“amazing times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I went for a week to Tunisia with my parents and sister and it was a week we will never forget. Everybody was so nice and everything was perfectly arranged.
The animation team was great. 3 young boys full of life and always with a smile. They had volleybal, waterpolo, aerobics, table tennis and lots more.
Even when we were playing cards, Coco of the entertainment team joined us and played along. We danced and laughed en they made our holiday one we will never forget.
I will definetly come back just to see all of them again.

Please read this fully to gain a great understanding of this hotel, the service & area. To start off, this is an all inclusive hotel, if you are one of these brits that moans if a foreign hotel doesn't offer nuggets, fishfingers and chips every day, then please go to search & type in "Benidorm" or "Butlins"

~ The Hotel

Most of these type of all inc. hotels are fairly samey, large buildings, big square buildings and rooms. This is what attracted us to the Vincci lella baya, and it didnt dissapoint. The whole place has lots of character & the way it has been designed is superb, see my photos for a better idea. When we pulled up on our transfer everyone else on the bus was saying "wowww"

~ The Staff

You arrive at reception, there are many nationalities at this hotel & all the staff speak minimum basic level of all of them which I find brilliant. Reception are always polite & helpful. In the restaurant the waiters are great, we often used the same small waiter that covered one corner of the restaurant, he was always helpful & attentive & for that reason we often left small tips. Not one member of staff EVER gestured or looked like they were asking for a tip which I found good too. The chefs were great too, I often went to the grill & the young lad there once saw me walk up see there was none cooked so I left and sat down. 5 minutes later he came over with a player of grilled chicken & chorizo for me. Again, little attentive things like this leave a great taste in your mouth (No pun intended)

The BEST are the 3 animators, Coco, Carlos and Pawlo. These three young guys work tirelessly throughout the day and night to keep everyone happy and entertained. If you dont want them to bother you they just let you relax, otherwise they get games like table tennis, volleyball, water polo, anything, we even had a game of Uno with them! Theyre very competitive and often wind each other up during team games which is so funny! But they are always up in the morning, they talk many languages and make everyone feel welcome. They also provide the entertainment at night which can be great, often very funny also. Theyre great with young ones too with a kiddies disco before the main entertainment every night. one friday we wanted to go to nebeul market, it was Coco's day off. So he offered to take us, it was superb, he was like a private guide! He showed us how Tunisians get around which was interesting too. He even bought us gifts to remember the holiday by which was a lovely touch. So we bought him one in return. Again things like this make the whole holiday a great memory. we will definitely be visiting these 3 guys again soon!

~ The Food.
The food was always a good variety and always had some authentic tunisian food on offer. I enjoyed trying all sorts, and I enjoy meat, to which there was always plenty available. Always veg, potato, bread, fresh salad, soup...LOTS of different fruit and deserts. If you cannot find anything to fill you up then you have issues!

~The Room
Our room was nice and spacious, decent bed, great view of the sea and ALWAYS kept clean.

~Facilities. Free WIFI which most hotels dont offer, Also Safety boxes were only 3 dinar a day or something, so for a week it would cost you about £10. So much cheaper than in greece and spain where it can often be 30-40Euro.

A special note also to the photographer Tatyano. He is a very nice person and friendly, we played Uno with him too! We had private photos done on the beach and he was BRILLIANT. He even did edited some for us, and we were over the moon, superb quality and great value.

The pool area was always clean, never saw anything bad in the pool. Private beach was nice with bar too.

Over all, I would visit again and again. we would often walk along yasmine looking at other hotels thinking "thank god were at this one" Another great touch was a by a gentleman called hedi (I think) I started chatting to him after he changed some money for me. In the end he asked my room number and when we got upstair that evening he had left a HUGE bowl of fresh fruit. Again, personal touches like this really make you feel welcome.

bad Points (Trivial)
~ The only real sour taste was the barman at pool bar. he was SO slow. he would often be wiping something, and just casually carry on as lots of people waited. He just didnt care and rarely smiled. he also accused me of getting all inclusive drinks for non all inclusive guest to which angered me and left me feeling uncomfortable around him for the days afterwards.
~ Tennis - they have tennis courts, the first day we went to play we were given rackets and balls free. The next day we were told it cost 7.5Dinar. Now I wouldnt mind, but the rackets had no grips and the balls hardly bounced. If you are going to charge then the equipment should be adequate in my opinion. Now many wont mind, but I was looking forward to playing as I play back in England so it was a shame.

All in all, unless you are paying lots of money for a top of the range 5 star hotel, you wont find better than this. The value for money is the best, great staff, great service, great hotel. A holiday we will always remember

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are the best!

We booked this hotel for 1 week in Sept 2013, and we had a great stay. The staff was very friendly and always tried to have a conversation with you. Also the animation team was organising nice activieties such as volleyball and football on the beach, waterpolo, aerobics, pingpong, etc.
The hotel is definitely the most beautiful one in the area. The hotel is clean and the rooms are very spacious.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding ceremony there on their private beach, as the hotel offers a very nice package for this. We had 33 guests all staying in this hotel, and all we were satisfied.
The only thing that could improve a bit is the food. It was certainly okay, but not much more than that. There was variety and there were days that I liked almost everything, and days that I didn't like it much, but it was not something bothering me a lot.
Overall, I really recommend this hotel!

Have been staying at this Hotel, several times a year for the last 3 years but never written a review!

The rooms are comfortable and the service at the hotel is impeccable and it feels like coming home staying here.

The pool area is one of the nicest.
