... that sells refreshing mint tea, so we are forced to quench our thirst from a can.
We're flying back to London Gatwick on a charter flight TOM 353 which is scheduled to depart at 12:05 and arrive at 15:10. Insha'Allah.
... to our table and dishes cleared away with a flourish.
There must be some sign that marks us out as departing guests and an expectation that we'll leave a tip. Unlike the dining room, where tables are reserved and looked after by a specific waiter, guests sit at any table in the breakfast room and tables are cleared by whichever waiter appears to fancy a break from talking! Unfortunately their performance is in vain and we leave without dropping the tip they ...
... ve not had bad service, it's just that the reaturant is self-service, with guests helping themselves from the buffet and waiters relegated to clearing away. It can't give them much job satisfaction, just clearing away dirty dishes, no opportunity to tell people about what is on the menu and what they'd recommend.
Occasionally there is a florusih of activity, helping people to carry ...
Arriving back at the hotel I head for the water dispenser adjacent to the bar and quench my thirst.
It sure was hot out there and unfortunetly I was without money so couldn't stop off for a drink on the road from Sousse.
So after a shower and change of clothes, I was actually dripping wet, I feel a lot better and can genuinely put my feet up!
This morning Sue, Josh and Grace are going cruising on a catamaran out of Port El Kantaoui.
Three hours sailing in the Med is a nice way to relax, especially when the captain drops anchor which means that it's time to go for a dip in the azure sea to cool off. After a refreshing swim the cruise continues and the catamaran head back to port!

We almost cancelled this holiday after reading the reviews, but glad we did'nt because we had such agreat time and would recommend it to all our friends. We took our three children who loved every minute and the animation team were great keeping them occupied. All the staff spoke english so i can not understand the bad reviews saying that no one speaks english. Weather was great but getting too hot on the last day 43 degrees and was forever running round after the kids to keep them creamed, highest factor recommended.
My partner and I just got back from Le zenith hotel complex. We went for two weeks and the weather was fantastic. Some days were 35+. We decided to go all inclusive and the normal we would have expected food allday long, however the food is only available between set times. The food in the buffet restaurant was good except for the meat where we found it uncooked. At the end of our first week he got food poisoning and was very poorly for four days. We called the local doctor and he claimed it was viral infection. I also suffered with this but not the same extent. We heard plenty of similar stories as we were one of the only couple to be there for two weeks.!!!! watch the food!! make sure that you get sealed bottles of water too, as they tend to fill up empty bottles and hand them over to you. We had booked a trip to the sahara which was great- a lot of travelling but we saw so much!! However our rep took our money for this on the first day and would not give us a refund as he was so sick!!!! I came back with a great tan but we were not impressed at all!!
I just returned from a week in Tunisia and stayed at the Le Zenith. I travelled there on my own and even though I was one of the only english speaking guests there I cannot express how welcome I was made to feel. The rooms are basic, but very clean and the all inclusive was better than most places I've been. And yes, you can have more than one drink with each meal. The waitstaff was also wonderful and would always make you feel welcome. The Animation team was great and I loved watching them interact with the children! Even though the hotel is a 3 star the hospitality deserves the rating of a 5 star!
If you have a chance to go on the Sahara excursion, it is well worth it. And special thanks go to Jamil, Abbul, and of course, Shems the driver :) Superb!!
Great value beach (almost) hotel
We spent three days here, and had a great time. This hotel is NOT on the beach as some ads (and even some reviews) might lead you to believe. It is about a 10 min walk from the hotel to a beach that the hotel seems to have abandoned.
This is not a five star property, and it's getting a little threadbare in anticipation of a remodeling scheduled for next winter. Other than this, no complaints. The people are friendly (even to non-French speakers, despite what another reviewer experienced), the rooms are large and airy, the buffet is excellent and served something different each day, including fresh in-season vegetable and local specialties.
We highly recommend this hotel.
Just got back from the zenith north hammermet it was excellent value .
We went in the third week in March. Booked the holiday at the very last minute. It was for a couple and I will try and be as honest as I can in my review.
We stayed in Le Zenith over Easter and had a really nice stay. The weather was very variable - it was hot all the time but not always sunny and there was quite a wind some days.
stayed at the le zenith dec 04....lovely hotel..clean. indoor swimming was lovely and warm....went ai. food very good, nice selection of foods. Xmas eve good entertainment and a 5 course meal served. Entertainment was excellent, kept kids busy most of the day and evening.......transfer from tunis airport by taxi took approx 45 mins....Outdoor pools looked very nice, but weather too cold to venture outside ...will definately stay at the zenith again but in the summer....
