An average hotel, we only stayed here one night. Seems most of the organised tours use this for a night stopover so it can get busy as the hoards feed.
I was suprised with the quality of the evening buffet service.A good selection of food, well presented and tasty. Service was averag ethroughout the hotel.
We woke in the middle of the night because the A/C had been turned off and the room was stuffy. Opened the window and that move let the mossies in. The beds and bedding were OK but the A/C ( or lack of it) ruined the nights sleep.

Room Tip: Make sure the A/C is operating for the full night.

Struggle to find anything good to say about this hotel, guests seemed to be an inconvenience to the staff, - serious retraining and better management urgently needed. Rooms and public areas very tired and not very clean. Avoid if possible.

after traveling some 14 hours touring south tunisia on an organised trip,bus weary we entered the lobby of el mouradi douz, wow palacial yes but it ended right there.we were shown to our room tired and ready for a refreshing shower my partner looking forward to soaking in the bath.fat chance. there was no plug for the bath the shower head would not stay up on the rail,disappointed we asked for another room,a few moments later hotel staff showed us to another room i asked him to check the bath room you.ve guessed it.in fact this was worse no plug for the bath and the shower literally fell off the wall.pissed off by now i got onto the staff member who in turn got on to reception,in the meantime being a maintenance man i precede to have a go at fixing the shower which i did but the valve didnt work so only half the water came out of the shower head gone nine pm and having been travelling since 0500hrs i made do, i better not tell you what bev used for a plug. this hotel is used by company,s for its two day excursions and it seems that the comfort of its guests does not really matter as they are only stopping over one night.never again

Room Tip: take a multi tool with you and be prepared to do repairs

Douz is referred to as the "gateway to the Sahara". And the El Mouradi at Douz lies at the edge of town, an "oasis" literally facing the desert. The lobby is impressive, done in the Arabic style architecture. The pool is large, with a serious bar service, and as with all other Mouradi hotels, lies at the center of things. This particular hotel, like its counterpart in Tozeur caters to the safari crowd. These people come in and go out for just one night or at the most two and they leave very early in the morning. This probably explains why the rooms don't have a fridge. But it's "graying at the temples" a bit and the style of furniture, fabrics, color, etc. looks a bit dated. Room numbering seems problematic with the three Mouradis I've stayed in - in one hotel, 5XX is in the first floor, in another hotel, 2XX is in the first floor, and in another 3XX and 9XX are on the same floors. Quite confusing. If you get the junior suite, you get a large antechamber, plus a separate toilet room from the shower-wash basin-bidet room. The TV is old fashioned CRT - does anyone still carry those in their hotel chains? - and tough luck if you don't speak French - 80% of the channels are in French, plus a smattering of Spanish and German channels. You have to pay for wifi, at exorbitant rates. Does anyone else do this in Tunisia? The food buffet - they provide breakfast and dinner buffet - is acceptable. Nothing fancy, good variety, and you won't starve. The headwaiters though look like bouncers - not sure if it's a deliberate hotel policy. Service is uneven. It's probably rated correctly - 4th of 11.

I stayed one night at El Mouradi in Douz when taking a 2 days tour to Sahara from Sousse.
The lobby area is really nice. The room was big and comfortable and the bathroom with separate toilet had a good standard.

The pool was big and open 24 hours. A welcome relief after sitting in a bus since 07 in the morning.

Buffet dinner and breakfast was good and far better than the hotel I stayed at in Sousse.

If ever in this remote place again, I will gladly stay there again.
