Hotel Thalassa Sousse  


Not content with its smart interiors and peachy beachfront location, this place has just knocked up a whopping 13-slide waterpark.

A big, bright waterpark is the star of this place. It’s packed with all the twisters, black holes and hair-raising slides you could want, while smaller children get their own slides. There’s a private beach here too.

The hotel is in a secluded with gardens filled with palm trees and bougainvillea, and terraces that make the most of the views. Shops and restaurants are a 5-minute drive away. And it’s about a 10-minute drive to Sousse.

We arrived for a 14 day stay and initially was pleased... The pools were never cleaned and the kids splash pool had poo init and on the slides. The plates and cutlery were never clean but I found the food ok... At breakfast in the English restaurant there was ants in the carrot and again upstairs in the pizza pasta area of the restaurant. The hotel accommodates 1400 people and there's no where near enough staff to cover the demand!! The hotel also let's members of public in for a daily price which is shocking for an all inclusive and the amount of people. The public aren't allowed in the pools only the slides so expect grown men and women without child in the baby splash pool making nuisances of themselves making it impossible for the children to play... To be honest I thought tunisia was lovely and would go again but you can't pay me to stay here again!!!!!! Hayley Southampton More



we arrived at 9pm and my grandsons bed was not delivered to our room until 1120pm, this should have been ready on our arrival ( he is 5 ) My daughter was harassed constantly by the waiters and bar staff and when she declined leaving the hotel with them for a drink, they then refused to serve us and made it very awkward to have a drink in the bar. We decided because of this to go to the American bar which is also the Cocktail bar. We asked for 2 cocktails and were screamed at by the bar man that we could have one but not to ask for another because he was too busy. In general the senior staff were extremely rude, they were completely unhelpful. Bottled water was suppose to be readily available but often we were told they had ran out or we would have to get from another bar area. Ahmed in the main restaurant was fantastic and actually made our 10 days bearable. We tipped from day one as advised to do but it seems that this only works if they also get a date with your daughter !!! The animation team were great, only complaint would be that music was mostly foreign so nothing for the English to join in with and the entertainment started way too late with the infants disco not starting until 830pm. Food was average and what you expect but it was always cold and no choice at all for children my grandson lived on pizza for 9 days and we were served raw burgers one evening, took photos and complained to the Katie the rep but again nothing was done about it. There was one waiter in the English restaurant who was extremely rude if you asked for anything and the tables floors etc were filthy, thats the only way it can be described. Our maid was fabulous and kept our room lovely and clean a plus for us, as lots of other people were being moved room and complaining to the Thomson reps. I made an official complaint over a week ago to Katie the rep but as yet the only response I have had was today saying her systems are very slow!!!!! Useless .she was not helpful at all. Pools were not cleaned , I had a raging throat infection from day 2 and am sure this was from the dirty pool.. the pool area in general was filthy and did not in 9 days see a single table or sunbed cleaned I would never again waste my hard earned £2700 on 10 days here .... Well actually 9 days as our flight times were changed but to be honest thank goodness they were because 9 days here was plenty !!!!!More

Fantastic holiday 😄 party of 6 got back this morning from a 2 week stay. I read some reviews and really can't see what some people won't when in a different country, food was fab drinks were not watered down as I went back to room many of night a bit peed. Entertainment was fantastic they all worked hard as all the staff did on our 2 week stay. The rep Katie and the public relations girl were so lovely came round and took time to sit and have a chat with us many of times. After many of years if going to turkey I will be going back to this hotel More

Just returned from our holiday, weather was amazing, did reach temperature of 47 degrees one day and it was extremely hot but there are plenty of pools to jump in. Water park was really great, pools were lovely, food was ok butas it was so busy we had to wait a while when it ran out for them to bring more. Entertainment team were very freindly and made you feel welcome, they tried to involve everyone but weren't too pushy like in some hotels I have been to. Our room was always very clean and housemaids were lovely, ours was always smiling, very freindly. Only downside was broken glass and spillages not cleaned up in dining room, we witnessed waiters dropping glasses and after an hour the glass was still on the floor, and food and drink wasnt cleaned up off the floor when dropped till after service. Also the bar staff were always arguing with each other in front of customers which I thought was very un professional, also at busy times the more senior staff didn't chip in and help out which I thought was bad. Overall though a lovely holiday, lovely weather and lovely pools. The beach was great, and the sea was really warm and clear. A lot of hassle on the beach from sellers though and didn't seem to take no for an answer from me, they would only move away when my husband said no. Just 1 tip, wear shoes on beach the sand is very very hot lolMore

Ok to all those people who moan about this hotel, you should pay for 5* and go to a 5 * hotel if that's what you want. For the normal people who don't want to spend thousands of pounds but want a nice hotel, somewhere great for the kids, nice food, friendly staff, and very clean but basic hotel rooms ( it's a place to sleep after all ) then this hotel and splash park is all you will need. Tip the pool waiters a few denar a day and they will wait on you with drinks all day, med was our pool waiter and was always cheerful and happy, and anise was the waiter in the American bar he always served you drinks even when the bar was crowded and busy. The only thing negative I would say and it's very slight, hiring of the beach towels is 20 denar each but that's just a deposit which you get back unfortunately they do tend to get pinched, which isn't the fault of the staff but probably tight holiday makers who don't want to lose a few quid. overall we went as a group of 7 four adults 2 teenagers and a little boy aged 5 and had a wonderful, fun and relaxing holiday I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends and family.
