We visited at the end of May, booked through last minute we wanted a cheap and cheerful holiday, after reading these reviews we booked Marhaba Beach, and were not dissapointed.
We flew into Tunis in the evening and got out of the airport with our luggage in less than half an hour. And unlike people that landed in other airports we didn't have a any problems with people trying to take our bags.
On arrival at our hotel we were greeted with a cocktail and checked in, in less than ten minutes. Even though it was really quite late (11pm) they still told us we could get food if we were quick and called the snack bar and told them we still needed to eat after seeing our room.
On seeing our double room we were really pleased, it was spotlessly clean, cool and we had a lovely balcony with a sea view (although it was difficult to see as it was so late)
Throughout our all inclusive week we couldn't fault he hotel, staff work so hard. Including our amazing waiter who served us at each meal throughout the day and the cleaners left our room spotless each day but would never disturb us.
The animation team who work endlessly lead by Rico, who is always willing to chat and was a great help you if you wanted to now things about the area. The rest of the team do activities throughout the whole day including archery, water polo and volleyball. They also put on some on the evening entertainment and love to get people involved.
At each meal we always found something to eat, you can also get food at the beach bar and snack bar and on our last night we had our table decorated in flowers which was a lovely touch. In the resuarant you are seated at a set table and it is buffet self service however I liked this because you didn't spend ages hunting for a table, it was always already laid out and you got to know your waiter.
During the week the weather was great and we took a walk (a rather long walk) down to Port El Kantaoui to see the Harbour which was stunnng. We visited back one evening and saw the dancing fountain that happens each evening throughout the year.
We visit the Medina and got some great bargains as long as your willing to haggle!! I didn't find sellers here as pushy as Marrakech Medina, you just need to be able to say a polite no thankyou and you will be left alone.
Tip- If you go out to the medina turn over you hotel bands so people can't see were you are staying otherwise people offer show you around (but expect a large tip)
We also went on the 2 day Sahara Trip which I would happily do again, made some great friends and saw some fantastic sites including Salt Lakes, Sand Dunes and Oasis plus our tour guide was great and very knowledgable.
Overall I cannot fault our holiday and have booked to go back again next month (November) as we got a great deal!!!!
Hopefully we will get to see some of the same staffs faces as back in May!
I would happily recommend this hotel to all age ranges and singles-large groups.
