This morning we visited Monastir, which is just south of Sousse. The town has a fine ribat (fort) built by the Muslims to defend against the potential Christian invaders in the 10th century. It has been extensively restored & was used in "The Life of Brian" as a set. The major attraction apart from beaches is the Bourguiba mausoleum that he had built for himself during his long presidency. It houses the tombs of his family also & is ...
... All in all found it quite impressive and in great contrast to the sleepy town at its feet; however have to admit the one in Rome is still my number one even though it's been more than 15 years since my last visit in The Eternal City.
On our way back asked the driver to drop us off in Sousse to check out another Unesco World Heritage site - the Medina, which is the old, historic part of the city. Made a bit of research on it before visiting and decided not ...
... meters down a road parallel to the one we just came up. ½ mile later, we arrive at the Louage terminal which, coincidently was only about 200 meters away from the spot where we asked directions 45 minutes ago from the original guys.
Speedy ride down major divided highways with few head-on collision concerns, the louage driver drops us at the magnificent third largest Roman coliseum on earth. Hungry, we grab a ...
... away and then he lowered his price to $35, $30, $20, $17, $14, $10, $8, $7, $6, $5. We still walked away and he yelled at us as we were leaving "Don't come back to here or this country. I don't like people like you." We didn't want to come back anyway. These people are so pushy. We had a buffet dinner at our hotel that was actually decent. It had a lot of food. It wasn't super high quality, but it definitely did the job and filled our stomachs. ...
El Jem is a very little village, near of no one interesting place with the exception of Kairouan. Instead, we had to organize a special tour for visiting its interesting amphitheatre becasue our taxi driver, from Kairouan, he wasn't disposed to go there due to the bad condition of the road, as he said us.
However, from Mahdia, the road is good and the travel can be easily ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Mahdia
We arrived at the hotel somewhere around three in the morning, we were tired and thus wanted to get to our room asap. After receiving our key, we were shown the way through the gigantic hotel by an extremely friendly bellboy. The room appeared to be horrible. As soon as we entered it we could smell that it was humid. There was a huge stain in the middle of the floor (we could only guess what the origin of that was), the closet smelled like urine, we wanted to get out of there immediately. After complaining at the desk, we were assigned another room which was much better but still not what you would expect from a '5star hotel'.
the staff are rude to all english, and there was only 2 of us in a 600 room hotel, we were treated bad, the scenary is like a third world country, the food was good, but often the drink was terrible, we spent 7 nights here but we spent 2 of them in a three star while ona trip and that was a lot better, all together a terrible holiday
The Melia El Mouradi walks a fine line between being a family-centred, beachside hotel and something altogether more grand. It carries this off successfully because, amidst the palatial decor, the staff are so friendly and easy going.
We have just had the misfortune to spend 7 nights in this Hotel.
Various items such as dirty towels, dirty bathrooms, poor selection and quality of food and empty mini bars (for which they attempted to charge us for - the mini bar was empty because we had supposedly drank the contents!) left me wondering how this hotel could be classed as 5-star. I quickly realised however that almost all of the hotels in Mahdia were 5-star - draw your own conclusions. I have stayed in better 3-star hotels in europe.
My advice - if you really must go to Tunisia, pick somewhere other than the Melia El Mouradi Mahdia - if I were able to rate the hotel at less than one out of five, I would do.
We stayed for one week and were delighted with our large seaview rooms. The standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel was excellent.
We have just had the misfortune to spend 7 nights in what is without doubt the most appalling hotel I have ever stayed in.
Beautiful hotel, very spacious everywhere and constantly being cleaned although some areas are now showing their age. Swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) are very well looked after and there was plenty of poolside sun beds. The hotel also has an excellent turkish bath where you can get a full scrub and massage for a very reasonable £12. Other facilties include a well equipped Gym, Sauna, Jacuzzi, Tennis courts (3) and Table tennis. The hotel has it's own wonderful beach, but as there are lots of Germans in the hotel the best sunbeds are gone at the crack of dawn. The food was Buffet style and was Ok'ish, but the Restaurant was very disorganised and to me was like a 'Hi Di Hi' Holiday camp Restaurant. Entertainment was in the very lavish 'Nightclub' but as the nights were nice and warm people liked to sit outside, so consequently not a lot of people supported whoever was performing. Madhia was a short taxi ride and was found to be untouched by tourism, have a look in the indoor market, the smell was absolutely gut wrenching!! If you go to any of the more commercial towns, be prepared to be hassled big time.
We stayed at the hotel for a week and found it to be gorgeous. The pool area was lovely. Very big and was set within beautiful surroundings. The hotel is set right on the beach which was clean with lovely golden sand. Rooms were very spacious and were always cleaned very well, try and make sure you get a pool view balcony as you can also see the sea, the higher you go the better the view.
We have just returned from our trip 18thSeptember - 2nd October 2004. This was the best holiday we have ever had. The staff were so very nice and made you feel like you were the most important person there, and it was so genuine, not just for tips. We had our table strewn with flower petals on our last night there and were made to feel so special.
If you want to see the real unspoilt Tunisia, then visit Mahdia in the winter months. No tourists, no pressure, no pubs no night clubs, just peace and quiet amidst warm and friendly people. The Mouradi hotel is situated in the middle of what must be the most beautiful unspoilt beach in the world - 40 minutes gentle walk takes you to the centre of the old town. Bliss!
The Mouradi hotel is a warm friendly 5 star palace - staff are excellent and nothing is too much trouble for them. Try it.
