Me, my boyfriend, my 6 year old daughter and 2 friends went to El Ksar in October, speedy check in and was happy with our room which had an adjoining door to our friends which was nice, only downside is that it was right outside the evening entertainment so if we didn't want to watch it we had no choice...

I went for two nights in March and it was an ok experience. The rooms were small but accommodating, no mini bar but good towels and comfy bed. I had an ocean view and was lovely. Elevators are fast and their is a nice nightclub in hotel. I am sure this is a great Holliday destination.

I travelled with my friend to the El Ksar in Feb 2014 - it was our second stay at this hotel. The room this time was much much better. The beds were large and the room was spacious with a great view of the sea and spa. The staff at this hotel are overall friendly. Kareem the porter is great!... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a week in August. When we got the the hotel we had to wait about two hours before we were able to check in which was a bit annoying as we were shattered from the flight and roasting. Once finally checking in, our room was a fair size. A bit basic but perfect... More

This was our first trip to Tunisia and we were looking for a relaxing time in the sun, going out on a few excursions and seeing some good evening entertainment. Unfortunately not everything went to plan. We arrived at the hotel about 2 AM, after what seemed like an endless wait getting through passport control at the airport and a... More

This is our 3rd time to El Ksar and had yet another great holiday here. Don't believe all the bad reviews on here this hotel is one of the best and to be honest it is personal preferences what some people don't like others do. We stayed in one of the newly decorated rooms on the 1st floor which had... More

We arrived in the early hours of the morning, not the best time to arrive anywhere. We were quite dismayed to be told we had a bungalow room, as had read some negative reviews regarding these. However, after collecting some bottled water from the dingy discothèque we followed a security guard to our room. Only one light was working, but... More

Always very welcoming and as it should be. Just don't take a promotional room :) I was there in September 2012 for the first time and then the food wasn't that great, but went back in February 2013 and the new cook made the food a lot better.
