Having read previous reviews I was apprehensive about staying in this hotel, but I had booked a very cheap last minute deal, and I had made up my mind that I could cope for a week.
I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It could do with updating and minor repairs were needed but overall it was acceptable.
Our room was spacious and although a bit dated the chambermaid did an excellent job and it was kept spotless during our stay. The bathroom could be updated a bit although it was clean and we had hot water. Tunisian plumbing is different to English plumbing.
The garden and pool area was well kept. Although I did not use the heated indoor pool it did appear popular with guests.
The food was plentiful and varied. I would have liked more local Tunisian food, there were a few each evening, but the Hotel has to cater to European tastes. I for one do not want to go to a foreign country and eat a full English breakfast. The meals were a buffet and the way some guests piled high their plates the food could not have been that bad.
You do have to cross a road to reach the beach. We had no trouble crossing the road, the one way system helped. The weather was not hot enough for us to sit one the beach. Parts of the beach were not too clean and tidy but this could have been because the sea was rough.
Overall I was happy with the hotel. I have paid a lot more for a lot less.
One tip if you like English tea take your own teabags.
