The hotel has a lot of facilities and is nicely laid out. The hotel feels very spacious you never feel that it is crowded even though the hotel was full. The hotel offers all inclusive and nearly all activities are free. The guests were multi-national and ranged from families to couples. The hotel was clean, but it could do with some renovations to maintain a 5* standard read hotel review

    The hotel is on the beach, 35 minutes from the airport, 3 hours from Europe so an excellent choice for a sunshine break. Unfortunately the island of Djerba itself is not the prettiest of places with limited shopping facilities and excursions.

    The entertainment team was exceptional. Led by Daniel and Aurora they provided a lot of fun and energy and all the team came across as very genuine and enjoyed the company of the guests. I know that the group I went with were very sad to leave. I spent most of my time cycling round the island as part of the mountain bike club. The tours were led by the amazing Arsen Agasyan. He was very professional, new the best places and routes to go around the island and would cater each tour to the ability of the group. He was fantastic company and I would be happy to go back just for the cycling. The island of Djerba is great for beginners to intermediate cyclists as it is very flat, but be warned it is very hot in august even at 08:00 in the morning. The club could really push themselves as an all year round fitness club if they improved the gym which was poor and built a better running track. The other sports activities were excellent

  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    This was my first all inclusive and I was taken aback by the quality, range and presentation of the food. Each day was a different theme, but there was always a wider choice of food available if you didn't like that days theme. Unlimited drinks 24/7 both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, although the alcoholic drinks were of a cheap local variety so the quality was not great. I would have been happy to have had the option to have paid extra for better quality alcoholic drinks.

    It is in the area for self-service restaurant had three à la carte restaurants, where one very well meals can. The food in the self-service area all very fresh and of the highest quality. Also the drinks could be seen. Very good is the tunisian wine. A large praise all those, which the dining room each evening so nice to the respective theme night decorated had. Simply a dream. And as well as with us, look forward to the staff about a tip. We gladly give, if someone so much effort that we such a beautiful holiday.

    There are in the area and at the beach every day many sport activities from the entertainers very well organised. Very nice was also the animations in the evening offered. Especially the dancing of the four very good entertainers. Also for the kids was very much. The Mungo-club gives very much and good with small from. Very nice, we had the evening the sandmändchen for the small found. All children had to hingefiebert. The Nicole very nicely done. At the beach as at the pool we only clean and beautiful beach chairs and umbrellas there. The children's pool there was even own kinderduschen. And also at the pool bar at the small thought.

No matter whom they are in the area meet, whether the manager, the maids, the chef, the waiter, the gardener or anyone else is. All are one with a friendly smile again. And the advantage of what these people to us, all of them good a foreign language. Whether german, english or french. You can take all very well maintained. The room cleaning was always to our best satisfaction. We can't complain about anything. Or where you will find at the pool a toilet area where in the entrance everything with flowers was? And not just by the pool, all toilet facilities were always kept very clean and very nicely decorated.

    The hotel is about 30 minutes away from the airport. From the great, large and clean rooms one is in few steps at the clean sandy beach. The hotel is so centrally located that you in few minutes reach can. If you are in the centre for shopping or just a small stroll. We only went on excursions with our tour operator TUI booked. Here we were by mr clean for the best bedreut. Although the trip into the desert only four participants true, the trip done. And we had a great day. Thank you again.

The hotel is comparable Magic Life hotels, for example in Egypt, relatively worn. A renovation is in many parts of the area as a matter of urgency. Apart from the condition of the area, was the staff tried hard, in a clean condition to offer. Pleasant is the free offer of wi-fi in the lobby and bar area and many water sports.

    Beach: there were enough beach chairs with cushions at the beach were available. These were however already partially damaged (broken), which is only through the cushions been settled. Sport offers were very versatile available, for example, water ski, banana, canoe, surfing, catamaran, beach volleyball and football, boccia and nordic walking. The rating for the sport would be 6 suns (very good) Entertainment: the evening found to our travel time at the beginning there were still in the amphitheatre, however, primarily in the disco or at the wonderful place. The event in the disco we did not use, as this ambiance is not acceptable. Here you would need to other more appropriate premises in the winter months look for (for example, the construction of the old pool in the hotel), to these events is a better flair to give. The charisma of the participants in the evening program we have stayed in the past few years much positive to us. Maybe but in 3 weeks for winter break of the hotel.

    The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. With the available resources and opportunities try always a nice atmosphere to create. The staff in the kundenkontaktbereich mostly spoke german as well as english and french. The room cleaning service was in order, only with the lock of the door by the staff there was at the beginning of problems (until we personally the staff explained), this does not speak for a good instruction of the staff. The hotel is spread out by video surveillance. This will also by signs told. In some places, such as on the beach, the crossing from the hotel to the water park, the main entrance... , also security all day use.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    Dining: in the hotel there were the main restaurant magico bronzo, as well as 3 specialty restaurants (sofra (tunisian ), Baia (mediterranean), may thai (asian). The only negative was the existing offer of fresh juices for breakfast, that in any case the last years was. So there was no freshly squeezed orange juice and the offered carrot juice was very watery. Often you could only on the basis of the colors of the drinks imagine, which it was. For example was the beetroot (milk?) -mix juice very optically attractive, but little tasty and very special. The quality of the food and drinks (except see juices breakfast) is not to complain about. The dinner had a different motto daily, plus the restaurant and the tables daily new very pleasant. Fish lovers will be here with many fish dishes, but feel non-fish lovers might have been almost all theme certainly very good. There are daily standard meal for everyone (soups, pizza, pasta, casseroles, magic light menu, cold platters, salad, vegetables) in the offer and of course meat dishes (often turkey, chicken, beef, veal, lamb). Extraordinary, as in other millilitre clubs often experienced, for example filetfleisch, was not long enough. For landesspezifisches food is in the tunisian corner catered for. Desserts are on the slogan changed daily changing and standard for example ice cream, creams, pomegranades present in sufficient quantity. The theme restaurant sofra one can recommend. It is on pleasant manner a variety of tunisian food with musical frame offered. Not recommended is the may thai restaurant. At the wonderful the Café Sissi (than Café Sissi-effect) offered. During our stay we got there however only a constantly closed Julius Meindl umbrella discover, although in the folder the Café Sissi was offered. Coffee and cake were in the near the pool bar in the afternoon was offered. Snacks around the world at the aquapark: successful additional offer of mittagsessens especially for the beach guests and users of the water parks. Not so rich offer of meals and desserts as in the main restaurant, but perfectly adequate and very pleasant. We booked this food almost daily liked to use it. Beach bar: serving soft drinks/cocktails, beer and wine, and different coffee varieties. A snack bar offers a variety of sandwiches (sweet, vegetarian, hearty) for the small hunger at. The beach bar was constantly being cleaned and the tables were clean. Unpleasant was the very strong worn betonsteinpflaster in the outer area of the beach bar. Run without shoes is very unpleasant. The hotel had several bars. At the evening there to our horrible conditon at the wonderful (0-24h) and the jazz bar (17-01 hours) available. Essentially the bars over a pleasant ambience, which is open to the reception area and also features an outdoor terrace (smoking area). The jazz bar is to the front desk to have glass doors connected. The seating are optically good, but unfortunately a bit uncomfortable to sit. In the middle of the bar has a pool table, integrated, the page area certainly better placed would be. In the wonderful's evening is the jazz bar and an offbeat pol usable. The barkarten offered variety of drinks was that of the past few years, but we discovered, that the optically attractive drinks this year by us cannot be perceived could. During the evenings were always drinks, such as tonic, anisette (only not available, later replaced by an extremely sweet aniseed same name), amaretto and creme de cafe, not any more in the offer. Often tried the waiter then in the other bar a bit to get. This was very nice of the staff, left but no good impression on us on the availability. The cocktail before dinner was a cocktailecke set up, but especially in the last week of our stay only and was diminished, but almost no bar was, since no staff was available.

    The hotel is located directly on the fine-grained sand beach of Djerba. Unfortunately, this is right on the water for all guests, which led, that a variety of horses and kamelbesitzern use this, around tourists their animals products. This condition is not to complain about, but these animals leave tons of excrement and urine directly on the beach (also in the play children), the owners of animals not removed. The only away in the flood or in the property during the morning distance of ashore seaweed. Outside of the hotel area all remains unspoiled. It happened, that the animals from the owners at the beach turned off and then elsewhere talking, some of the horses then alone until the run or ' kuschelten' and entered excited from. We would have more effort on the beach by the 'safety' expected. Also on the sandy beach were many smaller stones, but also old, already through the sea edited debris (concrete, dachziegelreste ) washed ashore, the hotel in the property as far as possible be disposed. Seaweed, the sea again. Except the shops, which is directly in the hotel, were in the immediate environment 'shopping center' than fixed-price shops in about 5 minutes walking distance, the almost all the same offer of usual touristenartikeln lead. With yellow taxis (as in Germany with taximeter) you can for very little money Midoun or Houmt Souk to go shopping. Also at the crocodile farm there are many shopping opportunities and the possibility of inspection of about 400 crocodiles and followed by tunisian village.

Our room (bungalow) was cleaned every day (without, that we have every day tip on the pillow could have been). Our waiters in the restaurant 'camel' was very helpful and friendly (with tips ☺ he has us always the same table prepared, with items purchased bottle (s. evaluation in gastronomy). All the chefs at the buffet were very friendly. Drawback was the welcome and departure the front desk - both fell quite 'lean' from. The spa also all very friendly and the treatments were simply genial ☺ Greeting the next day by TUI-staff was very nice and informative.

    Location of the clubs very good. Transfer from/to the airport approximately 20-30 minutes. To the next town about 5 minutes by taxi or 10 minutes in the larger city. The club is located directly on the beach - because of the generous size of the clubs you had a few minutes to go, but that is part of this. We we were in the pool area were, as the beach and the sea was not as clean, as we would have liked (much horse/camel-kot). Very good and exciting opportunities for shopping - in the 2 nearest towns.

    We were very disappointed from the kids club - because this club also have chosen. Rita from the mungoclub with our first attendance't even asked, as our son, and seemed very unmotivated and annoyed - that simply must degrees at work with children not be! The mungoclub boss Hanna was the exact opposite - very friendly, always smile in the face, is on our small one always received great. But unfortunately - the first impression you forget not... For adults there was a lot of sport and entertainment offer. Some we used this very good. If one the animators met, you knew, that they are very nice and fun, because at first glance seemed all very arrogant and uninterested. I personally wanted actually more activities around the pool to participate, but was not asked, even though other guests were around me were asked. Well telfair, that mothers (our son 3 years was) not being asked (must/should be). The evening shows were great - there is really work behind - hat off! There were enough beach chairs/umbrellas at the pool area, and they are in good condition (of course there were here and there a few, the could be exchanged). Great we found the water slides-area, especially for children a paradise ☺

Then go to the buffet and flavour. Wine selection was very poor - the wines offered in the all-inclusive package, there were simply more inedible (white wine red wine we then to our own security no longer try) - then every evening a bottle of 'better' white wine bought or rose, because after 2 bought bottles was the white wine sold out ☺ We liked, that every evening a motto - tunisian, mediterranean etc. - good idea - up to a few exceptions but it tasted everything right (see above ) ☺ Both the main restaurant, as well as the terrace was always clean.

In short, compared to other Magic Life Clubs (Egypt, Turkey.) A disaster. The resort is old and worn and need quite in need of renovation. Even small measures to maintenance remain. Also the area was very compact. Occupied lack of maintenance therefore, that during some windy days the roof of the amphitheatre during an evening meeting eingestürzte and some guests partly quite seriously injured. Also the area was very narrow cluttered. Where on the kataolgfotos a series to see is, there are two. The is ok, if making appropriate capacity is available, but only. Unfortunately reflects the condition of ... the hotels in the structure of the guests and their behavior again. Who with dinner in a shirt and long pants appeared was classically over-dressed. Shorts and slippers were unfortunately rather the rule. For breakfast and lunch is a trunk and the display of thick belly or fill körperrundungen from.

    Varied sports facilities. Even motorized water sports were inclusive. However, it had the disadvantage, that the whole day engine noises were to be already heard. You can't have everything. The activities at the pool was quite loud and annoying, but luckily can on other places to avoid. Although the tranquillity fully walled is. The whole entertainment team is quite extroverted, but that is to be expected in this job be.

    As already mentioned was on renovation and maintenance mostly declined. Desired repairs were only carelessly and not really conscientious (so not prolonged) running. The staff was always friendly and courteous. Through the continuous coin this could be further enhanced. The service was mixed. Some guests alone with their luggage on the search after your room. Others were accompanied and the luggage was delivered to the room. The room cleaning was ok

    Also here was the expectations based on the other Magic Life Clubs quite high. Unfortunately they were not met. The selection of food and the quality was in order, however, the whistled missing. The selection of appetizers is in other club areas better. The choice of salads was very poor, the dessert always the same and monotonous. Fruit is almost not available. Hihglits as in other millilitre investment in the form of, for example, 4 metres long swordfish, beef fillet in dough, a whole hammelkeule, real freshly prepared sushi, and many more were missing completely. The coffee comes in Magic Life i. d. R. not from the machines, but there are professional siebträgermaschinen to use (even at the beach bar). In some installations during the day water and fresh fruit at the pool and on the beach (to the couches) brought is certainly luxury, but to get used. Here was passed. The theme restaurants were completely different. So was the may thai inedible, the sofra, however, but very good.

  • Room
    2.0

    The rooms were compared to other millilitre clubs with 20 square meter rather small. Also that could be better in other locations where even standard rooms already minutes 32 square meter have. They are small rooms very fully posed, so with old worn partially broken furniture (double bed, couch, desk, armchair, table, suitcase, 2 bedside tables and a wardrobe). The bathroom was awful and stood after each showering under water. The leaky tub and the broken shower head and drain was raklamiert. A repair was unfortunately missing.
