Farewell Enfidha

A travel blog entry by tonyhudson


Enfidha airport is gleaming in the hot sun when we arrive for our flight home. Check in effortless and security, despite the recent troubles, is light touch.

It's a modern day oasis, which is somewhat souless and seeming ...

Farewell dinner... good service and tips

A travel blog entry by tonyhudson


Last Supper
Tonight is our last dinner at the Marhaba Palace and so not unexpectedly we receive exceptional service this evening. It's a ritual - which sometimes descends to pantomine - we've seen acted out a few times now. Waiters rushing round guests at their last meal, presumably to ensure that they get a good tip.

So we play our part and let our waiter go through the ritual. ...

From modern port to Punic port

A travel blog entry by tonyhudson

After an early breakfast we leave one port, Port El Kantaoui, to head for another, the Punic port at Carthage, to explore the Punic-Roman monuments and artefacts, as well as visiting a chic bohemian village.

After our final pick-up in Port El Kantaoui we take the motorway towards Tunis. Some 90 minutes later we are on the outskirts of the capital, Tunis, passing La Goulette, and approaching our first stop of the day, the Punic ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Palm Marina Port El Kantaoui

    Can't recommend it


    We stayed in this hotel in the first week in April. just wanted a week of rest and relaxation in a quality hotel - hence the 4* was attractive.

    Be Careful! It's a trap!


    I'm Fiipe Caldas, customer of Palm Marina Hotel. I spent holidays last year on 09 September, and I bought trough a man who took me, my wife and some friends to a store (Fayçal SASSI - Club Bazar) to sell carpets from the hotel by a caravan.

    A disappointment...


    I took my boyf there for his birthday, from memory it was rated as 4-5*. Upon arrival it looked really nice, but as we had to walk outside across the pool to get to our room we noticed the hallways were dark, the lights did not work properly.

    Not five star sevice


    we stayed at this hotel sept 05 room was spacious and well laid out, hotel was very nice but service in restaurant was not five star, food was cold and not a big selection, very unorganised when it came too getting a table for dining, pool was very nice but most employs where annoyed if no tip giving, good taxi service into marina from hotel and about 3 dinars. overall holiday was good but not as expected.

    We had a greaty holiday


    we stayed in this hotel june 2005 and had a great time the rooms were good and had a great veiw of the sea we had ajoining doors as my daughter and grandaughter were next door this made the holiday it was like living in a large flat only one complaint we really could have done with more drawer space. the entertainment team make this holiday they do loads for the kids and adults always lots to do. darts keep fit water polo mini disco and kids club this was all very well run and seeko and the gang are great fun i will defenatlly go back to this hotel food was good and a nice variety lovelly clean pool and loads of space oround the pool with loads of sun beds and brollys even in the afternoon, not a lot of british but i did not mind that every one of the staff can not do enought for you, i have stayed in a few hotels in tunisis and would say this is one off the best all round and would really say give it a go you will not be dissapointed. you can hire safe deposit and it is free towel hire by the pool is a deposit and you can have a fresh beach towel every day deposit is returned when you are going home so this hotel has no added expence they have a show every night and it is put on by the entertainment team what a laught. they do quizes and bingo so something for every one they also have a night club for the people who want to be up untill 3 4 in the morning so happy holidays

    Fine for a cheap week away, don't expect 5* luxury though!


    Public areas, i.e. lobby and main restaurant are nicely maintained but unfortunately raise expectations. Our room was large, but not very well maintained. Definately not 5* standard. Lots of chipped furniture and floor tiles. The balcony was very very dangerous and I wouldn't ever allow a child out there unsupervised as the wooden bits were coming away from the wall.

    For a Chill-Out holiday - this is the place.


    We booked our holiday a week prior to departure as a Panorama Super-Saver allocated on arrival...we chose the guaranteed Melia 5* and at Arrivals in Monastir were told we were at the Palm Marina in Port El Kantaoui. When we arrived at 4am the hotel check-in was quick and we were impressed by the pretty grounds as we walked into the grand marble reception. Our room was VERY big and I have been in a suite that was similar in size to this room. The room had a foyer area with lots of fitted wardrobes with a separate room off for a toilet; a separate room off for a large bathroom and a separate room off for a large bedroom that has a sofa and chair included in the room as well as a make-up type table/chair/mirror...we were very impressed! The hotel is very clean, towels in room are changed daily and beds made-up every day. The activities are a good balance with Water Polo, Archery and Beach Volleyball being played every day. There are two pools connected via some watery steps and both are very nice. Loungers were plentiful and you could go down to the pool at ANY time of the day and there would be a lounger available. The hotel also kind of owns the patch of beach directly in front of the hotel so it has its own loungers you do not pay for, but if you want a nice cushioned mat you would just tip the chap who brings it to you. Food was just OK however I always managed to find something I liked - Breakfast had everything you could want including croissants, pain-au-chocolate thru to cereals thru to fresh omelettes. Evening Meal was varied but I thought it was catered more towards the Germans. Also if you want to do a Parasail or Waterski they are all very reasonably price - we did two separate Parasails and a Waterski for £20 after a bit of haggling

    Excellent !!!


    Superb hotel, great evening entertainment. Stayed in a spacious double balcony suite. Hotel staff very friendly, excellent private beach. Recommend this hotel to anyone. 5 out of 5!!

    Enjoyable holiday at a good hotel


    Stayed at this hotel 19th September 2004 for 1week had a most enjoyable holiday very friendly staff spotlessly clean and large rooms easily accessable to marina either by 20-30 minute walk along the lovely white sand beach which the hotel stands directly on, or by cheap taxi about £1.50 each way, or on the noddy train which stops at the hotel. Very quite around the hotel but adequate entertainment going on in the hotel with reasonably priced drinks. Food wise the breakfast was good with wide choice, dinner although fairly ordinary for a hotel classed as 5*, but you could nearly always find something acceptable. Only downside was that you had to be up by at least 8.30 to be able to get a sunbed, as towels had already been placed, even though there was a notice in your hotel room telling you that this was not supposed to be done and the pool attendants did nothing to discourage it.

    One way to lose weight!


    We spent a week's half board at the Palm Marina in September 2004. It is a large, fairly recently built hotel located out of the main resort of Port El Kantaoui. Taxis will take you to the resort for a few Dinars (around £2). Plus points were the location, immediately next to the lovely white sand beach, excellent large pool, efficient, friendly staff, and hotel prices for drinks being not too exorbitant. Drawbacks included poor food and poor entertainment. Evenings were a bit of a damp squib and you needed to go into town as a result. The marina in Port El Kantoui is worth a look but consists of restaurant after restaurant, as well as lots of expensive boats/yachts owned by rich visitors, and various small shops but little else. In the evening it was so busy with people just wandering around that you could hardly move!
