“Soviva resort ,El Kantaoui, Tunisia May 2014”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

My partner and myself booked a cheap 1 week all inclusive and found the hotel to be far better than expected, with the rooms larger and more modern and overlooking the pool and outdoor restaurant (even number room req'd). The restaurant was open most of the day with an excellent variety of cooked and salad foods plus a gargantuan choice of cakes and sweets.( no pork products tho' as its a Muslim country). The local drinks were OK if nothing special but you can drink from 10am to midnight..The staff are excellent and whip away your empty glass as soon as its emptied. The entertainment staff are young and enthusiastic if not to our taste...the only downside is the loud booming dance music blaring away whilst you are trying to relax by the pool. There is an indoor pool,spa and gym with shops .We both really liked the hotel even though the nights were quiet.As for Tunisia ,see my other review !

I cannot fault the hotel staff at all. The service you get from the staff is A1, they cannot do enough for you. Plenty of food and a great variety. Animation not as good this year maybe as it's early in the season or maybe it's because the Thomas Cook entertainers are no longer here. Only down side is that they have banned smoking in the bar,but lifted it for a Tunisian party. Why not compromise and have a non smoking section then all will be satisfied. Once again we have had a great time here, and look forward to returning.

plenty of food choice and everything you need, staff very friendly and work very hard.
lovely rooms cleaned everyday and plenty of sunbeds available around the pool.
weather was great all week, sunny skies everyday. perfect!
animation team are all great and make sure you have an enjoyable stay at the hotel, they all work very hard and are very friendly, also like to have a laugh with you. They make the holiday extra special.
we would definitely return to soviva, we had a great time!

Arrived back sun 4th may 2014 after spending a week here. Generally happy with hotel. Friendly staff, good food, clean rooms, lovely pool area. The disappointment was with the entertainment. During day, the pool side is not so relaxing with head banging music blurting out so loud. Type of music seems only for very young, no variation at all. Evening entertainment includes kids disco for half he, one game bingo and then the head banging racket begins. There was never any alternative eg shows, light dancing etc except for sitting quietly in reception bar. Very dissatisfied with lack of any reasonable entertainment and put this down to hefty cutbacks at Thomas cook.

Room Tip: We had room on 1st floor and could get no sleep on the weds night due to the extremely loud vibratin...

As a couple, in need of sun and a good relax this is the spot.
Very friendly staff, excellent food and the pools great. The beer is good the spirits are ok too.
The sun is very hot and sky is blue.
Still here for a few more days. So will add to this.
Wifi in reception only. Very quite here so a good time to come.

Just came back from here on the 5th may 2014. Arrived 8.30 at night told to leave luggage and go get a meal and drink while they allocated our room luggage was taken to room for us, staff really friendly and extremely helpful, room was very clean and newly refurbished to a good standard if your expecting 5* this is not for you but in my opinion a good 3*+, we were in the main building top floor this is one of the better block this and the Golden block are the nicest we had seen even though all the rest look nice, all had a balcony or terrace, very little noise but this is a quiet time might be a bit noisier at peak season not much of a night life but there again quiet time of the season. Pool's cleaned on a daily basis all area's of the hotel are clean and free from any problem's as we have seen. The animation team are brilliant keeping the atmosphere alive for all ages even though it was quiet. Nice massive pool and slide's even a kids pool and kid's club. Meals are ok but a bit reparative even though I am a picky eater i still found something to eat without much trouble. If your expecting to get drunk you can but it's a hit and miss affair with the quality of the alcohol they introduced a 2 drink per person limit at anyone time thanks’ to some rowdy people towards the end of our stay but did not affect our stay at all. The waiter's are very helpful and are friendly nothing is to much trouble (please tip at the end of your stay for your allocated waiter if you think he's done a brilliant job looking after you), there are supposed to be several restaurants but were not open due to the time of season. you can hire towels from the hotel to take to pool side for 10 Denar's deposit which is refundable at the end of your stay and can be changed daily for clean one's. You can also claim a free bottle of water a day. Security is great but will all place’s thing’s do go missing we lost some loose change but I was told that this is considered a tip if left in the same place for to long other that it was ok. Not to many problems with this resort well worth the money and a visit.
we had a fab time and are going back in october!

Just arrived back home yesterday from a weeks holiday in tunisia the hotel soviva had the best time ever my self and my partner I cannot fault one area of this hotel from the minute you step into hotel from reception staff down to bar staff restaurant staff and maids to little lady in pool toilet cannot fault the friendliness and service, We went all inclusive, they try very hard to please all palette s from pizzas to fish veal chicken dishes plenty salads fresh fruit cakes etc ladies beware for those who love cakes, will have to take a few pair of loose clothing for your return home lol.x yes as some areas of hotel need a bit of updating ie indoor pool needs a link of paint but for price and quality of service and experience who wants to put bad reports about that the entertainment team work their socks off to please all ages down to babies kids and adults and us older generation lol all in all had the best holiday ever and so wish I had of booked 10 days or more and cannot wait to return asap.
