We booked a package with Thomas Cook last minute and arrived at the hotel on March 6th.I was awed by the beautiful reception area and as there were only us and another 2 people checking in it only took a couple of minutes to get our room keys and head up.We were given a room on the second floor which needed updating but covered our needs.When we walked out on the balcony however we had a view over the dump at the back.We figured the sun wasn't going to hit at any point so it didn't matter.There was scaffolding being drilled into the outside wall which didn't bother us until 9AM one morning after a fabulous night at The Rose and Crown!After phoning down to reception they organised for the drilling to stop and were offered another room on the other side of the hotel.It was smaller but overlooked the pool and out over the sea.It was a wonder I had made it this far as after 2 days I was ready to come home not because of the hotel but the intimidating 'pushers' on the streets.The friendliness,helpfulness and genuine kindness of the staff changed my opinion.All of them spoke English and went out of their way to make a conversation with us.The barman in the English pub(Zarook) became a great friend and like all of the staff couldn't have done enough for us.The prices are cheap enough that 2 beers and a good tip costs £4.ALL service staff(home and abroad) live off their tips and they really do appreciate it.We made friends for life here(guests AND staff) and are planning on another trip later this year.Tunisia is a completely different world and culture, but if you open your eyes and heart you will get one of the greatest experiences of your life.Shukran Tej Marhaba.
