We paid around £350 each for flights, baggage, transfers and hotel all inclusive (flying from Glasgow). We weren't expecting much but were very pleasantly surprised! The room was clean and everything worked fine. The view was spectacular (we had paid an extra £10 each for sea view, well worth it!) The food was varied and there was plenty of it, bear in mind that the price paid is very low.
Most staff are very pleasant and special mention to Jacqui and the wee man who were on the go from around 8am until 2am each day entertaining guests.
If you are expecting Tunisian 4 star to be on the same level as UK 4 star then you will be disappointed but if you keep an open mind with regards to the price that you have paid then you should be just as happy as we were.
A few quick tips:
*The spa in the hotel was great and we had 3 hours and 4 treatments for around £35.00.
* Do not wander past the fence on the beach, a beach seller tried to rob me! They will not come in past the boundary fence though.
*The only time i recommend anyone to pass the fence is to try out the jet-skiing and paragliding just up the beach, very cheap and good fun.
*It is impossible to get cider or decent menthol cigarettes in Sousse. If you like these (like I do!) then either take your own or go without. Do not buy what they call menthol cigarettes, they are absolutely awful. Cider is unheard of.
*Wi-fi is available but it's hit or miss, far too many people trying to use it for the capability of the router.
I would definitely return but with a male or mixed group, not as two females.
If you have never been to Tunisia before then definitely research it, especially if you are an all female group.
