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.

Wonderful stay

From the moment you arrive till leaving the hospitality is second to none. This was a last min booking for some winter sun. We got much more than that. The receptionist who greeted us , Moncef was like old friend at the end of the visit. The hotel is dated but this gives it charm. The maids work very hard to keep everywhere clean and cannot do enough for you. Bar staff very attentive especially " Omar " who serves drinks tirelessly all day. Animation team deserve huge credit and many thanks go to Mustafa Sam William Tiga Jimmy and Sofian .... It is not an easy job pleasing everyone yet they do it with natural charm . Such a lovely bunch of fellas.Most pleasing of all is the staff continiously keep asking if everything is ok .... and they really do mean it. The only slight negative I feel is the food ....... all the normal food is there but just not a lot of choice. This hotel only became an All Inc a few years ago and there are still some ajustments to be made. Having said that this is a Hotel for all ages and we would def make a return visit.More

lovely holiday

My partner and I have recently returned from a really nice relaxing break.On arrival at hotel we were made to feel very welcome.We were allocated a room on the first floor overlookin pool,this was perfectly adequate. The pool and garden area are kept very well and not noisy. No trouble getting a lounger the pool guy very helpful. Towels can be hired (save on luggage allowance) The beach has a nice bar great for lunch, sit upstairs to look over the ocean. All staff really friendly. The only negative thing I would say is food quite repetitive but you can always find something. Smoking permitted in bar in reception we personally found this quite offputting, all in all we would return to Marhaba Beach.More

Great value for money beach hotel

We've just got back from a 2 week stay at this hotel. If you're looking for a holiday where you can eat and drink to excess and do nothing but chill out on a beach or by the pool then you really can't go far wrong. However, if you're looking for somewhere you can go out and about to explore both day and night then I would say avoid Sousse as there really isn't a lot to offer outside the hotel. There have been plenty of comments already about the fantastic animation team who are so attentive no matter how old or young you are. The bar and restaurant staff were also incredibly friendly, always smiling, high fiving; if you want to start a conversation up when you arrive then chatting about football is a good place to start as they're all mad on it! Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels - word of warning though to put the do not disturb sign on your door if you dont want to be woken up at 7.30 every morning as the cleaners were very eager to get in the room! One thing I havent seen mentioned much is I would describe the hotel as disabled friendly and during our stay I remember seeing 6 wheelchair users. Whilst there are no rooms on the ground floor, there are 2 very reliable lifts available and there are ramps for wheelchairs all around the hotel with easy access to the restaurant, saloon bar, pool area and the beach which also had a wooden platform going almost all the way down to the sea front. So if accessibility is a concern for you I wouldnt be worried about getting around this hotel. The only let down for us was the salesmen who are stationed on the path between the pool and the beach area so you cant avoid them.The last thing I would expect from a hotel which goes to the extent of roping off the beach area to stop salesmen hassling you is to allow these guys to hassle every single person that walks by. 20 times in 3 days we said no thankyou to the trips they were selling!! At one point the same guy asked us twice in the space of 15 minutes, again we said no thankyou to which point he decided to start an arguement by shouting after us "why are you getting angry, I'm doing my job" to which I said, we werent getting angry and I respected to fact he had a job to do but for the 22nd time we didnt want to buy any trips. His response: "well if I'm ruining your holiday I wont speak to you anymore, I wont even say hello" which was fine by us! I spoke to 2 other couples who said these guys also picked arguments with them so if someone from the hotel reads this, get rid of these guys or move them away to an area where they can't keep pestering everyone as they're ruining an otherwise lovely hotel. I've seen people questioning the 4* rating of this hotel and I would say that realistically it probably is around 3/4* by Tunisian standards; I think people visit Tunisia with unrealistic expectations of what it will be like. As I said at the beginning though, if you want a cheap getaway for a lazy week on the beach then I would absolutely recommend this hotel as a place to visit.More

An average hotel in an average place

Marhaba Beach hotel is a average hotel. There is nothing really to shout about. Yes, it is by the beach, but unless you get there really early you will not find a beach lounger; it is not the best of beaches to swim in as it gets deep very quickly. Yes, there is a swimming pool, but it is not very big. Yes, there is not a hotel directly next door, the hotels further down the beach are tightly packed. Yes, the weather was hot, even though there were some dramatic thunderstorms in the evening. Yes, the staff and animation team are very friendly and enthusiastic. The food, however, was nothing to shout about. The accommodation very standard. Sousse has nothing really to offer, and is dirty and smelly, with road works everywhere it seemed. There is lots of traffic in the main city which seems to be coming from every direction, but moves without too much problem, and there are NO TRAFFIC LIGHTS, perhaps we in the UK should take a lesson from this. Would I go back to this hotel again? No, I would go to somewhere else in Tunisia.More
