Hotel Thalassa Sousse  

This smart-looking hotel has a handful of pools, plus a beach on the doorstep.

This hotel is surrounded by acres of greenery, dotted with whitewashed buildings. Inside things are just as smart, with a minimalist vibe. In the lobby squared-off slate grey armchairs nuzzle floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The bedrooms also looks the part, dressed in candy stripes and splashes of fuchsia.

The best thing about this place, though, are the pools. There are four of them scattered throughout the grounds. The main pool is so big it could be mistaken for a lagoon, especially with its palm tree island. Next to it you have a waterslide and two twisty chutes. Smaller children have their own pool, and there’s an adults-only number down by the beach.

On the food front, the main restaurant has a sleek monochrome look, with high-back chairs and funky spot-lighting. It offers up an international buffet, but during the summer you can also try one of the à la carte restaurants.

As for where you’ll find it, the hotel fronts a great stretch of sand. The centre of Sousse is only five minutes away by taxi, but you’ve also got restaurants and bars closer to home.

Lovely Hotel

We went away for a 2 weeks all inclusive break to Thalassa Sousse. The hotel was nice a welcoming when we arrived. We had a room near the pool which was lovely, as we could just come and go to the pool and room. The food was a bit samey each night in the main restuarant. On our night before last the English restaurant opened and the food here was amazing. The Italian restaurant was good too. Was definitely plenty of different snacks during the day :) The pools and slides were good fun. Would definitely go back again.More

ROOMS The rooms were nice & we had a fantastic bungalow right by the water slides, the downside was the Ants they were everywhere in the room massive problem, so was mosquitoes in the room. MAID SERVICE One day we forgot to leave a tip for the room cleaners which meant the room didn't get cleaned from then onwards!!!!!! Which meant we kept having to go to reception to request clean towels toilet roll etc STAFF Firstly the animation team we weren't impressed we found some of the male members were more interested in eyeing up teenage girls that helping my children plus they do not leave you alone when all you want to do is lay on your sun bed Waiters Waiters in the buffet restaurant AMAZING always friendly & helpful (except I wasn't impressed with one where he said if we paid him he would always reserve us a table !!!) Pool bar waiters all they are bothered about is tips Lifeguards were amazing they were happy to sort out your parasols & really friendly I do wonder about their life saving qualifications as there was an instance on the beach where a woman got tangled in some kind of netting & the life guard just stood on the beach watching whilst holiday makers went into the sea to help her POOLS pools & water slides were brilliant FOOD Food was good but the only snacks were at 3pm which seemed to be left over breads from breakfast ALA CARTE RESTAURANTS The lebonese restaurant was lovely friendly warm staff & delicious food The beach bar we preferred to go there for lunch but we ended up complaining to the rep as when visitors came to use the water park we were shoved into a tiny corner & 5 of us were meant to sit at a table made for 2 !!!!! The beach was lovely, you get used to the beach sellers & can have a bit of banter with them. in Tunisia they are only allowed to walk along the shore line & so you don't get pestered too much We took a taxi to the medina the taxi driver was so amazing he gave us lots of tips to survive so to speak Overall we had an amazing holiday but that was down to the watersides & what we made of the holiday I do think this hotel has a lot of improvements to be made. When we stayed first choice had it rated as a 4 star hotel it was never 4 star. I wouldn't call the hotel amazing just averageMore

Great holiday

After the comments we read on here about this hotel we were pleasently surprised how good this hotel was. When we first arrived we had drinks bought to us and we're well catered for. The rooms were very clean and well kept. We had a garden view which was nice and quiet. The pools and grounds were the best part of the hotel it was set out over a large area and maintained well. We stayed by the quieter pool which was right next to the beach. The beach was our main attractment and made our holiday. The pools were supervised by lifeguards who were very friendly and made you feel welcome. The water slides were amazing, all that needs to be said about those. The food was a bit of a let down however we both found something each night. Pizzas made fresh and pancakes in the morning were nice. Overall we would visit again without hesitation. Don't be put off by the negative reviews.More
