You could easily take 2 of this huge hotel complex's 5 stars away, as it is an old and certainly not luxurious establishment. Having said that, it is a comfortable hotel with many facilities for those who are into their sports and who thus like to make the most of their free time.

    Location 6.75 /10

    The El Mouradi Palace enjoys a seafront location in a touristy part of Port El Kantaoui. It is found 1,6 mi away from the centre on one of the area's main thoroughfares, and although it does get busy with traffic, it has a pedestrian walkway. You'll find a 36-hole golf course just opposite the hotel, whilst the towns of Sousse, a typical traditional Tunisian town, and Hammamet, a very touristy coastal town, are some 6 mi and 43,5 mi away, respectively. As far as airports are concerned, Monastir is about 22 mi away whilst Tunis is 84 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel has just over 450 guest rooms that include 40 triples, 8 quadruples, 4 Junior Suites, 10 Suites and a Presidential Suite. The remainder consists of standard double rooms with a floor area of around 20m². All rooms have air conditioning, a balcony, satellite television (broadcasting twenty or so channels), a hair dryer, a mini refrigerator (which can be stocked on request) and a free safe, among other things. Finally, while most of the rooms overlook the gardens, 120 have a view of the sea and 90 overlook the pool. The rooms, and indeed the bathrooms, are large and comfortable but are not exactly what you might expect of a 5 star hotel, particularly as the curtains, duvets, and furniture are all old-fashioned. The suites, for their part, are even larger and feature slightly more modern furniture and decor. Some of them also have a lounge area furnished with leather sofas and a small, well-equipped kitchen area where you can prepare and eat your own meals.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel was built in 1995 and was completely renovated in 2001. Whether it be the furniture being renewed or certain facilities being refurbished, changes are made every year though, as is the case with most hotel complexes of this size. Nevertheless, the hotel still feels old, both as a result of some of the facilities (which show signs of neglect, such as the need for some repainting) and as a result of the furniture in the guest rooms and in some of the extremely outdated lounge areas. The hotel consists of a majestic looking 5 storey main building set amid a total area of 100,000m², including 35,000m² of greenery. The hotel's more noteworthy facilities include two outdoor swimming pools (one for children) and an indoor one with a jacuzzi and a children's section, three tennis courts (two of which are lit) and a fitness centre, among others.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's main restaurant, the Las Mimosas, serves all three meals of the day as a buffet of international cuisine, the quality and variety of which leave something to be desired, although the lunchtime dishes and the desserts are particularly good. The hotel also has an à la carte restaurant, an Italian restaurant and a beach restaurant, as well as a piano bar, a poolside bar, an Arabian cafe, a disco, two other bars and various lounges where you can relax and enjoy a drink.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel boasts direct access to the beach, and whilst loungers, parasols and air mattresses are provided free of charge for guests staying at the El Mouradi Palace, there is a 10 dinar (4,5 pounds) deposit required for the use of towels. The sand and waters here are clear virtually all year-round, although you will find some seaweed at certain times of the year.

    To know

    If you're not a fan of carpeting, you won't be very impressed with the guest rooms, which, with the exception of the bathrooms, are carpeted throughout. This also goes for many of the hotel's communal areas, including the piano bar and other lounge areas on the ground floor, though you will find some marble and granite floors as well. The thalassotherapy centre, which is certainly worth a visit to indulge in a treatment, is shared with a neighbouring hotel from the same chain, the El Mouradi Port el Kantaoui. Having opened in 2005, the centre has 22 treatment rooms, a seawater swimming pool, two saunas and a hammam.

        Je déconseille cet hôtel. Nous avons été en vacances en mai 2014. L'hôtel ne nous a pas plu. Si vous ne donnez pas de pourboire on ne vous donne pas de couverts ou on ne vous sert pas du tout car ils font semblant de ne pas vous voir. Les salles de bain ne sont pas propres, pas d'animation. On s'est fait volé des vêtements de marque!!! Le buffet peu varié - pas de salades. Je ne donnerai pas plus de 3 étoiles.

      Despite the fact that in other countries this 5 star hotel in Tunis would have only 4, it is still a pleasant place to spend a relaxing, feel-good holiday by the sea. It boasts many leisure facilities, including a very modern thalassotherapy centre, but the guest rooms, although comfortable, are somewhat outdated.

      If your holiday dates are flexible, avoid the El Kanta hotel during the school holidays and especially during the manic period in July and August when the whole place - just like the rest of Port El Kantaoui - is overflowing with tourists. During the mid-season period starting in March and ending in November, it is nice to take a dip in the outdoor swimming pools (there is an indoor pool for the more cautious), and the hotel is close enough to the marina for you to explore it without having to hire a car. In short, this is a good place for a simple but enjoyable holiday.

      This classical-style hotel is primarily designed for adult guests (although children are admitted). It used to be the private residence of the man who created the group to which it now belongs (El Hana), before becoming a casino. It is a place of pleasant contrasts, in particular between the (nearly overdone) luxury of certain lounge areas and the simplicity (and age) of the guest rooms. Despite the 5 stars it boasts, you shouldn't expect more than a 3 star hotel.
