Some countries have their own star rating system, as does Tunisia. Generally, when they say 5 stars, I'd say 4 and so on. My husband and I just returned from our 4th stay at La Residence. It's really a world class 5 star property. Overview: The hotel facade is lovely, and well cared for. The lobby cool and elegant. The...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a travel agent educational. We pulled up around a lavish fountain at the entrance to The Residence and the staff immediately took our bags. We were taken to a desk where our room key cards were waiting, along with our times for the spa, mine being 5 and 5:30pm...

We picked the Residence for a number of reasons, some that only parents will understand. Short flight, Powder Byrne English nannies on site, sun in October and the connection with the Residence in Mauritius. As a destination for a quick sun break in october for both parents and kids I can't fault it. No it isn't 5* deluxe luxury but...

Booked the hotel based on its reputation in Mauritius and the fact it has a spa. We were not disappointed. Our room, a view over the pool was lovely especially in the morning as it faced east and we were greeted the first morning by the rising sun as we took breakfast on the balcony. My fiance and I booked...

We stayed at The Residence in Tunis for 11 days at the end of September arriving back in England on 3rd October. The hotel fell slightly short of our expectations and that of other guests we met whilst staying there. We will not be going back mainly due to both of us going down with 'Tunis Tummy!' Staff within the...

We went for a week in search of sunshine to celebrate a 'significant' birthday. The 4x4 that took us from the airport offered both iced water and cold facecloths - nice touch. We booked a suite which was vast and lovely; it contained flowers, a large living room with sofa, two chairs and coffee table along with a dining table,...

The room is charming, the staff are excellent, nice choice of food. Beach is great. The hotel isa bit out of the way of anything so taxi rides have to be taken. Spa is 'functional' and over priced. Check if you are happy for a man to give you treatments - comes as a bit of a shock if you...

A previous reviewer complained that the seaview was disappointing because the sea was so far away...Between the hotel rooms and the sea are very extensive gardens and a very wide beach - to me that extra space is a welcome luxury! The Residence is a good choice for a romantic short (or long, of course) break and its proximity to...

Just returned from a wonderful break at The Residence, Tunis, booked through the Leading Hotels website.

We've just returned from 11 nights at La Residence in Tunis with our kids, 8 and 5. Overall the hotel was great for what we needed but the weather was very mixed. Supposedly it isn't consisently settled until late April in N Tunisia. The rooms are very nice but you'd expect that for this price. The view from our room...
