Just got back from a fabulous 2wks at Iberostar Mehari Djerba. Transfer was about 40 mins from airport and arrived just after 8pm. On arrival we were told to go and have our evening meal and fill in the checking in form. This hotel is classed as a 3 star so we always go open minded but must say we were very pleased with it. The hotel has a lovely big pool and beach( we stayed around the pool mainly) no fighting for sun beds- plenty to go around.
Rooms was what you would expect the only thing what stumped us was the shower head holder, when its in the holder it shoots over your head onto the back wall as its in a fixed position. My husband tied ours in place and re-did it every evening so the cleaner didn’t throw the cord away other than that much the same as any other hotel room. One more point on the room our room only had one plug socket luckily we have come across this before so we always take a small multi plug extension lead with us.
Food was lovely, got fed up of hearing people moan about food. If you don’t like the repetitiveness of the food then don’t go all-inclusive as this is how it works and if you only like English food then stay in England. I can’t work out why some people go abroad to be honest. You would never starve here no matter how fussy you are and I can be fussy I just accept that this is how it works and get on with it.
The entertainment team are a great bunch. I had read on here before we went that the entertainment was rubbish! How I look at it is we didn’t pay 5 star prices so don’t expect 5 star entertainment. I would say go on a cruise and pay the price if that’s what you want. The team ask you to join in but are no way pushy if you say no they leave you alone. They do very well considering the hours that they work- always smiling and friendly.
The hotel in general is nice and clean, the staff are lovely and friendly from the cleaners to reception. The two shops in reception- haggle hard and you will get a bargain.
Having been to main land Tunisia we found that there isn’t as much to do but what you do see is more of the real Tunisia, this is what we went to see. It’s a great place if you only want to do a couple of trips but more chilling and the weather is hot hot hot. Having heard some stories at the airport coming home I think we picked one of the better ones so do your research on here before you book any hotel.
All in all we enjoyed this hotel. We got two wks at a great price with great weather so I don’t see any point of looking for things to complain about. We would go back to this hotel for a chill out holiday.
Go to the crocodile farm 10 mins away by taxi, and the market in Midoun on Thur And Fri.
