Brilliant hotel!

Literally just arrived home from the Maharba Salem Hotel in Sousse a few hours ago. My husband and I went for a week and we were sorry to have had to return home! We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend the hotel to others.We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Waiting/reception staff were helpful and friendly. Good variety of food, always something to my taste. Fredj at the pool was very helpful and made sure we had sunbeds daily. Last but not least the Animation team were the life and soul. They work tirelessly day and night and don't get enough credit for their hard work. Offering plenty of activities during the day such as water polo and aqua fit and great shows /discos in the evening. A special mention though for Mizo, Mido, Mohammed Ali, Choco, Cris and Sam who looked after us particularly well and made our holiday very enjoyable. Nothing was a problem to these boys. Hope to return in the future.More

Best holiday ever, will be returning

I originally booked to go on my own and then a friend wanted to come so she booked and we were moved to a twin. After reading Trip Advisor reviews about being pestered and food shocking I was a bit worried. Then the shootings happened in a museum and I was glad I wasn't going on my own. I have never felt so safe and looked after!! Did not get pestered/followed etc. We stayed 22nd April to 29th April. Upon arrival there was a bit of a cock up with our room as it was still being cleaned but we were moved to another room. We were in room 424 on top floor with a pool view. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good it was cold and cloudy so we started drinking lol. It got warmer but think I will go May time next year as boiling now! I like red wine and expected it to taste rubbish but it actually tasted really nice like a Rioja it was full bodied but def had less alcohol as I drank loads and wasn't on the floor. The hotel was pleasant, looked after and clean. I have been to Dominican Republic 3 times and Cuba once so know what all inclusive food was like. The was lots to choose from in the restaurant, lovely eggs and pancakes in morning. I was put off by some dishes as had bones in it and didn't look nice, other meats were nice and pizza/pasta was yummy. The Animation team were fantastic really good dancers and great shows at night. They were practising for a Lion King show in May so I knew the songs off by heart by the end of the holiday lol. We went to the club a couple of times and Ash and Sam looked after us. They are all lovely :) Thank you to Sophie who lent me her shoes for horse riding. We met Mashoud on the beach who sells horse riding trips we went twice and Hichem was our guide, we felt safe at all times and really enjoyed it. The beach is lovely and sandy but can get a little windy, hotel grounds and pool very nice. GG the spa lady pestered us a little for massages etc practically followed us around, bless she is only doing her job so we booked in, the male masseuse was a bit creepy and touchy feely so this is only bad point. My facial was ok but not like here at home. Bottles of water are free at bar and the bar men worked hard and remember your drinks. Our room was clean and comfortable and bed nice and water always hot. I am a light sleeper so packed silicone ear plugs, wasn't too loud at night, put it this way my friends snoring was louder haha. The pool and shops guys chatted to us and were nice never pestered us. I fell in love with place and hotel and will be going back in SeptemberMore
