First of all you get what you pay for. I don`t understand all this people with unrealistic expectations. 4 of us spent 2 weeks in El Mouradi Jerba Menzel and we did have a great time.
The Hotel complex is huge, many bungalows are there and some of theme are a bit far from the beach, pool, restaurant etc, so my main advise is try to get the room in the main building and you`ll be fine.
Rooms and bathrooms were very specious, always clean, we had big terrace with sea view and our friends were looking at the main stage so it was a bit loud till 23h and afterwards you could here music from the beach bar, but not that you can`t sleep. Humidity at Jerba gets a bit high at august so towels and your clothes will always be somehow wet so you just have to get use to it.
There are 2 pools with very salty water that can be harsh on your eyes for the first few days and there is one smaller pool with fresh water but it was mostly for the families with children but i did have nice swim routine for few days but you have to be there before 7am. Also if you want to have nice place on the beach or at the pool, you should put your towel on the sunbed around 7am, this is the case in high season maybe is not like that later, when there is less guests.
Beach was nice, sunbeds were not close to each other so you have enough privacy, we had 7 days of nice azure water and 7 days of sea weed and muddy water, but that is normal for this time of year, but there is always a poll so don`t worry.
Most of the guest are French, then Italian, and then English and German. Hotel was full so you have to be quick and skilled to get your food in the restaurant because people are very slow and confused and it takes ages for most of them to decide what to eat. So my advise is have a breakfast around 8am, lunch around 13:30pm and dinner around 20:30pm and you will maybe be lucky to have stress free meal. We missed all the specialties like tuna barbecue and different sea food because we didn't want to stand in the line and wait for 20mins. We are vegetarians and there was loads of varieties that you can choose from and still have a great meal. Sweets were delicious and not too sweet so don`t even try to resist them :)
Animation team was very hard working and helpful and always in good mood. Loads of activities that you can join and in the evening always a different show and afterwards dancing at beach bar.
We went on trip with a speed boat to see the dolphins and we were lucky enough to see them and this trip is a must. The closest town is Midoun and it takes around 4 dinars to get there by taxi but there is not much to see, mostly men sitting in cafes, not very clean but you can find loads of souvenirs and big supermarket were everything is much cheaper than in Hotel.
So all in all we had very nice, relaxing and sunny, holiday. Just don`t expect 5 star, small and too quiet hotel, but do expect to have a great weather, beautiful sea, loads of activities and you will have one of the best holidays.
