Good beach, nice hotel but rather far from sights
Posted Feb 1, 2015
Nicely maintained main level interior public spaces, and comfortable and very nice rooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lounge area downstairs permits smoking everywhere, so eating or getting refreshments there is no good if you are a non-smoker. Breakfast was good and with a lot of choices in the buffet. Food at the main restaurant was good, but the Chinese was a real disappointment. There was really nothing "Chinese" about the way the food was prepared - just regular restaurant food, and very average. Hassan at the main restaurant was great - fast, friendly, attentive, and efficient. Beach was nice, but not in use due to cold weather/season. Same with outdoor pool, which was drained and empty at the time of my stay. The hotel is in a quiet location and pretty far from the old city (40+ min depending on traffic) and around 20 minutes drive from Carthage and tourist areas there.
