Club Magic Life Penelope Beach Imperial


This beachfront hotel sprawls across several acres and packs in tons of pools, activities and restaurants.

There are 4 pools to pick from at this hotel – including an aqua park with chutes and slides for little ones. And the activities line-up is hard to beat, ticking off an archery target range and beach volleyball.

The village-style complex is right on a white-sand beach and its low-rise buildings cover several acres, so the whole place has a roomy, peaceful feel to it.

As expected from Club Magic Life ...

As I came to expect from the Club Magic Life hotels: Good food, plenty of entertainment, lovely weather (sunny but not too warm), everyday a nice breeze for cat sailing, relaxing experience, just what I needed.More

Dirk V,

Just back from a fantastic holiday. Hotel team could not have done more . From the time we arrived to the time we left they did everything they could to ensure you had the best time ever. Hotel was spotless. Food variety great .rooms comfortable. Will defiantly recommend this hotel and will be returning ourselves.More

Elaine E,

great hotel

Stayed at this hotel from 23rd July to 6th August. This is a lovely hotel. I completed the online check in process before I went which meant as soon as we arrived we were able to collect our keys and go straight to our room. My mum was travelling with us and I had requested two rooms next to each other which was granted. I also asked for a kettle and tea and coffee facilities in her room which arrived within minutes of being in the room. There are 3 things that really stood out for me. The food, the staff and the sunbeds. All the staff from the gardeners to the cleaners to the waiters to the entertainment staff are absolutely fabulous. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. You can often see the manager walking around checking everything and checking everyone was happy. Another thing I really liked is that you do not have to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve sunbeds which means you can hand your towels in every night and collect new ones the next morning. We used to go to breakfast around 8.30 and then collect our fresh towels around 9am and always found 4 sunbeds round the activity pool. A couple of the afternoons we went to the water park pool and also found sunbeds. The sunbeds are the most comfortable sunbeds ever as you get a big mattress to put on top of them. Most afternoons we went to the beach and there were plenty of free sunbeds there to. We usually sat to the left as there was more water sport activity going on to the right and camel and horse rides. Yes there is seaweed sometimes. The Hotel is very environmentally friendly so they have a policy not to clear it. They say it’s part of the beach. It’s not a problem though. We only found there to be seaweed when the sea was very calm. On the days there were waves which was most days it seemed to get washed away. The beach is white sand and the sea it lovely and warm. I thought the food was excellent. I usually get a little bored of the food in the 2nd week in All Inclusive but not this place. They have a different theme night every night and all the food is relevant to the theme. Even the dining hall is decorated to the theme and all the waiters wear outfits applicable to the theme. We tipped our waiter a £1 every night and every night he saved us the same table and our wine and water was ready waiting on the table. We did try the Thai Al ACarte and that was really nice too. There is a snack bar by the water park. We only ate there once. The food seems quite limited there. Also at the bear bar you can get toasted sandwiches. My daughter like the Nutella toasted sandwiches. The pool bar around the activity pool serves cakes and pancakes in the afternoon. I did feel that they needed more bar staff at this bar in the day. The Entertainment staff do an excellent job and it’s up to you how involved you get. They all speak really good English. I used to join in with Water gym with Marcelo. Marcelo was really great with all ages. My daughter went to kids club a couple of times and at 11am each day they take them to the beach for a ride on the banana boat for free. It’s very well organised as I went to watch one day. They also do a free family banana ride at 2pm every day. We watched couple of the shows and they seemed very good. They also had the usual foam party and beach party some evenings. The layout of the hotel is a lot bigger than I expected. The pools are all separated. Because of this I would say the hotel is suited to families with slightly older children who you feel comfortable letting go off. Usually if my daughter wants to go on the water slides we just keep an eye on her from the main pool or where we are sat but each of the pool areas are quite separate. You have the activity pool, then a few minutes’ walk to the relax pool and then a few minutes’ walk to the pool with water slides and then lastly the beach. All the bungalows are dotted around the complex. We had rooms in the main hotel. The rooms were adequate but the air conditioning was quite poor. We obtained an extra key card from reception and left that in all day but it did not seemed to make any difference. I also found the air conditioning in the main restaurant a little poor. Safe in the room was free and big enough to store an ipad etc. If you like going for a walk out of the hotel at night this is not really the place for you. There are only around 4 or 5 shops outside the hotel. If you head towards the beach and go left there is one shop. If you go right there are around 4 shops and a couple of bars. If you go out of the front of the hotel and go left and left again there are a couple of shops but to be honest they all sell exactly the same stuff. We also went to the souk but they sold exactly the same stuff as the shops with similar prices. Once you have been in one shop you have been in them all. Most of the shops are open until around 10pm. Toiletries are very expensive so make sure you buy enough in the UK. We went to the Crocodile Farm. We got a taxi there for around 5 dirhams. Feeding time is 5pm. We travelled with Thomson/First Choice and found the rep to be useless. Went to welcome meeting nd he just talked about himself. I asked him what time the shops outside hotel were open until and he didn’t seem to know. Suggested they shut around 5pm. Also advised on last day that you could not change money back into English at the hotel. You had to do this at the airport and needed orginal receipt. The rate is not good either so I suggest you just change money as and when you need it. Would have been good to know this at the start of our holiday at the welcome meeting. If you need to know anything about the area or the hotel ask the guest relation lady (Latifia) next to reception. She is excellent and will help you with anything. She is a credit to the hotel and speaks good English. So overall a lovely hotel. I probably would not go back for a few years as it is a small island so once you have seen it you have seen it. I would however be happy to recommend this hotel and I will be looking to try out other Magic Life Hotels around the world as I was impressed with the standard.More


Best Holiday Ever!

Just back from 2 weeks at this fantastic hotel which I would highly recommend. The transfer from the Airport is only 35 minutes which is great when you are travelling with a young family and the reception from hotel staff on arrival is very friendly with check-in being dealt with quickly and efficiently. What this hotel has to offer is amazing - its very clean (with staff constantly maintaining throughout the day), the accommodation is modern and spacious (we stayed in a superior bungalow which was more than big enough for a family of 4), the food was amazing with so much to offer throughout the day and evening and the entertainment team were fantastic. The activities programme that this hotel offers is the best I've known from the activities that are held every day by the pools (except Mondays when they have a well-earned rest!) to the water sports on the beach. There is something on offer for everyone and there is no pressure for you to take part. They work extremely hard to ensure that everyone is enjoying themselves and having a good time and the shows that they put on in the amphitheatre of an evening are amazing. I must also comment on the childrens clubs which we found to be great. Both of my children (age 6 and 11) enjoyed the activities that they took part in and both wished that they'd spent more time at the clubs and participated more but with so much on offer its hard to fit it all in. This is one holiday where 2 weeks just wasn't enough and which I would highly recommend.More

Great Hotel shame about beach and German favoritism

Well I thought Djerba would be a great holiday,a three hour flight gets you 35/39 degree heat which is fantastic,I could not fault the hotel,great staff,very welcoming waiters making sure you got a table,give them ten dinars and they will be your their best friend for the rest of your holiday,good food,make sure you choose one of the restaurants one a week that are on offer Mai tai is good,the waterpark within hotel grounds is great fun,then when you arrive at family pool for games is when it goes downhill,German reps, mostly German language,then French then English last on explaining games to holidayers,most staff speak German,French and English but when your on the beach trying to buy off looky looky men they no understand English! Only German and French! Now let's get to the beach experience....don't try to lay on beach as you will get run over either by locals giving horse rides or camel rides then you'll get accosted by locals wanting you to buy their stuff, from the beach sun beds to the water you cannot have young children playing as they will get injured by one the rides as there is no room to build sand castles or play in sand. Saved till last is the horror of airport to hotel view from coach,imagine everyone going out side and swinging their dustbin bags over their heads until it split and goes everywhere,well there is rubbish all over the place absolutely disgusting this put me off going to Tunisia ever again,but at least the hotel was clean!More
