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 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.

New Year in Tunisia

After a challenging year we managed to get 2 weeks off over New Year leaving Manchester on the 5am flight, it later transpired this changed to a 9am flight the week after! With an 11 month old this was a challenge and perpetuated by clicktransfers.com dropping us off at the Marhaba Club! Luckily a porter at the Club brought all our bags to the Beach but as you can appreciate we only wanted to get into the room and start our holiday. A relative had asked for whether any complimentary upgrades could be found in the hotel due to our challenging year although confusingly the hotel tried to charge us £210 for the fortnight. We refused to pay, luckily as it transpired as the hotel was dead in the second week. After a further delay we were still given a lovely suite with a sea view which we really appreciated as we could go back to the room at night and watch TV and leave our daughter undisturbed in the living room next to the bedroom. Hotel was desperately missing a snack bar during the day which I assume is available in the Summer. Breakfast was either in main restaurant or in the snack bar. Fried Eggs, Soup, Tunisian Bread and Desserts, Chips and Steaks were our favourite during our stay. Soup probably the best I've tasted abroad if I'm honest, no watery soups here! Apart from that it could be a little hit and miss towards the end of the holiday they tried to do bacon and sausage British style - not good it was like cooked ham burnt on a grill. We loved the stuffed eclairs but had to get them as soon as they were put out. The dining room allocated a table to you which was a little confusing because in the second week this system due to being a lot quieter had stopped for new guests resulting in people sometimes sitting at your table which for us had a high chair. I know one fellow traveller got upset by it one night, consistent approach required with a table corresponding to the room number. New Year Gala was amazing and very generous of the hotel to be included in the all inclusive price. The great and the good seemed to come out for the event and the meal and entertainment was very good, surprisingly so, as New Year is always a let down - it had a great atmosphere to welcome in 2015. All the staff were great on the holiday and made the hotel - Moostafa and his plucky band of animators and Haythem. Hotel is dated in places although it's a grand bygone era type hotel, we would definitely go back again if we had the opportunity. It would be interesting to see what the place is like in Summer. Pool needs work and unfortunately you are no longer able to share the facilities in the hotels in the same gated complex which are younger and have pool slides for the kids . Weather was appalling the week we arrived, cold wind and then it started to rain and didn't stop for 3 days. I'm afraid for all the fellow Brits that didn't stay the first week of January, it was glorious and was early 20s on the Sunday we left. One thing which is unfortunate for Tunisia Tourism and not the Hotels fault is you have to watch your back when out and about by being bothered or taken for a ride. If it is not the Noddy Train conveniently not having change for a 10dinar note, it is being bothered constantly with a phrase to avoid like the plague 'can I give you this for free'. Taxis need to be handled carefully, Rep set a limit of 5 dinar for any journey in the greater Sousse area. We managed to get to the Medina for 7 and Port for 7 and 8. Avoid taxis that will 'wait' for you - the first and last that did for us was unhappy with the timeframe of 2pm when we arrived at 10am and then nearly drove off with a 20dinar note for the return journey of 8! It was like Spain 25 years ago and unfortunately for this lovely country so dependent on tourism and the GDP it brings tourists will turn to a different holiday in the brochure if they feel they haven't been able to relax and let their hair down on the most important two weeks of the year. Ask anyone in Egypt's, Sharm El Sheikh and they will ask 'why do the Brits not visit anymore' and that is the fate Tunisia will haveMore

jinxsmith,

Luxury feel in a friendly environment

We were impressed with the décor of the hotel, the wood work and marble, and the friendliness of the staff. A decent selection of food, including local dishes to choose from. The entertainment was a so so and can be understood as it was possibly the lowest of the low season. Very few people around. The hotel rooms do not have heating, which might have been nice this time of year.More
