Just returned from a brilliant week at the Helios Beach as a solo female traveller. I wanted to post this review so British people would know what to expect if they go. Djerba is predominantly French but people from Germany, Sweden and Belgium etc holiday there. I travelled with Thomas Cook who have not used the resort for about 10 years until this month therefore they are not fully geared up to us and our ways. This will change as hopefully more and more Brits holiday. They do not speak much English but again this will change and got better during the week I was there as we had more conversations. I met some fantastic people from the UK but also some very friendly French and Swedish people.
The hotel is very very clean with 3 pools (normal pool, quiet pool and indoor pool too). Rooms are also clean and comfortable and with balcony or terrace. It is on the beach and this is lovely and well maintained.
If you want a holiday in the middle of nowhere in a hotel with excellent facilities then go but if you want something to do outside then no as there are no shops or anything nearby and only a couple of markets to go to by taxi.
There is also the hotel based amimation team who entertain you both during the day and the evening. They are full of energy and want you to join in all the time with dancing and activities. They are all good fun but can get a bit rowdy when they are together with the French.
I would certainly recommend going there and not once did i feel ill at ease at being on my own, if anything I was made to feel welcome and at home by everyone.
