“GOOD VALUE CENTRAL HOTEL”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I had been to this resort hotel two years ago with a friend on "ALL INCLUSIVE" basis, but found quality of free drinks etc was below standard and generaly AVERAGE standard with lot of East European clients. This time though I was booked in another hotel, Agency had to offer this hotel option as other two hotels were going to remain closed from November, probably due to lack of tourists visiting Sousse in off-peak season.
So, on half board, single sea facing room, booking was provided. Hotel was looked about 30% occupancy level. Food was averarge to fairly ok. Service was average. Best part about the hotel was location on cornice and very near in the centre of Sousse. Easy distance to railway station or Madina. But rates paid, one cannot complain. Very good value for money.

My wife and i stayed at this hotel 13-20th oct 2012 and found it very unpleasant. We booked a seaview room but upon arriving in the early hours of the morning we were given our keys an shocked to find we were given a dirty city view room ,after a sleepless night we went to reception to complain and were told our room was taken up by a local judo team who were in the process of leaving,we managed to get a better seaview room later that day. We were just as shocked when we went for lunch , the tablecloths were all dirty (which continued all week) there was such a lack of food choice and it was so repetative everyday,sometimes desert was just pears an nothing else and most days the food was lukewarm and the microwave didn't even work.The entertainmemt staff were non existant,and some of the poolbar staff staff were so ignorant,the first time i ordered a couple of drinks the barman poured them out at the other end of the bar an told me to fetch them myself.The pillows were rockhard and made for an unpleasant nights sleep.The hotel has its own part of the beach across the busy road although you have to pay daily for use of sunloungers.Do not venture out the back of the hotel as its as its a very dirty and disgusting area

Stayed at the hotel 22/08/12 till 01/09/12 for 10days..went with my three children.. read bad & good reviews before we went there.We had a fantastic holiday!! wasn't pleased with our room,but the manager Mohammed had us changed to another room the next day.. which was bigger and better. Mohammed was extremely helpful , very polite & friendly to us. All the staff at the hotel were generally polite & friendly.The weather was great which helped :) We booked day trips as well as spent time at the beech & at the pools.great value for money only down point was the food which was bland for our tasting lol we do like our food with a kick to it lol... would love to go back to Tunisia Karawan beech hotel.. Came back with lots of good memories & a great Tan :)

Husband and I stayed here oct 2012 were not fussy people as long as its clean has edible food and has a basic standard THIS HOTEL HAS NONE STAY WELL CLEAR ! Filthy windows, food splattered walls, smoking chefs and bar staff its also located on a very busy road they didn't even have ice for the horrid drinks. This is by far the worst holiday we have ever experienced. We moved to the Royal Salam hotel after 2 days for fear of food poisioning costing a further £300 and the standard here was only slightly better.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS POST AND SAVE YOURSELVES A NIGHTMARE !

Room Tip: Stay well clear of this hotel and area

Stayed 2 weeks Oct 3rd-17th family of 9 3rd time in Tunisia. On arrival staff were friendly and very helpful had given us 4 rooms together as requested but were street view after saying we had booked pool view staff were quick to say they would see what they could do after a few mins Mohammad came and explained that he could give us pool view but rooms not together and gave us keys for all 8 rooms to go and view and let us choose thought this was very good of him .

Halek and Amdy the animation guys were brill and played with kids and sat and spoke to guests ok nightly entertainment was a bit hit and miss but if no guests arrive to watch what was the point of putting it on .

Found all staff friendly from reception ,bars, restaurant and domestic though some guests were very rude to them.

Pools and all public areas were spotless never saw a flooded toilet lol and pools were tested daily.

Paying bar was used by locals mostly men which is the Tunisian way and all were friendly .

Food could have been a little better but never went hungry always had 3 meals a day.
Drinks well yes they did the job lol vodka whiskey cocktails

Clean towels daily with clean bedding every other day.

Had a great holiday and would return to Karawan .

Would never go there again just come back after 10 days - one of the worst holiday I have been on, bad service bad food and hotel needs a good clean don't waste your money

Have a good look around before picking a hotel and go on trip advisor
