I feel the need to comment after reading all the terrible ones on here. A holiday is what you make it and you definitely get what you pay for. Yes the hotel is slightly dated and basic but its 3*! If you expect the ritz this isn't the hotel for you!
Straight from arrival I found the staff so helpful and attentive and we're fantastic with my 2 year old daughter. On our last night a few waiters had decorated our table with petals and candles. The food is ok and not inedible. Even though we were all inclusive we still ate out a few nights. I would definitely recommend the saloon a steak house about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The food is incredible!
The resort itself I found quite dirty and felt very uneasy walking to and from the medina and I would never have walked outside at night alone. Also beware of locals stopping you in the street and saying they work at your hotel (they can see it on your wristband) or drove your bus transfer/taxi. Its a con to get you to go into their shops! We fell for it the first day and ended up being surrounded by pushy tunisians asking for money. When I said I had none one man insisted I got in the car with him, left my daughter and partner there and went to get my credit card from the hotel.
We decided to have the camel trip offered by the hotel and I would strongly recommend it! Well worth the money and you're back at the hotel for 12pm!
Id definitely go back to tunisia but probably not sousse. Even though the hotel was great, i like a holiday where I can go off and explore but I genuinely didn't feel safe to do so (And ive been to turkey alone a few times)
Id definitely say take all the bad reviews about this hotel with a pinch of salt! After staying in the hotel myself I think the reviews say a lot about the people who wrote them. If you want a cheap and cheerful holiday with some (almost) guaranteed sun then the Karawan is the place to go!
Thanks for a great holiday guys
