“A Great Late Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Do not come to this hotel if you are expecting total English Cuisine and a Full English Breakfast every morning, do come though if you expect good quality food from all corners of the world served by dedicated polite, courteous and pleasant staff. We had two weeks and it was always difficult knowing what to eat at any meal due to the choice, it can be said though it was always good whatever we had, as at times we were not certain. We did know the hot pancakes served at 5pm though and always had them, scumptious. The room we had was pleasant and always spotless with towels and sheets changed daily even though we thought that a bit to much. The hotel itself is large with lots to explore and be nosey about with exellent pools and beach, we were swimming in the sea in November with no problem. The hotel at this time of the year is very quiet and this creates a lack of atmosphere but the staff are so attentive in all areas of the hotel trying to ensure all your needs are catered for. We do suggest that you have a room with a sea view, do try the theme food evenings and even the body massarge as a first was an experiance. We did no Trips as we only wanted to relax, this we did but we had some nice walks along the beach both ways even though the right turn is more interesting and you have the port to visit at the end of your walk, we never got bored visiting there as it was always different. We will visit again at a different time of the year as even us found it all a little to quiet but a big thank you to all the staff for the excellent running of their hotel.

Room Tip: A room with a sea view, try the 3rd floor.

well after reading mixed reveiws I can safely say that I agree with most I dont agree though that the ^place is a dump we have found the place very clean and we have seen the hygeist going round each day checking pool water and inspecting kitchens tables and other areas the place is Kept very clean, I must say though the carpets look a little shabby in places but I suppose they have seen many feet over them;
food good cheff cooking anything I want all i do is ask
very quite here at the moment not alto to do but is a nice place and good value for money
I concur with most good reveiws so wont take time to bore you with my input Average hotel good veiws Kind people good food = good holiday

We have had a wonderful holiday at the Palm Marina. The hotel needs a little bit of work but it all added to its charm. It was low season and very few guests in comparison to the size of the hotel.
It was so very clean and the smell of the clean bed linen and towels each day was lovely.
The staff could not have been any better, the food was good and all in all it made for a great holiday. I would certainly go back again and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

OK the bed linen was the cleanest thing I experienced on our whole holiday to Tunisia. We would never go back to Tunisia for lots of reasons but the one that stands out the most is the sheer dirt of the place. I thought the Irish were the dirtiest people on the planet the way we rubbish our countryside but we are light years away from these guys. The whole place is a garbage dump with buildings on it. The hotel was ok but for all inclusiveit was dissapointing with the food and drink. We felt the food was so bland we lost weight as we could not eat most of their offerings. The hotel was far from clean and well past its sell buy date.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view

everything you could hope for to keep a family happy during a late-October/early-November holiday. Whilst slightly past it's best the room was scrupulously clean and towels and sheets were changed daily by extremely friendly chambermaids - the children loved the fact that their pyjamas were folded into fans or swans each day!! The food was great - hot things were hot and cold things were cold! More importantly not an upset tummy in sight all week! Plenty of choices at breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets with standard pastas, roast chicken and chips, pizzas and salads widely available for those too pernickity to try anything else!! Salad bar was amazing!! Staff were incredibly friendly - those at reception were really helpful and the waiting staff by the pool couldn't have been better bringing mattresses and drinks as needed. TunisAir however need to sort themselves out big time. Three hour delay on way out meant we didn't get to our beds until 2.30 am which was not funny with children. Then on way back chaos reigned at check in with some people allowed to push past into their own queue and families being split. Fortunately we'd been warned so asked for two lots of two seats together which we got. However when it came to boarding there was another two hour delay with a really unhelpful woman on the desk who thought it highly amusing to tell us that we might have to wait until the next day. WOULD NOT GO ON THIS AIRLINE AGAIN!!!!!!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms over reception as apparently the disco keeps you awake.

The hotel overall would be between 3 and 4 star.Pools and facilities very good.The staff were very helpful and friendly.The food whilst quite good was also a little limited and did not reach a 5 star rating,whilst reasonably happy to begin with, by the end of the one-week holiday was a little boring. The rooms were good although the carpet outside the room was a little dirty and occasionally smelly. Beds I found very uncomfortable.Apart from the carpet outside the room, everything else was very clean. The Tunisians were very friendly especially to the children. The weather was a little disappointing and from our experience was borderline for a winter holiday. The Tunisians are very pushy at selling and can be a bit tiresome so adopt a sense of humour. Mario on the beach was the best to approach. Overall had a nice holiday and was happy with the hotel but TunisAir were a complete nightmare and will probably stop me going back unless I can go by anohter carrier. We had several chldren and they put us all over the plane , the check-in desk in Tunis was completely chaotic.Thanks to other passengers we sorted ourselves out on the plane thankfully

Room Tip: Make sure your balcony isn't completely and always in the shade.
