“Great Holiday”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I have just returned from a holiday and had a great time. The Hotel was rated as a 4 star but i would have said it was more a 3+, the hotel was very clean and the staff very friendly,the entertainment guys were great and always encouraging guests of all ages to join in the various activities. A couple of downsides to this hotel were the food was the same most days although there was always something you could find to eat. The al-a-carte restaurant was awful and i ended up leaving my meal and returning to the main restaurant to have dinner there. The Hotel does not switch on the air conditioning in the rooms until June and as it was very warm in the evenings I had to sleep with the balcony doors open which led me to being bitten a few times and was not Ideal. They also advertise a free hammam which is actually only a swim in the indoor pool and a sit in the steam room which was a bit disapointing, but on the whole the pro's outway the cons and i would return to this hotel again. On a lighter note I did ask if i could have a sea view and they put me on the 3rd floor so i could see the sea above the palm trees which made me laugh.

Room Tip: Had a room overlooking the pool area so had the sun from early morning for most of the day.

My only complaint is that I did not stay longer. This was my first time going All Inclusive and everything outlined in the advert was spot on. The Hotel was beautiful and the cleanliness was second to none. I was a bit dubious about trying the food, but the variety was impeccable with so much to choose from, I couldn't catch my breath. The food was cooked from fresh and catered for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike. I was happy to stay on the resort as there was so much to do, as this was a holiday of relaxation and boy did I relax. indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzi, sauna, and spa treatments, entertainment, unlimited drinks. what more do you want.

Room Tip: ground floor may be a little noisy especially when workers were out early morning. but this was not...

All inclusive is what it says. Local beers and wine is included and both are very palatable. The service was first class, accommodation was comfortable. Other than sublime, what can one say about the food. Meat dishes were very succulent and the cakes were out of this world. An excellent stay and we'll worth the a visit

Room Tip: Either a pool view and a bit noisy or a room at the back that is quiet

I am just back from a week in the El Ksar hotel and would recommend it to anyone. It has a very medieval feel on the outside but is warm and inviting inside. The staff were all very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. The range of food available could not be faulted and there is something for everyone with freshly prepared pasta and pizza dishes to order. The grounds of the hotel were well kept and I seen maintenance staff touching things up all through the holiday to keep things looking fresh. The pool water was freezing but it was out of season so not really a fault of the hotel. The beach is a stones through away and because it is private you don't need to fight for a lounger. The entertainment staff were second to none and were encouraged to interact with guests around the pool and also in the restaurant. They all spoke numerous languages and were full of energy. I was there for a relaxing holiday but still joined in with the pool side games because the entertainers made them so much fun. The hotel is very well placed and only a 20 minute walk to the Medina and there are restaurants on the main road a 2 minute walk away. Definitely worth a visit, whether it's a family trip with children or couples!!!!!!!

I have been to a lot of countries for holidays and was a bit apprehensive about going to Tunisia. Should not of been now I have been.

The staff have a wide speak a range of languages and there was a wide variety of nationalities in the hotel. It was one of the best holidays I have had, the weather was glorious, the people are so friendly, the hotel was delightful everything and more I read up about. The food speaks for it's self as I put on half a stone in a week.

There is still renovation work being done with very minimal distrubtion to guests. The hotel was clean, well decorated and staff could not do enough for you and even had drinks delivered to us on beach what more could you want from a holiday and cannot wait to come back again.

There really is no need to leave the complex as entertainment was good also. If you do be careful if you go on a trip they do try and get you to buy photos etc

I had two massages in the health spa and again that is a must for a complete relaxation holiday.

It certainly helped my self esteem all the nice attention I received and would throughly recommend couples, group of friends and families to go as it was fantastic value and leaves you wanting more!!! Will definately go again thank you very much.

Room Tip: Three girls shared a three bedded room and that was sufficient for our needs as we were out all day...
