Checking in and out was easy and fast. Staff are nice. Room is small. Food is very good. Bars are poorly managed, Main bar ran out of wine at 10 pm. Beach bar has only water and fanta to serve. I wouldn’t go back.

Special praise to Micah (singer) and Hamza (archery) - they are the best! All the animation team is great but the 2 of them are simply the best! 🙂 Bungalow is very good, cleaning lady was kind and helpful, food could be more varied, beach is beautiful. There should be body lotion and hair conditioner provided for the guests in the bungalow.

I recommend the hotel, the food is excellent, everyone can choose. They cleaned the beach several times a day, the sea was clean. The rooms are rather average, but tidy (but you only go there to sleep anyway). I was a little bothered by the system of borrowing and returning towels, when only the loan was from 8-14 and the return from 17-19. Which was a bit impractical during trips, so we took our own towels.

This was my best vacation this year. I had such a great time. A few weeks before I had to leave I got injured. But everyone was so helpful. It was the sixth time for me and it was one of the best times. I’ve met so many nice people at the hotel. It was the first time we’ve used the mini club and it was amazing! My godchild loved Mohammed, Riley and Hayal. Every day he went to the mini club with a smile and came back tired but with a bigger smile. Because of my injury I couldn’t do as much activities as usual but I really enjoyed doing archery. Hamza is the best teacher ever. Because of him I really fell in love with the sport. He explains is so good and corrects every mistake so everyone can shoot good at the end of their vacation. He also talks in a positive way to you so you keep motivated. The evening program was also always amazing. I really love the shows and my godchild also enjoyed watching the shows. I also want to thank Yassin and Willy for helping me out during my vacation. And last but not least I loved to spend time with Bruno. He is an amazing dancer! We will definitely come back to the hotel and I can recommend it to everyone!

10/10 experience from the beginning to the end. Great people, incredibly funny entertainers. Highlights were definitely archery with Hamza and the evening shows. Hamza was the archery instructor of the hotel and he deserves all the best. He is kind, funny and makes an incredible teacher. Everyone was able to see that he lives for the job and loves it a lot, putting in a huge effort to make the sport enjoyable for everyone. The evening shows were incredible, the atmosphere created by the dancers and singer was unbelievably awesome. Micah is an amazing singer and Jason makes a great dance captain! But the rest of the team was marvelous, too! It's great to see that everyone loves their job, even though it is exhausting and a lot of work! The staff is really kind, the room service as well as the people at the bar is courteous and the two weeks me and my family spent there felt wonderful. It was like coming home, you were welcome everywhere. Even the entertainers we didn't have a lot of contact with (for example Kids Club) were open to get to know us, kind and really a fun time spending time with! We will definitely visit the hotel again next year and we can really recommend the hotel!

Last week I was on vacation with my family at the Magic Life Penelope Beach Hotel on the island of Djerba. I really liked the environment with bungalows and swimming pools, so our stay was very calm. I really appreciate the access to sports and entertainment activities that we easily signed up for through the app. Also the food was amazing and there was some tasty snacks available throughout the day. I would like to thank all the employees who were really kind and friendly. Also special thanks to a young man named Hamza who taught the archery lessons. He was very nice and patient, so after only two lessons I already hit the bulls-eye. I had an awesome week! Thanks MILA

Sofia, Bulgaria219 contributions97 helpful votes
Excellent hotel with superb service. It shows the class of TUI. Food: varied and always something to choose from. Multiple pools and a small water park (which we didn't use). Great service staff. One of the bartenders at the 24/7 bar was great and quickly remembered which customer ordered what. In the main restaurant in the area immediately to the left the drinks guy was great. The beach is very good, we had the misfortune of having rough seas and a lot of sea grass thrown up. But that's life. We stayed for a week (2 of the days we were in the Sahara) and I think we made an excellent choice of hotel. We would go back again but in 2 weeks we think.

We were at Penelope Beach in early August and very happy with our one week holiday. The hotel rooms are clean and well air conditioned. The reception has very dedicated staff and has accommodated our request prior to arrival. Unfortunately, there were many algae on the beach in the first days due to the waves. The beach section is surrounded by many watersport stations. The watersports team at Penelope Beach was top notch. Every morning we could use the wakeboard and water ski offer. In addition, the TopCats were well prepared for sailing and transported from the beach to the water. The entertainment team created a good atmosphere. We enjoyed beach volleyball with Yassin and Hayal. The food in the club was unfortunately very monotonous and overall only mediocre. 4. 2 out of 5 stars.

Dear 871patn, thank you very much for the positive review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed a great stay with us and that you especially liked our water sports offer. Please understand that the seaweed that washes up is natural and it is forbidden to remove it in Tunisia. It is a source of food for many sea creatures, shows good water quality and can be touched without hesitation. It is a pity that our gastronomic offer did not appeal to you. Our dishes are always prepared with high quality by a chef who works very conscientiously. We would be happy if you visit us again soon.... maybe then it will be enough for 5 stars :-). Many greetings, Social Media Team TUI MAGIC LIFE Penelope Beach
