“Good hotel for vacation”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Good price, average services.
The hotel area is relativ new. For fun you have to travel quite far away. Only several other hotels and many construction yards are next to the hotel. Good swimming pool. Several watersports on the beach. WiFi only at reception and always overloaded. Almost impossible to get connected.

Dirty, old and unsympathetic hotel, staff unable to speak english, LOTS of noisy Russians, shotage of food during our (first and last) dinner because of milions people. They have no empty rooms available for us despite of our early booking in March, 2013, they want to move us to Thapsus for one night and after that move us back to CW, but no way, we didn´t want to spend here no more time... We moved to El Borj (Eden Village) and stood there for all time of our vacation (and it was great great great!).

Dear Kerry,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Tripadvisor. We truly appreciate your feedback regarding your stay with us at Caribbean World Mahdia.

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience you experienced during you stay. I will make sure to address your concerns about the cleanliness of the public areas, the quality of the food with the hotel manager to ensure this situation is avoided in the future.

As you might already have seen, our hotel welcomes different nationalities; we strive to make available staff that speaks as many languages as we can. Yet, the front office staff as well as the animation team, and the personnel at the bars all speak English. Regarding the location of the hotel, Caribbean World Mahdia is located only 7 KM from Mahdia downtown. There are also a lot of attractions with in short walking distance (Quad center, Golf Course, Bank, shopping center, restaurants…).

During your next stay with us, please do not hesitate to call down to the front desk or the hotel manager and inform them of the situation as they will be happy to make sure to help you right away

We will be happy to further discuss your comments if you drop an Email to the headquarters at info@caribbeanworld.com.tn

Looking forward to welcoming you again at Caribbean World Mahdia and remain

With our best regards
Caribbean World & Sunny Hotels Group

Stayed here from 09/08/2012 - 31/08/2012. The brochure (Jetair/Sunjets) said this hotel was completely renovated, this was a lie! This hotel is old and extremely dirty! Rooms: we saw 13 rooms, all with dirty bathrooms, rust en mold in the bath, running toilets, terrasdoors (2 of 13) that you could lock. There is a noise coming from the roof, these machines provide aircon for the hotel, it can get very loud. Dirty sheets upon arrival, if you don't throw them on the floor they don't change them. The floor was sometimes cleaned, that was it. Terrasfurniture never been cleaned.
Restaurant: disgusting!! Plates, tableware with remaining food left on them, dirty glasses, windows and curtains were never washed! Chairs with birdshit on it! The floor was dirty, the terrace had dirty plastic chairs, they were never cleaned!! Not enough staff to clean the tables! Only 1 bar with 1 member of staff, you could wait up to 20 minutes to get your drinks! In the morning again, dirty plates and cups. Long rows again to get an omelet or pancake.
The swimmingpools were never cleaned, but the sea and sand were very nice. There is a towelservice at the reception, not once did we receive clean towels!
This was a very disappointing holiday for us as this was not wat was stated in the brochure. We spoke to many people and all said the same, if you are a clean person at home then this place is disgusting. Our host received many complaints from many many people! This hotel has a shortage of staff and has lack of hygiene. I have only one sugestion: stay away from this place!!!

Room Tip: There aren't any good rooms.

Just came back from vacation in the Caribbean World and we had a lovely time. The resort was beautiful, a happy place with many colours. There were four swimmingpools; a big swimmingpool with a bar in the water, an indoor swimmingpool, a relax swimmingpool and an aquapark with several slides. All very nice, with good supervision. The beach was only a 50 meter walk with a great sea. For a small price you could also do several watersports and for example fly with a parachute (I did it, and it's really recommendable!) . Of course there were people walking around the beach, trying to sell you stuff, but they weren't permitted to walk to the tourists. The hotel also provided security on the beach, and warned tourists for rip offs.
The food from the buffet was okay-ish. There was enough variety and a lot of choice, both healthy as fast food. There was a salad bar, a special Tunesian and Italian corner, a diet corner, BBQ, desserts and fruit and warm dishes (fries, rice, meat, vegetables, etc, etc). Also, there was a snackbar and a sandwich cafe (for lunch). There were many bars and you could get drinks everywhere, also take bottles of water "home". We only once ate in one of the four restaurants; you had to eat from a fixed menu and the food wasn't better than from the buffet. In my opinion, the buffet was better. If you do want to eat in one of the restaurants, be sure to make a reservation a few days ahead! Most of us did get sick though, possibly from the food or from the water. Fortunately, this was only during the first days (we stayed two weeks). Just be carefull with everything you drink/eat. It might have been just one dish that got us all sick!
The animation team was great, there were many activities for kids but also for adults. They offered a wide range of sports; yoga in the morning, aquarobics, volleyball, football, waterpolo, etc, etc. There were also tennis courses, but I didn't check them out. The shows at night were either hilarious or very poorly, but at least they tried. The nightclub was small and never very crowded, but looked good and had a decent DJ. The rooms were average, not very luxorious but okay. You got clean towels everyday (also for the swimmingpool!) and the cleaning wass good. The televisions offered channels in almost every language; a lot of German channels, BBC, a dutch channel, Russian (or something alike) channels and Arabic channels. The spa was great, unfortunately one of the staff members almost stole my golden bracelett during the massage. All other staff members were really nice. The prices were very reasonable in the spa. The hotel has Wi-Fi in the lobby, which worked fine when there weren't too many people. The hotel is situated in quit an empty area. There is one big shop, a bank and a restaurant nearby (10 minute walk). The nearest city is a ten minute drive with the taxi, but the city and its market wasn't really special. Overall, me and my family had a great time. I'm very pleased with the services at the hotel, and would certainly come back! One tip; give a generous tip to one of the waiters at the dinner buffet. You'll get the best tables and the drinks and so on will be served to you!

I booked 2 rooms for me and my kids, thought are communicating rooms but at arrival we found no the hotel don't have communicating rooms. Since the hotel was busy, we have been given 2 rooms far away from each other!!! that was a bad start. The rooms are very basic, reminds me of a 2 start hotels in EU. AC barely working and the rooms smell humidity. The food was very average and lines are long for some of it. It seems the hotel was booked over the capacity which made the quality below average.
The positive side is the swimming pool with the slides and the Mahdia beach which was great.
I don't recommend this hotel which does not keep high standard even during peak season.

Room Tip: Select rooms that are in the main building
