This year I returned to El Mouradi Club Selima. This is the third time I have visited this hotel and it is nice that the staff remembered me!!!! It is only a 3* Hotel and the bedrooms are a little dated but hey ho - you only wash, change and sleep in them!!! I was in room 1807 which is in a block close to the hotel and on the first floor. The rooms are cleaned daily, with fresh clean towels supplied every day. The cleaner usualy comes about 13:00 to 14:00. There is a tv in the room. The remote is 15 dinar deposit, but you can control tv without remote. There were 2 english movie channels (9 + 11) plus an english world news channel. It is an all inclusive hotel and there is ALWAYS something to eat. I am a very picky eater and anyone who says that there was nothing for them is a liar. They do chicken, turkey, beef, lamb, rabbit, fish, fresh cooked liver which is cooked in front of you, pasta eg bolognese etc, as well as some traditional tunisian foods - I recommend the Tagine.They also do fantastic sweets, the mousse is to die for. There are also little cakes, ice cream and fresh fruit available. In the restaurant you get the same waiter for the duration of the holiday. You are supplied with fresh sealed bottled drinks of your choice - Fanta, Cola, Sprite, still water, sparkling water, white wine or red wine, or a combination of all the drinks,I usually had white wine, water and sprite. The waiter makes sure that everything is perfect for you. On my last day, he even decorated the table with flowers for me and my friends!!!! You are also entitled to one "gourmet meal" while you are there. Basically, it is a three course meal in the Italian diner - I preferred the normal restaurant!! The animation team this year were new and consequently not very good. DJ Momo is still there - he is great. One night there was a traditional show put on with traditional tunisian music and tunisian bellydancers. It was brilliant. There was also a man who put pots on his head - 7 pots at once!!! There are 2 swimming pools with a lot of free sunbeds round them - you have to pay for the pads to put on the beds - 2 dinars which is about 80p, every day. You can also use the towels out of your bathroom for around the pool/beach. A short walk from the restaurant and you are on the beach. Again, there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols but you had to pay for the sunbed pads. There is plenty of water activity available - but you have to pay for this. A ride on a banana is about £6, paragliding is about £12. If you fancy going for a walk, about 5 mins and you come to a couple of shopping complexes - Ali Baba and the Hawaii centre. Both are good for your souvenir shopping. To get a good deal on the likes of leather bags and coats, I recommend you get a taxi to Sousse and go to the Medina. You must remember to haggle to get the best price and do not buy the first thing you see that you like - if you walk a little further you may get the same item for less!!!! The leather bags are excellent value!!!. If you do not want to go to Sousse, visit the Marina where you can go on all sorts of boat trips. There are quite a few shops there that sell bags and other souvenirs - remember to haggle. Check out the hotel shops first as you may find what you want which may be cheaper than the shops. If you go for a henna tattoo - get it done in the hotel as their henna is licensed so as not to cause allergic reactions. Outside tattooists cannot guarantee this. It does not matter what your nationality is - you are guaranteed that at least one member of staff will be able to talk your language. The hotel has many different nationalities visiting. When I was there, there were French, German, Slovenian, Lithuanian, Tunisian and English. A very good hotel with very friendly staff. I thoroughly recommend it!!!
