    Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Gammarth

    Passable, idéal juste pour dormir

    from

    Séjour d'1 semaine en juin 2005 pour un couple et un enfant de 2 ans.

    Pas de tarif enfant.

    Bel hotel, spacieux.

    1/2 pension passable. Buffet du midi d'un prix prohibitif (75 DT pour 2 adultes et un enfant de 2 ans) compte tenu de ce qui a été servi (quantité et qualité type "cantine scolaire")

    Petit déjeuner simple.

    Buffet du soir passable (on mange beaucoup mieux dans les gargottes alentours ou à la marsa )

    Chambre spacieuse et propre.

    A la réservation malgré le fait que nous avions payé pour le prix d'un adulte pour notre enfant, nous avions demandé un lit bébé (problème de chute du lit) mais pas moyen d'en avoir un.

    Piscine propre mais on se débrouille tout seul pour tout (transat, tapis de transat, parasol)

    Plage pas terrible: petite, sale (morceaux de verres, mégots de cigarettes), bruyante (travaux à proximité), toilettes fermées.

    Personnel poli mais sans plus.

    C'est un hotel pratique lorsque le but est de visiter les environs accessibles facilement en bus, taxi et métro (TGM), pas pour y passer ses journées

    En résumé : 4* pour les batiments, les chambres, les piscines, à peine une voir 2 * tout le reste.

    Where form triumphs over function

    from

    This hotel does not know what it wants to be (tourists or business) and does not do some of it very well. The room we had was fine (though no more than you'd expect in a 5* hotel - albeit a north African one) but it had been raining before we arrived and the balcony was flooded to the extent that the carpet by the window was also damp.

    The worst thing was the food. The buffets looked good, but food that was supposed to be hot was often either lukewarm or stone cold. Moreover much of the food tasted of little or nothing. The staff, while not unpleasant, were not friendly and helpful enought to compensate for this major short-coming.

    Finally, the location of the hotel was not particularly enjoyable, as there was nowhere at all within walking distance that you would want to walk to.

    Not recommended.

    ¿5 Estrellas?

    from

    Acabo de volver de este hotel. Estuve ahí una semana. Primero, esto NO es un hotel de 5 estrellas en el sentido estricto de la palabra. Las habitaciones están bien, bueno, al menos algunas de ellas. Ten cuidado con lo de "vistas a la playa o piscina", porque puedes acabar teniendo vistas al aire acondicionado. El servicio es sencillamente horrible. Tienes que pedir las cosas 5 veces e incluso así no te sirven. Podría estar mucho mejor con solo que la gente fuera un poco más amable y competente. No es un hotel de 5 estrellas, Cuando menos, no en este planeta.

    Correcto pero con algunas pequeñas rarezas

    from

    Estuve aquí durante una importante conferencia en Túnez, por lo que estuve muy ocupado. El hotel es un gran resort de tipo palaciego situado en una zona turística cerca de una playa. Hay muy poco que hacer en los alrededores aparte de pasear por los hoteles vecinos, pero está a escasa distancia en coche o taxi (los taxis son baratos en Túnez) de sitios interesantes como Cartago y Sidi Bou Said. Primero, la parte buena. Mi habitación estaba limpia y era espaciosa. También era tranquila, mirando a algo parecido a un jardín (las habitaciones que dan a la piscina no deben ser tan tranquilas en verano). El servicio de lavandería venía el mismo día sin problema. El buffet del desayuno es enorme y está bastante bien (excepto el café), aunque acondicionan el lugar por razones que solo ellos conocen. Hay un restaurante italiano que sirve comida a un precio razonable. Ahora hablaré del resto. Nada de lo referente a recepción conserje/cajero fue fácil, incluido conseguir la atención del personal en primer lugar. Todos eran educados pero no necesariamente útiles. El ingreso nos llevó media hora porque no pudieron encontrar mi nombre en una lista que yo encontré más tarde por ellos. La salida del hotel supuso para mi y la mayoría de la gente disputas por la cuenta. La caja de caudales de la habitación siguió siendo segura porque se negaba a abrirse. Un colega mío tuvo el mismo problema y pidió a recepción un consejo sobre lo que tenía que hacer y lo único que se les ocurrió decirle es que las instrucciones estaban dentro de la caja. Lamento no haberles pedido cuál era la finalidad de una gran pipa que emergía del hotel no lejos de mi habitación que echaba de forma regular un molesto vapor como en la película de Fritz Lang "Metropolis". En resumen, no demasiado mal, pero hay sitios más interesantes donde estar en Túnez si lo que buscas son buenas vistas.

    5 étoiles ?

    from

    Je reviens juste de cet hôtel. J'y suis resté une semaine. Premièrement ce n'est pas un hôtel 5 étoiles comme on l'entend. Les chambres sont correctes, enfin, au moins quelques unes d'entre elles. Attention quand on vous dit "avec vue sur la plage ou la piscine", parce que vous pouvez vous retrouver avec vue sur l'air conditionné. Le service est simplement horrible. Il faut commander 5 fois et on n'est même pas sûr d'obtenir ce qu'on veut. Ca pourrait être beaucoup mieux si le personnel était un peu plus gentil et compétent. Cet hôtel n'est pas un 5 étoiles, du moins pas sur cette terre...

    Correct mais quelques bizarreries

    from

    J'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel lors d'une importante conférence à Tunis, une période plutôt agitée pour l'hôtel.

    L'hôtel est un grand complexe situé dans une zone touristique à coté d'une jolie plage de taille moyenne. Aux alentours, il y a peu à faire mis à part se promener dans les hôtels avoisinants. Cependant en voiture ou en taxi (les taxis ne sont pas chers en Tunisie) il est facile de se rendre dans des endroits intéressants à voir comme Carthage et Sidi Bou Said.

    Commençons par les bons points. Ma chambre était propre et spacieuse. Elle était également calme avec vue sur un jardin plutôt ancien (les chambres donnant sur la piscine ne doivent pas être si calmes en été). Ma lessive a été faite le même jour sans aucun problème. Bien que tout soit chaque jour disposé de façon différente pour des raisons qui leur sont propres, le buffet du petit déjeuner est énorme et plutôt bon (sauf le café). Il y a un restaurant italien pratiquant des prix raisonnables.

    Maintenant concernant les points négatifs, tout était compliqué, que ce soit à la réception, avec le concierge ou au moment de payer. Dès le début, il était difficile de ne serait-ce qu'obtenir l'attention du personnel. Tout le monde était poli mais pas très serviable. Pour avoir la chambre cela m'a pris une demi-heure car ils n'arrivaient pas à me trouver sur la liste; au bout d'un moment je leur y ai moi-même trouvé mon nom.

    Lorsque j'ai rendu la chambre j'ai eu un désaccord avec la réception sur la facture pendant des heures... et je n'étais pas le seul.

    Le coffre-fort s'est avéré être très efficace car il a refusé de s'ouvrir. C'est également arrivé à un de mes collègues, il en a parlé à la réception et on lui a répondu « les instructions sont à l'intérieur du coffre ».

    Je regrette de ne pas avoir demandé pourquoi il y avait un énorme tuyau émergeant de l'hôtel pas très loin de ma chambre et d'où sortait régulièrement de la vapeur en faisant beaucoup de bruit, comme dans le film « Metropolis » de Fritz Lang. Pour résumer, pas si mal, mais il y a des endroits meilleurs ou loger à Tunis si vous voulez visiter.

    Not quite a 5*

    from

    We stayed in the Melia El Mouradi Gammarth for a week in late August 2006.

    The hotel is new and rather nice.

    _Personnel_

    The personnel is polite and competent though not always diligent or fluent in English (or French).

    _Rooms_

    The room we had was large, discreetly decorated, neat, very comfy (especially the gigantic bed), complemented by a balcony with a plastic table, two chairs and a clothes drying rack.

    The bathroom was OK.

    A very large closet and a safe were in the corridor.

    There was an efficient AC system. About 15 local and international TV channels (news, music, general) were available.

    Pay attention, rooms with a view on the pool are very noisy, especially during the afternoon. Ours had a view on the nearby road and the hotel entrance, but was pretty quiet which was really nice for afternoon naps while the pool area was crowed with guests in the middle of their aquagym in (very loud) music.

    _Food_

    Breakfast was continental with crepes on demand (whenever available), a variety of pastries, scrambled eggs, tea, chocolate, light coffee, etc.

    The dinner buffet was fine as well, with several salads and different meals (at least fresh pasta, rice, potatoes, red/white meat, poultry, fish) every day. Even my very-picky-with-food better half found at least a few things to eat that he found delicious -- maybe it's my cooking after all ! ;o)

    Vegetarians can eat safe there too.

    However, it's a pity the hotel did not offer more local food (couscous, tajines, brochettes, pastillas, meatballs, etc.), as we only ate (a tasty) couscous once at the hotel.

    There are other places in the hotel where you can grab something to drink, espeially the Café Maure, however, we have never been able to have anything there since there was no one at all to take our order. The decor seemed fine however.

    _Activities_

    The outside pool area is big with a separate pool for kids.

    The covered pool (much smaller and less frequented than the outside pool) was OK.

    A few activities are organised every afternoon including Arabic lessons, archery, salsa lessons, aquagym, beach volleyball, etc.

    The beach next to the hotel is safe and guarded with long chairs and beach umbrellas.

    There was a night-club and theme parties organised every night.

    _Around the hotel_

    The hotel is not very far from the Ruins of Carthage, La Marsa and Tunis, the capital.

    There is a bus stop right next to the hotel and taxis waiting to take you to La Marsa or Carthage where you can stay to enjoy a fabulous mint tea in a café, visit historical sites or take a train to Tunis and other places.

    ***

    Even it lacked a je-ne-sais-quoi to turn it into a genuine five-star, I must say it was a good overall experience and I would recommend the El Mouradi to anyone who wants to have a nice stay in Gammarth.

    Hope you'll find this review informative.

    Que pena

    from

    Ciao a tutti,

    siamo stati al Mouradi Gammarth 10 gg e, francamente, l'unica cosa vera che le agenzie ti vendono di questo hotel é la fotografia!

    All'ora della colazione preparatevi a code in attesa di tazze e cucchiaini, a personale scadente ed assolutamente privo di qualsiasi nozioni di ristorazione (si vede che le assunzioni sono al risparmio totale) ed a terminare la cena senza avere le bevande in tavola. Meno male che, in cambio, i cuochi sanno il fatto loro e sinceramente il buffet é gradevole e con una scelta abbastanza ampia.

    Altro punto nerissimo : L'animazione non esiste! Ci sono 3 ragazzi di buona volontá peró senza mezzi e materiali ( niente beach-volley perché la palla si é rotta, niente arco perché non ci sono frecce, il minigolf é coperto da erbacce, 1 solo impianto stereo vecchio e mal funzionante da dividere con eventuali meeting e congressi ( in questo caso tu ti ritrovi senza musica senza aerobica e senza giochi in piscina). L'unica cosa che ci hanno proposto in 10 gg é stato il gioco delle bocce...divertentissimo!!!! E la sera ancora peggio, meglio una buona dormita o la televisione se avete la fortuna di trovare il telecomando in camera! Conclusione: la direzione dell'hotel dovrebbe darsi una svegliata ...e cambiare il capo animatore che é abbastanza poco animato ! Auguri a Momo, Aziz e Zizu 3 ragazzi (animatori) simpatici e pazienti con cui almeno abbiamo riso tutti, grandi e piccini!!!

    5 star?

    from

    I just came back from this hotel.Stood there 1 week.First, this is NOT a 5 star hotel in a common sense of the word.Rooms are ok, well, at least some of them.Carefull with the "view to the beach or swimming pool, cause you may find yourself looking to an air condicioner.Service is just terrible.You have to order the things 5 times and even then it just isn't done.Could be much much better if only the people were a little bit nicer and competent. Not a 5 star hotel, at least, not in this earth...

    OK but some little oddities

    from

    I stayed here during a major conference in Tunis, so it was pretty busy.

    The hotel is a big resort-style place located in a tourist zone near a pretty average beach. There is very little to do in the immediate area other than wander to neighbouring hotels, but it is a short car drive or taxi ride (taxis are cheap in Tunisia) to interesting places such as Carthage and Sidi Bou Said.

    First, the good parts. My room was clean and spacious. It was also quiet, overlooking a somewhat threadbare garden (rooms overlooking the swimming pool may not be so peaceful in summer). Laundry came back same day no problem. The breakfast buffet is enormous and pretty good (coffee excepted), even if they do rearrange the location of everything each day for reasons best known to themselves. There is an Italian restaurant serving reasonably priced food.

    Now for the rest. Nothing at reception/concierge/cashier was easy, including getting the attention of staff in the first place. Everyone was polite but not necessarily helpful. Check-in took half an hour because they could not find my name on a list where I later found it for them. Check-out for me and most people seemed to involve endless disputes about the bill.

    The room safe remained very safe as it refused to open. A colleague of mine had the same problem and asked reception for advice on how to operate it, only to be told "the instructions are inside the safe."

    I regret not asking the purpose of a large pipe emerging from the hotel not far from my room which regularly belched noisy steam like something from Fritz Lang's "Metropolis".

    All in all, not too bad, but there are more interesting places to stay around Tunis if you are looking to see the sights.
