The outstanding thing about this hotel was the food, great choice and good quality. Lunch and dinner were better than breakfast. Good position, tucked away one street behind the main road opposite the beach.

Worst experience ever - Houda is infested with flies, had no air-con in very basic rooms but you can't open windows at night due to flies/mosquito's. We had a room at the back of hotel and asked management on 3 separate occasions to change room due to very loud disco next door which blared on until 4.00am each night, but were told no - despite a whole wing of the complex near the beach being closed ! The food is left out and uncovered so that the huge amount of flies can participate in the daily dining ritual which consists mainly of pizza, chips and burgers - plus the cheapest alcoholic drinks they can lay their hands on. There are no nearby alternatives to eat. The only element that could be commended was the sheer effort and energy of the activities team - a bunch of young guys who worked tirelessly every day for the guests and did so with big smiles. The hotel advertises a gym which is actually a room with 3 pieces of gym equipment and a spa which is well, a room with a table. There are many, many better options elsewhere for a family break !

Because we have been staying at hostels and sleeping in train stations for the majority of our trip, this hotel is probably put under better light by this review.
It's along a line of resorts, but don't think you'll be staying at one even close. The room was badly cleaned, but they had AC available and when the windows were shut, it kept a good deal of the noise out. However, Tunisian people like to stay up VERY late, so you shouldn't be upset to hear a lot of ruckus up until 4am or so.
The staff were very friendly and we were lucky to have the night security speak a great deal of English as we know almost no French or Arabic. But communication was fine when we tried.
We felt secure for the most part, but a lot of the loud noises could be jarring and the only thing that helped that was not being on the first floor. Our AC in the first room was broken and it was SO hot and stuffy but when we asked to change rooms they were very nice about it.
Overall it was a pleasant experience, but I can see many people being highly disappointed with the cleanliness and location (street noise).
