We stayed in room 203 and my brother and sister-in- law in 201. Great location very quiet over looking front of hotel and gardens. Although Monistir Airport is across the road it never intruded on our holiday. Do not take Travellers cheques we found it very difficult to exchange them, stick to currency or atm, good rates everywhere. Take an extension lead only one plug socket in the rooms, which are very spacious and cleaned everyday. Do take insect repellent although we didnt get bitten flies are a nusiance but funniliy enough mostly around 4.30pm to 5.30pm lol. I dint see any bugs of any sort in our room. Dont bother with the tv remote it can be turned on manually, take some books or a kindle the beach is a fantastic place to relax. The sand is white, the sea is very shallow and amazingly clear and sunbeds and shade is avaliable free of charge. You can hire mattresses at 40p a day if you want, and towels but I took a couple of beach towels with us and I would take a lilo if you need it.,but if you want to put your sunbed in the sea and cool off you cant take the mattress too! There are also motorsports for hire, paragliding etc.
The hotel is lovely do not listen to any one who says otherwise, there were definately some professional moaners out there! The food was great I enjoyed every meal, I suppose some things were repeated but I always found something I hadnt had before. There were a good choice of drink availiable from soft drinks to vodka, although a couple of Dinar did make a difference to the size of them.
The Animation team are FANTASTIC I agree. If you wanted too, you good do an activity from 10 am to midnight, they kept everyone entertained and were very friendly even if you didnt have the inclination to join in!
Monistir is only a short tax ride away, about 7 Dinar (£2.50) and well worth a visit. Also Sousse has loads of shops , restarants etc and is well worth a visit ,15-20 Dinar (£7-10).
We also went on to the Zoo, this trip also included a 10 course meal drinks and entertainment- a fantastic day and well worth the 75 Dinar per person,(£30).
The weather was briliiant temp between 28 and 35 the whole time, although take a little cardigan there is a breeze at night which takes you a couple of days to get used to. Other than that just wear whatever is comfortable, linens,casual tops and comfy sandals are great.
This was a holiday booked online and after reading some of the reviews I had doubts, But dont let the bad reviews put you of. This is a great hotel, we all had a brialliant time and I wouldnt hesitate recommending it.
