Centrally located, landmark base beside the attractive marina for which the resort is famous. Friendly and welcoming atmosphere prevails in this traditional Tunisian offering, once sought after by adventurous Europeans.
Internal decor overflows with local architecture and tiling, with sweeping arches, ornate pillars and marble clad floors. Some of the furnishings appear rather faded and the dining room and bar look somewhat functional.
Attracts a wide range of European families and couples with some British clients. An increasing number of Tunisian families are frequenting the area, especially at weekends and during local bank holidays.
In the very centre of Port El Kantaoui, adjacent to the marina area with a generous array of shops, restaurants and snack outlets. Golf course 400m away at the opposite side of the main coast road. Taxis usually wait outside the gate and horse drawn carriages and a mini train operate along the main road.
150m walk to a long stretch of sandy beach with a private area, maintained by the property. Sunloungers and parasols available with limited organised activities during the summer season.
Well landscaped outdoor pool and separate children’s splash pool is the focus of the garden at the rear of the main building, although they may be closed outside the peak summer season. Indoor pool is heated in winter and is popular throughout the day.
Leisure & Entertainment
