We went for a late break in November and were unlucky with the weather. That can be forgiven with the quality of the rooms and the amazing view of the sea! The bed was huge and pretty comfy. Food was above average for Tunisia. Most staff that we encountered were lovely, but of course they are going to be when they are expecting tips. You don't give tips and you get basic service. I don't have a problem with tipping, but they way they swarmed around you on your last day just for the tip was uncomfortable. Our waiter was Heshmi, and he was lovely! Never let our glass get empty, remembered what we drank etc. HOWEVER!!! The animation team!!!!! They weren't Thomas Cook, they worked for the hotel. One in particular war called Cada??? I think? Downright rude at times, wanted to make everything about sex!! We all walked out of the bar at one point it was so bad. If I had the chance to return, I would not, and it would be a lot to do with this!! Also, the pestering that you get on the streets from people claiming to be your waiter from your hotel, and getting angry when you didn't go with them. It was frightening, and if Tunisia wants to increase tourism, they need to clamp down on these people. Would not go to Tunisia again.
