Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have just returned from our latest stay at the oceana our 2nd stay this year.The suites were kept immaculately clean by the chamber maids.The choice and quality of the meals in the main restaurant could not be faulted.but what always excells is the welcome from all the staff. Including reception the bar main restaurant room maids and the mini bar staff. We are already planning our next visit for 2 weeks in January. During our stay there was a seminar for 50 guests. It was organised so well we never saw them.thank you

Oceana is a beautiful hotel with exceptional staff. Nothing was too much for them. And always a smile. The staff are keen on speaking your language so they slip effortlessly from Arabic, to German, French and English. The food is great. A good example of Tunisian flavours while spoiling everyone with French patisserie. The rooms are beautiful with fresh flowers and wonderful sea views. The beach is glorious and the sea easy to swim in.

I can not thank the staff at the beach enough. I was advised by the security guard Naim on the beach not to go into the sea yet I ignored him. I got into difficulty in the sea and tried to shout my family for help but they did not hear or notice me yet they were watching me in the distance however the life guard Maravanee Garuda understood I was struggling. He immediately came to rescue me with a ring. I’m SO grateful to him. I would like the manager to commend the security guard Naim and even more the lifeguard MARAVANEE GARUDA. They are both attentive and observant. Maravanee, you are a credit to the hotel and do a fantastic job. Adel the bar manager came to us personally to ask if everything was ok. Mahdoo at the Frontdesk was so kind and actually bothered about us. Thank you MARAVANEE GARUDA 😊

Hi. I am writing this review as I sit on the balcony of our last day here at the hotel. Food great, head chef and staff friendly and attentive. Room service excellent but rooms are tired and worn. Pools are great. Friendly pool service around the pools for towels and beds. Sea is great, lifeguards and Security are friendly and helpful. Adhere to the flags, we learnt a scary lesson! Reception staff are friendly and helpful but sometimes require a bit of a conversation to see your point of view. Did not use Spa. Gym is ok, and can provide a good Cardio workout. Half board is good but be prepared to pay for drinks and lunchtime food which can vastly increase the cost of your holiday. Lastly I have read previous reviews and I have to agree with that some bar staff are unfriendly and unwelcoming. I suppose I don’t tip enough.

Very very bad hotel! Don’t go there! - Bad food which made us and other hotel guests really sick - Dirty swimming pool - Private party’s for local people (not hotel guests) hotel guests have to leave the bar The list goes on, but short story, spend your money on a better vacation.

Dear Kelly, Thank you for sharing your testimonial. We are so sorry you disliked your stay with us meanwhile we have to mention that our food is checked daily and the pool is cleaned also on a daily basis, since we grant an important attention to the cleanliness. The statement that hotel guests are not allowed at the bar is wrong. Everyone is allowed just that the consumption is extra since the beach bar is not included in the All In formula. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future for a much better stay. Kind regards,

Hotel: Old, and all inclusive means only drinks and buffet… Beachbar NOT ALL INCLUSVE FOR FOOD poolbar NOT ALL INCLUSIVE FOR FOOD Staf: Tunesian arrogance and complete unfriendly when you ask something! Only good staff we saw is the hotel cleaning team. They work with a smile… and deserve respect. BarManagers are grumpy, slow and always looking for money. Amtosphere: Loud, al lot of childeren and in the weekend a complete take over by local tunesian people who stay for party and they are more important then all inclusive guests (we even had to leave the bar because of a “private” party) This hotel is a complete wast of money! Food quality: When you serve melted ice, cold meat you know enough i think. 3/10 max! They will never see us again, and i will even put some effort to safe people this fake all inclusive system Look for Rixos hotels, its the same price class but its real 5***** We took off 1 week earlier… a shame but gladd iam back home!!

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your testimonial. We are so sorry to read that you disliked your stay with us although we believe to have all the premises to provide our guests an enchanting experience. First of all the beach bar is not mentioned to be included in the All In formula but we understand that you would have loved to. The atmosphere is a mix between fun and relaxation, which is what most of what our guests are looking for. We hope though that you will visit us again sometimes soon with the promise of a better stay. Kind regards,

The location of the hotel was great, however the service was very very poor, the food was average and the services were definitely not five star. The supposed “hotel taxi” which was arranged for my husband and I was run down , the taxi driver was rude and demanded payment before even getting to our destination. This hotel is definitely not a five star , I would rate it three stars

My family and I spent a week at this hotel on a TUI package, flying from Manchester. We were somewhat apprehensive as none of us had ever been to Tunisia before. Our week at TUI BLUE Oceana Suites was absolutely fantastic. The hotel itself is stunning, and the rooms are very large. We followed the hotel on several social media sites before going, and were a little worried as the stories they post make it look like there is a constant party atmosphere and we were concerned about noise. The reality could not have been more different. There is entertainment, especially on weekends, but from the rooms you can hear nothing and the hotel has a very peaceful ambiance. The pool is beautiful, and once you walk out, someone brings you beach towels for the sun loungers. The same happens on the beach. We did aqua aerobics which was brilliant, and there are lots of other events too. We also hired a Jet Ski (which you have to pay for) which was really fun. All of the staff at the hotel are really, really lovely. Nader who refills the mini bar daily was especially kind, and made a real effort with guests and we spoke to him every day. Our stay here really was lovely and we will definitely be coming back to TUI BLUE Oceana Suites. Thank you!
