Our family of three spent a week at Dar El Bhar. The small, two-storey hotel is built around a patio planted with trees and shrubs. The rooms are reached via open arcades surrounding the patio, giving the atmosphere of the cloisters of an ancient monestary. The house is beautifully decorated in a traditional local manner with dark wood, stonewalls, window shutters, old lamps, etc. In the main building there is a large dining room with bar and two open chimneys

On one side of the garden there is a restaurant, which is open to the public and has a lovely terrace right on the beach. Between the hotel and the beach there is a very well kept garden with palmtrees and a swimmingpool. At the end of the garden and right at the beach, there are several canopies with lounge-chairs. Around the pool and on the beach there are more than enough sun-chairs.

Being 3 adults we had booked one of the spacious suites with two rooms, separate toilett, built-in closets,bathroom with tub and shower and a big balcony. A safe and refrigerator were available in the room, drinks could be ordered at the bar. The room had air-conditioning and a heating system. We assue, that the room had not been occupied for several weeks prior to our arrival, as it took a couple of days to maintain a comfortable temperature. But the very friendly staff provided additional blankets so everything was fine.

Our package included half-board. Breakfast was served on the beach terrace and dinner in the hotel dining-room. As some nights we were the only hotel-guests, there was no breakfast buffet and we were served a big, delicious breakfast at the table incl. hand-pressed orange juice and omlette/crepes made to order. Dinner was 3-4 courses with the option to select one out of two different main courses every night. We enjoyed the good food.

Free WiFi is available in the reception area and we could have bought a data package at a reasonable price. But we prefered to enjoy this very quiet and cosy place and to take long walks on the beach.

We went to dar el bhar for our honey moon. The hotel could seem a little "old" or "standard" from outside but it is all the opposite. The staff is wonderfully friendly, from the first discussion with them we felt welcome. We arrived at 6 in the morning and the gentleman was very helpful. The rooms are really nice and cozy with an authemtic djerbian tunisian decoration, you feel that it was picked up nicely. In the hotel you feel like you are home, total freedom. The restaurant is just infront of the nice beach, breakfast is served there in a buffet and wverything is delicious with anexcellent variety. The view from the pool is amazing. We stayed 6 days and in our lst day the staff were so nice they provide us a room to shower which is so generous from their part. The atmosphere is light and friendly and the hotel is super. Would come again and again.

Hospitality outstanding! Marwa the head receptionist is precious, incredibly helpful, charming........perfect..... The minute you walk into this small hotel you feel like you are at home. Dar el Bhar means House by the Sea. The inside courtyard is absolutly beautiful, the rooms very clean and authenique, furnished in the local tradition. If possible choose the suites which overlook the pool and beach. The restaurant is good but nothing more, order the fresh caught fish of the day, this is what they do best. The evenings are frequented by locals with a lively ambiance. The staff will go out of their way to make sure your stay is memorable as if you had been invited into their home. In a way you have, this is the "House by the Sea".

The rooms at this hotel have names, not numbers. This is perfectly summarizes what makes it a special place to stay. From arrival to departure you are given personal service from staff who genuinely want you enjoy your stay.
English is spoken by most staff, but to varying standards. Given that most of the visitors are French or German it is a reflection on the regular clientele but if one member is struggling to understand, then another will probably be able to help.
We stayed in a suite overlooking the pool and beach, with a splendid terrace. If you can choose a suite then this is a worthwhile upgrade. The room was large with plenty of storage. The bathroom was a little small by comparison.
Breakfast is served in a separate building which is half bar and half restaurant. The restaurant area extends to a terrace on the beach and this is a lovely spot for breakfast. Omelettes and crepes are made to order and there is a buffet offering a variety of breads, pastries, fruit, cheeses and meat. It is good, if not exceptional, but more than adequate.
The bar is frequented by locals in the evenings as well as hotel guests so has more of a lively local atmosphere than an impersonal international hotel.
There is a formal restaurant in the main hotel building but in the end we did not eat in there so cannot review. There was no particular reason, other than lots of restaurant choices, so do not read anything into this. There are plenty of taxis passing outside the hotel to take you anywhere on the island. The hotel can also arrange an English speaking driver if you wish.
Poolside there are enough beds for all guests and there are also beds on the beach itself if you wish. There is a main pool and also a small paddling pool.
There is no piped music throughout. There is no 'animation' team to fabricate 'entertainment'. Families with school age children may struggle to keep them occupied and I would say generally this is an ideal hotel for couples and friends, and possibly for families with pre-school children.
For the most part the hotel is peaceful and has a relaxed atmosphere. During our stay this was sadly interrupted by the Telemaque hotel next door. Reviews of that hotel tell of the wonderful Bravo club animation team and the music and dancing. Sadly the noise of this 'entertainment' crosses easily to its peaceful neighbour and briefly disturbs the normal tranquility.
The biggest positive aspect of staying here is the staff and the personal service. They are not perfect but their enthusiasm and selflessness make up for any deficiencies. On our last day they kindly provided a day-room for us to use until our evening departure to the airport. A gesture we really appreciated.
We selected the hotel based on reviews here on TA. We booked through booking.com. I mention this because this bypassed any language difficulty and the hotel's own website.
Overall, this is a pleasant small independent hotel where you are a name, not a number.

I stayed here for 4 nights recently. Here's my mixed experience

We got a standard room, it was fine, nothing special, I was slightly disappointed - I thought the price premium wouldve gotten me a little more.

The staff was all very nice, and they really WANTED to make sure they gave great hospitality, but I think they just didnt know exactly what that meant. I mean we spent time at the Radisson Blu down the street, and the difference was huge - likely because all of the people at the Radisson were specifically trained on "Hotel Hospitality". But honestly the lack of this at Dar El Bhar made the staff awkward.

The restaurant is only OK.

Pool/Beach area are great.

AC was busted in our room, so they upgraded us for the last night - nice gesture and I appreciated it.

2 things really annoyed me. 1 - I was trying to buy something from a corner store and they didnt have enough change (I was trying to buy some water with a 10 dinar note - not like it was a 100 or anything wow) and he didnt have change. No problem right? Ill just go to my hotel. My hotel, after asking numerous places, bar, restaurant, reception, could NOT give me 2 5 dinar coins for my 10! It really bugged me.

Second thing. You cannot pay with a swipe credit card. In fact, our PIN credit card wasnt even working. Good thing I guessed that this wouldnt work and gave myself two hours to checkout, which involved walking 10 minutes to nearest ATM and making 4 transactions to withdraw 1200 dinar to pay for our entire stay. Oh, and the largest bill you get is a 20 note ha. Hotel didnt seem to realize that this was an inconvenience.

I didnt check prices, but if you could get a room for 2x the price at the radisson blu, id be worth it.

I am still mixed on whether I would stay here again...

Response from darelbhar, Directeur général at Hotel Dar El Bhar
Responded 29 Apr 2014
As General Director of the Dar El Bar Hotel in Djerba I would like to comment on « Nice, but some annoyances ». Your statement concerning my staff and their « awkward hospitality » is unworthy. I believe that your comparision with the Radison Blue is far fetched and out of context. The Radisson Blue is an internationl hotel chainwhich can accompany 12000 people, their staff are in-house trained. The Dar El Bar is a family owned quaint hotel, all staff are trained at the official Tunisian hotel school and have all worked at the larger chains. We have only 27 rooms and we encourage a family atmosphere. Which by the way Dar El Bar means the house by the sea. The AC was not busted as we explained to you. For the moment we are still heating until May as the nights can get chilly. I believe that our gesture to upgrade made up for your so-called inconvienence. Second thing = It is clearly indicated that we don not accept swipe cards (which are normally either Diners or American Express). If your PIN card was not working than that is a problem between you and your bank nothing to do with the hotel. Most of our guests pay in this manner. As far as prices are concerned again with a comparision to the Radisson Blue, there is no comparision! We are a small establishment and privately owned. We offer a typical Tunisian family enviroment. This all depends on what you are looking for during your vacations. I am available for any further comments. Sincerely,
