Reviewed 29 September 2014

Just got back after a week.we arrived after 10pm.it was very hot inside the lobby.after checking in we ware taken upstairs into our room on the third floor,the lift was not working,so we had to carry our baby in the pram and all our luggage up a dark staircase and corridors.room was very small but clean.when booking the holiday we requested cot bed for our 7 months old but we ware provided with a toddler bed!not suitable for our son!!next morning we wanted to sort things out,be moved downstairs and have age appropriate bed for the little one.managed to be moved on the ground floor but still no cot bed!
Food was very very basic and the same every day!reheated and served over and over again.no fridge or a cattle in rooms. All inclusive but couldn't get a coffee outside meal times.everything was a bother for waiting staff,noone smiled (apart from a guy that runs a little hotel shop and a head cleaning lady).
Room was clean and tidy every day but the bedding stunk!
2 nights before our departure hotel turned the aircon off!it was unbearable and impossible to sleep!baby was extremely uncomfortable at night not coping with the heat.they also drained the toddlers pool the day before we left.
On the last evening seating on our room terrace we discovered a waist pipe running just above gushing waist water out!that explained the horrible smell we had in that room!disgusting!!!
So so happy on our departure day to be finally going home!
Don't be fooled by 4 *!!customer service and hospitality really poor!!!
Quite far away from any shops and restaurants or any attractions.a bit of a walk to a beach as well.
Day in aqua land was probably our best one.time spent in this hotel was far from enjoyable!

this was our 6th visit to tunisia,we,ve stayed in many 4 star hotels but this hotel fell well short.when we got to our room.there was no fridge,no safe and the toilet was not working.i enquired about the fridge and safe,and was told i had to pay extra.15 dinars per week for the fridge and 5 dinars per day for the safe which was situated near the reception.In 4 star hotels this comes as a norm,plus the safe boxes are situated in your room.A chap turned up 30 mins later to fix the w/c,fiddled around for 10 mins and said he,ll come later to fix it.we waited until the next morning and demanded another room,which we got in the afternoon.The food was very limited for choice and basic.hot dishes were warm/cold and the friuts were warm.A toaster made an appearance 10 days into our stay.Around the pool area the music was constant and repetative and the noise went on until 11 at night every night,so if you had a room over seeing the pool ,no early nights.For this hotel to become a 4 star it needs a major overhaul,more staff and more choice of food for there paying guests.Will we stay here again?NEVER!

Room Tip: rooms at the poolside constant nosiy,rooms facing out ,no views at least you get a early night

just got back after 2 weeks , first the good points ,first class staff couldn't fault them especially Neufal the waiter and Ahmed and moomoo animation ,really nice, friendly and helpful . nice room overlooking the pool, nice pool area ... bad points even though ive mentioned the animation team there was no entertainment at night (except on Tuesday our last night ) I think it was because they were fed up of me complaining haa haa but sorry to say they needed a bit more practise ,well done to them anyway for trying . Lastly the food !!!! very poor , same thing everyday never hot. the chicken was always overcooked, at times you couldn't even cut it with a knife ... oh nearly forgot the beach !!! only about 5 sunbeds and no facilities at all for hotel guests . wont be going back !!!

Room Tip: ask for upstairs pool view
