we arrived 1st may 2013, myself and my 2 children aged 2 and 10. It was the first day of the hotel opening and for the first 4 days was very quite. After requesting a ground floor room we arrived to a 1st floor room which was quickly changed to a ground floor room. We were in manar 2. The hotel is split into 2 buildings manar 1 and manar 2. Manar 1 is in the main building close to reception and resturant where manar 2 is down by the pools. Manar 2 has its own family bar in its lobby. We were given a room right by the pools. The terrace for the room is not enclosed and the terrace doors DONT lock which is dangerous if you have an active toddler that can open doors. On more than one occasion my 2yr old opened the door and ran towards the pool area. The front door does also lock from the inside. After stating this to the reps a chain was put on the terrace door. I feel this should be standard as 1st floor and above rooms have chains on the door to prevent children going
Out on the balcony and falling. I feel this is an accident waiting to happen. The rooms are not that big and you have to request tea and coffee making facilites. There is 2 shops in the hotel but not worth venturing out as there is nothing outside. The beach is lovely and there are people selling things on the beach but they are not allowed by security to venture up the beach and approach people. Dont buy lambert and butler cigarrettes off the seller. You cant buy these in tunisia therefore the ones they sell are fake and dangerous. The food is good. Plenty of choice. The pools are freezing but it didnt bother the kids. For me the daytime entertainment is a bit much, very noisey and a bit butlins abroad people being thrown in the pool on a regular basis and i can only imagine it being worse in high season. You can get bottles of water from any bar and also cartons of milk if required. The internet is free in the lobby bar so you can connect any device there. The staff are very helpful including the reps. The transfer is about an hour. The airport in tunisia is very quick to check in and easy but take a pen as you have to fill out forms when you arrive and go home. I think ive covered everything but dont hesitate to contact me for any other info.
