Fab Value for Money
Having read some mixed reviews we decided to go with an open mind and to expect basic (being hotel snobs!) but we were pleasantly surprised! The food was always of high quality, if you wanted to eat pasta or pizza every meal you could but there were traditional dishes most evenings and you could easily eat a different meal each day. Bearing in mind the hotel is a 3star we thought the food was excellent quality.
Our room was basic and could have done with a lick of paint, but it is the first hotel room my husband has never complained about and has asked to move from so that alone is saying something!
The entertainment programme was good, and the kids enjoyed the club. Our aim for the holiday was to relax so we didn't take part in much but you could have been kept busy if that is your thing. If you like people watching you are definately coming to the right place!
All staff were very friendly and helpful and I could see the hotel being a 4 star when the rooms have been upgraded.
My 10 year old daugheter had her first massage at the spa and they were very considerate to her age (we went in together). The hairdressers (at the Beach hotel) is very good too.

For those who wish to relax and do nothing!
This is a very nice hotel, very clean, and when we were there, very spacious. The accomodation, food, service and the surroundings were all excellent value for money. The staff couldn't do enough for you and if you like any activities, the animation team go the extra mile to encourage you. We didn't take in the night time activities in the Neptune Bar, but did speak to other guests who were enthusiasic about it. The pool area is big and a really nice place to be, relax and catch the sun. Lots of sunbeds available. The restaurant had a wide variety of foods available including some Tunisian specialities well worth trying out. It would be very hard not to find something to like every night. As for going and exploring outside the complex - Normally we would not bother with the Reps Welcome Party or read the local information book. But in this case we strongly recommend that you DO make the effort to go. Get some local info and know how BEFORE you venture out, particularly if you have children of any age. Most Tunisians are polite, very friendly, hospitable and welcoming. But as soon as you step out of the complex, any inexperience will be exploited. You will get hastle of one sort or another everywhere. Our advice for what its worth is to be very careful, politely decline and walk away from any 'free' offer, and steer clear of anyone who tells you or claims they work at your hotel.

Good time in Tunisia
I really enjoyed my stay in Tunisia, Hotel Marhaba over Xmas and NYE.
The hotel and environment was really friendly, big THANK YOU to the Entertainment Team (the boys worked so hard every day, putting smile on my face everyday).
The only thing I could complain about was the reception- not really friendly.

Fantastic holiday in Tunisia yet again
I have stayed at the Hotel Mahaba on arounds 8 or 9 times and I have never been dissapointed. The food is always great and plenty for all. I last visited this hotel in November 2013 and will be returning with four friends in July.
For anyone to complain about this hotel must be either very very particular or just a moaner. I cannot Waite to get back and have a fool around with the Annimation Team they work so hard and make you feel Speciel.
