“Holiday in september at Hannibal Palace”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

I stayed at Hannibal hotel for 1 week in September 2013.
The first night i checked in and the receptionist asked me for 15 Euros to gve me a good room with a nice view at the sea.
He gave me a nice room at the last floor,the sixth floor,room number 608.
The room has a gorgeous view to Port El Kantaoui and the Mediteranean sea also.
After we settled in the room we went to the Atlas restaurant where we have the AI meals.
During the 7 days spent we ate a good food in generally but the dishes were the same.
The waiters are always nice to you, giving you a hint that you have to give them a tip
They are very nice to you and bring you drinks and handkerchiefs to the table.
This is very important:even if we booked at the hotel with AI meals
You couldn't go and serve with drinks.
You must order the drinks with the waiters and after that they went to a bar and brought it to you.
And there are no handkerchiefs on your table, NEVER,so you also have to ask for them..
There is no WIFI in the rooms,only at the reception.
The internet is free of charge but only working a few hours per day,generally in the morning after 9 AM.
The weather was fantastic about 30 degrees in the air and in the water too.
Life is cheap if you negociate.
About the touristic points i saw El Jem collosseum and Friquia PARK.
Very interesting places and worth seeing them.
Important advice:ALWAYS NEGOCIATE for Everything.
.

Room Tip: Give a tip to the receptionist.

clean hotel compared to most I stayed in plumbing good plenty hot water small fridge n room safe available at reception for a fee ,room servicing not too reliable they need to employ more staff instead of giving the staff there too much rooms to clean !Lift broke a few times no lights in corridors upstairs well they have lights but I had to ring up a good few times to tell them to put them on.Staff at reception not too helpful except one lady and one gent who werent on very much!!,pool area clean sea area could be cleaner and there is actually a rubbish tip beside i!!!Got stung lots in the sea with jellyfish,and it was september.Air con not great but better than most ,this is supp to be a four star hotel I dunno who gave them the stars but be careful dont think that its four stars like our country (britain) cos its not !food is not good and not too fresh !Nice balcony there was no entertainment except once a week they had a disco full of locals who were very raucious!!And you had to pay to get in ?and they had a drag show once again which you had to pay to get into too.Very expensive hotel which we gladly paid for to get clean room after two other bad hotels.

Room Tip: I was on the second floor couldnt hear any noise from the disco it was peaceful

just a note its now called Hotel Caruso. The lounge and reception rooms are lovely as can be seen by other peoples pics. yes some areas are dated and could do with some mantanance. overall a nice hotel. The room was very clean and tidy, plenty of hot water for bath or shower. We even had a small fridge to keep our drinks etc cool.

This hotel has been recently degraded from 5 to 4 stars, it should be degraded further..
Here's what to expect;
1. You have to pay an extra 90€ to access the disco..and it is not worth it, full of drunk locals, security guys are aren't nice at all..
2. Maintenance is very bad, one lift is down since I arrived, and is still..the second one get down from time to time..so you will be forced to use the stairs a couple of times, if not all the time..
3. Wifi coverage is limited to ground floor..you have to go down to connect if you don't have 3G
3. Heated swimming pool is also down since months.
4. Food is very basic, not a 4 star anyway..
5. Don't expect to have hot water all the time, sometimes in the middle of the shower :(
6. The gardens outside are full of garbage, not a beatiful scene to see, when there are bottles everywhere..
7. They don't have magnetic cards for the rooms, so they still use old keys with a mass , old refrigerators, old TV sets, few TV channels, we had only one TV5..
Resume: choose this "hotel" only if you are desperate!
p.s. Check photos I'm posting!

this hotel should be closed down. it is damp dirty and run down. nothing works, and when you report it nothing is done. only 1 lift was working so we had to walk along unlit corridors for miles to get to the room. food very basic and repetative. 4 stars!! who are they kidding! no air conditioning. tv didnt work. fridge broken.

Room Tip: go to another hotel

I've just come back from my vaccantion in Tunisia, Port El Kantaoui. The resort is very nice, and the only good thing I can say about this hotel is it's great location. Has a lot of exits and all of them take you directly to the beach and to the yacht harbour. In rest, the hotel outside looks nice, is opposite to an amusement park. But inside all is very, very old. We found out that it hadn't been renovated since 1974, so is explicable. When you enter you feel a smell of old things. The hotel has 6 floors, and we had the room at the 4th floor, and at arriving the elevator wasn't working...The rooms are big, but the furniture, the minibars(which are empty of course) are very, very old. In rest, the room and the bath were clean, there was hot water permanently and we had a big balcony with sea view. The restaurant is a really disaster. The waiters are not very kind unless you permanently give them at least 1 dinar/day as tip. The ALL INCLUSIVE buffet is very, very poor, with a few types of food and if you don't arrive at the beginning of the meal hour you must be very lucky to find something to eat, because they don't bring extra food when the existing one is finished. Also, the ALL INCLUSIVE includes only breakfast, lunch and dinner, no snacks. The beverages included are only local ones, not very good. The pool is nice, but if you want to take something to dring from the pool bar you have to pay extra. They don't even give you bottled water, is extra, 3.5 DT.
In my oppinion this hotel is not a very good choice...take a second mind before booking a holiday there.
