Radisson Blu Palace Resort & Thalasso, Djerba
Travel Blogs from Djerba
I got up before the sun came up in Ksar Ghilane so that I could actually see the sun come up. I have seen the sun come up all over the world, and thought it might be fun to see it rise over the desert. (When I spent the night in Wadi Rum in Jordan, I saw the sun set, but I did not see the sun rise … I woke up a little too late.) Anyway, I …
... It took ten minutes to cross the causeway. There were many resorts, akin to Cancun, Brys. As we were running late, we went directly to the caleche place, arriving at 1710. It was windy on the island. Stupid Hugh accidently kicked an adorable white, playful puppy.
The Hotel Djerba Palace was huge and busy with a combination of locals and by and large French tourists. We had porters, placating some. There was only wifi in the lobby and even that was fleeting. Uploading ...

This morning we visited the island of Djerba linked to the mainland by a 7k causeway across a shallow stretch of sea. The island is very low (15m max) & has many scattered houses between what were the oldest olive trees we have ever seen as with most Tunisian dwellings most under construction or semi derelict. The women here where quite distinctive clothes in the form of white tunic dress ...

Day 9 & 10
The following morning we headed towards Djerba, a tourist island near the Libyan border. The roads were good, and after a short ferry trip costing only 0.800 TD (Less than R5) for all of us plus Corrie, we arrive on the island around midday. We found a little place on the beach were a room for 4 was only 4TD more than camping, so we stayed there for two days, within 20m of the sea. ...

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the Radisson, Djerba in March this year and would recommend it for a very relaxing break. The hotel has been very well re-developed and the rooms are modern and comfortable. The spa facilities on site are some of the best we have experienced.
We really enjoyed getting to know the staff. They're all very friendly and always professional, I think they enjoyed practicing their English as much as we did our French!
There was only one other English family at the hotel; most everyone else was from France, Germany or Italy, which we loved.
I spent some time at the Mistral centre on site learning to kitesurf in the massive shallow lake next to the hotel (note: the lake is only there in winter, we heard it dries up in summer). Roger and Brit, who run the centre, are great fun and made learning the new sport really enjoyable.
There are other activities available, as you can see from their web site, but we did hear that a 9-hole golf course is being constructed next to the hotel. We may be going back to try it out next year.
Typical Radisson luxury
What an excellent stay at an hotel with top-notch services with
The plus points are numerous.The interior design is spacious,understated and cathedral-like. There are many little hidey-holes where one can find privacy and at no time is there a sense of hurry to mar your holiday. The rooms are equally spacious,more modern in concept but with comfortable,
uncluttered furnishings. The outer grounds are large with
different pathways leading to various attractions ( beach,
Tennis,in-house restaurants etc.,). The beach is remarkably clean and in a prime position with both in-house bar and snack bar / restaurant easily to hand within no more than 50 yards.
The spa Thalaso spa facilities are second to none and with enough personnel to guarantee little if any waiting or pre-booking.
There is one Main communal restaurant ( Le Ceramique)
which is large and airy with a non-smoking section(which is
disappointingly smaller than the smoking section;not a
surprise considering the predominately French/German
breakdown of the clientele.) The choice and presentation of food is of the highest quality with a discreet presence of ever-helpful
The Management staff are exceptionally helpful,courteous
and willing to help ALL clients with any pet foibles.
Cleanliness within the hotel is second to none with even the beach being swept twice and thrice a day.
The Minuses ( there are always some or we wouldn't be
English ). Don't go expecting a cheap holiday.Prices in house
are comparable with the U.K. and if you're not into the culture
of tipping prepare for a few upsets.Overall I would put a weeks
general tipping for all staff at about £50.00 in total.The Thalasso spa prices are also comparable to U.K.prices.
There is a lack of coherent evening entertainment
programme with guests doing their own thing at their own
pace (no bad thing but not for those who prefer a more structured
approach).Very few signs, food and service descriptions are in English so a smidgeon of French or German would be
There are at least three in-house themed restaurants which are a-la-carte and have to paid for separately.This is
nice for the odd special occasion but does mean that there is
a certain emptiness to most of them because the main
Board inclusive resaurant (Le Ceramique) is the most
Djerba is Muslim by religion and therefore alcohol is
expensive.Beer is about the same price that you'd pay in U.K.
for 33c.c bottle (£2.00) Whisky drinkers please arrange a
mortgage before leaving the U.K.;prices around £10.00 a shot.
Wine is similarly priced to U.K. and water around £1.50 a bottle.
Overall a great hotel if you're not on a really tight budget.
Superbe all the way
We stayed at the SAS Radisson for a long weekend. Only a short flight from Nice, it's THE perfect destination. The Radisson is the only hotel so far (and we've stayed at some 5+ stars hotel around the world) where you truly get spoiled rotten.....the staff are out of this world: very helpful & friendly-but not TOO MUCH (as one experiences in Asia). The rooms are very stylish and modern, pool is great. A must is the SPA, treatments are heavenly, being pampered is the word here....we went to all the restaurants (4) the food is very good and since there are four of them, you have a variety of foods available. From previous travels to Tunisia I have to say things have improved a lot. Great breakfast too, lots of choices. All in all, we highly recommend this hotel.
One teeny tiny criticism : the hairdryers...they are a bit outdated.
Très beau complexe hotelier et de thalasso
Notre séjour était aggrémenté par la gentillesse, la politesse et le professionalisme de l'ensemble du personnel. Il va sans dire que le centre de thalassothérapie Atnénnée est formidable de par les soins dispensés par un personnel compétent; la beauté des installations et la propreté.
Seule ombre au tableau: la gastronomie! Le buffet dinatoire ne correspond aucunement à un hôtel 5 étoiles de luxe et c'est bien dommage. Il faudrait que le direction fasse un bel effort dans la conception culinaire et par ex. aussi dans l'ammeublement de son restaurant "Céramique". C'est pour cette raison que nous ne recommanderons pas ni ne reviendrons dans cet hôtel aussi beau soit-il.
nous avons beaucoup apprécié cet hotel à tel point qu'à peine rentrés,nous avons reservé un nouveau séjour pour la période du 05/04/au 15/0402007. ACCUEIL CHALEUREUX ET PROFESSIONNEL
Personnel poli et respectueux vis-à vis du client.
UN MANAGER SYMPATHIQUE,CONVIVIAL et très professionnel au service du client/
Hotel très bien entretenu,service de chambre nickel
Restauration diversifiee et de qualité:merci pour les produits "bio"
UN centre de thalasso digne d'être cité!
BRAVO à tous
C'est un établissement top!souhaitons qu'il le reste;c'est bien d'avoir les 5 étoiles:c'est mieux de les garder!!!
Tres bon hotel a recommander
tres bon hotel de qualité méritant son classement a recommander.
A superb hotel in every way
My wife and I stayed in this super-stylish, internationally rated 5 star resort during the second week of September 2006, in an ocean-view room.
It is one of the best beach resorts that we have visited in this price range.
In particular, we appreciated the excellent staff, fabulous design, great attention to detail, carefully prepared and high quality food, and overall tranquil ambience.
Both the pool and beach area are wonderful: picturesque, clean, and tranquil.
In short, our entire experience was excellent from start to finish. On this long strip of beach in Djerba, the Radisson is certainly in the best spot. It has no immediate neighbours to one side, and another high-end resort (Movenpick) to the other. Further along the beach, it is certainly more down-market.
If you want elegance, luxury, quality, and relaxation, head to the Radisson. If you want crowds and noise, head elsewhere.
