The hotel itself is not bad. But unfortunately already aged and needed renovation the outdoor area was very well-kept and you had the rooms a beautiful view of the sea. To sousse city one can go to foot to the example medina 30 minutes very slow walk, to the port a tuck tuck (€2.50) The food only so much, breakfast every day the same, eggs, you had to cook in a pot. When plates for example with sausage were empty, there was no refill not even, if you know …  read hotel review

cannot fault a single thing. Chokri was fantastic. Sadly we were here during the terrorist attack and had the option to leave but we didn't. We decided to support this beautiful country and their people. The staff hotel paid a fitting tribute to the victims. I can't wait to return. read hotel review

The hotel is a bit outdated however the maintenance team are working on this, everyday we saw parts of the hotel being decorated. The shop in the hotel was good, however you could use the shop in the next hotel as well which was slightly larger. The wifi was quiet poor, however lots of guests were using it after the attack so this could be why. read hotel review

    The beach bar is much better at lunch, we ate there everyday. Food in general is very good, of course there is the usual chips pizza and burgers but so many more options as well. We didn't go hungry and my husband is a very fussy eater and he loved the food.

    The animation need to be thanded immensely! They are a great part of this hotel and aren't thanked as much as they should be. They made the hotel quite lovely after the attacks and without them the hotel would have been quite boring. The animation manager, chigery needs to be moved from this section of the hotel. We often heard him shouting at his staff, however there was no need to. He was very inappropriate towards females and always wanted to touch them, this is not what you need when you are on holiday! The pool was amazing, lovely warm water!

    There were 3 hotels in the fate, ours being the furthest away however this was good! The beach was amazing, fences all around the sellers couldn't hassle you and the next door hotels couldn't use our section. Very comforting when leaving valuables on the beach to go in the sea.

  • Service
    5.0

    All staff were exceptional. Of course the waiters rely on tips however if you tip them at the beginning of the holiday they don't badger you for anymore. If not, the exchange rate is so good, only a couple of dinars is sufficient for a tip.

    Rooms are a bit outdated but you get what you pay for. We booked a sea view room which was well worth the money! Lovely queen size bed in the room, big TV with English channels, fridge which worked and a wet room as they call it with great pressure in the shower. The only thing we didn't like about it was the 'lock' on the patio doors. It wasn't really a lock, more like a catch. This needs to be changed!!

Yes, the hotel itself might be a little 'old' and could use a freshening up. But who the hell cares that his/her room is not trendy or whatsoever if you stay outside all day long? What is more important is the fact that the cleaning lady made sure that every single day you returned to a spotless room. Further than that, the food was really really good. Ok, during my stay I saw different dishes coming back - but hey, that's all in - right? The staff was amazingly friendly. The entertainment was great, nice guys - maybe work a ... little on your evening show because they could also use some fixing up. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family, and we're thinking about coming back next year. Keep it up guys! read hotel review

My husband and I visited 29th May-12th June. Overall lovely hotel and staff. Lovely and quiet first week, started to get a lot busier 2nd week. You do get hassled quite a lot by the locals to buy stuff, but they're friendly enough! Beach was beautiful. read hotel review

    Just a couple of things that weren't great - there's only 2 bars in the hotel - smoking one which gets very busy and takes a while to get served. 2nd bar is none smoking, but very very old fashioned and they also hold the entertainment in there some nights. We got quick hacked off because they had a drag act in there one night, we'd already been sitting at the bar chatting with another couple for 2 hours prior, and they actually kicked us out because we hadn't booked tickets! They charge you 20 dinars for the show which we thought was ridiculous for an all inclusive hotel and apparently we were told by other guests it wasn't great anyway!

    Bring your own beach towels! They give you some at the resort but they're dark blue and very short! They get very very hot in the sun and you burn your feet at the bottom of sun lounger as the towel doesn't reach!

Wonderful animation team

  • November 2014
I booked to stay at this hotel, for a week in November, through a last minute deal as a chance to grab some winter sun and unwind. I had never been to Tunisia before but went off the recommendation from a couple of friends who had and I'm very glad that I did!! The hotel is lovely. As other people have advised previously, yes it is an old hotel but that gives it a great deal of character. I think people need to remember that 4 stars in Tunisia will not match that of4 stars in the UK; set your ... expectations accordingly and you will not be disappointed. The food (lunch/dinner) is plentiful and varied, I didn't eat the same thing twice my entire visit. I can't however comment on breakfast as I never got up early enough-/ The only thing I would say about the resturaunt is that they do allocate you seating for dinner when you arrive. However whilst there my table was allocated three times to different people! We were all arriving for dinner and expecting to sit at the same table! A note to the hotel - please let people sit where they want, it's easier. Also the choice of all inclusive drinks (soft and alcoholic) is very good compared to other hotels that I have stayed at. And finally. But by far the most important part! A REALLY big shout out to the animation team! Due to it being out of season there were only two animators working at the hotel during my stay - Sam and Tiga. Sam is a real genuine guy - I cannot sing his praises enough! He works very very hard and takes pride in doing his job well. He is always friendly and approachable and nothing is ever too much trouble. The Animation Team really do a fantastic job with very little resources and they really did make the holiday special. They never run out of energy or enthusiasm to entertain guests and they are always willing to help. These guys are a real credit to this hotel and it would just not be the same without them!! Keep up the good work guys. I will certainly be returning very soon!! read hotel review
