...holiday to remember alright!!! First off I just want to say the staff (our maid, Ali the waiter, bag shop man, Ben and his helper (the jewelry stall) ) were fantastic a credit to the hotel......wish I could say the same about the rest of the place. Ok the place is clean but could do with some updating in places and dark corridors could do with new light bulbs!!
The food....not so good plenty choice but very repetative (thank god for cuppa soup and Jacobs crackers), sometimes raw and Luke warm at best. My 5yr old was ill the first weekend we were there so we were unable to leave the room for 3 days, followed by the next 4 of her refusing to eat (couldn't really blame her)
The pool. Ok so I'am a lighter sleeper and was amazed the first morning when sipping my cuppa on the balcony that people were out putting towels down at 5am!!! Then after our welcome meeting at 10.30 we were unable to get around the pool. So if you can't beat them join them......me down at the pool in my nightie lugging beds about. The pool was nice for the kids shallow in places and you can get a swim in if you want (and a nice ear infection too!!, both the kids were diagnosed with severe infections the day we got back). Ladies beware!!!! One morning I was accosted by a Tunisian fella who was demanding I met him on the beach that night to give me pleasure. I was scared but credit where it's due Stacey the rep filled in an incident report and passed it onto the hotel management who put extra security on during the night around the grounds ( as I said I'am a light sleeper and saw them walking around during the night) Must admit it did put a dampner on my holiday, my husband was not fit enough to travel and made me regret travelling alone.
Trips only did one trip to the frigula park......fantastic worth the money!! Kids loved it!!
Went to the evening entertainment once the whole fortnight......and stayed for ten minutes, haven do better (and that's saying something)
Drink....usual all inclusive stuff....beer ok tried a spirit but must admit I threw it away....everything tasted of disinfectant.....you could smell it on the floors in the morning and I'am sure they used the same stuff to clean the cups!! Stick to water ....sealed bottles and you can't go wrong with that!
So would I go back? Well if you had asked me that the Thursday before I was due to return home I would have said possibly but just for a week, however on the Friday the little one was poorly again.....and the Saturday....and on the Sunday I was praying she would be ok so we could get home. Even a sip of water made her violently ill. So dehydrated on the Sunday night we waved goodbye to the Houda and Tunisia. As we arrived into Newcastle my stomachs cramps started.....and so the tale goes on. A 14 yr old and 5 yr old with severe ear infections, and both me and my little one being diagnosed with food poisoning. A further 3 days sick from work for me and a further 10 days (yes that's right 10 days) off school for my little girl.....the Houdas lasting legacy???? She's been diagnosed with a dairy/lactose intolerance which apparently is common when you have had a serious bout of diarreha. Will we return? Will we hell.
