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.

Truly excellent in every way

We stayed here as a couple in January 2014, excellent rates just over a grand for 2 wks. booked quite late, weather 24 degrees average, hotel service and facilities absolutely faultless, just what we needed. We went on a few trips, 2 days to the Sahara, which was great( take a hotel pillow for your comfort on the bus!) various villages, don't waste your time on local souk trips to hammamet or port el kantoui, just jump in a cab, much cheaper and easier. The Atlas mountains trip was really good too and food was top notch. All in all for the time of year and the rate that we paid, excellent value for money, excellent service, absolutely nothing was any bother for the management to sort for you, WiFi was a bit hit and miss in the rooms, but other people said it was ok. Anyhow it was ok in the foyer outwith peak evening browsing times. I'd definitely stay again. The surrounding area was the usual Tunisia, still being developed on a major scale, but adjacent to the hotel itself, no noise, no construction, we really think after talking to other guests on our transfer to the airport and after walking into other hotels in the local area that we stayed in the best hotel available in the area.More

Better than it's namesake

This has got to be the best hotel in the area. We have stayed here several times and can't wait for the next visit. We can find no fault whatsoever with this hotel. You may be tempted by the Kenz next door, which is marginally cheaper, but after staying in both hotels at least once, the Imperial Maharba really does have the edge.More

What a lovely hotel.

Stayed here this week with a group of friends (6of us in total) what a lovely hotel. Walking into the reception/ lobby area was mind blowing. The rooms were lovely and clean. The staff not sure where to start: Restaurant - fantastic service every evening. 2 sittings for dinner we went to the 8pm one. Good was always plentiful and a lot of choice the waiting staff were excellent by the 3rd evening there was no need to order drinks they were on the table waiting for you. The napkin trucks they had for us were amazing and hilarious :) Bar - again lovely service always friendly staff and always making sure you had a drink in front of you. No need to order as they remember what you're drinking. Maids - the regular maid we had was lovely always a smile and a hello and a good clean of the room everyday. Although it must have been her day off and we had another maid and I went back to my room to find my purse open, thankfully nothing was missing. Animation team - bug praise to these guys they try so hard to engage everyone in the activities. Big shout out to Nino who gave us plenty of entertainment every day with a bit of banter :) All in all lovely hotel didn't need/ want to leave the hotel can't wait to return in may! :) More


fantastic holiday

if you want a chill out holiday this hotel is great. we went here for my 50th birthday & was not disappointed, the hotel staff was brill from the cleaners to the management. all very friendly & could,nt do enough for us. the waiters gave me a bouquet of roses & a cake & sang "happy birthday" which I thought was a lovely thought. the hotel was very clean & the food was nice although it seamed to be the same thing most nights but a lot of variety, catering for all type of people. we wasn't much for the entertainment in the animation room so we stayed outside most nights with the weather been so nice. we must say a big thank you to the 3 people who made our holiday fab. omar, latiffa & baby Ronaldo.More

Absoloutely faultless

The best hotel i've ever been to. Can't even be put into words how much of an amazing holiday i had. All the staff are wonderful, so helpful and friendly. They all made the holiday what it was and the entertainment staff just topped it off with how polite, friendly and funny they were. They always make sure everyone is ok and are having a good time.More
