Tony and I got our wires crossed so I went walkabout, picking up a scooter headlight cover that flew off. I ran into Tony. We still had time for a pre-departure espresso. Our life of independence is over and it's back into group mode.
Tony's humour is often blunt, deadpan and more and more politically incorrect [probably long before meeting me]. He calls Helen of Troy 'Jillian ...

The other outstanding remains on the site was the Sanctuary of Baal. A staircase led to the top of the sanctuary where two yellow and grey veined columns remained. From the top of the steps I had a fabulous view of the entire layout of Thurburbo Majus.
We wound around that back side of the site and came across some really interesting bas relief carvings in the stone. One was of Venus and the other, which was my ...
After a walk back in time we decide that a journey back to the hotel by cab would be preferable to the land train. We don't have any problem finding a cab, sitting just outside the medina under the shade of a tree seems to be a sign that you need a cab!

I visited the hotel in 2004, and sent an amazing 2 weeks there. there wasnt a single problem except maybe in the centre of towns. Its best to cover up when visiting towns, as the men tend to get a little to touchy...
Hotel jinene was deffinatly the best hotel iv been to, and i found the food really nice, but if you dont like cultural then its not your thing!!
I also fell in love with Mario, the entertainment man... He is superb...
The best holiday ever!!
i have to say readng the reviews about the hotel we werent that impressed so didnt really know what to expect when me and my boyfriend got there.
we hit off to a flying start being upgraded to the royal jinene instead of the jinene. weather was ok (hotter than england n e way), staff we all great at the hotel, all the information we asked they gladly TRYED to give us!
i have to say the worst part must have been the food, this was probably due to the fact that the hotel was trying to cater for everybodys taste, for example german, french, finnish and english with a bit of tunisian bits added in. this didnt work, another downside was the amount of old, foreign people who were most arrogant throughout the whole trip. The british people we met there were all so funny, all in all we had a great time. i would advise to couples to go in the summer rather than winter though due to the fact that it is like an old peoples home.
Jinene one of the best
Hotel jinene was a lovely and clean hotel, the staff was great and friendly
the food was great we all loved it even me as i am a vegetarian not been to
a hotel yet that do a good veggie selection so you veggie people out there
you got no worries there is just one little downfall the entertainment was'nt
to brill.The pool is very cold but once you get used to it its not to bad, the
weather was lovely and hot just how i like it it was bout 25c.
Just spent a week at theJinene hotel Sousse.The staff could not do enough for us,wether it be lounging by the pool or on the beach.The restaurant staff were always polite and efficient.The rooms although a little shabby in places were clean,but the maid service was spasmodic and our room had no information regarding the hotels services so i suggest ask if you need to know anything don't presume like we did at times.The dining times for breakfast and dinner could be extended a little i think.A short and reasonsble price taxi ride away are some lovely places to visit.The weather was sunny all week for us so we had a brilliant time and would not hesitate in going back again,for its star rating and price you cant go far wrong.
we have jus returned from our 2 week stay at the hotel jinene,i must say that for a 3 star hotel we found the standard very good , although the entertainment became a little repeatative,the staff were excellent in all cases, the pool was always kept well, having a small section for toddlers and adults who were a tad fearfull to dip into the deeper section,access to jinene beach is easy tho it being a tad small,waiter service on the beach is also very good.the shops on site can b a tad expensive compared to shops out of the complex also the bars n cafes,but still ,, i well worth spending some time there,my partner and i will definately be revisiting the jinene in the future, maybe for a longer stay as the quality was very good.
just a few minutes walk to the left as u enter the beach thee are a few things worth trying ..ie paragliding, banana rides, pedeloes and such , all at very reasonable prices, we enjoyed ourstay and hope you do too.
It was best holiday ever
The hotel is fantastic i have been twice and going again. The entertainment staff are excellent Adel the ents manager has a great team and there always on the go. the staff are extreamley friendly and always happy to help even at 5am, food is fab and pizza's are great.

I love tunisia its great.The hotel is clean and tidy.The food is ok but the cakes get abit sickly.Good entertainment day and night.Shopping abit annoying because they hassel you.
ill definately go back to tunisia jinene hotel.
Hooked for life!!!
We stayed at Hotel Jinene Last week.
I have to say that the despite the basic room amenities, the hotel was fantastic.
All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - nothing was ever too much trouble. It was the kind of service I expect from a 5 star.
The highlight was the entertainment in the evening, It was amazing and we would never have dreamt of going anywhere else!! Mario, James and their boss were second to none, whether you are a family, a couple, travelling on your own or travelling with friends it was geared towards everyone.
The beach was only 5 minutes walk where we could take part in a variety of water sports too.
We will definately return to Tunisia and we would never dream of staying anywhere else but the Hotel Jinene!!
