Hotel Royal Kenz

This hotel ticks all the boxes with a pair of outdoor pools, 4 restaurants, and a private sandy beach.

This hotel – newly revamped in 2014 –has a handy location. It’s less than 10 minutes’ walk from a private strip of sand and a short taxi ride away from the marina. And Sousse’s medina is do-able with a 20-minute drive.

There are 3 pools – 2 outdoors and 1 indoors at the spa – as well as pretty lawns for sunbathing. Food-wise, along with a buffet restaurant, there are Indian and Italian à la cartes, and a steakhouse.

Beautiful Royal Kenz

A hotel like this in Europe would be at least double the price! The recent refurbishment is beautiful and tastefully done. All the building and the grounds of the hotel are delightful. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. We had a room on the third floor facing the entrance which was nice and quiet. Housekeeping were very thorough and the 'water man' delivered lots of bottled water to our room every day. The restaurant and food served was excellent and tasty with a wide variety of options all the time. The waiters were very attentive and sweet, such as Nabil and Basem! Although all inclusive we always left a few dinars which they really appreciated! All the other staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, they went out their way to help you. The entertainment staff were great, full of energy and fun! Rico was particularly lovely and Sonia! And finally we have to mention the incredible Rafik who ran the Moorish Cafe in the hotel (for shish pipes) - what an gentleman! We got to know him well over the course of our holiday and he even showed us how he prepares the shish pipes! Pool area fabulous and they give you beach towels with 3 changes permitted per week, a nice touch! The beach is beautiful, a 5 minute walk from the hotel where there is a beach bar and they serve paninis. Children seemed not to be present which made it an ideal place for couples, we later read it was an adult only hotel. We were sadly on the beach at the time of the attack in June but we stayed on in the hotel and we are very glad we did. There was a lot of extra security in the area so we felt safe. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable. We are very grateful for that and will definitely return one day! Thank you Royal Kenz! :)More

Lovely holiday ruined by atrocity

We arrived on the morning of the 21st June. I was a bit unsure as I wondered if I should have gone for a smaller hotel. After the first two days the hotel grew on me. We had room 500 which was enormous and beautifully furnished. View was restricted due to the roof of the indoor pool but hey we didn't spend much time in the room. The restaurant did theme nights and staff were very attentive. I do wish there had been more Tunisian based dishes but the food wasn't too bad. Staff were great but personally found the animation team a bit irritating at times but not overly...They don't try and pressurise you like some. Pools and beach are lovely...booze was ok and never really queued as others have said. Felt safe enough to go for a run each morning. But then it all changed on the 26th. We had been chilling but had to run with everyone else. The sound of automatic gunfire is still in my head. And I feel so sorry for those people who died, their families and those who got injured. They were there for the same reasons as us...A lovely holiday in a beautiful setting. Thompson did eventually come good by getting us home which must have been a logistical nightmare. I amongst others wasn't happy that there was no update until situations like this people are traumatised and rumours start circulating. I feel sorry for Tunisia and all the staff who have probably lost their livelihoods which is exactly what the terrorists wanted. I hope this country can recover from this as they are such lovely people. We chose to leave as we didn't feel safe and wouldn't have been able to enjoy the rest of our holiday knowing fellow holiday makers had died in such a way. I don't think we would return until the risk posed by these extremists is quelled. In fact I wouldn't return to any Arabic country for the same reasons. More

Honeymoon at the Kenz

My wife and I arrived on the 21st June to start our honeymoon, as it was late check-in was smooth and easy, we were shown to our room 510 and very pleasantly surprised it was spacious and spotless. We dropped our bags off as there were snacks waiting for us in the restaurant. In the morning we did our usual find where everything is tour, as it happens all amenities were close by and very good. The staff were always smiling and saying hello. In the restaurant we were looked after by Imed and Muhammed they were fantastic couldn't do enough for us. Obviously whilst we were there the terrible tragedy happened, we were on a day trip at the time but all we heard when we were allowed back into the hotel is so much high praise for the hotel management and staff for making sure customers were safe.. All in all it is a fantastic hotel we would highly recommend it to anyone. I hope the tragedy does not affect the country to much as the people are brilliant.. More

May Holiday 2015

Where do I begin after the tragedy that happened in Tunisia.Firstly this was my first trip to Tunisia and I was not disappointed everything about the hotel was superb and I met some of the nicest people ever who couldn't do enough for you. Rooms spotless and cleaned regular, food was varied and plentiful, pools clean, plenty of sunbeds no need to get up early, entertainment every night and the staff worked so hard but always had a smile on their face. If your looking for a chilled out holiday this hotel is excellent. Its just a shame recent events could effect tourism in a lovely country, I hope not as I for one would love to go back. Thanks for a great time and good luck for the future.More
