Hotel Dessole Abou Sofiane  


This All Inclusive hotel comes with a stash of things to do, and is just footsteps from a sandy beach. There's a big pool, too, and a restaurant that lines up international favourites as well as local dishes.

With its Moorish touches, this beachfront hotel certainly makes a good first impression. Step into the lobby and you’ll be greeted by a big round room edged with white lattice-work walls and arches. Look upwards, and a huge domed ceiling, complete with an epic chandelier, stands above you.

The bedrooms are a little less grand, but they’re comfy nonetheless. They’ve been decorated in a simple cream-and-peach colour scheme, and come with pale-wood furniture and satellite TVs. The patterned blue and terracotta tiles in the bathrooms, meanwhile, give a nod to tradition.

Mature palms tower above landscaped lawns dotted with straw parasols and over on the terrace there’s the pool. It’s a spacious rectangular affair with sunbeds scattered around it.

There’s plenty going on in the way of activities, too. There’s basketball, tennis and archery, plus, a daily programme of sports by the pool. Come evening time, attentions turn towards cabarets and discos.

Lastly there’s the dining scene. It’s a big buffet set-up with a menu of well-known favourites like pizza, pasta and salad. Themed evenings and barbecues on the restaurant's terrace are also on the menu, to keep things interesting.

Really bad value for money

Spent 7 nights at this hotel. Staff are rude and don't really treat asian people equally. Rooms are cleaned daily. However if you observe the cleaning you will be shocked. If your lucky enough to get a good cleaner well done. Very much runs on a tip basis. Food repetitive, but can't complain. Really busy as open buffet.More



After 16 visits to this hotel - we are still absolutely amazed at its friendly, clean and welcoming atmosphere year after year. We always find the staff to be fabulous and so helpful, and everyone seems geared to trying to make your holiday the best ever, whether there for 7 days or 14. The animation team are very good, and the evening entertainment is lovely and is always followed by a very lively evening disco. The food is super and bedrooms, beaches, and dining room are clean and tidy. For the price you pay you are forgiven for thinking you are going to be shown some "short cuts" at some point in your holiday but this isn't the case, its a fab value all inclusive holiday and always gives such a friendly welcome. Regulars return year after year to prove this. Lamjed the manager was a great advert for the hotel and always ensures he is available to see that your holiday is just as you would like, any problems are sorted swiftly. We always look forward to a return visit - see you again in November! - Regards Valerie and RichardMore

Family holiday

Just returned from a fabulous week at this fun hotel. Excellent value for families. Food varied and delicious. Rooms comfortable. Plenty of sunbeds, amenities, activities even at peak season. Tipping the staff with very few dinas allowed us to have a most relaxing stress free holiday. Out side of hotel we enjoyed several trips and adventures eg camel and horse riding, paragliding and many more activities. Only problem for me was the 45 degrees heatwave we endured for 3 days. Hoping to return again next half term holiday as the animators kept us entertained and made our family feel specialMore

Holiday aug 2014

Just returned from a week there.... with my hubby and our 2 year old. Major downside was the hotel desperately needs a refurb.... mainly bedroom and pool area. My daughter tripped at the pool and cut her leg... the tile was quite big and broken I told the life guard and showed where it was ..... it was still broken at the end of the week. ... someone WILL hurt themselves badly. ... 1st 2 days no beds at beach or pool because selfish people reserve both areas although its widely noticed that its not allowed! !! However the security at the beach removed towels for us to have space and were clearly not going to stand for people taking the mick!!! On a plus note the food is great and restaurants kept lovely. ... the staff are very good and we did have a lovely holiday and shall return to Tunisia More
