A brilliant place for a family holiday but steer clear if you want a romantic couply break. We totalled 13 in our party occupying 4 rooms. The place is spotless, staff cleaning, tidying and wiping constantly. We went for an October half term break and the weather was perfect for us, one slightly cloudy day but bikinis the rest of the time and no need for a cardigan in the evening. Rooms spacious and modern, the 'den' for the kids worked well and we used it as a base for the 7 kids to watch a dvd whilst adults played cards in the main room. All (local ) hotel staff very good, nothing too much bother - the restaurant manager was very good, sorting us large tables out as soon as we made an appearance.
The reps are fantastic. They work very very hard and always to an excellent standard and my children - who were reticent about going in the 'kids club' could not wait to go in each session. Activities are happening almost every half hour, archery to high ropes, beach volleyball to table tennis as well as quizzes, dancing, bingo and performances. The beach is lovely and the sofa boat ( think banana boat but sit in like a sofa) was worth the 10 dinar each.
We visited Hamammet medina by taxi which was a good experience but you do get hassled a bit so be prepared for this. Haggling is good fun - you have to decide what you would pay for an item and not go above it. I went running with a friend outside the complex and felt completely safe.
Food - huge choice and if you want to stay safe with pasta, chips, nuggets etc you can but there is so much delicious local fayre to try it seems a shame. Salads are amazing, puddings/cakes delicious, none of us had any tummy troubles despite having ice in drinks. We ate outside a few times and the flies are a bit of a nuisance but not so it spoils anything.
Would def go again - this time for longr.
