... dirty, stray animals, crumbling in parts, chaos in the streets, and watch where you walk. A country where you have to make sure to carry your own toilet paper - never a good sign. The first night, Tunisia was playing Cameroon in a World Cup qualifying match. It was an exciting 0-0 tie, but at least people were out not drinking. I had a decent meal, but everything was closed by 10:00 p.m. The second night was even slower without the game.
... preservation. The tessera (stones) were tiny & the detail in them was amazing comparable with anything we have ever seen. The craftsmen & artists of the area were famous throughout the Roman Empire. Apparently only the Bardo museum in Tunis has as good works. Our guide then led us through the old quarter back to our hotel in Sousse. Still no sense re the AC so we slept with the balcony door open & were visited by the mosquitoes much to Dick's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberostar Diar El Andalous Port El Kantaoui
Well, firstly i will say that no to all the reviewers that this is not a five star hotle, but in case it has escaped your mind this is a third world country! need i say more! You must be dissalusioned if you think you will get the ritz for the minima prices you pay here, so please come off it!!
Myself and my girl friend have recently returned from our holiday. Tunisia is a very different country compared to the UK, and the salesmen are extrememly friendly,yet very 'in-your-face'. The holiday overall was a pleasant experience, and we would conider going back again. The hotel overall was superb, and the food was excellent, with a wide variety of choice.
We came back yesterday from Tunisia, having had a very relaxing week's holiday. We booked last minute through Panorama, and it was a bargain.
Me(15) and my mum (53) went and found that we met a wide variety of people, we made some great friends. the hotel is beatuiful, the staff are friendly and the beach (a few yards aways) is stunning. it was ashame that at the time we went it was to cold. Even thought it was to cold for the beach and outside pool, the indoor pool was lovely and warm. the sauner was great!!! we recomend that you go on the 2day desert trip. The experience can only be called awsome. The hotel was fine for small children but the trip involves alot of coach travel, walking and climbing. I would say children 6+ who can sit and be patient and who will not act up.
We were very pleased with the Diar El Andalous (DEA) Hotel and enjoyed a relaxing break. We arrived on Sunday 9th October on the 5* allocation on arrival deal with Panorama. Having read the review of 20th June from the Cornwall trip advisor, I was quite content to learn that we were to be accommodated in DEA and as our stay progressed I was impressed by the accuracy of the June review.
In response to the review below, we also just returned from Diar El Andalous on Sunday morning - so we were there the same week and do recall the arrival of the paramedics on the beach on Saturday.
I would not go back to the Diar El Andalous (DEA), (nor Tunisia in general). My concerns relate to DEA's cleanliness, the poor quality of the half-board food, questionable health & safety and the general attitude of staff. All in all, this dated hotel should NOT be portrayed as 5 star.
My wife and I booked with Panorama (online) about 4 weeks before travelling for 5 star half board alllocated on arrival flying from Exeter in June 2005. We paid £319 which we thought was pretty good from a small regional airport. We arrived at the Daer El Andalous about midnight with one other couple and we're booked in quickly and effficiently. Incidentally the other lady was in a wheelchair and was very happy with the way hotel was laid out and the way she was looked after by the staff.
