... submitting to the tyranny of an insane master by agreeing to murder his son, only to be let off the hook for a baby sheep, i.e. the base act of subjugation to the irration that pervades all Abrahamic religions. Well, so here, it means four days of lamb slaughterings and barbecues. I saw some kids leading a delicious looking one down the street, letting it eat decorative flowers in one last act of fattening.

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Miramar Thalassa Monastir
My friend and I went here for a 3 night break, on a last minute deal for £99.
We have just returned from a very nice stay at the Miramar Thalassa....staying half board for 2 weeks.....2 adults and 2 children....
First of all, the hotel is not exactly located in Monastir: it is based in the middle of nowhere between Sousse (7km) and Monastir (10km) which can be accessed by taxi (a total rip off, be ready to bargain hard, and confirm the price PRIOR to getting into the cab) or by the unreliable but cheap local buses. Personally Monastir was much friendlier, cleaner and interesting than Sousse, and you can find excellent coucous restaurants at every corner.
I booked this holiday as a 'last minute' deal a week before departure. I was feeling tired, stressed-out and desperate for a break somewhere warm, quiet and relaxing, (and preferably with a bit of sun!). I came home after our seven night stay feeling de-stressed and with a reasonable tan. I thoroughly recommend this hotel and would certainly stay there again if I returned to this area of Tunisia.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this luxury hotel; the staff were pleasant and helpful, the entertainment "quaint" but enjoyable. My husband is a devout carnivore and enjoyed the buffet meals immensely but I had difficulty finding a well balanced plate of food because I am a vegetarian. It would have been so very useful to have foods labelled with a "V" as appropriate. Despite making this suggestion, no action was taken by the catering staff so I had to ask if certain dishes were suitable for me. I got wrong information so often that I gave up and lived on salads - goods for my figure but rather boring day after day.
Went there on honeymoon just before Christmas and it couldn't have been nicer. Food was great, staff were fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful. Entertainment team were a joy to be around and all in all it was a wonderful holiday, even though it rained!! Look forward to returning when the weather gets better ;)
My boyfriend and I visited Tunisia in November 2004. It was our first trip there and overall we were very happy with our stay. The hotel was lovely, really impressive, and we had a massive room. The rooms were cleaned every day and our bedspread shaped into a little pattern. Overall the staff were very nice and helpful, one or two of the waiters were actually quite rude however. We stayed half board and the food was ok but not brilliant - this seemed to vary day to day. There was long life milk for cereal, tea and coffee. There was a guy cooking omelettes every morning which were really good, as was the bread - huge selection and all fresh. There was a lot of choice for dinner as well, but again this varied - some days there were more dishes than others. Usually there would be some traditional Tunisian meals, alongside some pasta, meat and salad dishes. Plenty of desserts as well, fresh fruit, cakes and sweets. Personally I would avoid salad and fruit unless you wash it in bottled water first. There are 2 other restaurants in the hotel but we didn't try these, as well as a Moorish cafe which looked nice but there was never anyone in there.
Two families went together. The hotel was clean and grateful that we could get rooms next door to each other.
By far the best bit of the holiday was the beach. It kept the kids occupied. Kidsclub was the same every day. Food was not served in the evening until 6.30 too late for children. The service was not great until last day when people were expecting tips.
The biggest disadvantage was that there was no babysitting service provided and therefore by the time we had got the kids to bed the food had been standing around for 2 hrs.
We still managed to have a great holiday.
The Miramar is probably not a 4 star but this is Africa ! It is clean and comfortable with air con in all the rooms. The food was of a high standard with pleanty of choice! Of course if you pile everything on your plate every night then you may become a little bored!
This hotel is supposed to be a 4 star but i think it should have been down graded to a two star.
the place is awful. the rooms are dreadful. Food was no good either.
