Farewell dinner... good service and tips

Last Supper
Tonight is our last dinner at the Marhaba Palace and so not unexpectedly we receive exceptional service this evening. It's a ritual - which sometimes descends to pantomine - we've seen acted out a few times now. Waiters rushing round guests at their last meal, presumably to ensure that they get a good tip.

So we play our part and let our waiter go through the ritual. ...

Ribat ribat
The ribat, whilst built as a fortification, also became a religious centre and was for some time a place of pilgrimage.

It was erected in 796 AD and has been enlarged several times making it probably one of the largest surviving ribats in North Africa. It was enlarged on the north side ...

Rehydrated, rested and relaxed

A travel blog entry by tonyhudson

Arriving back at the hotel I head for the water dispenser adjacent to the bar and quench my thirst.

It sure was hot out there and unfortunetly I was without money so couldn't stop off for a drink on the road from Sousse.

So after a shower and change of clothes, I was actually dripping wet, I feel a lot better and can genuinely put my feet up!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Thalassa Village Skanes Monastir

    Una vacanza eccezionale

    from

    Thalassa Village Hotel Skanes, Monastir: Superlativo! Data: 24 dicembre 2006. Io e mio marito abbiamo soggiornato in questo hotel per una settimana. Il cibo era eccellente, a buffet, ma con almeno 8 tipi diversi di carne e un sacco di piatti vegetariani. Il personale dell'hotel era eccezionale. Non abbiamo nulla di cui lamentarci. La camera era impeccabile, la trovavamo pulita ogni giorno, con asciugamani nuovi. Abbiamo fatto un tour del deserto di due giorno e abbiamo soggiornato in un hotel magnifico per una notte. Ci siamo svegliati alle 04:30 del mattino per colazione, poi siamo saliti su un autobus che ci ha portati al lago salato ad osservare l'alba. Era un po' presto, ma ne valeva la pena. C'erano davvero molte cose da vedere in due giorni e alla fine ci siamo trovati un po' stanchi. Se volete recarvi a Sousse da soli, chiedete all'hotel di prenotarvi un taxi. Abbiamo dovuto aspettare 6 minuti per l'arrivo del taxi, che ci è costato solo 10 dinas! Siamo stati alla Medina e non ci hanno infastidito più di tanto. Facevamo finta di niente e ci lasciavano in pace. La Tunisia è un luogo incantevole e le persone sono meravigliose. Speriamo di poter ritornare a dicembre. Mr e Mrs Taylor

    Sencillo, acogedor, encantador... para repetir estancia

    from

    Estuvimos hace un año y aun lo seguimos recordando con nostalgia y felicidad. Como pongo en el titulo, hotel sencillo, sin grandes alardes que lo suple con un encanto generalizado en sus instalaciones y con la atencion y educacion de sus empleados (a todos los niveles). Buena comida, buenos servicios (piscinas, restaurantes, bares, recepcion, etc...), limpieza y un entorno (jardines y playa), muy bien cuidados.

    En definitiva, que por nuestra experiencia, volveria a repetir y a recomendarlo sin dudar.

    All good overall

    from

    We spent 1 week in Thalassa Village Sousse . Liked it overall . Clean and tidy rooms , quickly responding manager , wide range of meals . Expensive disco club after 23:00 , also the DJ a bit poor . Exceptionally large main pool ( there are 4 in total including the one that serves the 3 water slides )- clean and well designed .Tunisia wont be your cup of tea if you like drinking though - its a muslim country . State monopol on beer and spirits .We had a nice short trip on a catamaran at a low cost of TD 15 per person ( could have paid even less if negotiated ) and an annoying camel ride through an olive garden near the desert .

    El mejor todavía

    from

    Acabamos de regresar de habernos hospedado 2 semanas con todo incluido en el Talaza Villas Skanes. Leí unas críticas terribles antes de irnos, y estaba bastante preocupada. Sin embargo, no podemos quejarnos del lugar. Las habitaciones en un alojamiento estilo bungalow eran encantadoras, y la de nosotros tenía el baño más grande que he visto en un hotel extranjero. Todo el personal se esforzaba mucho desde la mañana hasta la noche para mantener el lugar limpio y ordenado. Admito que usualmente habían algunas colas para las comidas y las bebidas, pero era un complejo muy grande, y el personal hizo lo mejor que pudo para servirle rápidamente a todo el mundo. No fue un verdadero problema. ¿Cuando estás de vacaciones, cuál es la prisa? Las piscinas eran muy grandes, así que nunca hubo problema de multitudes, y siempre lográbamos nadar. Por último pero no menos importante, no podemos hablar lo suficientemente bien del equipo de animación, quien se esforzó tanto por proveer a todo el mundo con juegos divertidos y entretenimiento desde la mañana hasta la noche. Fueron maravillosos sin ser demasiado agresivos. Todos hablaban por lo menos 4 idiomas. Nuestra escasez de habilidades nos hizo sentir un poco avergonzados. En las 14 noches, proveyeron un show diferente cada noche, y demostraron tener mucho talento. Los shows fueron muy superiores al show que nos dieron nuestros propios representantes, por el cual pagamos. Mi esposo y yo hubiéramos pagado para ver los shows de nuestro equipo. Era una gente joven tan maravillosa y amable. Todos los shows tomaron lugar en el anfiteatro del hotel, lo cual quería decir que no nos sentábamos adentro cuando hacía tanto calor. En general, mi marido describe estas vacaciones como una de las mejores, y estoy de acuerdo.

    For a relaxing, enjoyable holiday near Monastir

    from

    Spent a week at the Thalassa Village Skanès as part of an all-inclusive package holiday with First Choice. The layout of the hotel follows the concept of a small, self-contained village set on the coast between Monastir and Sousse. The rooms are within terraced bungalows nicely set within the large, landscaped grounds and linked by paved paths to the "village centre" where the bars, cafes, restaurants and pools are based. The hotel also has it's own private beach.

    Toujours le meilleur

    from

    Nous rentrons juste de 2 semaines en all inclusive au Thalassa Village Skanes et après avoir lu de sales commentaires avant notre départ nous étions vraiment inquiets. Cependant, je n'ai rien à reprocher à cet hôtel. Les chambres, de type bungalow, étaient très mignonnes et on avait la plus grande salle de bains que j'aie jamais eue dans un hôtel à l'étranger. Tout le personnel travaillait très dur du matin au soir pour que l'endroit reste propre. Je reconnais qu'il y avait généralement de longues files d'attente pour les repas et les boissons mais c'est un club très grand et les employés faisaient de leur mieux pour servir tout le monde rapidement. Ce n'était pas très grave : quand on est en vacances pourquoi se presserait-on...Les piscines étaient très grandes et donc jamais surpeuplées; on a toujours réussi à nager. Enfin, je ne dirai jamais assez de bien de l'équipe d'animation qui travaillait très dur pour divertir tout le monde du matin au soir. Ils étaient vraiment très bien, sans être lourds. Ils parlaient tous 4 langues, nous faisant ainsi honte de ne pas être aussi doués qu'eux. Sur les 14 nuits que nous avons passées à l'hôtel, on a eu un spectacle différent tous les soirs, et de qualité. Ces spectacles étaient bien meilleurs que ceux pour lesquels nous avons payés. Nous aurions même accepté de payer pour voir ces spectacles donnés par notre équipe, des jeunes et fort sympathiques personnes. Tous les spectacles se passaient dans l'amphithéâtre de l'hôtel, à l'intérieur - il faisait tellement chaud dehors. Pour résumé, mon mari dit que c'est les meilleures vacances de sa vie, et je ne peux que confirmer.

    Bisher das Beste

    from

    Wir sind gerade aus einem 2 wöchigen AI Urlaubes im Thalassa Village Skanes zurückgekommen.Hatten vorher wirklich heftige Kritiken gelesen und waren deshalb sehr beunruhigt. Nun ja, wir konnten nichts schlechtes an dem Hotel finden. Die Zimmer in den Bungalows waren sehr schön und hatte das große Badezimmer, dass ich je in einem Hotel gesehen habe. Alle Angestellten haben wirklich von morgens bis abends sehr hart gearbeitet um alles in Ordnung zu halten. Manchmal musste man zwar beim Essen anstehen, aber es ist ja auch ein großes Hotel und die Angestellten tun wirklich ihr Bestes. Alles kein Problem, da man eh nicht in Eile ist, wenn man im Urlaub ist. Die Pools sind sehr groß, deshalb hat man auch nie Probleme, freizügig schwimmen gehen zu können. Letztlich und endlich können wir das Animationsteam nicht hoch genug loben, Sie haben sich wirklich mit allem möglichen so viel Mühe gegeben und das von morgens bis abends. Sie waren immer sehr freundlich und haben uns nie bedrängt. Alle haben mind. 4 Sprachen gesprochen und innerhalb der 14 Nächte, in denen wir dort waren, hatten sie jede Nacht eine andere Show vorbereitet. Sie sind wirklich sehr talentiert. Selbst die teure Show, die wir über unsere Reiseleitung gebucht hatten, war nicht so gut, wie diese. Wir hätten sogar dafür bezahlt unser Team zu sehen, sie waren wirklich so wundervolle und freundliche junge Leute. Alle Shows fanden im hoteleigenen Amphitheater statt, also musste man nicht wie in einer Sauna, drinnen im Hotel sitzen, wenn es sehr heiß war. Wir hatten wirklich einen der besten Urlaube in unserem ganzen Leben.

    Best Yet

    from

    We have just returned from 2 weeks all inclusive at the Thalassa village Skanes. read some rotten reviews before we went and was really worried. However we could not fault the place. The rooms in bungalow type accommodation were lovely and ours had the biggest bathroom I have ever had in a foreign hotel. All the staff worked really hard from morning to night keeping the place clean and tidy. Granted there was usually some queues for meals and drinks but it was a very big complex and staff did their best to serve everyone quickly. No real problem, when you are on holiday what is the rush. The pools were all very big so there was never a problem with being overcrowded and we could always manage to swim. Last but not least we cannot speak too highly of the animation team who worked so hard to provide everyone with fun games and entertaiment from getting up too going to bed. They were wonderful without being too pushy. They all spoke at least 4 languages and made us feel quite ashamed at our lack of their skills. over the 14 nights they provided a different show every night and proved to be very talented. Their shows were far superior to the show we paid for, that was given by our own reps. My husband and I would have paid to see the shows given by our team and they were such wonderful friendly young people. All shows were in the hotel's ampithetre which meant no sitting indoors when it was so very warm. All in all my husband describes this holiday as one of the best and I can't disagree.
