Monastir

This morning we visited Monastir, which is just south of Sousse. The town has a fine ribat (fort) built by the Muslims to defend against the potential Christian invaders in the 10th century. It has been extensively restored & was used in "The Life of Brian" as a set. The major attraction apart from beaches is the Bourguiba mausoleum that he had built for himself during his long presidency. It houses the tombs of his family also & is ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews SENTIDO Rosa Beach Monastir

    Una buona vacanza

    from

    Siamo appena ritornati da una settimana di vacanza al Rosa Beach. L'hotel era impeccabile, gli asciugamani e le lenzuola venivano cambiati ogni giorno, il cibo era nella norma, anche se non eccezionale, ma la scelta era ogni giorno molto ampia e non ci è mai capitato lo stesso pasto due volte. La birra costava pochissimo ma gli alcolici erano esosi: 6 sterline per un vodka e coca...conviene portarsi una bottiglia da casa (senza farsi scoprire, però). Il vino aveva un prezzo più ragionevole: 7 sterline a bottiglia. Non c'era nulla nei dintorni e abbiamo dovuto accontentarci dell'animazione, che non era il massimo. I ragazzi lavoravano, però, sodo ed erano felici che gli ospiti partecipassero alle varie attività. Non c'erano molti Britannici, gli ospiti erano perlopiù Francesi e Russi. Il personale era molto gentile ma non parlava poco inglese. I taxi non costavano molto, ma definite sempre il prezzo prima di salire. L'addetto alla security vi dirà quanto dovreste pagare. Sousse è una vera e propria esperienza e le persone del posto cercheranno di trascinarvi nei negozi: è un po' un incubo. Se siete in cerca di una vacanza tranquilla, lontano dal trambusto, questo è l'hotel che fa per voi, ma non aspettatevi un'area ristorante, troverete piuttosto una sala bar, ma il cibo era impeccabile e fresco, con un'ottima varietà. La colazione era un po' deludente, non c'erano uova e pancetta, solo formaggio e pane e tante marmellate...niente di grave, comunque, solo, non c'era quello che piaceva a me. Il soggiorno al Rosa Beach è stato, comunque, stupendo.

    Highly recommended

    from

    The Hotel is welcoming, clean, the staff very pleasant. We classed it as a three star, more than a four star. The Buffet food selection is good and faclities excellent. This is a highly recommended holiday. We booked through last minute.com (First Choice) and the organisers were very helpful. Ok, not too many British use the Hotel, but who goes abroad to find British people. The few we found in the hotel were great company, as were many of the French and Belgians. Haggling in the market towns of Monastir and Sousse is too say the least, 'interesting'. Expect to pay perhaps a sixth to a tenth of what they originally ask for, but the haggling is done in good spirit. Great deals on all leather goods, shoes, bags jackets etc. As soon as you are spotted as British, expect the remark "Lovely Jubbly", Can get a little wearing, but it's part of their fun and the fun of bartering. If you don't like being touched and guided by the owners into their shops to 'just look', don't go to the markets!! We only went to the resort for a week and came back home with good memories and would certainly go again. One word of warning, Try to get a room away from the disco (next door). It does go on until 4.30 am (6.00am on Saturdays) but after we changed rooms from day 2, didn't hear a sound. As a last minute holiday, it was inexpensive and not dissapointing.

    Sehr empfehlenswert

    from

    Das Hotel hat uns mit offenen Armen empfangen. Es ist sehr sauber und die Angestellten sind sehr nett. Wir würden es eher als ein Drei Sterne Hotel einstufen, nicht als ein Vier Sterne Hotel. Die Auswahl am Büfett ist gut und die anderen Einrichtungen exzellent. Ich kann einen Urlaub hier sehr empfehlen.

    Wir haben den Urlaub last minute über das Internet gebucht. Das Hotel hat einige britische, französische und belgische Gäste.

    In den Städten Monastir und Sousse ist es sehr interessant auf den Märkten zu handeln. Ihr sollte erwarten vielleicht 1/6 oder 1/10 vom "Originalpreis" zu zahlen. Das Handeln findet allerdings sehr gut gelaunt statt.

    Es gibt tolle Schnäppchen bei Ledersachen, Schuhen, Taschen und Jacken.

    Falls ihr es nicht mögt von Geschäftsbesitzern angetatscht zu werden und "sanft" in ihr Geschäft geführt zu werden um "zu gucken", dann geht nicht auf die Märkte.

    Wir waren hier nur für eine Woche, aber würden gerne wiederkommen.

    Eine kleine Warnung: Versucht ein Zimmer zu bekommen, das nicht in der Nähe der Diskothek ist. Die ist bis 4 Uhr morgens unter der Woche und am Samstag bis 6 Uhr morgens auf. Wir waren direkt neben der Disko, aber haben dann am nächsten Tag ein neues Zimmer erhalten und nichts mehr gehört. Dieser Urlaub war nicht teuer und definitiv keine Enttäuschung.

    Un hôtel pas si mal (mais pas d'Anglais)

    from

    Nous avons séjourné à l'hôtel Rosa Beach pendant une semaine, c'était bien mais sa clientèle est en majeure partie française et allemande (il y a peu d'Anglais). Le personnel est amical sauf le manager du bar de la plage qui est horrible. La nourriture est correcte mais le petit déjeuner n'était pas terrible et je ne suis pas quelqu'un de difficile; si je dois retourner dans cet hôtel j'emporterai avec moi des céréales pour mon petit déjeuner, les toasts sont terribles tout comme leurs oeufs brouillés ou bouillis, leurs gâteaux ou leurs plats a base de riz.

    L'hôtel est joli et propre et très proche de l'aéroport. Nous avions réservé sur Internet et ils demandaient 20 livres pour le transfert. Nous sommes déjà allés 4 fois en Tunisie alors nous savions que l'hôtel était proche de l'aéroport, nous avons donc pris un taxi et nous avons donné un billet de 5 livres au chauffeur il avait l'air très content et cela a pris 3 min, mais mettez vous d'accord sur le prix dès le départ.

    L'hôtel est sur la plage. Je retournerai dans cet hôtel car le prix n'est vraiment pas cher, nous avons payé 180 livres pour 7 nuits en demi-pension, mais je préférerais aller au Royal Kenz car il y avait beaucoup d'enfants au Rosa jusqu'à 10h du soir et plus, ce que nous n'avons pas vraiment apprécié mais si vous avez des enfants et vous voulez partir une semaine au soleil pour pas cher et que vous pouvez l'obtenir sur Internet, allez-y !!

    Not a bad hotel but no british

    from

    we stayed for one week in rosa beach the hotel was fine but catered for french and german as hardly any british stay there, the staff friendly except for horrible manager of beach bar,food ok but struggled with breakfast and in not a fussy person,if i stayed there again i would take cereal with me as toast a big hassle or its scrambled egg boiled egg cake or rice stuff,hotel nice and clean very close to airport, we booked online and they wanted £20 transfer, we have been to tunisia 4 times so knew how close hotel was and jumped into a taxi gave driver £5 note he was very happy and we got there in 3 minutes but settle on price before you get in .its right on beach, i would go there again for very cheap week away we paid £180 for 7 nights half board,but id rather go to royal kenz as rosa was FULL of kids up til 10pm and later which we didnt like much but if youve got kids and want a cheap week in sun and can get it online go for it !!

    Tunisia is great, this hotel isn't

    from

    We booked our holiday to Rosa Beach Hotel on the Internet and admittedly it was a cheap booking. We booked after reading a number of reviews that positioned this Hotel as a 4 star. Being a seasoned traveller I realised that 4 star for North Africa would not be of a standard that you would get in other more developed countries, however, nothing could prepare me for what can be described only as a Butlins holiday camp environment with good weather. More on that later.

    On arrival we got a Taxi from the Airport to the Hotel or though, to be honest, you could easily have walked as it is literally accross the road and as such the Hotel has more aircraft flying arround it than mosquitoes. In the Hotel reception we were greeted with the news that the 2 rooms we had booked were not available and that we only had a single family room until they could sort it out the next day. Not much we could do about this as the Hotel was fully booked. We were escorted to our room by the Bellboy through what can only be described as a stinking cestpit of a corridoor which was pitch black, probably to hide the corpses of the previous guests, who would rather kill themselves than stay out the full term of their holiday. It stank of rot and damp.

    The following day we were moved to a suite with a seaview and although this was better it still was not what had been booked but we were content with this as we intended to spend as little time in the room as possible. We were also offered a free upgrade from half board to full board and decided to turn this down having sampled the food in the restaurant the previous night. It can best be described as adequate. The service is good by friendly staff but this is not enough for what claims to be a 4 star hotel.

    There is a reception bar area that offers a selection of drinks from local beer to your basic spirits. Not a great selection and they have no idea how to make a cocktail. We ordered a Pina Colada which tasted nothing like the afor mentioned cocktail. The service in the bar area is at best slow.

    There is a barbeque grill restarant on the beach which serves basic food such as pizza and burgers. I would recomment the daily fish which was ok but again the service is hampered by the fact that there is only one waiter who seems to know what he is doing.

    Back to the Butlins analogy. The Hotel seems to cater for the type of guest that finds the Birdy song and Agadoo the height of contemporary musical acheivement in the last century. If you are the type of person who enjoys Karaoke and would like to learn the "Hotel dance" so that you can perform it every night while dressed in your Union Jack shorts then this is the place for you.

    You will be bombarded by a constant dirge of 70's and 80's music that is on a loop and it will drive you mad until it is interrupted for the daily practice session of the "Hotel Dance". Every evening you will have the opportunity to watch the animation team "entertain" you. This is comical to say the least as they try to do a rendition of Riverdance followed by the "Hotel Dance".

    The only postives about this Hotel are that Taxi fares away from it are cheap. It will cost you £5 to travel to the local Town of Souse, where you can find a number of excellent restaurants. Le Surfin is fantastic for seafood and Le 3 Dauphins is excellent for continental and local cuisine although sitting outside is not recommended as it is next to the main road.

    Further afield you can visit Port El Kantouai for about £10 by Taxi, which is a tourist trap with a selection of reasonable restaurants arround a central fountain.

    The Hotel offers a small selection of watersports on a beach which is filthy. At one point I stood on a piece of broken glass on the beach.

    I would give this Hotel a 2 star rating and although I would visit Tunisia again I certainly would not stay at this Hotel. I cannot recommend highly enough that you do not make the mistake of visiting this Hotel if you are planning to visit Tunisia. This place is only for the hardcore Benedorm brigade.

    Unas buenas vacaciones

    from

    Acabamos de volver de una estancia de una semana en el complejo turístico Rosa Beach, el hotel está inmaculado, cambian las toallas y las camas todos los días, la comida está bien, nada del otro mundo, pero con mucha variedad de elección cada día, nunca comimos lo mismo dos veces. La cerveza es muy barata pero los licores son muy caros, unas 6 libras (9 euros) por un vodka con coca cola, vale la pena comprar una botella antes de ir (pero que no te pillen). El vino salía a 7 libras (10 euros) la botella. No había ningún sitio en los alrededores, así que hay que contentarse con el entretenimiento del hotel, que no es el mejor, pero los chicos trabajan muy duro y quieren que participes. No hay muchos ingleses allí, la mayoría son franceses y rusos. La gente es muy amable pero no hablan inglés muy bien. Los taxis son baratos pero siempre hay que fijar el precio antes de subirte a uno. El tipo de seguridad te dirá cuánto debes pagar. Sousse es toda una experiencia y los lugareños intentarán meterte en las tiendas, que es como una pesadilla. Si quieres unas vacaciones tranquilas sin bullicio, éste es el hotel para ti, no te esperes que tenga un ambiente de restaurante, es más como un café-bar, pero no se puede uno quejar de la comida, hay una gran variedad y siempre está fresca, el desayuno decepciona un poco, sin bacon ni huevos, sólo queso y pan y mucho jamón, pero es mi gusto personal. Lo pasé muy bien en el Rosa Beach.

    Excellet, mais peut mieux faire

    from

    Mon séjour s'est déroullé du 09 juillet au 23 juillet 2006.

    J'ai particulièrement aprécié :

    - Le fait qu'il ne soit pas loin de l'aéroport, pas de long trajet sur les routes tunisiennes esquintées

    - L'accueil à l'hôtel

    - la gentillesse des employés, toujours polis

    - Le service de chambre, rien à signaler

    - La restauration, bien présentée, variée et de qualité

    - le patron qui surveillait constamment tout, jusqu'à la propretée de la plage

    - Les activités fournies par l'équipe Animation actuelle,

    - Particulièrement, Le 14 juillet ou les Français ont été très à l'honneur, étant Français, çà m'a beaucoup touché,

    - décoration partout de drapeaux français

    - toute la journée, il y a eu des joutes inter-nationalités

    - Le soir, une animation, à même la plage puis l' entrée gratuite à la boite de nuit

    - ma chambre était côté mer, peut être est que celà expliquait que je ne faisais pas attention aux avions qui décollaient à 2 kms ? bien que rares la nuit

    J'ai moins aimé :

    - le fait que pour avoir de la lumière ou laisser le climatiseur allumé dans la chambre, il faille laisser la clé dans un boitier-contact. Ce système, s'il empêche aux gens d'oublier d'éteindre les lumières quand ils partent à un effet pervers qui prive de courant la personne qui reste dans la chambre. Par exemple, j'allais prendre le petit déjeuner bien avant ma femme qui était couchée et j'étais obligé de prendre la clé pour ne pas la réveiller. Mais si entre temps elle se réveillait, elle n'avait pas de lumière dans les toilettes.

    - C'est le seul point d'ombre que j'ai décellé et j'espère qu'il vont y réfléchir

    Good Holiday

    from

    Just returned from a weeks stay in Rosa beach, the hotel is spotless the towels and beds are cleaned everyday, the food is ok nothing too flash, but a lot of choice on a daliy basis never had the same meal twice. Beer is really cheap but any spirits are very expensive £6 for a vodka and coke, it is worth while buying a bottle before you go. ( dont get caught though). Wine worked out at £7.00 a bottle. Nothing at all around so you are stuck with the entertainment, which is not the best but the kids worked really hard, and like you to join in. Not many english people there mostly French and Russian. People are really friendly but do not speak much english. Taxi's are cheap but always arrange a price before you get in. The guy on security will tell you how much you should pay. Sousse is an experience and the locals will try and get you into the shops which is a bit of an nightmare.

    If you want a quiet holiday away from the hussle this is the hotel for you, don't expect it to be restaurant enviroment as it is more like a cafe, but you can not fault the food, you have excellent choice and it is always fresh, Breakfast was a little disappointing no bacon and eggs only Cheese and bread and lots of jams, but that is my personal choice. I had a wonderful time in the Rosa Beach.
