Spent 2 wks at the Green Golf Hotel on B & B basis. The breakfast choice was very good with lots of choice which being a vegetarian is hard to find in Tunisia! The coffee was hot but the tea was luke warm. Obviously being in Tunisia it's generally Tunisian in style! One English couple were overheard telling the chef have to do 'proper' boiled eggs! Near by are restaurants where we went to eat in the evenings. We mainly ate in the Marina area where the food was nice and very reasonably priced. We tried the Medina once but restaurants are more expensive & the waiters far more aggressive in their approach to get you to eat in their establishment. Not conducive at all to a relaxing meal out! The reception staff at the Green Golf were generally polite & helpful. One was less so, who on a Sunday would not (or could not) exchange our travellers cheques despite the fact there was nowhere else open & we had a very early morning excursion the next day which we needed money for. He told us he had phoned the hotel opposite & they would cash them but when we went there they said he had lied and they'd received no such call....they also refused to cash them! The waiters were always on the look out for a way to make some cash....so would overcharge for food/drink or short change you. We learnt to always be aware of prices before we paid the bill & have the correct change if possible. This practice went on pretty much everywhere we went so not specific to The Green Golf. Unfortunately for the waiters it meant they didn't get tipped...as for me they provided a dishonest service which is unacceptable! The maids however did a very nice job in the rooms, even putting rose petals down on one occasion.....so they did get tipped! We initially had a room at the front of the hotel but immediately on asking they moved us to a room overlooking the pool which was much nicer. The rooms are large & have a fridge & air conditioning (which we weren't charged extra for!) which was needed as even in October it was 30 degrees. We had spoken to others staying in a 5 star hotel down the road who'd had their air conditioning in the hotel switched off, so this was a definite plus for the Green Golf. Apparently we found out at the end of the holiday there was an entertainment manager on site, but all he did was put music on throughout the day...there was no entertainment whilst we were there. One day it rained so we asked if we could use the indoor pool, but was told it was closed for maintenance. We also tried to use the pool table but it was broken, so lost our money in it. We informed reception but they did not offer to refund our money, just suggested we try again by putting more money in it! On the whole the Green Golf Hotel is fairly rated as a 3 star hotel & is good value for money.
