“Best holiday ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This holiday is fantastic! The rooms are so clean and well looked after. The staff are very friendly and the service is great.
I came away for a week on my own and will be back in June!

I would live here if I could!
Strongly reccomend this hotel!

Very friendly staff, food was excellent, Noah, nassa and fifi were good at their job, weather not so good but made our own fun. Bar staff were great. Only negatives really,was the building work next door. Make sure you book any excursions through hotel, and not on the beach because although it looks cheaper, when your there, they make sure you spend on other things, when booked at the hotel, you only pay the amount stated. Men on beach are bit of a pain, nagging you to buy cigs and trips. Shows were pretty good, youngsters work very hard. We were surprised to see how many women there who travelled alone, but the attention they got from 2 of the youngsters was quite sickly to see. Although the 3 that I mentioned at the beginning were funny, nice to chat to, and not after one thing! Just friendly, polite and genuinely nice kids.

We have stayed at this hotel about 60 times and this is the first review I have ever written about the Marhaba Royal Salem.
The positives are many - excellent staff, good food, large rooms with an excellent sea view, good facilities and lovely gardens.
Food has improved since I last visited three years ago and I felt the all inclusive option was value for money. It may not be Caribbean all inclusive standards but you get what you pay for. If you are expecting British food then please travel somewhere different! In the last three years Tunisia has gone through the mill and has had to face major changes since the Arab Spring Uprising and some people need to remember this when they are writing their oh so critical reviews. What I have found to be so true about Tunisia is - that you treat people they way you want to be treated yourself.
The staff in the hotel are very courteous and cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable.
A dinar here or there as a tip for staff is very much appreciated as they earn very little money compared with European salaries. We also had an excellent New Year Gala Dinner.
Give the Royal as you could be suitably surprised!! Make the most of a different culture.

Room Tip: Fourth or fifth floor sea view.

We have stayed at this hotel 5 times. Cannot fault the service from the staff. Exceptionally polite and helpful at all times. Reception staff greet you with a warm welcome and your room is allocated without delay. Rooms are spacious and are spotlessly clean, housekeeping staff attend every day. Food is cooked in front of you at the restaurant and great variety to suit all tastes is available from the buffet. All inclusive bar is open from early morning til late at night. Bar staff work incredibly long hours but are always smiling and attentive. They bring your drinks to your table without being asked or expecting tips. There is a gym, sauna and a beautiful indoor heated pool with jaccuzzi. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and its own private beach which is accessed via their neat gardens. What more can we say? Will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the same building as reception
