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.

Honest Review

We stayed here October 2013 for a week.. The hotel itself is set in a nice location, beach is massive never any problems getting sun loungers at the pool or the beach. The staff very good, give the odd tip and they will look after you. Food was ok nothing spectacular but above average. We stayed for a week any longer it would of maybe became repetitive. Rooms were nice, little dated maybe. Always kept very clean. Free WiFi in lobby area was good. Over all a good hotel friendly staff and would go back.More

Waste of money

What a waste of money! Hotel itself looks nice and is kept clean. Food awful! Breakfast not worth getting up for, lunch at the snack bar the same every single day. main swimming pool (only outdoor pool) tiny, not big enough for the size of the hotel. Staff awful! ate out most evenings and i really dont think you should have to do this when paying for an all inclusive hotel. Rooms very basic and very small. so small the hotel had even put the bedroom furniture out on the balcony to allow room for the additional bed in my room! so couldnt use the balcony at all. hotel a little dated and reception staff not helpful. visited in peak season so did expect things to be a littlier busier than usual but expected extra staff rather than just one person serving on the bar etc, wont return, disappointed as this wasnt a cheap holiday and expected more. have stayed in hotels in tunisia for the past few years and this is one of the worstMore

Excellent Hotel and fantastic value for money

We have been to the Abou Sofiane twice now and are considering returning in 2015. The flight is just over 2hr 30mins from Gatwick and the transfer is about 45mins. On arrival the staff are welcoming and you are in your room in no time. the rooms are quite dated and need refurbishing, but are clean and tidy. The grounds are extensive with a large enough pool to accomodate all the guests, sun loungers with mattresses and free beach towels which are changed every other day. As you walk down to the stunning beach, you pass the pool bar, football pitch, tennis courts, beach volleyball court and the massage area. The sun loungers on the beach are also free and have mattresses and the beach bar serves drinks all day with burgers, chips etc at lunch. The food in the main restaurant is good, although is wasn't as good this year as it was in 2014, but there is plenty of it and a wide choice. There is also an Italian restaurant and a Tunisian restaurant on site, which you get one free meal in each per week. The outside seating area at night is very pleasant and beats sitting round the pool watching evening entertainment sitting on sun loungers. The Animation team are brilliant, don't stop working and always have smiles on their faces. As stated above we are thinking about going to the Abou Sofiane again in 2015, the only way we might go somewhere else is if we can persuade our 16 year old daughter to go somewhere new!!!More
