This hotel’s beachside setting is complemented by a big pool and a choice of places to eat.
White sands and blue water spool the coast just outside this hotel, so the sea views are first-class. About a 5-minute cab ride will get you to the heart of Mahdia, and there are shops and restaurants even closer.
There’s a spacious main pool. And, as well as a buffet, you’ll find a Tunisian à la carte and an Italian trattoria close to the sand. Activities range from aerobics to volleyball.
For breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sample dishes being prepared on the on the spot cooking stations, right in front of your very eyes. Enjoy the themed buffets held 3 times a week in summer, and twice a week in winter.
Rejuvenate and invigorate your mind and body with the many luxuries offered at the spa. Arrange a massage, relax in the Turkish bath, turn up the heat in the sauna, or take a dip in the indoor saltwater pool, heated in winter. Pamper yourself at the beauty salon and choose from a variety of services.
Just returned from a week long stay at this hotel and if relaxation is what you're after then this is perfect! The bus transfer time is a bit of a pain and some of the sights of poverty are eye opening but it's worth it for the location-beautiful beach and crystal clear sea where the sound of waves crashing echoes around the grounds of the hotel. We arrived at 1am and were offered something to eat and drink which was greatly appreciated and felt very welcome from the start.
Our room was on the top floor with a sea/pool view and was really lovely. Housekeeping and all the cleaning staff around the hotel do a fantastic job. The main restaurant was light and airy and the choice of food catered for everyone. We throughly enjoyed every meal.
The pool is lovely and the whole area is very clean. The bar is open from 10am and the staff are very friendly. There was a great atmosphere during the day with the animation team playing music and having fun with the guests, however, there were one or two of the team who seemed to take it personally if you preferred not to get involved and it made us feel uncomfortable at times. The evening entertainment is also conducted by the animation team and leaves a lot to be desired! Luckily the terrace bar is a lovely setting for evening drinks and with a deck of cards to hand we enjoyed many a night up there. Again the bar staff are lovely and know what your drink is despite serving hundreds of guests!
Tipping the staff is the key to a truly relaxing stay here-for the equivalent of a few pounds it's well worth it and the level of service is excellent once you have done this.
If the evening entertainment had been better and more varied I would have given this hotel an 'excellent' rating as it truly deserves it otherwise.

Perfect for relaxing
Great hotel, very clean, big rooms and the food was excellent. Buffet style that provided a wide choice including traditional Tunisian food and staples of pasta, meat, salad etc. only thing against is that there isn't much to do in the evening and you can't walk on the beach or outside the hotel at night. There was an evening show that started at 9.30pm, would have been good to start a little earlier. That said our holiday overall was fantastic.More

First holiday abroad in 11 years was not sure what to expect, listening to friends got us a bit concerned about going to Tunisia but when we arrived at the hotel we were pleasantly surprised. All the hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout the week. Food and drinks were fantastic with plenty of choice for all, read in reviews about eating in the outside bar saying about flies, only saw one or two the whole week. Could not fault the service. Rooms were exceptional. What really made our holiday were the animation team, they were all exceptionally talented, entertaining and friendly. We would like to give a big mention about David in the animation team, never met such a nice and friendly person who made our holiday, who went out of his way to make it perfect. Amazing place would go back every year but want to see the world, highly recommended you would not be disappointed.More
