It's a wonderful hotel, with a beatiful architecture! It has the best Spa in Tunis and the best chineese restaurant "Li Bai"! The rooms are spacy and very comfy and they have a really good staff! The hotel is situated close to the best night clubs in tunis and has its own golf club! On the other side, you need...

The hotel gives a full 5* service--good, complimentary room service, room cleaning twice a day, nice bathroom, helpful staff, fantastic common amenities. The hotel felt less than half full (probably true) when we stayed there in August for 3 nights, so it felt like we had practically everything to ourselves; only one other person was in the indoor salt water...

The hotel was beautiful but still had maintenance work in the spa which was a shame. The hotel looks tired, it could do with a good clean. You can tell that they are economising, business is not good after recent events and the staff are fed up and not happy, they will tell you their problems with little encouragement: poor...

The Residence Hotel is situated around 20 minutes drive from the airport at Tunis, and provides an ideal combination of Tunisian tradition and good, old fashioned pampering. Home to several excellent restaurants (including the excellent El Dar, and a friendly Chinese called Li Bai), it has a vast outdoor swimming pool, a gym and a thalassotherapy treatment centre. There are...

La Résidence is a relaxing hotel and spa (reputedly the best in Tunisia), situated on a beach in a posh suburb of Tunis. While the architecture could not be described as beautiful from the outside, it was very tastefully decorated inside. The amenities were excellent, and the service faultless. Our room was well laid out, and a nice touch was...

Drove from Tunis airport but could not find the hotel. Very remote. Poorly signposted. Had to get a taxi from La Marsa with partner following behind in the car trying to keep up! Was disappointed at the location at the end of a very dark road in the middle of absolutely nowhere. There is nothing close by, no restaurants or...

It is a shame that this beacon of Tunisian Hotels was located miles from anywhere : 2 taxi drivers could not find it, and along the Coast just 6 miles away is stunning.The staff are well trained, and have been recruited for the right atitude, but this alone cannot compensate for poor Brochure Descriptions (Garden rooms face the Car Park...

I stayed here with my husband and mother. We had a wonderful time. I can still smell the neroli fragrance that graced the air. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is a beautiful property that is appointed perfectly. The restaurant choices are greatly varied and all are delicious. The service was perfect. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
