my husband and i stayed two weeks in April.2014 The hotel is clean and basic and generally all the staff helpful. Food and service good in buffet La Fiesta only place to eat tho as all other s closed. rooms clean and everything you need cleaned every day. waiter in romeo and juliettes very rude and meal not very nice. (only allowed one meal in there per stay wish we had not bothered. Animation team all lovely and worked hard to cheer everyone up( thanks Sam Bebo kiko freddy and Heather) and put on shows with very limited resources very repetative tho but all nice and helpful. Bar staff in piano bar at night time lovely. As all inclusive customer expect to be able to have a coffee or snack 24hrs piano bar closed at 12 and not open till 10.30 am (coffee machine in bar shut with bar next available drink 6.30am at breakfast time, only snacks if available cold sandwiches in piano bar to take away in afternoon.fitness suite not available in price and beauty salon closed drinks extra in shisha bar and night club. night club appears to cater more for prostitutes than guests.pool bar also closed. pool clean and looked inviting. beach only five min walk away but so cluttered with rubbish and Souse is a dump.no skinny cats bless them because loads of rubbish and food around and hassle from sellers there and groups of men just hanging around such a shame because the sand is lovely and the sea bed not stones or rocks. .Harbour lovely only ten min walk away but you get hassled all the time by every shop and bar and restaurant put us off going out. I dont think this hotels knows who they are catering for and it appeared to be a stopping gap for many business men and short visits for others. I don,t think many English familys would enjoy this. lots of false advertising if bars restaurants not open in quiet season then should not be sold as all inclusive. the hotel was not an all inclusive hotel

firstly this is my 5th visit to this hotel and tunisia. this hotel has been always the best place to stay in. lovely staff at reception specially the reception manager Makram and the guy in the night was so funny. restaurant wise our waiter offered us a permanent table and they all were so great and happy to serve us. the chef was great as one of my mates asks for veggi food and the chef was happy to make it on request for him and explain for us the ingredients. bar slightly limited choices but it was alright i loved the tunisian beer :)
entertainment guys were good always want to make you happy but one of them was slightly rude with other ppl.
something need to mention the hotel has a nightclub in it so it's a bit noisey around the reception side but this won't affect you as no rooms downstairs. Also the hotel has a shisha bar and i can't wait to go back again there as we spent some lovely time with friends smoking shisha there.
there's a good pizza restaurant you must try their pizza its about 10 dinnar roughly 3£
last but not least the location it's just few meters away from port el kantaoui.

all in all i totally recommend you to stay at this place as you get what you paid for.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the swimming pool lovely view and preferably with a balcony :)

This is my 2nd time in this hotel and guess what? I found it much better than last time especially with the help I received from the staff. When I got there about 10am,my name name was not on their list of arrivals so they did their best to get me sorted. They rang the tour operator in Tunisia then the agency through which I booked my accommodation who said they got my name but on that date. The agency fault. Anyway,I got my room by 11:30 although the checking doesnt start until 2pm ;-) The room was magnificent with LCD tv on the wall,the colours were coherent,the bathroom very clean. Overall everything was tidy and as it should be for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. I loved the atmosphere in the cafe maure and tried the chicha ;-) The food was really tasty and there was a lot of choice. GOING BACK SOON

just got back from a weeks stay with my girlfriend at this hotel. we loved it! from the minute we walked into the hotel we were greeted by the lovely reception staff and shown to our room. the rooms are nice, stylish and clean. the resturant and bar staff are great, they always remembered our drinks order and made us feel welcome every time. the hotel was very quite during our stay, but thanks to the animation team we were kept entertained all the time. through the day the would join us around the pool and in the evening they put on a great show, great dancing and even funnier scetches!! they made our trip just that bit more special, Heather, Fedi, Bibo, Sam and Kiko, all great!!!!! overall we had a lovely holiday and would definatly recomend it and would come again

I have been a week at Marina, Port El Kantaoui 4089, Tunisia (Formerly Vincci Resort Kantaoui Center). I really enjoyed the evenings as the entertainment team put on a really good show. They did it allmost nights, SEM and KIKO are really Nice people. Would recomend this hotel. All staff are excellent!

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday. The food was amazing with plenty of choice every day. Nice rooms with comfy beds. From the very first day the thing that stood out was the helpful, friendly staff. The animation team Fedi Heather Bibo Sam & Kiko Bessamar, one of our waitresses and the lovely wine waiter and Khalid the barman.deserve a special mention by name.. Brilliant! All the staff are very busy but always had time to smile.
On arrival we didn't have a rep but when we asked the hotel phoned one for us, great service. The only thing is that I took a look around the hotel and asked about the fitness room and the sauna etc. While I was told there was a cost to use the sauna, it wasn't until after we used the fitness room that we were told there was a charge. i asked for a notice to be put up to inform other guests.

Room Tip: Rooms on fourth floor,
