Amy Adejokun Section editor

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facilities, including a very modern thalassotherapy centre, but the guest rooms, although comfortable, are somewhat outdated.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the seafront in the tourist area of Port El Kantaoui, which abounds with hotels, shops, restaurants and leisure activities. It is just over 1 mi away from the centre of Port El Kantaoui and the Kantaoui Golf Club, the nearest golf course, whilst the centre of Sousse is only 7,5 mi away. Other nearby towns and cities of interest to tourists include Monastir (25 mi), Mahdia (43,5 mi) and Kairouan (also 43,5 mi away). The closest airports are Monastir, 22 mi away, and Tunis, 90 mi away. The hotel also boasts direct access to its own private beach.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The El Mouradi Palm Marina was built in 1995 and has been renovated on various occasions since, the latest being a total renovation in 2000. The main, white building has 3 floors, each of which is served by 6 lifts. You'll undoubtedly notice a contrast within the hotel in terms of the condition and the appearance of the various rooms, as whilst some are rather modern, one might even say majestic (such as the entrance, for example, with its shiny marble floor, and the outdoor pool area), others appear old and outdated, as is the case with the guest rooms. The entrance hall is Arabian in style, easily recognisable thanks to the geometrical decorative detail in the shiny marble floors and ceilings, and is furnished with various antique-looking tapestry sofas where guests can relax. The hotel's gardens are very well maintained and release a pleasant aroma of jasmine and roses, whilst the most modern part of the hotel is undoubtedly the thalassotherapy centre. Opened in 2007, it has 30 treatment rooms where you can enjoy all types of massages imaginable, from the traditional to shiatsu, as well as a seawater swimming pool, two saunas, a hammam and a gym.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The hotel has 390 clean and comfortable guest rooms and can accommodate up to 790 guests, although it has to be said that the decor is not what you would expect of a 5 star hotel. All of the floors (with the exception of those in the bathrooms) and the corridors leading to the rooms are carpeted. Orange is certainly the colour of choice where decor is concerned and is featured in the carpets, the curtains, the duvets and even the tapestry work on the small sofas. The bathrooms, on the other hand, are decorated in shades of green, with tiling featuring blue and green geometrical figures against a white background that could easily get on your nerves. Amenities include air conditioning, a balcony, satellite television, a phone, a hair dryer, a safe and a mini refrigerator (which can be stocked on request), among other things. The hotel's rooms are a combination of doubles, with a floor area of 25-30m², Junior Suites (of which there are a total of 32) and the new Senior Suites. There are also two 50m² apartments available. The suites have a small lounge area furnished with sofas and three phones (in the bedroom, the lounge and the bathroom).

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The lunch served in the main buffet restaurant, the Maritime, is decent enough, but not exactly what you would expect of a 5 star hotel. If you're visiting out of season you'll find you still have several options when it comes to lunch and dinner, with a variety of meat, fish, pasta, vegetable and salad dishes on offer, though no more than three types of each. Dinner consists of a selection of lightly grilled meat and fish dishes, as well as pasta served in a sauce prepared to suit your own personal tastes. Likewise, the eggs served at breakfast are also freshly prepared sunny side up. You also have a choice of 2 other restaurants, an Italian one and one on the beach. This restaurant is very well lit thanks to the large picture window surrounding it that overlooks the swimming pool and the sea in the background. There are also various bars you can visit, including the Arabian cafe (the best and most authentic), the pool bar, the piano bar and the bar at the disco.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The Mouradi Palm Marina is located on the seafront, providing easy and direct access to the hotel's private beach. A lifeguard is on duty here from 7:00am to 6:00pm, but the beach is generally quiet and rather clean. Loungers, parasols and air mattresses are provided free of charge for guests, and whilst the hotel also provides beach towels, there is a 10 dinar (4,5 pounds) deposit required at the reception in order to use them.

    To know

    Pirogue canoes and pedalos are provided free of charge for guests to use. One of the outdoor pools has some very wide steps where it's nice to relax in the water and top up your tan at the same time. It's worth treating yourself to one of the very comprehensive list of treatments on offer at the hotel's new thalassotherapy centre. By way of example, a back massage will set you back around 22 pounds, a session in the sauna 7 pounds, a session on the water circuit 18 pounds, and a hot stone massage 47 pounds.

      This modern hotel has comfortable guest rooms, very functional lounges, and a large choice of leisure and sports activities to offer. Even though this is a 5 star hotel, it could easily be confused with a 4 star establishment. Nevertheless, it is a decent establishment when taking into account its geographic location, next to a Tunisian beach.

      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.
