Went with a friend for a relaxing break during Jan/Feb 2013, it was extremely relaxing.
******This is a hotel based in Tunisia so try the local food.*******
There was a fantastic range of food for everyone, from salads, fresh bread, different meat dishes, potatoes cooked in different ways (if you wants chips with everything then go where it caters for chips with all) freshly made pizza's, pasta, rice, cous cous, fruit, deserts etc the list is endless one of the best hotels for food I have experienced in Tunisia & I have been to a few.
My only gripe was I went half board not all inclusive so I had to pay for my drink with dinner - bottle of water 3 dinar, wine 5 dinar a glass, so yes could be expensive but that was my own problem.
Rooms: Very clean, tip the cleaners they work hard, clean towels every day, every room has a balcony, mine had a table, 3 chairs & a clothes airer, TV in the room & it had a variety of channels including films, a fridge at a deposit, dressing table, ample wardrobe, air conditioner/heating gets cold on an evening in winter months.
Sunbeds free...however if you want a mattress it 2 dinar per day
Towels for pool can be rented at a refundable deposit of 10 dinar, these are changed every 2 days.
Beach access from the hotel, very clean although I only went there once.
2 outdoor pools, 1 indoor pool with a jacuzzi, massage, hair dressers, henna tattoo's, american pool table, air hockey & table tennis (small fee)
Animation team: Great hard working, various things throughout the day such as archery, evening entertainment some nights (don't forget I went out of season)
Entertainment: lounge is non smoking, but there is a smoking lounge & a chicha room.
Reception area: very nice, it has door men 24/7, a bank to change money (rates the same everywhere) safety deposit boxes, cash machine.
There was ample other seating areas throughout the hotel, 2 hotels on site over priced but that's the same everywhere.
Tunisian's love British guests & most can speak English!
Security manned the gates 24/07, as well as security walking around the site so secure. It is about 5 minutes walk from main entrance of hotel to security gates.
For those who like to leave the hotel, turn left & keep walking on the left hand side until you come to a roundabout with golf clubs on it (10 mins) then left at this roundabout a further 10 mins will take you into the marina of 'Port El Kantaoui' worth a visit as so pretty - take my advice here please drink in cafe's around the marina as there is a fountain square nearby & their drinks are a total rip off so your warned!!! :-)
Just before you get to the marina on the right hand side, there is an Irish Bar - yes owned by an Irish guy - good night out for the young at heart.
If you go out for a walk on the right hand side of the hotel there are several places to go into for a coffee as well as several shopping centres - my personal favourite was Sunflower - very clean toilets.
Taxi to Sousse is 10 dinar pay no more, this has ample shops, coffee shops & of course a medina, best coffee shop The Marrekkesh very clean toilets that are locked to keep them clean.
Hergla is worth a visit but you will not spend a full day there.
Local small taxi bus in yellow or white with a blue stripe down the side go everywhere for 1 to 2 dinar, worth a go.
Bus a little more difficult I could not work out where the bus stops were on the left hand side, one opposite hotel gates heading towards Hergla.
