My Fiancee and I travelled to this hotel to celebrate our engagement and to have a break after a very busy Christmas, we booked with Thomson and were all inclusive.
We payed £40 to upgrade to a "superior" room which turned out to be a suite overlooking the ocean and beach, money well spent!
We found the staff to be excellent and were very well looked after by the restaurant manager Nabil who was very attentive and professional. The waiters in the Chefs Market restaurant were fantastic working away in the background, always topping up the wine, very efficient but not intrusive. I had a couple of hazy mornings after enjoying the Tunisian wine which was top class, courtesy of Nizar!
The food was great, very good variety each day, breakfast - lunch and dinner, no items on the buffet were repeated throughout the week - I don't know how the chefs could put on such a good spread!
The outdoor pools were too cold to use however the indoor pool was lovely, nice and warm with plenty of fresh towels provided and friendly pool attendants, the beach was well maintained by the hotel and was brushed every day which made it a pleasure to walk on!
We went into the bar in the evenings and they had some light entertainment which was quite fun but not quite the Xfactor, to be fair it was just what I wanted apart from the football which seemed to feature on the big screen most nights as there was a local football team occupying some of the hotel.
My only regret of the trip was leaving the hotel to go into Monastir, no tourists in sight but us, the marina was nice but the town was intimidating, lots of men claiming to work in our hotel offering free tours and very pushy shop owners, stay in the hotel bar!
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a relaxing holiday, splash some cash on the spa next door as its well worth the money, we paid £50 each for a "rasul" massage and scrub which was amazing.
I'll be holidaying here again for sure!
