... He seems to be almost venerated by the people & his times are seen as a kind of golden age. We wandered in the medina with narrow passages between the houses & enjoyed seeing the range of products available.
After lunch, back in Sousse, we went to the ribat to see the recently re-opened museum of 2nd century AD mosaics & artefacts taken from villas in the area, in its courtyard. These were truly stunning, in size, ...
Jens and I flew out of Düsseldorf into Enfidha, Tunesia. The plane was very small and hot. From above it totally looked like we were landing in the ocean, but luckily there was an airport on land :-). It rained when we arrived and I was not happy about that. I wanted the sun, but it got warmer the next days. We spend a lot of time at the beach, and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marhaba Palace Hotel Port El Kantaoui
the hotel is good. rooms serviced daily. with hairdryers in bathrooms. Staff fantastic. Table in restaurant is allocated at start of stay. down side is food is hit and miss.
Just got back from a week at this hotel and would definitely look to go back.
Going back for more
we will be returning to the marhaba palace in june 2005 for the 4th year running. it is a great hotel and the service is always excellent. the refurbishment for your information has been going on for the past 3 years but has never caused us any bother. we have met a number of people who return year after year. don't expect an aiya nappa type holiday it is a wonderful relaxing quiet holiday. the night life is there if you want it but after an exhausting day by the pool it's an earlyish night. all the waiters are great . see ali by the pool and he will sort out your sun beds. sushu and maka in the dinning room will look after you and shakib will ply you with drinks all night. anyone going mid june will see you there.

Just got back last night
Hotel is still being refurbished and we were lucky to have one of the new rooms. some people didnt. Food was plentifull and tasty. Full board is great value for money. Facilities were good. Our two teens loved the nightclub which was busy every night. On site golf course was perfect for pre dinner exercise. Staff are a delight. Only low point was the weather but as this is a hotel review then nuff said. Position of hotel is perfect for beach and town.
Once tried, never forgotten
I shall never forget the overall amazing experience from this Hotel. The staff are all excellent, the quality of service, cleanliness and the facilities are faultless.
This is easily the best holiday I have had, ever. I can't wait to go back again!
Exellent service throughout
Dinning room staff are brilliant and look after you no matter what
Hotel right on the beach with again great service with whte coated and dicky bowed staff. The security man takes good care of you and brings you your sunbeds (free) and anything you need just give him a call. Meals are fantastic with your own personal table and waiters for your entire stay. We are looking forward to our return there very soon
By far one of the better hotels in the resort, gardens & grounds were very well kept, the hotel staff were all very freindly. Meals were to a faily high standard although the main restaurant was being refurbished at the time of our visit so we had all meals in the breakfast bar. Rooms were very well kept (beware of "single" rooms - very limited view!) best views are from 2nd floor up. All room`s have balcony, air conditioning, t.v (only 2 english news channels though) bath/shower w.c and mini fridge. Try to get one of the larger rooms, these have 2 balconies!
Value for money
7th Feb 2005. A very good spacious hotel where the staff were helpful and courtious. Good size rooms with a first class room service. The rooms on the front of the hotel get the sun most of the day, where rooms on the back of the hotel with a sea view were not as fortunate. A variety of good food. The American Bar was a pleasant retreat in the evening.
Large package holiday hotel in the resort of Port El Kantaoui. Booked through Thompson who were exellent. About 1/2 hour transfer from Monastir airport. Location excellent - direct access onto nice sandy beach with hotel bar/restaurant on edge of beach. Watersports available. Nice outdoor pool area, reasonable indoor pool and sports facilities. Food above average for area (buffet starter and al a carte main) although room service/late night food virtually non existant. 2 bars which serve cheap drinks and provide "entertainment" each night. Rooms large and clean with reasonable size balcony. Ones with Seaview don't seem to get the sun. Resort nicer than many of the surrounding areas and this hotel appears the best placed with access to beach and distance to Marina. If you want a clean hotel with reasonable standards in a good location then you cant really go wrong. Just expect coach loads of tourists.
