One word WOW, what a hotel, just got back home and we loved it
fantastic setting right on the beach, a huge hotel with entertainment day and evening,
staff so friendly, plenty of choice of food, for breakfast and evening meal on half board,
down sides was it is a long way from the airport to the hotel approx 1hour 40 mins, and there is not much to do outside the hotel, there are shops close by selling numerous items, but if you are looking for alcohol any where close (other than the hotel prices) forget it,
well if there is we couldn't find out where, we went to Mahdia centre 3 times and found 2 little back street units selling booze.
Taxis are cheap, get the price before you get in though, the friday market was an experience but very cheap items, also a trip to El Djem was fantastic note caution beware of the street sellers (scarfs) outside the amphietheatre there, one turned Extremely Nasty with us, nearly spoiling a pleasant trip, if you are easily offended or emotional maybe Tunisia is not the place to go as there is poverty to a large scale and outside of the hotel it is not that tidy or clean mostly, but would we go to the Mahdia palace again? Yes but now we have more knowledge of the pit falls and prices to expect to pay there.
