My boyfriend and I have just returned from a one week holiday on an all inclusive basis and overall we enjoyed our stay at the Les Colombes, the hotel has everything you need to use as a base if you want to explore Tunisia as we did. If your going on holiday to just relax by the pool or beach then this hotel is probably not for you as it is quite basic and the day-to-day entertainment and bar is very limited, saying that we did spend two days lounging around and we enjoyed these days very much but two days was more then enough for us.
I found the hotel staff to be very polite and helpful; the man that cleaned our room was lovely and so polite.
We decided to take a stroll around the complex to see what else it had to offer and found the closed down part of the hotel, I 100% can not fathom why the hotel owners/management are not using this part of the hotel, it was far nicer and more modern, the bar and pool area was far superior to the one currently used.
I would highly recommend you utilise the second pool although it’s located in the closed down part of the hotel you can still use the pool and it is cleaned to a high standard. But, there is no bar, I think the tranquil location and the views of the sea makes the 10 minutes walk to the bar and back worth it, also the entrance to the beach is far cleaner and far more inviting.
We participated in some water sports which we found great fun and the prices were comparable.
The hotel rooms are very basic but the view from the balcony is very nice so it made up for the simple room.
The restaurant is quite small and the food selection was quite basic but we could always find something to eat on the few occasions we ate there.
The bar area is quite dated and sometimes was very busy as it's so small, the drink selection was limited but I really enjoyed the wine.
The hotel location is good and very accessible, there are restaurants and shops located just a short walk away, like all over Tunisia you will get hassled by the shop owners but just simply say no thank you and keep walking.
We went on a two day excursion to the Sahara dessert where we met many people and had a fantastic time, the camel ride was amazing and the salt lakes are beyond words, the trip was worth every penny but there is a lot of sitting on the coach so I would not recommend the trip for families unless you have good entertainment for the children!
We also ventured out to Yasmine Hammamet on a few occasions which we loved; the marina is so pretty and has many fantastic restaurants. We went to main Hammamet which we didn’t really enjoy simply because there was not a lot to do there other then shopping which neither me nor boyfriend care for.
We would definitely return to Tunisia as the country is amazing but I don’t think we would use this hotel again not because we didn’t like it but as we are planning to return with a young child and feel a hotel that offers more entertainment and amenities would be better suited to us.
The hotel is not fantastic but it is good, it has everything for a cheap holiday and I think if people are realistic and open minded and just enjoy the place for what it is - a three star hotel -then you will have a good time. I would recommend it to couples who just want a base or people that are happy with the basic things in life.
