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.

Great hotel

Had a great weeks break in the Royal Kenz Hotel. The hotel is spotless , the rooms are comfy and the staff are so polite and friendly. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too good during our visit , but that's the chance you take this time of year. The evening entertainment wasn't great but some of the acts were good! Overall we had a relaxing time in Tunisia and met some nice people. Cheers!More

A very pleasant stay.

Had a week at the Royal Kenz, being the time of year it was quite which suited us,the hotel was very clean & the grounds very tidy, we did manage to sit outside a couple of days when it was slightly warmer. The food is very varied & good, some thing for every one, we did have dinner in the Italian & Indian Restaurants, they were also good, I did prefer the Indian. All the staff at the hotel were very helpful.More

Fantastic Break at the Royal Kenz

This was a late booking to celebrate my 50th birthday. From start to finish this was the most relaxing holiday I have ever enjoyed, made all the better with all the staff in the hotel with nothing any trouble. We were fortunate the hotel was quite quiet enjoyed being pampered in the spa took advantage of 2 packages certainly well worth the money. Made special for my birthday in the Italian alacarte restuarant with a cake and everyone singing happy birthday, we also enjoyed a similar experience with a lovely couple we met who were celebrating their 30th Wedding anniversary. The entertainment was entertaining with the team especially Rico providing some funny antics throughout the week but again all the team were very friendly. Bar staff at night very helpful with Rafik always obliging and wanting to help. The best was saved for the end as we enjoyed an emotional goodbye with good friends we met and staff lining up and dancing to the Maria Luma dance. As I said in the heading a Fantastic break at a fantastic Resort. Will definitely return.More

Great holiday

Loved our time at the royal kenz.... hotel was so clean and smelt was great always something to eat they try really hard to make each night different with the themes in the main buffet..had 2 a la carte meals the Indian and the Italian both can get quite busy so good to order double drinks and save yourself a trip back.... pools lovely but as it was November very cold.... sad we didn't get to go in them... but the spa more than made up for it.... we spent an hour every late afternoon enjoying the indoor pool and jaccuzzi...also played tennis which was fun. Beach lovely and went in the sea a couple of times......walked to the port along the beach and back and also along the main road.... the locals will try and get you into their shops and restaurants in the town but your best to just smile and carry on walking if your not interested they soon get the message.... sure they would do better business if they just left tourists alone and let us look and wander but I guess you have to love a tryer?!? The port is a very picturesque place. Back to the hotel found the hotel staff to be extremely helpful in reception and restaurants.... Rafiqu you were the loveliest waiter.... a few words in french or arabic seemed to make a lot of the staff smile...... now ms Thompson rep!!!!! Never have I met such a 'has been' of a holiday rep maybe its time for reirement Christine..... the most unhelpful sour faced Holiday rep i have ever had the displeasure to meet... only asked her one night if she could recommend anywhere in town to go.... her response was "im not meant to be working.. im here because of an emergency.... n town at this time?" It was only 8pm at night.... she was extremely unprofessional and unhelpful.... another day I asked her a question only to receive a sarcastic answer...... the only time I saw her happy was the night one of the hotel bar singers was playing with his band she took a guests seat and sat giggling and gawping at the singer....yes Christine we watched you.....again not the representation of a professional holiday rep..... Would love to return to royal kenz one day when you get a helpful holiday rep : p everything was lovely apart from you! More

Sara S,

Loved it.

This was mine and my boyfriends first holiday away together and I can say we both enjoyed it very much. We had a day at the spa when we hired the private room which had a hot tub, sauna etc and it was so relaxing! Every night we had a different theme down at the restaurant from an Indian night, black and white, Far East and many more which all the food which was there was lovely, so much choice. We occasionally went and got a panini from the snack bar to keep us going through the day! The coke in the lobby was watered down which was a let down but in the restaurant it was prober coke out off a bottle. We found tipping the waiters have you a bit off a better service but we didn't mind because the exchange rate basically tripled your English money. Our room was spotless and was always cleaned unless we said we didn't want it to be cleaned. We paid for a premium room which included a bowl of fruit, dressing gowns, slippers and tea and coffee facilities for an extra £50 we paid. We loved our room everything was how we wanted it to be. We also had fresh clean towels daily. We went down to the beach which was nice a relaxing as there wasn't many people down there but on the way back up a man tried to scam us with the money trick, they would basically drop a pound coin and pick it up and say to you what is this? Then they will ask you to exchange this for Tunisian money and then they will try and rob you, but with a firm consistent no they backed of. Luckily we got warned about this before hand in our welcome meeting. That's the only trouble we had so just becarful. We did a few off the excursions. We did the friguia park which is the animal park. You could get so close to the animals. They had stands where you could go feed a giraffe and have a picture with a sea lion which I think is about 10dt. We had an amazing experience of holiday a baby lion. We also went on the 4x4 which I must say, wasn't worth what we paid, truly disappointed by but that's my personal opinion. You basically go around Tunisian mountains look at djerba towns which only a few people live in and religious towns and go to a farm at the end and have a meal. It wasn't for me. We did the camel caravan which we booked through yoesph instead of thomson, you get picked up in horse and cart and have about 10 mins riding a camel, you get pictures taken off you riding and with the camel and also feeding the camel. The pictures were available to buy at the end for 24dt which is basically £10. We also got to see Tunisian ladies making bread which I got to have ago at doing. We also got to see a camel drinking a glass bottle of coke which was funny. Our last excursion was the quad bikes, you have to walk to the stand by yourself but the excursion is worth it. We had about 1hour and a half on a quad and went around the towns off Tunisia, was a great way to see Tunisia and how different they lived. The only one thing that let our holiday down was the Thomson rep, she didn't seem to care about us for some reason, on our first holiday away together we felt as if we needed her Incase of a trouble but we never went to her because the way she made us feel, we ha more help off reception and our room service guy than her. She given us the wrong date for one off our excursions which I said to her about thinking it was a Friday and she looked and come out the sarcastic comment 'that's good for you.'. So the Friday off the excursion we went down to the lobby and waited for our bus at 7.30am. One bus come and it was our excursion bus. It got to about 7.50am and we asked reception, not only did she nearly give us the wrong date she have us the wrong time... It maybe hard for her to Remember all the times etc but we felt like it wasn't good customer service. A lot off people staying at the hotel were saying about how she was etc. No one was impressed from what we heard. Overall we had a lovely stay at the royal Kenz and will hopefully vist again in the future. More
