There are negatives and also positives for this hotel!
Quite 70s in style could do with an upgrade, room has an old boxed tv with wires hanging out of the back!!! Two single beds pushed together, air conditioning had to be reset everyday due to fault on patio door, there was a hole in net curtain and our show leaked at the handle as well as the head, you will also pay extra for the safe and extra 10 dinar for each beach towel which can be changed after 3.30 each day!!! and not before!!!! The hotel staff were mostly very helpful and friendly, our room was cleaned and our bedding changed daily as was our towels. The beds were very comfortable too! but the room was pretty small and so was the balcony only room for a very small table and two chairs, the view was appauling and backed onto the back of another hotel and there was a sort of dirt track too!! Certainly no sun where we were situated either. The lift had 3 floors but it was quite confusing as we expected the rooms to co ordinate with the room numbers but if you were on level three your room number would be 400 +. There is a private beach which is about a 15 minute walk, but this isn't very well maintained or particularly clean and if you do sit on it you will be hassled by people selling their wares or un-insured trips. A market comes into the hotel on a monday but theyre quite pushy too and sometimes youre better off going to the set price shops as i found shoes cheaper there! They also sell a lot of fake bags/watches so called designer!!! not!!! There are a couple of shops in the reception area, we found them both excellent and very helpful. One chap sells sweets/medication etc he was very helpful and fair priced too! The other two shops are gifts/jewellery/clothes etc, I bought a beautiful sterling sliver bracelet from him, it was very different too! We went out for a walk and i found it quite upsetting as we saw horse/carriages beckoning for trade but the poor horses were very boney and unkempt, not nice! It also smelt of sewerage from the drains again not nice. We went on a bus which was quite cheap to the old part of Hammermet and to the Medina, where we found it exhausting due to the fact people wouldnt just let you look at the goods for sale they hassled you so we had a walk round and got straight back on the bus back to the hotel. The spa at the hotel was good, the hamman, massages, facials and body wraps were excellent and reasonably priced, however do ensure you get it written down what you've paid for as we didn't get what we expected on the first day so went back on the 2nd day earlier to have the additional missed treatments as they sell packages. I must say the food was plentiful and there was quite a selection of things to eat from piella to kebabs, pancakes in the afternoon and the ice cream is very good! i didn't find the soups to be that great! Our waiters were excellent and very accommodating and once they got to know you would save you a table and have your drinks etc ready for you, they would also have a joke or two! The childrens club did however seem very good from what I saw of it! The weather was excellent and the pool was ok my husband swims quite a bit and he was happy with the pool. If you want sun loungers, you have to get up early otherwise you will end up at the beach or on a stacking plastic chair for the day! Its quite breezy there so i tied a bag round the back of the lounger to ensure people knew it was taken when we went in for breakfast/lunch etc, I am glad we only booked a week there and it wasn't our main holiday as i would have been totally disappointed to be frank! I wouldn't recommend it to any of my friends/family/colleagues as I didn't consider it to be 4 star as quoted the travel company! So all in all clean/friendly helpful staff/good spa/pool ~ but downside dated, beach not great, hassle from sellers outside of hotel and drainage issues outside of hotel ~ we were also warned not to swim in the sea as effluent is pumped directly into the sea so was told by a local that it could be dangerous!!! If you just want a week in the sun and something cheap and youre not looking for anything luxurious then you might like it here as everyones opinion and expectations is different but if youre expecting luxury this wont be the holiday for you!!!
not sure if there were any???
