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.

Friendly staff, excellent food, comfortable rooms

Clean comfortable Hotel. Wide selection of food, always tasty. All staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. Plenty of sunbeds available in the Hotel grounds although I think more could be available on the beach. During one day we spent on the beach from 11:00 to 15:00 and 3 sunbeds were 'reserved' all that time with no one occupying them.More

Holiday Village Manar

Just returned after our 3rd year at this hotel. I can not find a single thing to moan about. The hotel has just been refurbished and looks really great and everything is really clean. The food is very good they certainly cater for every taste. They even cater for children with nuggets, sausages, pizza and chips, whilst providing a wide choice for the adults. The staff were again fantastic and could not do enough for you. Our grandson has autism and the guys in the kids club were amazing with him. I have recommended this hotel to friends and family. Look forward to going back againMore

Suzieb52,

First choice!? Last Choice. They are lying to you.

Do not book this hotel. We have just returned from a big family holiday, duped by the brochures and 5* description. What a con. I could write an essay about how this hotel is NOT 5* but I will draw out the main points. The staff are shocking. The waiters forget to bring cutlery, they don't wipe tables, they forget drinks. The location is slightly more up market than Baghdad. The food is a real mixed bag and gives you the you know whats. Then the drinks. Oh the drinks. This was the real giveaway that this place is terrible. Plastic cups. Fruit juice being passed off as cordial. Seriously in a British tour operator affiliated "5*" hotel. The choice of cocktails and spirits was awful. Beer watered down. Just terrible. I went up to the bar on my first night, bearing in mind I've visited several all inclusives now, excited to have arrived, asked for a mojito and they didn't even know what one was. Then when I explained pointed me to a list of about 5 cocktails I was allowed to choose which had clearly been created by a 7 year old. All taste of battery fluid because of the disgusting syrupy juice they serve! It is save to say my impression of Tunisia and First Choice is last choice in the future.More
