The good points first. A nice room (831) on 8th floor overlooking the sea, with comfortable beds and a constant supply of hot water. The maid was friendly and the bedding was changed regularly.
All the staff were friendly but there was a general lack of direction from the top down.
Drinks ordered often failed to arrive, cutlery missing in dining room and toilet paper from toilets. Broken lock on wardrobe which was meant to act as safe, door key wouldn't work in first room.
Food limited in choice, particularly deserts, but just about acceptable and soup excellent.
No entertainment though this was to be expected as there were hardly any guests.
The shop in the hotel was closed and empty but workmen appeared there from time to time.
It does pain me to report the problems and I hope they can be fixed but I couldn't in all honesty recommend this hotel at the present time.
Stuck in the 80s with the repair budget, air con and electrics tripped out every night woke up roasting!!
Food consisted of salad, stews, with poor quality meats and mouldy fruit only good thing lost plenty of weight.
Road outside hotel unpassable that much traffic so no beach unless you are very brave or very stupid!!
Lots of locals use hotel not problem some a bit leery, only saving grace are the staff very helpful freindly at a cost tip tip tip.
So if airtours offer to upgrade you tell em to ******** we walked to royal salem 20 times cleaner and no road which only made us feel worse.

The cleanliness in the hotel is terrible, bedsheets all stained and towels not clean! All the bathrooms are rusty and hardly any lights in the toilets and to top it all the toilet paper rolls are placed on the floor and even bad smells coming out from the toilet due to poor drainage system. The curtains for sure need to be changed and most of the furniture is broken. The air condition does not work, not even in the reception area.
As regards the food it was terrible, we never eat at the hotel, had to go and eat in restaurants outside the hotel. As regards the staff they were not friendly at all, all bad tempered including the chef and porters!!!!
We also never used the pools and sauna as these were dirty too. This hotel made our holiday a nightmare!!!!!
Overall this hotel has a very good potential due to its facilities and location, but it is stuck in the 80's and since then there was no maintenance at all. For sure it shouldn't be rated as a 4 star hotel.

Entertainers were fantastic, they were hilarious and got people involved. They even went clubbing after and chatted to guests. Made great friends with them (Hi Rico and Hamdi see you in August I'll mail you before I'm over, KEEP THAT BEER COLD FOR ME lol)
Nothing else I can say really but I would definitely recommend.

The area around the hotel was a little daunting at first but the shop keepers were not too bad once you realised the meant you no harm but were just very enthusiastic.
The beach was not too dirty mainly cigarette ends and people seemed to be doing their best to tidy their various areas.
All in all a very enjoyable stay will be returning again next year.

Eventually we were moved to another cleaner room.
Hard to lie in with noise from hotel corridors.
Food was awful. Buffet style with many unidentifiable dishes of mush. Some other guests seemed intent on stashing supplies of (bruised) fruit leaving none for others. I actually cried at dinner one evening.
Beach cafe attached to hotel did fantastic crepes - which we lived on all week.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all. If anybody was travelling to Tunisia I would suggest they try 5*.

Some tip if you visit this hotel take some towels with you, you might have to use the same towel for the entire holiday.
(If you would need some facts of what i`m saying i have some images that i`ve taken along the stay.

The staff are amazingly friendly and welcoming and the hotel is clean and highly rated. Yes outside the hotel grounds is daunting but again, the people are friendly. They certainly mean no harm or offense, any open minded person would realise that.
I would highly recommend both the hotel complex and sousse itself to anyone.
My only piece of advise would be not to judge the resort until the end of the holiday
A couple of other tips would be to walk along the raod (about 1 mile) towards Port El Kantoui and you will come across and amazing ice-cream parlour. Every flavour under the sun.....hmmmm. There is also a set back bowling alley that will put uk bowling to shame!!
Go and enjoy!!
