Holiday Village Manar

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.

The best Holiday ever!

We first went to this village in July 2003 and had such a fabulous time we are now on our 3rd visit. The staff are fabulous and the Hotel is excellent. We would recommend this place to anyone. Can't wait till July when we'll be here again!More

Not what I expected

Stayed here late October 2014 (end of season) staff superb, first choice entertainers great, food ok but drink very poor (both alcoholic and non alcoholic). Invasion of fly's around the pool and outside the restaurants during the day and the sun has gone by 4.30pm. Would not go back to tunisia or a holiday village ever again.More

Best family holiday ever!

This is a very belated review as we travelled in June 14 but wanted to share just what a great time we had here. The hotel is beautiful, the grounds are very well kept and spotlessly clean. we were originally put in manar 1 (the main block) which was comfortable and clean but we missed having a balcony to dry towels etc so they gave us a completely free upgrade to a family suite in manar 2, this room was amazing, so much space and we had a balcony with a beautiful view over the beach. Perfect. On arrival at enfidha airport we realised that one of our suitcases had gone missing (second time this has happened to us on a Thompson flight!!) the airport staff were next to useless, so we got on our bus hoping that the first choice staff at the hotel would be able to sort it. What a joke, the 4 young girls who were supposed to be the holiday reps were awful. They done nothing until we chased them up each day then all of a sudden they were "just about to ring up about that..." What a joke. After 5 days we were so fed up that we spoke to the amazing reception staff about it who were so helpful, it was sorted within the day and we were reunited with our clothes, although due to Tunisian rules we had to waste half a day going back to the airport to pick it up. One lady on reception was especially good, can't quite remember her name (possibly Magdalena??) she went above and beyond for us. After the drama of the suitcase we could finally relax 6 days in to our 2 week stay. Food was great, lots of variety, children's selection was the only thing that could be improved, although the quality was good it did seem to be very repetitive for kids. The desserts were to die for! Swimming pools were very clean and there are so many that none of them ever seems particularly busy. We enjoyed the daily quiz and dance routines by the main pool each day. The evening entertainment was s bit ropey but as frequent holiday village guests this was what we expected lol. Outside of the complex wasn't great , quite dirty and when I was waiting outside the local pharmacy for my husband, I got a lot of catcalls and shouts from a group of local lads walking past, I wouldn't recommend any women going out alone. We went on a day trip to the zoo but didn't want to pay the expensive first choice excursion so the reception called us a local taxi which was great, large 7 seater vehicle with air con etc. the taxi driver was lovely, he drove us there, waited while we walked around and drove us home giving us a tour of the local area and the medina, all for a very very reasonable price. Fantastic family holiday and we have already booked for June 2015 :) More


Great staff, tired hotel

First off, not 5-star. Probably a half decent 4 star at best. The staff are what make this hotel stand out. Food was fine, not fantastic, but a decent choice each night. Probably repeats every 3 or 4 days. The curry house is just part of the restaurant, I wouldn't bother. The pools are great, but the walkways are not great for kids, ours managed with those waterproof shoe things. The kids loved the water chutes etc, but mixed rules on age limits - it should be down to whether the kids can swim or not. The room was nice, but as usual with Holiday Village, the AC didn't go down very far. The beach, is fantastic, a real asset. Tunisia on the whole was not a great place, everything about the country made us not want to come back.The Enfidha airport is a dump but looks fantastic from the outside! The currency issues were a farce, plus hotels can't even give you cash over the counter - plus we were advised not to leave the hotel grounds, but told that the cash pount was 500 yards down the street! Nice hotel, but won't be back.More
