Just came back from a week's break with a girl friend. Got the holiday on an all inclusive package deal. Flew into Tunis airport which was a 3 hour transfer although the flight itself was only 2.5 hours which isn't bad at all. If we go back, we'd try to fly into the nearby airports.
The hotel is very big, decor is traditional but grand. The room we were in had a double bed and 2 singles. It could do with a bit of updating to be honest. The mattress and pillows weren't very comfortable but at least functional and air con too which is a bonus especially with the 35 degree heat! The hair dryer was pathetic so bring your own or expect to have damp hair throughout the holiday!
The food was pretty varied although I can imagine it being a little boring if you are there longer than a week. We loved the soups at dinner time, very tasty. The snack bar near the pool is a good alternative if you don't want a big meal at lunch as they serve drinks, pizzas, chips and kebab sandwiches until about 5pm. The ice cream hut is open pretty much all day which is great to keep cool throughout the day. The swim up pool bar is really cool with waterfalls and very well located although sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes to be served if you are on the other side of the bar.
The beach is just through the gates behind the pool. It's a long beach with lovely soft sand. Lots of hustle and bustle with lots of people offering water sports, paraglide trips and selling souvenirs at a pretty reasonable price. There are snack bars along the beach which looked like reasonable prices too.
The pool is very big with lots of shallow parts for relaxing in and for children. Lots of sunbeds; we had no problem finding somewhere to go.
The animation team works so hard every day entertaining guests. Starting from around 10am there are activities throughout the day such as water polo, darts, aqua gym, archery etc and they put on a show every evening too. The team are all very friendly, always chatting to guests and encouraging you to get involved. Although my friend and I were often glued to our sunbeds which I think they just gave up on asking us in the end!!
There's not much outside of the hotel unless you traveled 30-45 minutes out into the next big town Seus. The close by Mahdia town itself has a couple of bars/snack cafes and shops but nothing major. There are a few shops, supermarkets near the hotel though for picking up souvenirs.
We and another couple were the only English people at the hotel. The hotel was dominated by Germans for the week we were there. Although the animation team do speak good level of English so there's no problem there. You may struggle a little with the restaurant waiters although we got by.
The hotel has its own disco which opens at midnight after the all inclusive service ends. At weekends, it's very busy with people visiting from outside of the hotel; although during the week, it's much quieter as not many hotel guests go there. Perhaps the hotel could offer guests discounted drinks to encourage more people to go.
Overall it was a great relaxing holiday as that's what we were looking forward to. Lots of sun, friendly people. Very enjoyable! Thank you Mahdia Beach :-)
