Riu Marillia  

The big news here is the duo of pools – they’re both huge. The beach is on the doorstep, too.

The Riu Marillia is on a sandy beach in peaceful Yasmine Hammamet. It’s around 10 minutes’ walk from the medina, and there are more shops and restaurants in the centre, about 15 minutes’ drive away.

The hotel’s biggest feature is the pool scene – there are 2 mammoth pools to choose from. You’ve got options on the dining front, too, with a buffet restaurant and à la carte Asian.

This hotel is a 'must try'

Seasoned travellers in Tunisia, this was our 5th visit. First impressions were not the best as on arrival, previous hotels have appeared more opulent. Don't be mislead, behind this exterior lies an excellent hotel. The rooms, the food, the hotel staff, the public areas are all of an excellent standard and the sum of the parts make it a desirable location. We are not travellers who regularly engage with animation staff. A bit here, a bit there has been our biggest involvement. Not here and you will see from previous reviews these guys are exceptional. There is an enthusiasm that can only come from really loving what you do. Fifi and the team really add to the holiday experience. In late Otober the hotel was only partly filled so what are you waiting for; get yourself over here and experience a great value for money holiday. Of course the hotel could do some small improvements to help themselves but quite honestly the good always outdid the not so good. You don't get perfection at budget holiday prices. We loved it.More

Great hotel and great staff

Had a great time at this hotel the staff are the best especially the entertainment team always speaking to you and very friendly . The rooms are very clean and are cleaned every day. The food is amazing cant complain about any of it and I am a fussy eater but there is always something for you to eat there. The drink is very weak but just ask for a double and they will give you it. The sunbeds were easily to get each day and the weather wasnt too bad either. The entertainment was funny they fo put on a great show from fie fie mario ma hair and sam they are a credit to this hotel. I would def go back to this hotel as all the staff are hardworking and friendly.More

good standard

Just returned (Oct 26) from a 2 week very enjoyable holiday at this hotel. I am disabled and travel with a mobility scooter and could access most parts of the hotel, the pool area to the beach is on one level and easily accessed. The animation team are first class and are the most friendly we have ever met, they are so full of energy and Fifi remembers every bodies name, what a marvellous memory. The hotel is well laid out kept wonderfully clean and the food is good, some dishes are repetitive but there are always lots of choices so you should never go hungry. The only downside we had was that the indoor pool was closed and only opening from November, it was a shame as the very large outdoor pool was freezing and the sea was warmer but a bit rougher.More

Everything great

Returned on the 23rd from this hotel it is hard to find anything negative about this hotel,from the moment we first stepped into the reception the staff were so pleasant and welcoming.The hotel was spotless as was our room the staff are cleaning all the time and ALL seem so happy You are allocated a table for dinner and it's yours for the rest of your stay,breakfast and lunch you just find a vacant one.Men must wear long trousers for dinner which is great ax the waiters are so smart,(funny how some people think smart is tracking bottoms and flip flops are evening attire). The food was a bit repetitive but plenty of choice,but when you are catering to the masses you can't please everyone,but with pasta,pizza,fish,beef,Turkey,chicken,lamb assorted vegetables and the most delicious chips and wonderful salads,if you can't find anything to eat you must be hard to please. Entertainment was except able but not outstanding. the animation team work very hard all day. There were plenty of sun beds around the pool and on the beach,probably because the hotel was only half occupied,we had great service in all departments. The only minus points we had was the air conditioning in our room did not work ,maintenance came immediately we asked and said we had it on the wrong setting but it still did not cool our room.There also seemed to be a lot of flys about,but that is not a fault of the hotel. We have travelled the world and have high standards and are reasonable people but we have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, we would most certainly go back again. The temperature was in the 30c what more could you ask for.More

Realy Great

Just got back 23 Oct had a great two weeks relaxing holiday the weather was really good the swimming pools are the largest I have seen in a hotel. The food was of a high standard ,as was ever thing else and I must mention the animation team who work very hard every day and who really try to make your holiday great . The only niggle we had was the check-in we arrived about midnight and struggled with our case up the steps could have done with a little help , saying that there is a ramp but could not see at that time of night.More
