We have just got back at 4.40 this morning. 31/10/13.
well the complex is beautiful and the large pool is a hit with the kids but it has far to much sea salt in it so you can't be in it too long.
we took our two children 15 and 12 well there was nothing at all for them to do and I mean nothing!
The food was ok a good variation but not very hot kids food is better if you are in the blue wrists band section. Entertainment is poor it all happens around the middle pool and it's the only entertainment in the entire complex(little kids disco is good though).
WARNING if you go to Madina with a bloke from the hotel it's free (but you must tip the driver) tell them you only want to see the market and the harbour because they will take you to a carpet shop first this is very dodgy they won't let you leave until you buy a carpet and they are very overpriced.
Finally there was a suicide bomber 5 mins down the beach from our complex that scared us. Outside the complex there was nothing to do or go and visit within walking distance and it's a shame because it could be a great place if there was stuff to see.
To sum up if you like to lounge around the pool or beach all day then its the holiday for you but this active family will not be going to Tunisia again. Basically it's like marmite you will love it or hate it as we hated it.
