“lovely :)”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Was my first time in Tunisia and I was dubious after hearing some of the horror stories but I couldn't fault it, was a great holiday. Rooms are fairly dated but they are clean. Service was excellent, they cant do enough for you....for a tip. Food was good, even being a fussy veggie I never went hungry. The private beach was lovely and well kept with a great beach bar. The town itself is very lively we were not stopped once by anyone wanting money or selling. Will definitely be visiting Tunisia again.......you did have to get up early to get a sun bed though!!

Have just got back from a 2 week stay at the Salem loved it, already booked to go back in November. Hotel was clean, food choice was excellent. All staff couldn't do enough for you....but helmi and his entertainment team were beyond doubt the best we've ever had. Working around the clock to keep everybody happy. This hotel offers great value for money and is suitable for everybody...Thank you all at the Salem for our holiday one we always remember ....

One of the best holidays I've been on! Everyone here is really friendly and smiley. The facilities are excellent and the services are top notch. Any problem we had was resolved, not that we had many. The food is again some of the best, buffet every night with something different to try, the deserts were definitely my favourite. The only problem we really encountered was that we had a leak in our room around 2 in the morning and it was resolved within 15 minutes which is better than any service I've ever had, even back home. We went on a few excursions and there is a wide variety of things to do, Pirate Boats, Museums, Coliseums, Quad Bikes, Jet Ski's on the beach and much more. Everything is worth the price and family friendly. The entertainment at night was good for the kids, lots of dances to learn and sing to. The 'adult' entertainment after the kids show wasn't the best though, the staff who did the dancing and the cabarets were decent but the Tunisian night and some other things weren't the best but it's still nice to sit around the pool and have a few drinks. But overall an excellent experience and I would definitely go back again!

Just back from our annual family holiday at the Mahaba Salem resort Tunisia. Overall this place caters for all ages with loads of good quality activities if you wish or simply a nice place to relax. The kids are really well catered for with 4 pools and the all day entertainment staff work tireless hours to keep things going day and night. The staff all round were wonderful and extremely obliging and in particular our restaurant waiter (Adele) and bar waiter (Mohammed) were both amazing, extremely chatty and fun to be around without affecting quality of service in any way. Our rooms were basic but cleaned to a high standard daily. Be prepared to get up early for good sun beds but it's worth it you get all day to chill once they're sorted,
Hotel Good
Facilities Very good
Food Good
Activities Very good
Evening entertainment Ok
Staff Excellent
Value for money Very good
Had a great 2 weeks and will definitely consider returning

Just arrived home after spending 2 glorious weeks in this hotel. Everything was exceptional, lovely members of staff who are very welcoming and pleasant. The food is very nice and varied. Rooms are really clean and you get clean bedding and towles everyday. The entertainment staff are a pleasure to be around, everyday these guys make you smile, the things they do are a pleasure to watch and to join in with. I have to say Larry 1 of the entertainment staff is an amazing guy, i have to say he is my favourite lol he always has a smile and makes people want to join in. We will defainatly be looking into going back next yr and would defainatly recommend this hotel.

Just got back from an amazing holiday with two of my friends as three young girls we thought we would struggle but the staff at the hotel were very friendly (outside the hotel a little different)
It's hard to fault but a few things could have made our stay a bit better. we struggled to find sun beds at the pool or beach unless you got up mega early, we also struggled with the pools being salt water rather than chlorine it stung our eyes. The bar staff were great but we were not brought drinks because we didn't tip them.

Cleaners were brilliant our towels and beds were changed daily.

However what really made our stay was the animation team. So friendly and helpful, they put on great shows in the evening games during the day and dancing by the pool. Would like to make a special mention to maxi, larry and kahlil who made an extra effort to talk to us and make us laugh.
