This is the second time we have been to this hotel, something we don't normally do. Not a lot has changed since the last visit some 4 years ago apart from the outside with two new bar areas, one outside the reception and one on the beach. The rooms are ok but the bathroom needs updating as do the corridors.

We wanted a cheap week away in the sunshine, a beach on the doorstep; a room with a safe, fridge and aircon that worked; clean sheets and towels; a reasonable choice of food and alcohol of a good standard; hard working staff who were not always expecting a tip - we got it all!

However we didn't want rude, obnoxious Russians but we got them. All in all if you travel without too many expectations you may be pleasantly surprised.

One big tip - spend your dinar before you get to the airport - they don't accept them in duty free or onboard the plane, only the little cafes where there is little choice (you can pay with euros or pounds otherwise). The porters at the hotel often have English pound coins which they want to change into dinar - worth asking.

If you want a better standard, pay more money (not always guaranteed) and don't go to Tunisia. This hotel is old, a bit shabby round the edges but its heart is in the right place.
