“Fantastic hols!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Not long got back from 2 weeks in the royal Salem and can honestly say I loved every minute of it. Hotel was nice and clean, maids, waiters and bar staff were all very helpful and friendly especially ridha are waiter for meals and Mohammed our pool side drinks waiter. The best part of the holiday for myself and my 10yr old were the animation team......Alex, Momo, NIno, DIno, Fifi, Ben and so many more I could name were absolutely fabulous and worked so hard day and night to give everyone a good show. The thing that I find a disappointment was the salt water pools, most of the 15 members in our party disliked it and didn't use the pools as much as they would've liked. But overall.......FAB FAB FAB!!!!!!!

Returned 8th June had a lovely holiday, the staff were amazing - thanks to animation team, Mo Mo, Alex, Ben, Dino and Sagon to name just a few they were brilliant. Held lots of activities but no pressure to join in,. Food was great plenty of choice, there were 15 of us with a very fussy eater, children and a veggie amongst us but we all enjoyed the meals, our waiter Ridha was amazing would constantly refill drinks, and ensure we had everything we needed. The whole complex was clean and the pools were lovely only complaint is that they are salt water which the children didn't like.
When we arrived my sister had booked a family room but they had used the balcony space for the extra beds, she was offered a room in the sister hotel just 2 minutes away which was huge but was still able to dine with us.
Any Issues were dealt with immediately not that there were any problems, would definitely return to this hotel

we arived home yesterday from a week here, we thought we were booked marhaba royal salem, but its 3 hotels in one complex we were alloted to the marhaba salem. which in the end turned out to be the better of the hotels, we could drink in any of the bars and use any of the pools but we had to eat in our own hotel dinning room. food was good. good choice, only complaint not enough tunisian food i think they are trying to please to many people who want to be in a little england germany or france.staff were very friendly and helpful, think tipping at the beginning of the week helped on that score. entertainment well they try hard. but are very very friendly.white red and rose wine, bit iffy but had worse, vodka gin and various other spirits, i wanted white rum but they only had bhooka(cant spell it). quite a few children there and babies and all was well

we have just returned from 1 week in the royal salem hotel, good bits and bad bits, good bits the staff are lovely and so is the cleaners, the pool areas are fab and there is 3 pools, indoor pool is fab, the beach is lovely, the drinks are great, our room needed updating it was very tired, we stayed on the 3rd floor and had a lovely sea view,the food was ok i always found something to eat, out side of the hotel there is really nothing to do, the hotel is situated 40 mins walk from sousse and 40 min walk from other nearest town, so u have to get a bus or taxi, sousse is very dirty and medina is mad, dont go in if you dont want to be hassled because this is what happens, i was with my husband parents and our 14 year old son, we didnt stay in long it could be quite intimidating, on the whole we had a lovely holliday the weather was fab and lying by the pool with a drink was great, dont think i would return to this hotel only because of where it is situated, love tunisia tho, the people are lovely, its hot and its very very cheap when you are there.

Room Tip: we stayed on the third floor and had a lovely sea view

We have just got back from a great holiday here. The hotel was great - it was clean and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. The maid left flowers in our room and made swans etc out of the towels. The food was excellent. So much choice! I'm sure I have gained a stone! The kids loved the food too. There are a number of swimming pools - must admit we mainly used the salt water one with the slides - great fun. There are lots of water sports to do from the beach. The animation team are great - lots to do if you want to, but happy just to chat, or leave you alone!! We went into Monastir - very nice, and we also went on a fantastic two day Sahara Experience trip - two long days but we now have memories that'll last a lifetime - well worth it!

Me, my mum and dad went to this hotel 2 years ago it has changed in the past 2 years. It was really clean, the cleaners were fantastic. the staff were friendly The animation team were fantastic including Sarah, Momo, Ben, Alex, Nino, Dino and the others. Sarah was really nice she came up to us every morning and night to see if we were all ok, she was like part of our family. The rest of the team were funny, loud, crazy but really really good at dancing never seen such great dancers at all. The food at the hotel was very good, the waiters (servers) were very helpful. We have never been to the same hotel before apart from this year and i hope we go back again. Going to miss everyone at this amazing hotel can't wait to come again. Amelia (Meme)

If you have kids I would highly recommend this hotel. I have just returned from two weeks holiday with my two kids ages 4 and 5. The hotel is clean and the staff were amazing all very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Alex and the animation team were fantastic they made sure that you were enjoying your holiday at all times. I don't usuall ever return to a hotel or area again once we have been but for the Marhaba Royal Salem is the exception and we will be returning next year as both myself and the kids enjoy it so much. When out and about I would recommend a trip to the port you will soon get used to the local and the haggling. Be aware if visiting sousse as whilst I was there, I few other holiday makers had been robbed but as long as you are mindful and keep your wits about you it should be ok.
