I married in July 1996, and was going to Tunisia in the December of that year. All excited I booked my ticket in married name all proud :rolleyes: then realised 2 days before Christmas eve that my passport didn't match and I was travelling on boxing day aaarrrggghhhh....So after numerous phone calls of what was needed I went to Petty France (where they used to issue the passports) with my French copy of our marriage certificate, explained everything they issued me a new passport BUT had translated my name wrong!!!! So I then had to phone BA and explain that my ticket still didn't match my name, I ended up taking my birth certificate, marriage certificate new passport, old passport, and ticket!!!!! 2nd and 3rd letter of my surname are "EU" which they translated to "A" so my name is still different from my now EX and my sons :( Never been questioned in Tunisia when checking in......

not surprised, I get questioned about my stamps all the time. "why'd you go to Egypt?' lol! Errrrrr, well Mr officer, they have something called pyramids! Big giant triangle things....like the Luxor except it's made from big stones and was built a few thousand years ago!!

Middle of nowhere, hotel area.

Midway between Sousse & Monastir.

Been refurbished, food was crap - but its 3 star. Buffet style.

Small hotel, staff was good when i last stayed - although not the same people there now.

Worth going if you want a quiet break. If you are planning to go into Sousse / Monastir daily i wouldnt stay there. Although the Liberty just down the road is better :D and they were quite cheap last i looked.
