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.

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.

Fantastic holiday to Marhaba Hotel, indoors and outdoors so tidy and super clean, pool area lively and entertainers are amazing always giving every the option to do something during the day and evening entertainment is ace.

Perfect relaxing family holiday at Hotel Marhaba Sousse.
We are a family with an 8 yr old and 15 yr old and this was our second time to hotel Marhaba.
The hotel is very clean the staff are lovely and look after you well.
If your after a perfect relaxing family holiday with the beach right on your door step I recommend this hotel.
Food is excellent and pool is clean and so are all the hotel grounds. You can also use the hotels next door for drinks or the pools.
We are looking forward to go back in 2014 to see our friends we have made there.

I have just returned from a weeks stay in this hotel and I have to say I was very disappointed with the condition of the room, it was old and tired and definitely needed refurbished the socket was being held in with selotape there was holes in the curtains and bedspreads. The room was clean enough just shabby. The food was ok but not great, if you didn`t tip the pool man you struggled to get a sunbed at the pool, having said that people were going to the pool at 6o`clock in the morning and putting their towels on the beds. I guess you get what you pay for but this hotel struggles to be a 3 star. Also it doesn`t tell you there are a lot of steps plus it is downhill to the pool and beach so it is a climb back up to hotel.

The reception area of the Marhaba Hotel is lovely clean and bright with an outside balcony, check in getting safe keys and exchanging money took about 5 minutes excellent service.
The all inclusive menus was okay always find something but as usual A I that you find in most hotels, dinning room clean white being the dominant colour, I did think one of the chefs that cooked the omelettes in the morning needed to change his uniform it looked a bit grubby.
The beach was lovely soft sand, the sea had big waves most of the time and you are limited to how far you can swim out because of the water sports near by. Water sports included banana boats para gliding, jet skis all to be paid for.
Snacks available on the beach from about 12 30 pm till 5 pm ish.
The Marhaba beach has its own pool and this is where the entertainment takes place during the day and evening you can also use the pool at the Marhaba club which is much quieter you can also have snacks and drinks at this pool.
There is a large indoor pool which is very pleasant also gym and you can have, sauna, facials massages at reasonable cost.
There is also another hotel in the grounds the Marhaba Beach which I believe is a 5 star hotel some people say you can use facilities others say you cannot I was told I could not use a sunbed there.
This was my first time to Tunisia, I enjoyed it but think I would try another hotel but this is fine if you can get a good price.
The road outside the hotel is extremely busy with traffic, taxis are cheap but I used the noddy train that stops when you request it too fun and you see more.
The airport is clean and tidy and the transfer took about 30 to 45 minutes but this depends on how many hotels it stops out before yours.
