Amy Adejokun Section editor

Another so-called Tunisian "palace"! The reality, however, is that the Marhaba Palace is only a 4-star establishment. The only thing that sets the Marhaba Palace apart is its light entertainment and its ambiance, which is a little more refined than at a club resort. No showing off your muscles or drinking games here: instead you might find just a pianist or an orchestra in the evening. This hotel is best-suited for couples even if the size of the hotel might scare them off?

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Marhaba Palace is located at the heart of the Port El Kantaoui resort, directly on a sandy beach, a few minutes walk from the marina and the golf course. It takes a good half an hour to reach from the Monastir airport.

    Accommodation 6.75 /10

    Not only does the Marhaba Palace have 333 guest rooms, it also has 26 junior suites and a presidential suite. Apart from their size, the standard rooms have nothing to envy the superior categories. Indeed, and whether it's to your liking or not, the decor has been well thought out. Although we weren't too impressed with the fitted carpeting and luggage rack, we did like the bedspread, the headboard and the plasma-screen television. As for the amenities, there is nothing palace-like about them: an empty refrigerator, a safe at reception (for an additional fee), no Internet connection, etc. Renovated in 2011, there is also nothing special about the bathrooms. Traditional but functional, they have a bathtub, a large mirror, a shower gel dispenser and a separate WC.

    Overview 7.25 /10

    With 7 storeys and 333 guest rooms, the hotel is far from being a charming little establishment. The architecture in its imposing lobby is typical of Tunisian hotels: marble, wooden columns, a huge reception counter, a fountain, etc. Only the furniture stands out from the usual old-fashioned sofas and armchairs. Indeed, the entrance hall has some pretty, and rather modern, rattan furniture. In terms of relaxation facilities, the Marhaba Palace is aimed at adults: a large outdoor swimming pool, two indoor swimming pools, a nightclub, a small spa with 5 rooms, a hammam and a sauna. Plus, in addition to a gym, the spa also has a squash court! Since the hotel doesn't have a children's club, your little ones will have to make do with the mini playground.

    Food and drink 7.25 /10

    So as not to forget that this hotel is not a club resort, there are no additional options beyond the full-board formula, meaning that there is no such thing as all-inclusive here. However, like most of the establishments on the Tunisian coast, the Marhaba Palace has a main restaurant (proposing an international buffet as well as Tunisian and Italian theme nights), a fish restaurant on the beach, an international la carte restaurant and a snack bar by the swimming pool. And let's not forget the four different bars. Although they are all mostly traditional in style, the beach bar stands out slightly thanks to its pretty wrought iron green furniture. Probably our favourite place for quenching our thirst!

    Beach 7.00 /10

    The Marhaba Beach can be proud of its location right next to the water, since many of its competitors have had to settle for being one row back, on the other side of a busy street. You just have to cross the park to be able to dig your toes in the fine sand on the beach. Equipped with everything you need to sit back and relax (plastic deckchairs, mattresses and parasols), as well as a bar, it is possible to do plenty of activities here for an extra charge. Other than the water sports, you might want to go on a 4x4 excursion or camel-back ride!

    To know

    In addition to the Wi-Fi connection available in the reception area and a handful of the guest rooms, there are three computers available for guests. There is a charge to use them, though: about 2 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.

      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.

      • Location 10.0

      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).

      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.
