My friend and I stayed at the hotel in march 2012.
It was a nightmare,the first day we got there all our lights in our room blew a fuse.
The second day,was a monday.,that was ok.
We decided that afternoon we would go to port el kantoui. That was fine,and we had a good taxi driver or so we thought called hassan.
He took us to port el kantoui,and into sousse showing us the great mosque.
Afterwards,he decided to take us to some shops,which we believed must have been his friends.
And they all got extremely angry,when didnt buy anything.
The second day was okish. We decided that we would like to see the tombs,and walk around the medina.
Thats when things really spoilt our holiday,whilst walking in the medina just passed the school I got mugged.
They took everything,my bag,camera,camcorder and £300.
I then spent the whole afternoon with my friend at the police station,looking at pictures and going in an armoured car to see if I could see my bag or the mugger.
Once I got back to the hotel,i told the hotel manager what happened,because I had to ring my insurance company.
They said it was a quite common occurance.
My thomas cook rep,said only weeks before someone had been dragged to the floor and was left with cuts and grazes.
I was lucky,but I didnt think so at the time.
I was petrified,so was my friend.
To top it all,we also had heavy rain for the last 4 days we were there with high winds of 100mph or more.
So we couldnt go out.
As for the hotel,it was ok.
I have spent quite a few holidays in tunisia,and this hotel is not 4 star.
Ive stayed in the tej marharba, a few hotels from el ksar.
That was far superia,and if I remember rightly that was 3 star.
The food was the same for the full 7 days,and all the meat had bones in and was tough.
The hotel staff were lovely,i have to admit.
Except for the three people who did trips,
Mr cripps the camel ride organiser was always after the main chance.
I would dearly love to go back to tunisia,but I would be always be watching my back.
