Mariqueen Hotel on Djerba is rated a 4 star hotel by local authorities, but I would rate it as a 3+ star hotel.
Hotel guests are mostly from Check Republic, Slovenia, France, Croatia and Italy.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, although some are very pushy in trying to sell some extra services, such as spa treatments, tattoos, horse-back riding ecc. (but you can easily get rid of them by telling you don't have any money left to spend :))))
Rooms get cleaned every day, and towels also get changed every day, although they provide you with fresh towels late in the afternoon (but most probably you spend your days on the beach or pool, so it's not a problem).
Rooms are pretty spacious - you have a twin bed + TV area with a spare bed (even more comfortable than the "real" beds), and each room has a fridge and a hairdryer in the bathroom. Every room has a small terrace or balcony, and is surrounded with flowers and plants.
There are 2 swimming pools for adults + one for little children, and they are all extremely clean, so you'll enjoy a swim even if you usually don't like swimming pools. Those are really the cleanest pools I've ever seen!
The food is really nice - you have plenty of choice each evening (no pork, but you can survive without for a week or two), and you can try some tunisian specialities every night. Breakfast are also OK, they bake croissants and buiscuits that are really tasteful.
What else... you have a lot of animation program during the day, and the animators really do their best to make your stay pleasant and active. Even if you don't like cabaret shows, sketches or dancing performances, you will laugh a lot...
You have a really authentic Cafe Maure on the first floor with really tasty mint tea that is a local speciality.
The beach is 10 minutes away if you go on foot, or you can go in a horse-pulled carriage (free). Sunbeds and umbrellas are free on the pool, as well as on the beach.
What else to say... I hope you'll enjoy your stay at Mariqueen as much as me and my two friends!
