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.

SPLENDID FORTNIGHT !!
Spent 2 weeks here in June, it was fab. The food was very good n CAKES to die for, excellent variety at every sitting. My son is 12, felt he,d outgrown the kids clubs n Escape didn't,t really exist, they wouldn't,t do 1 to 1, expected him to go to the club for younger children, which didn't got down to well. The girl in the football academy, was outstanding with my son, encouraged him to join in all the matches etc. I felt there should be a slightly older rep, more mature attitude. Overall they did a very good job. My room was spotless, n nothing was too much trouble for the maid, totally excellent. I felt you got a better service off the bar staff if you where about 25ish, rather large on top with blonde hair or if you tipped !! In fact the whole of the staff, from life guard to bar staff give you a better service if you tip !! I personally tip at end of holiday, maybe it's a new thing. I think we have outgrown the holiday villages, if my son was younger I would Deff got back, I will got back to Tunisia, totally loved the place. ðMore

Wonderful Hotel - amazing staff
We had a 7 night stay (myself, husband and 3year old daughter) in the Holiday Village Manar. Having stayed in another resort of this type last year which wasn't the best experience, I must admit, I wasn't too sure what to expect. Apon arrival (11pm), we were greated by the hotel manager with drinks and the easiest check in I have ever had at any hotel. We were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving at the hotel. I was very impressed with the size of our room which contained a bunk bed 'den' area (with own tv), seperate toilet and bathroom facilites and a king bed. The only disapointment with the room was no balcony so drying towels and swimwear wasn't the best. There was a wide choice of fresh food to choose from at breakfast lunch and dinner. If you are unable to find something to eat then you must be the pickest eater going! Entertainment on site was varied and how much or how little you participate is down to you. The kids all loved the early eve entertainment 'Widgets Workshop' and the 'Live and Loud' show. We didn't stay for the later shows purely as our little one was ready for bed by that point! The grounds of the hotel are kept beautifully - every staff member greats you with a hello and a smile - really the friendliest staff I've ever come across, nothing is too much trouble! With the shocking news of last week's shootings, I must admit, I did initiatlly rule out returning, however after thinking about it, I really would go back... The attack could have happened anywhere in the world (and they have). We felt completely safe at the resort, and the airport security was also very high (you have to go through x-ray BEFORE getting into the airport)More

We arrived here on the 21st of June having never been to Tunisia and not knowing what to expect and I have to say I could not fault this place the country, the hotel, the staff all fan-dabby-dozie! We have been to a lot of all inclusive holidays and this was by far the best food my husband is a very picky eater and he even said how fab it was especially the BBQ outside each evening! The place was clean, all the staff went above and beyond to make our stay brilliant one waiter would pick us fresh flowers to have at our table they all interacted brilliantly with my son! We didn't do the kids club as we went to spend time together so can't comment on that but heard great reviews from other families! Lovely selection of clean fun pools! Take negative reviews with a pinch of salt some people love to moan for the sake of moaning! Smashing time had by us! ;)More

Really sad times.
I am writing this review with a very heavy heart. We arrived at this fabulous hotel last Thursday night. We spent the following morning on what I would probably describe as the most beautiful beach I have ever been on. We left the beach at midday, the same time as the the terrible events happened down the coast. We spent the next 2 days with 2 very scared kids until we managed to get an emergency flight out. What I really want to emphasise is that the staff at this hotel are incredible, they are truly a credit to Tunisia. Nothing was ever to much trouble, everyone was so polite and it's such a shame that their lively hood is now uncertain. I can't really explain how much we loved our short time here. More
