In the afternoon we visited Zarsis, surely one of the scruffiest places we have seen so far with not a lot to recommend it to us apart from a small ...

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. ...
... a camel or horse. By the conclusion of the tour, I (and everyone else) was coated with a thin venire of sand, my hair was matted from dirt as if I had plastered it with hairspray, and I could feel the grittiness of sand in my mouth.
Jerba was a nice place for us to relax for a few days and do a whole lot of nothing, but I would not make it a future vacation destination.
... under the stars. We could not have planned this better. We cooked a nice meal, drank the last of our booze (which included a bottle of Moet champers!!), quite a treat. We went to bed exhausted after a long day........and then........ Cape Towns south-easter struck in Tunisia. About a hour after we went to bed the wind picked up, and we were forced to abandon ship, and take the tent down. Needless to say, we slept in the car, it was a long night!!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Alkantara Thalassa Djerba
I liked the Alkantara. We (family of four with two boys 8 and 10) stayed for two weeks mid-end July. The staff don't speak much English it's true, but they are extremely friendly and if you can speak some French or German, it's fine.
Before going on holiday to this hotel I had read a lot of reviews. Some were negative and some were possitive. Overall I must sat this was one of the best holidays ive had in a long time.
Me, the wife and two kids arrived at 5am on the early hours of a Sunday morning. The hotel is 35 minutes drive from the Lovely Djerba airport. Even at that time the check in and the staff were very good. I was worried after reading reviews concerning the "algie" issue with the sea, let me clear this up, this is not algie, or sewage but a natural dilema facing the hotel, it is seaweed, however, it covers all of about three feet from the beach head into the water.
just had a glorious week at this beautiful hotel, my sister and I wanted a quiet break and thats exactly what we got. Djerba is a relatively new resort for the English but that wasn't a problem the locals were so friendly and loved the English, they really like to speak to you as it improves their Englsh. The hotel was fabulous we were there very early in the season (Easter) so it was probably quieter than in the summer but this didn't spoil anything. Djerba is an island south of the main Tunisian resorts with its own airport, which is large and clean.
Great to get away from it all
fantastic hotel set in a quite location. perfect for getting away from it all. hotel was very clean and airy. rooms are large and comfortable with much needed air con.
fabulous pool with pleanty of sun loungers and parasols. pleanty of food choice for breakfast & evening meal. friendly staff although English is not spoken too well. thalassatherepy centre is very good with loads on offer from massage to manicures.
The feedback on our stay in this hotel (30th october- 5th november 2005)is mixed. There are pros and cons.
I spent a week at this hotel with my boyfriend mid-september.
