Terrible stay Staff are not friendly at all starting from the car parking till the reception. They gave us a room at the extremity of the hotel despite I informed them that we have baby and that we can not walk all the way with the stroller and the lift to the third floor was not working. The first room...

This hotel claims to be a five star hotel, but is not close to this rating. The rooms are tired and poorly maintained. In my room the plastic chair on the balcony was broken, the TV remote was broken and the glass in the bathroom chipped. The bed linen is thin and aged. I stayed in the hotel for 2...

The title sums up thoughts pretty well. That's what comes to mind when I think back to this place. However that being said, it's not a pool for laps if that's what you're interested in. It's great for the family though as there are open enough places to swim and there's the lazy river. What else can I say? It's...

We went with another couple, they hadn't hot water in the room and the window could not be opened. There was no animation, the staff was not kind and not professionnal at all. They don't even hear...

We stayed in the hotel 3 days, just the time to discover the city. Not a lot of things to see in the city except big stones in the bay area and having some Quad rides in the nearby mountains. So we stayed in the hotel. Food was good, indoor swimming pool as well. Warm water, nothing to complain on....

We enjoyed Tabarka but Dar Ismail not so much. We went there in our honey moon as our last stop visiting three regions and three...

“Don't stay and if you do, eat somewhere else. Staff find you are pain. Not the usual for Tunisia. The hotel is huge, but I think most rooms are fairly similar. Air con is controlled and does not cool the room. Just open the door.”
