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 two 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.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of May beginning of June ,after reading some of the reviews we were a little unsure of what to expect.we had a fantastic time .our room was very spacious and spotless . we had a small balcony but this didn't bother us as we don't spend that much time in our room .we were very close to the pool and beach which was lovely as we spend most of our day at one or the other .we could not fault the pool guys who were very friendly and "Mr Happy " brighten our day , we paid them 10dinar (Â£3appox)a day to keep us prime sun beds .there were many sunbeds free no matter what time of day but sun umbrella s were hard to come by . All the staff from the cleaners to managers went out of their way to speak to you always checking that you had everything you needed. The food was always lovely and hot and we never had any trouble finding something to eat whether it be the poolside or the main restaurant.the only thing we found it would have been nice to have had savoury snacks between 3-5 pm instead of only cake and pancakes a minor detail .yes the drinks were not very strong but if you are unable to drink enough between the hours of 10 am -11pm that's very sad !!!. This was our 1st visit to Tunisia and even in light of the very tragic events of the last few days we would visit again and stay at the fantastic hotel !!!!More
Amazing staff we owe our lives to.
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights only befor the terror attack. The pool man and hotel staff who stopped the gunman coming up into the hotel were so brave! The food and rooms were lovely! Feel so sorry for the staff due to events that happend but the hotel staff deserve to have a lovely life and need a medal!More

great hotel and amazing people
Before I write this review I must say how much I admire the people of Tunisia and especially the animation team and others who put their lives at risk to try and protect the holiday makers and also to all members of the staff who were so appalled at what had occured many of whom were in tears. I was close enough to hear all the gunfire but didn't see anything other than the staff going in what I regarded as the wrong direction. Now a review of the hotel and i'm not going to mention the staff as my first paragraph says it all. The hotel itself is in a great spot and although there are a few niggles Iam ignoring them. the bed was very comfortable and room spacious with plenty of storage space and fittings in bathroom worked well as did the air conditioning. the reception area is magnificent and although I said I wouldn't mention the staff I have to say how pleasant the reception staff were and all staff would do anything to help and with a smile. The pool and gardens,sunbeds and pool bar and restraunt are all in good condition and well looked after and you could always get a bed and matress and towels were free to all inclusive clients. Food is good with massive amount of choice so you could be sure to find something you like and my favourite melon was always available.Coffee is strong so I had to make sure I had plenty of milk. I know after all thats happened the hotel and the staff are going to suffer and I can only wish them luck and happiness and know they have my greatest respect. God bless you allMore

Devastation in such a beautiful country
I don't think words can express what i have just experienced. The staff were amazing. Some of the friendliest in the world. Thompson were brilliant getting us out straight away. I cannot praise the reps enough. I can't think i would ever be able to return.More

Great hotel - typical riu
Spent two weeks here in June and really enjoyed the stay. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the staff work tirelessly all day and night. Our room was on the top floor ( 3rd ) right in the middle of the hotel with a lovely view of the pool and sea. The balcony was quite small but adequate and the room itself was nice, with a large comfortable double bed. The separate toilet and bathroom were very clean and functional but some people with mobility issues may struggle getting into the shower since it involves a high step into the bath. The wifi in our room was very good but could be a bit hit and miss around the rest of the hotel. The pool area is well laid out with sun beds available at any time of the day but expect to be up early for the best spots. The pool guys are really good and genuinely friendly as are the animation team. We have travelled to many riu hotels and would say these are the best team we have ever seen. They run numerous activities throughout the day but are not overly intrusive if you don't want to get involved and are there just to relax. Meal times are typical riu and the standard of food is very good with a good variety on offer. Overall I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, the only issue we had was the lack of air con in our room, which seems to be a common problem but other than that we absolutely loved our stay.More
