    Hotel in Sousse

    by

    The Tej Merhaba is a large tourist hotel very near the seafront with generously-sized rooms on seven floors. It has it's own section of beach managed by hotel staff. It's a good choice if you want to be reasonably close to the medina and central area of Sousse - a taxi from here costs 3-4 dinars or it can be walked in around 15 minutes.

    On the debit side I wasn't keen on the spongy pillows and the unknown mechanical noise from the hotel which automatically switched on at 10pm every evening and kept me awake. The food in the self-service restaurant was mostly good though nothing to get really excited about; breakfast being a more satisfying proposition than the evening meal.

    The location and the outdoor pool are undeniably superb and there is nothing major to complain about but I think I would probably be tempted to try another hotel next time.

    Unique Quality: Probably the best feature of this hotel is the lovely outdoor swimming pool set in the garden area at the back of the hotel, perfect for a taking a refreshing dip in between lounging on the sunbeds.

    Directions: Beach front, 15 minutes walk from centre

    A very pleasant stay in this hotel - graded 4 star but to us Brits I reckon the rooms (although large and comfy with ensuite bathrooms) have facilities of 3 star. Actual hotel and facilities I would rate 4 star. A weeks stay here on half board arrangement - food was very good and plentiful - self service buffet style. Breakfast you could have freshly made eggs/omelets/pancakes on order. Dinner there was carvery and a selection of european and tunisian style dishes - not a lot for veggies in the hot selection though if you don't eat fish. Waiters and staff were very helpful and courteous. Cleaners were always at work in the large marble reception areas and maids always had a novel way to fold the bed sheets and night attire!

    Unique Quality: Good sized swimming pool in the garden area - free sunbeds for residents - attached to hotel is a shopping centre and english style pub and other restaurants plus nightclub. In addition hairdresser, beauty salon and sauna, turkish baths too. For recreation there are outdoor and indoor pools, 4 tennis courts (two floodlit) with equipment available for hire, fitness room, table tennis and pool table. Sun Terraces and gardens. Really you could spend a week just here in the complex - but to do that would be to miss out on all that Sousse can offer and other areas of Tunisa.

    Directions: 1.5 km from the centre of Sousse and 150 metres from the famous beach of Boujaafar.

Tej Marhaba is a fantastic hotel. It has its own shopping centre (quite expensive though), Rose and Crown pub – English pub with a hint of Irish (supposedly – couldn’t work that out at all)!! Its bit dark and depressing in there for my liking, but each to their own. Dolce Vita restaurant (pizza is nicer in the Oasis restaurant by the pool) and the nightclub (never went there).The only gripes we had was the rubbish customer service. But we found that all over Tunisia, not just the hotel. They don’t seem to like the English very much for some reason!!!

The room was absolutely fine, the bed was comfortable, the carpets were clean, the balcony was clean. The bathroom was not quite as clean as I personally would have liked but I just bought cleaning fluid and a couple of cloths and cleaned it myself!! There was a fridge in the room big enough to store 3 large bottles of water, and a little freezer section for ice cubes. There was a telly in the room with only 2 English channels..

The pool area is heavenly. The pool is refreshingly cool, and there are many sunbeds to choose from, under parasols or not. The mattress guy will come straight over to you to put mattress on your sunbed. We normally gave him 1dinar tip for us both. But by the end of the holiday, we had to join in with the ‘save your sunbed club’ and tip him 2 dinars to save our sunbeds!! Otherwise all the sunbeds are taken by the time you have finished your breakfast on a hot day!

The restaurant is ok. Very little fruit though…. Only watermelon and peaches…..

Breakfast – Freshly cooked pancakes and doughnuts, two types of cereal, eggs, sausage, toast, etc. Unfortunately we broke the toaster on our third day so now they do all the toast in the kitchen and leave it in a basket for the guests, its alright if you like cold toast!! (Sorry everyone…)

Dinner - If you are not a vegetarian you will find plenty of choices, 2 choices of soup, 3 different meats, rice, chips, potatoes, vegetables, etc. The puddings are lovely. I had chocolate cake everyday! Sousse itself is brilliant!! If you leave the hotel from the shopping centre and turn right and follow the street, after about ten minutes you will come into the main town centre. On the way you will see that the streets are clean and well swept. There are lots of little shops to look in; restaurants to eat in and there are cash points every two minutes. The shop owners will see you and say “come look in my shop”, but when you say ‘No thank you’ they just let you go. They really don’t give you any grief. Once you say no, they leave you alone. The Medina is good, but it can be very hot and claustrophobic once you get into the centre of it.

We visited Port El Kantoui, which is nice but really glad we didn’t stay there. It is nice, but a bit too quiet for us and it is a man made area around a port surprisingly enough!!

We did the Sahara Trip which was fantastic – only thing I will say is don’t take young children. It is roughly a 600 round mile trip and is well worth the money. You will have to pay an extra 20 dinars for the camel ride and the 4x4 trip into the mountains. TIP - When you get off coach to go on green horse and carts – take insect spray as you will be eaten alive!!

A nice and clean hotel that is in a good location. Loved it tej marhaba

by TripAdvisor Member samsam00

we stayed at the hotel from 31Oct to 9th Nov, for 10 nites halfboard,we were 2 females.
the weather was great it was 28c for the first week and for the last few days it was 24-25c which was nice.
The hotel is very clean.. people are always cleaning, rooms are cleaned every day. it is very attractive hotel with a great pool. the waiteress staff are friendly and will look after u,
the food was great different dish every day , selection of food from tunisian food to european dishes.
people in tunisia are understand and can speak english OK. but they are fluent in french language.

The medina is good expereince but beware ppl like to rip you off but haggling for gifts was fun.

the men there are good looking but also clingy when they find out you are from england .... they also stare at u because harldly ever see females in skirts and shorts but over all every one is friendly.

the night life was quiet good for the season we went but im told that is better in the summer becuase there are more tourists. we went to maracan club which is inside the hotel it was nice club with mixture of music starts at 11pm and finishes at 4am so not bad. queens club was good in port al kantoui was nice too , metalika club was good as well.
also there are lots bars and pubs karoke was good in the rose and crown pub .
Cant waite to return in the near future.

Worth the cash

Stayed at Tej Marhaba 21/9/05-6/10/05 on honeymoon, extremely impressed with all aspects of this place, food good, very helpful staff, and what a huge bed! We would not hesitate to stay there again and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a peaceful break. Our peace was only broken outside the complex by street traders, but found a stern "la" lets them know if you dont want to buy!

What a great holiday!!!

We spent a fabulous 2 weeks at the Tej Marhaba in Sousse this September. The hotel itself is very impressive. A beautiful structure and inside is extremely grand. The rooms are very clean and the maids do a wonderful job every day, changing towels and making up the beds with their wonderful 'crop circle' like arrangements of the bedding. It was a treat coming in from a sunbathing session just to view them.
Meals were tasty and plentiful. I have seen the word 'repetitve' mentioned, but the only repetition was the accompaniments. The food (lacking pork for obvious reasons) was always hot and well presented. Waiters more than willing to help you to you tables with you fayre.
A wonderful guy reserved your sunbed for you, for the right gratuity, and of course the right tip would mean good service by waiters both at the pool and in the bars and reception bar in the evenings.
Entertainment was local and humourous at times, not to everyone's liking but I suppose no two people always like the same things. Bingo is a treat and at the end of 2 weeks I am fluent in numbers 1 to 90 in English, French and German.
Take a trip called 'African Dream' which involves a trip to a zoo/wildlife park followed by a simple meal and a fabulous show involving North & South Africans. Zulu dancing was superb and the pictures taken are cheap enough.
If you are into football the hotel arranged us a trip to a match. Sousse were playing at home and only go for the experience. If you think an English match is bad African matches will never be. The police presence with guns and nightsticks puts you off the idea of a pitch invasion. Excellent match though, no trouble (obviously), and it looked as though the 3 women in our party were the only 3 in the stadium.
Look out for the footballers in the hotel too. They pop in regularly for meals, especially lunch.
The only fault I can find with the whole holiday experience was the reception staff. They 'appear' unfriendly and intimidating and will cut you off to get rid of you rather than listen to you. Neither made the effort or appear to care what you have to say. This is probably doing them an injustice as they are probably very good at their job, but I would say brush up on you 'customer care' skills.
Wages are low in Tunisia so most rely on tips, but even in 2 weeks of tipping it didn't make too big a dent in the budget.
All in all a wonderful experience which I am happy to be repeating next year.

we will be back

by TripAdvisor Member she&al

at last my wife got me to go abroad on holiday. i asked where are we going she replied Tunisia, ok says i lets do it so we checked it out, mind you she had already booked it, first time abroad started with a 10 hour delay at Bristol airport turning a night flight to a morning one. we arrived at Monastir to be met by our rep Nabil who was born in Sousse he led us to our bus then on to The Taj Marhaba Hotel. well what can you say about this hotel that is the jewel in the crown, i just cannot fault it the staff inside and outside are at your beck and call just raise your hand and they are at your side and if they can get it for you they will balconys were getting painted, but the painters lifted
our washing, folded it and placed it on our bed. sun, sea, relaxation just what we needed all in all no probs and that includes changing money, oh by the way that was Scottish as well

Tej Marhaba Hotel, sousse.

Hi, I've been trying to get in touch with the hotel with little luck up to now. I was to believe that by a safe box they meant a safe in your room, of reasonable size. I'm now reading that they may only be a safety box behind reception. Basicaly I'm an amature photographer with a rather expensive camera I'd like to take along, although not sure on the size of these boxs. The camera isnt small with the lense I'd like to take and obviously I'm a bit concerned about leaving it in the room. Anyone been here and give me an idea of size and price for the safe box per week or 2week as it will be?
