The rooms are a good size with plenty of cupboard and drawer space, a table and comfortable chair and a bathroom with separate toilet. A hairdryer is provided, as are the usual toiletries and shower cap. I had a problem with the shower in the first room I was given but was moved and had no further trouble. There is even a trouser press in the room, together with a fridge/mini bar (unstocked). Although the info provided in the room says you can hire a safe, my room was complete with a safety deposit box which you could lock digitally. The balcony had a wooden table and two chairs.
The food is quite good and you’ll never go hungry and even the toaster at breakfast usually works. For those on H/B the cost of drinks is quite expensive, 3 dinar for a coffee and 14 dinar for a gin or vodka and tonic (local brands) or more for imported. Much to my surprise they didn’t have fresh orange juice and the ‘squash’ was 3 dinar, though you could get freshly squeezed orange almost anywhere for between 2.5/3.5 dinars.
You do not have a dedicated table in the restaurant which means you don’t have your own waiter, so unless you are having drinks with your meal there is no need to tip. Staff are pleasant but not particularly friendly though my little chamber maid was lovely.
Smoking is only allowed in the 2 bars, one of which is only open in the evenings and the other which invariably has the TV on full blast with either football or pop which appears to be more for the locals than the paying guests.
There was no actual entertainment but on a few evenings there was music in one of the bars. With few guests the hotel lacked atmosphere but unfortunately this seems to be true of many places in Tunisia at present, though I heard that a couple of other hotels were fuller.
The whole hotel is in dire need of refurbishment but is kept clean, as are the grounds, which go right down to the beach. The toilets always smelled fresh and had adequate supplies of toilet paper, soap and paper towels as well as the usual air hand-dryer
To sum up, I wouldn’t mind staying there again though it wouldn’t be my first choice.
Both breakfast and dinner. Pool area very nice and so is the beach.
The location is very good as in the centre. Very near to Port El Kantou and so is to the Centre of Sousse.
