Fanstastic value for money. The only extras were for suncream, one excursion, postcards and a massage at the hotel next door. After a year of holidays just in and around the UK it was a huge relief to venture out of the UK and visit a country I'd never considered before. Abou Sofiane is the perfect place for a week...

Just returned this morning from a week at the Abou Sofiane and have already priced for a two week holiday for next September. Staff were wonderful and as always a very small tip worked wonders, Entertainment was amazing, the Michael Jackson show was absolutely awesome, and nothing was too much trouble to make sure we had a wonderful holiday.

This is the first time we have visited Tunisia and staying at the Abou Sofiane made it practically perfect. Having checked reviews here on trip advisor before booking we were hoping for something special and we were not disappointed. Everything about this hotel was excellent, the cleanliness, the food (although not a massive choice) and all the staff. People there... More

I will start with the good stuff......the rooms are spotless, the chambermaids, couldn't be better, these ladies deserve a small tip (or your left over nice shampoo etc, as shampoo and shower gell costs a fortune over there).

First the positive points. Staff very friendly and hard working to keep the guests happy. Rooms were basic but clean and quiet. The down side is the worst food and drink we have ever had and I didn't think we were fussy eaters. We both experienced stomach problems which still haven't cleared 2 days after out return home, and we... More

Just returned from this hotel on 31 Aug. Had great time. Was not sure what to expect because the hotel was rated as a 3* but when we got there we loved every minute of it.

We stayed here last year too. The entertainment team were better last year. However, after we gave some constructive feedback on their forms, things started to change for the better. The best advice I can add to all the other reviews is TIP...TIP...TIP!! If you tip waiters and bar staff in advance, they up the (already acceptable) service levels. We... More

I spent a week at the Abou Sofiane mid August and the first thing i can say is that it was not long enough!! I had an amazing time!!!!! Value for money - the holiday cost £615 for a week.
