After our first trip to the Kanta Resort in May 2012 we didnt hesitate to return for a last minute holiday.
sadly I have to say nothing like our first...
Hotel staff are lovely kind helpful people make you very welcome and the house keeping & bar staff are excellent, the hotel a little dated but clean and comfortable. The grounds are well kept, and pools spotless! A great location close to the Marina lovely for a nice walk, shop owners do try and badger you to buy but a firm no sends them away.
A wonderful place to relax either by pool or private beach but this is not a holiday for nightlife etc.
My dislikes this visit are as follows...
Restaurant was so very dis organised and food standards slipped quite considerably, staff seemed lost of how to get it under control. Entertainment was dire!
Locals or as i was told Libyans were a big problem, they ignored staff and basically did what the hell they liked and didnt take any notice to the hotel rules and regulations, wasted food filling plates and plates of food and deserts and just left it. Swimming pool regulations were ignored that wearing swimming burka's were not allowed, they just laughed and ignored the life guards who asked them to leave the pools. They basically ran riot around the hotel and the hotel staff did nothing about them.
This has seriously changed my mind about a future visit to Kanta which is a shame as ive recommended to friends & family to this hotel after my first visit.
Avoid last week of August in Tunisia as its main holiday season and it ciaos.
I shall miss Ahmed & piano bar staff as they are wonderful people and a great asset to the hotel. Met some great people this year, keep in touch if you read this, im the heavily tattooed lady lol.
