“reliable option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We were initially hesitant about booking this hotel as we wanted something more closer to Sousse town centre and due to some of the reviews on this site. But we had a very enjoyable stay here and would recommend it.

We booked a superior double room directly with the hotel, for bed and breakfast only. The room was a decent size and with standard fixtures and fittings. Both the room itself and the hotel were extremely clean with fresh towels delivered daily. The standard and facilities were as expected of a large, international hotel chain.

We found the staff to be friendly, especially as we tipped at every opportunity, but not particularly efficient, but this seemed more to be down to the local culture than the hotel, as we found service to be leisurely elsewhere too.

The criticisms I would make are
- for 2 out of 3 days we went to the pool they had run out of towels, and the fact that we saw many people take their pool/beach towels back to the room suggests that this was not unusual.
- for a reasonably new hotel there did seem to be a general lack of maintenance. The lock on our balcony was unreliable (a problem as the air conditioning would not work with the door unlocked), and many of the sun loungers and parasols were in a poor state.

We did not eat in the hotel in the evening, but found the beach bar and tapas bar fine for lunch.

ı have been there for a business trip. I have stayed there before( each time they loose the past records) it is a fantastic hotel and beach. We had a dinner in one of their fancy restaurants of nouvelle cusine.high price, big plate , very small food. So if you want to eat only main course you better order everything min double portion.
The rooms are nice and clean,big and with a nice balcony with sea wiew. Breakfast open buffet again very poor, at 9 am. So you better have to be there very early if you want to eat better. I was there only for business trip, so for me the important was the room and sleep one night. We if you are there for a week of vacation with your family, you better find a restaurant nearby and a nice cafeteria for breakfast out of the hotel.

My husband and I have returned from a lovely relaxing holiday, first time in Tunisia. We booked this hotel, all inclusive for 1 week for a much needed relaxing break and thats exactly what is was. I wouldnt recommend taking children as their isnt much to do for them, and I agree there is nothing to do in the evening, but thats what we expected so we werent disappointed. Overall we enjoyed our stay and couldnt fault the rooms, staff, beach or gym. We didnt use the pool or spa so cant comment on that. The waiter service was fine, you just had to catch their eye and they were straight over, we did tip towards the end of the holiday but only because we were pleased with the service, not because we wanted them to wait on us hand and foot. The only down side I would say was the food. It was cold or at best slighly warm, evening meal service 6.30 - 8pm was a nightmare no service for drinks, tables not set up etc it was very busy - we were not impressed so decided we would just wait till 9pm for second sitting which was much more civilased - food still cold though. However I couldnt fault the grill and tapas restaurants and wish we had tried to book earlier for the sushi, the beach bar was great for lunch and fternoon tea. Overall we had a good time and it was what we expected. Dont know if I would go back, certainly not with my children, not because of the hotel though, just dont know if Tunisia is for me.

We were not supposed to be going to this hotel but as usual Thomas Cook had overbooked the hotel that we booked and we ended up here. Lovely beach and staff but there it ends.
Looks very grand from outside - clean and comfortable but not the five star it makes out to be.
We have been to better three star ones - only go here if you like cold or tepid food, nothing to do of a night time unless you like listening to someone plonking on a piano.
You can get a taxi to local amenities ie local marina which is brilliant with loads of shops, coloured fountains..The haggling is brilliant and fun.
We also booked a trip out but u guessed it they never turned up = thank you Thomas Cook for the most unforgettable holiday!!!!!!!
As for the hotel would not give it the 5 stars it think it is.

Room Tip: ask for one that is not next to a family - all walls are very thin

Stayed here for 2 nights for a work meeting. I had one of the suites of the 5th floor with 2 large roof terraces. Good fitness centre which was nice and cool despite the 40 degree heat outside. Place was full of all-inclusive holodaymakers making the most of the free beer at 9am.

Located right on the beach, so easy to choose between sitting by one of the pools or the sea.

We have just returned from Tunisia and had an amazing time! The hotel is beautiful. Service was 5* we tipped but don't think it would have made any difference. The spa is also very beautiful. We had a treatment together in the couples suite which was perfect. Very family friendly, excellent food. Very happy friendly staff! Amazing beach! One tiny thing which I thought could be improved is the cleaning of the rooms, our room wasn't cleaned before 4pm every day which meant returning from a long day on the beach to an untidy room. Would look at this brand when looking for our next holiday! Thank you for a lovely stay!
