Just got back from the houda golf hotel yesterday, wasnt impressed on how long we had to wait till we got into our rooms, over 5 bloody hours, the dinner hall was rubbish, not alot of selection for my young children, unless they had pasta or chips for 2 weeks, flies bloody paradise,our bed sheets got changed once in 2 weeks, the tunis holiday makers were sods,our waiter ali was very rude too, had to take my daughter to the doctors today because she is so ill, the only good thing about that… Read Full Review

Houda Golf and Beach Hotel. September 2012 If you require a holiday with reasonable service, reasonable food and the opportunity to get some sleep at night, DO NOT book in to this hotel. This is a cheap hotel trying to make a profit from the all inclusive market by cutting corners at every opportunity. Please be aware, that, at this hotel “in inclusive” includes swarms of flies and food poisoning. Any one booking into this hotel does so at their own risk. Thomas Cook should be ashamed for… Read Full Review

Went to the Houda Hotel last year in early August and was not dissapointed. The entrance to the hotel is something out of a movie!
Came with 3 other people.
The all inclusive deal is very good, food is available most of the time, all the junk you can eat. The food aint too bad if your expectations arent sky high. Entertainment was GREAT. They did a wicked Micheal Jackson tribute and added loads of backdrops and smoke to fit the dances.
The hotel room was basic but clean and conditioned. Anyone… Read Full Review

We visit Tunisia yearly, sometimes twice a year, we always stay in The Abou Sofiane in Port el Kantaoui, after our stay this year and during the Volcano issue we were transferred by Thomas Cook, to The Houda Beach in Skanes for one week.
Oh My God, what an awful place. To be fair the grounds are great, the gardens colourful and the pool area really fab! But the rooms were awful, dirty, smelly...just awful! The toilet leaked, the shower curtain had totally lost its 'water-proof quality' so… Read Full Review

My partner and I have just returned from The Houda Beach Hotel in Skanes after an extended stay due to the Volcano stuff! The Hotel was clean and tidy as were the rooms. The Staff were great and the Animation team were fab (never forget seeing Willy and Mido dressed as Batman and Robin riding a mule around the lovely ground!). These boys and girls worked so hard to keep everyone amused and the kids seemed to loved them.
The only down side was the food which seemed fine when we fristed arrived… Read Full Review

i have never queued so much in my life...queue to eat queue to drink queue to go to toilet...i was really dissapointed the food was awful because of queues it was always cold when you sat down, if there was anything in the dishes it was the same old dross everyday but more often than not the hotplate was empty and we had to wait for more food to be brought out, the hotel staff were miserable and the rooms were at best basic, the smell from our bathroom permeated the whole room, if it wasn't for… Read Full Review

Good points, An english lady who has worked there for 16yrs, and the Thomas Cook rep. Bad points, although we did tip most staff they also try getting you to give them more by constantly complaining to you, one waiter spent at least 4 days trying to get my husband to give him his trainers. One flower boy asked for money so he could pay his boss, this is not the sort of thing I wish to contend with on holiday as I have saved for over 12 months to pay for it, I assume I should be allowed to relax… Read Full Review

The queue for food was ridiculous. By the time you had queued for chips the queued again for your meat your meal ended up being cold. The carvery was a joke. There were approx 300 people in the restaurant and every one wanted chips but they only had 2 places were the chips were served. The chips basically lasted about 3 or 4 mins then you had to wait until the chef brought/cooked some more.
The entertainment was basic. No professional acts on, it was the animation team trying there best to… Read Full Review
