Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Located next to the beach, the hotel is located about 2 mi from the centre of Port El Kantaoui and 8.5 mi from the city centre of Sousse. It is situated in a street parallel to one of Port El Kantanoui's main roads, where the traffic passes in both directions. There is also a pedestrian street close by, where you will find numerous shops and restaurants. In a tourist area home to many hotels, the shopping zone and a bus stop are located 200m from the hotel. The closest airport is in Monastir, 14 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    The 270 guest rooms at the hotel consist mainly of standard double rooms. Family rooms (with 2 bathrooms) and junior suites (with a lounge area) are also available. The double rooms are spacious, fitted with carpet (which is clean enough), and boast pleasant decor. The furnishings are functional and they include all the things you could need to make your stay a comfortable one: a hair dryer, satellite television (with 20 or so channels), a telephone, air conditioning, heating, a safe (free), and a mini fridge, where you will find 3 bottles of mineral water upon your arrival. Simply ask at reception for it to be stocked with other drinks. The bathrooms are both practical and elegant, and the toilets are separate.

    Overview 7.75 /10

    This elegant hotel was built in 1994 and has undergone several (some of them complete) renovations since then. The most recent one was carried out between 2007 and 2008 and concentrated on the furnishings in the lounges and upper floors. This is a noteworthy renovation, as now the lounges are spacious and bright, and furnished with very modern and comfortable fabric sofas, making them the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee or just to spend a few minutes passing the time. The other communal areas, such as the swimming pool, the restaurants, and the bars, are equally comfortable and modern. Both the structure and the decor correspond to a modern Moresque style. There is a total of 3 swimming pools: one is covered and two are outdoor pools (one for adults and the other for children). You will also find a tennis court, a ping pong table, and a gym.

    Food and drink 7.75 /10

    The welcomingly bright and spacious restaurant allows you to enjoy your meal in a pleasant setting (even in high season). The meals are another plus point here: they are of good quality and a themed dinner is organised every evening. Thanks to this, meal times do not become repetitive. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are made up of various meats, fish, soups, vegetables, and salads, as well as a large selection of deserts, seasonings, sauces, bread, various teas, etc. The restaurant is entirely non-smoking. For all 3 meals, you will have the opportunity to choose dishes prepared on the spot by the chefs (pancakes for breakfast, grilled fish for lunch, grilled meat for dinner, etc.). Local drinks (cold drinks, water, and local alcohol) are included in this menu but they could be of a better quality. In summer, you will have additional dining options as other restaurants in the hotel open for the season: a restaurant at the pool, another one at the beach, and an Italian one. You can choose between buffet style and la carte meals. Several bars are available for you to have a drink or a coffee in a pleasant atmosphere.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    The beach is situated right next to the Riu Imperial Marhaba and can be accessed from the hotel directly. The hammocks and parasols are available for free for hotel guests to use, and the beach bar, open in summer, serves drinks and sandwiches. However, these refreshments are not included in the price of your stay, even for guests who have opted for the full board formula. There are showers available for guests on this private beach and there is also a water sports club nearby offering a large choice of water activities.

    To know

    You will be served a welcome cocktail or fruit juice just before you check in, which is rather nice after a long trip. In high season, only the full board formula is available. For that matter, it is entirely possible that it is the only formula available all year round. The hotel has plans to open a modern spa centre, consisting of professionals who will offer all types of treatments and facilities that will give guests the opportunity to enjoy the water without having to leave the complex. The kids club is open from 10:00am till noon and from 3:00pm till 5:00pm. In addition, there is a mini-disco for children, open for an hour at 8:00pm.

      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.

      Standing on the second line of hotels along the seafront, the Tej Marhaba is a huge complex that holds 350 guest rooms and doesn't quite correspond to a European 4 star hotel (even though it is rated as such!). 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.

      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.

      • 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.
