The hotel has potential but is underutilized. Dirty tables, poor food, the canteen is always missing something. You have to wait for plates, cutlery, stand in line for drinks that are still served in plastic cups 😯😯😯 The water in the pool is dirty, the hotel has an unpleasant smell. Not enough tables outside. Internet very weak and only at the reception. The gym does not encourage you to use it. Nice view from the window. Great animators that I really miss. Always smiling and positive. You can see that the right people in the right place. And it is them I thank for this holiday ❤️ the heart grows when I look at you. I wish you guys all the best! Jo Jo Joanna 💪🧘 ♀️🤽💃

the hotel leaves much to be desired, but the attractions, service and animators do a great job. You can spend your free time at the hotel with nice animators. Aqua aerobics and evening dancing are a lot of fun.

I've stayed there in the beginning of May 2004 and was disappointed.
We were met by the scandal with guests who arrived earlier and who were not given the rooms with sea-view, as they've been promised in their ravel agency. Staff and Main manager were not courteous at all. I was in the same position and to avoid same scandal I paid extra for the sea-view. Room was OK but noisy while discotique (so called) working.
An few remarks about the hotel.
Furniture in the lobby and in the rooms is crummy and worn
Nobody speaks English, no-bo-dy
Beverages in the restaurant - overpriced
Menu of the lunch restaurant - very poor
Breakfast menu - also poor
The beach is very dirty, staff cannot take away tons of seaweeds
Btw in this season sea was too cold for swimming, and weather was very windy.
The Hotel does not serve fresh orange juise (!!) and arabian coffee (!!)
SPA center is average. Big troubles for those not speaking French

It is nothing of the kind of that Luxurious 5-Star Hotel I've been told it was.
But if one does not expect much, it might be OK. For the price of 3,5-4****

I recommend this hotel very much. This was my first trip to Djerba and I was a little scared for what to expect, but everything turn ot to be fine, even more. My favourite thing in this hotel was food and whole animation team. There was always something new for both. Every night there is mini disco for kid (which I liked even if I am 22 years old) and after that there is a party for us older, with great music and interesting choreography which we will remmember forever. There is just something magic there. People are just nice and if you let them they will be the best versions of themselves. You have pool animation from 10 to 18 and it is also great to do them every day. Balcony is fenomenal and you can drink your morning coffee with peace. I will be back here, nothing has to change.

worst hotel ever, impolite receptionist, no air conditioner, bad food, bad beach, bad room service. Never think to come again.

nejhorší hotel vůbec, nezdvořilý recepční, žádná klimatizace, špatné jídlo, špatná pláž, špatná pokojová služba. Nikdy nepřemýšlejte, že přijdete znovu.

I don’t know where to start. This was exactly what me and my friends needed this summer. We had like everything there, good services by every employee there. Animators are the best thing that this hotel have, they are so polite and cute and doing their best jobs to entertain every guest. Food was great, we loved going to restaurant. Drink is always available, alcohol or no. Coffee on the balcony is like the heaven. We wanted to be there forever, we haven’t needed anything outside the hotel. I really from the bottom of my heart recommend this hotel.

Hi!
First, i'm writing this review only because when i was looking for one on the net, i found only one here from a russian guy which was very negative - and this is not a bad hotel at all.
We spent 2 weeks here from 30.aug - 13.sept.
So..i agree that there are problems, but there are advantages as well.
It is not true that nobody speaks in english at this hotel. Hard to find, but i found 2 receptionists who spoke..a very helpful lady (sooner or later) understood what i wanted to ask (not just simple questions) and a (fatter) guy also could communicate with me.
As i realized english is a problem in the whole country; since ages this is the first place when i cannot use my english (and had to dig out my 'fortunately forgotten, non-existent' french).
The food is not so bad. if you don't like egg you would probably face to problems at breakfast, but still, there are some options. The dinner stands of ~10-12 different plates, so you can select. E.g. the soups are always the same two (1 vegetable and 1 fish-soup(fish soup was ridiculous with some tomato, as i'm hungarian- if you know what i mean:))).
The hotel, rooms are clean. the problem is not that, but the feeling that it's not 5-stars at all. some examples:
- the toilet is however clean, but at first smell, stinks. as i understood it is because the water itself is stinky..
- the curtain is also clean but torn a bit.
- the bathplug was missing
- minibar fridge cannot produce ice (i don't know, why)
- at the (very decent) bar, there's a candle on the table. the candle is in a broken keramic stuff. if you order sangria (try!!), they serve it in a broken jar
- lounge is nice, but furnitures are worn
They have internet offer, which was 'funny': one PC (p3/xxx HP box, would be nice, but..) with an 56k usb modem which connects to local isp with 14.4 bps!!!! i was suffering to just read my mails - and ofcourse forgot doing anything else.
The pool is huuuuge - we spent almost all time at there. Especially because the beach was under renovation during the whole vacation. this is a big black point to them. some newcomers did not check in and asked their organisers to have been replaced to somewhere else. we did not mind..
..because the hotel was very calm. i guess about 50 guests were there..which made this place IDEAL to take rest (and no other hungarian detected, ehehe:)).
Some hotels offer special local (in-da-house:)) programs with 'animators'. this is not my taste, so i appreciated, that here only 2 of such made some rare activities, like excercise in the water, valleyball etc. they did not disturb the others...
Conclusion: if you want to do nothing just rest under the sun and get sunburst, and dislike shouting guests (=idiots) chasing each other on the beach/at the pool, then this hotel is ideal for you.
