Huge pools, a waterpark, and a white-sand beach on the doorstep – this all-action family hotel has plenty to keep you busy.
This place has a first-class setting – right next door to a white-sand beach. Location aside, the big pull is the pool scene. There’s one for activities, another for relaxing, plus a waterpark with slides.
The hotel's a Holiday Village between April and October, so there’s a bumper line-up of activities – think sports like tennis and football, and extras like an Aerial Adventure course, and non-stop kids’ clubs.

Just returned from a fabulous week of sunshine at the Holiday Village Manar. The weather was perfect, 30'C most days, the food was lovely and the hotel offered everything we needed for a perfect family break. I would happily book again. The staff are very kind and helpful and although it is not expected, if you give a few dinar tips you get some nice extras like a pre-laid out table for your evening meal with all your favourite drinks, your mini bar stocked up and the good sun loungers. Our favourite pool was Momo's pool! (We love you too!) and the football academy was excellent. This did cost a bit extra but worth it if you have a kid who just wants to play football all the time!! The beach is fantastic and has it's own bar. It is just a 3-4 min walk from the main hotel block. We booked a family themed room but I wouldn't do that again as we didn't gain much and lost out in not having a balcony, if nothing else but for drying our towels and swimwear. We didn't bother much with the evening entertainment but went into the venue one evening and it had a funny damp pong - not sure why! The reps were always buzzing around so, although we didn't need them for much, they were always available. All in all, delighted with the holiday, the hotel, the staff and the food on offer. We would definitely book to go back! More
Bought 5 star got a two star room
Booked on line through First Choice - won't do that again! Excellent service but only two star at best, FC miss sell it based on facilities that no doubt we're once 5 star but are way past their best now. Very unhappy with my room and politely asked the rep for assistance only to be ignored, should have shouted and used offensive language. Hotel offered me an alternative room but it too was below standard.More
Fantastic staff, facilities and food.
9 of us visited the holiday village Manar (5 adults and 4 children 10, 8, 3 and 3) and all had a fabulous time. All the staff in reception, bars and restaurants were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The first choice entertainment team were fabulous with all the children (and adults) and could not have been more welcoming to my daughter with special needs. The restaurant actually had a veggie corner. Although as there was so much choice at all the food stations I, for the first time on holiday, was faced with the difficult task of having to choose! My carnivorous husband and children also had lots of meat choices. There was a kids corner through the back and a barbecue section outside which could be missed but shouldn't be. The hotel was scrupulously clean and beautifully designed with large bedrooms. Facilties and activities were plentiful and varied and the beach was great. We would love to return and would highly recommend it to anyone. More

Brilliant Holiday :-)
We stayed at the Holiday Village Manar for 1 week from 05/10/14. We had an excellent time as expected + wouldnt fault anything. I had sent a room request before we went which we got. We had 2 ground floor rooms in manar 2. The rooms are massive. We had a living area + seperate bedroom, toilet + shower room. The balcony was also a great size with a table, chairs + our own sunbeds. We had tea + coffee making facilities + a mini fridge with milk + water which is restocked when needed. The air conditioning was also great. We spent most of our days at the activity pool with the swim up bar. There is music + activities on all day. And a poolside quiz. We also spent a few days at the beach which is lovely. The sea is great + much hotter than the pools! We had a go on the inflatable couch which was a great laugh! Once the sun went down we went to the spa to use the indoor pool + jaccuzis which are free + we used the steam room which was 20 TND. We had lunch at both the snack bar which serves pizza, burgers, hotdogs, chips, pasta etc + in the buffet restaurant which has much more choice. We didnt use any of the a la carte restaurants. The dinner in the buffet restaurant was great. Loads of choice. And the outside bbq was great too. We went to the lobby bar + cocktail bar after dinner each night. The bar men are great. We had a good laugh with them. They are so friendly + are constantly cleaning your table + bringing drinks. Special mention to Feisel :-) The Peter Kay tribute act was brilliant. We had a good chat with him after the show too! That was the only entertainment we went to as we preferred to chill in the lobby bar + listen to the singer. Then there was a late night quiz which we were shocking at! We didnt want to leave Holiday Village Manar! And a week definitely wasnt long enough. We love the holiday villages in general, thats all we go to now as they have everything we are looking for :-) More
good 4 star
Stayed here first week in October for a week and was very happy with what we found.Very clean hotel and rooms and the staff are a credit to the hotel as always had time to say hello or help out.Excellent pools and very clean and also good to see quiet pools away from activities and yes MoMo was great help always friendly with kids.Beach was clean and very safe with decent showers and toilets which like the others on site were very clean which is always a worry when away.Slides well maintained and safe for kids use which they did . Food was ok for all inclusive but was poor for kids,selection at most times always seemed to be the same ie burgers or pizza or spaghetti so was a bit repetitive.The themed nights in the restauant were ok nothing special and as stated already the food could do with more flavour.There was plenty of it and always hot but it just lacked the flavour hit sometimes.We visited the a la carte Tunisian restaurant and was very very disappointed by the standard of food,it was far better in the main restaurant. The kids club was a credit to the hotel and the staff that worked there and they should be applauded.Very safety orientated ie signing kids in and out and also with registration in the first .Very good activities for them. Overall a very good holiday in a very nice hotel and grounds and if there was any gripe it would be the flavour of the food and the lack of snacks once the restaurant had closed as it would have been nice to get something later on after 10pm. Some parts could do with updating such as the snack area outside a bit scruffy and worn but overall very nice hotel which was helped by the staff and there friendly way and nothing was too much trouble.More
