Travelling to Monastir - Tunisia club Marmara Tropicana

Please can anyone advise if they have stayed at this hotel. I am travelling with my daughter and partner and have booked a family room. Is the family room two separate rooms? My daughter is eight years old. We are going all inclusive can you advise on spending money for a week? What is the temperature like end of August. Any tips are advise I would be grateful as we have never travelled to Tunisia.

I'd give the hotel a good 4-4.5 out of 5. You can buy armbands at shop in hotel, which will probably cost approx 20 dinars so about 7 or 8 pounds. I got bit quite a few times so would take some spray, not sure what bit me though as didn't actually see any Mosquitos. And nothing particular to take really just the usual that you would take on holiday really. Although can be quite breezy on evening and seem chilly so maybe a jumper or cardigan just incase for your child

If the hotel has a kids club they will get armbands for the wee one.

Floats ? If you mean inflatable lilo, yes you will get them there.

Likely in the shopping centre phil mentioned. Or the hotel shop.

Yes, you may encounter insects. So take repellent .

I don't know what you want to pack

You wont need warm clothing. that's for sure.

On that, take plenty sun products and maybe a hat for the wee one

You may want to pop a bottle of calamine lotion in the bag too for sunburn.

We usually take wee first aid kit

Nothing major

Some germoline, band aids, that kind of thing

And drink plenty fluids.... It will be very hot.

I don't mean fruity shoots ...But water !

When are you going because in high season the hotel may be full already at that time?

Not sure if its cheaper or not to wait until you arrive but if it was me I would be on to whoever you booked with to book an extra room.

If you wait until you get there the hotel could be full and have no other rooms available. Perhaps share the cost of the extra room with your friends as their son will be in it as well?

As for the price - should be the same as your room as it will have the same number of bodies in it for the same length of time.

I included the hotel website link on this thread at post #10 ;-)

Try contacting the hotel direct by phone or email.

Yes contact the hotel direct, they will be able to advise the costs and availability, however something to bear in mind is that the additional room may not be close to the other two booked. Poss a good idea to check with the tour operator to see if more suitable accommodation can be booked this end you dont have to say yes immediately. Just cover your options.

Re Mosquitos many hotels spray and I am a magnet for the little so and sos - I take vitmin B for two weeks before and during the holiday, ensure that I apply insect repellent before leaving the airplane, I usually get bitten most on landing waiting for the transer, I pack some foil wrapped wipes in my hand luggage for this.

I also take a plug in repellent for the room and spray every day from just before sunset all over, also I buy aftersun with the repellent in it. Touch wood this seems to work, but there is always one or two bites.

It will be hot even at the end of August, so drink lots of water most hotels provide at least one litre per day per room sometimes more, if you think you need more go to the little shop by the hotel to stock up.

You will love Tunisia it really is a great place for relaxation and activities.
