I have been in the residence in July, the service is good and proactive, swimming pool is very nice, and the SPA is amazing. Negative note is the dinner ...always same dishes, and not properly prepared.

We have been going to this hotel since 2009 and sadly we have witnessed its steep decline over those years. The entire facility is deteriorating including all the rooms and public spaces. The breakfast which was a highlight is now poor with not such good quality. It once had several restaurants with great selection, now it has only the pool... More

During my stay, there were times that this hotel was everything that the reviews and the hotel's own website said it would be. The staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel elegant, with a lovely pool area, landscaped grounds and private section of beach. The rooms are large and the beds exceedingly comfortable.

From the moment you walk into this lovely hotel you feel well taken care of. The amazing smell of orange blossom and the sound of running water make you feel the luxury begin. The staff are all top notch. The breakfast is wonderful. The views from the balcony of the water facing room was lovely. A great trip to Tunisia!
