The Thalassa Sousse laughs in the face of the ‘less is more’ theory. At this place, more is more. Especially when it comes to waterslides. Its rainbow-coloured waterpark – brand new for 2013 – counts black holes, twisters, freefalls and a couple of 100-metre-long hair-raisers among its army of slides. That’s not to mention the dinky chutes designed for younger kids that twist around the pirate-themed splash zone.
It goes all out on pools, too. A big lagoon-style pool is the main attraction, but the one next door to it – complete with a waterslide and two twisty chutes – is hot on its heels. There’s a big stretch of beach right on the doorstep, too, that’s armed with tons of loungers, a sea-view restaurant and a bar.
International chefs head up the kitchens in the hotel’s buffet and à la carte restaurants. And post-dinner entertainment is laid on in the 1000-seat amphitheatre, the flatscreen TV-equipped mojito bar, and the African-themed nightclub.

Onsite waterpark 1 May - 31 Oct
Our SplashWorld hotels offer up a break from the norm, in that each one grants you free entry to a first-rate waterpark. Better yet, you can ride the slides as often as you like. Some parks are within the grounds, others are an easy drive away. And while each one is different, the kind of rides you can expect include slides, Lazy Rivers and Wave Pools.
Just so you know the waterpark here is open from May-October and kids need to be at least 110cm tall to use the slides. The Aqua Tower is for little ones over 5 years, who must be supervised be an adult. Soft drinks are included in your all inclusive package at the snack bar here.

Great weeks holiday
I booked the Thalassa Sousse last minute with family ( 4 adults, 2 children aged 9 and 3 ) . On arrival the staff were very helpful and we had a very stress free check in. We were shown to our rooms which were very clean and spacious. They were cleaned every day and we were given clean towels each day too. The pool was lovely and the water park was an added bonus for us. There were slides for both of my children and even the adults !!!. The lifeguards were brilliant and really friendly. The pool staff were always there with drinks when you wanted one. The food was good and there was something for everyone. Lastly the animation team were really good, they worked very hard each day and always had something for the children to do from volley ball to dancing by the pool. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going as a family. I would definitely come back !More

Amazing, family friendly holiday!!!!
Well, wasn't sure what to expect in April however very surprised. Weather very hot all week,couple of cloudy mornings but quickly warmed up. Nights colder need jacket etc. Food basic but loved the pancakes. Amazing Animation team.. Sam, Campo, Marco, Crouch, Slim, Bob and all the gang kept us smiling and made us so welcome. That alone would bring us back to Thalassa Sousse, so a huge thank you to everyone! Waiters, bar staff, reception team, all so very friendly they just make the holiday. Reps easy to talk to and so happy to help. Rooms small and basic but got a cheap late deal so didn't really bother us. All of the slides were open which was a bonus, thanks Thallasa. Spa do an amazing massage, worth treating yourself. Work being carried out in readiness for Summer and as this hotel is open all year, they have to do it sometime. Would have been nice if the beach bar had been open but again low season. Hotel is situated just a short taxi ride from Sousse and the Madina (5 dinar approx) or same to Port el Kantoui for shopping, boat trips and fun fair. Please be careful near Madina if Tunisian men say they work in your hotel, this is scam to get you into their shop, just ignore and keep walking!! A fantastic week, thanks again Thalassa Sousse especially, Sam and the very funny Campo XxxMore

Visiting this resort as a last minute change of venue could not have been more pleasing, Positives From the very first day we arrived the service was exceptional the staff could not have done more to make it a enjoyable holiday. The holiday rep (Craig) even accompanied us back to the airport. The animation team were outstanding and kept the family entertained during the stay with some fantastic shows during the evenings. Four individuals who were absolutely fantastic with everything when it came to meeting our needs. Omer - Animation team manager Farook - restaurant manager Harrison Richards - Guest Relations Craig - First Choice Holiday Rep Negative Only downside is that rooms are very basic Would definitely recommend to anybody thinking about visiting TunisiaMore
