... However, all of the action appeared to be taking place in the town square where a massive, and I mean massive, sheep sale was taking place. The townfolk appeared to be in high gear for Eid as everyone appeared to be sheep shopping (say that three times...).
We drove through the busy streets to the other side of town where we pulled over so that I could visit another ksar. This ksar, however, had been overtaken by local merchants who had set up shop in the ghorfas to ...

... Corrie has been running a little hot in the North African heat. This has caused much stress at home, and we are currently trying to send a new fan to Egypt. The situation has caused less stress in the car, as we feel the same heat Corrie does, and feel its pain. The crew has been keeping an eye on it, and all photos taken with the bonnet open are only precautionary stops, and not forced stops to let Corrie ...
... a camel or horse. By the conclusion of the tour, I (and everyone else) was coated with a thin venire of sand, my hair was matted from dirt as if I had plastered it with hairspray, and I could feel the grittiness of sand in my mouth.
Jerba was a nice place for us to relax for a few days and do a whole lot of nothing, but I would not make it a future vacation destination.

Historical Traveler Reviews SENTIDO Djerba Beach
Ho prenotato l'hotel circa 3 settimane prima della partenza e ho usato questo sito come guida per decidere quale hotel prenotare. L'hotel era molto pulito e c'erano molte nuove attrezzature. Quando abbiamo prenotato abbiamo scelto la formula di mezza pensione (se decidete di andare in questo hotel vi consiglio di passare alla formula 'tutto compreso' perché ha praticamente lo stesso prezzo del pranzo e le bevande sono tutte incluse, anche l'acqua). Sull'isola non c'è molto da vedere e se fate un'escursione preparatevi a una dimostrazione di vasellame e tappeti. Lontano dalle zone degli hotel, l'isola è piuttosto tranquilla e gli abitanti non sono certo ricchi. Durante la nostra settimana di soggiorno (fine febbraio, inizio marzo), la temperatura era di circa 20-23°C e l'hotel era pieno per metà, quindi non c'era da scapicollarsi per aggiudicarsi un lettino. Se preferite la spiaggia, questa è letteralmente a un tiro di schioppo. Immagino che durante l'estate sia veramente difficile trovare un lettino libero perché circa il 90 % dei turisti sono tedeschi. Nel complesso è stata una vacanza fuori dai soliti canoni e ci ritornerei senza dubbio nei mesi invernali.
Pas de critiques à faire sur ce séjour d'une semaine au Djerba Beach Hôtel, tout était parfait : chambre, nourriture, activités, personnel etc....
Un point très positif, la piscine : elle est immense, très belle, et on a pas du tout l'impression d'être les uns sur les autres.
Le seul point négatif : la ballade en calèche à Midoun proposée par l'hôtel, à éviter (visite de l'arrière pays....très sale. Visite d'une fabrique de tapis...en fait aucune explication et tentative de vente forcée...bref je vous déconseille fortement cette sortie proposée au sein de l'hôtel)
Je vous conseille également les soins (gommage, hammam, massage) proposés par l'hôtel : très abordables et de qualité.
Great choice for lazy travelers
- great for eldery travelers and couples with small kids. Not recommended for people seeking much fun
- extremly helpfull staff. Fluent in German and French, communicative in English
- Tasty food in abundance, both European and Arabic. Drinks, bottled water - no limits.
- surroundings not interesting at all. Half-day shopping in the city seems to be the only reasonable option (take a taxi, 8 km, 2 euro).
- Out-of door swimming pool is fine (although cold water in beginning of May), the indoor one - warm but small.
We have just come back from a lovely week in the iberostar djerba beach hotel, the hotel is fantastic and the food was very good as well,my partner is a fussy eater and always found something to eat at every meal time. The week we were there it was the worst weather they had had since december which was sod's law but still we managed to have a good time. There is not a great deal to do outside the hotel, the island is really based around having good weather everything there is to do is based for the sun shining which restricted us a bit. There is a crocodile sanctuary on the north west of the island and we walked there from this hotel it took around 1hr 30mins and was a lovely walk along the beach.
Just returned from a lovely relaxing holiday at the Iberostar Djerba beach. Have been to a few all inclusive hotels and by far the best. Really friendly and attentive staff, great food (the home-made pizzas while you wait are fantastic) and really smart decor. I agree with a number of comments made previously - the hotel IS full of Germans (14 english people when we stayed!), there can be a chilly wind and we couldn't get a sunbed by the pool for the duration of our stay! However the beach is lovely and we were more than happy to sunbathe there, the pool was cold so no-one seemed to go in it anyway and we would rather relax in comfort than be jampacked in with loads of people! It was ideal for us as we're a couple that go on holiday to unwind in the sun, read lots of books and not really socialise with others. I wouldn't recommend this place if you are out for a lively holiday or if you have children... the entertainment team are really good but if there are no young english people for them to interact with. We met one 14 year old who was going up the wall with no-one to talk to!
Nous sommes partis en couple à l'hotel iberostar djerba beach en septembre 2006. C'était super que demander de plus, piscine extérieure à 28 degrés et la mer très propre et encore plus chaude. Il faisait tellement bon que malgrès la température élevait de 28 degrés de la piscine l'eau nous rafraichissait bien. Il ne faut pas oublier l'equipe d'animation qui ne manque pas d'energie, activités durant toute la journée, vous ne pourrez pas vous ennuyez!!! Et enfin le cadre paradisiaque, piscine à la forme originale avec palmier tout autour et bar au centre. Le choix de la nourriture était très vaste, il y en a pour tous les goûts!! Bref un hotel à ne pas manquer si vous passez des vacances à Djerba!!!!!
Really excellent hotel for a week's R&R. We went through Panorama and the rep was absolutely first class. Rooms are comfortable tho' we found the bed(s) too hard, and each has its own terrace. We had a ground floor room & were slightly concerned at leaving the door open at night (air con doesn't come on until May) but were assured that there was sufficient security to be safe and we had no problems. Room safe is well worth having. About £10 and all your valuables are secure and accessible when you want them. And if you go fully inclusive you won't need much. All your food, drinks, ice creams and even bottled water is included. You do have to wear a rather bright luminous wrist band tho' which identifies you (apparently) to touts if you go into town. Food is excellent, lots of choice and some local choices too. Not so good for vegetarians - but copeable. Service can be a bit erratic particularly when locals are staying. The Maitre d' gives them preferential treatment and you might find your waiter called away to care for them and rather ignoring you. Sun beds are a real problem. There is a no reserving rule but this is not enforced and we found every sunbed around the rather super pool was reserved by 7am!! Largely by our German friends who form the majority of the guests and the staff will speak to you in German. French is their second language and English is less spoken. Very good sports/entertainment team if you want that sort of thing and the childrens club (which we didn't use) appeared also to be very good. Not much to do otherwise other than sunbathe and read. Shopping was tiring because of the badgering of shopkeepers - do haggle and do be prepared to be fleeced to some extent. We used the hotel Hammam - which we really enjoyed. But even there, charming tho' they are, you need to stay on the ball moneywise or be prepared to pay over the odds. But that is just the culture and you need to accept that they are a poor country and that we have so much more money that they can't be blamed for trying to relieve us of some of it. Hotel will change money for you - we took sterling but Euros would have been okay too. Really recommend this hotel however and we have come home very rested. (Weather was brilliantly sunny - but there was a fairly strong and very cold wind much of the time).
Booked hols about 3 weeks prior to departure and used this site as a guide to which hotel to book.
nous sommes partis la semaine du carnaval, avec mon mari et nos deux enfants en bas âges. ce sont les plus belles vacances que nous avons passées, nous recommandons cet hotel à tout le monde, propreté extrême, charme de l'hotel, nourriture impeccable, les animateurs sont très sympas, et proches des touristes, leur humour est super amusant. N'oublions pas le mini club avec l'animatuer chouchou qui sait adapter et varier les activités. Le point positif est que le beach bar sépare la plage de la piscine et que par conséquent, tout est proche, les enfants peuvent donc diversifier les lieux sans s'en éloigner. La piscine intérieure super chauffée est un vrai atout pour se détendre. Bref une seule phrase, on y retournera d'ici peu de temps.
