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 lunches. 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 the à la carte will still specialise in French fare. There are also loads of places to eat down at the marina – it’s a 30-minute stroll along the sand.

OK, if you like school dinners
We stayed at this hotel in October 2013. I delayed the poor review because I was hoping Thompson might recompense us for a very disappointing holiday experience. Our main complain was the very poor standard of food in the restaurants. This was made worse by being forced to sit at the same table each visit at set times. I am not a particularly fussy eater and can happily eat at cheap restaurants such as MacDonalds but the stuff served by the Hotel Royal Kenz was dreadful. Other complaints were: lack of cutlery, dirty table cloths, dirty cutlery, lack of labels on the self-service dishes so that you would not know for sure what you were getting. Additionally, the waiters only waited when they were given frequent tips; otherwise, you could order coffee and they would disappear for good. The beaches and gardens were packed to the gunnels and often it was hard to get hold of a sun-lounger.More

We went to this hotel in Jan 2013 and gave a good review. We enjoyed it so much we went back for 2 weeks in December 2013 Never Again. It had gone downhill dramatically We paid Thomson an extra £112 for 2 wks in a superior room, the room was exactly the same as the standard one we had in January other than we had a kettle and a bathrobe each!! It would have been cheaper to upgrade the luggage and take them with us.; We moved rooms as we had no sun on our balcony then the buillders started. The hotel was closing in Jan for refurb but they decided to start early and we were wakened at 7.30am by the builders throwing their tools onto the roof of our room. The food was not very warm and little choice, staff couldn't be bothered Medheme one of the receptionists was a pain in the proverbial he wouldn't do anything all he said was come back later! he was more interested in playing games on the computer or mobile phone. Because of him we didn't have a safe for foru days as he kept telling us to go back at a different time The final straw with him was the day we left, we wanted to keep our room on and spoke to one of the other reception staff who said it was not a problem the room was free but couldn't book till morning when we went the next morning Medheme told us we had to be out of room by 11 and it was booked, this was not true we had it till 12 noon. He then told us to go back in an hour and we could have a different room as this meant we would have to pack and move we told him to forget it. There was no entertainment. Never againMore

This hotel is for adults and children!
I have booked this holiday through First Choice for myself, husband and two children summer 2014. I was horrified to read that some people think this is an 'adults only' hotel and that children were thought of as a nuisance. I checked with First Choice, and they confirmed that although most people who book this hotel are adults, it is definitely NOT exclusively for adults and children are very welcome. Apparently is was adults only years ago but not any more. Therefore if you are thinking of booking this hotel for your children, go ahead and do not listen to any previous negative ageist comments.More

Stayed here with my best friend from the 15th to the 22nd of December and had a fantastic time. We travelled with Thomson. Flight: not delayed, all on time. When you fill in the visa card it would be helpful to have slightly more of an explanation, especially if its your first time. Going through customs at Enfidha airport took a very long time but once we were through, luggage collection was easy as I don't think there are many flights in the winter months. Then the transfer to the hotel was only 30 minutes and our holiday rep kept us entertained. Hotel: once we had checked in, we took our bags upstairs and our room was lovely! Large twin beds with lots of storage space and a lovely little balcony with chairs and a table. There was hot water 24/7 and the only problem we had was that our room lights didn't work when we were getting up at 5am for an excursion. Excursions: We did camel riding with Joseph from the hotel which was great. Saw round all the vineyards and stopped off at a little cafe where the locals showed us how to make bread in a log fire. Then we went on Simply Sahara which is just incredible and so good for the price you pay. If you don't mind sitting on a coach for miles at a time then its a dream. Two days travelling all over Tunisia including a trip to El Jem amphitheatre, camel riding in the desert at sunset, dune riding in 4x4's and a trip to see the Star Wars set. Overall 10/10! On our second to last day we took horses out onto the beach but clumsy ol' me fell off which took a trip to the local hospital (cheap and my insurance covered me). Food: overall didn't have a problem and the drinks are mostly good. We loved the snack bar where the toasted paninis were lovely! Obviously do tip maybe 3 dinar a meal but its only £1.20 so its not breaking the bank. If you're missing English food, there's a shop on site that sells Lays (Walkers) crisps and chocolate too. Can't wait to go back on March 12th!More
relaxing adult only hotel, good food, excellent spa, friendly helpful staff
Been here twice now and looking forward to our next visit and seeing the upgrades which are currently in progress. Food plentiful choice, buffet style meals as much as you can eat. Drinks OK, green tea with mint was lovely. Bar at beach serves drinks and snacks. Plenty of sun loungers, beach towels available for refundable deposit. Entertainment variable, some good nights some not so good. The last time we were there the entertainment team were very childish and did not do their job, too busy flirting.More
