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.

On arrival we were welcomed with a drink and the reception staff were very polite and helpful. We were shown to our room which was a long way from the lifts and the outlook wasn't very nice - a derelict crazy golf course and unkempt garden rubbish site. We asked to be nearer the lifts and we moved to another room. The rooms are quite spacious but need redecorating and the lighting in the bathrooms is very poor. We unpacked and went to explore the area. On our return to get ready for the evening meal we were horrified to see ants crawling all over the floor and dressing table. They were coming in under the door from the corridor. We got rid of some of them, got ready for dinner and told reception. They sent a man up straight away to solve the problem. We had are meal, had a drink and retired to our room only to find the ants were still coming in. We also discovered the toilet was blocking up. Not a good first night. The next day we told our rep about are problems and she said we should move rooms again. This we did. The staff and reps were very helpful. At this point the hotel was not to busy. All this changed very quickly. We were not aware when we booked this holiday that it was Tunisia Independence Day and main holiday. Now the problems really start. The Tunisias' came in family units of anything up to 10/12 people plus children. We went for our evening meal and our table was set plus the wine we usually had. We went to get our meal and returned our table to find they had taken our table and we had to move. This happened a few times and when we came back to find stacks of dirty plates on our table which was obviously being used by us, we stopped going for meals together. One waited at the table until the other came back. This was every meal time. Children sat at tables unsupervised. Getting served was awful. You were pushed out the way by children and parents alike. The Food wastage was disgusting. The children were allowed to just run wild. They played in the lifts and stopped them from working properly. They spilt drinks in the lift. From first thing in the morning until midnight and after, these children just ran around, screaming, running along the corridors and generally being a nusiance. The parents would not keep their children in check. There were so many guests that running out of plates, cutlery, cups, glasses etc was common place. The waiters did their best to keep things running smoothly, but there wasn't enough staff. Raafet our waiter was very good with us. We choose our holidays out of season where possible because we like a quiet time - no children. We weren't the only people unhappy. Most of the other guests - all nationalities were very disgruntled. In amongst all this mayhem there was also a conference taking place for two days. This wasn't just happening in our hotel, it was at them all. I do feel that we should have been advised of the local holidays by our tour company. We were very disappointed from start to finish with this holiday because people had given it good reviews. But perhaps we should all look at that page in the diary that says Notable holidays around the world and book accordingly.More

A great four wees
The Tour Khalef had everything you could ask for. The food was great and varied. As it was out of season the entertainment was a bit lacking but I had a great time with Max and especially with Bilel sorry Billy. The hotel was constantly cleaned and I would like to thank Faouzia for looking after me. Thanks to Sam behind the bar and the two Kamels for their service. Will return later in the year.More

Daughters first holiday abroad
Just got back from Tour Khalef & had a fantastic time. It was our 2year old daughters first holiday abroad & she loved it! The hotel itself is lovely, very clean & the staff are brilliant. Very attentive! As it is still out of season not everything was "up & running" but this didn't bother us. Food was fantastic, great variety, all freshly cooked. Our only problem was as we had our young daughter some of the hotel users (not sure if they were guests or not) wanted photos of her. We felt very uncomfortable with this & at times felt she was unsafe. Also the Tunisians were quite hands on with her, picking her up & kissing her, which we didn't like! There is a photographer at the hotel as well who never asked for our permission to take our photos which weren't happy about. Overall though we did have a lovely holiday!More
Just got back from my weeks holiday at the Tour Khalef, and I have to say it was a truly great experience, the staff were always polite and friendly, the food was varied and plentiful and it was spotlessly clean. I did tip the staff, but was not pressured to, probably Â£20.00 the whole week, an odd dinar here and there, but its worth it, I got waited on hand and foot. The animation team were always on hand to offer activities but did not force it on anyone, they were Max, Billy and Jimmy, great guys. Sami behind the bar was super efficient and courteous as was Khamel, he was a star, hes been there for 30 years or more, that says a lot. The beach was clean and had lovely white sand. The hotel had a bit of eccentricity about it, with gentle banter between the staff and guests. If you venture into town, remove, or hide your wristband, as we were hassled by street guys claiming to work at the hotel and then drag you round to buy stuff from traders then ask you for a couple of dinars for showing you around. All in all a great relaxing week, I hope to visit again after the summer.More
