Great Hotel, Great Location, Excellent Food, Superb Staff
We stayed here in October 2014 on a Thompson all inclusive.Had a standard room with bunkbeds for our 2 children. Room was a little tired - for genuine 4 star would recommend going for a superior room. Location was perfect - lovely pool area and beach was 50 yards away. Food was superb. Huge selection to cater for every possible taste for breakfast. Supper buffet was sufficiently varied each night. The staff and supervisors paid great attention to ensuring everything was perfectly presented in the restaurant. One trip to the a la carte restaurant was included and have to say the food was a little disappointing - only choice was between a lamb or chicken tagine. Staff were very friendly and eager to please though reception staff could be a little frosty on occasion. Full marks to the animation team (Maro, Mici, Max, Sable) who put on a mini disco every night for the children followed by a live show for the adults to include dancing and comedy. In addition they put on activities throughout the day. They always went the extra mile to engage with the children and adult guests. They really were excellent. Beach was really good - security team ensured there was minimal hassle from beach sellers. Range of reasonably priced water sports available including jet skiing and parascending. Met a number of people who had been coming back to this hotel year after year.
Sousse Medina is a short taxi drive away. Excellent security on hotel complex ensuring only legitimate vehicles permitted on site. Popular with Russians and Germans as well as Brits. Would have no hesitation returning.More

A nice pleasant facility .
All things considered this is a nice , clean , fun , cheap resort .
My daughter and I stayed here in July of this year . I would recommended the Tour Khalef to anyone .
You have to have realistic expectations . For the price of this holiday its well worth it .
The staff were really good . Although I think they go that extra mile for a small tip . and I do mean small . the equivalent of 50p goes a long way .
The food is of a decent standard , although it doesn't vary much from the selection on offer ( which is quite vast to be fair) . A good mixture of sea food , different meats , vegetables and deserts .
The hotel is ideally located to get around the city and country even .
The bazaar is huge , there are loads of bargains to be had .
The colosseum in El Jem and the ancient city of Carthage are both breathtakingly amazing . Make sure you visit them . They will surely be the highlight of your trip . All in all a great value resort in a country with lots to do . More

Better than the marhaba palace
Even though i did not choose to stay at this hotel as i had booked the marharba palace we had a great time the food was far superior to the marhaba palace and the decor much nicer. The staff except our maid were great from the animation team to the waiters i could not fault them i never found i was expected to leave at tip to get great service with anyone except the maid i would highly recommend this hotel as a family friendly hotel with a great kids club which was vital for us. Having already stayed at the sister hotels in the past i knew we would be in for a great holiday and my daughter can't wait to return alot of people had problems with other nationalities that stay here but i have to say i did remind a few they were pushing in line ahead of the kids and they always apologised and stepped back and waited their turn and i was never treated any different as a brit than other nation staying here. Apart from the usual issue of the food becoming repetitive after a while there was always something to eat and in a hotel of this size you cannot expect to have the menu changed more often it would not happen at home so why complain about it where you are paying half the price of home. Lovely food great weather lovely hotel everything it advertised and more unlike my previous hotel. The only downside is i still have the chocolate song buzzing in my headMore

we visited in september 2013. the hotel is clean and staff were friendly. The surrounding area is very dirty and there isn't much to do, local men were very pervy and disrespectful towards women. the hotel was good value for money but buffet was very limited and there was flies on the food. Overall the hotel is good value for money however we will not be returning to this hotel or tunisia in general!More

Overall enjoyable and pleasant stay
We were pleasantly surprised on arrival. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful with a bit of dinar tipping going a long way. Very hard working staff and always smiling. Food choice was extensive plenty of choice meaning something different to eat every day. Plenty of fresh fruit and refreshing smoothies. Our only criticism is that the British are given a different colour wrist band from all other countries which immediately singles us out and we noticed such as the French were treated as priority by the waiters as if they were royalty. However we couldn't grumble service was overall better than many other places we have ever been. Resort is very clean, corridors a bit dated but facilities very good, pool area clean, beach area beautiful soft and clean sand. Resort shop handy but better and cheaper to venture off resort. Biggest disappointment was the spa visited several times to book without success: poorly staffed and the only place we can quite honestly say the staff were rude and ignorant, very poor.
A variety of people staying in the hotel, some who were extremely rude and will push in wherever who have been mentioned in other reviews. plenty of activities if you wish to participate. The Thomson rep was helpful but we also found smiley mileys trips good value and certainly better organised than the Thomson ones. Be aware most of the Thomson trips don't include the cost of taxis to and from departure points but they are pretty cheap though.
Make time to venture outside of the resort but mind the street vendors they can be pretty pushy and lead you somewhere you would rather not be- monastir was the worse and we felt quite vulnerable a guided trip would be recommended. El Jem was good, the short 2hr catamaran trip was better value than the 4hr one. Quad bikes good but pick up point wasn't quite where we were told by our rep but luckily someone going by helped us out. Smiley Miley pirate trip is good value too with fresh food and lively entertainment. All in all a good holiday with excellent weather to top it off!More
