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.

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

Nice and clean.
Mahdia it is a city in Tunisia that one must visit because of its sea. The water is so clear. Moreover, Mahdi a has a cemetery on the shore which is in no way terrifying, on the contrary it adds to the charm of the city. I recommend Rio El Mansour hotel because it has the option of all inclusive and the food is fine. The hotel has a nice swimming pool. There are many activities and by night there is an effort to please the guests. I visited this hotel many time accompanied with children who really had fun. I hope that this comment is useful to whoever wants to visit Mahdia.More
We went to Tunisia for a relaxing holiday and we got just that. would I go again ? No. Bored after abou two days th entertainment in the evening was terrible, there is nothing around outside to go to either so we were in bed by 11 every night. There is nothing wrong with the actual hotel but it should really just advertise for older people.More

This is very nice hotel, rooms , serviice and staff excellent, BUT this hotel is let down by the food and area. The hotel is situated on a undeveloped site with building site opposite . There is a local bus stop opposite and a short trip to Mahdia centre which is an interesting town, with local market on Fridays and some interesting shops and cafes. The hotel caters mainly for Germans and even though dinner in winter is from 6,30 to 9.00 there is very little left if one wishes to dine 7.30 and not replenished. The pastries are hard and most food swimming in oil. Very few green vegetables, apart from cabbage. The salad bar has shredded lettuce together with shredded radish! I have stayed in other Tunisian hotel and the food surpasses this hotel. It has put me off Tunisia. .More
