I went to El Ksar from 26 June to 3 July 2012 with my partner for our anniversary. We booked a sea view room with Thomas Cook and received a fantastic view. The rooms were good, a very decent size with a larger than normal double bed and very spacious bedroom. Maid service was great and went over than the required levels to tidy our room.
The location on the beach is superb, the sea is overall very clean and we always managed to find a sunbed with the help of the security attendants. The main pool was always packed and the sunbeds had been taken by 8am so we went to the quieter pools which was much better- you have 4 pools to choose from.
The restaurant was the biggest let down of the hotel and both my partner and I struggled to find a variety of things to eat even though I am not fussy at all. I ended up being Veggie for most of the holiday, but I would recommend the Kebabs at the pool bar! The service was okay, nothing special and you will find that there is a very tipping culture, particularly the porters at the hotel and airport which we found a bit cheeky!
For English travellers we were very much in the minority, the hotel was full of Germans and Russians so we didnt participate in the animation, perhaps its just the time of year we went and the summer holidays will be more english people. The evening entertainment was limited, the shows were pretty poor and it took us several days to find out where the main show stage was!
Overall I was happy with our stay, I dont know if I would go back again as I like to travel to other places however I would recommend it as a good standard Tunisian hotel.
