning and black out curtains.
Food and drink - wow what a selection. There was something different every night for dinner, there is always food available 24 hours and we especially loved the pool snacks including paninis and hot doughnuts. Tried the Tunisian A La Carte once, but we definitely preferred the dinner buffet! Drinks were nice, i had cocktails every night. There is also someone squeezing oranges into a jug at breakfast which was to die for, only thing i would say is that it would have been devine if the oranges were refrigerated!
Activities wise we were never bored, the animation team really work hard to make sure everyone has fun, we did archery, water polo, water gym and went horse riding 3 times! The equestrian centre is a 2 minute walk away, which was the highlight for me. Went beach riding and also in the school, and had a little canter. Horses are great but the guy who worked there was a bit creepy, and snappy! which put me off, otherwise I would have done it every day!
We loved the evening entertainment, you have just got to enjoy it for what it is. A different show every night with some amazing dancing! Especially loved getting involved with the club dance every night!! The only downside is that is finishes at 10.30pm, there is a disco but the speakers were that bad in there that we couldn't stay in it! There is next to nothing outside the hotel, we went out into Hammamet once and regretted it. Just to a couple of empty bars and getting pestered on the street, didn't feel safe outside the hotel.
Did a day trip through TC to the animal park and on a pirate ship - would definitely recommend! Held a baby lion cub at the zoo and the pirate ship was loads of fun.
The absolute best thing about this hotel is, as everyone says - the staff. They make this place what it is. Make sure you have a few coins for tips because they thoroughly deserve it. They all work massively long shifts and will do whatever it takes to make sure you are happy and comfortable. They bring you drinks all day long in the heat. Special shout out the Monshi the pool attendant, he is the nicest guy! Always brought you a mattress for sunbed in the morning. The animation team are also brilliant, they make time for each and every guest.
We completely enjoyed this holiday and so glad we picked this hotel and we are already planning our next visit later this year!!
