Located at the gateway to Southern Tunisia, literally two Turkish-slippered steps away from a beautiful beach, the Eden Beach hotel does not pretend to be more luxurious than it actually is. There is no ostentatious luxury here: simplicity reigns supreme. Nevertheless, the hotel has nothing to blush about in terms of facilities; its services are well worthy of a three-star hotel by Tunisian standards. Its good value for money makes it worth recommending to any kind of clientele.
The hotel is 8 mi from the centre of Zarzis, along the beach of Sangho. Allow about 45 minutes for transfers to and from Djerba airport. It's a perfect starting point for an excursion into the Tunisian desert!
There is no confusion possible here! Every guest benefits from the same accommodation standards as their neighbour and can enjoy the all-inclusive option available all year round. Note that a different show is performed every night: disco, chart music, cabaret, traditional Tunisian music, etc.
The entrance to the Eden Beach is very characteristic of its general ambiance: simple, with a few oriental touches here and there, enough to remind guests that they are in Tunisia. The same goes for the lobby, although here the decor is combined with marble, the material loved by so many hotels around the world! The entrance hall is a little dark, and despite the comfortable rattan chairs placed in each corner of the patio, you won't really want to spend any time here. A stairway leads to the ground floor and the outdoor terrace. You will find all of the facilities you could need for a successful holiday: sports grounds, a kids club, a playground, a miniature golf course and a splendid beach just a few dozen yards from the building. The hotel opened its doors in 2001 and was renovated twice, in 2004 and 2008. However, although the terrace, the outdoor stage and the spa underwent refurbishment, some facilities, such as the pool and kid's club, could really do with a makeover.
The 194 guestrooms confirm the general style of the hotel: simple decor punctuated by oriental touches (Berber rugs, wrought-iron mirrors and ceramics). Only two categories of rooms are available: standard and quadruple. They are not very spacious but are equipped with all of the amenities expected of a room in a 3-star hotel (satellite television, a safe available for a fee, a minibar on request, a terrace furnished with plastic furniture, a bench seat on request, a bathroom with a bathtub or shower and small bars of soap). The double beds are particularly small, however! The good news is that 90% of the rooms have a sea view, however, you will need to pay extra to benefit from this as it is considered a category in itself.
The Eden Beach hotel can certainly be proud of its beach and choice of activities, but the same cannot be said for its catering services. Only two restaurants welcome guests at meal times, and only one of these is open in high season. When the pool barbecue is closed, the only place left to eat is in the buffet restaurant. A selection of international dishes and a few local specialities are served in a large hall. Unfortunately, even in summer there is no terrace here where guests can eat their meals. The only place to get drinks at the beach is from a small stand, but guests can also try the restaurant of the neighbouring Eden Star.
There is no road separating the hotel from the splendid expanse of fine sand and the clear waters of the Sangho beach. The aptly-named Eden Beach has its feet in the water, and so have its guests! All of the usual facilities such as deckchairs and parasols are available to guests for free. Among the available water sports, only a handful are free of charge: windsurfing, kayaking, pedal boats and canoes. For an extra charge, guests can take part in motorised activities.
