Great value, excellent service place clean as a whistle. Was pleasntly suprised by the quality of what was on offer. Food varied and well presented. drinks very pallatable staff helpful and freindly. Only the spa was a let down massage fo rme and facial for my partner. service good but surroundings a bit spartan and off putting. all in all great location lovely pool and beach will be back later than march next time when weater is mote certain.

Great location for the golf at El Kantaoui
The hotel was excellent. The staff were very helpful (especially if you gave them a small tip of a couple of Dinars - about 80p) once in a while. The food was really good - if anyone comes out of the Restaurant hungry there is something wrong with them! There was plenty of choice, from pancakes for breakfast to choice cuts of meat for dinner and Pizza or pasta cooked specially for you at dinner time.
Drinks were strong and definitely NOT watered down. The beer was good and nothing was too much trouble for the waiters - again a small occasional tip helped. We were a mixed party of 11 golfers who were accommodated in the Lounge or bar easily most nights. Entertainment every night was good and varied with speciality acts on occasion (extra cost).
The rooms were clean and comfortable but the hotel was a little 'tired' in places, However work is ongoing to upgrade the rooms (they were working on the 2nd floor when we were there).
The hotel is just a short walk to the town centre, either along the beach or along the road. No hassle from local population except the usual from those outside the restaurants asking you to visit their place - usual in most resorts around the world!.
All in all an excellent place to stay. Like Arnie - "We'll be back!"

Excellent Family holiday, value for money .
Overall experience was very good , great family holiday , good location and weather was not too bad in December, it was about 20 degree . Very good choices of food, helpful and welcoming staff. We didn't have any problem during our stay, so there was no negative thing to shout about apart from well being and spa. There was a charge to use these facilities . We have celebrated our New Years Eve party there in the hotel , it was well organised, food was excellent, seven courses meal was appreciated and enjoyed. Must say all the staff worked very hard. Entertainment was good . For this we didn't have to pay extra. Very, very value for money. Trip to Sahara desert safari was quite thrilling.
We were worried about the noise from the new constructions but we didn't hear anything inside the hotel.
Thank you so much for organising very good holiday !

Brilliant holiday for the 4th year
Welcoming and superb staff. Rooms spacious and clean with sun until sunset on the balcony after it sinks behind the hotel.
Only problem was the moaning of some visitors about anything, just because we had 3 cloudy days out of 21, and they had'nt got the inteligence to find anything better to do.
Complaints about entertainment, but if they wanted more, they should have gone to Butlins.
Our 4th consecutive visit for Christmas and New Year, and we would thoroughly recomend it for a relaxing and well serviced friendly break.

We have recently return from the Marharba Palace, Tunisia. This hotel is large but the food is excellent, plenty to chose from. spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
We were very apprehensive before going on holiday as Thomas Cook issued a warning about building work going on in the plot next to tne hotel, However we were upgraded on arrival, could not hear the building work and the whole two weeks were really good. The only drawback was in in house entertainment.
The Thomas Cook Rep was also very good and helpful at all times. Throughly recommend this hotel..

Ideal Location in Port El Kantoui
Ideally situated a short walk from the marina area in the resort, the hotel was probably better suited fo families and young couples rather older couples. Extensive pool area with plenty of activities going on and the hotel beach provided a quiet and pleasant alternative.
Easy and cheap access into the old medina in Sousse to wander around and try bartering for leather goods. If not too hot, a day trip to El Jem would be a must.
