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.

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
Don't be put off by the local area - the hotel is excellent
Spacious rooms - we had wanted a sea view but were told none available when we booked with Saga, but on arrival, without asking, we were taken to one with a view over the pool to the sea - at no additional cost. Our room was on the ground floor adjacent to the large reception area/lounge which could be noisy occasionally but not really a problem for us. Restaurant is down a flight of stairs or by lift - which also take you to the outside at the rear i.e. the pool, gardens and beach. Watch out the marble flooring outside can be slippery especially early morning when there is dew about. Food in the buffet style restaurant excellent, always piping hot as there are cooking stations always in use. Speial Tunisian food available most days although the separate restaurant not open after end of October. Very friendly and helpful staff, all of whom spoke English.apart from one or two waiters. Walk into the medina takes about 50 mins to one hour along the beach or by the promenade. There is rubbish about on the streets but you must accept that there has been no municipal government since the uprising in 2011 and services are just beginning to get going.More

Good and nice hotel for holidays!
It's a good hotel, equivalent or superior to 4* portuguese hotel.The spaces were always impeccably clean. The staff is truly attentive, without the need to give tipping to do their service. Obviously they thank one tipping as anywhere in tunisia. The food is fresh, with very quality and quite varied. There are themed dinners throughout the week and live cooking every day. There are also European and local food. For or younger and beyond, there are plenty of daily activities, such as Arabic writing course. On the beach there are beds with exclusive use to hotel guests and safety on the beach. For those who want to do the expedition to the Sahara desert this hotel has a good location (better than hotels north). It is approximately 2-3 hours of TunisâCarthage Airport.More

We visited the El Mansour in Mahdia from 1/10/14 to 12/11/14,as a group of 4, my wife, our daughter & husband, we arrived late evening at the hotel around 9pm after a 2 hour transfer from Enfidah airport, on arrival our bags where dealt with quickly as we ate an evening meal prompted by the reception staff who over the stay did a great job of dealing with any queries we had,and that was not many, our rooms where quietly placed on the garden side of the hotel, space was plentyfull in the room, my only comment was the lack of drawer space, serviced every day, water was supplied on request from reception, although a 20 yr old hotel it was well maimtained, all the staff made the stay a comfortable stay, the waiters in particular got to know you quickly and your needs were anticipated in advance even before you knew you needed another drink. entertainment was provided by a small team who soon found out if you would play the games and added your name as a matter of course, the beach was a bit away from the main complex and was limited for spaces if you got to it after 7.30am. The food was excellent all being prepared and cooked in front of you from various work stations, each evening you had a nominated table which saved all the searching before looking what food you would choose, mornings and lunch was was find a space then eat, we found by waiting until the main rush had passed it was easier to find a table, overall the hotel was well run and nothing was too much trouble to sort, towels where supplied each day from reception by friendly and willing staff. we found that an exit fee was payable from the 1st of October of 30 dnr, this hotel had the stamp, many did not as we found on our return to the airport which is another very bad story, we had an early departure & pick up at 5.45 am the hotel privided a good continental option of cereal , coffee and various breads. our journey was 1hr 45 to the airport passing Monastair airport in just 45 mins. This new airport is new but wrong in design, because of the new tax long lines of people mixed in with people trying to do currency exchange, it took 1.5 hrs from arriving to get through passport into duty free, long lines of people trying to find some food, this left only 20mins to eat and board the plane, no duty free shopping, also 2 x10oz glasses of beer Â£10. in conclusion they break did what it was planned for but the airport experience and transfer time where totally unacceptable, and Monastair airport should be re enstated as the preferred arrival point for this area of TunisiaMore
