“Good hotel”
Reviewed March 13, 2006

Positives:
- Waiters in the main hotel restaurant, faultless service, you keep the same waiter, ours was great, always a smile and a joke.
- Cleaners in the room were great, spotless room, regularly changed linen and even arranged all our toiletries in the bathroom - superb!
- 2 day safari trip - well worth it even though it rained a bit on ours.
- Louage taxis which are estate cars or minibuses that only go when they're filled up with 6-7 people. The locals take them everywhere and they're dirt cheap: 2.5D to Monastir, versus ten times that for a taxi! If you don't mind sharing your journey with the locals, it's the best way to travel.
Medinas - the name for the old part of town, usually surrounded by a large fortified wall, great experience but only if you want to buy something, it's very hard to ignore/not look at anything without being descended on by the shopkeeper who'll give you the hard sell - be firm and learn to say no, thankyou (or "la shukran" in Arabic).
- Friendly locals who'll always try and help you.

Negatives:
- Unwelcoming reception staff.
- Smokers! They're everywhere in Tunisia and the hotel stank of cigarettes. We could barely sit in the reception without coughing.
- TV in the room consisted of one English language channel out of 19 channels which was odd considering the amount of English guests at the hotel.
- Taxi drivers who rip you off, as a guide you should only pay 1 Dinar to get to the Sousse medina from the hotel (make sure they take the route along the seafront, some take the longer route through the city and you end up paying 2D) and 3D to get to Port el Kantoui. Set the price before you drive off if possible.
- The rep will say that the hotel exchange rate is the same as all the banks elsewhere - b*lls! Venture down the road and you get a much better rate. We made a habit of popping into banks when we found them to check on the rate which varied quite a bit, don't change your money all at once and shop around.

Wonderful holiday. Lovely hotel and great facilities. Indoor and outdoor pools - the inside one is lovely and warm. The Hammam is a very enjoyable experience too.
The food is good and entertainment every night. I will return

The pace was ok. The food was poor and the swimming pool facilities were dogdy. Also the staff were very niave. The people in general are not very nice

just returned from a 7 night break half board stay, we had a lovely stay in this hotel, we found this hotel very central with good public transport services if required, walking distance to the beach which was a lovely beach with sunbeds which are free if your a guest staying in the hotel, just a small tip for the young man who brings sunbeds over to you, as for hotel pools we found them very good the outside pool was very cold no shortage of sunbeds either which is fantastic. the indoor pool very warm, there is a gym also you can use but you will have to pay extra if you wish to you this but guests get it cheaper, also a hairdressers and you can have a massage for a reasonable fixed price, there is a piano bar and a bar that is cental in the hotel, the reception is a big area with the main bar and lots of seating also the evening entertainment goes on there. there are tennis courts also and a english pub and shops set in the grounds of the hotel complex also a nightclub. the food we found was good we did eat out a couple of times just to try other things but all in all it was fine. the bedrooms we personally think are rather dated and could do we a upgrade as we found the beds although very large far to hard as the base is made out of concrete and carpeted over then a two single matresses again very firm placed on top, the bedrooms were cleaned everyday with clean towels and sheets so very good service. we found the hotel very clean as you always see someone cleaning . the staff were all very nice and friendly, all in all we had a lovely holiday and would recommend this hotel to other people but for familys with young children from what we could see and make out there was nothing for kids, so i would advise anyone with young family to find out first what was on offer for children before booking.
we would go back to tunisia only we would now try another area as we personally like to see and try other things..
