Hotel Riu Imperial Marhaba  

This grand beachside hotel makes an impression with its big pool and gourmet restaurants.

The pool is the first thing that’ll strike you about this hotel – it’s big and framed by glossy palms. Then there’s the dining scene – the restaurant line-up includes a great trattoria and an Asian place.

Walk through the manicured gardens and you’ll come to the white-sand beach. You’ve got shops just a few minutes’ walk away, too, and it’s a 10-minute cab ride to the marina at Port el Kantaoui.

A pleasant surprise

This is the first time we have done an all inclusive holiday as we have steered clear of them in the past. This hotel had lots to offer with food and drink basically on offer throughout the day. There was a wide range of food so any dietary need could be met and the option to eat healthily was always there. There are also lots of activities to keep you busy and to work those calories off, there is an indoor and outdoor pool and a gym. The hotel is a little bit away from the port but is within walking distance with either a nice walk along the beach to the port or down a road which has touristy shops on it. You can walk straight out from the hotel onto the beach which in the summer must be lovely. All the staff were friendly and welcoming.More

Great Chill!

We're just back from a fantastic stay here, you'd be hard pressed to fault this hotel, every member of staff gives guests 100% attention..from the maids to the management. There is a great sense of pride about the place; rooms are comfortable and spacious, we had great Wifi reception too! The range of food is amazing, even fussy eaters would find enjoyable choices. We were out and about lots and the shared taxi's (louages) are brilliant, 1 Dinar fare (40p) into the Port or a couple of Dinars into Sousse, good fun with a bit of culture thrown in. Train into Monastir is soo easy too, again 1 Dinar each way, a great afternoon doing a bit of sightseeing. Thompsons rep Lisa was a star, so informative/helpful and always around. A special mention also for Omar Ben, a waiter who works 100 miles an hour and still manages to entertain the guests on route, flying about with a tray full of 🍹🍷🍸We'll definitely be back xxMore

Fleminpie,

Excellent

A beautiful hotel. The staff is really warm and welcoming! They are so polite and helpful, they always smile! We come often in Tunisia and this place (and moreover the people working in this place) made our stay really great! They've totally understood the meaning of a hotel staff (warm, welcoming, helpful, from the directors to the cleaning ladies). They've made our stay perfect. (Moez at the reception desk, Redha the chief of the bar, Majida and Abdelaziz in the restaurant, and all the others). Thanks a lot!More

Great Hotel in Tunisia

We had a lovely time the hotel was superb the room was spacious and clean two big beds and a lovely view of the beach, the hotel inside was lovely with four glass elevators and a large lobby. The indoor pool was spacious but the jacuzzi was freezing cold (unusual) The beach was sandy and went on for miles in either direction. The buffet was quite good finding something to eat every day not bad for non european standards. The only entertainment that was useful to us was the boules and darts, the evening entertainment was not good. Not much to visit around the area so we did walk a lot along the beach. Would love to go back and probably will one day. Wonderful value for money.More

We'll Be Back

This was a bit of a last minute trip and wasn't sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. As has been mentioned before, the staff are the hotel's big selling point, everyone of them - gardeners, maids, bar/restaurant staff, reception staff always had a smile, a welcoming "hello" and always happy to help. A very good team. The hotel itself looks quite opulent on first impression, glass chandeliers, glass lifts, marble flooring, grand piano, all very welcoming. The rooms are a tad small, but well equipped, very comfy and we were impressed by the storage space - from the number of hangers in the wardrobe to the amount of drawers (and we were able to get wifi in the room, which was a bonus). The food was nice, usually always piping hot and fresh and not too repetitive. The lobby bar is split into two - a smoking and non-smoking area (but even the smoking area isn't smoky due to the high ceilings and big spaces). There is also a very pleasant and large area just outside of the bar (which I'm guessing would be very busy in the summer). The hotel was very quiet (but it was early January) and there was more than enough seating / sunbeds / tables for everyone, although I'm not sure what this would be like in the middle of summer. There are shops not far from the hotel, but the marina and shopping area in Port El Kantaoui is a fair hike away (although taxis are reasonably cheap). A very short transfer time (30 mins) from Enfidha airport, a short flight (3 hours tops) from the UK make Tunisia one of our favourite places for a quick getaway, and we would certainly come back to this hotel and highly recommend it.More
