“Not as good as it was”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

I have stayed here 3 or 4 times in the last few years, and like most things in Tunisia, it's not as good as it once was. That said, the rooms are comfortable and well-equipped, the food outlets are reasonably good, and the bar is OK, although service is patchy.

Room Tip: Make sure your room does not look out over where the night club is

ı was staying there last week. I have been there many times before, but now in winter the occupency is less, the hotel is more silent . But the night club outside the hotel which belongs to Golden Tulip but managed by a third party makes such a ennoying noise from 12 midnight until 6 am, it is incredible.They are situated at the bst wieuw of the Hotel, infont of the sea and the forest. I complained to the reception, hotel manager but nobody cared. The only answer they give is that : we dont manage this place so we can not do anything. So if you stay at this hotel avoid any room infont of the night club.That's what ı did from my second nights, ı changed my room to the opposite side.
Otherwise it is a nice hotel, nice place, a little far from city center but it is worth. Nice İtalian and İndian restaurant inside, expensive but nice food

Room Tip: everything not in front of nightclub

We spend a month and a half last summer at this facility. we were by the pool, it was such a convenience, room service was very good. need a little of updating in the inside. Free Wifi is such a convenience, and the Cable as well. Every morning they will do the Cleaning and provide you with towels and all the necessities, with some tips they will do a marvelous job!
You can call anytime to order from the Restaurant, even in the Month of Ramadan, we had orders and everything was available on the menu.
P.S. Its hard to find a restaurant open in Ramadan, especially after the 2011 revolution.
most of all very safe Hotel and Residence, good for westerners and convenient

I stayed in a very clean room, very comfy..the hotel has great location (although a bit far from the city center) you can walk around to find a great view on the city of Tunis, for food you have two choices; la Stalla, for Italian (although chef is Tunisian) and Calcutta for Indian, I found at least two swimming pools, plus a heated on inside the spa center which is great.
The only bad point, is that the spa center is outside the hotel, about 50 meters..which is OK in summer but bad in cold weather.

Very nice business hotel , where you can share business and relaxing time, very nice restaurant and breakfast. The swimming pool is just a dream, the bedroom with good quality level , specially for Tunisia, just a bad point , the team quality specifically at the front deck doesn't have the level, any way in French , in English or in the minimum level of need that you have to know to do this job.

Room Tip: Room in front of swimming pool!!!

On paper the hotel should have been ideal for a long weekend break. Unfortunately we got off to a bad start having been told our room was one of the best and overlooked the pool. The room was ok and adequate but it overlooked the car park (noisy throughout the night).

A catalogue of let downs from not being able to eat outside one evening as another party had reserved the whole area, no pool bar or service, the worlds slowest bar, very smokey common areas, room key access problems that took hours to sort......

If you're taking a break and not on a conference, wedding etc don't book this hotel without taking the above into account.

On the plus side, the hotel was very clean and the food was very good. The location was not great as it was not on the beach and there was not much around but it was not too far from the airport. Make sure you negotiate your taxi - we paid 15 TD going to the hotel and then we asked the hotel to arrange a taxi for us to take us back to the airport to which we were told it would be 20TD. However, when we actually got to the airport the guy tried to charge us 48 TD, we refused and said we would pay 30 TD.

Both the indoor and the outdoor pool were very nice and the prices at the spa not unreasonable. Check the season before you go as the outdoor pool by the spa was closed when we visited.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one overlooking the main pool, it may be a bit noisy during the day but I imagine when...
