It has to be said this hotel deserves better reviews then what it has been receiving.
Here's the essay;
Young couple on our first holiday in Tunisia. Staying on an all inclusive basis.
On arrival at the tej marhaba we thought wow it really does look like the pictures.
Inside the reception area was beautiful all marble and clean, only down side was there was only one man checking 20+ guests and at 1am you don't want to be waiting around.
The concierge carried our bags to our room which was helpful as finding our room might not of been as easy if he hadn't. At that time we didn't have any dinar so we gave him £1 and he was very grateful.
Our room was very spacious and clean, our bed was massive (a double and single made into one). Although some rooms do have different. We happened to get a pool and sea view which we didn't pay for which was an added bonus. Yes the shower head is very low as previous comments state but I'm of average hight and had no problem, the power and quality makes up for it. Best shower I've had abroad. So yes there's a few stains on the carpets and in certain places the hotel is a little tired but for how many people are passing through it's a large hotel and maintenance must be hard.
Breakfast: rather simple; toast, sausage, meat, salad and cereal. The usual you would expect from a hotel. A nice added extra was a wide choice of breakfast juices and they did pancakes which were beautiful.
Lunch: there was always chicken or turkey for fussy eatters, chips and salad along with a range of other dishes and many desserts to choose from.
Dinner: pretty much the same as lunch. Top tip; if your a big drinker order two drinks each as otherwise you can wait a while as the staff are busy in high season. It states a dress code of long trousers for males at evening dinner unfortunately this isn't enforced as people where wearing what ever they wanted.
The pool area is beautiful plenty of sunbeds to be had. Always clean and the guys always get you beds and cushions. Pool bar is ideal to get your drinks and snacks from however drinks are served in plastic party cups, yes it's a good idea but maybe if they were better quality so when you took a drink you didn't spill half of it.
There is a lovely indoor pool. It's set out as a spa but unfortunately it wasn't complete while we was here.
The shopping centre attached to the hotel is good and worth a look. When shopping though don't pay something straight away as we found the same things at different prices in different shops.
There are other bars and restaurants attached to the hotel which looked nice but we didn't visit them. One place we did go was the Saloon Bar Steak House it was very nice and a change of scenery.
Entertainment at the hotel was good in the daytime many different activities including water polo, water aerobics, darts and bowls. Evening entertainment wasn't great but they did try.
Our holiday was last minute and the price was perfect we couldn't grumble about anything significant we have a wonderful holiday and would return back.
