After what happened in 2015 RIP to innocent victims. I was so looking forward to going back, and I must say I weren't disappointed at all. Stayed at this hotel with my husband yes areas of it are very dated and in need of alot of tlc. Our room yes was in need of repair and updating, door.leading to balcony needed repair but we were able to lock it bathroom very dated and grubby. House keeper lovely woman always clean towels skipped slightly on actual cleaning and in the whole of the week bedding only changed once, but given how many rooms they had to do we weren't that bothered as we prefer to make on beds anyway. Carpets throughout the hallways dirty and thread bear, there was an incident in a room a room couple if doors down from ours and the evidence of it was left out for visitors to see. Blood cover bedding not a pretty sight to see. Dirty plates in hallways broken glass on 1 corridor that had been there for at least 4days if our stay before been removed. Food horrendous personally I am a fussy water but my husband isn't and even he got fed up of it been the same. I lived on soup and bread roll for a while week,.would.of been nice if there had been chips but the only time you could get them was out by the pool and if you liked sharing them with the amount of flys i saw landing on them then fine but not for me. The man from the jewellery shop very annoying he literally hounded my husband the whole week we were there not very professional and to be honest unnerving especially when he even came yo me while I was sunbathing at the pool. Now the good The lady that made the doughnuts wow don't normally eat them but they were yummy. Always didn't matter what part of the day it was managed to get a bed by the pool yes there were towels on most of them but managed to get 1and plenty of space to put it. Reception staff and bank clerk all extremely friendly. Bar staff all apart from mr grumpy were extremely polite and friendly and to be honest half way through the week even Mr grumpy started to come round, soufaine what I can i say about this young man he is 1 in a million always had a smile on his face when he saw us such a nice genuine person such a pleasure to meet. Most people say to.get the best service from people is to tip them and they will run round after you this is aload of rubbish. We didn't tip until the end of our holiday and we always got 100%service from all the bar staff. Personally I think if you treat them with respect and not that they are to be there at your becon call you get on much better. The guy that comes round selling excursions top guy spent most of our money with him but omg the quads etc absolutely fantastic husband loved them so much we even went private. All in all absolutely fantastic holiday would I go back to this hotel yes just to see some of the staff again. Would I stay there again probably if I new that the while of the hotel had been updated and not just parts of it.

This hotel was booked for us by my parents as a present. We stayed 3 nights 3rd November-6th November. The only good things i can say is its clean, reception staff, bar staff and restaurant staff all friendly and welcoming. FOOD IS DISCUSTING- the food from lunch is warmed up for the evening. The only selection you get is fish or Turkey, no chips, pizza anything for children so my daughter didn't eat for 2 night and we didn't eat lunch there for 2 days. ANIMATION- what animation, none of them spoke to the guests, not once did they even come over and say hello to our children, they all just stood on there phones texting. As for the animation manager he wasn't much better and never spoke to any guests when walking past. No animation activity during the day, didn't see any animation in the day time. We came as we were going to book for the summer with my parents but we would never step foot in that hotel ever again. We have stayed in better 3 star hotels in sousse then here and its supposed to be 4 star. A big thank you to Malek on reception who helped us with a lovely room and listened to my complaint.

My hubby & I were a little apprehensive about visiting Tunisia but from the minute we arrived in Abou Sofiane, we were treated like royalty. Most of the staff had very limited English but it was never a problem. The staff were polite, friendly, helpful & would do absolutely anything to make you happy. We stayed in the refurbished end of the hotel, our room was very spacious with a massive comfy bed & a balcony, the air con was decent & the walk in shower was a good size with great water pressure. The maids cleaned our room every day & left fresh towels & bottled water. The bar & reception area was very large with comfy seating & a chilled out atmosphere. The bar staff were very attentive but the drinks are all local so don’t expect UK brands (it is a Muslim country after all). The gardens & outside seating area were beautiful. The large pool, snack bar & private beach were clean with plenty of sun beds & parasols. The nighttime entertainment consisted of a half hour dedicated to the kids & then either karaoke or a DJ ( remember we visited at the end of season) & the nightclub had different things going on every night ( can’t comment as I didn’t go) The ‘animation team’ were a lively bunch of youngsters, always trying to involve everyone in the goings on - just not my bag when I’m on holiday but I enjoy watching everyone else. The restaurant was large, clean & had plenty of choice, a huge selection of salads, meat, pasta, couscous, local dishes & the most attentive staff I’ve ever had in a hotel. The majority of guests in the Sofiane are Russian & French so the language barrier prevented us from having any proper chats with others but they were all polite, respectful & well behaved- no ‘lager louts’ here! It was bliss! Lastly I would like to commend the hotels management & staff for treating us so well during our stay & we can’t wait to come back!

Stayed here for a week. I think the main thing that let this hotel down for me was the dining area. Breakfast was good but often there was no cups, glasses for juice, the table cloths weren't changed, just turned over. Quite often had to look for cutlery. You had to work your timings out as it was really busy until about 9am. Lunch was always busy as was the evening meal. Hard to find a table. The food at these times wasnt that good. Very repetitive. Food didn't look that fresh either. And the puddings were the same every evening. Apart from that I couldn't fault the staff. They were fantastic. The room was cleaned daily. The pool area was clean. Didn't have a problem getting a sunbed although I did get up early. I dont think I would return unless they sort the dining area out.

Bottom line, an okay hotel with a few nice positives but some big negatives. We were all-inclusive. Positives: -- Room was nice...new furniture, freshly painted, big enough, quiet, decent balcony. A new bottle of water was provided daily. Housecleaning was good. -- Hotel had chairs/mattresses and umbrellas (a bit crammed together) directly on a fine-sand beach. You will need to "reserve" chairs by 08:30 or you won't find any free ones until the early afternoon when some people depart. -- Pool, although a bit small, was clean and nice for swimming. -- Hotel has nice gardens and walkways, tended on a daily basis. -- You could exchange currency at the hotel reception (0800-1500) at fair rates. Negatives: -- The entire dining experience was negative...biggest problem is the cleanliness, or lack thereof. Plates are not washed well, with dried food remnants frequently on them. Tablecloths are clean only for whoever sits at the table at opening time, everyone afterwards gets the same dirty tablecloth with stains and crumbs. At most the dining staff will wipe off the cloth using their hands. Coffee cups were a joke...every single day, especially at breakfast, they would run out of clean cups. People would wait around by the coffee machine, and a worker would eventually show up with five or six clean cups. I ended up using soup bowls (when I could find them) most of the time. -- About 66% of the hotel guests are Russians. Many will pile up food on multiple plates, put them on their table to make it look like they are so special, and then eat 1/4 or less of the food and leave the rest to be thrown into the garbage. Disgraceful. Also, never, ever, expect a smile or simple greeting from these people as you pass them in the hotel hallways or lobby. -- Drinks. Both the lobby bar and dining room drink station would have one single worker pouring the drinks. The lobby bar guy would basically ignore you for a while, and then give a head motion for you to order. Unfriendly. The dining room drink station was a joke in inefficiency. Would be 10x faster for the staff to pour wine into a bunch of glasses all at once and then hand them out as needed. But instead they would only take each order, look for the bottle of wine, pour a glass or two of wine, and then put the bottle away. And then the glass would usually be only half-full...if you then asked for a full-glass they would usually (not always) fill it up a bit. Always a line of 10 or so people waiting while their food gets cold. Other notes: -- Food was okay. Certainly nothing of high quality. Not surprising since why would the management try to upgrade the food if the Russians are just going to throw most of it away anyway? Dessert selection stays the same every evening, except for Saturdays when they add some basic cookies. I actually lost a little weight during my stay. -- Entire hotel had water problems on two successive days. No water in bathrooms (don't even want to think about how they washed the plates, glasses, cutlery, etc) for about 3-4 hours each time. -- Rest of guests were mainly older Germans, a few French and Brits were there as well. -- Taxi to Sousse costs 12-15 Dinars, taxi to Monastir costs 30-40 Dinars. Most drivers will offer to take you on future trips. -- Sousse Medina was not as bad as a lot of other reviews stated...some aggressive shopkeepers but nothing out of the ordinary for that type of culture. -- About a 30 minute walk (street or beach) to a surprising nice little port with shops and cafes. Taxi price is about 5 Dinars. -- Entertainment team was okay, nothing special. Evening programme was typically the team members trying to get guests to dance to a sound system that occasionally broke down. Tunisia is a nice place to visit, but I would look elsewhere for a hotel if we visit again
