Just got back from tunisia we were booked in this hotel for 2weeks and although we couldn't fault the rooms, food etc it had no atmosphere at all in the evenings no music only the annimation team which was awful! We were in a group of 4 thankfully and felt sorry for couples who looked very bored with each other! We asked the rep if we could have background music and the manager refused so rather than be bored to death on day 5 we moved to marco polo where although busier had at least good entertainment. We booked this hotel after going to tikida agadir in morocco (see my review) but was disappointed as it was not on the same scale. Tip for everyone very secluded hotel we walked outside up the road and it was like beirut! Didn't feel safe at all, would we go again? NO!!!More

We had a superb time at this immaculate hotel. We stayed in a first floor bungalow - huge and very quiet. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. The bar staff, especially Ben and Ramzi, are second to none. The Animation Team was very much better than it was during our last visit. This was thanks to Fifi who has to be one of Riu's top animators and leads his friendly team to an excellent standard. We will return as soon as possible and hope that lots of British tourists will support the Tunisians as they recover from the recent tragic incident.More

The hotel is definitely a 5* hotel. If you want to relax this is the ideal place to come. The staff are excellent from reception to the animation team. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone to help you. There are activities during the day but if you don't want to join in you can just relax, the animation staff don't pressure you into joining in if you don't want to but at the same time are there to ensure you do have a good time.More

Amazing hotel even under horrible circumstances!
we arrived on the 21st June and was taken to our bungalow room which was lovely clean and great views! Spent the next few days down the pool great choice of drinks and lovely staff that remember your name and drink! The beach is beautiful clear waters with fish swimming around you which was fantastic! The food was a lovely surprise ... Chinese one night then Italian then Tunisian absolutely fantastic my boyfriend come back a stone heavier! Even under the circumstances with the attacks in the other hotels the staff made us feel safe and our rep Sarah was brilliant stayed with us even on her day off the poor women looked shattered but she still made sure all her guests staying where calm and answered all questions she could! Even though we couldn't leave the hotel due to security and we couldn't do our excursions we have already looked into going back next year!More
Events didn't ruin a wonderful holiday with amazing staff
Despite the events in the nearby resort we had an incredible holiday. After reading one of the other reviews before leaving I was apprehensive about the level of service on the resort. I can honestly say that review couldn't have been further from the truth. Every single member of staff was warm, friendly, helpful and made the whole holiday fantastic. No one expected to be tipped so when we did at the end of our stay there were incredibly grateful. The rooms (we stayed in a bungalow) were spacious and clean. The beds were huge and really comfortable. Food - we didn't stop eating! There was so much choice. Plenty of choice of where to eat and when. The bars had a great selection of drinks and once the bar staff knew what you liked you didn't even have to leave your seat to get a refill! The entertainments team did a great job looking after everyone who wanted to participate in volleyball, archery, boule during the day and evening events were great too. Special mention has to go to the Thomson rep, Sarah. She was amazing the whole week. From advising us on all the possible excursions we could take to dealing with all the holiday makers questions and concerns when events in Sousse happened. Zulu experience - afternoon tip to the zoo and evening meal with Zulu/Tunisian entertainment. We had a great day. The animals had plenty of space in their enclosures and if you tipped the staff they would take you closer. For 3d (the equivalent of 90p) we took a camel ride too! Trip to the markets - We took a bus to the Camel Market in Nabeul. We had fun bartering with the stall holders for trinkets and souvenirs. After, we stopped for lunch at a golf club before a short tip to a local vineyard for wine tasting! Would we go to Tunisia again? Yes, definitely. Security was already tight around the resort but was tightened still over the following days. Please don't let recent events put you off a fantastic trip.More
