Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Club Kantaoui Port El Kantaoui
We stayed here on an allocate on arrival deal. Lovely complex everything there fab hotel room, lovely view from balcony. Maids wonderful it felt like we were on honeymoon spotless and every day the maid would arrange towels on the bed, very impressed. fab pool lots of activities. mini disco and entertainment were ok hotel staff worked hard to make it a good night. beach ok not as clean as i thought it would be but we spent most of time arround pool. lots of watersports do do.food ok but i suffered with upset tummy for a fortnight. only bad comment. souse was very dirty but need to go to medina. port el kantoui lovely especially at night with the fountains.best part of holiday was price booked two rooms cause didnt have enough room for 4 in one room, when we arrived we were in 1 room so they refunded our money for the other room half the cost of our holiday. do you think this was why we had such a good time..........el jem a must
Before visiting this hotel I had read some unfavourable reviews and was therefore a little sceptical about the hotel. When I actually arrived there I could not believe that these people had written their reviews about the same hotel that I stayed in. The level of service was far better than any hotel in which I have stayed in the UK, never mind abroad. The staff go just a little bit further for you and that is what makes the difference. The level of cleanliness was excellent, the staff were friendly, even the cleaners were polite. The decor of the rooms was a little tired, but so are all hotels; although the exterior was freshly whitewashed, and the atrium of the hotel was quite impressive. The rooms (in the bungalows) were spacious and comfortable, and the beach was wonderfully close to the hotel. The food was excellent; it was fresh and hot with a good variety. The facilities at the hotel are good and the staff accomodate a wide range of ages with the activities they offer. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would recommend anybody going to this hotel to stay in one of the bungalows as close to the beach as possible.
Great Family Holiday
I had a great holiday at this hotel. Our room (bungalow) was a great size and very clean. The reception lounge was beautiful and the staff were also very nice. The choice of pools was amazing and our 14 month old son had a great time in the baby pool. You do need to get up quite early to reserve a sunbed but this is the same anywhere. The food was fine and queues for the buffet were not bad either. The taxi's to places of interest were very cheap. The marina was a nice stroll away or 5 mins in a taxi. If you think it is nice during the day - you must go in the evening. The atmosphere is great and it's good sitting outside a cafe watching the world go by. Would recommend this resort/hotel to anyone.
I enjoy this holiday because the stuff was very okay with us. Well done for the food and for the entertainment of waterpolo and many other things. the most thing that I do not like are there was a group of children and they tease us everywhere in the pool,restaurant and they were very rude but I enjoy Sol Club.

Good value for the money...
We stayed at the Sol Club Kantaoui from April 14th to April 24th. Although we've stayed in much better hotels, I think for the money it was good value. We actually stayed in two different rooms at the hotel (we went on a 3 day/2 night Safari and checked out of the hotel for 2 nights). The first room (628) was not in good shape...the carpets stained, bed lumpy..it looked liked it had seen better days. The only good thing was that we had a view of the ocean. However, the second room (554) was much, much nicer!! It looked like it was newer...more spacious, cleaner, the carpets were in much better shape, the walls painted recently...we even received more television stations on the TV!! The only downfall was that we only had a pool view, but we didn't mind! I must say the housekeeping staff were really great in both rooms! Always friendly and the room was always cleaned really well. Both rooms were also really quiet. We never heard any noices from the disco or Karaoke. The food was okay....there was always something different to us to eat every night. What they lacked in quality certainly made for it in quantity. I have to say though that I loved their deep fried turkety and fish kabobs!! The theme nights were good...but some were better than others. The waiters were really nice and always very helpful! The reception staff were nice and the cashier was especially helpful. The hotel also had entertainment every night, which was good. They also have a business centre, with internet access, which was very reasonable to use.
The facilities at the hotel were good. It was a bit too chilly to use the outdoor pools, so we made regular use of the indoor pool. The pool was nice and warm and had 2 jacuzzi's also. They also have a fitness centre and an outdoor cafe for lunch.
Overall, we enjoyed our time at Sol Club Kantoui. The location was good (there is a small shopping centre about 100 feet down from the hotel), and the marina was only about a 40 minute walk. I'm not sure we would stay there again, but that's only because there are so many hotels in the area and we would really like to try a different hotel next time!
Was there with my husband to celebrate my birthday. This hotel had been recommended by our local travel agent and we paid that extra more to be somewhere good. But were we disappointed! I don't have one good thing to say!!! Given a dirty shoddy room down by the beach after lugging our 2 suitcases for about a 20 minute walk (within the hotel!!!) We asked for a double bed and got THREE single beds squeezed into a tiny room where walking became difficult. Then, surprise Surprise, No towels, no soap, no toilet paper etc....Poor husband had to walk back again to the reception cause they did not answer the phone. This all at 9:00pm and dead tired!He came back empty handed, so we used our own beach towels and kleenex! The next day, up to 4pm no one had cleaned our room and still no towels etc etc. Receptionist said they are coming soon.We waited a long time(very uncomfortable after swimming in the salty sea) but no one showed up. My poor husband went once again to the receptionist's desk and when he quietly asked if someone was ever going to clean and stock our room, the manager started to scream and call him a liar!! My husband then calmly asked him to come and see for himself. He finally phoned the housekeeper who came before dinner and half-heartedly wiped the room and handed us two towels!This went on for the whole week...I ended up doing the bed, cleaning the toilet etc. etc. The young Russian couple next door were treated the same, but could not speak English, so they could not compain!!
To top it all, the shoddy restaurant served barely edible food and was the ugliest of places. Screaming Kareoke all the 7 nights we were there(they call it Entertainment!!) The paths we walked to the main building always stank of drainage... in fact the smell pervaded the whole hotel. Hotel boasts of a private beach, but you have to pay for a broken deck bed!!And provide your own towels!
The list is endlesss!!
PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE LOVELY PICTURES ON THEIR BROCHURE/WEBSITE.
This place is nothing more than a ONE STAR HOTEL with the rudest staff ever!!! My husband hardly had the guts to whisper HAPPY BIRTHDAY when the day came!!!!
Good time had by all
I have just returned from a week at the Sol Club. Had a fantastic time. Rooms clean and spacious, hotel facilities top notch. Weather not all that great so took opportunity to sample spa facilities.Great value for money (turkish bath and full body massage approx £20). Can see that the dining facilities would be a nightmare in peak season as we had a preview of the hotel being busy over the weekend, but was just right off peak. Had reserved table for whole week and waiters made special effort to decorate the 'regulars' table, especially on our last night. Overall, a lovely hotel with lovely staff!
My husband and I were in Sol Club for a week last February. We found the rooms to be very clean and tidy. The food was good and abundant. The hotel staff and the waiters were very polite and friendly. I'd like to suggest a change in the corridor carpets as they give a bad impression of the place. Apart all, everything was fine and we hope to visit Tunisia soon and stay at Sol Club once more.
I would definately recommend this hotel!!!!!!! I just came back from a week's holiday, and am planning to go again and again. IT was FANTASTIC. The rooms are spacious, cleaned every day with fresh linen and towels. The food was wonderful with loads of choice to one's liking......everything you can imagine for breakfast and dinner. The waiters were ALL polite, share a joke, and VERY friendly. The last day, all of our tour and the waiters had tears in their eyes......but we'll definately visit you AGAIN. THANK you SOL CLUB EL KENTAOUI.
Don't make our mistake
Hotel is OK, rooms are spacious and clean. These are the good sides of going to Sol Club El Kantaoui. Everything else was bad. Hotel staff is impolite and somitimes even rude (we were literally forced out of the room on the day of departure, even though it was well before 12 am). Waiters are bad-mannered. In the dining room, there are no reserved tables, so you'll probable have to to find a free one for each meal, and often you'll be asked by a waiter to go to another one, beacuse: "This one is for four, not three persons, MY FRIEND". Food is very monotonous, and the choice is narow (and untasty). This especially goes for lunch. One must pay to use sunbeds, although you are practically confined to the hotel beach only.
For the virtualy same price, you can go to better hotels in the same area, like Marhaba or Hannibal.

Finally the time comes, our meal is over and it's time for the tip. We give some notes to Gracie to give to the waiter. He seems to appreciate the gesture. Slipping the notes into his pocket he disappears into the kitchen and presumably home for the evening.
