The Hotel Tour Khalef is set on a private stretch of sand, which gives way to the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s in a good spot for getting out and about, too – you’re just a 15-minute drive from the centre of Sousse and the city’s ancient medina.
The hotel itself shares its grounds with three other properties, so you’ve got plenty in the way of facilities. The main swimming pool covers a large area, and it’s flanked by a scattering of palm trees. Landscaped gardens skirt the water, too, so there are lots of sunbathing spots. You can also use four other pools in the complex.
Dining revolves around the hotel’s buffet restaurant, and you can try traditional Tunisian dishes or tuck in to home favourites like roast beef. There’s also a great little pizzeria, and a poolside café that serves up snacks around the clock.

My husband and I have just returned from a weeks holiday, we were there with friends at this hotel and we shall not be returning. Good Points - bar staff and reception staff were extremely helpful, we tipped little and often, around 1 dinar for each round of drinks served - cleanliness, hotel spotless throughout - food, good choice, I think there was only one ocassion where we didn't like anything that was on offer - hotel lobby, lovely area for sitting, large comfortable sofa's and drinks served until 12am - rooms, bigger than your usual hotel room abroad, make sure you ask for a pool view room if you want sun on your balcony, we were given a sea view room which does not get any sun at all, we asked to be moved which they did on day 3 Bad Points - Animation team, most were ok but we were constantly harrassed by these people whilst sitting in the hotel lobby trying to enjoy a drink (one in particular), they demanded money for things like bingo and lottery, I told them I didn't like to gamble but I was continually asked throughout the holiday. I also did not appreciate being sneaked up on and having something shouted into my ear. They would also try and but into your private conversations and when ignored would talk over you to get attention. I understand that the hotel employ them to mix with guests but I felt their presence irritating and uncomfortable and annoyed that they wouldn't take no for an answer or take the hint that I wasn't interested in talking to them. Restraunt waiters - I had read so many great reviews about the service, I was disappointed as the service was slow, you had to shout for top up's and despite generously tipping our waiting I felt the service was less than attentive. Rooms - The corridor's leading to the rooms are badly in need of a makeover and the rooms themselves are a bit tired. The mattresses defintely need to be replaced, my husband and I spent the entire holiday with a very painful back, the beds were extremley uncomfortable. Spa - what they don't tell you is that you have to pay to use the indoor swimming pool, 40 dinars per session which is very expensive. given we had really bad weather during our visit being able to use the indoor pool for free or at a reduced cost would have been appreciated Overall it would have been a good holiday had the animation team not spoiled it for me and the beds had been a bit more comfortable. I got to the point of going straight from dinner to my room and also sunbathing on the balcony as the animation team also annoyed me at the pool.More
We had booked this as a getaway to spend time with the kids aged 9 and 6, but it fell on my littles girl birthday so I emailed the hotel to see if we could sort something out and did they deliver. We had booked a family room with bunk beds but when we checked in the hotel had gave us two rooms with interconnecting doors, result! The Head receptionist beckoned me to a section behind the desk where he discussed my email as he thought the birthday cake was a surprise! He told me to come down the following morning to confirm the cake and pay 25 TND (about £9.50) with the details. That night the waiter assigned to our table had decorated the table and got all the waiters to come up and sing happy birthday to her and brought out the cake which she was delighted with. All this was dealt with great deal of class by the hotel and made our daughter never to forget this birthday. Waiters in the bar area, Mohammed and Lofthi were brilliant tip them well and they would keep your glasses topped up all night. 1 dinar per order 38p, saved you from walking to the bar! Waiters in the dining room were good you had one waiter for breakfast and one waiter at your assigned table for lunch and dinner. Tipped Rafeat our waiter at the start of the week with the promise of another at the end of the week and he looked after us drinks on the table ready for us sitting down and our table was decorated on our last night. Rooms ok had an issue where a lot of older German residents were in the hotel and seemed to like there TV at max volume late at night but one call to reception sorted this out immediately. Towels changed every morning and tipped the chambermaid who did a very thorough job each day she was in place was as clean as any where we have stayed. Pool area clean and you go straight onto the beach also. Plenty of sun beds with cushions. Food different from usual Holiday fayre but there were good food at times but two nights it was pizzas and flatbreads as the food on show didn't look too much to our tastes, we never went hungry though. The resort itself didn't look too clever but we needed to acustomise ourself to a change in culture, but still the culture of haranguing you until you bought something in their store didn't sit well with me. Tunisia really surprised me in a positive way as a first time visitor for a relaxing one week break, where they love family and kids. Many older German people who were holidaying in the hotel long term would speak in broken English and were very polite in speaking to the kids. Anyone been on a cruise or in USA would get the tipping culture that exists in Tunisia but really it is buttons in the grand scheme of things as 10 TND is £3.80 and the staff looked after you. Hotel pleasantly surprised, staff a delight, Sousse as a resort, you need to get into a different mindset, but it was November so would keep an open mind and would not be disappointed with returning to this resort and this hotel at all.

absolutely fantastic holiday...eventually!!!
. say eventually as had to try out 3 rooms before paying an extra 80pounds because despite everyone i asked in thomson shop if it was all wheelchair suitable. well.. the interconnecting rooms are a must because the 3rd bed crowds the rooms and blocks the balcony door to get out. the rooms are a wee bit tired looking but are still lovely comfortable places to be. very clean and maid was so nice to speak with. most speak broken english but a giggle or two with the language solves everything...and a dinar helps. money exchange very easy in the hotel..great rates just now. welcome meeting was interesting.no real pressure to go on any trips but it is such an interesting historical country you have to do at least one. my husband,son and i chose a trip to El Djem. again told it was fine for me to go. sorry..it is NOT!!! a death defying slope down and spine shattering cobbles and i was in the most awesome arena. it is beautiful and my back ache was worth every cobble.guide was very good. fantastic photos. then it was on the bus. a wee tip here. whoever is pushing the wheelchair..you r going to have to be very very fit. the slope back up is hard work. the food at tour khalef is plentiful and lots of variety. waiters attentive and keen to help. clean spacious dining room. pool bar good as well. free cushions for the sunbeds. quieter this time of year. kids club closed for winter..do they not play in winter? shame. weather mainly nice. warm and sun most days. any rain clears away quickly. thunderstorms can develop quickly. amazing sight. entertainment staff do their best and are all very good fun. some upgrading of their stage etc would help. one of the most scary things i have EVER witnessed are the roads. o my god!!!! if you see a space you just go for it...saw a HORSE tied to the car in front standing on a flat bed trailer. poor thing. crazy stuff. my son and husband went quad biking. well worth it. went to el kantoui. lovely boats but again cobbles cobbles cobbles, did a bit of haggling and got lovely bargains.overall it was a wee break away and loved it. will be going back but wont go on any trips. hotel is great and has a spa so you can laze the days away in utter luxury. nice terraces too. met some great people and will keep in touch. so..go to sousse..hopefully you will also have a magical time. one last wee moan i have is that ramps are few and far between and are at a scary angle. wouldnt recommend going down them alone..always get assisstance....unfortunately tunisia is well behind on disability issues. starting to improve a bit now but a long way to go.please tip the maids, porters,anyone who helps you. even one diner is greatly appreciated.for all the classy looking hotels poverty is absolutely and sadly very very noticeable outwith the complexes.,More

Amazing Hotel and Resort
Arrived back from Sousse on the 6th Nov 2013 and would 100% go back, after a 10 night stay, all inclusive, with a twin room, balcony and sea view for just £410! On arrival we were greeted and met by the people of the hotel, who were really friendly and helpful. Our hotel was lovely, clean and the bedrooms were presented very thoughtfully. Every single member of staff I wanted to shrink and put in my pocket to bring back to the UK, as they were well mannered, humorous, cheerful and ALWAYS SMILING. The "animation team" were also very, very lovely, entertaining both the parents and the children with clubs/games/activities throughout the day and in the evening, which many hotels fail to do/have these days! The currency difference is VERY GOOD. 2.6 for every £1 in English currency. This is a bonus, as everything in Tunisia is very cheap anyway, so you ended up getting a bargain 10 times over for any purchases you made! The hotel was very clean and also really well presented and organised, bringing a nice view and a "home" type atmosphere. The facilities were also really clean and always checked up on. Rooms were cleaned daily and the maids did excellent jobs, working really hard. The hotel staff tried to involve everyone in participating with activities and games and made us feel very welcomed, as well as wanted, which was very nice:) The food was also very, very good. There was also a selection of foods, from all different backgrounds and countries and there was plenty of it to go around! Being all inclusive, it gave us a pool side snack bar, as well as the main restaurant and food all day! They do a range of meats, chips, rice, spaghetti, fish, pizza and a load more meals to chose from, so you'd never go hungry, as there is something there for everyone. There were also around 30 activities to chose from in which the hotel and your holiday rep would take you on, once you'd paid for them. These are shown to you on the day you arrive, or the day after, depending on when your holiday meeting is. You can attend the massive market, where you will grab your deals and a lot of copies of items from the UK for very, very cheap such as converse. You can also attend the massive zoo, or go on a safari, where you can stay over in the desert the night and see all the animals, as well as where starwars and other movies had been filmed. These were very cheap for the deals you got as well! for example to go to the market it was 64dt, which in English currency is around £24 per person. This included a meal near the sea (which was either 5/3 courses), a tour around the massive market and also wine testing! which is a great deal for what you got to experience. The activities are endless and each one is explained in full detail at the welcome meeting on your arrival at the hotel itself, so i'd highly recommend you attend it! There are also many things to do on the site, as you can go around 2 other hotels, as well as your own, due to them all being connected. In this way, you can go in their pools, shops and also eat in their restaurants (only the food in your hotel is for free, so others you obviously have to pay for). There is also a spa and hairdressers, as well as many shops on the sites and around the sites. There is also indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a gym and beauty treatments, which the ladies will love! These are also very, very cheap, due to the currency being so good in exchange rates. Many activities are also available outside the resort, such as the Waterpark, the different towns and other places in Tunisia, like the harbor and the Madina (huge market and shopping place). One place in which I attend was the Harbor, in Port El Kantaoui, around 10 mins away from the hotel itself. You could get a taxi here, for just 6dt, which is around £1 odd in our currency (more than a bargain!!). The harbor was a beautiful place, with many boats and boat trips in which you cold go on, as well the catamaran and also fishing trips. The harbor has a lot of places to eat out and also explore, as well as the fun fair there, a small zoo (which is not very good, but is only around 35p to go) and a lot of shops and places to purchase bargains, so i'd 100% recommend this as a day out! The weather was amazing, never below 30 degrees, so heat and a lot of sunshine is guaranteed! Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel and any negative comments that have been left are to be dismissed and ignored. Not going to this hotel means you'd be missing out on a wonderful place and a cheap holiday, as well as a lovely hotel, the sun and many amazing sites and settings to see.More

we have just returned from a wees holiday,and i can honestly say i dont know what previous negative comments where about. we had a lovely ,clean room fresh towels daily,and toiletries replenenished instantly. the hotel is large with different areas to relax,the outside terrace was loveley on an evening to wind down after dinner . the pool area was spotless and plenty of sunbeds available,the weather was excellent.the beach also was clean with ample sunbeds for all. the food was varied with plenty of choice to suit all nationalities. the animation team worked tirellessly and didnt pester you if you didnt want to join in. all in all a great holiday and we will certainly visit again.only gripe would be having safety deposit box in reception was a bit of a let down but that is all.More
