Just back from a week stay at Omar Khayam. (17th-23rd)
We were worried after reading some of the reviews but we were very happy when we got there.
The staff at the reception were friendly and willing to answer any questions, although the language barrier does sometimes make for misunderstandings but I can't speak Arabic/French so can't really complain about their English.
Our room (2536) was great for us. No complaints, if you’re expecting 5 star accommodation you may be disappointed.
Maids do a great job to ensure rooms are clean with fresh towel daily.
Pools are all clean and there are plenty of sun beds to put under parasols.
Slides are good fun especially if you have a rubber ring or lie-low. There is a quieter pool with fewer children at the other side of the hotel if you want a quiet swim this is a good spot.
The beach has lots of activities, we chose to do jet-skiing and parasailing at affordable prices (50DT per person for jet skis and 60 DT for both of us in the parasail).
Pedalos, kayaks, windsurfing and catamarans are free to use. The beach is kept clean with lots of sun beds to use.
Most food is cooked in front of you. Some things are very fresh as there was a huge tuna fish for dinner on a few occasions.
There is always something to eat for the unadventurous e.g. chips, pizza and salad.
If you are adventurous there is Tunisian food you could try too.
The snack bars offer chips, pizza, salad and best of all, cooked to order, pancakes with chocolate sauce!!!!
Well worth doing is the pirate ship cruise (with Thomson holidays 39DT per person)
Lunch is provided and sunscreen is advised.
Warning you will be asked to participate in the entertainment.
Quad biking, bookable with a salesman in the hotel, (as is the pirate ship) these are great fun and worth doing (60DT per person)
Overall it is a good all inclusive holiday destination for the money.
