Just came back from a week at Caruso Palace and decided to take a look at what others think. Firstly, the two reviews below are way off the mark on most aspects, lies in fact (how can a fried egg which is cooked in front of your eyes be cold? - and the Port El Kantoui main area is not 45 minutes away, walking at a slow pace it was 10 minutes away!)
Yes, tipping is a big part of the culture, and yes you do get subjected to some hassle. A lot of countries are like that. Also there wasn't much entertainment but a little bit of prior research will prepare you for that.
The food wasn't inedible or whatever nonsense the person before said. In fact, this is one of the only holidays where I haven't experienced some kind of traveller's illness. Dinner had a great selection of different meals both local and international which were nearly all cooked to perfection. There was always somebody making pancakes - delicious - and I never saw a dirty table cloth. Lunch from the pool area was amazing value for money, always tasty and friendly service.
Rooms were all lovely and clean, and never had any problems with that. Air conditioning worked a treat (free as well). Baths were luxurious and, again, the person before must live in a strange world of super showers because we never had any problems there either.
All in all a really good, relaxing holiday - defo value for money. Pool was super with its bar, the beaches weren't kept 100% nicely but they aren't the hotel's so you cannot really complain - the sea was lovely and warm with no jellyfish.
