Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Kenz Hotel Port El Kantaoui
We stayed at the hotel Kenz in Dec 04,an excellent Hotel, good food good service, but not a lot too do, or see, outside of the Hotel! with the exception of the Bardo museum.
Great if you like to sit around the pool all day ,even in our winter
4 Star ?????
From a distance, the hotel looked good. Up close, massive amounts of paint were peeling off the walls. The carpet in the dining room was ripped in a few places. The buffet food was cold, and always egg shells in the scrambled egg for breakfast. The waiter service for tea and coffee was very slow. I complained several times about my TV not working in my room, and eventually I gave up, because nothing was done about it.
The lighting seemed very dark in the bars, which suffered terribly from lack of atmosphere.
Staff were friendly, chamber maids cheerful, my room was comfortable, and the brilliant weather made up for everything.
just home from the kenz october november had a great holiday this is my 3rd time there and i have always had a great time i do feel that the kenz could do with a face lift a lick of paint and curtains washed and a few new sofas for the lounge area would not go a miss food is good and always pleanty to choose from having been in the new wing and then in the main hotel i think i would always ask for the new part as this is lovelly and light bed rooms altho it is a bit of a treck from the main reception but the rooms are so much nicer all staff are very freindly and helpfull and can not do enough for you we always go with our freinds and family so there is always lots of us and the dinning room always has a table for us even if its for 8 people i have heard lots off complaints about couples having to share a table with strangers not a thing i would like to do myself the pool area is lovelly and clean and pleanty of sun beds to be had altho you always get the moaners who complain that they can not get a sun bed to them i say get out of your bed sooner and there is no problem i would go back to the kenz a good holiday and a great price
Lovely hotel and staff
Me and my boyfriend went for 1 week in oct, we had never been to Tunisia before, but are definately considering returning. Not only to Tunisia but back to the Royal Kenz. We had a lovely room and the staff were too helpful at times. The food was good to, however we did find sitting with others a bit strange, although it didnt matter to us. The entertainment was ok it was a mixture for all ages but as long as we had some booze we had a good laugh.
No complaints at all
Not having visited Tunisia for 13 years my wife and I did not know what changes there had been so having read Trip Advisor reports we chose to stay for two weeks at The Royal Kenz Hotel.
Well what can I say, this hotel is unbeatable in every way.There was a wide, well prepared food selection,superior bedroom facilities and as a person with mobility disabilities the hotel was well designed with the staff understanding disabled peoples requirements.
Shall we visit again?yes as soon as possible.
Just returned from the Royal Kenz (29 Sept 2004 - Oct 7th 004). Travelled with Thomson stayed for one week, we are a couple aged between 41 and 50.
I first started to go to the Royal Kenz in 1999, i have been to Tunisia a few times and stayed at other hotels both in Skanes, Hammamet and in Port el Kantaoui. The Royal Kenz is the only hotel i would go back to again and again and again.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Kenz for two weeks at the beginning of August 2004. The hotel, which is huge, is located on the outskirts of Port El Kantaoui, about a 25 minute walk from the town. Taxis are however readily available from outside the hotel and relatively cheap (equivalent to £2-£3 for taxi ride into the Port). We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel has magnificant gardens with an adequate amount of sun beds, several bars, a snack bar and two swimming pools. It is a five minute walk from the back of the hotel, down onto the beach (the Royal Kenz has its own section). We however walked a bit further down the beach, and used another hotel's sun beds - we found the water to be a bit nicer there (less seaweed).
Royal kenz should be a 3 ***
the royal kenz is i nice hotal but in need of a good touch paint.I was surprised when my wife and i had to share a dining table with complete strangers.
Great Value for money!!!!
Managed to get a good deal a couple of summers ago and once we arrived you certainly cant fault the place. The hotel was clean throughout and the two pools were large and normally not too packed.
Only downside was a bit of a fight for sunloungers in the morning and the food did get a bit repetitive over the evenings but certainly nothing worth complaining about.
The beach was a 5 minute walk out the back of the hotel and whenever we were there it wasnt too busy.
The hotel is slightly away from things but the town seems to have more taxis than london!
Overall impression of the resort was good, certainly not the liveliest place but certainly a great place to wind down for a week!
