Sousse has great conditions for a holiday with kids – soft sand, clear sea and gentle entry to the water. The Mediterranean sea has a beautiful shade of azure.

On the beaches spend time not only tourists but also local residents. In the evenings, Tunisians come to the sea in their families. Sun beds are paid, but are inexpensive. If you like active rest, rent a jet ski, go “banana”, water skiing, admire the coast from a parachute or go sea fishing.

Sousse vacation tips

Tunisia is a former French colony. Locals speak Arabic and French. English is not too popular.

According to reviews of tourists, hotels in Sousse inferior to the Turkish, and the Mediterranean Sea is not as rich as the Red Sea in Egypt. However, to visit the Tunisian resort is worth it! Seaside Sousse is very colorful, and beach holidays in Tunisia are worth the money. Find out how much money to take in Tunisia.

Traffic in the city is quite heavy. The buses are old. The fare is taken by the conductor. A lot of people ride, so the seats are always busy. It is more convenient to travel around the resort by cab – yellow cars. Keep in mind that from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. the fare doubles.

In order not to spend extra money in cafes and restaurants, rent apartments with a kitchen and cook yourself. The lowest prices on products in the big stores “General” and “Super Market”. There are other shopping centers that sell cereals, vegetables, fruits, bread, olive oil, spices, sweets, and alcohol.

Going to Sousse! Reviews, Tips & Prices for your vacations – 2022

October in Tunisia: dull, dirty and already cold We went to Tunisia after reading online reviews. The air temperature is still nothing, but the sea had already cooled down, 20-21 degrees. In Egypt, the streets are dirty, hotels are strongly “surrendered”, and the traders have lost all shame. We decided to go with Tunisia, there was less negative information about it. We ended up with a “combo” of all the faults. Perhaps we were unlucky and my review is strongly subjective-negative, but perhaps my experience will save you from a bad choice.

Tourist season is coming.

Vacation 2021 in an economical hotel in Tunisia: not everything is smooth, but the vacation was successful. We have been to Tunisia many times before, we always liked this destination much more than Egypt or Turkey. Took a proven hotel, which already stayed in 2018. Marhaba Club Hotel 4* is a budget option, and if we had not been there before, I probably would not have risked taking a hotel of this level if I was flying for the first time. But I can safely recommend this hotel, they try very hard even though it’s a budget hotel. All hotels have problems now and they are about the same, so don’t

We took a tour to Tunisia for 74 thousand rubles for two people. Hotel Novostar Royal Beach 38, Sousse, meals on a breakfast basis, plus the bar included alcoholic beverages produced locally.

By the way, the flight was delayed for 3 hours, there was no food on board, or rather it was, but in the form of a sausage sandwich, cookies and tea. I did not understand if it was a package deal or just cargo passengers were not allowed to have hot food.

The hotel has a 3.5 rating and the last

Holidays in Tunisia with children - 2022. Best hotels. Prices. Reviews

Dear Colleagues, I read @Irina Vorobieva’s post about staying at our hotel Novostar Royal Beach 3* in Sousse, the review, in general, is very positive and kind, it is nice, thank you! It is clear that any feedback is invaluable to us. That is why I have read the review of our esteemed tourists several times and can not help but share my impressions. Thanks to Andrew and Olga, who “were not afraid of negative feedback. And rightly so! The hotel joined the Novostar Hotels chain in 2021. All reviews dated 2020 and earlier, we kindly ask you to attribute to the previous team! Andrey and Olga had to be one of the “trailblazers”.

I have to hand it to their observation: the guests quite rightly pointed out that the hotel is not suitable for holidays with children. And yes, on our website https://novostar-hotels.com/novostar-royal-beach/, in the section devoted to this hotel, it says so in good Russian: “The hotel is not recommended for accommodation with children – preschoolers and children of primary and secondary school age.

But further, doubts overtook me with each phrase more and more. The praise of the staff “the staff is responsive, understands Russian” does not quite reflect reality. Responsive – this is true. But “understands Russian” is almost a metaphor. Our receptionists Anastasia and Maxim work in the hotel all the time, answer many questions of our guests, tell them about everything in Russian, Russian speaking animators work, and all the most important information in the hotel, such as signs, names of dishes in the restaurant, are doubled in Russian. By the way, about the food and the restaurant: The saddest thing in the travelers’ story concerns the food. The sadness about the food began with the description of the flight.

By the way, NONE of the flights we took was late by 3 hours, all landed on time, + / – 5 minutes (there were guests of tour operator Coral, I can not say exactly how their flight landed, but here is a couple of tourists Andrew and Olga, colleagues from Coral could not remember). Yes, and on the airline Russia give only water))).

Now about the food format “The cost of Andrei and Olga included breakfasts. Our hotel, if we are talking about NOVOSTAR ROYAL BEACH, works on an all-inclusive system and only on that basis. If the time of action is June 2021, there are simply no other options (pardon, on B/B you could book through Bucking, but unorganized Russian tourists in this period the hotel did not accept). The post is illustrated by colorful, atmospheric photos, but they were not taken this season, it is quite possible that guests took them from the Internet, but I will be glad to introduce you the actual photos of the hotel and surroundings, taken this season 2021.

Tunisia in October 2022. Where to relax? Weather, prices, reviews

Dear friends, we are always glad to receive feedback and impressions from guests, guests of Novostar and other hotels where we, Carthage Group, receive tourists from different countries, but it is necessary for us to have real holiday impressions for the season 2021 and not memories marked with the current number for some reason. For memories of our past lives we have tours)))

So, concluding my post once again I want to say thank you for your attention to our hotel and positive, but because the group is called Tunis Info – the key word is “Info”, so I shared the information. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Tunisia! Yes, and it is especially nice to write this post about the Novostar chain today, 08.06.2021 on the 8th Birthday of the chain!

Tunis, Sousse 2021: It is better not to be guided by the reviews about the hotels, which left tourists in previous years, now here everything is very different. Until the last we did not believe that we could get on vacation. Officially Tunisia is closed, and our manager informed us about several flight cancellations to Manastir a week before our departure. But thanks to Sunmar, a miracle happened and we flew out on vacation.

Tunisia, of course, is not quite ready to receive tourists, or rather the hotel base of Tunisia. They should try harder and work faster, otherwise after the opening of Turkey or other destinations Tunisia will lose against their background. But at the airport everything was perfect: promptly
