Just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday at this hotel. The rooms were clean, well equipped and large enough with a good size balcony. Please remember this is North Africa & don't try to compare with UK 4 & 5 star accommodation, however we had no issues whatsoever although there are no tea & coffee making facilities & a travel kettle is handy (the bar staff are happy to provide milk & tea bags). The hotel in general is clean and well maintained but what really makes this hotel is the staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, particularly the bar and restaurant staff who are all multi-lingual and put us to shame with their ability to communicate in at least 4 languages!
Tunisia is a very poor country and the majority of staff earn less in a week than most British in 1/2 day - therefore leaving a small tip of 2-3 Dinah will ensure that you get superb service as will attempting simple Arabic such as 'shokran' (thankyou).
The food was good on the whole with plenty of choice and there was not a day when we could not find something to eat and the A La Carte within the hotel was superb.
Poolside - the animation team work tirelessly to ensure that you enjoy yourselves but do not hassle if you do not wish to join in. Yes the sun loungers are looking a little tired but it is getting late in the season so maybe this is due for attention?
