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.

Fantastic Hotel

We have just returned from a wonderful week at this resort. The hotel staff are nothing less than wonderful. Everyone you meet will smile and say good morning or afternoon. Nothing is any trouble for them. Our breakfast waiter would get juice out and ready for us at the table whilst we were getting our food. The whole hotel is spotless at every time of day. The beach is also lovely and clean. You also have use of the Riviera which is next door. A word of warning would be the Thomas Cook excursions. We booked a total of 3, the Medina Ramble, the Tour to El Djem Kairouan and Monastir and the African dream. We were disappointed with all 3. The Medina ramble described as an opportunity to see the back streets of the Medina with a local guide and see the hidden streets was merely a tour to the fixed price shopping centre, the 2 stalls selling sportswear and a kiosk to purchase cigarettes. We were so disappointed we opted not to take the coach back and stay and explore ourselves and were really glad we did. Don't be put off by the reps telling you about the hassle you will get. As soon as we got off the "tour"route all of this stopped. We had a super afternoon seeing all the local back streets. The fish market was a particular treat. The tour to El Djem consisted of the coach parking up and us being told to be back in an hour. Whilst it was nice to be able to explore and photograph the Colosseum an insight into its history had been advertised. on the same trip where lunch was included this was served to us a restaurant that was under renovation and more than likely had this excursion not have been planned would have been closed. On the trip into Monastir we were also directed into the fixed price shop owed as part of the same group who own the Soulla Centre that you meet in Sousse on the Medina Ramble. Lastly the African dream was a nice chance to see the animal park but this is small and has a limited view of some of the animals. The local cuisine that is supplied as part of the package is served to you very quickly whilst the show is in full swing meaning that you feel you have to eat quickly rather than being able to enjoy the show at your leisure. The main course "Chicken in a pot" was dry and not very enjoyable. We have learnt the lesson to be brave and get ourselves to the places that we want to visit and avoid the ease of the excursions.More

Fantastic value

I stayed here with my daughter and granddaughter from the 2nd of November for a week. We read all the reviews prior to choosing this hotel...We found the hotel lovely, clean, comfortable with very happy and helpful staff. Yes, parts of the decor was a bit dated but it was clean. Shower holder was a bit loose but we managed, it didn't affect our holiday at all. Would definitely go back. More

Elaine E,

Wonderful staff

Just returned from a last minute winter break in Tunisia and was unsure about the hotel. First impressions on arrival was that it was probably ok but after a couple of days we were happy with the service we where getting. All the staff were absolutely brilliant and couldn't do enough for you. Have stayed in all-inclusives before(even though its not really our thing) and was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was,plenty of selection of both hot and cold food and the deserts were to die for.The rooms were out of date but they were kept spotlessly clean and our only complaint was the shower over the bath. On the day of leaving, some of the staff came round thanking us for our custom and wishing us a safe journey. This is something we have never come across before and was a nice ending to a very good holiday. We would recommend this hotel for a late winter holiday and we will more than likely go again.More

What a holiday

Just had a week here all inclusive from the 12 th to 19th November and what a week it was. Brilliant sunshine all week, fantastic food and very helpful staff, nothing was any bother for them. If you are into golf you have only 5 minutes walk to the nearest course or just keep on walking for a few minutes and end up at the port, plenty of shops and bars. Life was great, sunbathing, swimming in mid November, what more could you want. Fantastic hotel, clean rooms, good food, will definitely go back againMore

Brilliant week in fantastic hotel

Just came back today from a brilliant week. The hotel was clean and rooms spacious with large baths and toiletries and towels provided. The pool area very clean, and although outdoor pool cold, the inside pool was warm. Plenty of sun beds both on beach and by pool and these were put out for you by a very helpful lifeguard. The food was of a high standard, plentiful and fresh. The drinks were good and available from 10am to midnight at several bars. What made the holiday extra special was the untiring staff, from the cleaners right up to the accommodation manager. But special praise to the bar manager and to the brilliant animation team; Kiko and Emily plus all the others who kept us entertained day and evening. Good points; pool area and beach. Food and drinks. Beach towels provided. Helpful staff. Cleanliness of all public areas. Unlimited drinks. Not so good points; vegetarians not given much choice of 'protein'. Egg or cheese. But I filled up on soup, fruit and salad. And cakes of course! Worst point: Avoid the a la carte Italian restaurant. No Italian food in it!! Except if you a vegetarian in which case offered a bowl of pasta as main course with no sauce on it!! All in all well worth the money paid. Sad to be home and missing all friends made there!More
