Lovely stay. Superb service
(wife writing the review here) We went to Tunis for a friend's wedding. The service could not have been better. First of all, the entrance to the hotel is majestic. I gasped and said "Oh la la" out loud when we got to the hotel. Also, security is very tight. The entrance is gated with security guards. All cars are inspected for explosives in order to enter. We were upgraded to a gorgeous suite, had complimentary fruit, wine, and local desserts delivered on our first day. The bed was comfortable and the pool view was lovely. The walk to the beach a bit of a trek but they accommodated my husband who has mobility issues. They gave us a wheelchair to take up to a certain point. From there, they had a golf cart to drive us down. Once on the beach, they set up your towel on the beach chairs and bring over complimentary water and fruit. I was on the beach alone and felt very safe. I left my belongings alone while I was in the water and never had to worry. Further, this is a private section of the beach so there are no vendors trying to sell you stuff at all times. I even witnessed hotel security ask a non-guest to exit the private area of the water. Plus, you can ride a camel on the beach. The only downside is that not all of the workers speak English. I speak rudimentary French which was very helpful. However, all of the front desk staff, concierge, and most bartenders/waiters spoke either very good or sufficient English to get by.

Top notch!
Fantastic hotel. Top notch service. First impression is the gorgeous check in lobby, with traditional Tunisian touches, and an intoxicating fresh jasmine smell. Service was impeccable. Rooms and bathroom are both large and clean. Hands down one of the best hotels in Tunisia. Better than almost every 5-star hotel in the country (maybe all but one). Selection and quality of the breakfast buffet cannot be beat. The hostess that seated us, Madame Leila, provided as perfect service as we have experienced at even the rarest of the 7-star hotels in the Middle East and Asia (that’s some rarified air!). Would love to return. Not the best beach in the country, but that is of course no fault of the hotel. It’s simply that the area isn’t renowned for its beaches.
