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.

Recent Stay with Bridge players
This is an excellent hotel with efficient and friendly staff. We stayed there for 4 weeks(including Christmas and New Year) and the whole experience was a delight. The restaurant manager and waiters were wonderful as were the bar staff and I cannot praise the standard of service enough.The hotel itself is beautifully designed and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. A really enjoyable experience for the whole of the holidayMore

Far from the airport but worth the travel!
Stayed here on a last minute break with my partner in May 2014, booked through Thomson. Hotel is a fair distance from the airport; transfer was in a bit of a rickety mini bus and was a little ropey driving through some of the areas with armed police on the roundabouts and rubbish in the streets. However once we arrived at the El Mansour we were extremely happy! Given a very refreshing lemon drink whilst we waited for our room to be ready, sat in the beautiful lobby where wifi was free. As it was last minute booking our room was on the ground floor, but was well maintained and extremely clean. The hotel is located right on the beach with one deep pool close to the main building where we tended to sit - suitable for doing lengths (was a little cool getting in, had lots of fun jumping in and was fine once you were in!), and another pool underneath this where the activities took place during the day. This was my first ever all-inclusive holiday and boy did I make the most of it! Drinks and crepes and light lunches were available from the pool bar which opened around 11am each day. Meals in the buffet restaurant were good; and oh my goodness the chips! They were like a drug! Good selection of food; could get boring if you have the same thing every meal but there was enough variety day on day to mix it up a bit. Always hot food, salads, and loads of desserts on offer. Really loved the Tunisian food available in the evenings too. We went on a pirate boat trip which was really fun (jumping off the boat into the Mediterranean was an amazing moment!), quad biking around the salt lake which was near by and a trip to the amphitheatre at El Djem, which is unmissable. The staff including the animation team were friendly, good at selling their trips and spa treatments without being too pushy and overall we had a great time.More

Another really good Hotel from RIU, very nice Holiday
Hotel is defo 4 star. We was there in June 2014 for 14 nights, lovely weather, very nice people working there,food was fabulous, drinks was nice but not Riu standard. We was meet some nice people which was made our holiday even better. Hotel is around 2,5h travel from airport so in long way. Swim pool lovely, very nice beach. If you love animals don't go to any travel through short with bold head guy, which is walking round hotel and looking for earn easy money on you, he got stand point around entry to beach. We was on camel ride through this guy and was DISGUSTING experience, never forever again. But this was just weak point this hotel, rest was in very good standard, So if long transport from airport is not problem for You we recommend this place.More
The great hotel <3
RIU el Mansour Hotel, is a so great 4 stars hotel, if you travels a lot in Tunisia you would see that this hotel is an international 4 stars hotel, while most of 5 stars hotels in Tunisia doesn't deserve a 3 stars! The best thing in the hotel is the staff, they are very friendly and the hotel localed in the city, near to everything, foods everyday different, the drinks are so good and you ger served fast The animation team was so professional by the pool there was always a place to love and chill, the beach is so clean, i would give 5 stars to the best Hotel in Mahdia <3 and i will come back !More

First time in Tunisia
Our first time in Tunisia. What a place of conflicting emotions, Beautiful airport at Enfidha and a lovely welcome form the Saga rep (Wadhiya). Journey to the hotel was to Madhia which is about one and a halfhours away. the journey was interesting although long and gave us an impression of the countryside. Just full of Olive trees (they reputedly have 70 million in the country)and sheep and shepherds. Motorway for halfway and rough roads the rest of the way, but we had an extremly good and safe driver. There is a lot of rubbish all over the place as they have had no 'council elections' for a long time after the uprising. Thus there is no organisation like a council responsible for the sort of thing that keeps a community running. This will change at the end of the month with the elections to take place. The hotel is very clean,well positioned near a long stretch of beach and has lots of facilities. The chief asset is the people in the hotel, they are first class, the waiters are attentive, Animation staff forever organising, and everyone seems to want to talk to you. It is very relaxing in the public areas with unlimited coffees and tea on offer. If you are a Premiership football fan you can watch to your hearts content all the matches live on MECCA TV with Andy Gray etc. The food is good without being fantastic, plenty to choose from but a bit repetitive, hoever there is one thing on the menu that is world class, the chips, best you will ever taste, and that was the opinion of many guests! Some people were there for up to 6 weeks , I would be pushed to find enough things to do for that time (plus all the chips I would have to eat). But the hotel is well worth a visit Visit the mosaic museum in El Jem and also the colliseum they both very impressive. Shopping is cheap if you can find your way through the maze of cheap tat. Smoking is ridicously cheap although I dont smoke. The pool is enormous and they have a Spa that was not well used. Get a room that overlooks the pool, if you want sun on the balcony you need the right hand side for morning and left hand side for evenings, the middle is a bit hit and miss. You get much better service if you tip, Just 1 or 2 dinars does the trick (30p/60p)More
