This luxury hotel comes with a huge pool and à la carte dining. And it has a great spot on the beach.
The pool is the standout feature of this deluxe hotel. It’s huge, and set between manicured gardens and a sandy beach. Dining is another highlight. There are 2 restaurants, with special mention going to the Tunisian à la carte.
The hotel is just steps from a vast, golden-sand beach. It’s in a quiet area, but there’s a bus stop a couple of minutes’ walk away. From here you can be in central Port el Kantaoui in less than 10 minutes.
With 7 massage rooms available you're bound to get a massage at the start, middle or end of your holiday. All rooms are comfortable and the spa staff will make sure you have a personalised service. If treatments aren’t your thing then you're welcome to use the other facilities such as the 2 saunas, indoor pool and beauty salon.
Help yourself to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Expect hot and cold plates, plus there are cooking stations creating fresh dishes, themed evenings twice a week and a dessert selection at lunch and dinnertime.
we arrived in the evening of the 2nd of oct for 2 weeks, we paid extra for a sea view, only to find that the sea view was only available if you stood up on the balcony but if you sat down you were looking directly into the balconies of the next hotel The toilet flush didn't work proplery. I asked for a change of room but was told hotel was full, but they might be able to in a couple of days, this didn't happen due to a thunderstorm and torrents of rain flooded the lower ground floor, during the first week there was a stomach bug rife throughout the hotel. The air conditioning didn't work in the public area's so very uncomfortable during diner. We have visited this hotel 3 times before and the food has gone down in quality, we were the only ones to notice this and for a platinum hotel it is very poor, we were going back next summer but have changed our mind as we will not go back at all. As an riu member i will also send a copy of this to them.More

Great staff, Shame about food.
We stayed here for 11 nights.
Our room was fab and a really decent size, we had a view of the car park but that's because we wasn't bothered about paying more for a sea view.
The staff were SO friendly, the best we've staff we've had and the hotel was always clean.
The beach was lovely and the towel guys were fab.
Not so good:
Food was VERY repetitive, I know it's hard but this is the first place we've been where there was chips everyday, we've been on a quiet a few all inclusive and this was by far the worst, also the drinks were very watered down.
The evening entertainment was also pretty boring, but I'm sure it's hard to please everyone.
I would defiantly recommend for 1 week break, for us 11 nights was a little too much.
Weather was fab.More
Good hotel (was)???
We have been to this hotel three time now the first was in September 2010 for two weeks absolutely fabulous,the next was in September 2012 similar experience,and then this year we checked in on 21st September till the 5th October and can't believe that the hotel has changed so much.
No air conditioning took three attempts to fix it,problems with toilet flush & seat, and the major problem was cold food in the main restrauntaunt other than that we had a good two weeks.More

Arrived the 1/10/14 and had to wait 3 hours for our room. It was good when we got it and kept clean throughout the holiday. The rep was good and poolside and public areas kept clean. But there was no air con in any public area or in the dining hall which made it really hot and humid. Food variety was limited although the omelettes were freshly cooked and the scrambled egg great at breakfast. Hotel closed the poolside snacks the second day there, not sure if it was because of the time of year or the bad outbreak of sickness that was about. On closer inspection rooms were a little tired and overall didn't think it warranted platinum rating. Biggest issue was the tax stamp needed to return home, couldn't buy them anywhere although we were told hotel would have them .we tried right up until the night before leaving and they still didn't have them. Also a Visa card needs to be filled in on arrival into the country and these were not given out on the plane so you need to find them in the airport on arrival, make sure you keep the bottom part that is returned to you at passport control as you need it for the journey home. Entertainment was okMore

Staff were great.
We stayed for 11 nights at the hotel and the best thing I can say about this hotel is that the staff were amazing the next we've ever had and we've been away quiet a bit, they were so friendly and helpful, couldn't do enough for you.
The hotel itself is great, right by the beach which is lovely to lay on. Our room was facing the car park but this was fine as we weren't bothered about a sea view as never in the room. It was very spacious and the maid done a good job, we have her a tip twice but she was always friendly to us.
The entertainment wasn't that good but we were happy to play cards and chill.
Now the downsides:
Food is VERY repetitive - chips chips chips, I know it's hard with an all inclusive to have variety but all the other places we've been to have, they have "theme" nights in the restaurant but this basically means thy dress up not theme food.
The drinks are VERY watered down and the beer was horrible, not too happy about that but we survived.
We went to the Port and that we lovely, we had a gorgeous meal at La Mediterranean - would recommend and be tale of 3 cities was great, learned loads and saw some great things,
I'd say Tunisia is worth a visit and great as it is only a 2.5 he flight but we won't go again mainly as we don't return to the same place, Riu Bellevue is a good hotel more like a 3* but it was fine for what we wanted.More
