This was a good lastminute deal - packed our bags and went the next day. First time in Tunisia so didnt know what to expect. Upon arrival in the airport, there were men waiting to take our cases for money, and women outside the toilet wanting money for you to use toilet roll! Thought nothing of it and was looking forward to getting to the hotel as we were a bit tired after a night of travelling. Hotel was nicely presented and we were relieved to see it after some of the others we went past on transfer! Two large pool areas, in-hotel shops and restaurants. We were half board so if you like eggs thats the main part of breakfast, and chocolate pancakes! other than that it was the same all week.. and be aware of the Germans as they are everywhere and so snotty. Tea time was similar - you knew every day what there would be as it was basically the same food. Exchange of money in the hotel - if you dont ask for a reciept they short change you every time so make sure you ask for one. Same in the bar the waiters would pocket the money and type you in as all inclusive! The men in Tunisia are disgusting and will shout anything at women so be aware and taxis will offer ridiculous prices so make sure you barter with everything you want. As for the maids - they walk in and out of your room whenever they want made sure our cases were always locked, free air conditioning which was good.. only thing to be aware of is the on-site nightclub and other facing the hotel they are hardcore and very very noisy right through the night, and punters on the street offering you drugs by the minutes! Make sure to go to Sousse there are plenty of shops there too.. Had enough after a few days but it was a nice break after all..
