First of all a quick update on the Enfida Airport. To compare it to Monsatir is like chalk and cheese. There is no real comparison! Now there are about 12 passport control desks to get you into the country. Flying home and there is a choice of 60 departure gates. This experience made everything so much more easier. The downside is that the time to get to your hotel may well take anywhere between 40 minutes to 1 hour depending on the number of drop offs.
Now to the hotel. The owner and his son are to be congratulated on capital expenditure, at a time when most are cutting back. New lifts were being installed, the only problem was that the mock wooden interiors had already been defaced. Not so much the English etc., unless they were named Hadji or Ali.
Once the lifts had been finished and tidied up, all the corridor carpets were due to be replaced throughout. Trouble is unless you solve why the rainwater stains the carpets in the first placve, then you will just get the news ones stained later. On all the floors the normal windows that used to open at the lift areas have been replace by full length 6 foot high glass from wall to wall. The views to the gardens are really great now.
Not content with that it now turns out that all the old style televisions that are in the rooms, are going to be replaced by plasma screens. These were stuck at customs control at the time. Then for some the really good news, each room is to be fitted ouit with wifi access. As I understand it there will be a charge to get the code to access wifi. Management would be well advised not to set the price too high to start with. After all one can soon amble down to Fontinella's and for the price of a coffee obtain wifi for free!
To anyone thinking of going to this hotel I would say book now for next year as we have already done so as to get the best benefit from this hotel before it gets upgraded and increased in price.
The lack of people travelling to Tunisia due to fears about the place is totally misplaced. Those people living in Sousse have already paid a terrible price for the trouble that occurred mainly ti the capital Tunis. Many went without food.
The upside was that there were virtuall no long queues at dinner time, such a refreshing change. Just stroll in and get what you want. Also noted that where the cakes and bread are at breakfast time, in the evening there was a guy baking fresh pizzas. In general the quality of the meals seemed to have improved.
Overall our party had a thoroughly great time and myself and my great wife will be back there again in September when once more we look forward to meeting up with Ali our waiter, and of course Ali the remarkable sunlounger guru.
Also one last thing. The walk way down the side of the Movenpicks hotel to the Tej Marhabe beach ares has now been blockpaved completely.
