Excellent relaxing holiday
We had a wonderful relaxing holiday at this hotel, found all the staff friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in a great location and has everything you could want for a perfect relaxing holiday. I've seen a few comments complaining about smokers in certain areas, neither me nor my partner smoke and never have and we didn't find it a problem at all, smoking is allowed in some places but the majority is still nonsmoking. Would definitely return to this hotel! Food was always great, although sometimes fairly similar to the previous meal, there was still such a large selection that there was always something new to try or a safe option like pizza and chips!

This hotel should carry a Government Health Warning.
The only indoor bar (piano bar) is a smoking area. Non-smokers have to sit in reception!, where you can still smell the smoke as the door from the bar is open and there is no ventilation.
The snack bar near the pool has an ashtray on every table, as does the snack bar at the beach, and they are well used.
The food was average. The Irish Bar is not in the hotel complex, as it implies and therefore a charge is made for all services.
Halfway through our stay the hotel decided to charge 10dr for beach towels which was non refundable, just another money making scheme.
On a positive note, the hotel is in a central position, the rooms are clean and most of the staff are pleasant and helpful, but will not be going back.
The hotel is in a good position as regards the centre of Port El Kantaoui

NON SMOKERS BEWARE!
Stayed at this hotel June 2014. The staff are very pleasant and the hotel is in a good spot but cannot get away from smokers. They allow smoking in the bar which most hotels do not. The only no smoking areas are reception and bedrooms. The food is average, unless you like eggs. This hotel gives the impression there is a pub on site BEWARE this is not part of the all inclusive package. Entertainment could be improved.
Also beach towels are not now part of the all inclusive.
It is a shame so much negative feedback is given here as the staff do try hard and are very helpful unlike the manager who does not feel as though there is a problem. Will not be going back. Dont be put you off Tunisia. Stayed at several hotels in Tunisia and never found a problem.

Holiday ruined by food poisoning, rude staff and bad weather
This was our third time at the Kanta which we have always enjoyed in the past.
Weve had stomach problems on all three occasions which we feel much be down to poor food hygiene. After 4 nights we decided that we would eat out the rest of the holiday but the damage to my stomach had already been done.
The breakfast is continental + eggs - scrambled, fried and omlettes. There is no bacon etc. The bar snacks are good. the evening buffet is not to my taste but the kids were ok with it. At £800 p.p for 14 nights it is good value but when your ill in bed for two days and feeling ill the rest of the time the value is gone.
Constant siging for AI drinks/food etc is not needed and gets annoying after 7 nights. After 6 days of taking my breakfast coffee out to the pool the waiters decided to stop me - I then had to use my cap to "smuggle" a coffe out for the remainder of the holiday.!!
When my wife was ill I took her some toast/coffee and yoghurt only to be challenged by the waiter - I ignored him - took it up and then returned for an argument with the manager who was at best rude.
We would no longer recommend the Kanta other than for being cheap. But its not worth it.
Needless to say we wont be going back.

Great hoilday for families,couples young, middle aged and old
My wife and I had a great time.Everything was good. Hotel, Staff, Service,Amenities were all very good. Especially liked the Piano Bar which was friendly and very comfortable. We are seriously thinking of booking again as we enjoyed it so much. The wife even joined in the water exercises which is amazing

Great Relaxing holiday!
Me and My Girlfriend, both 20, stayed from the 13th - 20th July 2013, and despite some reviews giving it a bad rep, we loved it! ... The food was lovely, although selection at times was not great for a fussy eater, I always had around 2/3 plates full! Desert for a nut allergy sufferer was also fine, plentiful selection however, nothing to state what the desert actually is which can be annoying for someone with a nut allergy. my girlfriend would try what was on my plate to ensure that no nuts were in what I had picked, and 98% of the time, there wasnt.
Our room was spotless, with maid service daily, and complimentary toiletries. Yet the courtesy room to shower before leaving (night flight) had a cockroach in! The pool areas were also very clean and daytime activies were adequate.
nightime entertainment was great until 11PM then the Hotel seemed to die a little, but the Piano bar opens till 1am so not bad at all!
4/5 holiday overall!
