Marhaba Royal Salem
Ranked #6 of 35 Hotels in Sousse
Reviewed June 14, 2014

The Royal Salem has changed hands in 2013 it has changed a lot since then for the better, the new Director is a hands on person likes to get things done. He has change the restaurant to make it better and has changed updated rooms. While changes are ongoing there is a lot to be said for this Hotel.3 pools to choose from which 2 are see water and 1 fresh water. Staff are friendly and being a smaller hotel they get to know you at a personal level. While there is a lot still to be done at this hotel the new Director is up for the challenges ahead.This year being the World Cup 2014 the hotel is providing a big screen for both smokers and non smokers. The new director has gone out of his way to make sure all guest enjoy this event each night while enjoying there all inclusive drinks. A friendly hotel for all why not come and see for yourself..

Room Tip: Each guest will be looked after regarding there choices of room just ask the friendly reception staf...

Relaxing by the pool, great good, fancy cocktails, amazing.
Entertainment was great too, a great team of people with personality. Really interested in us and getting to know us and encouraging us to take part. That Khalou is a cheeky chap too, very funny and wipped me repetitively at table tennis! Fire show is a MUST!!

Arrived early in the morn, booked in swiftly, porter helped us to room 118 in royal salem, we didn't like view over top of a roof, we asked if it was possible to move to another room, which, we were shown 2 rooms in the royal salem beach which overlooked the pool area with the slides, this was much better.

Room was fine clean bedding and towels every day and pretty flower art some days.

We enjoyed the food, especially the fresh doughnuts at breakfast, good variety in the eve, deff didn't go hungry. Here we were not restricted to a timeslot or table, the two waiters Arden and Tarik were brilliant, made sure we had our drinks, n promptly removed our finished plates, always smiling and pleasant.

Bar staff and waiters in all bars within the complex were always pleasant and smiley to us, we always said hello, good morn etc. Politeness goes a long way!!!

Poolguys/lifeguards were brilliant, whatever time we went to pool they would willingly get our sunbeds n mattresses for us great service. Thx guys!!!

Animation team, tbh didn't have a great deal to do with them during the daytime activities, so unfair to comment, although, watched the evening entertainment, and have to say I have seen better, they do try hard though and are brilliant with kids. Some of team would come and chat to guests throughout the day.

Hotel grounds were lovely and kept really tidy, took few days to find way around.

A few.negatives, paths around complex uneven, got use to it after few days though. Understand can't have glasses around pool area for ob reasons, didn't mind the rigid plastic cups, didn't like the disposable ones.

All in all had a fantastic stay here and thinking about returning nxt year.

Hope the cat and her kittens are doing ok :-) !!!

We (family of 2 adults & 2 kids age 13 & 12) have just returned from a 2 week holiday in this brilliant hotel. The staff were all amazing, nothing was ever too much trouble & they were all so polite & considerate. The hotel & rooms were clean & the food was really good too with lots of choice everyday & the free wifi is a huge bonus! The animation team were probably the best we've ever had the pleasure of meeting - especially Kalou & Smiley who were both FAB!! Already looking to book again for next year - see you then!!

Room Tip: Book a sea view - you may pay a little bit more, but the views are stunning!!

stayed in the Royal and found the staff fantastic especially Kalou, who made our holiday fantastic holiday would go again the bar staff knew what we drank and had our drinks topped up at all times, the room was cleaned everyday, the only complaint was that the air con is not put on untill the end of June, which was much needed apart from that fantastic holiday

The hotel itself was of a good standard for price and the room was always clean (I noticed the bathroom had been thoroughly cleaned every day.)
We arrived at 4am and were shown to our room, we did not have guidance about where we could eat etc and staff weren't helpful when we asked later that morning. Eventually, the ladies from the animation team showed us around and were lovely.

The beach was not private as there were locals who would often try to chat us up.
Some of the staff were rude and it was clear that they had little respect for women. However, there were also great members of staff such as a waiter called james who would go out of his way to be friendly to everyone.
If you are a fussy eater like me then I would advise packing snacks as the food is the same everyday.
The weather was great and the pools with the slides were great for all ages!
I wouldn't visit Tunisia again due to the fact that we were pestered by men and did not feel that we could relax properly.
