Just come back from a superb one week all inclusive holiday to magic life, Penelope Beach in Djerba. My family, 2 girls 9&7, my wife and I had decided to book this months ago as a late sunny break for October half term. We were not disappointed. We read all the reviews beforehand so had a good idea what was in store for us. The weather was fantastic all week, at least 30 degrees, and you get around 10-11 hours of sunshine which is perfect.
Bedroom was ample spaced with 2 bathrooms (we had a bungalow room) and 2 double beds which worked really well. Tea making facility in the room and a drinks fridge which is stocked free daily. Obviously, you never drink the tap water.
Food all week was amazing, all freshly cooked with different themes daily. Don't panic if you're children are fussy like mine, they always has pizza, pasta, salad and plenty of treats such as bog standard ice creams with cones so my girls were pleased.
Plenty of different pools to relax around with an aqua park or the beach if you prefer. On the private beach was the banana boat and canoeing or if you fancy parasailing or jet skiing then you can pay around £40 for a family.
Evening entertainment was very good with a different show every night, or you can relax around the bar and play cards, table football or pool if you want something different. It was great not having to worry about money either it being all inclusive. I must say we did want to get out of the complex to see a bit of Djerba itself. We want with Ali babas quad bikes which was 120 Dinar (£44) 2 hours non stop amazing scenery and something different, the kids loved it.
Yes Tunisia is a poor country and you do see litter and rubbish knocking about. Yes there are a few people that will come up to you and ask if you want to buy some of their jewellery etc. don't be naive this is what happens in countries like this. Don't let it put you off you can just say no thank you!!!
Overall, great holiday and a big thank you to all the staff at club magic life from the Madgwick family. We hope to be back at some point!!!
