we stayed 2 times in this hotel November 2007 and in december 2008. Was a lovely hotel. arrives about 9:15pm . they had left the resturant open cause there was alot that was on my bus staying in the hotel. Food wasnt brilliant cause it was left overs. but it was ok.
There wasnt many people at the hotel. (mainly aimed for the older people in december). there was a big family with about 9 kids and 6 adults that stayed in the hotel. So there was alot more english at tour khalef than the marhaba club. We was at the marhaba club every day and night anyway because thats where our friends work.
The pool was too cold to go in . it was freezing. i didnt stay around the tour khalef pool i was at the marhaba club pool. where it was the only swimming pool on the ground of the marhaba lot had a life guard.
evening eventertainment was dead the animators in the evenings would sit and talk to the people there and make the children that was there happy and make people generally smile.
Food was good it is better than the marhaba hotel. Still abit bland and boring and still aimed at the germans. Eggs was on the menu 24/7. they made pancakes in the shape of mickey mouse for the kids.
There are two night clubs onsite. marhaba Disco and Le Grottes. Both nice and have themes to the lay out. Marhaba disco's theme is Circles and its a Circle in side a Circle. Le grottes is like a cave inside a building. The seats are comfortable. and the dancefloors are big.
Drinks you pay for separate. Free with break fast but at evening meal you pay for them. its not like marhaba where they have the drinks card. You can just go to the bar and buy a drink with your normal Dinar's.
Rooms are Cosy with a big balcony. all are over looking the sea with a nice view over sousse. Beware the balcony's are very high up and with a 3 year old ( 2007 ) and (2008) its not a good idea. i would request a low floor.
We had a joint room so they were joining making this a family room. Maids Made up the room everyday change the bed sheets every 2 days and towels changed every 2 days.
Staff are friendly and Nice. Animation are lovely. they love kids and will do anything to entertain them to keep them happy. same with adults. Entertainment in the summer is more better and livley.
Weather was about 17-22 degrees. we had one day where it was 28 degrees. people were in the pool on this day. the weather in winter months is nice and warm but if you are looking to get a tan then go to fuetaventura or spain during december. you definatly wont get on in tunisia. So pack a light jacket for the night. It didnt rain in december infact it rained more in july 2009 than it did december 2008. we had thunder an lightening 3 nights in a row with the heavy hard droplets of rain.
Overall this hotel is good if you want a quiet stay. ( ill include that some people have said in their reveiws about the noisyness in the summer months of bora bora night club. In fact Bora bora nigh club is a good 25 minute walk from the tour khalef or 5 minutes in the car. the noise comes from Marhaba/Legrottes/Bananas/Saloon/Living etc!) Lovely Food and Staff make the guests feel welcome. i recommend this hotel to older people during the winter months. and the families in the Summer. People of any age if you want a quiet stay then this hotel is for you.
