Hotel Riu El Mansour  

This hotel’s beachside setting is complemented by a big pool and a choice of places to eat.

White sands and blue water spool the coast just outside this hotel, so the sea views are first-class. About a 5-minute cab ride will get you to the heart of Mahdia, and there are shops and restaurants even closer.

There’s a spacious main pool. And, as well as a buffet, you’ll find a Tunisian à la carte and an Italian trattoria close to the sand. Activities range from aerobics to volleyball.

Saga Holiday

Nice friendly hotel with lots of different tour operators some German and also Russian. Plenty to choose from in the restaurant with fish most days but also meat dishes. Good sandy beaches straight outside the hotel. Pool quite spacious.More

Fantastic month in Mahdia

This was our second visit to this hotel, and everything was as good as before - wonderful welcome from reception, rooms comfortable, food fantastic. Wouldn't alter a thing - staff are all amazing, animation team great. If you are looking for a relaxing break, this hotel fits the bill. Looking forward to our next stay!More

First of all the transfer was a nightmare over 1 hour 40 mins the holiday rep was more interestered in her phone ( facebook ) than telling us about couple of tr the hotel we got here yes the hotel was nice and clean we were taking to our room , Room 335 we asked for a sea view which it did and looked over the pool it had a massive balcony, next day we met our rep Cheryl really nice she told us about the surrounding area and trips , the next day we book a couple of trips the roman collusem (sorry about spelling )and the pirate ship . there is nothing but the hotel in the surrounding area. We came out the hotel to see a old woman hitting a poor donkey with a massive stick a felt sick to my stomach . most the time we spent around pool , Meal are ok but on night time you are gaving a table number we got 141 . first trip was good , but we it come to to the pirate ship the staff got dressed up as pirates taking photos with us and them then a couple of minutes they came round with a baby sparrow hawk which a had my photo taken with it it was not till after photo was taken a noticed it wings had been cut so it could not fly off :-( a was shocked but even more shock when everyone had it done it was just throwen into a cupboard not bigger than a shoebox and right beside the BBQ which was red hot . then when we got back to to hotel we went to the entertainment show on fire eating show was going ok till they brought a snake out got it out of bag it was clearly dead the staff then started puching down on its body to wake it up then pushing down on it head ( animal cruelty) the staff said it was sleeping ,they then took it off and to my supprise brought a baby monkey with a Nappy and a chain round it neck !!!! the poor thing was scared stiff as for the nappy that was so it did not do it poo or wee on any one as they asked if any one wanted any photos with all the english walked off they kepted dragging it from one person to another . as for the the rest of the entertainment staff all week they did not bother with my step son it was just the young girls and older lasses , it was not till a was on the plane home that a figured out what they were doing it the way they touched the young girls and lasses it was grooming a felt sick a letter has gone to the travel company about please for the sake of you family DO NOT GO HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!More

Fantastic stay!

Just returned from a week long stay at this hotel and if relaxation is what you're after then this is perfect! The bus transfer time is a bit of a pain and some of the sights of poverty are eye opening but it's worth it for the location-beautiful beach and crystal clear sea where the sound of waves crashing echoes around the grounds of the hotel. We arrived at 1am and were offered something to eat and drink which was greatly appreciated and felt very welcome from the start. Our room was on the top floor with a sea/pool view and was really lovely. Housekeeping and all the cleaning staff around the hotel do a fantastic job. The main restaurant was light and airy and the choice of food catered for everyone. We throughly enjoyed every meal. The pool is lovely and the whole area is very clean. The bar is open from 10am and the staff are very friendly. There was a great atmosphere during the day with the animation team playing music and having fun with the guests, however, there were one or two of the team who seemed to take it personally if you preferred not to get involved and it made us feel uncomfortable at times. The evening entertainment is also conducted by the animation team and leaves a lot to be desired! Luckily the terrace bar is a lovely setting for evening drinks and with a deck of cards to hand we enjoyed many a night up there. Again the bar staff are lovely and know what your drink is despite serving hundreds of guests! Tipping the staff is the key to a truly relaxing stay here-for the equivalent of a few pounds it's well worth it and the level of service is excellent once you have done this. If the evening entertainment had been better and more varied I would have given this hotel an 'excellent' rating as it truly deserves it otherwise. More



Went first week of October 2014. Couldn't fault the hotel or the staff, extremely helpful and friendly. A wide choice on the menu, good food. Spar and massage was a treat. Done the jet ski and quad biking - what an experience :) I have to say that Aymen and his animation team made the holiday for us, would have been too relaxing without them, they activities throughout the day which catered for all ages from tots to extremely mature (elderly) lol. They were fantastic. This was my second visit, I would definitely return and highly recommend it if you are seeking a relaxing holiday . Our ages were between 16 - 50 and we all thoroughly enjoyed.More
