We are a German/Tunisian couple and were asked to provide a marriage certificate. As in other countries with similar requirements, the workaround for nonmarried partners is to book two rooms (ask for a heavy discount for the second one). Not sure if the same requirement applies to non-Tunisian couples.
Either way, the hotel is fantastic and deserves all the praise it has received from others. SUPER clean rooms. Excellent gym. The staff is EXCEPTIONAL and the facilities are second to none. In the (unexpectedly rainy) month of May '23, it was packed on weekends but less so on weekdays – it seemed as if the indoor pool was only fully heated on weekends. Everything else seemed to be of the same high quality, whether weekend or weekday.
According to staff, most guests are Tunisian and Algerian, plus some from GCC countries and significantly lower numbers from Europe. However, especially as a European, I found the hotel and the location to be PERFECT. If you are NOT only interested in beach life (go to the eastern coast for that) but also love to explore the culture and people of Tunisia, then this is THE place to go to. Aside from seeing Tabarka and its fort, you should rent a car (EU driver’s license suffices) and discover the beautiful green mountains of the Jendouba Governorate… go to the markets in Bou Salem and Ain Draham, or visit the tiny Beni M’tir which even has a small waterfall. It is the perfect location for those who do not just want to be "getting-a-tan tourists".
