Reviewed March 31, 2012

Arrived at hotel march 18th 2012, late in the day. Restaurant was kept open so that we could have hot meal and got bottled water for room. Restaurant and Hotel staff very friendly and very helpful at all times. Rooms were cleaned every day. Weather was hot but could cloud over early afternoon. Animation team fantastic, always trying to keep everyone happy, well done to Wayne, Gogo, Roule and Marmado and collegues. Great holiday would go back.

The hotel is well situated on the beach. There are many green areas.
The staff was kind.
The restaurant was very good - varied and very tasty food on each meal. Good wine were included in the price!
The rooms were nice. We stayed in one of those small buildings and we were fascinated by the greenery around. The rooms were cleaned every day and in good condition.
The only thing that can be improved is the furniture as it is obsolete.
Briefly, we were satisfied by the hotel and we would stay there again.

Ive read previous reviews which gave me doubts about this hotel, but im glad we came here. The hotel and staff were all fantastic and couldnt do enough for us. The food was amazing and the hygiene was second to none. Overall i would be more than happy to stay here again and would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
The weather was not great but the animation team kept us entertained and it was a pleasant surprise that they spoke such good english. You also knew you could ask them anything should you need too.

I stayed at LTI Thalassa Hotel in Sousse with my Husband in October 2011 for 4 nights all inclusive. We have stayed in quite a few hotels in Sousse and this is certainly one of the best. The hotel is situated in the North end of Sousse in between Sousse and Port El Kantaoui. The hotel reception / foyer is very modern in appearance and there are lots of sofas and arm chairs to relax in, there is also wifi available however it is not free, I think it was 5TD for 1hr (but if you go outside the hotel to the Ella Center coffee shop next door they have free wifi, and coffee is about 1.5TD.
The hotel throughout appeared immaculately clean and staff very friendly and not hovering for tips.

Rooms / Chalets
Before booking this hotel on the internet I researched it a bit to see if there are any rooms which are not chalet / bungalow style, which there were, the hotel has about 2 blocks which have 3 floors and these rooms are the same price as the chalet / bungalows. When you book you cannot select an option if you prefer one of these you can only write it as an additional request that you would prefer and upper floor. (Reason we prefer upper floor is simply for more privacy in being able to leave balcony doors open, and being able to dry our clothes with out the concern that they will still be on the balcony when we return to our room).
The room was very nice and clean and very close to the main hotel. Please bare in mind if you do request a a chalet instead near the beach or adults pool although they are very well positioned, it is quite a walk to the main hotel. However if you request a chalet next to the main pool you will be near the hotel.

Food
The BEST all inclusive restaurant I have ever been to. The food is very nice, there is a huge varied selection, and it couldn't be more fresh. There is a large choice of salad, then there are a tapas / finger food kind of selection, many hot dishes to choose from including a few English dishes, cottage pie, beef stew, fish in batter and french fries and vegetables. There is a pasta buffet with 5 different types of pasta and 5 different pasta sauces, and freshly made pizza. Breakfast there is again a great selection, if you like to stick with English food there are sausages, baked beans, fried bread, scrambled egg, boiled egg, omelette etc… and of course all the continental selection. The waiters really keep on top of things in the restaurant unlike a lot of other hotels which are equally as busy, I don't think I once saw a table that hadn't been cleared immediately or a spillage that hadn't been cleaned up.

Bar / Drinks
The bar is very warm, welcoming and comfy, it is filled with low lighting, table lamps, standing lamps and carpeted to add extra comfort, there is a large terrace outside the bar where there was live music played every evening with many comfortable cushioned outdoor lounge seating and a table serving punch. The all inclusive drinks served were average, beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, tea & coffee. There is a pool bar which is again is very nice and handy for the chalets / rooms near the main pool and then the beach bar and beach snack bar.

Swimming Pool
We went into the main outdoor pool once during our stay as it was mid October and there was quite a cool breeze when we were there. There are 3 water slides for all and there's a children's pool area. The adults pool looked very relaxing and ideal if you are in a chalet next to it as it would just be like staying in a villa.
We used the indoor swimming pool once, it isn't very big but this was ok as wasn't too bust the time we were there.

Everything else
The hotel does lack entertainment. They do have an animation team but they don't seem to be put to use. As there is not an indoor show room (just out door theatre with tiered seating open high season), the evening shows low season are in the nightclub which is in the main hotel downstairs. The bar in the night club was not open when the shows were on which was inconvenient for everyone as everyone had to walk up stairs (or lift) to the main bar. To be honest the shows were not worth watching unless you are very easily amused (there were a few that were laughing their heads off) but everyone has their own opinion. The hotel is like all other hotels in Tunisia but this one probably more so strict on security which is very good.

I would return to this hotel but not between end of October and April because of the rooms being away from main hotel, I don't like walking to the main hotel / restaurant with a coat on whilst on holiday. I would definitely recommend this hotel, but maybe not to those with children, there is a kids club and playground but there is nothing for children to do during the evening, no children's entertainment nor game machines (although there are board games in the bar).

Any questions please contact me.

we have just returned from a two week holiday, we had no problems with our first week, very energetic entertainment team, providing activities daily around the pool, friendly bar staff.although the maid came everyday, we were not given clean towels nor were the bedsheets changed, like we were told there would be.after our first week it changed dramatically, the weather was horrendous, with thunderstorms and rain nonestop which lead to our bungalow flooding and cracks appearing in the walls with water seeping through! we went with two children our son is six months so the food and entertainment did not affect him and our 13yr old daughter, who became very bored due to lack of activities provided by the hotel for the older children, when the weather is not sunny. Theres only so many times you can play darts before getting bored.none of us are fussy eaters but quickily discovered if u dont like fish, you'll be living off pizza and chips. there were a couple of english families there at the same time,which helped us entain our daughter, otherwise i dont know what we would of done, once you've done all the shops and sights theres not much else to do. we couldnt wait to get home after week one was done,to top it all of, a protest congregated outside our hotel and began to hurl rocks and bricks from a near by building site at our hotel, apparently to due with the toutism sector, why the hell did we get sent there if our hotel was part of this!!!!the cot bed we were given for my son to sleep in was filthy,covered in milk and food stains,and the general hygiene of the rooms wasnt great.i wouldnt recommend this holiday to anyone.
