Have visited this hotel many times on business trips. Great rooms, quiet, and excellent food and service if eating in.

If you are going to spend some time near tunis I can very much recommend this hotel. The attitude of the staff is first class, the food excellent and the spa one of the most extensive I have visited anywhere. Our room was also very comfortable. Well done to all

This is a great option for luxury holidays. Relaxing atmosphere and friendly, helpful, professional staff. I think it’s a bit too far from Tunis for business travel (Taxi is at least 10 dinars, and during peak hour the commute could be around an hour). Make sure you have time for hammam, pool and other spa-services. You can also walk down...

I was only here for one night and did not get to really enjoy this hotel but from the little I saw it was amazing. I had a room that looked out just the way the picture shows. At night they light the area up and it is beautiful early in the morning. I remember eating breakfast there and that...

Really loved the hotel. Rooms are beautiful, restaurants are wonderful. Was there in Jan 2012, and it is clear that Tunis in general needs more tourists. A few small issues: Elevator had a bad smell all week and I got stuck in it the day I was checking out. Service is amazing though. The spa is huge and lovely, but...

We had a wonderful experience at The Residence Tunis. They were extremely accommodating. The nicest hotel I have ever stayed in!!! Their golf course was amazing. The attention to detail was incredible. The lobby was gorgeous! The room was cleaned multiple times a day and the towels were changed out a couple times a day to make sure they were...

Overall, very good. I enjoyed my stay which was for business. This is not really a business hotel, its about 20-25 min drive to the city, but a great retreat after the end of a business day, and a pleasant place to wake up and enjoy the scenery, and spa before the start of business. Staff are very courteous, and...

Great hotel we had a lovely room overlooking the sea. Huge pool perfect for chilling out with a good book. Great golf course across the road. Only grumble would be the food, the Chinese restaurant was poor which only left L'Olivier. This restaurant served good meditaranean food but for a 5* star hotel I felt their should have been more...

It's a wonderful hotel, with a beatiful architecture! It has the best Spa in Tunis and the best chineese restaurant "Li Bai"! The rooms are spacy and very comfy and they have a really good staff! The hotel is situated close to the best night clubs in tunis and has its own golf club! On the other side, you need...

The hotel gives a full 5* service--good, complimentary room service, room cleaning twice a day, nice bathroom, helpful staff, fantastic common amenities. The hotel felt less than half full (probably true) when we stayed there in August for 3 nights, so it felt like we had practically everything to ourselves; only one other person was in the indoor salt water...
