... preservation. The tessera (stones) were tiny & the detail in them was amazing comparable with anything we have ever seen. The craftsmen & artists of the area were famous throughout the Roman Empire. Apparently only the Bardo museum in Tunis has as good works.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Liberty Resort Hotel Monastir
Having read reviews of this hotel before I went I was dreading it. But it was an OK holiday. However, the majority of the criticisms are spot on. All I can add is the hotel shop is VERY expensive and pack plenty of warm clothes if you are going in February to wear at night-time.There is a cheap supermarket not too far away. There was enough for a family with young children to do and a lovely indoor pool. Although the recent sacking of the great kids entertainer Mr Hello meant that the kids club was practically non-existent.If you like spirits, buy them at the airport as whisky costs upwards of £60 a bottle!Also don't bother saving any dinars for the airport on the way home as you can pay for things in euros or pounds. I loved the trips out but we paid for an Arabian Nights trip which wasn't that great and apparently was performed brilliantly and for free in the hotel! Overall as I said it was OK, especially given the low cost of the actual holiday.
we have just returned from hotel liberty, over all i would say hotel was very clean, entertainment was good, entertainment staff worked hard to get everyone envolved, food was not to bad, buffett style, meat chicken or fish, good salad selection.the only draw back is that there is nothing nearby in walking distance, nearest towns being sousse or monastir which is about 20 mins in the bus or 10 mins in a taxi, these towns are worth a visit but beware. not for the faint hearted, i supose there just desperate for a sale, some bargains to be had though, the usual souveniers, fake clothes and trainers. i must be honest I would not return to Tunisia,but its worth a visit.
Well I have to say after reading what some people had wrote and being told by several people about Tunisia I was very worried to say the least especially as it was just me and my friend two young blond girls.
I bought this holiday as a treat for my husband, I decided to take him somewhere we had never been before and I was a little disappointed unfortunately. I was not prepared for the hassle which was a little shock especially when sat by the pool in the hotel when you thought you were safe. My husband was never hassled but I was constantly. We went to the beach on day one and got so hassled we never went back however we did end up with some stuff camels and headdresses we didn't want but made easy gifts! Overall the hotel was very nice, lovely reception very impressive and comfortable. Rooms were very nice with TV, air con, massive balcony, large beds, en-suite with bath and shower - cleaned regularly and nice patterns made on the bed with your bedclothes which was sweet. Pool was huge and looked great but because the water was constantly being filtered it was very cold. Food was hit and miss although I tended to manage to find something to eat and being a fussy eater I was pleasantly surprised at this. Drinks inculsive were 10am - 10pm and although limited were adequate enough. I didn't like walking through the hotel though as you would get hassle from the guy who wants to take your photo, the shop guys and some others that I am not sure what they wanted but they did tended to follow you shouting hello. Nights were a pain as we were directly above the American bar and they played music very loud up to 3am and it was impossible to sleep through, which meant I spent most of the holiday very tired. Although amused some nights with the very bad karaoke that was filtering up. Entertainment staff worked very hard to get people involved and lots were however it is a predominately French/German hotel and you are definitely down the pecking order. I was very impressed with their language skills though. Advertising all inclusive sports is a bit cheeky for example you can use the tennis courts for free but you had to pay to borrow the rackets and balls so not really all inclusive. I must admit to being glad when the end of the holiday came and we could go home and we were only there a week. I will not be returning but if you are made of stronger stuff than me with regard to food and the hassle then it is very nice hotel.
Having stayed here I can now put my little bit about this hotel.
on going to the liberty several times, i find staff,cleaners,waiters all friendly, if you dont like the food you only need to ask and the chef will make what you like. the beach is lovely, as for hassle a firm no thanks does the trick. off again 25/5
After reading the other reviews on the site, we were very worried about our already booked holiday.
Just don't go
The food is terrrible. From a very strange looking chicken to a disgusting pureed potato. I lived on croissants for the week (thank you Khalid). The local drinks taste awful, like Birds Apeal drink. No chance of any alcohol unless your prepared to pay over the odds in the American Bar. Theres nothing to do, except a game of pool. Down a track is the beach which is full of litter. Step out of the hotel and get a bus to Monastir or Sousse (hold on though because the bus driver uses his mobile phone whilst driving!). If you dare go by taxi dont be too alarmed when he keeps stopping to pick other people up! When you do get to where your going be prepared to be hassled big time. Be warned though because All Inclusive does not mean the same as it does in Europe.
Hotel was dated to say the least. Most of the hotel staff were friendly and helpful however this does not include the bar staff who were particularly rude at times. The AI bar only served local lager, wine and 2 local spirits that were disgusting. Bar staff treated you as if they were doing you a favour by serving drinks. The bar also closed at 10pm on the dot. You could however buy drinks from the American bar that served traditional drinks such as gin, vodka, whisky etc. Food was geared towards the French who were in the majority. It was not very good very bland. Rooms were large and clean. Pool area was nice and clean and the entertainment staff tried their best to keep you entertained. The location was poor, nothing to do outside of the complex. Beach was full of litter and the Med wasn't the med I know and love. If you ventured out of the complex you got nothing but hassle from locals trying to sell you cheap cigarettes or jewellery. Met a great group of Brits though that made our holiday.
