Travel Blogs from Port El Kantaoui
Enfidha airport is gleaming in the hot sun when we arrive for our flight home. Check in effortless and security, despite the recent troubles, is light touch.
It's a modern day oasis, which is somewhat souless and seeming ...
... refilling drinks, but it is sporadic and seems to happen when the fancy takes them or when guests are about to depart.
Finally the time comes, our meal is over and it's time for the tip. We give some notes to Gracie to give to the waiter. He seems to appreciate the gesture. Slipping the notes into his pocket he disappears into the kitchen and presumably home for the evening.
Our final stop of the day is the costal city of Monastir, which is just over 23km south of Sousse and 33 km from Port El Kantaoui.
Monastir - from past to present
Founded on the ruins of the Punic-Roman city of Ruspina, Monastir has since evolved and developed from a fishing village into a major tourist resort - a familiar story along the Mediterranean coast.
Like a number of ...
... which makes it all the more pleasant for us.
After enjoying the treasures inside the museum we walk around the courtyard or garden terrace oustide. It's good to feel the sun and enjoy the views from the elevated position of the Kasbah. We look over the port, the medina and other parts ...
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!
It's interesting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Miramar Golf Hotel Port El Kantaoui
Chill out break
myself and my wife and son [ 7 ]went to miramar golf in october last year to celebraye my 40th birthday. on arrival we found the hotel quite basic but clean. the room was quite small but clean. food in the restaurant was nothing exciting but edible. The fellow guests were of an older age[ it is not very suitable for younger people as it is very quiet. drink in the bar was dear[ £3.50 a pint]. if you want a quiet holiday with no great expectations this may be the hotel for you.
Ive recently just returned from the Mirramar Golf hotel.My first thoughts were that the hotel seemed fairly quiet...probably just the start of the season tho.!!Anyway in my opinion the hotel entertainment was ptretty poor...Unless you are into karaoke nights and bingo that is...!!!The hotel was fairly expensive for drinks.£2.80 for a pint.Which was'nt of the finest quality beer.The food was average too>Seemed to be the same thing every other day.Beef in sauce.Turkey and sauce.etc.etcAnyway i would not reccomend this place because the entertainment was poor.beer expensive.weather bad.food poor.
I wanted a quiet week to chill and recharge my batteries = it's exactly what i got. Staff friendly, food excellent, facilities no complaints, room average but caught the sun mid afternoon and sat on the balcony ~ no view though.
Upon entry into the hotel it seemed quite nice with a large reception area with sofas etc.
Loved the place
we stayed in the hotel in february, and loved the place. a brand new swimming pool had been installed this year, the entertainment was good every night and
especially the english guy who served in the bar was funny.
A query that you had the staff were alway willing to help and were prompt with the service
overall the place was clean and tidy and towels changed everyday, i would definiately go back to this hotel is it a bit out of the way but only a 20 minute walk to the marina which is very pretty
My love to all at the Miramar golf from James Bond XXXXXXX

What a great stay
What a great place to stay. Second year in a row to this resort and better this time. The hotel was what we expected, the staff were very friendly especially the lad running the english bar (helped make our stay).
Made some good friends and even though the marina is 30 - 35 mins walk away it was easy to find by road or beach.
Watersports on the beach were great.
An all round brilliant time, hopfully go back next year.
The food was a bit samey but being a fussy eater was to my liking.
Such a big let down
What a big let down this stay was, whilst the hotel from the outside looked impressive enough, once inside things changed, there was a constant smell of poo in the air and it attracted many insects-mainly flies, which after a while became a joke, these flies would also be very much a cause of stomach churning when faced with your meals(flies would be seen walking over the food). The Hotel staff were friendly and had no complaints about the general running of things there. It should also be noted if you are thinking about a visit to the area be prepared for a constant barrage of approaches from the locals selling their wears!!!!!
Just came back from Port el Kantaoui and it is everything that was promised, great beach, beautiful harbour (sorry Marina) with lovely little shops and nobody dragging you in to buy anything. Great restaurants, lovely friendly people and things to do for the children (paragliding, Aqua Palace, go karting, quad biking) etc.
The hotel looks very impressive on arrival,although the road was being dug out to be replaced. As with any other property things need to be maintained. Although at the height of season I thought this possibly the wrong time to be making any major alterations. However this must be the only real negative that I have to say.
