To be advised for friendly vacations at a reasonable price, the Salem is as good for families as for groups of friends. For those who love to party in the evening, the city of Sousse is not far.

    Location 10.0 /10

    On the seaside, 4 miles from Sousse downtown. For the transfer from Monastir airport (located 11 miles away), allow for a 20 minute ride.

    Accommodation 6.20 /10

    The Salem has 241 rooms. 150 of them have a view of the sea (from the front or the side). The others overlook the gardens. They are small but their comfort is sufficient. Unfortunately the mattresses are not good quality. Of average size, the balcony has armchairs and a plastic table. Air conditioning is installed, and there is a television. The telephone works with operator. A refrigerator can be installed on request (with supplement). The bathroom is barely large enough for a bathtub. There is no safe in the rooms, but you can rent one at the front office.

    Overview 6.45 /10

    Built 30 years ago and renovated in 2003, the Salem has a 3-story building with inserted balconies decorated with wood banisters.. The front desk, very simple, has little lounges areas leading towards the outside. Planted with an abundant Mediterranean vegetation, the gardens are shaded by eucalyptus, palm trees, and pines. You can loaf through the trails going under a brick bridge called the "Pont des Soupirs". It shapes indeed reminds of the well-known Venitian bridge. Of the 3 outdoor swimming pools, one is semi-olympic. The other two are smaller. Sunshades and deckchairs are provided but not the beach towels.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Meals are served buffet style in the main restaurant. Located in a room with an oriental style, the latter offers a friendly setting, but it is regrettable that it does not open onto a terrace. The dishes, simple, will disappoint gastronomes. Salads, French fries, omelets, fish and meat with sauce... Do not hesitate to enjoy the Tunisian specialty offered everyday. This is by far the best choice of the buffet. During the day, a snack-bar, located near the beach, allows you to have a sandwich or a salad. The hotel also has a Moorish cafe to drink mint tea or smoke chicha.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    You get to the beach by a trail bordered with eucalyptus. Straw huts (a bit tight) have been set over 984 feet along the Mediterranean Sea. The sand on the beach is fine and the water turquoise. You relax on plastic fabric deckchairs. With a supplement, you can practice pedalo or water skiing.

    To know

    The Salem forms a group with the Royal Salem. The relaxation areas are common to both buildings, which gives a greater diversity of leisure activities. Note: the 4 swimming pools (including a covered one), the fitness centre offering massages, body and face treatments and tennis courts.

      • Value for money 7.12
      • Location 1.0

      Built in the late 1960s, the Kathago el Ksar underwent a complete renovation in 2001. Far from resting on its laurels, this 4-star hotel is already focused on its next upgrades that should currently be underway. In the meantime, the Ksar can be proud of its well-maintained facilities. The guest rooms may not be a model of originality but the hotel compensates for this by offering bungalows in addition to its accommodation blocks. With a total of 449 lodgings, the hotel is far from being a small structure on the coast: avoid it if you are allergic to crowds!

      • Value for money 7.09
      • Location 8.47

      With this princely name, you will expect quality services to match. Even though you are far from the splendour of Monaco here, its Sousse version isn't too bad. A pleasant 4-star hotel, accommodations at the Monaco consist solely of suites with kitchenettes. Far from the lively club resorts to be found in the area, it offers all the services of an aparthotel. Located on the waterfront, the Monaco also has a swimming pool and a spa.

      • Location 1.0

      It may have a regal name but the Royal Jinène isn't very different from the other hotels along the coast. Opened in 2004, this traditional 4-star hotel can boast having modern facilities and everything you would expect a resort hotel to have. Those on a tight budget can opt for its 3-star neighbour and member of the same group, the Jinène. Guests staying here can use the facilities at the Royal.

      Designer atmosphere for this hotel with a "fashion" decoration and a family clientele. Large spaces, bright colours, a huge swimming pool, entertainment for everyone, a hotel that we recommend to families.

      • Value for money 6.99
      • Location 4.6

      Opened in 1969, the Marabout was one of the first hotels to be built in the small city of Sousse. Renovated and expanded, it now has a hundred guest rooms with a contemporary look. The other guests will just have to be content with the somewhat outdated standard rooms. However, everyone can take advantage of the leisure facilities, such as the swimming pool with its waterslides. Sure to be appreciated by the whole family!

      • Location 7.0

      Don't be fooled by this 4-star establishment's promising name. Opened in 1967, the hotel is far from being a palace! The only thing different about the Sousse Palace compared to the rest of the hotels at this seaside resort is its old-fashioned look. However, the hotel is scheduled to be closed for one year in 2012 in order to renovate its buildings from top to bottom. Check back in 2013 for the results!

      • Location 7.0

      We can't even count the number of Marhaba hotels there are in the city of Sousse! The Marhaba Beach itself shares a large complex with three others. Although they all operate independently, you should still avoid coming here if you're looking for a private setting! However, this can also be an asset, especially when it comes to the shared facilities. The Marhaba Beach may differ slightly from the others in terms of the communal areas, but its positive aspects include tasteful and modern new guest rooms as well as a location on the beautiful beach of Sousse.

      We can't even count the number of Marhaba hotels there are in the city of Sousse! Although it is difficult to stand out as a holiday resort in this city, the Royal Salem does have some notable extras. In addition to its modern rooms and large swimming pool with a waterslide, the hotel benefits from a splendid location right beside the beach.
