We stayed here in early October and didn't see a cloud all the time we were there. The hotel staff did everything they could to make our stay comfortable, and Ali, overseeing the shee-sha was magnificent in his attention to detail. What really was the icing on the cake was the provision of a room for us to use for...

So, my title is leisure / business but for those considering a leisure trip here, please don't let the business part put you off. I come here on business but thoroughly enjoy my stay each time and feel like I have come for a break. Don't worry, it's not swarming with businessmen at all given it's quite far from the...

We are just back from one week at the Residence and it was fabulous as usual.

Tunisia is not a luxury destination, but the residence is the exception to this rule. A very nice hotel with a cool heated swimmingpool, a gorgeous golf course, good food, professional staff and a relaxing spa. Sidi bou said is close to the hotel, A good spot for a nice dinner or an aperitive.

We travelled with our two 9-year old children for 10 days and I have to say the service, attention and friendliness of all the staff was exemplary. One of the hotel's measurable competencies seems to be anticipation (wow - tough one to continually exceed!) yet they passed with flying colours, dealing with a (noise) complaint quickly and beyond our expectations....

A lovely hotel, elegant and comfortable. The staff were all very pleasant and friendly, nothing was too much trouble.

I loved every minute at this hotel. It has a beautiful lobby and even more beautiful rooms. We had a standard room which was extremely comfortable and spacious. The balcony is big enough for the complimentary breakfast to be served out there in the morning and has chairs and a table for enjoying the sea or gardens. Upon arrival we...

After two weeks driving through Tunisia, we splurged on The Residence. We didn’t want to leave our room! At this hotel, you feel like you could be nearly any place in the world—sometimes that’s exactly what you need.
