First arrived at hotel to be greeted by receptionist with no people skills, wanted us to pay extra 50 dinar per room for a pool view which we had already paid for, eventually got our rooms for no extra cost only to not be able to locate them. Went back to reception who found it funny that we couldn't find them. Explained we are tired and hungry don't appreciate being laughed at. Was then shown our rooms which to be fair, were basic but clean. Bath and shower, 2 double beds and a tv wardrobe. Our patio doors opened onto the pool with slides and I must say there were only 5
Rooms with this facility so we had a result.. The kids thought it was amazing. The next day we sorted out our differences with receptionist and he was pleasant after that. We were bed and breakfast NOT all inclusive.. Breakfast was basic omlette pancakes bread rolls cereal. Or salad cheese cabbage stuff Eastern European. We had a look at all inclusive food and it looked horrific.. Would not recommend. We found a restaurant just next to hotel called Caruso. We ate there every night for 2 weeks. Our waiter Negi was amazing and worked so hard. In the hotel Ali baba is a sweet heart and Hanz looked after us. They both book trips for you. We went with camels which was enjoyable and also quad biking which was such fun.. Would recommend taking bottles if water
With you as u have to pay for drinks.. Also with camels you are given head protectors but need to pay for £3 dinar each. Entertainment in hotel is dated but u can't help but get enticed to dance with the animation team- Moomoo was the friendliest of the lot and the big chief was lazy. A lot if Russian German and polish at the hotel who to be honest were ignorant and rude. Sousse itself is a complete dive, dirty streets, absolutely over run with stray cats and the smell is atrocious.. One night we went for a walk and turnt left it was horrendous, police everywhere a man in a balaclava and a machine gun. You get approached by men saying they are ur coach driver enticing u to go with them to
Medina- DO nOT GO.. It looks like a war zone on the main broadway!!! The beach side was pleasant and the beach itself was lovely, clear warm sea. They do have small medosa jellyfish which sting, but like a nettle rash- take tomatoe with u and rub on sting. It didn't put us off going in the sea.. Not a lot to do, not many clean restaurant hence why we ate at Caruso every night.. Very very cheap out there dinner
Plus drinks for 7 was 122,600 dinar which is like £40. We came home with half
Our spending money!!! Not a lot to buy out there souvenir wise..
All in all we had an excellent holiday as we made most of our time there. But would
Not recommend Tunisia
To anyone looking to go there on holiday
