“A very ordinary experience.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2010

Ordinary - but off-season so basically neglected - might come to life in summer. Some friendly staff - breakfast of bolied eggs, bread and jam - no tea - or tea-making facilities...not even a microwave oven in sight!! - only cater to coffee drinkers. Rooms very basic BUT has internet access so if you carry a laptop - the best feature of the place. Nice walk to town from here and the beaches were deserted which was nice for us - biggest criticism - the rubbish and litter that surrounds the walkway and beach areas of an otherwise pretty place.
Over-priced for off-season. Cramped - uncomfortable bed - but clean and good hot water supply.
Would recommend for business travellers (internet access) - can get good food in town - some entertainment - quiet. Ours was a leisure/business trip so it suited us - not the place for a family vacation but could be different in summer, especially if they do some clean-up of the gardens/pool and general surrounds etc.
The overall purpose was a visit to Bizerte - which we fell in love with - and will return...but will seek alternative accommodation.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2009

This is the Bizerte resort hotel that is nearest to the Kasbar and old port, possibly the only one that is within walking distance.

It's quiet location with parking makes it a good choice for a base for a couple of days touring, but the resort facilities are tired and the beach out the back was overrun with feral dogs.

I took the (very cheap) half board option, the service was a bit lacking and the food poor, though for the price I didn't really expect it to be great.

The biggest problem was that I was woken up at 7:10 by someone delivering my breakfast to the room. I don't know if this was a mistake or the normal procedure but it was far too early and it also means that there was no choice for breakfast which is normal in Tunisian resort hotels.
