Price performance ratio is good. The hotel is located at beach. The hotel building is a mushroom, so you either morning sun or evening sun has. There are also rooms, the opposite beach chairs, so not the pool show. These are very quiet. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The beach chairs on the beach are not reserved, you must own-very good! Beach chairs on the lawn kölnnen be reserved. The hotel guests mixed-young and old-from different nations.

The mahdia palace as star hotel to sell is quite rude! The general 'cleanliness' and the' palace cafeteria ' are a huge disappointment. Earned five stars here only the architecture of the reception, in a oriental-palace is. Then it was downhill. The way to the room leads over punctated carpets by a dark hallway with a pervasive smell. The rooms are big though, with the cleanliness you take it but not accurate. Horripilated us before the towels, the full …  read hotel review

Nice atmosphere, excellent thalassobereich, varied evening entertainment. Very polite, attentive staff in all areas. The 9 hole golf practicing area we used them every day, although this is in need of an overhaul. Also here we felt comfortable and have only nice people. The food was good and the dessert buffet prepared with lots of love. Room was very nice and big and the housekeeping staff very good. read hotel review

I have stayed at another excellent hotel in Mahdia, so was a little apprehensive about deciding to change venue. I shouldn't have worried. Visually, a beautiful hotel with a traditional Tunisian foyer with a wide marble staircases sweeping down to the lower floors - traditional Arab carved balustrades and mazzanine - awesome! Very friendly and welcoming staff greeted us on arrival at reception with a fresh fruit drink. On reception level there was a large lounge with huge comfy settees and chairs. Several bars and a Night Club. Also on that lever, the entrance to the Thalasso. A large shop ... selling a wide range of items was located on the second floor On the bottom floor were several games rooms, TV lounge and a library. (What a pity the guests who 'borrowed' the books failed to return them!) and the entrance to the indoor pool. There was also a small lounge serving the traditional mint teas etc. Any problems during our stay? It would be impossible to find the smallest thing to complain about and we have every intention of returning in November for another elongated stay. We would both like to thank all the staff involved with our stay!! read hotel review

    We used 2 dining rooms during our stay - both excellent not crowded. The food was a major problem for me, as it was simply excellent with a buffet offering a good range of salads and horse- d'oeuvre, and continental breads, salamis, cheeses etc, 2 very popular soups a superb choices of both Tunisian Cuisine and European style food.with a range of freshly grilled foods and my downfall, a beautiful and extensive range of mouthwatering desserts. Always fresh fruits and usually a range of ice cream - and after the first 2 weeks, I had to limit my visits to the evening meal as i found it very difficult to resist the temptations offered by the brilliant chef and his team. Also, very quick and professional service from the waiters and maítre d's

    The hotel is situated in the touristic area about 6 kilometers from the town centre. Cheap taxis run throughout the day and evening from the front of the hotel - cost 4 dinars including the tip. A short walk away is the metro station where regular trains run to Monastire and Sousse

    A sculptured outdoor pool with fountains and a small toddler's pool - and a pool bar with waiter service for those sunbathing around the pools and gardens. Beach towels were available for a small refundable deposit. One step out of the well maintained garden and you are literally on the best beach in Tunisia.

The rooms in the hotel for me was great. Ocean view with sun and a lot of peace and quiet during the holidays. The food was good enough for me, a lot of vegetables and salad. The service and also the biggest temptation for me was the small cake every evening. Madhia is unfortunately even at the beach dirty has become. I hope the get the tunisians soon handle after a week i see the dirt but not more as at the beginning. The hotel is clearly dated, but for my needs it was enough perfectly. read hotel review
