“Excellent hotel can't wait to go back! Everyone should take the opportunity and visit Tunisia!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2011

We searched for a full board hotel in Hammamet that came within our very strict budget and Zodiac was the winner! I was cautious after reading so many poor reviews, but they are all WRONG!! What a lovely hotel, excellent service, friendly, helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were clean and comfortable the food was plentiful and good quality and the staff were happy to help. My husband and I wanted to have some time alone and the peaceful hotel grounds and pool were excellent! Wifi available in the reception area, well stocked and reasonably priced bar and quality catering. We were staying on a full board basis and due to the recent revolution and downturn in tourisim our holiday was very cheap. Our standard double room was £22.00 a night for two people on full board!!! Majority of guests seemed to be French or Algerian who are also enjoying the hospitality this lovely little hotel has to offer. Lovely clean pool and spa area - everything you could wish for a sunny break away!! Relax, soak up the sun and enjoy!
Tunisia has gone through a revolution and what I would say is how important it is the rest of the world support them in their success and return to Tunisia and bring it back to its former glory as a holiday destination. The locals rely very heavily on Tourisim and this has been massively effected by the Revolution and unemployment is escalating. I'm a frequent traveller to Tunisia because of family and I can honestly say its one of the most beautiful Arabic countries you can visit!

Room Tip: We had a standard double room with balcony.

What a great time we had at he Zodiac Hotel 4th to 10th December. The food, the staff, the rooms, the facilities were second to none. We are still amazed at how cheap it was!! Not every-one spoke English, but they made an effort, or found some-one who could translate. Ignore the complainers. The food was Tunisian, but there was always something for even the plainest eaters. Aldo, Billy and Chris of the animation team were great, and made us so welcome.

Myself and a friend stayed here for a fortnights last minute holiday at the end of august 2010. Admittedly it was quite cheap for a fortnights all inclusive trip. When we arrived it was approx 3am and were immediately greeted by a rather strange smell and the hotel was in almost complete darkness. Having been led along dark corridors we were quite happy when we got to the room although it was missing the fridge that was mentioned when booking and we were told the bar was closed so it was impossible to get a drink, or even a cup of coffee.

At lunchtime we were charged 1.75 dinar for a bottle of water even though we were all inclusive. It was only when we spoke with our rep that we were given the wristbands needed to identify ourselves as being all inclusive guests.

The "animation" staff were one of the most annoying features of this hotel, all day long they were shouting "waterpolo, volleyball, aerobics, darts" etc in a seeming attempt to get adults to join in the kids games. In the evenings we were continually pestered to attend their shows, which admittedly were worth it for the comedy value alone, ok they dont have much to work with, but they did try!!!

The service at the fly infested pool bar was horrendous. When they eventually decided that someone was able to serve us, it took on averegae 10 minutes for them to pour a couple of half pints of beer. On one occasion when we asked for 2 beers we were given only 1, we were informed that the bar closed just as they had finished pouring one of the drinks and if we wanted the 2nd we would need to go to the indoor bar! Now the indoor bar, well, the service was something else! The barman seemed to be terminally depressed. Each night the bar closed immediately at midnight, the lights all turned off no matter how many of their guests were sitting there, although when the lights were turned off there seemed less chance of being bitten by the resident mosquitoes. I was informed that he couldn't open another bottle of vodka as it was after 11pm so I could only have gin or beer.

There was plenty food always available in the restaurant at mealtimes although it would take a forensic detective to work out exactly what species of animal the meat was from, rabbit and camel seemed regular options. There was very little variation on what was available but it was good fun trying to figure out exactly what was on offer!

A word of warning to female guests, especially those with blonde hair. Some of the male staff would attempt to touch your hair at any chance they got, even when you are lying sleeping on a sun lounger.

You may notice most of the positive reviews for this hotel are in french. The staff at the hotel seemed only interested in the french guests, the few brits, italians, germans and polish who were staying are generally regarded as 2nd class. Even those of us who did attempt to speak french or even the odd word in arabic.

I would highly recommend not visiting this hotel or indeed tunisia during ramadan as we did, the staff get really grumpy as they day goes by due to them fasting and they get a bit jealous of the fact their paying guests are drinking and eating.

There is very little to do in the hotel or the resort other than sunbathing or shopping for counterfeit goods of which the many shops all seem to sell the same items. Avoid the non "fixed price" shops where they will literally grab hold of you and try and drag you in.

I can safely say we will NEVER return to Tunisia!!!!

We had a great time. What a friendly hotel, despite the fact that not everyone spoke english. They made us feel really welcome. Great selection of food at every mealtime and the desserts were second to none. Needless to say we both gained a few pounds as we were lucky enough to be there for a fortnight. Highly recommend it and we will definitely go back again. Marie & Steve, Leeds.

My friend and I stayed at Zodiac for a week in September, and since returning back to England our lives have not been the same. We have both said that this was quite simply the best holiday of our lives. The hotel is family owned and the staff could not possibly have been more accommodating. I am shocked to read negative reviews regarding the friendliness of the hotel staff - this simply cannot be. They were pleasant and helpful at all times.

The hotel is clean, spacious and the facilities are great. There is constant entertainment on offer, and the staff really do go out of their way to include you. I was suprised at my new love of water polo!

The food was quite simply stunning, and in Tunisia I understand that this is a rarity. I have an egg allergy, and the staff even pointed out each day which dishes I should avoid.

The only regret I have is that we only stayed for a week. As a result, I am now having to return again later in the year!

Many thanks to everyone at the Zodiac for making our stay so fantastic. We have made some amazing friends that we will never forget and we will definitely be returning.
