Dreadful Experience, checked out within 48 hrsPosted Oct 21, 2014
Cons: Start with manners/helpful attitude at the front desk, fumigate the pool area, switch the air con on, demolish rooms which back on 'Ali's Disco' etc..
Location: Houda is in an industrial estate right next to a power station. The taxi drivers who hound you at the front gate can take you to Monastir or Sousse
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 !
