Royal Miramar Thalassa is one of the hotels of tunisian chain El Hana working under Miramar trade mark. It is situated in Skanes resort area, right on the beach, between 2 cities: Monastir and Sousse. I fell in love with this hotel as soon as I saw its photos in catalogue and I chose it without any doubt. After 2 weeks spent in this hotel I can tell you that I made excellent choice. The hotel consists of a main building and several bungalows situated on a large, well-kept, green territory. There is a thalasso center, one of the best in Tunisia, belonging to the hotel. Thalasso center has a large swimming pool and even handicapped persons and kids will be able to come down into the water without any difficulties. There is a wide choise of European and local food. People having a sweet tooth will be happy with rich assortment of desserts and pastry. Friendly staff speaking English, French, German, Italian, Spanish pays attention to each guest and assists to solve any problem. Excellent animators work in this hotel and arrange various entertainment programs every evening. Daytime activities are also well-organized. Souvenirs sellers come to the hotel every weekend to organize a kind of fair and you can buy all you need right at your hotel. The only advice - bargain!
Skanes is a resort area where all hotels are situated right along the beach but there are no shops, markets, restaurants, houses there. However there is "Safari" entertainment center just in front of the hotel entrance where you can find a gift shop, a coffee shop and a night club where you can have fun every night.
Monastir and Sousse are quite close (only 9 km to reach both, but opposite directions) and you can take a taxi right near the hotel entrance to visit these cities with their places of interest, shops and medinas (oriental markets). They are worth it believe me. And the same advice - bargain with a taxi driver before you start your trip. Be ready to bargain constantly in this country, every time you buy something and get some service. Bargain! This is what local people expect from you, this is a part of their culture.
The only disadvantage which I can mention is that you have to pay if you use lounge chairs near the swimming pool or on the beach. The price is 2 dinars (local currency) per day. But this fact can hardly spoil your excellent holidays.
