Cercina Hotel is such a contrast to the giant package tour hotels of Sousse & Monastir. The setting is perfect. It is small and Kerkennah Islands in general are very quiet with not much to do apart from relax. The rooms at Cercina open directly onto the shallow sea, and there is a nice outdoor seating area beside each room.... More

It is a nice place to eat a fish and octopus meal in Sfax . Especially if the waiter who services you Mr. Anis who has a board smile and superior activity . Just there is a problem with the price:100 TD for 1 kg of fish! !!!!!

In being keen to get our custom (and pretending to understand English), the duty manager mistakenly agreed to give us a lovely room at a dirt cheap price. Unknowingly we couldn't believe our luck - until we got hit with a massive bill on checking out. They agreed to lower this a fraction, because of the misunderstanding, but we still... More

This is very hard to score, since some of the aspects of this hotel are fantastic; location, lovely food (apart from the shockingly bad breakfast), nice rooms (not the budget ones) and it couldn't really be much quieter and more relaxed. HOWEVER some of the service was diabolical and even insulting, the young girl at reception was actually a disgrace... More

After getting the last ferry from Sfax to the Island, we stumbled upon the Cercina after taking a look at some of the other hotels that were open. The place has a really good vibe and is located right on the beach. The receptionist was welcoming and gave us a little discount, with the room coming to 80 dinars (ca... More

I had the misfortune of going back to Cercina hotel this year expecting the same standard of service and food as last year. The food was far from appetizing and I had to wait on two or three occasions for a very very long time to attract the attention of the waiting staff who seem to be moving like mute... More

If you want luxury and fine dinig this isn't for you, but if you want rustic, simplicity away from it all it is fantastic. The food at the restraunt a stone's throw from our chalet was simple, fresh and incredibly tasty. The oeuf de seche (squid eggs) llok like gnocchi and taste like the tendereest calamari in the world.

I booked a room by telephone and faxed confirmation in June for a room in August 2008. 3 days before I was due to arrive in Tunisia the hotel phoned me to concel the booking due to a shortage of rooms! This left me without accommodation for my holiday as August is very busy on kerkennah.

If you like resort hotels, crowded, noisy beaches, hawkers, clubbing, or being one of the herd, then KERKENNAH ISLAND is NOT for you. Situated off the east coast of Tunisia, you'll need to take a minibus taxi (known as a louage) to Sfax, two hours south of Monastir/Sousse. This will cost you 7TD (£3) one way! Then take the frequent... More
