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 a pool 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.

No way a 4 star hotel!
This hotel is definetly based more for the over 50's! When we first arrived we had to wait for our room to be ready and was told 15 minutes....45 minutes later we went back up to reception to ask and was told the room was ready. When we got to the room the cleaner was still in there! The pool: Can't comment as it was being painted, we were not told this beforehand so could not use for the whole weeks stay! We were told we could use the pool in adjacent hotel but this was also closed! Thomas Cook rep or hotel did not really have much to say when we asked let alone an apology! The beach: The hotels part of the beach is average but be prepared if you try and get your own sun lounger the guy gives you evil looks and shouts! He wants to get it for you then demand a tip! While I don't mind tipping I do when it's being demand and a hand shoved in your face so I refused. There are loads of locals at the bottom of the beach so if you want a dip in the sea (I would not as 20 meters down you can see all the sewage being poured in) prepared to get abused for money. The staff: Entertainment staff are the only good part of this whole hotel! They were lovely and could not do more for you. The locals: Having travelled the world this is one place I would never come back too. The whole poce was dirty and the streets lined with rubbish. Th locals are some of the most horrid people I have ever met! They were happily trying to grab my arm and asking 'how much' when my partner told them to leave me alone they become even more rude and aggressive! I know this is not all people that lived there but sadly many that I came in contact with! The food: I survived off pancakes and bread rolls. Not much choice for food and staff using their hands and the same utensils to touch cooked and uncooked food. I am yet to meet someone who has been to tunisia and not had an upset stomach! All in all I would not recommend this hotel or tunisia to anyone!More

Bald headed leach weasel!!!
Hi guys, just came back from this hotel, did I have a nice time.. Yes and no really. Weather was the best you could of wish for, hotel was ok not four star though, food ok for the first week, second week poor. The animation team were great apart from the bald headed leach weasel who was suppose to be the manager! If you have a beautiful fiancÃ© or wife.. Watch out for him, my fiancÃ© told me everything he said to her behind my back, I had to catch him at 6 o'clock in the morning and tell him to back off, I still couldn't leave her left alone when he was about, you wouldn't believe what he said to her. As a man who is a manager of a kids entertainment team the words he used was vile. So won't be returning whilst he is still working there. I've got got to thank Stevie who brought our beds out by the pool like clock work. Omar delivered our drinks quick with no trouble and Gerry who works in the restaurant, nothing was too much to asked for. I would of brought these issues up with someone when I was there but I didn't see one Thomson rep there for the whole two weeks I visited which I found crazy. Thank you again for all the lovely staff who made our holiday great but remember guys watch out for the bald head leach weasel!! Dave and Family More
relaxing, enjoyable and friendly experience
Good fresh food and variant range of Tunisian and continental cuisine. Friendly staff from waiters, pancake lady, porters, bar and the animation team. Close or literally on the beach, not far from Sousse central or El Kantaoui (by cab). Tipping is a gesture but much appreciated by the staff and as little as 1 Dinar (35p) will go far. Negative reviews from our experience there, would most likely be down to a cultural or a personal misunderstanding from the customer as they were helpful and welcoming from start to finish. Daily entertainment from morning til night keeps you going and meeting new people easily without the need for alcohol! Lol. Hotel is starting to be a bit dated but is ongoing updates throughout with any inconvenience. If doing any trips then El djem is good but the 3 cities is a waste unless you're wanting to spend half the day in mosques and the coach. There are other facilities to try out there including a simple but cheap spa . Take a trip to the roof for a great view (a must of the keen photographer). Highly enjoyable and recommended place (hotel and Tunisia) and I was extremely apprehensive before going. An unforgettable experience.More
