“Big Pool - Weird Hotel”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I attended a conference at this hotel. The room was comfortable and the pool was very nice - the service was, on the other had - VERY STRANGE. Upon check-in I was met with a guy called Anwar who glued himself to me and hussled me to purchase a 3-day spa package. He was over-bearing and really annoying ... less annoying, however, than the actual spa services I purchased. This hotel is strange.

Room Tip: The pool is wonderful. The breakfast buffett is also wonderful. The catering is AMAZING. The rest...

I am a little surprised to read that there are many discontents.
to us when we are already inhabited this hotel several times. And every time we are largely satisfied with the room, for personal service, especially the quality of meals (knowing that we, the people who are not very easy). We are sorry for people who have had bad experiences but for us, we are very satisfied with this hotel. Only one regret is the inter-net is not free. 8 TND per hour! is the uncomprehending as much as 5 stars hotel. Hoping that will change pay system!

The hotel is just about OK. We stayed for two nights as part of a tour and would not have chosen this place if we had booked independantly. Its not very expensive and you really get what you pay for.
Large dinning room with lots of choice from a several self service tables including hot and cold food. Not wonderful but again OK. Waiters were always playing 'catch up' but it is self service and they only really cleared away used plates, set tables and fetched drinks, service improved with a tip. Breakfast and dinner was representitive of all middle of the road (3 star) tourist hotels.
The Pool area looked good, the pool itself was large and looked relatively well cared for.
Our double room was located a long a largely unlit corridor and although it had a balcony this was very small and looked out into an inner and neglected and over grown court yard. This was not a balcony to sit and drink a toast to the setting sun! The room itself despite our request for non smoking had been used previously by what seemed to be a sucession of heavy smokers who had left burn marks on most of the furniture. The carpet was old and worn, the twin beds very low and nothing really looked or felt clean. The patio door would not lock, the safe would not work although the TV did and allowed us to watch BBC World News. The bathroom as you would expect had also seen better days although it was failry clean, had toiletries, a good supply of hot water and a working hair dryer.
Although the public areas were OK the room had an air of neglect and without doubt would be unsuitable for anyone planning to stay for more that one or two nights. Rooms that overlooked the pool area although not any better materially at least had a pleasant view. The room was quiet as there was an internal door separating the sleeping area from the bathroom/wardrobe area which is a thougthful touch so you dont hear noisey folks returning to their rooms late at night.
I would add however that considering what Tunisia has recently gone through and the loss of a significant number of tourists and business visitors the hotel appears to be still functioning. It desperately needs a refurnbishment.
The hotel is located someway out side of Tunis and within a tourist/ beach area which does not really appeal.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool have the best view but may be subject to noise from any external party

If you like to carry your bags over 50 yds, along numerous unlit corridors to a shabby,damp, dirty fetid room smelling strongly of cigarette smoke this is the hotel for you! The air conditioning in our room didn't work, the safe was broken and the patio door didn't lock so the room was insecure. Service in the restaurant was nonresistant from the waiters who would have been instantly dismissed for their behavior in a British hotel. This was a pity as we found the food served in the restaurant was really good both in quality and variety. If you like to drink spirits buy duty free on the plane as a double cost one of our party 14 Dinar (£7) in the bar. (Small bottle of Beer costs 4 D(£2) and a bottle of Wine 24 Dinar (£12) ). Please see the pictures for the 'view' you will enjoy.

Room Tip: Try and get a non-smoking room which overlooks the swimming pool and ensure you have an operational...

Filthy sheets, lumpy pillows, badly stained carpet, mattress harder than sleeping on the floor, towel rail hanging off the wall, hairdryer hanging off the wall, toilet roll holder hanging off the wall, lack of lightbulbs, no instructions for the safe, repeated requests for instructions ignored...but the safe was screwed to a removable shelf so probably not the safest place to put your passport anyway......and that was just the bedroom. The dining room was "sticky". Luke warm tea and coffee, warm salads and tepid chicken stew - the bread was nice though.

Room Tip: chose another hotel....
