“Holiday Village Manar family resort”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

A great place to bring your family. I brought my family here in early May 2014. I picked this hotel based reviews and price with our children being our main concern. I was not disappointed. Approaching the hotel the local area looks a little run down and the hotel its self is not as plush as you would find in the UK but this should not put you off. The hotel is lovely, the food is the best i have ever had over sea's and the people are lovley. The waiters cannot do enough, the bar staff are excellent, Anis in the lobby bar is very good. The house keeping staff are thorough and very freindly and the reps and entertainment team complete the package. This is our second holiday village and we will deffinatly be trying another. Things to consider though, the weather in May is mid 20s to 30 and later in the season can reach 45 which may be a little too hot for younger children.On the hot days the wasps come out although they dont bother you and during our stay nobody has been stung that i have heard of. Carly on the entertainment team is brilliant an Sam is the most helpfull adviser ive ever met. The childrens club is very good and the whole resort is very clean from the toilets to the beach. A great holiday with some lovely memories.

We are on the last day of our fantastic holiday. We were 1st off the bus on opening day, and we were greeted by the whole of the hotel staff and reps dancing and singing in front of us, completely OTT, but we loved it! From that moment on, we have have had a wonderful 14days.
The First Choice team have been amazing, my two children aged 8 and 6, have really taken to them all, and no wonder as they go beyond the call of duty, they all seemed such great bunch. Davey was a fantastiic compare for the evening entertainment who really got the crowd buzzing prior to the singing, which was far better than we had expected and we didn't miss one show.
The food has been good, but after 2 weeks I am missing home food (a decent fry-up), the waiters are excellent too.
This has been our 1st visit to a holiday village we are already talking about going to another one. We will be sad to leave.

Just returned from holiday village manar had a lovely holiday! hotel has the wow factor! our balcony looked over pools and had a perfect view of the beach. staff were amazing momo the lifeguard entertained everyone and looked after your every need, nesaredeem the hotel lobby barman was very quick to get you a drink and make sure you were happy, we want to return when amphitheatre is open for evening entertainment later in the year, food and staff in dining area was excellent missed having bacon though, Beach has lots of activities or you can relax on the plentiful sunbeds,they have a nice beach snackbar, the pancake lady was busy with fresh pancakes for breakfast delicious! overall 10/10 for holiday and staff.

Just back from a truly amazing week in tunisia....
This hotel is by far the best for children I have ever seen! Every single member of staff is happy, helpful and amazing towards the children! We went with a 9m, 2y and 11y old and all of them thoroughly enjoyed it!
Nothing is too much work for them! My baby loves bananas, they didn't have any so they actually sent someone to go and buy me some from the shop! FOR FREE! I can't explain how wonderful our holiday was! The food was amazing with a brilliant variety for both adults and children. They are CONSTANTLY cleaning, the whole hotel is literally immaculate! Entertainment was brilliant every night! The waiters are so lovely and will do pretty much anything you ask! Wael at the beach bar is such a lovely man and really makes you feel welcome! They have a nurse on site morn till late aft, whom you can see for free! Little one got an ear infection so he was super helpful and such a nice man!!!
All in all we had an amazing time and will definitely be returning! Thank you to all at the hotel for making our stay so immense!!!
See you very soon!

Well what can i say about Holiday Village Manar....
The first impressions of the hotel exceeded my expectations with a swanky london hotel feel as you enter the lobby with drinks served as you check in... and a bar in the corner...
Up to the Rooms they are spotless recently refurbished and look great! We had a twin room the beds were a little too firm for our liking but still a great stay and very clean, the maid cleaned our rooms everyday and changed the towels daily. And would leave hearts to swans made out of towels with rose petals on the sheets. Nice touch!
The jasmin restaurant is really nice, except i think they needed to supply more basic english food for familys with children... but there is a number of local dishes / cheeses / pasta and bbq grill just outside which was nice. Unfortunately breakfast we found got too much, there is no pork or proper ham/bacon so sausages are either turkey or hotdog sausages... and i think i did the week on ommelete and fried egg on toast, the kitchen and waiter staff were excellent could not fault them in anyway! Dishes collected quickly and drinks constantly flowing l.
The entertainement by first choice the kids and adults alike really enjoyed ourselves... the "proffessional acts we saw were apalling so left for the lobby bar but this is about 9.30pm as it is still classed as colder season in May they held the entertainment inside but found the speakers were on too loud for the venue.. which scared my little boy.

Outside there are 3 main pools an indoor pool and 2 children pools and water slides and more than enough sunbeds dotted round the village always had seating the lifeguards were really friendly especialy momo !!

Main activity pool had lots going on which passed the day especially if you dont like sitting round.

Manar has its own stretch of beach so a couple steps down from pools are white sand and blue sea... absolutely stunning and beach bar still all inclusive.. sea and beach were really clean and security on beach stopping traders hassling you...

One thing people often said were lots of flies we never saw any during our stay this may be due to the bio gardens and the cleanliness of the resort they are constantly cleaning... was really nice there are lots of lady birds down by the beach but they are fine.

We had some fun on the watersports which were really cheap in comparison 10 dinar for banana boats or crazy sofas etc and 45 dinar for jet skis and 50 for parasailing (or 2 people 80 dinar)

Overall
I will definately be visiting Holiday Village Manar everything is superb and all the staff are so friendly my 3 year old and friends children we travelled with felt safe and had an amazing time only problem it all ended too quickly and home to sunny Wales... first choice were great repz and the hotel staff were brilliant hosts Thanks Manar see you soon !

Top Holiday

Just wanted to send a big thank you to all the First Choice Reps at the Holiday Village Manar who were by far the best reps we have come across. Just to mention a few: Dave, Sarah, Carly and my 7 year old's favourite Flo (the entertainment). Also Davey, Lacey, Luke, Tom, Davina and all the rest we have missed off. Also all the hotel staff that did a fantastic job looking after us to complete what was a wonderful holiday. Going back again.
