... something in The English Patient but I don't care. To quote Elaine Benes - "Quit telling your stupid story about the stupid desert, and just die already! DIE!"
My mis-marked aparthotel turned out to be on the Marina, which was actually pretty cool for having completely screwed up. There were apartments and a hotel, about ten restaurants, and you could swim in the Mediterranean. The city itself, like Tunis, was a typical developing ...
... AD and rises from near the waterfront area so we were actually walking downhill as we set off. The alleys of the Medina were pretty narrow (as is typical of most
medinas) and contained the standard residential and commercial areas.)
This Medina was not that large, but the stalls were filled with a lot of friendly people waving and smiling as we walked by. I stopped at my favorite area, the spice market stalls and took in not only the aroma, but the opportunity to buy the ...
... welcoming vibe. The dude who served me lunch actually took the plate from under me as I was still eating. There were few smiles and I was left with the distinct impression that they wished I wasn't there. Oh sure they were polite enough. But it was a forced politeness. The vibe was very reminiscent of Isfahan in Iran. Everyone said Isfahan was gorgeous city and it would be my favorite city, and in fact it was quite pretty, but I could not get over the vibe and so I never found ...

The craftsmen & artists of the area were famous throughout the Roman Empire. Apparently only the Bardo museum in Tunis has as good works. Our guide then led us through the old quarter back to our hotel in Sousse. Still no sense re the AC so we slept with the balcony door open & were visited by the mosquitoes much to Dick's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Club Selima Port El Kantaoui
Loch in der Hölle
Eine totale Schande, dreckig und unter dem einfachsten Standard. Die Bäder müssten komplett gesprengt werden, da Dusche und Wanne total dreckig und schmierig waren und das Emaille bereits abblätterte. Das Essen war grauenvoll und es fühlt sich an, als sei man bei der Fütterung im Zoo gelandet. Die Kellner jagen nach Trinkgeldern und das Unterhaltungsprogramm war nur für alle unter 9 Jahren zugenießen. Sparen Sie sich Ihr Geld und glauben Sie den Bewertungen, da dieses Hotel nichts anderes als ein Dreckloch ist. Da ich schon einmal in Tunesien war und in Sousse gewohnt habe, weiß ich, dass es dort wirklich gute Hotels gibt und dieses nur ein schlechtes Beispiel ist. Das hätte mich abgeschreckt, wenn ich vorher nie in Tunesien gewesen wäre.
Waren für 2 Tage hier und sind dann in das Marhaba umgezogen, das im Vergleich einfach nur fantastisch war (natürlich war dies auch ein 5 und kein 3 Sterne Haus). Das Selima wird seinem Namen "Club Selima" sehr gerecht - es ist wie ein Campingplatz, keinerlei Ruhe und Erholung, Musik dröhnt von morgens bis abends und, es sei denn, man steht um 5 Uhr morgens auf, bekommt man auch keine Liege mehr. Es gibt auch nie genügend zu Essen für alle Gäste. Hier waren Scharen an Gästen. Wenn Sie meinen Rat möchten, bleiben Sie hier bloß nicht!!
This being our third time in Tunisia, first time to Port El Kantaoui. We absolutely loved this place, friendly caring staff throughout the whole hotel from maid to the kids animation team second to none! Clean rooms, the hotel and grounds are spotless. Food is very nice and a wide choice although yes admitidley a little repetative. Handy hint, if you tip the waiter in the downstairs al la carte restaurant (approx 2 dinars!!) he normally allows you to eat there most nights. After seeing previous review on this place before we went we were concerned that our children wouldn't enjoy the kids club - They absolutely loved it! Yes it isnt really that geared up for English kids but you are going to a country where English is the 3rd language they speak so we didnt expect the kind of stuff you get in butlins! Our kids are age 3 and 8 and they loved it here which meant for the first time we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. Our daughter celebrated her birthday here - unforunatley we forgot to pack her birthday card, we asked on reception the night before where we might buy one from the next morning we found a lovely musical card along with a boquet of flowers and a huge bowl of fruit in our room and a birthday cake with candles at our evening meal - no charge. A wonderful end to a great holiday. Also worth a mention - we lost our safety deposit key and had to pay 30dinar to replace it, key was later found by a worker on the beach we were refunded immerdiatley something I feel they didnt have to do considering we wouldnt have known if it was ever found.
first time with allocation on arrival not sure what to expect! classed as 3* and just getting ready for the beginning of their season. staff excellent and very friendly, place very clean along with the 2 pools. Rooms very basic though, twin rooms with 1 pillow, wardrobe and a telly but unfortunately not english, with a clean bathroom/shower and a balcony, but for a last minute deal and a very good price just how long do you spend in your rooms! but comfortable enough. Right on the beach and the gardens when in full bloom will be really pretty. staff expect to be tipped which seems to be the done thing and also advised by the rep, we tipped the waiter one of the bar staff and the maid at the end of the week, around 10 dinas each, roughly £4.00 each and they were extremely pleased, but then they do look after you. No extra cost for water each day and breakfast starts at 6.00. Food not very adventurous, similar each day but very geared up for the french, still can,t complain loads of it and hot. no problems at all and would definately go back. one word of warning though because there are no lifts wheelchair bound people although looked after very well had to be wheeled round the whole of the building to get access to downstairs but didnt seem to effect the few that were there though. beach and pool in the week that we were there also had their own lifeguard.
We booked this hotel as a last minute holiday in April 06 purely to get away from the terrible weather in the UK. Had a lovely holiday, very relaxing which is what we wanted.
When we booked I thought to myself "don't expect a lot as it's only 3*", especially as the previous year we stayed in a very luxurious 5* hotel about 20 miles away. Well, when we arrived we was very pleasantly suprised with the friendliness of the staff and the general outloook of the complex. The rooms were basic, tired looking, but nice and clean.
A complete disgrace, dirty less than basic, bathrooms want blowing up bath and shower full of dirt and greese enamel comming of the bottom of the bath, food awfull meal times is like feed time at the zoo no one que"s just push past you staff hound you for tips entertaitment great for under 9"s as for adults it is zero, save youre money read these reveiws and belive them the hotel is nothing but a dirty hole and would not recomend it to anyone, been to tunisia before and stayed in souse had some realy good holidays good food excellent hotels and entertaitment first class this hotel is a bad example to tunisia it would put me of going to tunisia if i had never been before.
We are a family of 4. The kids are now 9 and 6 years of age. We have been to this hotel for the past 2 years and are in the process of booking it again for 2006. The rooms are very basic and old but all have been in good working order and very clean. The all inclusive food is excellent. Three times a day there is a spread of food for every persons needs. If this food isn't to your liking, there is also an all day pizza 'hut' open until 11pm, plus tea and cakes in the afternoon. The swimming pools are clean with life guards. The animation team do alot of activities in one of the pools. In the mornings they do water arobics and some afternoons games (water polo etc). Sunbeds are readily available, but a couple of dinars to the life guard and your bed will be reserved for you. The beach is on the hotel complex, litually, that also has a life guard and is clean with sunbeds and umbrellas. It also has a beach bar. The staff are really friendly, and the shows - well - they are pure entertainment. Every night there is a mini disco followed by a different show. The animation team work very hard. They start at 10am and finish well into the eary hours. There is a disco in the hotel which finishes at 2am. All in all this hotel meets our every need. Swimming all day with drinks and food to hand and then super entertainment all evening long. Well done the Sol Club Selima!!
Never again !!
Stayed for two days then moved to the imperial marhaba which was fantastic in comparison (ok i appreciate this one is 5 star and not 3). The Selima is aptly named "club selima" - it is like a holiday camp, no peace and relaxation here im afraid, music blasting from morning till night, no chance of a sunbed around the pool unless youre up at 5am and a fight to get some basic food rations!! There appeared to be thousands of folks staying here.
Word of advice - dont bother!!
We went to this hotel ( I use the term loosley) JUNE 2002 , When we went to our room I tripped on a 3inch nail which was a door stop in our room !!! the bathroom plumbing was held together with 2 old socks ,that could not stop the bathroom flooding it was a nightmare , dinner was a yoghurt could I could not cope with the piles of chips eggs pasta. every time our door was closed the balcony door flung open as no lock on it the list is endless
The finalle to our 2 day stay was the sewage getting into the air con LOVELY!!! We then demanding to be upgraded to the 5*mourardi palace which was fantastic we have been back again to this hotel .
