The hotel looks good on the outside but has a very tired/worn look on the inside! Myself,mum and 15 year old daughter were there last week and found the food to be bland and certain things were cold.The towels you pay 10 dinars for aren't the cleanest and you pay 1 dinar to have them changed, the pool staff that get you your drinks aren't very friendly, the animation team are ok but very full on and not everyone wants to be hassled every day. The signing of receipts every time you have a drink is pointless to those all inclusive! Never have we done that in any other hotel we have been all inclusive! Going out of the hotel to the port is a nightmare as you constantly get hassled.

Kanta Hotel is one of the best Hotel I ever been. All staff a great and very helpful. Food are very fresh and testy. Housekeeping lady take care of our room every day and she change towels every 3 days. Entertainment are very friendly and taking care of you . If you want to be entertained all the time by them then chose the all inclusive option. Swimming pool and garden very clean. I'll definitely recommend this hotel and I be definitely go back here .

Stayed as a couple w/c 20th July for 1 week all inc. Was a bit apprehensive before our visit, but once we arrived after a day or so we were relieved to find the hotel was spot on and had everything we needed. Stayed on the 2nd floor just above ground level facing the back to the side of the lounge room and Piano Bar. Room was clean and spacious good air con and cleaner provided fresh sheets and towels everyday. The only problem we had and this is the only fault we had with the hotel during the whole week we were there was we noticed a few visitors in the form of ants in our room. We thought about asking to move room but we were in a good location and didn't want to make too much of a fuss so ignored it to start with. On 2nd day I mentioned it to the staff at reception and to their credit it was dealt with straight away the cleaner fumigated the area and filled the hole and it was solved within minutes. Internet lounge at end of corridor only place to get free wifi. Tbh I didn't want to spend the day hiding inside on the internet but handy if you need to touch base. Piano Bar was ok only had a couple drinks in there bit dark and dingy and smoky and one waiter was a bit pervy but you will get that a lot over there if your mrs doesn't look like the back end of a truck.

Pool was spot on lifeguard was helpful had a bit of banter with us even if he was a bit of a sex pest himself. Service at snack bar and outdoor bar was good didn't have to wait too long to be served. As mentioned elsewhere always worth giving a few tips to keep the staff sweet just 1 or 2 dinar here or there will go a long way. Buffet style food for breakfast, lunch and dinner was fine. you may get bored of it after a while but honestly its all you need quite varied and isn't too bad at all. If you fancy a change from this then it's definitely worth a visit to the Newspaper Restaurant on site. We booked one night for the Tunisian theme and really enjoyed it. Great service from the waiter and we were given 5 courses which left us more than full. A nice experience. The private Kanta beach is also definitely worth a visit. Nice and relaxing with an array of water sports on offer for a good price and snack bar available from 12-4 I believe. The Puca Irish Bar is about as Irish as Danny Dyer but is also worth a visit in the evening for a change of scenery and a few drinks. This is not included in the all inc package but offers some light entertainment, karaoke and pool to pass a few hours. We also did the trip to Friguia Park that the hotel advertise and was worth every penny. You get a 3 course meal and a walk round the zoo where you can feed the animals etc for a small tip and coach there and back for around 90 Dinar (£30ish)

Overall we had a great experience at Hotel Kanta and would recommend it to anyone visiting Port El Kantaoui and looking for somewhere to stay.

Me and my partner stayed here july'14, everyone was very friendly upon arrival but after the first day we realised you are only really welcome if you tip the staff. It seemed as if even their acknowledgement of your existence deserved a tip.

We often sat down at the outside bar only to be ignored, if we went up to order ourselves we were told to sit down, we had to wait over 30 minutes before we were even offered a menu, then whatever food we ordered was slammed infront of us and the staff would walk off without even a look.
My partner got into an argument over a receipt with one member of the outside bar staff, who then proceeded to laugh with the other staff as if he was proud of the scene he just made.

We were told we would have a free bottle of wine in the room, this is not true. The cleaner/maid also turns the air-con off every time she enters the room while you are out. When you have been in 40 degree sun and want to cool off for a bit you are mistaken.
The animation team work very hard and it shows, some staff are very friendly and also work hard whether they receive a tip or not. I can't complain about all members of staff.

You only get a cup of tea in the morning with breakfast if you go all inclusive, the all inclusive dining area does not include any kind of soft drinks or hot drinks other than water/fizzy drinks after breakfast. You would have to go outside to the bar in the heat.

There were two pools and I was made to believe one was a family area and one was more for adults or people without children. This was not the case. Not that this was any fault of the hotel, just that if you wanted some peace you wont get it.

I find it quite off-putting also that when you exit the hotel (still on hotel grounds) every time you pass the doors a man will beg you to buy a watch. Regardless of saying no thank you the 600 times you have seen him, he will still ask.

It was a good holiday, you have to make of it what you will but probably not a couple-friendly holiday really.

My partner and I stayed here w/c 20th July a clean and welcoming hotel. Staff were great. The animation team and pool staff are excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel. Ryan the rep was amazing and a great person too. Only downside to the hotel was no cider or malibu was available. The irish bar next door I would not rate very much. No guiness not really irish themed. Never seemed to receive change from our drinks.
I would love to visit hotel kanta again. The food was ok, tapas bar was amazing.
The staff work very hard and are very pleasant.
The staff even made a great effort by making my partner a lovely birthday cake

Myself and my friend (both female) soent a week at the kanta hotel and resort, everything about this place is brilliant, animation team for entertainment for families (sam and pikachu deserve a special mention), rooms absolutely spotless and friendly staff, food was good not alot of variety but to be expected really, everyone was very welcoming overall, great location only 2 min walk from the marina and musical fountain (which is fixed) upon check out however we did feel a little rushed out of our room and only after thinking about our deposit for safe, did me and another friend realise we didnt get it back, however when we went back to enquire about this, it was sorted out straight away.

Overall we had a great time, and couldnt ask for anything better, great staff, great location, value for money. 5 stars!! :)

Stayed for 2 weeks, first time in Tunisia and the friendly staff, within a great hotel made the holiday special. Sam and his animation team were superb...great shows made everything nice and relaxing whilst having a lot of fun. Food was okay, the maids and bar staff great....has to be one of the best, if not the best hotel in the area....special people! Thanks for a great time.
