This was our second visit here, as before the views, the hotel, the staff and service, the scenery, the weather, the sea water and fish were as before excellent with no complaints ---BUT---------- The food was dreadful, bland, repetative and worse of all dangerously underheated. Cooked meat and fish were ketp in metal containers which were opened constantly by guests (as is expected) but some were heated bu parafin.wax tubs ubder the containers to keep the food hot (THEY DID NOT!!!) beware of cooked meat, fish anything with sauces, even the pasta meat sauce was not cooked for long enough. The worse was chicken kept in this type of container (see photo). My wife had to visit the Medical Clinic twice for sickness and diorreah and had to take tablets each day for 6 days. I was struck down for the first time, even after visiting Tunisia 6 times). Potential visitors beware and take medication with you. Anyone reading this who also suffered, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org (April 17 - 24). We comlained to the Hotel Asst Manager, another manager doing a walkabout survey and the Thomson Rep (all gave varied excuses, I was unhappy that I never once saw the temperatures in the containers monitred and was concerned regarding birds being allowed to flay around the restaurant areas.
