Hotel Marhaba
Ranked #7 of 35 Hotels in Sousse
Reviewed March 21, 2010

Stayed at this hotel for a week in november and it wasnt what I expected. Hotel itself is very easy on the eye hotel staff work very hard to keep grounds etc.. presentable, restaurant is ok, waiter insists you sit at the same table every night sometimes with other guests, which my partner and I flatly refused, so be firm, food wasnt the best. Pool bar ok, waiter service if you tip (all hotel staff expected tips), all inclusive food only at certain times of day, Room was large and very comfortable beds. We ventured out of our hotel a few times and it was horrendous every 2 steps you got someone hassling you asking for money or to buy some of the rubbish they try and sell you on the street, even got asked to buy pound coins and a kitten ! Beware of guys who come up to you in the street who say that they know you from your hotel its a scam to get you in a shop where they lock the door and hard sell you, it didnt happen to us but we heard the stories. Overall enjoyed our holiday especially cheap jet bikes but if you want hassle free time Tunisia is not the place to go

Just got back from Marhaba hotel in Sousse

positives.. Bar and restaurant staff very friendly ,Rooms basic but clean,Resort lovely,pool lovely

Negatives..Most annoying thing was no glasses for AI guests Have you ever drank G&T from a white plastic cup?Even wine !!! Half board guests got glasses !!!
Food bland +++and repetetive.After 2 days we wanted to come home.Lived on pizza and salad.
When ordering a drink the arm band was scanned When I asked why I was told vaguely that it was to monitor stock.We have travelled all inclusive in the past but this was certainly by far the least enjoyable.
Our room was at least 5 mins walk from receptionand there were several steps to be negotiated on the way.
The cleaning staff were very friendly but extremely noisy.they started to clean early in the morning around 7am and shouted the length of the corridor to each other .Banging doors etc.
We are not hard to please but this was definitely a serious let down and I would never go back.
