I have just returned from an excellent stay at Hotel Acqua Viva. The hotel staff were very helpful, chatty, and many were fluent in basic English which was useful (we spoke only limited French.) The room was basic, but adequate. The hotel facilities were good: an outdoor pool, water slide (unsure if operational), indoor pool, and bar/social room with pool table.
The buffet breakfast was extremely good and there was sufficient variety. Pastries, cereal, bread rolls, sweet bread, salad etc. The evening buffet meal was also good. Guests are able to choose: meats, fish, salad, soup, several veg. dishes, and a selection of desserts-e.g. fruit, shortbreads.
The only major drawback of Hotel Acqua Viva is its location. It is very remote so taxis are required when journeying into La Marsa/Tunis. Taxis park up outside the hotel throughout the day. However, they do not use their meters, so you will get ripped off! If you require a taxi, it is much better to flag one down by the bus station on the main road, as these will generally switch on their metres.
Overall, a fantastic hotel.
