Just returned from a week at the Iberostar Mehari Djerba, My wife and I have had a fantastic holiday.
The Iberostar Mehari is officially a three star hotel so we didn't expect too much we booked the holiday only 8 weeks before and got a great deal (Thanks to Wendy and the team at Coop Travel Shrewsbury!!) we arrived late and got checked in very quickly and were pleasantly surprised they had put on some food on for us only a basic salad but it was a nice touch and we were able to keep the Pringles we brought with us for later!
Our room was a ground floor room and was large enough for us and well located the cleaner kept it nice and clean and there was some nice towel arrangements left on our bed, we did note on previous reviews the bath was on the high side so care was needed to get out and beware of the shower it can bite!!!! it was rather powerful and you needed to hold on to aviod spraying the bathroom I forgot twice!
The food was Excellent typical All Inclusive with plenty of choice sometimes to much, it was also great to see the Chef's really proud of their work, we did visit the A La Carte Tunisian Restaurant and found the food there also of a high standard the only downside was the menu wasn't very clear in English the food was very good and the service again was excellent.
A lot has been said in reviews about the lack of English spoken by the staff and although the level of English sometimes wasn't good this did not mean the service was poor indeed the service at all times was absolutely excellent from Tarek at the Pool bar to Habib our waiter to the double act of B jemaa (we nicknamed him Benson! he was a star) and Anwour at the main bar always smiling and greeting us it was a pleasure to be served by them.
The Animation team has to be one of the best we have come across they worked extremely hard and put on some great shows, during the day they put on lots of events and did not hassle you if you just wanted to lay back and sun bathe, Special Mention must go to Coco, Alex, Willy,
and another I can't remember his name......................................................................................
of course I can JAMBO! he really is the star of the show he may be small but he really puts on a big act Thank you Jambo and team you really made our stay one to remember.
We varied our time between the Beach and the Pool the beach was very nice alway easy to get sun beds,
We did try the Quad Bikes arranged by the people based at the hotel and they were great fun my wife sat on the back of me and all I could hear was her laughing as we bumped around with me trying to do my best to be the Stig!!
There wan't many Brits at the hotel however we did make some great friends with Graham & Lynette from Bolton (Graham and Me put on a top line act with our "Livin on a prayer" Karaoke!) and Mark & Karen from Warrington (Mark you won our vote for Mr Iberostar!) together we all had a great weeks holiday at the Iberostar Mehari Djerba.
This may be officially a 3 star hotel we found it to be 5 Star for the Food, 5 Star for the service, 5 Star for the Entertainment, 5 Star for the Fun,5 Star Value for Money, and overall a 5 Star Holiday it excelled all our expectations we would certainly return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Get swept off your feet at the IBEROSTAR Mehari Djerba. By the varied cuisine of its restaurants, by its location on the sea front, and by its Tunisian style. Most of all, by the island it rests on: the island of Djerba, otherwise known as the island of the lotus-eaters. It’s a beautiful and mythical island that managed to enchant Odysseus after he escaped the sirens’ song. Once you lay eyes upon it, you too will have trouble leaving. Would you like to discover the secrets of this all-inclusive Tunisian hotel? Like new. That’s how our rooms will make you feel. Whether you come as a family or with your partner, you’ll have views of the sea, the pool, or the gardens. What’s more, we refurbished our rooms in 2016, along with the heated pool, the spa, and the majority of our bars and restaurants. A stone’s throw from paradise. Just in front of the hotel, the island awaits you with white sand, palm trees, and the turquoise waters of Sidi Akkour beach. Don’t miss the sunset from the Beach Bar, or take full advantage of the median temperature of 20ºC by taking a quick dip. Tremendously delicious. Be overcome by the flavours of Arab cuisine, by the aromas of its spices, and by its traditional dishes. Stop by the hotel’s family restaurants and enjoy its all-inclusive plan. Can you think of a better way to enjoy your holiday? Say goodbye to stress. Refreshing your body and your mind is easy on a Tunisian holiday at a hotel with spa. Try a massage or a body treatment, let the water replenish your senses with our moisturising treatment, and relax every one of your pores with a Turkish bath. Experience Tunisian culture. Attend a Tunisian dance show, try shisha, or put yourself in the shoes of Lawrence of Arabia by crossing sand dunes on camelback. In this Djerba hotel, there’s no excuse for not getting swept up by the country’s culture! A constant adventure for the children. The Miniclub is a tailor-made space for them. Here, they can meet new friends, dress up as pirates, play water games, or try their hands at minigolf. And to cool off, they have a pool with a slide shaped like a camel! ... more less
