Travel Blogs from Port El Kantaoui
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 ...

The next day we went on a caravan trip on dromedaries, because there are no camels in nothern afrika. Camels only live in Asia. we learned something new as well. :-)
The week went by way too fast, but it was really nice and I learned my first word in arabic:
"shokran" which means thank you.
... 160; "When will I see you again?" they asked as we walked, "When you're in heaven!" was my laughing retort. "Give her a snog," Jody told one such man, He said, "I'll give her whatever I can," But we soon discovered that while the men were fit, They could be quite grumpy so we ran away quick. So, a fabulous holiday, an awesome time, And with three hours sleep, I'm amazed I can ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Palace Port El Kantaoui
My friend and I (both female late 20s) have just returned from a week at the Melia. Our travel agency had booked us for a 4-star in Pek, but after reading the reviews on Melia El Mouradi we quickly upgraded our accommodation before leaving. This turned out to be the best decision ever!!
We are a Mid 50's couple from England who was looking to go to Tunisia for the first time. Friends told us that Port EL Kantaoui was best, and May the best time of year. We were going to the Maharba Palace, but this site raved on about the 5 star Melia El Mouradi Palace (MEMP), so we booked this with Airtours for £838 for 14 nights (brochure £1440). First let me say that you do need to complete a tourist Visa (Free) which was given to most of us at check-in. At Monastir, the customs stamp your card and return a part, which you use as a visa. KEEP this as you will need it to return home. As some didn't receive one, they had to fill it out at customs and the coach waited an hour for them! Our Sunday arrival meant that No money exchanges were open at baggage reclaim: no worries the Hotel reception was open and an ATM machine was opposite reception desk!. Again we were asked to fill in another form and given a non alcoholic welcome drink. The place looked great, Large reception and carpeted hallway, marble stairs etc.. Our room was large, with A/C, separate toilet and Bathroom, twin beds and a Balcony with a view over the drive in entrance(this seemed quite good to see all coming and going-but also heard the coaches picking and dropping people off at all times of the night. We were promised a Hardryer in the room-the unit was there but no hose, the bathplug hole (waste) was loose and we would have flooded the floor if used; also the patio doors would not lock. We left a maintenance form outside-it was taken away but nothing happened for 3 days, so reported it to Michael the rep.; who went to reception, then said, maintenance are on their way (6pm) At 11pm they actually came with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. In 10 minutes he replaced the hose, hit the waste plug with a screwdriver and squeezed the patio lock-them held his hand out for a tip! Now the bath only half leaks, and door closed for 2 days-but stopped the A/C from working. SORRY only 2 stars for maintenance.
we were in the hotel for two weeks - last week of may and first week of june and it was excellent! we were with the small baby and everything was just perfict! even during three cloudy and rainy days, hotel has a lot of things to offer. The beach is very nice, with lot of sunumbrellas and sunbeds, and the personel is very very good. There is some kind of entertainment constantly and food is more then excellent! Don,t hesitete and if you want to stay in port el kantaoui stai in Melia Palace!
This great hotel is given a 4 star rating altho its not a uk 4-star standard. having said that. its one of the better hotels ive stayed in in europe on a package deal. we booked 3 weeks before we traveled, we were there from 19th march 05 for a week & it was just right. the weather was in the mid to high 70s & there was a nice breeze.
My girlfriend and I have just come back from a week at the El Mouradi Palace, but we both wish we could have just forgotten about home and stayed there.
I stayed in the Melia El Mouradi Palace with my wife and teenage son, for two weeks last summer. The room was spacious and well equipped with minibar, sat TV, etc. The rooms have a private balcony and good ensuite facilities. It is billed as a 5* hotel but I would grade it more as a 4* in European standards. That said, the buffet meals are varied and of generally high quality. Breakfast is a bit repetative and as the hotel caters for a wide variety of nationalities, there are some pretty strange and unfamiliar foods served for breakfast e.g. carrots and peas!! This is a popular hotel with Russian travellers, only about 10% of the guests are British - but that's no bad thing when you are on holiday. Good facilities and entertainment for younger families. The hotel is located on the Northern end of Port El Kantoui, a good 20 minute walk from the centre but a very cheap taxi ride. Loads of taxis always waiting outside the hotel.
We have just returned from a one week stay in the el mouradi palace.
My boyfriend and I have just come back from a 7 day trip to Tunisia. I must say that the best thing we had was the hotel. We stayed at the Melai El Mouradi Palace. It is a 5***** hotel and is situated near the famous Sol El Kantaoui. The staff, the room, the food, the service - everything was excellent. Very polite, all of them from the GM to the chambermaids. Our room was cleaned everyday, clean towels everytime they needed changing. The variety of food was unbelievable. They also have good entertaining sports for those who might get bored in the winter months. Tennis courts, shooting, archery, bowling, mini golf...... etc
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to go there. It is tops !!
I have been to this hotel 12 times and im only 19. The food is great , the pool is huge and the hotel itself is like a palace. But i found one huge problem was with me having blonde hair and blue eyes that i counldnt go for dinner or for a swim without being asked out by a waiter i found being looked at all the time very annoying. Sometimes girls think that this is nice but beware as i was attacked by a member of the entertainment team on my last trip there. Saying no doesnt seem to get through to some men. Not that all tunisian men are like this just watch out and please dont fall for their lines which i have seen many girls my age and older doing
I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last couple of years.The Pool is very big and well looked after,Ahmed the lifeguard is brilliant at getting you a sunbed.The food is very good and well cooked,the rooms were kept spotless all the time.
The waiters and all the staff were brilliant especially with the children.I went this year when the football was on and they had laid on a big screen in the main bar.
All in all this is one of the better hotels in the PEK area.
