What a fantastic holiday - The hotel was clean and exceptionally well presented with a fantastic choice of bars and restaurants to choose from. There was always a great choice of food and snacks available, you could never go hungry - the chocolate pancakes were a particular favourite. All the staff made our holiday from Jamie our cleaner, bar staff, waiters, reception and others - nothing was ever too much trouble. Particular praise has to go to the outstanding talented entertainment team, their enthusiasm and energy lasted all day every day right into the evening. There was always something happening to watch and keep you entertained and a programme of events to take part in if you chose to. A big thank you also to Robin on the archery who was such good fun we returned for another go! We paid an additional amount to go horse riding which was worth it. The stables are attached to the hotel and the team who work there are very patient and really look after you and the horses. The only tough decisions you'll have to make are what to eat and swimming pool or beach? Thank you all

Best holiday ever! I went to this hotel with my family and was enjoyed by everyone. The animation team were the best ever, Nino in particular made my holiday! All the staff were lovely and friendly, Sami was my favourite waiter and never failed to impress us! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. The food was different everyday, there was a wide range of meat with a vegetarian option, the chips were my favourite. I would defiantly go back!

Returning to the Phenicia in just over three weeks, (28th August) Decided to upgrade to a superior room as it is for my partners birthday and our anniversary. This is only as a gift to ourselves, if you are thinking of going to this hotel dont let the comments about rooms put you off, it is truley a remarkable hotel and the staff bend over backwards to accomadate your needs. If you have a problem it is dealt with right away (we only had a small niggle last time)

I will write a comprehensive review on my return, but if you are about to travel in the next few weeks you are in for a treat!

Just come home from a two week stay at hotel phenicia. The hotel was great! Very modern, clean and great location (we were first drop off from airport). The staff were brilliant, very friendly and of course the animation team were very entertaining! There is lots to do in the day time but if you do just want to relax there is a smaller pool area which is much quieter. The food is great, so much to choose from all day long! Would definitely reccomend the beach barbecue for lunch! The hotels private beach is great, it's very peaceful and quiet. We visited the Chinese restaurant which is in the hotel, it is 20 dinar per person which works out to be approximately £8 for a 4 course meal and it was lovely!! Overall I would definitely reccomend this hotel, I have no negative points at all and I would go back again.

Well what can I say!!! they are all fantastic, from the time they start until they finish they certainly keep you entertained. I do have a favourite, I know you shouldn't but Mario you were true entertainment. The evening entertainment was different every night.
We were at the Phenicia for 10 days and by the end of that we knew all the dance moves and still watch back video's I took and it makes me laugh every time. Thanks for a great holiday. We will be back.

Room Tip: Maybe a kettle in the room please.

We stayed at this hotel for a week In July and had a brilliant time, it was a lovely hotel and beautiful grounds with its own private beach. The food was nice and lots to choose from and yes the pancakes are lovely. All the reviews say how good the entertainment team are and this is true, they were so friendly and there was lots going on throughout the day. While we were there my daughter celebrated her birthday and she had such a fuss made of her all day, when we went down for dinner there were beautiful flower's on the table and a cake was arranged for her its those little things that make the difference. We had dinner in the traditional Berber tents which was an experience and would recommend it ,it is part of the all inclusive. While there we went to the Africa dream excursion this was good value for money and a very enjoyable day out you get to look around the zoo and then there is African dancing and traditional Tunisian food. One of the best nights there was the pool party it was crazy but such fun. To sum up listen to all the good reviews, if you go to this hotel you will love it I would definitely recommend this hotel to any one and would go back tomorrow if I could.

Well what can i say apart from this was the best holiday by far!! The animation team are the best in the world and are always there if you need help with anything! They put on a wide rang of activities during the day such as aqua gym, zumba, water polo and loads more! They even put on an evening show every night! I honestly don't know where they find the energy! Just want to say a massive thank you to Bibo, Nemo, Nino, Shaggy, Mira, TiTi, Mike and all the other animation for making this holiday the best one I have ever been on!!
