I stayed at the Vinci a few years ago and didn't like it and returned only on the reccomendation of my fiancee for four days from 31.05.12 to 04.06.12. HB. First impressions was that the hotel had improved. There were 3 very efficient and professional women on reception who were very helpful. The room was nice, large and clean but I think it was too early in the season for them to switch the a/c on so it just acted as a weak fan. The big letdown was the food in restaurant. It advertises as 06.30 to 10.00 for breakfast and 18.30 to 21.00 for evening meal.
If you went to breakfast after 07.30 there was no cheese or sausage pieces left. No eggs were provided and you were left with a choice of rice, tomatoes or some cabbage to go with your tea or coffee and juice.
In the evening the same thing occurred. The food ran out after 19.30 and when staff were asked if there was any more we were told it has all gone.
Even when I went in at 19.00 I found that all the Bric had gone (which they now fill with potatoe as egg is too expensive) the choice of food was, Cous cous, mashed potatoe, pasta in a tomatoe sauce, burger pieces (small slices), boiled carrots, fish pie (with a hint of fish flavour), and some other vegetables floating in a red sauce. The russians who were the main group staying there had a wonderful time piling up all the plates, not eating anything, leaving it all on the table before they pushed their way into the queue to do the same again with another plate. Even they didn't like the food. There were a couple of other UK people in the hotel and between us we have stayed at numerous hotels in sousse, kantaoui, tunis, etc and the food and lack of food including food choice was the worst ever in our opinion. For two of the days we ate out as there was nothing left for breakfast or dinner and on the other two days I managed a limited evening meal and a piece of bread and sliced processed meat for breakfast, whilst my partner went to a cafe down the road. There was not a great number of people in the hotel so have no idea how they will cope when it gets busier. They had a function for a party of overnight guests on the saturday and there was a buffet of fruit juice and UK type sandwiches on a large pletter with sliced processed meat etc at midday when they left. At the evening meal the leftovers was placed in the restaurant for the guests to consume and they had the bread crusts from the half eaten sandwiches with slivers of meat and cheese sticking out with the bite marks, liberally strewn accoss the meat. It was disgusting. Obviously won't be going back
