The hotel is situated in front of the sea, has a nice swimming pool and the restaurant's food is just fine to eat. It is not the best food you can find but there is as much as you want and a lot of variety. You will probably love the home made pancakes with the melted chocolate :) The room... More

Stayed here with my husband for 6 nights. We stayed here as we had business to attend to in Tunis and hotels there are generally quite expensive and this hotel is approx 20 minute taxi ride away and cheap. Arriving at the hotel we quickly realised that it is situated in the middle if nowhere with literally nothing around. The... More

I have just returned from an excellent stay at Hotel Acqua Viva. The hotel staff were very helpful, chatty, and many were fluent in basic English which was useful (we spoke only limited French.) The room was basic, but adequate. The hotel facilities were good: an outdoor pool, water slide (unsure if operational), indoor pool, and bar/social room with pool... More

Basically, I do not understood what this hotel can be used for. It is located in the middle of nowhere. To visit anything you need a taxi (easily found near the hotel for inflated price).
