I have stayed in some of the worlds best and worst hotels and one rule still applies - you get what you pay for. If you pay a modest outlay for a holiday then you can normally expect a modestly priced hotel in return and that is where this hotel sits. It is not perfect, of course not, which hotels are, but if you manage your expectation you can enjoy all what PE Kantoui has to offer in a good hotel for a very modest outlay. Most guests are middle aged and are either German, French or Russian. Brits are very fimly in the minority here - so if you like to be amongst british guests think again about coming here. Bedrooms are quite spacious are carpeted and come with a bathroom which is well appointed with a fully functional shower with excellent water pressure, bath, toilet and a built in sink with plenty of storage space. tHE BEACH ..is simply gorgeous. White, fine sand and a lovely warm sea. dINING AND FOOD The first point is as this is All Inclusive you cannot and should not expect Al la carte food. The food is aimed at mass catering but still maintaining quality and I think as a general foodie they achieved that. if you want sun, sea and sand in a good hotel on the beach for a reasonable cost you cannot go wrong here. If you want European style sophistication then don't come to Tunisia. This hotel, may not be a 5 star luxury but is is a well managed hotel and the staff are very keen to ensure you have a good time and will be very accomodating for you.
This hotel hasn't had many good reviews so we were quite surprised to find a grand hotel, good service, very good breakfast and reasonable buffet dinner (considering the price). The staff were more than helpful. The facilities may not all have been 5 star according to western standards but all the charges were also well below 5 star standards so I don't know what other people were expecting.

Modern whitewashed hotel built in traditional Tunisian style, set just 200 metres from the beautiful Port El Kantaoui Marina …More
I was aware that Port El Kantaoui was a purpose built resort catering mostly for package holiday clients. However, I was totally surprised at how tranquil this hotel was, set apart from the main road and with its extensive gardens facing the sea. Accordingly, the rooms were extremely quiet and peaceful, attracting no noise whatsoever. The guests were reserved and very civil, as were the staff. An thoroughly excellent place to stay in a convenient location to be able to enjoy both the seclusion of the hotel itself and to visit nearby towns and attractions.
The HASDRUBAL Port El Kantaoui is an intimate hotel, warm, where everything reflects calm, order, and beauty. The …More
"Good facilities, but poor service and needs refurbishing"
The hotel is certainly not five star by UK standards. The rooms are in need of rennovation, but are reasonably sized. I would describe the rooms as three star (by UK standards). The general decor of the hotel is tired. The leisure facilities at the hotel were very good. The outdoor pool was large (if a little cold in April) and the indoor pool was well maintained and warm (31C in April). The tennis courts looked good. What really lets this hotel down is its service though. We were originally given a room with twin beds (rather than a double as requested) without a working shower. The reception staff we extremely unhelpful and unfriendly, and only when we threatened to change hotel did they offer us another room. The breakfast serving staff were also very rude. Given the range of leisure facilities available, this hotel is quite good value, but don't expect too much from the rooms or the service!
We are mature independent travellers and we never booked an all inclusive before. This hotel offered all you could possibly need. The room en suite was spacious with a powerful shower. The service by the wonderful staff in the hotel and on the beach was excellent. The food and drink was top quality and in abundance. Overall this hotel offers great value for money.
