Spent 11 nights at Marhaba Beach in July. Could have stayed a lot longer. This hotel is lovely and staff are very pleasant and helpful. Our room 152 was of good size and overlooked the pool, with the beach in the distance. Bathroom was quite big and shower over bath very powerful. Rooms were cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis by very pleasant cleaners.
On your first visit to the restaurant you are allocated your table for the duration of your holiday. This worked really well as restaurant can be very busy and it meant your waiters got to know you and your drinks orders from breakfast to lunch and dinner. On your last night your dinner table was beautifully decorated with flowers which was a lovely gesture. Food was always plentiful and loads of choice. Omelettes at breakfast were lovely and chef was lovely too. There was also show cooking at lunch and dinner times and also pizzas made freshly to order. Desserts were lovely with very decorative fancy cakes and every flavour of ice cream you could think off. In addition to main restaurant you could enjoy your lunch at the beach barbecue restaurant which we did every day. You could opt to eat from the barbecue or select other meats and fish dishes, spaghetti or pasta or a nice salad. Again you could order fresh pizzas, omelettes or fresh sandwiches and to finish all of you can indulge in icecream or fresh fruit.
The waiters were very helpful and always pleasant as was the chef.
Special mention to the waiter at beach bar who kept my large glass topped up with Diet Coke for me, very much appreciated.
Now for the beach. It was lovely and kept clean. The hotel had a private area on the beach which was good and the guy working the sunbeds was a gem. He always had one for us on the waters edge and he worked really hard in extreme heat.He was so pleasant with everyone. The sea was so calm and warm.
There was a lot of water sports which you could do.
The animation team at marhaba beach must be the hardest working bunch i have ever seen on holidays.These guys and girl are upbeat from 9am to midnight. They are all so pleasant and have a smile for everyone. They do not pester you to take part in any activity. Although i didnt take part in any activitiy as i am a sunbed freak from early morning to evening i did enjoy the music on the beach during Aqua Aerobics which certainly got the crowd going. Also enjoyed the childrens disco as it brought back memories of years gone by with my own daughter.
I also must mention the guys in the hotel shop and the banker. Always very pleasant.I also brought a hair colour with me which the hairdresser kindly put in for me and at the time i also had my hair cut. The stylist was lovely and very thorough with great blow drying technique. Strongly recommend you treat yourself with a visit to the hair dressers.
I cannot comment on the swimming pool as i went to the beach every day but would like to congratulate the environment workers on how good the grounds were kept with lovely flower beds and completely litter free.
For 10dinars you could hire your beach/pool towels. And also 2 dinars per day for safety deposit box.
On summing up i would like to say that if you choose this hotel you will not be disappointed, you have everything you would want for a very relaxing holiday with the beach on your doorstep, caring and pleasant staff, great food, animation team who excel themselves and of course plenty of sunshine. Book today and you wont be disappointed unless you only book for a week cause you will want to stay longer.
One tip: Duty Free shops at the Airport do not accept Tunisian Dinars when leaving so make sure you have Euro or Sterling for those last minute buys.
Any questions you have please email me.
