Was with my daughter ( 19 years) there. Pleasantly surprised ☺ very beautiful hotel after the renovation, all very accommodating and friendly. Complaint of the hair dryer's was fixed promptly. Very large selection of food, so something for everyone. Partly very low in salt, but salt each. Great was also the drinks service at pool and beach, for that there was also always gladly gave tips.

Had a great holiday at Thalassa Sousse. Pool was really nice and the water park was lots of fun. The staff are very friendly and welcoming had a good laugh with the bar staff The entertainment group Animation were fantastic. they always had time to talk and joke around with guests and seemed great with kids. They were funny and the beach party they did was brilliant. The only thing we found we were not that fond of was the food. Sometimes cold and we struggled to find things to eat sometimes. Pancakes were nice though. The English restaurant was ... very good but could only eat there once. All in all a great holiday very entertaining and friendly staff just not great food. read hotel review

Best holiday I've been on!

  • June 2015
The hotel itself was large and well equipped for the amount of guests visiting. There is a large reception area with many seating areas and free wifi accessibility. There is also a shop here where the staff are very polite and helpful and you can get some home comforts and nibbles. There were 5 restaurants available to choose from (General buffet, English, Lebanese, Tunisian and for lunch there was Italian available) all but the general buffet need to be booked the day before but the buffet caters well for everyone and there was always something we all liked there. All ... staff very helpful and most are multi-lingual making all guests feel welcome. The area the hotel is on is large, there are over 1000 rooms, 3 swimming pools, a water park and private area of beach in the area of the hotel - all very well kept and clean. read hotel review

    From the minute we arrived at the hotel the staff were very helpful. They let us set our bags aside and get ourselves something to eat and drink before having to check in and go to our rooms. If we had any questions they were more than happy to help us. The staff at reception, although very helpful, had a very basic understanding of the English language which sometimes made it difficult but this did not impact on my holiday, we got by. All other staff were multi-lingual and very fluent in what they knew, not just basic phrases. Our rooms were cleaned daily by the maids with fresh bedding and towels put in. We did not have any cause for complaint during our stay but I believe if we had they would have done everything they could to help us.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    During our stay there were 5 restaurants available to us. The English, Lebanese, Italian (lunch only) and Tunisian ones had to be booked the day before but the general buffet was available without booking. Compared with other all inclusive holidays I have been on where I lived on chips for their duration, the food was exceptional here - every day there was something for everyone and often there were meats cooked fresh in front of you also. Fizzy drinks seem to be over loaded with sugar, most of my group stuck to fruit juice and water. Dining areas were remarkably clean for the amount of people dining in them, waiters very quick to change tables over and very helpful in finding you a seat. Atmosphere is very relaxed, you did not feel as though you had to eat and go, you were able to take your time and relax. As we were all inclusive cost was not an issue. Tipping practices are advised at 10% of bill, similar to Europe/UK.

  • Room
    5.0

    The room we were in was spotless, very clean including bathroom. The size of the room could have been better but in all honesty, we only ever slept in the room so it was perfect for our needs. There were two single beds together and a third separate to them. Furniture was perfect for what we needed, safe, fridge, TV remote etc were available at extra cost (Safe was 24TND or one week which is around £7.50 sterling). Building is slightly older and no elevator available which is not ideal trying to carry suitcases or prams etc up and down 4 flights of stairs but again, not detrimental to the holiday.

  • Location
    6.0

    The hotel is in a great location, it is a short 10minute walk from shops if you would like to look around. The next town over is approximately 10 minutes by taxi. We did not venture from the complex very often as it had everything we needed. Thomson run various excursions which you can book through the rep, there are opportunities to learn about history, go to markets or have a fun day out (my group went on the Zulu day, pirate adventure trip and quad biking) all very fun trips that I would book again. There is a stretch of private beach on the resort which is no more than 3 minutes walk from our room - on the beach there was various water ports available (para-gliding, jet skiing, banana boat etc.)

    There was ALWAYS something to do at the poolside/on the beach. From pool games, aqua aerobics, yoga, water polo, french balls there was always something happening. We were on a relaxing holiday so were happy to watch these activities but were one i offered and encouraged to join in. Absolute special thanks to the ANIMATION TEAM - they made our entire holiday! They are all so friendly, always making sure you are alright and enjoying yourself, even joining you in the evening and having a chat which made us feel very welcome. They are always dressed up, you never know what they are upto next and they are great with the kids - there is a kids club twice per day and when that is not on they are around the pool interacting with the kids and adults also. The beach is a beautiful white sand beach, the water is crystal clear and stunning and beach itself very clean. The pool is the most welcome and refreshing experience ever, the heat reached around 40 degrees while we were there and a jump into the pool was exactly what is needed. The sun beds are all looked after well and cleaned each night.

We had a great time at thalassa sousse, lots of day activities to take part in and shows every evening. The entertainment/animation team are a great team and definitely made our holiday. They are all extremely friendly and talk to everyone to make you feel welcome. The waterpark is great and beach and pool are lovely. The only downfall was the food which was not great but there was always something each day we found to eat even if it was basic. Would definitely recommend! read hotel review

I booked a holiday for myself and my daughter 12 years old mostly for her to enjoy the sun and swimming pool after school and we spent a great two weeks there. We got a nice room, called bungalow there, in front of the swimming pool and very close to the reception and main restaurant. We met a very nice and helpful person on the reception -Sabri. He was trying to help us every time we need. The territory of the hotel is quiet big with 3 swimming pools and water play ground for kids. Also there are a very ... modern aqua park, wich is free for hotel's guests. The beach is nice and clean. Sea is perfect. In the restaurant we always can find something to eat on our test. All staff and management of restaurant and bar department are kind and a very pleasant to guests. But a special atmosphere in the hotel you can feel, when animation team started them program. It is a best animation team I have ever seen in my life! Everybody is a very friendly and polite! Excellent mini-club for small kids! Excellent sport's games by the swimming pool and on the beach. You can make water gymnastics, yoga, step aerobics, water polo etc. Every evening there are a show program with dances, comedy, bingo and games on the open air on the terrasa. All people from animation team are very sportiv and some of them a very good dancers as well. And a special words we would like to say to a programm's Director of the 3 hotels - Mr. NINJA! For such a good organization of entertainment program every day and for the best team! Thanks to Luka, Liluo, Bibo, Larry, Yara, GiGi and to everybody, who made our holly days unforgettable in Tunis! All of you work so hard to make us happy! It was a pleasant stay in that hotel. I would like to come back for sure! read hotel review

Absolutely perfect complex for all ages - spot on!

  • April 2015
I booked this holiday for myself and my 16 year old son 3 weeks before we travelled as a last minute Easter break. We are very experienced travellers and this was my 20th (my sons 16th) holiday abroad. I have been to countless countries and continents and never go to the same hotel twice as we like to experience different places. We stayed from Sunday 29th March until Sunday 5th April. The hotel was absolutely great. We had a bungalow room near the main reception and main pool and was in a lovely location with the sun on our patio ... from 7am until 6.30pm. The hotel itself, gardens and grounds were all kept spotlessly clean at all times and the maids came and did a good job every day. We had 2 single beds and a sofa bed to choose from and all were very comfy with extra blankets and pillows available. Bathroom was very spacious and our bath/showers were always hot water at all times of the day. The only restaurant open for the first few days was the main buffet restaurant but the food was always hot (they do 2 sittings for each meal time where more fresh hot food would be put out) and we never went hungry as there was always something nice to eat. Not sure the English kids would be too happy if not use to foreign All Inclusive food but there was always plenty of tasty chips, freshly made pizza, lasagne, rice, cous cous, pasta, noodles, etc. Quite a lot of meat and fish dishes always on OFFER too (most cooked freshly in front of you) and lost of delicious deserts and icecream. Also a bread and salad bar too with lots of different sauces to choose from, oh and a different soup every day. We don't usually eat breakfast so only went down 3 times but there was toast, cereals, fresh pancakes as well as cheese/ham, omelettes, eggs, beans, tomatoes, etc. It seemed the more the week went on the better the food got each day. Half way through the week they opened the a la carte English restaurant which served 4 course meals and we had a lovely meal served to us in there. I believe the other restaurants are opening maybe end of April to May if not sooner? The reception always had at least 2 or 3 men in suits to look after your needs and there was always managers walking around at all times asking if everything is ok. I've never been to a hotel before where they have so many to help. The second day after we arrived we noticed the waterpark still wasn't open so asked why at the reception - one of the reception men immediately rang a manager and said we will get it open in the next hour - which they did! Must point out though that the slides weren't all open (i think only 7 were) and only opened for roughly 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours late afternoon. They will EXCHANGE MONEY at reception and on the last day they will exchange back any unused Dinars too (30 Dinars for £10). Wi-fi is free and you get 14,000 hours free to use. The signal is fab and we got a signal from our bungalow, round the pool and even at the top of the slides near the beach! The small shop in the hotel is good for bits and bobs. Cigarettes, etc cheap but i think his shoes and clothes can be bought cheaper from PEK or Sousse. Inside the reception area is immaculate and lots of seating always. This is where the main (and only at the moment) bar is. It closed at midnight which is ok for some people i guess but quite a few were disappointed we couldn't get drinks after this time. The animation team are a new team from last and previous years but they truly were the most fantastic people you will ever meet! I think we counted about 27 of them at the moment but i believe in summer they hire up to 39! The shows were very funny and they all WORK so hard. 7 days a week they work from 9am till midnight and they put in so much effort. During the day they have yoga classes, darts games, ball games, dancing lessons, including lots more all throughout the day and people of all ages join in and they are always so much fun. Sometimes they can be a little too pushy to join in especially with the dancing and the clapping for 30 mins before every show gets boring but still way more impressive than any other animation team i've ever seen before.P.S. if any animation team are reading this just want say big thank you from Malita & Keegan - we see you all again soon hopefully) I don't think i would come at Easter time again or so early in the season because of the waterpark not fully open, nobody at all around the relaxing ppol all week, the snack beach bar/restaurants not all open and the bars closing way too early. The beach was empty and there were no watersports available. Also very surprisingly there were hardly any English families at our hotel (maybe 10 if that) the hotel was packed full of Algerians and Tunisians and it did feel like they took over the place even though they all seemed very friendly enough. Also after going into Port El Kantoui and Sousse for the day i must admit we didn't really like Tunisia itself at all (probably ok for some but we are so well travelled we have a lot to compare to).although must say the port/marina at PEK was pretty and the small fairground looked nice. Also the beach at Sousse looked quite nice and clean even if there wasn't anyone sunbathing on it yet. Shops were dissappointing compared to other countries but we did get cheap converse (£5), Nike air Max (£35) cheap cigarettes (£1 a pack of 20). Also the beaches around our hotel were all deserted even though the weather was fabulous all week. Hopefully in the proper summertime everything will be open and i can only imagine when it all is the hotel will be awesome!! Like i said we never go back to the same place twice.BUT because we thought Thalassa Sousse was such a GREAT hotel we are already looking into going back for 2 weeks in July - which in all our years of travel is something we have never ever done before and always said we'd never do.so this must say something about how good the Thalassa Sousse is! Hoping to see you all again soon - Malita and Keegan from Boston, UK. read hotel review

We are very experienced travellers and this was my 20th (my sons 16th) holiday abroad. I have been to countless countries and continents and never go to the same hotel twice as we like to experience different places. We stayed from Sunday 29th March until Sunday 5th April. The hotel was absolutely great. We had a bungalow room near the main reception and main pool and was in a lovely location with the sun on our patio from 7am until 6.30pm. The hotel itself, gardens and grounds were all kept spotlessly clean at all times and the maids came and did a good job every day. We had 2 single beds and a sofa bed to choose from and all were very comfy with extra blankets and pillows available. Bathroom was very spacious and our bath/showers were always hot water at all times of the day. The only restaurant open for the first few days was the main buffet restaurant but the food was always hot (they do 2 sittings for each meal time where more fresh hot food would be put out) and we never went hungry as there was always something nice to eat. Not sure the English kids would be too happy if not use to foreign All Inclusive food but there was always plenty of tasty chips, freshly made pizza, lasagne, rice, cous cous, pasta, noodles, etc. Quite a lot of meat and fish dishes always on OFFER too (most cooked freshly in front of you) and lost of delicious deserts and icecream. Also a bread and salad bar too with lots of different sauces to choose from, oh and a different soup every day. We don't usually eat breakfast so only went down 3 times but there was toast, cereals, fresh pancakes as well as cheese/ham, omelettes, eggs, beans, tomatoes, etc. It seemed the more the week went on the better the food got each day. Half way through the week they opened the a la carte English restaurant which served 4 course meals and we had a lovely meal served to us in there. I believe the other restaurants are opening maybe end of April to May if not sooner? The reception always had at least 2 or 3 men in suits to look after your needs and there was always managers walking around at all times asking if everything is ok. I've never been to a hotel before where they have so many to help. The second day after we arrived we noticed the waterpark still wasn't open so asked why at the reception - one of the reception men immediately rang a manager and said we will get it open in the next hour - which they did! Must point out though that the slides weren't all open (i think only 7 were) and only opened for roughly 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours late afternoon. They will EXCHANGE MONEY at reception and on the last day they will exchange back any unused Dinars too (30 Dinars for £10). Wi-fi is free and you get 14,000 hours free to use. The signal is fab and we got a signal from our bungalow, round the pool and even at the top of the slides near the beach! The small shop in the hotel is good for bits and bobs. Cigarettes, etc cheap but i think his shoes and clothes can be bought cheaper from PEK or Sousse. Inside the reception area is immaculate and lots of seating always. This is where the main (and only at the moment) bar is. It closed at midnight which is ok for some people i guess but quite a few were disappointed we couldn't get drinks after this time. The animation team are a new team from last and previous years but they truly were the most fantastic people you will ever meet! I think we counted about 27 of them at the moment but i believe in summer they hire up to 39! The shows were very funny and they all WORK so hard. 7 days a week they work from 9am till midnight and they put in so much effort. During the day they have yoga classes, darts games, ball games, dancing lessons, including lots more all throughout the day and people of all ages join in and they are always so much fun. Sometimes they can be a little too pushy to join in especially with the dancing and the clapping for 30 mins before every show gets boring but still way more impressive than any other animation team i've ever seen before......P.S. if any animation team are reading this just want say big thank you from Malita & Keegan - we see you all again soon hopefully :) I don't think i would come at Easter time again or so early in the season because of the waterpark not fully open, nobody at all around the relaxing ppol all week, the snack beach bar/restaurants not all open and the bars closing way too early. The beach was empty and there were no watersports available. Also very surprisingly there were hardly any English families at our hotel (maybe 10 if that) the hotel was packed full of Algerians and Tunisians and it did feel like they took over the place even though they all seemed very friendly enough. Also after going into Port El Kantoui and Sousse for the day i must admit we didn't really like Tunisia itself at all (probably ok for some but we are so well travelled we have a lot to compare to).....although must say the port/marina at PEK was pretty and the small fairground looked nice. Also the beach at Sousse looked quite nice and clean even if there wasn't anyone sunbathing on it yet. Shops were dissappointing compared to other countries but we did get cheap converse (£5), Nike air Max (£35) cheap cigarettes (£1 a pack of 20). Also the beaches around our hotel were all deserted even though the weather was fabulous all week. Hopefully in the proper summertime everything will be open and i can only imagine when it all is the hotel will be awesome!! Like i said we never go back to the same place twice......BUT because we thought Thalassa Sousse was such a GREAT hotel we are already looking into going back for 2 weeks in July - which in all our years of travel is something we have never ever done before and always said we'd never do......so this must say something about how good the Thalassa Sousse is! Hoping to see you all again soon - Malita and Keegan from Boston, UK.

    Our bungalow room was perfect. Maids came every day and did a great job. TV had lots of channels although only 4 were English.

The entusiastic and warm approach from staff more than compensate for the condition of the hotel where a lot of rooms, areas and buildings in generel lacks of maintanence and it is clear the the hotel is not new/well kept. The entertainment with the various responsibles for sport, shows and games etc is of High standard but less encouraging to alway clap would be appreciated by most guests I assume read hotel review

Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted with smiling faces by all staff. Not one member of staff hesitated to show us where to go. They were all very very polite. The animation team in particular, Manel, offered us drinks and made us feel comfortable until being sent to our room which the manager of reception gave us the choice of staying in 2 different areas: rooms 156 and 157 by the pool which he allowed us to check before offering us the 1080 and 1081 twin rooms with an adjoining door as we had children with us therefore ... it was convenient to have the twin rooms. I felt they really considered our needs in that sense. The rooms itself were emmaculate! Not a speck of dirt or uncleanliness to be seen. Even the toilet was clean enough to eat off! Everyday the maids would clean our rooms spotless and if we were in the rooms at the times they were there they would have a lovely conversation with us rather than ignoring us and just doing their job. For this I have a lot of respect for them for. The hotel lobby was huge and the hotel itself including the lobby was well kept. The pool was slightly cold however this was due to the season and the month that we went in (March) but it was warm enough for people to swim in. The beds outside were also clean and kept tidied at the end of the day. read hotel review

    There was a wide variety of food with excellent staff serving it. You were allowed to request certain foods for example gluten free or egg free. Everyday they would cook something different that you could watch them cook in and around the dining hall.

    The rooms were excellently spaced and cleaned day in day out while being able to trust the maids not to touch your things or take anything without your permission. But remember to clear your beds as they will only make your bed if it doesn't have any of your things on it out of respect for you and not touching your stuff.

    Service was excellent. From managerial staff to kitchen staff. Everybody was open and friendly making you feel welcome.the managers would be around all day making contact with holiday makers which I thought was really nice as they didn't seem like they felt they had authority. They would do what other staff would do equally. The kitchen staff were also very helpful. They would ask you how your food was and allow you to ask for anything special you would like or any concerns you may have hence taking the opinions of the customers into consideration.

    The location of the hotel was close to the shopping area for souvenirs which would cost only a taxi fare of 5 dinars per taxi which was a considerable amount of money. There were apartments being built around the hotel which didn't look too pretty as it was a construction site however this was no fault of the hotels.

    Above all the animation team were what made the hotel so special. They would work day in day out to keep the residents happy with massive smiles on their faces all day and night. Not one member failed to speak to you and ask you how you are. They were all such lovely people. I couldn't fault them. They held shows in the evening for the children from 8.30pm-9.30pm which included group songs from all over the world and dances which would tire the children out ready for bed. Before the mini disco for the children would start,they would form a train around the hotel gathering children together making sure they would include every child so no child was left behind. Parents were allowed to join in too but they were also safe to leave them at the disco for the whole hour without feeling like something was to happen to their child. At firs when a child would join in on their first day, they would feel shy and no participate however the animation team would try their utmost best to make them feel welcome thus the second day until the holiday ends the children couldn't wait for the mini disco. After this, an evening of entertainment would be held for the adults which lasted from 9.30 to 11.00pm. This included dance shows, comedy sketches and loads more. I can honestly say I have never laughed so much in my life! Every single one of the animation team were absolutely hilarious especially in the sketch shows where they would dress in costumes and do mall sketches about the hotel or things they've seen or experienced and some of the residents would have experienced. If anything, the animation ream were what made the hotel so amazing. All day they'd be around the pool gathering people to join in games of darts or golf etc but it would be games of such laughter as they'd throw in their own jokes while playing and twist the games up a bit. Zumba classes were held during the day at 4pm everyday which was sooo fun as you would be dancing in the sun therefore it didn't feel like you were wasting your tanning time. The dance shows in the evening included am array of dances from all over the world which made the hotel a diverse one as the animators spoke in several different languages too making everyone feel part of one. During the whole evening, the audience were included very much into it as they would call people out to help them during their entertaining and after the whole show ended there would be a disco for the adults which felt like a club as their were flashing UV lights around and other lights which made it feel very warm. Throughout the day also, the animation team would be around the whole hotel making people smile. Even at lunch time they would ask of they can sit with you to eat which made you and them feel one rather than staff and resident. I felt this was really nice as it allowed for good conversation over the dinner table and it allowed you to get to know the team better. Overall they were honestly the most incredible people who deserve so much praise and so many thank you's as they were the ones who made that hotel worth staying there again and again.
