I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights in October and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Staff were very helpful and polite (especially lotfi at the reception desk.) I arrived early but my room was prepared for me within half an hour. I also received a
complimentary upgrade to a sea view room. The view was stunning and the room was very spacious with my own private balcony. The room looked exactly the same as the pictures on the website which is usually quite rare! I stayed on a half board basis - there was a lot of variety with the food and there was something new every night. I never struggled to find something to eat but the food was a little bland for my taste. The location was brilliant, the beach was on the doorstep and there was a supermarket two minutes away. Port yasemine is only a ten minute walk away and hammamet is a short cab ride. There is also a lovely little cafe (hot2hot) nearby where we had lunch most days for a very small price.
A few point for improvement - I could not log into the wifi even in reception for the first few days. Subsequently I managed to get wifi access in the hotel lobby but not in my room. Also, the bathroom/toilet was quite dirty - there were a few permanent stains which were not nice.
Overall, this is a lovely hotel, great value for money, great location, staff are brilliant and I would definitely return!

Try the hot to hot cafe located on the street to the right of the hotel. Food is great and ridiculously cheap (two mains for under a fiver!)
