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.

Perfect hotel

The hotel and staff were perfect, the food was excellent and the whole hotel extremely clean. The standard bedroom was large and comfortable. The outdoor swimming pools were too chilly for much swimming though there was an indoor pool, the beach sellers did pester especially as it was quiet. Taxis to the marina were cheap and easy. We will visit this hotel again if travel restrictions are lifted. More

Gutted the FCO and TUI will not let us travel

I am so sorry for all the staff here as they work so hard I do hope people from other countries are visiting. We have always been made so welcome, just like a second home, that was on our return 2 no visit, staff remember you. We had booked to return in February but now it has been cancelled by Thomson. Can't wait till travel restrictions are lifted so we can return. Please do not let the staff give up hope cause a lot of people from the UK can't wait to returnMore

3 nights stay at Riu Marhaba Hammamet

Hotel is great and the room is excellent. Kids club is good despite the lack of people to animate, natical base was closed. Only 1 out of 5 restaurants was working due to the lack of guests (20% occupation).More

A great hotel, excellent service and tremendous value for money.

We visited this all-inclusive hotel 2 weeks before the outrage just further down the same beach in Sousse and although I am a little late in submitting a review, I now do so because I hope that it will encourage Brits and other nationals to return as will I once the travel restrictions are lifted. We have been to Tunisia previously and have always found it to be incredible value for money, excellent accommodation and service. This hotel has been the best that we have experienced. It is a 5 star Platinum hotel and is an imposingly huge edifice in massive grounds. Security was almost non-existent, though I suppose that this will not be the case any longer. The Reception area was awe-inspiring and we were greeted with refreshing drinks on our late arrival.. Bags were taken to our accommodation (bungalow) whilst we were able to get something to eat at 11pm as the management had provided a buffet for such an event. The rooms that we had were perfectly comfortable and well furnished. A couple of minor niggles were sorted immediately and without fuss. Throughout our stay, we found the catering to be of a high standard and there was always plenty of choice of good food. I must admit, that to my disgust, I heard some Brits complaining that there was no "proper" bacon for breakfast. Aside from Tunisia being a Muslim country, surely such people should not expect to travel to foreign parts and find everything is British-centred? Bar staff were very attentive and always patrolling to see if you wanted another drink. Tipping is expected, although only a few dinars is involved. The staff are very poorly paid by our standards and rely heavily on the generosity of their clients. a 10 dinar tip to our maid was received with profuse thanks. It beats me at this time how these poor people are managing their lives without the support of British tourists. We really enjoyed our stay at the Riu Palace and thoroughly recommend it to everyone and urge them to return when safety is assured.More
