The Hotel Tour Khalef is ideal for water babies – there’s a lot going on at the pool, and it’s just footsteps from a golden-sand beach.
This place comes with a huge pool right at its heart, which is also the hub for daytime activities and evening entertainment. When it comes to dining, there’s a standout barbecue place on the beach.
The hotel is on its own private stretch of white sand at the edge of Sousse. And it’s a 20-minute stroll along the beach to the restaurants, cafés and shops in Sousse’s centre.

Tunisia is absolutely fabulous
Only problem with hotel was that the night times where pretty lame , not everything was open as advertised in winter sun brochure. Water sports , different bars and snack areas where all advertised as being on and when we arrived none where available.More
Very good hotel for a good price- would recommend.
Btilliant hotel for the price. Staff were helpful and got good tips on what days out to do. Entertainment was cheesy but we thought it was funny. Food was good. Drinks were good. Beach was clean. Pool was clean. Rooms were clean and a good size. Food was varied and the al a carte restaurant was delicious. As you cant go out and about much in Tunisia there was plenty going on at tge hotel to keep us entertained. It was a lovely week in the sun. Lots of russians who are a little miserable but just an anecdote of our holiday. I would recommend. More
Christmas in Tunisia
We have previously stayed at the Hotel Tour Khalef in the summer season but have never been there for Christmas we booked a two week stay from 17th December until 31st December as we did not want to travel on Christmas eve in case of any delays from UK. The options for departures is quite limited in the winter season but we had a nicely timed flight available from Birmingham and took that. On arrival at the Hotel it was 9 PM and we were not expecting any food but were plesently surprised that the restaurant had remained open, although only limited food was still available we had enough to satisfy us until the morning. The room we were allocated had been recently refurbished, some of the rooms had begun to look a little tired, and rooms now have a safe provided free of charge. We had a problem locking the safe in the room so after reporting to reception one of the on duty managers arrived at the room to see if he could fix it for us he was unable to do so and said he would have maintenance sort it out in a few hours. We compromised and took a safe next to the reception desk which was just as good. The weather was not particularly good, it was December after all, but we had some nice T shirt days and some brave souls got sunburnt by the pool. The entertainment was all in the reception area which is large enough to be closer or further away from from depending on what you preferred personally. We chose to sit in the central area with other couples we had met where we had the comfortable sofas and chairs. The Hotel was decorated for Christmas with a large tree surrounded by "presents" and Santa window stickers and Christmas banners. The food was not as diverse as we were used to in the summer season and could be a little so so after the first few days. Christmas Eve was the big celebration rather than Christmas Day and preparations were evident for several days before hand. When the restaurant doors were opened we were all greeted by the staff, ladies were each given a real rose and all the seating and tables were arranged to view the central area where a singer and band had been provided after a number of starter courses the Turkey was paraded shoulder high through the restaurant by the catering staff to much excitement and ceremony before being carved and served. The same was done with the Christmas log which was very large, elaborate and tasty. On Christmas Day Santa arrived on a camel and gave out small gifts in the pool area and paraded for the benefit of the many young children, some adults were quite impressed too. The only low point was that some of the "day visitors" and families staying overnight were quite rude to the staff and let small children run riot through the reception area without stopping or correcting them. We have not seen this during the summer months when the Hotel is fuller with "experienced" tourists and more pleasant for staff and guest. The staff and management were as usual very attentive and could not do enough for you as a guest. Looking at booking again for the summerMore

Brilliant (except for the coffee)
I went on a one-week cheap all-in Thompson deal, and it was brilliant! The hotel lobby is a tourist destination in itself. My room was spacious and clean. Because of the shape of the hotel with two curved wings, some balconies get the sun all the time and some never see the sun. A shady balcony could be a big advantage in the summer. Even in January people were sunbathing around the sheltered outdoor pool. An indoor pool was available in the next-door hotel. *The two hotels are in one big compound, including a stretch of beach.) The food was very varied, something for every taste, and as it was always a buffet, you could swan around and try different things. Sometimes it felt like a treasure hunt, rounding up the cutlery, a drink, soup, salad, whatever, all in different places. A free bar was at one end of the lobby with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on demand. My only possible complaint is that I found the coffee pretty undrinkable and the "milk" for it seemed to be reconstituted powdered skimmed milk. Overall, that was a minor failing, even for a coffee lover.More

Excellent budget hotel
This is a nice, clean, friendly hotel that fully deserves its 3T plus rating. The rooms are spacious and have a fridge and a safe. The en-suite bathrooms are large and have a hair dryer. There is a lot of choice for the buffet meals. Wi Fi was good in our room and near the reception area but not every room has good coverage. At this time of year (January) most of the residents are retired folk so it wouldn't suit people looking for excitement. It does look a little tired in places with chipped paintwork, some broken tiles and the carpets could do with a clean but this isn't a 5* hotel so it would be churlish to mark it down for those things. The centre of Sousse is a 3 or 4 dinar (Â£1.05p...Â£1.40p) taxi ride away and is well worth a visit with its stone walled medina and museum. Haggling is a way of life in Tunisia so you need to know what an item is worth when shopping. The price asked bears no relationship to its value. Taxi drivers will also ask for inflated fares. Make sure you agree a price before getting in.More
