Stayed at this hotel in October 2013 for a week and had a lovely time with fantastic weather. Hotel is basic, but very clean with all necessities. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff - tipping goes a long way too. We spent most days on the beach which is beautiful. The 'sunbed man' kept an eye out for us each morning and placed toppers on our usual sunbeds for us. Food is basic but there was always something for us to eat. Bar staff quick and efficient, service with a smile! Rooms were quite spacious with all amenities. Evening entertainment was pretty poor.
We took a trip in to Port El Kantoui which is about a 10 minute taxi ride. It is built with tourists in mind but very pretty. Lots of shops with Tunisians trying to sell you items, a firm but kind 'no thank you' was enough for them to leave you alone.
We also tried out the night life in Sousse (BoraBora and The Saloon). Both were VERY busy, but good fun. Nowhere to sit for even 5 minutes, as the only seats were booths occupied by Tunisians who had 'reserved' them. Alcohol was cheap too! We felt safe, but did feel that we were being watched constantly. Getting a taxi was no trouble, remember to set a price before you get it - and haggle!
