Huge pools, a waterpark, and a white-sand beach on the doorstep – this all-action family hotel has plenty to keep you busy.
This place has a first-class setting – right next door to a white-sand beach. Location aside, the big pull is the pool scene. There’s one for activities, another for relaxing, plus a waterpark with slides.
The hotel's a Holiday Village between April and October, so there’s a bumper line-up of activities – think sports like tennis and football, and extras like an Aerial Adventure course, and non-stop kids’ clubs.

Staff Couldn't have been more helpful (would never use First Choice again though)
Unfortunately we arrived the night before the terrorist attack. our holiday was ruined by terribly poor management of the crisis by First Choice alongside the disturbing Chinese whispers and panic from other holiday makers. However the resort, facilities and staff couldn't have done more for us. Obviously about to loose jobs and feeling deeply saddened by the events the Tunisian staff at the resort carried on 'business as usual'. Cannot fault the resort. It would have just been nice to have been able to enjoy it more had First Choice have looked after us all a bit more. We would never, ever use First Choice again as they were horrendous in a crisis and have still not responded to our complaints and the upset they caused, 4 months on but we love this resort, and so did the kids.More
Lovely hotel with good beach access
Can't comment on location as bus/taxi in & out although it was an inexpensive, but quite long 30 minute taxi ride to Yasmine Hammamet. Nothing special there other than the very good Boat restaurant. Hotel room was good size, clean, air conditioned. Twin beds for kids and separate bedroom. When we were there typical guests were those with young children. Usual Holiday Village facilities - the gym was ok but a few bits of equipment out of order. Friendly & helpful staff as we expected. Food was very good, always with variety. There was a bbq option just outside restaurant which was good - every few nights they did steak which was delicious. Not as big as Holiday Village Tenerife but right on the beach. Watersports take place quite close to shore, so having a proper swim (if you like open water swimming) restricted but fine for splashing about near to shore. Beach vendors friendly ugh but a bit of a pest - they did appear to stick to the wet sand only, so you weren't pestered if further up beach on a hotel lounger.More
Great Family Holiday
We enjoyed our stay here. The staff were very friendly and the place was spotless. The food was probably the best food I've ever had in a hotel. We would have returned if it wasn't for the tragic event that happened weeks later in that country. The hotel is out of the way so if you want to venture out this wouldn't be for you.More

Wonderful!!Fantastic!!Best holiday EVER!!
Where to start!!!!from arriving at this perfect hotel we were blown away.it was half past 10 at night and we're greeted with a cocktail..hotel staff took our cases to rooms and we were free to roam this hotel straight away with no fuss.we woke up in the morning,opened our balcony and just WOW!!!SEA VIEW !!!!straight over the complex and best you can imagine. Food was amazing not one bit repetitive and a bbq on every night.have theme nights so different type of food to suit all including kids all cooked in front of you fresh. Snack bar during day served a good purpose with fresh food Drinks not bad at all,local wines and spirits and beer but easily drinkable.if you prefer there is a payable sports bar with imported stuff. rooms and hotel immaculate...can't fault at all. The staff were the most impressive...always went out of their way and we're very friendly and helpful. In particular Balil in the restaurant and MOMO around the pool who makes the kids' day by keeping them entertained. First choice staff reps are fantastic and there is so much going on for the kids at kids club the children are never bored.the entertainment on a night is good for them too. There is a payable tunisian/grill resteraunt too which was really lovely and very affordable.Indian resteraunt there also which was faultless. The behaviour is the best Beach I have ever been on..clean and lovely sunbeds with lovely white sand where you can do watersports if you like that and the bar is part of the all inclusive so u really don't need money to sunbathe There are pools for everyone...relax,activity,kiddies and waterslides. The first holiday we barely left resort but be careful...if you do the trips you need to book thru hotel.camel trip and pirate trip were fab.and if you buy anything. ...HAGGLE!!you need to bring them down to about a third of what they offer. All In all...we hardly spent and came back with money for the first time EVER ....to go straight to the travel agents and book straight up for next year!!!WE CAN'T WAIT!! After all the trouble there we are still happy to go...it's was the vest holiday ever and we always felt safe at this wonderful hotel xMore
