Ha, see how the english always blame the germans for putting down towels early.......big fat lie, its the ENGLISH......and the Russian, well maybe a few germans to, but mainly the english did that.

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, ...
... restrained & the whole effect was extremely impressive. A short walk from here was the mausoleum of Sidi Sahbi, a friend of Mohammed killed in the Arab invasion in the mid 700s. We then wandered in the medina which was quite small but was of more interest as the stalls were aimed at the locals rather than tourists.
After lunch we went to the Ribat in Sousse, a fortress from the 10th century & had a lecture from ...

I visited the hotel in 2004, and sent an amazing 2 weeks there. there wasnt a single problem except maybe in the centre of towns. Its best to cover up when visiting towns, as the men tend to get a little to touchy...
Hotel jinene was deffinatly the best hotel iv been to, and i found the food really nice, but if you dont like cultural then its not your thing!!
I also fell in love with Mario, the entertainment man... He is superb...
The best holiday ever!!
i have to say readng the reviews about the hotel we werent that impressed so didnt really know what to expect when me and my boyfriend got there.
Jinene one of the best
Hotel jinene was a lovely and clean hotel, the staff was great and friendly
the food was great we all loved it even me as i am a vegetarian not been to
a hotel yet that do a good veggie selection so you veggie people out there
you got no worries there is just one little downfall the entertainment was'nt
to brill.The pool is very cold but once you get used to it its not to bad, the
weather was lovely and hot just how i like it it was bout 25c.
Just spent a week at theJinene hotel Sousse.The staff could not do enough for us,wether it be lounging by the pool or on the beach.The restaurant staff were always polite and efficient.The rooms although a little shabby in places were clean,but the maid service was spasmodic and our room had no information regarding the hotels services so i suggest ask if you need to know anything don't presume like we did at times.The dining times for breakfast and dinner could be extended a little i think.A short and reasonsble price taxi ride away are some lovely places to visit.The weather was sunny all week for us so we had a brilliant time and would not hesitate in going back again,for its star rating and price you cant go far wrong.
we have jus returned from our 2 week stay at the hotel jinene,i must say that for a 3 star hotel we found the standard very good , although the entertainment became a little repeatative,the staff were excellent in all cases, the pool was always kept well, having a small section for toddlers and adults who were a tad fearfull to dip into the deeper section,access to jinene beach is easy tho it being a tad small,waiter service on the beach is also very good.the shops on site can b a tad expensive compared to shops out of the complex also the bars n cafes,but still ,, i well worth spending some time there,my partner and i will definately be revisiting the jinene in the future, maybe for a longer stay as the quality was very good.
It was best holiday ever
The hotel is fantastic i have been twice and going again. The entertainment staff are excellent Adel the ents manager has a great team and there always on the go. the staff are extreamley friendly and always happy to help even at 5am, food is fab and pizza's are great. The pool is very nice and the beach is even better. will defantley be going again this year and next!!
I love tunisia its great.The hotel is clean and tidy.The food is ok but the cakes get abit sickly.Good entertainment day and night.Shopping abit annoying because they hassel you.
ill definately go back to tunisia jinene hotel.
Hooked for life!!!
We stayed at Hotel Jinene Last week.
I have to say that the despite the basic room amenities, the hotel was fantastic.
All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful - nothing was ever too much trouble. It was the kind of service I expect from a 5 star.
The highlight was the entertainment in the evening, It was amazing and we would never have dreamt of going anywhere else!! Mario, James and their boss were second to none, whether you are a family, a couple, travelling on your own or travelling with friends it was geared towards everyone.
The beach was only 5 minutes walk where we could take part in a variety of water sports too.
We will definately return to Tunisia and we would never dream of staying anywhere else but the Hotel Jinene!!
