Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Golf Residence is a modest hotel with basic rooms, and its rating as a 3 star establishment would probably translate to 2 stars in Europe. It could be cleaner, even if, given the room rates, you might expect to find something more humble. Contrary to what its name suggests, the hotel is not located on a golf course, but the 36-hole Port El Kantaoui golf course is nearby (about 150m away).

    Location 10.0 /10

    The Golf Residence is found in a very lively neighbourhood, just over 500m from the beach. It is located between the Port El Kantaoui tourist complex (about 300m away) and the city of Sousse (4.5 mi) on one of the busy main roads connecting the two towns. Within walking distance of the hotel are several restaurants and bars, as well as shops selling food, clothing and Tunisian handicraft. Golf lovers will be pleased to learn that the Port El Kantaoui golf course is only a few hundred feet away. The closest airport is at Monastir, some 16 mi away.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    All in all, the hotel can accommodate 490 guests, as it has more than 220 double rooms and about 10 suites. In addition to the bedroom, the suites have a small lounge area furnished with sofas. A good number of the rooms have recently been tastefully renovated with a combination of natural wood headboards and brightly coloured curtains and carpets, although the rest of the decor and furniture is rather old fashioned. The facilities include a telephone, satellite television and a mini fridge. There is a charge for use of the safe at the reception, but it is monitored 24 hours a day.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The hotel was almost completely renovated in 1999. It consists of a main building with a white facade and another 3 storey building on the corner of a street that gets rather busy with traffic, especially during the high season. The rooms are spacious but do not look very modern, with their rugs and old tapestries that really should be removed. The facilities in the complex include a night club and tennis and volleyball courts.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel has several places for you to enjoy your meals. The main restaurant serves up meals in the form of a buffet, and the quality of the dishes, a mixture of international cuisine and Tunisian specialities, could be better. There is also a snack bar on the beach, a pizzeria and another cafe-style restaurant next to the swimming pool.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The hotel has a good quality private beach for the enjoyment of its guests. Indeed, the water and sand are quite decent and the beach is kept clean just about all year round. Hammocks, showers and parasols are available for guests staying at the Golf Residence.

    To know

    A horse-drawn carriage takes guests down to beach from the hotel for free. Remember to check the timetable! The communal areas, which consist of the hall and the ground floor lounges, are not very bright. Wifi access is free in the hall, but internet access at the internet cafe costs approximately 1.5 pounds per hour.

      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.

      • Location 10.0

      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.

      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.

It provides a comprehensive set of facilities that allow its guests to spend a few days resting and relaxing in a good value for money hotel.

      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.

      This hotel is modern and elegant, and offers quality cuisine. It stands 100m away from the sea, in the tourist area of Port El Kantaoui, in a street that is fairly busy with traffic. This holiday hotel seems more like a city hotel because of its location and amenities. It is fully deserving of its 4 star rating, and not just by Tunisian standards.
