A real 5 star hotel ! The staff make this hotel very special, great service from every staff member from porter to General Manager. We were made to feel so welcome and this was the same for the whole of our 10 days stay. Beautiful calm interior, lovely spacious public areas, very comfortable seating in lounge bar. Spa area and the treatments were first class and not expensive given the quality. Our Room was spacious and the bed in particular was the most comfortable ever encountered in a Tunisian hotel . The Bathroom with dressing area was well fitted and of top quality and unlike many Tunisian hotels everything worked as it should. The breakfast buffet was something to marvel over, with the widest possible choice of food, from Tunisian hot and cold dishes to eggs or crepes freshly prepared to order, fresh fruit, savoury or sweet options and fresh homemade breads and croissants. It was the high spot of the day for us . Food was available in the bar all day , plenty of choice with speciality evenings making for a nice change. The Mediterranean restaurant was excellent with a great menu and the chef was happy to cook something special if asked. We had great grilled fish and salad and the waiter exhibited great skill when he took it off the bone for my wife. We also tried the Chinese Restaurant and were equally impressed. The Tunisian restaurant and menu looked nice but we decided to leave this until our next visit planned for September

Loved this hotel
I loved this hotel. I was there for six days. It is beautiful from the lobby, to the rooms and to the outdoors including the pool. My room was very comfortable with a balcony overlooking the pool and with a view to the beach beyond. The bathroom had a “dressing room” area with plenty of drawers and space for clothes. Service was impeccable and friendly. It is away from the Medina but I was taking mostly day trips out of Tunis so this worked for me. But could be a bit far for those who want to be in the heart of Tunis.

We had a simply wonderful stay. The staff are attentive and professional at all times. The lady at the breakfast reception was such a happy and friendly individual it made you want to have a good day! We were made to feel welcome upon arrival and given details of what was on offer. We arrived very late and the hotel provided a small meal for us. It is these types of gestures that go a very long way! Breakfast Is a must - a real treat. The crepes were wonderful- made to order- and the freshly squeezed orange juice was divine. We would definitely return here.
