Riu Palace Hammamet Marhaba  

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.

Well worth a visit

Beautiful hotel, with amazing staff who literally can't do enough for you. So friendly and outgoing special mention to bar staff Helmi, Othman who totally made our stay. Aswell as malik and the other animation staff who made us feel so welcome. Hotel was beautiful and really clean. Only thing i feel that let the hotel down was the lack of variety in food, we did find it quite basic. and that their wasn't anywhere to get snacks throughout the day. But over all had lovely relaxing holiday and met some lovely peopleMore



We stayed one week in this hotel in October and I can say it was a relaxing holiday and the food was very good but not the best although the staff at the hotel made up for this as they were always ready to help you whatever you needed. I would say that this hotel was prob a 3.5 star and not a five star. We did go to both yasmine hammamet and hammamet and found the beaches and streets filthy with litter which is the same wherever we went on excursions which kind of spoils your holiday as you don't expect this kind of thing. I must say though that we did have a nice relaxing time during our time in the hotelMore


Superb Relaxing Holiday!

From start to finish of our two week holiday we were really impressed with all of the staff of this hotel from the front desk to the room cleaners. The food in the buffet was varied and in fact the menus were not repeated. Please note one criticism what was on the menu was what not necessarily what was on offer. We ate breakfast on the patio most mornings which was extremely good. Please ignore the reports from people saying the food was poor it is not! We had a 'bungalow' right by the smaller of the two pools which was superb large airy with all the facilities you could need apart from in-room coffee maker. There were always plenty of sunbeds - although there were some 'towel leavers'. The drinks available were not as wide as some people would like but for most people there is a wide enough choice. There was a wide mix of nationalities as guests - sometimes the different cultures could cause some slight problems. Certain Eastern Europeans have NO CONCEPT of queueing or waiting there turn. All in all we had one of the best all-inclusive holidays that we have ever had. One word of warning if you are travelling with Thomson/First Choice holidays they only contract for bungalows at the side front of the hotel - some of these rooms can be noisy until 4 AM because of the disco on the neighbouring property. So try to arrange a room away from this - in fact the hotel seemed happy to move anybody who was upset by the noise. As an aside the Thomson rep Adie was very good in helping!More

returned customer

as in my last review all was very good hotel, staff rooms beach food ext , but one extra tip please request a back room ie pool or sea view ,because most of the people we spoke to that had front rooms had to be moved because of a night club that has sprung up on the front side ,and the noise goes on until 3 or 4 oclock in the morning ,also the bungalows on the front have this problem, its not the hotels doing but I think it needs looking into ,we did ask the rep ,but his answer was that he goes there ,so nothing done ,we were lucky we had a pool/sea view but not so for some of the people we met,and it could spoil someones holiday,evey thing else was up to the usuall riu standard ,excellent .great time had by allMore
