Birthdays at Marhaba Royal and email

Going here at the end of August with my daughter and Wife's birthday on the 24th and 25th. I want to purchase some birthday balloons and cakes. Is there anything local or should I just email the hotel and ask them for advice? Daughter will be 6 and my wife will be..... Maybe I will keep that one to myself :)

Just have a word with the restaurant manager or your waiter when you get there. They will do anything they can ie cakes, table decorations and usually no charge but a nice tip would go down well.

We were in Tunisia for our wedding anniversary once and my stepdad told our waiter and asked if he could make the table extra special. Table was bedecked in flowers and candles and then as we finished dinner he brought out a big birthday cake with candles and the whole place sang happy birthday! Lol. Lost in translation but thoughts were there and was appreciated.

Best take some balloons as never seen them - but never looked either!

Few years ago you could not find balloons there but now more and more shops sell them.

But as you are only there for a few days I would take them with you, suppose you don't want to waist your time in looking in non-touristic area's to find them shops.

I don't think Sharpie is only going for 2 days

I think the dates indicated are the birth days of his wife and daughter

Sharpie

If you are at the hotel 2 or 3 days before these dates

I am sure the staff will be very helpful, as Steve indicated

Otherwise .email the hotel with request

Yes I know...

but even if you are there for a week or 10 days you don't want to walk around with a street map of Sousse in the killing heath...

I know they will decorate the table with garden flowers and candles... But if he really wants balloons I would take them (and a bit of rope also to ty them at the chairs)

I'm Sure the email will be answered nearer the date. We emailed our hotel (Belleview park) about my partners birthday. We got a special room , birthday cake and a couple of gifts for her. The waiters also sang for her.

But you would not need to walk round with a street map looking for balloons !

Just ask reception for likely shop or shops and get a cab

Or even better, take some party stuff with you

Its not going to take much room up in your luggage, is it?

A bag of balloons and some streamers ! ;-)

Sharpie

You stated earlier you had emailed the hotel

Did you book directly with hotel or use Thomson or Thomas Cook ?

If the latter, the hotel will not have your booking details yet, i wouldn't think.

Try again nearer the time you go .A week to ten days before

Regards
