... lines & large coloured squares, a head scarf & a straw hat on top. It is quite a crowded place famous for its Fort dating from Roman & mediaeval times & its old Jewish Synagogue which apparently is a place of pilgrimage. This is guarded by armed police & we had to go through a half hearted bag search & detector to enter it. The design appears unusual to us as it has adjacent rooms for women & men rather than a ...

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. ...
... it was low season, we didn’t see all that Jerba has to offer. But I’m pretty sure Jerba doesn’t have all that much to offer. I learned that first-hand when Ed and I took a quad car tour of the island.
A quad car is like a dune buggy, with seats for two people (one driver), four wheels, a windshield, a roll bar, and not much else. We zipped around that island with our guide and ...
... weather was a bit warmer! We visited the oldest Synagogue in Africa, very interesting!!
Besides that, the island is mainly a holiday resort for Europeans in the summer, so we only spent two days there.
Next stop was Tatatouine, to visit the old fortified Berber villages. Worth the visit, a few of the Star Wars scenes were filmed here.
Last night we camped about 20km out of town, the scene was set! We headed off the tar road into a few hills nearby, and set ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn by Radisson Ulysse Resort & Thalasso Djerba
This is a sophisticated 5 star hotel, located just 20 minutes from Djerba airport and 10 minutes from the town of Houmt Souk (only 3 Euros by taxi). The hotel is located on a sandy beach with (in July) the warmest sea you will find anywhere in the world. The hotel itself is spotless, with all the facilities you could possibly want, including a very good buffet restaurant (for breakfast and dinner), a well equipped fitness centre and a spa that offers a wide range of treatments at a reasonable price. The service is efficient and friendly. Most of the guests are French, German and Swiss, with couples and young families predominating. There is relatively little nightlife and no organized entertainment, which makes the hotel a perfect destination for those seeking a quieter holiday. Highly recommended.
Nous rentrons à peine d'un séjour d'une semaine au Movenpick Ulysse Palace de Djerba, que nous avions choisi après plusieurs heures de recherche sur Internet et lectures de témoignages sur TripAdvisor (comme quoi).
Nous (64 et 62 ans) avons séjourné 2 semaines en juillet 2006 a l'hotel Moevenpick Ulysse Palace avec notre petit-fils (7 ans). Nos impressions sont contrastées :
Just what we wanted
I wanted to celebrate my 40th birthday at the beach - so we stayed for eight nights at the Movenpick. We booked one of the junior suites and were glad to have the sitting area and the big closet. We had a room directly facing the ocean which was better than the rooms that had a side-view. The front desk service was good - but we LOVED the extra special room service - especially on my birthday night. The breakfast service was very poor and avoid the buffet dinner in the large dining room was not good. We prefered eating at the other two restaurants. We took a scooter ride in order to see the rest of Djerba - which was wonderful.
Nous avons passé une semaine dans cet hotel début avril 2006. Nous ne pouvons que vous le conseiller vivement. malgre notre arrivée a 4h du matin, une collation nous attendait dans notre chambre. Celle ci était très agréable (vue jardin) propre et calme. La nourriture de la demi pension (buffet) est excellente et variée. Elle ne comprend cependant pas les boissons (75cl d'eau env 1,5euros). Nous n'avons pas été malades du tout.
Really enjoyed the Movenpick
My wife and I stayed for one week in March. Hotel was very clean, staff generally helpful and friendly. Our biggest gripe was the limited amount of English spoken. We found it difficult to communicate at times. There was no local information available in English. The majority of guests were either French or German, not necessarily a bad thing.
We enjoyed any meals that we ate there. We did dine in some of the other hotels in the area. Again, lack of proficient English speaking staff was a problem.
Overall we really enjoyed ourselves, and would happily return.
I have been several times to this hotel. At least twice a year for about 5 years. Last time I went there with my wife and a couple of friends.
After being so pleased with the Movenpick in Luxor we choose the Movenpick Ulysse for our first visit in Tunisia. We had a nice stay that fullfilled all our requirements : a relaxing week with our children with no hassle.
