A slightly smaller klubanlage, with approximately 250 rooms, very clean, all inclusive, very international guests, during the vacation many children, as it is great for children. The rooms are very spacious and kept in pristine condition. Wi-fi is only in the hotel at the front desk! Good shopping possibilities in the hotel. …  read hotel review

Regretably the vacation not my expectations. In the hotel it rained in many places by. Although the room was great... But the rest was really to be desired. The entertainers and the bartender had hardly still want to work. The bars and restaurants made early to or only not at all on. The general toilets were not clean. The disco smelled so bad, that you not purely to leave. Much was broken... …  read hotel review

Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. The pools looked clean and the grounds were kept beautifully by the gardening staff. read hotel review
  • Sport & Leisure
    4.0

    The pools were lovely, particularly the relax pool but spoiled at times by the loud music booming out from the large pool closest to the main building. Sunbeds ok but the mattresses seem thin and worn so not all that comfortable. There are lots of notices around stating that sunbeds are unable to be reserved but this is a nonsense considering that towels were already out long before 8am. There could be more sun umbrellas. The towel exchange was fine as long as you got there just after the fresh batch arrived otherwise they were all gone. The beach towels are quite small considering their purpose and it would have been good to either have bigger towels that covered more of the the sun bed or the option to have 2 towels per person. Currently the towel only covers about half of the sunbed and there was no evidence of sunbed mattresses being cleaned so the risk of infection is higher. Internet access around the complex isn't particularly good although we had perfect wi-fi connection in our room

  • Room
    5.0

    Our room was very large, spacious and clean. More electrical sockets would have been helpful, particularly next to where the kettle lives and double ones next to the bed as now most travellers need to recharge mobile phones, e-readers etc so your only option is to unplug the lights to recharge your devices. The bed was huge but the mattress was so hard it was difficult to get comfortable. The air-con worked well. The mini bar was stocked with water, Coke and Fanta orange. The only other option available was tea - no coffee available at all despite asking. The bathroom was just OK - everything you needed but maybe a bit tired. The dressing gown hook was so high on the wall I needed to stand on a chair to use it. Our room cleaner was excellent, room left clean and tidy every day.

  • Service
    6.0

    The service we received from staff was consistently high, from general queries to room cleaning and wait staff. Although the hotel seems to be mainly geared up for the German tourist, we were able to make ourselves understood in English but definitely felt in the minority at times. We tipped on departure to staff that had consistently provided good service during our stay - Mongli in the Terrace restaurant, Aymen in the lunchtime snack restaurant and our room cleaner.

  • Location
    6.0

    The location was brilliant for us as we just wanted a chill out beach holiday. Transfer time from the airport was about 35-45 minutes by coach. Can't comment on shopping opportunities or excursions but the organised trips seemed expensive so we had even less inclination to participate.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    This rating would have been excellent but the Italian A la Cart spoiled it somewhat. This meal did not meet our expectations at all. The restaurant had no atmosphere at all, never mind an Italian theme and could easily have been used for fitness classes during the day with very little modification. The meal was just about average and not of a high standard at all. The quality was consistently better in the main restaurant. The whole experience felt very rushed - we were in and out in just under an hour! The high spot was the gentleman pianist. The Thai restaurant experience was much better, the food was plentiful, tasty and hot and the service was excellent. There had been an obvious attempt to theme the restaurant. I did wonder why both A la cart meals offered a beautiful basket of bread and rolls but no plate or butter in either restaurant although these were eventually provided when requested. The food in the Magico restaurant was consistently good throughout our stay and there were plenty of menu choices. The themed evenings worked well and the variety of menu was more than acceptable. Our only criticism again was that everything seemed to be geared towards the German visitor so the breakfast choices for us were limited. The addition of fresh fruit juices would be very welcome rather than the current overly sweet and tasteless offering. It would have been nice to have proper Danish pastries, cake and desserts rather than the bland varieties offered but the ice creams were lovely. We only dined in the main restaurant once and found it to be very noisy and busy although the waiters did try their best to keep up with table clearing, cleaning and resetting. The rest of our meals were eaten out on the terrace which was a much more pleasant experience. The wait staff working on the terrace were excellent, friendly and attentive. We ate lunch in the snack restaurant situated in the middle of the complex. Food choices were quite limited when you excluded the daily fare of spaghetti bolognese and pizza but again, the service was pretty good. Drinks were plentiful throughout the day but the plastic cups look well used. The cocktails didn't taste that great, fairly tasteless and insipid. Coffee was Ok considering it was a standard machine issue.

2nd July 2014 my girlfriend and i came here for 14nights and wanted to cry when it was time to go home! The hotel is amazing. Don't think i could fault it in anyway possible! So much choice of things to do. Impossible to get bored. If your the type of people that would prefer to just chill out and relax for 2weeks then this hotel is for you, there is no hassle from anyone around the pool, choice of different pools like relax pool instead of entertainment pool. If your the type of people that like to do things ... in your hotel then this hotel is still for you! Constant entertainment available and the entertainment staff are amazing! All of them are so nice and welcoming and to be honest made our holiday! Always plenty of sun beds available in the morning don't have to get up especially early to put towels out. If you can't find a bed then any of the staff are more than happy to help you get one. Food is very nice different choices everyday and they dress up the restaurants everyday to match up with the event they are doing that night which also matches up with the evening entertainment. For example red/white party. read hotel review

    I think i covered everything on the entertainment already.. Amazing... Some of the games that i can remember include... Archery, twice a day done by flo.. Water aerobics done by the lovely Acrobat Gyselle.. A 12pm pool game which depends on how many numbers they can get which are very fun, followed by jumbo jumbo (the club magic life dance) after lunch theres water polo with Lenni, shuffleboard with Nizar, bocha twice a day with Lucy and finally darts. Now these are only a selected few of the activities that we participated in but there are lots more including.. Beach volleyball twice a day.. Salsa classes.. And also if you have children there is a children's club where a few of the entertainers take the kids away for a couple of hours around the pool and hotel and play various games with them.. Keeping them entertained and also giving you the time to relax and get your sunbathing in :)

    Rooms are very nice with a bath and shower.. Instant hot water if you really want a hot shower... Air conditioning.. 26inch tv with 4 different languages, english french german and arabic.. A seperate toilet, a safe, plenty of storage space for your clothes, wardrobe.. A nice sized balcony. Room is a perfect size. We didnt have any problems at all apart from i was clumsy enough to smash my glass on the floor but a quick call to reception and someone was round almost before i had put the phone down. Very responsive.

  • Location
    6.0

    Location was also great... Only 25mins from the airport and getting picked up last also means only 25mins to the airport. The hotel has some sort of priority over other hotels in hammamet as your are always the last one to get picked up before you trip meaning you dont have to sit on the coach for hours.. And you are always the first on to get dropped off. The hotel is only a 20minute walk away from the port which is full of fixed priced shops, restaurants, and a market called the medina,which obviously isnt fixed price but if you enjoy haggling your price than thats the place to go. If you dont want to walk then you can get a tuc tuc down or back for only 10dinar but the walk is quite nice anyway. 2minute walk from the hotel is a couple of small shops which i do advise use them instead of the hotel shop as the hotel shop is more than a rip off... You can get things from the outside shop like a Lilo for about 300% less than you would in the hotel... Don't let them fool you.

  • Service
    6.0

    Staff are excellent.. Always happy and smiling considering the amount they have to do for us and the amount of hours they do per day. They will do everything they possibly can to make sure you have the best holiday possible... One bartender in particular "Hatem" hes fantastic. Rooms are always clean and tidy for you and the room cleaners also leave you lovely little flowers on your pillows or a swan made from a towel.. Very nice. But the main ones are the entertainment! Like i said made our holiday! "Lenni, Lucy, Gyselle, Kevin, Nizar, Flo... And so many more... From all over the world, they all speak loads and loads of different languages between them.. They work just as hard as anyone else there. And the amount they do for everyone is incredible. Entertain from 9am with their magic radio where the games begin right through until 6pm with a break for lunch in between. Then in the evening they put on a show at the hotels own amphitheatre which is both hilarious and entertaining with great dancing and comedy. After that, down at the "captains bar" they continue with live music or crazy dancing or a beach party or a pool party and plenty more depending on the day... Then from 00.00-0200 if your still able to carry on the hotel has its own "night line" (night club) with a great DJ and more dancing. Surprisingly enough i can still go on.. If you would like a night cap and maybe one last snack then you can always go down to the wunderbar which is a 24hour bar located by the reception or seating area outside where the waiters are more than happy to bring you your drinks. So to sum up... All staff are great.

    The buffets restaurant and many choices and different themed nights.. The white night was the best. There were busy times but I you could always find a table and the waiters were quickly there to clean and rest the table and get you some drinks. foods of the world snack bar was perfect at lunch time .. Lots of fast food.. Chicken, burgers, friend goujons.. Difference fish very day, pastas, pizzas and a salad bar.There are always fantastic displays of puddings and cakes but we don't really try any of them.. Always too full! We only went to the Italian so can't comment on the others. the food was very good but don't expect lots of pastas and pizzas. Nice to be served for one night and as it was my husbands birthday they presented him with a beautiful birthday cake.

    Simply the best. The animation team were amazing. To mention just a few Nizar//Lucy/Flo/Lennie... Our sons 19/20 yr olds joined in all the games and became avid Boccia players with Lucy! Shuffle board players with Nizar and volleyball and football with Lennie and Flo! The 12 o'clock pool games was fun to watch.. The boys of course joined in but my husband and I were happy to watch. The team work really hard in the heat but are always smiling. Nizar also kept us entertained for hours showing us his magic tricks. Lucy is the only English girl there but she is really lovely and we all became great friends. The animation team and dancers only put on two shows while we were there but they were brilliant the dancers are really good and again to mention the ones we got to know Kris (with his perfect smile) Sam , JD, Vinnie and the other two girls were also lovely. After the show everyone and that includes the animation team and entertainers move to the Captains bar where dancing continues.. And what was great to see was how passionate the dancers were still enjoying themselves dancing with the guests. There were two evening where professionals were brought in but to be honest I preferred watching the hotel entertainers. There were lots of water sports on offer but other that one so nhaving a go at water ski-ing.. And we all went on the banana boat we didn't really get involved.

    Booked two rooms and asked for pool view which we got. Only issue was asked for one double bed and one twin but they both had double beds. It was a huge problem as the beds where Queen size. I'm sure they would have moved my sons had we asked but we were right next to each other so just made do. We had nice terraces over looking the relax pool. There are tea and coffee making facilities and a grudge stocked with water coke and orange. Which they do refresh during the week. The air conditioning worked but it wasn't very cold. We had a lovely cleaning lady who chatting to us each day. We tipped her at the start of the holiday and at the end.
