Bringing a baby to Marhaba Club

Does anyone know about buying baby essentials near the Marhaba Club in Sousse? And also if they have a kettle & fridge in the rooms? We are travelling in Sept with a 6 month old so will still need these essentials. Don't know if they have large supermarkets like the ones in the main European resorts and if they are much more expensive

Hi GN75

They don´t have a kettle in the rooms

They will how ever have some stuf to buy at the hotel, and You will find small supermarkets near by.

There are a supermarket nearer town where they sell

stuff for babys, but ... I have had all my children with me when they have been babys , but they have always been a bit older then and the oldest one I had with me first time he still needed special milk, but at that point we stayed at Samara Club and there the was a small kitchen area with what we needed.

If your baby is drinking formula milk then I'd advise you to take it with you - powdered formula is only available in some pharmacies and would not be a brand you'd recognise (if that is important to you). Ready-made cartons of formula are not available at all. You will find recognisable brands of nappies e.g Pampers/Huggies in some shops - but they are expensive. Peudouce is the most widely available brand, and you'll find both nappies and wipes easily. You'll need to take your own travel kettle I would imagine as they are rarely available in hotel rooms - a lot do have small fridges though. If making up formula from boiled bottled water choose the brand 'Safia' as this has the lowest sodium content - other brands have high levels. You will notice a difference to popular European resorts - for example baby-changing facilities when out and about are very rare. September will still be very hot, so be sure to take total sunblock for the baby (again, not easy to find and very expensive) and a pushchair with a shade/parasol. Hope that's helpful!

I took a 7 month old to PEK last year and would advise taking everything you need with you for the baby. A good sun shade is also essential - I have used a Shade-a-Babe many times on holidays and highly recommend it.
