... to the weather in the UK.
We were the first hotel to be dropped off by the transfer bus. The first impressions of the hotel were very good. The grounds were well cared for and it looked beautiful.
After a brief welcome and registration at the hotel, we went in search of 2086 - our home for the next 7 days. A comfortable twin bed room with a balcony overlooking the mountains greeted us as we ...
... immediately for 2 hours after swimming in the sea, then we woke up to watch the sun set.
This trip was alost the best trip that i had during this exchange, it was so nce to travel in just a group of 3 and we were all very spontaneous. we didn't have any plans nor did any research before hand. We just follow the lonely planet as we went. I wish i can go just by the 3 of us again to a trip in the next coming 2 weeks... :)
... best. (sounds like my love life when i was a teenager) the moment you lift the camera to look some but not all locals quite rightly get annoyed. I cheat and use a decent separate zoom lens some shots quite a few are on this album.
Decided to go really early got there 0700 by taxi 22 dinars both ways including tip, same taxi picked me up at 0900, i gave him a 20 and he said he'd come back???? Mine did but may be ...
... bit of time, as was a bit mazey and had nice views. Enjoyed it in here.
Taxi (15DN) to Sousse. We wouldnt normally get taxis like this, but with four of us it was an easy option. Medina in Sousse was much bigger than in Monastir and walls on outside were impressive. Ribat was less interesting though, but still good views across to the Kasbah and ocean. Had lunch in a small cafe, just inside walls on far side ...
Our last day in Port El Kantaoui, flying back home tomorrow morning. Spent the whole day at the beach, relaxing and enjoying the sun while we can.
In the evening - another expensive but amazing visit in Le Meditarrenee. Had a delicious vegetable gratin (Pete wanted to try it for the taste and ended up eating loads and paying compliments to the chef!) and some French-style beef (Pete says it was also amazing) and a ...

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....
