“good value for money”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Went end of March, weather not to good first few days, the pool was just being filled with water, was told we would be able to use it the next day and true to there word we could, rooms a little tired could do with decorating but every day maid service cleaned and towels being etc was changed, food was good warm and enough choice for everyone. Staff all very friendly could not do enough for you, entertainment throughout the day and night the entertainment guys were really good, all in all great value for money am going back later this year,

Very good value for money. Only a three star, but excellent staff, meals and room.
Not plush, but spacious clean room. Good food and nice friendly staff.
Perfect beach and great pool. Shops close by, but found the bank in the Hotel gave a better exchange rate. Noddy train at the entrance to the hotel to take you to the Port El Kantoui. Perfect.
Pleasure to give an up beat review, too many reviewer wanting to pay for a three star but want 5 star, not logical.

I stayed here for 14 nights on January 2014 . I stayed in the Jinene hotel but ended up having dinner in the restaurant for the Jinene and the restaurant for the Royal Jinene .

The food was lovely a bit bland for some but with hotel food I think better to be plain as some people have different food requirements or allergies.

In both restaurants they had chefs cooking fresh food like crepes, omelettes , chicken and other lovely food . The chefs were very talented and made the food to your own personal requirements!

Rooms very large and spacious and again very good value for money maids are lovely, friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble.

Great animation team of 3 animators when I stayed at this hotel lovely and entertaining and had a great way with the children and included all children of different ages on the evening songs and dances and adults were involved too.

A lovely holiday at a relaxing hotel lovely rooms and indoor swimming pool and excellent value for money!!

Will definetly be staying there in the future as only 5-10 mins from Sousse centre so great for all the shops and lovely white sand beaches surrounding this area :))

Well what can I say about the royal jinene hotel. I will start by saying ignore all of the bad reviews the staff were all amazing and helpful, one tooth around the pool was so nice and helpful an so was the entertainment guys throughout the day especially Joe. The food was really tasty and the staff in the dining area were so nice. I would highly recommend the massage package that they have for 100 dinar it lasts about 2.5 hours which includes a lovely 50 minute massage at the end. All of the staff are on really poor wages as you would expect so if you give them the odd tips now and again it is really appreciated. You do not get a full English breakfast but I would recommend the omelettes they are gorgeous. I think the only let down is the drinks they only have 2 spirits booka and this other nasty tasting drink. The lager is very nice though but not sure about the coffee cups they serve it in. We got our own drink on the plane and the staff behind the bar were happy to serve us that. Would I go back there ? Yes I would we had a wonderful time and was made that way by all the good staff that they have got there. Thank you to all for a great holiday.

Having just arrived back from a 10 day all inclusive holiday this is what we found....

Rooms spacious and cleaned daily, bedding clean daily, towels changed every other day, had a sea view (and was woken at 3.30am most days by the local cockerel) set table for all meals which is good as can get rather busy at times, food was repetitive but cooked well, not much catering for the English but never went hungry.
Drinks were served in very small glasses and cups, only limited choice of red/white wine, beer and 2 local liquor's.
Every one expects to be tipped....!!!! BEWARE OF THE AIRPORT PORTERS !!!!!!! there is a large notice up to say if you tip then no more than 3/4 Dinar....but they were DEMANDING ENGLISH NOTES ONLY......tell them to sod off....!!!

Finally after praising AND TIPPING the maid who came to us all the time we were there I found out on the plane coming back that she had STOLEN £10 out of my purse that was left in my bag which was hidden under clothing in the back of the wardrobe.....thankfully that was all that was in my purse as they cannot exchange coins so they were of no use to her...my advise is if you are going then use the safe facilities

Ooh sorry just 2 more points....the massages were EXCELLENT and the lads doing the entertainment were HILARIOUS they did a fab job with what they were given to work with, will have you in stitches. ...

we arrived at the jinene sunday 27th of april on arrival we was given our key and not told where the room was :@ room was good and spacious exept it needed a god hoover as the missus says. most of the staff where brilliant yo have a set table where you dine all week which was good. the food was good for first few days but you can only have the same thing over and over for so long before it gets boring.
we went on an excursion every day i found that booking with the guys round the pool i could haggle them down and managed to get many of them nearly half the price the rep wanted.

the hotel was mainly full of dutch french and german people but i didnt mind as i speak to anyone was quiet a laugh after a few cocktails and beers attempting conversation in the bar.

if you want a cheap all inclusive relaxing holiday with great weather i would recommend coming here dont expect 5 star but the hotel was really good for the price

Room Tip: if you want wifi in your room ask for room 102, 103 or 108 as we found in our room 108 we could get...

We booked this hotel very cheap at a hotel website. After reading the mixed reviews i didnt know what to expect. We stayed here for 7 days half board.
Check inn was very quick and very friendly my husband is from Tunisia but the man behind the desk also could speak English.
The roomsize was good with 3 beds with clean sheets. They were changed every day.
The towels were also changed every day.
In the dinning room you got the same table every day which we found ok.
Breaksfast was till 09.30 which was great so we didnt have to get up too early. There was plenty and something for everybody. All sorts of bread, yoghurt, cereals, you could ask a cook to make an omlet. There was really plenty not what happens in many hotels when you are a bit later there is not much left.
At dinner time there was also plenty and something for everybody fish, chicken, meat and lots of veg.
They had a great sweet corner with little cayks, some cream stuff which was marvelous and fruit.
The people who were selling the trips are a nuisance. As soon as my daughter and I were walking around they would talk to you they would move away quickly as soon as my husband came. We had a good laugh about that.
Would we stay in this hotel again we all 3 would say Yes.
We stayed in the Jinene Resort and not the Royal.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony. We had a look at the other rooms without but they were very dark.
