Hotel Royal Kenz


The Royal Kenz is all about the pools. You’ve got three to pick from – two in the tree-lined gardens, with plenty of sunloungers and a bar, plus a third indoors. The hotel also has its own stretch of white-sand beach just a couple of minutes’ walk away, complete with a thatched bar that serves up drinks and snacks. Rooms are getting a revamp for summer 2014, so they'll come with a new splash of colour and flatscreen TVs. The buffet restaurant is getting a makeover, too, which will give it a swish new al fresco dining area. The menu, meanwhile, will still feature everything from pasta to couscous dishes. And there are à la cartes specialising in Indian and Italian fare. There are also loads of places to eat down at the marina – it’s a 30-minute stroll along the sand.

Excellent all-round experience

This was our second stay at the Royal Kenz and again we weren't disappointed. The staff were very helpful, the food was excellent and the pool area and other amenities were very clean and tidy throughout. The beach area was very clean and the overall experience of the hotel was first class. Sadly, the only thing that put a dampener on the holiday was the attitude and behaviour of a very small minority of the visitors but there is no way the hotel can be blamed for this - some people just can't help themselves. But this didn't detract too much from what was a great overall experience and I would recommend the hotel to anyone thinking of a relaxing break.More

Excellent stay

Had one week at this beautiful hotel 30 March - 6 April. Lovely decor and spacious rooms, all very clean. Food very good although as I don't eat meat more fish options would have been appreciated and more Tunisian food. Glorious beach and the sea was plenty warm enough to swim in comfortably. The biggest spa I have ever seen and the best indoor hotel pool ever. Staff invariably lovely. A few minor niggles: gym doesn't open till 0900 and breakfast finishes at 1000 so not much time to workout and eat! Need more weights. Also should pay per day not per session.For these reasons I didn't use the gym. The Indian a la carte restaurant is the really weak link at this hotel. After that experience we didn't try the Italian restaurant. Heard that the Italian food was all available at the buffet anyhow! Why not close both and have a Tunisian restaurant? I didn't even manage a couscous as there were only meat options! That said we had a fabulous stay. Didn't do any organised tours but took taxi to El Djem, and train to Monastir (highly recommended) plus walked into Port el Kantaoui. All in all a great holiday with better than expected weather.More

Relaxing Holiday

Just returned from Royal Kenz on the 13 April. A lovely hotel, very clean, loads of staff mostly very helpful, rooms cleaned every day. Brilliant food, lots of choice, always hot and loads of puddings that were always brilliant. The staff could not do enough for you. A good idea to tip they are very appreciative. Always roses on the tables and in the lobby, a nice touch. Overall a relaxing holiday (apart from the children). A few niggles - far too many children, I think they have made a huge mistake letting children in. I had upgraded to a superior room, if you are thinking of this don't- a waste of money, when we arrived there were two beds in the room and 3 of us. When I went to reception they said they would bring another bed which I refused, it would have meant climbing over the others to get into it!. I always thought superior meant a bigger, better room, obviously they don't. When I complained we were moved to a mini suite which is a lot more suitable for 3 people. Because we had upgraded we should have got tea, coffee, water every day - we didn't, I had to ask on 3 separate occasions for this, (the receptionist was not bothered just sent me to the bar to ask). Also a very noisy hotel, especially after midnight, not sure why but some people have no regard for other guests. Woken several nights at 2 and 3 in the morning with people returning to their rooms, slamming their doors and deciding to have conversations outside our room. The lobby is a nice area although it does not have enough seating for everyone, you had to wander about for ages to look for somewhere to sit. The entertainment team were only interested in their favourite people and didn't really provide much entertainment other than to see what young girls they could chat up. Would I return? To this hotel no, to Tunisia yes.More

My sister and I needed a break, and the Royal Kenz was the perfect place to do this! We stayed from the 6th April to the 13th April. From the moment we arrived we were treated absolutely brilliantly by the staff, offering us a cocktail as we entered the hotel. The entire staff were a highlight for us, they couldn't do enough for you and they were so friendly and lovely. We made some great friends within the staff, especially from the Entertainment team, who were amazing throughout the week. Mario, Nemo, Phillippe and Willy (the entertainment team) were absolutely fantastic and definitely kept us entertained. We both had a Californian Massage in the spa, it was absolutely amazing! So relaxing! The hotel was very clean throughout, the food was amazing, with a wide range of choice and to see some people complaining about there been too many kids is ridiculous, I hardly noticed too many kids and even when I did they were not causing anybody any problems! I will definitely be returning in the summer to The Royal Kenz!More
