Riu Palace Hammamet Marhaba  

The smart hotel 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, this hotel 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.

great hotel

I stayed at the riu palace in october 2014. the hotel is very large and in a secured area. the landscaping is neat and the facilities are very clean. the staff at the reception is very forthcoming and multilingual. I had a bungalow room which was very nice and big , near the pool and it was always cleaned immaculately. the housekeeping lady always made sure i had everything i needed. There are multiple pools & bars. There were ample amounts of sunbeds available so there was never an issue with that. the beach was well maintained and clean. The food was also great and very fresh. Overall I would recommend this hotel.More

Fabulous from start to finish

I visited with my mother & sisters & Loved everything about this hotel, service was impeccable staff fall over each other trying to please you, my housekeeper even bought me gifts. Management happily sent pots of coffee\milk\ bottles of wine up to our rooms at all hours. Bedrooms were gorgeous with amazing views & large dressing areas. Went to the median but wasn't very impressed. Went horse riding on the beach & did all the water sports they cost very little. The only thing we didn't try was the spa because the spa manager had a stinking attitude & was rude to us.More

One of the most memorable holidays I've had

A very belated review of this hotel. My wife and I stayed here in May 2014 for our anniversary and I have to say that it is a fantastic holiday destination. The surrounding area is not ideal if you like to wander of the hotel complex in the evenings, but if all you want is relaxation and good food and excellent service then this is the place to stay. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. Bathrooms had a bath, walk in shower and a separate toilet. Food was very good and plenty to choose from. Drinks were more than acceptable and mojitos recommended. The reason why this hotel is so great are the staff, from the manager to every cleaner, they provide service with a smile and carry out their jobs to extremely high standards. After the travel restrictions are lifted we will certainly be returning to this wonderful hotel, and I recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing break in the sun.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

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
