OK, the basics.
1/ Don't take any dinars, the hotel changes sterling no problem.
2/ Get plenty of 1/2 and 1 dinar coins, the sunbed mattress guys expect a tip (you'll need a mattress). We tipped 1 Dinar for 3 mattresses daily and they seemed happy..Also, don't waste time looking for them, they'll find you.
3/ We tipped the waiter 10 dinars at the end of our 1 week stay, he seemed happy and was worth it as you get the same table/waiter for the duration and they are good.
4/ Don't bother tipping the bar staff as they give short measures and were miserable on the whole.
5/ If you like a beer, ask for a large one, you'll get a pint tankard of beer.
6/ The snack bar on the beach is very nice for lunch and is included in the all inclusive...Ice cream at lunch as well.
7/ At the end of your stay get rid of your dinars as you cannot take any past passport control, nice of the rep to tell us on the coach back to the airport.
All in all, not a bad place for the cash, we paid 1100 for 3 of us all inclusive for 1 week in june via Thomas cook. If i'd paid any more I would not be so satisfied. Rooms are small but ok, food is reasonable and the pools are nice, the water park is also ok and open 10-12 and 3-5. You don't need to be up at 5am to put your towels down, there always seemed to be free sunbeds whilst we were there. In summary, as I've said earlier, rated as very good for what we paid.
