TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Acqua Viva Gammarth
nothing around here except beach - no shops or restaurants. everyone spoke french so difficult to speak at reception, food basic. there were many facilities including disco, horses, camels, crazy golf, swimming pool and flumes/tobaggon but many were closed due to so few people in the hotel.
