The smart Riu Palace Hammamet Marhaba combines a beachfront setting with a relaxing pool scene. It’s got fans on TripAdvisor, too – reviewers rank it among the top 20 hotels in Tunisia.
Set on a long, gold-sand beach and surrounded by palm-filled gardens, the Riu Palace Hammamet Marhaba has bagged one of the prettiest spots in town.
This hotel makes the most of its setting. Expect whitewashed bungalows metres from the sand, restaurants with open-air terraces, and winding footpaths on manicured lawns.

Not 5 star
I would say, food, service and staff excellent, apart from an Assistant Manager. All areas very clean, rooms are good. Bungalows are not necessarily on the ground floor. So for people with mobility problems, be aware you may have a couple of flights of stairs up to your "bungalow". Drinks of a good standard and plenty of choice. Entertainment, usual Hotel stuff, a bit basic really. Fab speciality Restaurants, both of a very good standard and service was excellent. However, you have to go at 5.30pm to see Head Waiter to book in. Cant be done at Reception or over the phone. Down side, meals are in 2 sittings. I prefer the freedom of being able to eat when I wish, not set times. However, we were on the later sitting and there was always plenty of choice. Seemed to have to queue in person for lots of things, that could be organised much more efficently. looked around the Spa, great facilities. However, indoor pool can only be used at a charge. Got this Hotel at a good price, I would definitely not pay full price as no way is this 5 star.More
Not too bad.
Stayed June 14-24th 2015. Hotel was clean, bungalow rooms were a pleasant surprise...like having your own suite. Hammamet isn't best location and beach is ok but very public. Having been before we were aware of this though. Food was nice but after 10 days it did get a bit 'samey'. The only real negative was the evening facilities...queues at bars, hardly any outdoor seating which left the lobby which filled with smoke quite quickly. Early nights all round. Nice, clean, pleasant hotel. Staff were nice...Thomson rep was miserable! Would islay again...probably not but only because I've been now. Would try somewhere a bit more lively next time. More
Hotel itself was lovely, food was great. Couple of pools, one for aqua aerobics the other has the pool bar. Not very big pools but they were ok. Weather let us down as it rained for a few days we were there. Had a massage at the Spa but didn't enjoy it as the man who did it was a bit friendly!!More
Stayed here from mid June to early July 2015. First time in Tunisia. The Hotel was clean and staff very attentive. Room cleanliness top class. Food was good and varied for all tastes. Waiting staff excellent and helpful. Bar staff also very friendly. Despite the issues of June 26 we would consider returning in the future. The Tunisian staff at the hotel were the nicest I have encountered....I feel for them now that many will have lost their jobs due to one lunatic.More

Couldn't recommend this hotel enough such amazing staff that would do absolutely anything for you brilliant selection of different food everyday ! The only thing I will say is if you use the spa be aware in the waiting area it's super hot when you have a thick big dressing gown on! Their could be more games in their games room as felt a little empty but other than that we could not fault this hotel would love to come again in the later future Thoughts with Tunisia at this sad timeMore
