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.

Great Hotel

There is not enough words to say about this hotel, we have been 10 times over the last 7 years, the people make this hotel a joy to stay in. The rooms are clean, the public area's are clean, the pool both indoors and out are fantastic. We have read some of the reviews, all I can say to those who think it is the worst hotel that they have stayed in are to my mind "you cannot please everyone". Perhaps they are use to staying in 5* plus, in which case use your money elsewhere. We love this hotel, the people are lovely, the food is edible and it is right on the beach. The port is very close by, just a short taxi ride away, although you could walk it, if it wasn't so hot. All in all Tunisia is a very nice county to visit, enjoy. With recent activities I can understand people are afraid, I dearly hope that this will be a "one off" as the Tunisian people do not deserve to loose their jobs, having worked hard for many years, but I do understand peoples worries.More

first of all i want to say myself and fiancee love tunisia and WILL be back,we were there on that fatefull day.on that day i have to say the manager and staff were absolutly fantastic.they had a lot to deal with and done it very well,they are a credit to the tunisian people.ok onto the hotel and we arrived on the 14/6/15 for 14 nights.the rooms are good but on the third day my watch got stole off the dressing was my fault as i should have used the safe in the the maid was not aloud in our room for a week,but there is more than the maid goes in your room as there a lady goes around collecting towels aswell.when i complained about my watch going missing the lady told me that the maid had worked there for 20 odd years and denied taking the watch,i was offered for them to contact the police but i refused to get the police involved,this has not put us off coming to this hotel.Apart from the last few days of our holiday we had an absolute fantastic time.the food was great and always something nice to pick from and there is loads of diffrent dishes to choose from.most of the staff are very nice and very hardworking.I hope that people will not be put off coming back to tunisia as it is a lovely country and the people are so nice,we must stick together........Campbell and Collette room 210More


Great holiday!

We stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks, we loved it! Staff were so friendly and the animation team made our holiday. Special thanks must go to Suzy, mimi, mario, Bob, will, toto and mimo. The rooms were basic but clean and tidy. Fresh towels every day and the maid that cleaned our room (150) was so very lovely! Always smiling!! Food was okay I would say it's the only thing that could do with a little improvement- although if you are not fussy you will get by no bother (like we did) Overall we loved our holiday! Our little girl loved her holiday and that's what it's all about. Would love to return here!More


Worst hotel in Tunisia....

We didnt book this hotel was put their cause Thomas Cook wasnt using the hotel we booked with. The only good thing was the food, every thing else was terrible, the room was dirty, Entertainment was make your own, the staff was so unpleasent a smile would have been nice, the only person who gave you a smile was the man who changed your money. I would never return to this hotel ever. I couldnt wait to return home which is not like me at all as I love my holidays.We did meet a couple of nice people there which made it pleasent for us.More
