For Easter, I was surprised with a week’s break for my birthday at the Scheherazade by my daughter. It exceeded any expectations that I had from the photos she showed me online. Its excellent spa treatments were a real treat. It has the most wonderful spot on a secure secluded part of the beach that was breathtaking. The pool side is effectively managed and scrupulously cleaned by attentive, friendly and hardworking staff. The selection of sunbeds was amazing and if all was taken by the two pools, then there were always ones available on the beach under grass umbrellas.
A very special thank you to Mohamed (Reception staff) for going out of his way to mend my reading glasses... it meant I could finish my book on the beach!! Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the professional and friendly staff at this hotel particularly the entertainment staff, Hedi, Achraf, Jess. We had the opportunity to paint Easter eggs on Easter Sunday near the beach which will stay with us forever and thank you Achraf for the patience you showed when teaching us to write Arabic by the pool. The bar staff in the Reception/Main Bar deserve mentioning for their excellent customer service and their ‘special’ cocktails.
Be sure to take the opportunity to go on a Thomson trip. The trips are really cheap when converting to Tunisian Dinars and there is a wide selection for everybody’s tastes. It may be useful though for the rep to provide a more informative sheet (Itinerary for each trip?) regarding Tunisia culture, so that people feel safe and knowledgeable when out of the cocoon of the hotel.
Lastly, (I could go on!!) the all inclusive restaurant is outstanding. The variety of food was excellent and extremely tasty. Do not miss out the Tunisian corner; it was such a taste sensation along with the most amazing cakes and desserts for pudding. Thank you especially to the hardworking Balti, who attended to us each evening with a smile.
The beauty of the Scheherazade is not just the location but the staff. If you are reading these reviews because you are unsure what to do, do not hesitate, book now and you will not regret.
