Hotel Marhaba Beach

This Moorish-inspired hotel has a couple of pools to lounge by and a white-sand beach just steps away.

The Marhaba Beach is in a great spot, right near the beach. The centre of Sousse isn't far, either – it's about 10 minutes' drive away.

The oasis-like gardens are home to 2 pools and 8 tennis courts. They border right on to the beach where you’ll find plenty of watersports on offer, from pedalos to jet-skis.

'William' Amazing Holiday

I travelled to Tunisia on my own for 10 nights on 12th October 2014, I picked the Marhaba Beach Hotel as I've stayed there before so I knew I'd be ok on my own. The hotel is clean, my room was lovely, it has a beautiful private beach. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and service is good. Sometimes I couldn't taste the vodka in my drink but thats fine I just had a few more vodkas to make up for it. :) The best thing about the hotel is the animation team, they were so much better than the animation team that were at the hotel last year (that doesn't include Tiga of course). They made my days there fun and enjoyable. The number one animation team guy for me is William, he looked after me from the moment I arrived at the hotel. If I needed anything he was always there for me, a couple of times I needed to leave the hotel to visit the bank and he came with me to make sure I was safe. I was very well looked after, he introduced me to many people. Even though I went on holiday on my own I was never on my own. He touched my heart, Thank you William. Jimmy is a lovely guy, very kind, he's so calm and the most chilled out guy I've ever met, he was very patient with me whilst playing table tennis as I was definately rubbish at the beginning. Lovely Tiga is the best DJ in North Africa that's for sure, he knows his stuff and looks great in a dress ;) Thank you for my CD, I'm going to practice the dances before I come back next year. Then there's Sam, good fun guy. I played French Boules twice a day mainly with Sam and sometimes Jimmy, very competitive but fun. I even won a couple of games of 'French Boules'. Sam will never admit it though :) Sofien is the 5th member of the team, he wasn't around much when I was there but what I did see of him he was a nice guy. My friends were worried about me going to Tunisia on my own, there was no need because I had a lovely holiday at Marhaba Beach. I left Marhaba Beach Hotel yesterday which was very emotional, I had the best time because of William and the rest of the animation team. xxxxMore

Great place

My wife and I have just got back from this hotel, we stayed a week and loved it. We had a warm welcome on arrival from the reception , and although our room was not ready we could get something to eat and drink. The room was great and we had a a wonderful view overlooking the pool and sea. All the staff were very friendly from the porter,maids,bar staff, waiter and of course the animation team. This was our 3rd time to Tunisia and our 3rd hotel, this was the smallest but was well worth the money. We spent most of our time down on the beach as there is a beach bar and restaurant. The food is good and had a great choice to choose from. I think I over did it with the deserts! The hotel is a bit dated as built in the early 80's , but it is kept clean and tidy. All the staff work hard and long hours, so a little tip gos a long way. Overall had a wonderful time and we were sad to leave as was a great place to relax.More


One to remember

As mine and my boyfriends first holiday in five years, we were so disappointed to have to leave. The two weeks was absolutely fantastic with a beautiful hotel, clean room, friendly staff and lovely surroundings. As first timers visiting Tunisia, we hadn't really heard much about it but we are so glad we went, telling all family and friends about our stay at Marhaba Beach. We especially want to give a massive praise to the Animation team, who are so welcoming, hard working and friendly. We grew very close to them and they deserve a lot of credit for all their hard work and effort they put in day in and day out, always smiling and laughing with us! Will definitely be returning !!More

Great & wonderful Holiday

Just got back from tunisia & I'm really sad about being back. The marhaba beach is one of the best hotels i visit in tunisia. Stayed 6 times in tunisia and the first time in this hotel. Its a very cleaned hotel and the staff is always friendly and polite. The animation team is brilliant. They made the stay there really special. :-) Espescially Jimmy is one of the best. Hope he will even work there the next time i will stay in Marhaba beach. I will definitely come back!More

Home away from home

I have recently returned from my fourth stay at the Marhaba Beach hotel, and it’s getting better every time. Many things have stayed the same from the first time I was a guest, however many aspects of the hotel have changed. I stayed in October 2014, from 1st to the 12th, and it is safe to say I loved almost every minute of my stay. I travelled with my mum and older sister. Myself and my mother travelled on Wednesday 1st and my sister joined us on the Sunday 5th. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed with open arms back into the Marhaba Beach family. We were treated to cocktails on arrival and all the staff members rushed over to greet us again. We always stay in the same suite, room 252. This suite is perfect for 3 women, as it is spacious and we each have our own areas. My sister and I share one room, and my mother then has her own. The room is modern and has a double balcony. The bathroom is big and fully equipped. The wonderful thing about Marhaba Beach is the family atmosphere. This is thanks to the staff, each member of staff remembers you from the first time. The animation team had two new members, Jimmy and Sophien/Katya. Both boys are lovely and a good addition to the already fantastic team! The heart of the hotel is the Animation team! A team of six hardworking men! As we have stayed before we already knew most of the team. Mustapha is the team leader and under him five fantastic animators; Tiga, Sam, William, Sophien and Katya. I am rather biased as I have my favourites. As we are friends with the Animation team, Sam and William came with me to collect my sister from the airport after they finished work on the Sunday night. She was surprised and happy to see both the boys and myself. Unfortunately on the Tuesday, my sister took very sick. She got bit by a mosquito and took a severe allergic reaction to it. The outdoor bar staff were fantastic in getting her ice and moving furniture to make sure she had the foot elevated. The foot got worse and we had no other option but to call the hotel doctor, (this is where I lost faith in humanity). The Doctor Never in my life have I met such a pompous jerk! The rudest man I have ever encountered. My sister had to receive two lots of two injections in the room, one set on Tuesday and another on Wednesday morning. On both occasions he used the same needle twice, and he left the medicine vials and needles behind him in our hotel room, leaving the mess for either the cleaning staff or us to clean. Trying not to touch the equipment, I got it all into a bag, and tied it in a knot. The second lot of injections, left my sister in excoriating pain, the doctor said ‘Never in my 32 years has this happened me. I inject myself, I inject little babies, and I looked after football teams.’ This was of no comfort to us. To cut a long story short he told us to go to the restaurant and get her something to eat. My mother left with the doctor to go to the pharmacy. My sister and I went to the restaurant. We met our mother and they walked in together, I was ahead of them. In short, my sister collapsed at least 20 times in the restaurant. I demanded we get her to the hospital, but as hotel procedure the doctor was to be called first. He told us that she was panicking and that her blood pressure was low (after checking it 3 times in the room, saying it was normal). He then told us that he said she wasn’t to leave the room, another lie. I was losing my patience with the Doctor, and just wanted to get my sister to the hospital. We were informed by management that it would cost £40 for the ambulance to bring her to the clinic, a 1 mile journey. They told us that it would be cheaper (£1.50) and quicker to get her in a taxi. We said that would be great. The doctor insisted that he take us for free in his car. We agreed to this. This all happened over the space of 70 minutes. Throughout this time, Mustapha and Sam didn’t leave our sides. They were lifting my sister when she collapsed, moving her from room to room and translating anything the doctor said to us. Sam came with us to the Clinic in the doctors car. My sister collapsed getting out of the car; Sam carried her in, in his arms. The Doctor soon disappeared, much to our happiness. My sister was in the ‘Clinic Les Olivier’s’ for two days. Throughout this time, the hotel staff were amazing. Mustapha This man is fantastic. He ensured that whatever we needed, we had. Along with the hotel Director, Mustapha made our tough time during the holiday a lot easier. He is an absolute gentleman. He made sure that we were never without a translator when we needed one. He brought my sister a beautiful bouquet of 14 roses to the hospital the night she was admitted and stayed with her for a couple of hours. Sam Sam was our backbone this holiday; we couldn’t have managed without him at all! He is the single most caring individual I have ever met. He went above and beyond for my family this holiday, racking up an average of 24 hours in the hospital with us. Without Sam, we would have missed our flight and my sister would have never recieved the proper care in the Clinic. To us, Sam isn’t just someone we met on holiday, he’s family! William William, or Dr Achraf as I call him, is an absolute babe! He is such a gentleman. While my sister was in hospital, William gave up his own time on his day off to visit my sister in hospital and helped us with her discharge papers. Along with Badji Haji Ali, William’s visit lifted the mood on a very low day. William made the holiday for me, as he took me to a traditional Tunisian Wedding. The experience was one I will never forget. He is an asset to the hotel! Tiga Tiga is my wee babe! Such a genuinely nice, happy fella! He is the best DJ I know! The hotel wouldn’t be the same without him. He was there for me when I was worrying about my sister, and he managed to keep me calm! Haythem and Atef Haythem was our regular barman at night. He is such a good person, with the most beautiful daughter. He also went to visit my sister in hospital. We will never forget him. Atef was our waiter in the restaurant, as he is every time. He is like our little brother! Such a character and gent. AFTER MY SISTER WAS OUT OF HOSPITAL, THE DOCTOR TRIED TO CHARGE US £70 MORE FOR TAKING US 1 MILE IN HIS CAR. THIS WAS AN OUTRAGE! HE ALSO GAVE US THE MEDICAL REPORT IN FRENCH. EVEN THE HOTEL MANAGEMENT WERE OUTRAGED BY THIS! AS I AM THE FEISTY ONE OF THE THREE, IT WAS UP TO ME TO DEAL WITH THE DOCTOR. HE KEPT SAYING THAT EVERYTHING WAS MY SISTERS FAULT, BECAUSE SHE PANICKED, EVEN THOUGH THE CLINIC DOCTORS TOLD US THAT HE WAS COMPLETELY WRONG. AFTER ALMOST TWO HOURS WITH THE DOCTOR ON MY OWN, I WAS LEFT IN TEARS. IF YOU ARE ILL, AVOID THE DOCTOR. I would lastly like to give a massive thanks to the Hotel Director for the generosity he showed my family throughout the duration of our stay. I cannot wait to return to Marhaba Beach, it’s like going home!More
