Staff very helpful, Great location
We stayed at Chich Khan for 10nights starting the 8th July and just arrived home two days ago, it was our first time in Tunisia and we would recommend it after our experience. The location of the hotel was great, the beach only 5mins or less away, a couple of English bars/restaurants nearby also. There was also a lot of fixed price shops, great for people who aren't confident with bartering in the markets, however if you do like bartering, the Medina (the big market) is 5mins down the road from the hotel.
The hotel itself was impressive, the rooms were decent although they weren't always thoroughly cleaned, we requested a high room with a pool view which we were granted as soon as we checked in, and the view really was amazing!
The staff on reception, in the bars and restaurants were always cheerful and helpful.
The food was good at best, a lot of the food is made in front of you which is great but sometimes it could be quite repetitive, the breakfast was a big let down, no bacon or sausage which was a shame.
There was a few men selling excursions in the hotel, they could get quite pushy if you weren't too interested in doing the trips, but when you do say no they do leave you be.
Our rep, Alice, was great, her meeting on the morning of our second day was thorough and very helpful and if we ever needed more info she was always helpful with her answers. Near the end of our holiday my boyfriend had a problem with his ear and she was great chasing up the doctor and checking he was feeling better after he'd been which we were really happy with.
Overall we really enjoyed our time here and do hope to return sometime in the future, plus the weather was absolutely brilliant! Not a cloud in sight! :)

This hotel is wonderful. It is clean and well maintained, and is situated very close to a lovely beach. The food was great, a wide variety, though be warned that if you are hoping for 'English' food you will be disappointed as what is offered is a more local cuisine.
The staff were also top notch. Very friendly and welcoming. In particular the Animation Team were great. They made the holiday as far as my children were concerned.
My only quibble was that the outside pool is unheated and was too cold to swim in, but this was minor as you could swim in the indoor pool.

Great family holiday at Chich Khan hotel - Tunisia
Had a fab holiday. The staff especially the waiters, they really looked after you. Animation team were great, put on a few good shows. They are really good with the children getting them involved in the activities. Hotel was spotless at all times. Food was great a good variety to choose from at all meal times. This is our second holiday there defiantly going back again. Can recommend this hotel to anyone. My son loved indoor pool as well as outdoor he was in them both all day everyday.

The staff at this hotel are brilliant, mainly the bar staff and waiters. Friendly kind and personal service. The facilities in the hotel are great, we didn't perticular lot like the food but there is a lot of choice. Great value for money. Be careful walking around a lot of people keep coming up to you trying to trick you, we got out the taxi at hammamet and within 2 minutes had 5 different people try and tell us they worked at our hotel. Also little tip for excursions the nebul market is a good one to see, but we didn't want to pay 60 Dinar to go there and the chateu, we got a taxi to the market for 17.5 Dinar one way, much cheaper. There's some great fixed price shops along the road where the hotel is

Not 4 star quality
This hotel would struggle to obtain a 3 star rating in the UK. Stained & worn carpets throughout the hotel, carrying a musky, stale smell. Hotel in need of a complete renovation including replastering, painting & rewiring.
The entertainment consisted of broken down equipment with missing pieces, that required payment.
Animation team were a set of serial predators; only ever talking to my wife in my absence or trying to chat up single women/ mothers and ignoring any effort to involve children in activities.
Food was average, but musky smell of restaurant and dirty tablecloths was enough to anyone off.
Being harassed to take part with excursions in the hotel lobby was the worst and most intrusive I've EVER experienced in all my holidays abroad. I've travelled to Egypt, Turkey, Cancun & Morocco.
On a positive, staff was friendly enough & room size was a plus. Although, with one maid to clean the whole hotel, don't expect a thorough clean room.

Great Hotel VALUE FOR MONEY, helpful staff.
The hotel was great one of the best offered through Thomas cook speaking to guests staying at other hotels. Located at the more tourist end of town close to the beach but not on it. The staff were amazing very helpful at all hours!! The room cleaner so the best 2 mid 20s lads clothes and shoes everywhere beds unmade, came in everyday beds made clothes folded and placed on bed, room clean. Food was great, only downside is when the Tunisian families stay they take all the food from the Buffet service so you have to wait for more to be cooked. The entertainment staff are always around and friendly.
The major downside is the package trips generally want add ons during the trip as well which i don't see the point in paying for a day trip and then paying for an activity inside that trip!!!! or extra to take a photo.
The local shopkeepers as expected are always trying to rip you off but thats standard when you go to a lot of places all over the world.
WIFI only available in Lobby but is completely FREE.
