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 two mammoth pools to choose from. You’ve got options on the dining front, too, with a buffet restaurant and à la carte Asian.

another excellent visit to this hotel
this was our second visit to this hotel & we were welcomed with open arms, as we are Riu members we were upgraded to a wonderful suite, the staff were all as welcoming as they were the last time we were here, the food was great as well, everything was perfect except for the strong winds on a regular basis, the entertainment was indoors in the conference room due to the weather. we were going to book to go this September, but due to the atrocity which happened after we returned home we are unable to do so, but we are planning on going again in April 2016. All the hotels we have stayed in in Tunisia (9) have all been most welcoming & will need our visits to keep their tourist industry going, The management & staff at Riu Marillia are all devastated by this recent tragedyMore
An ok riu
Quite difficult to write a review on this hotel as we were there at the time of the atrocities at Sousse the hotel and grounds were immaculate very clean and tidy,the swimming pool although cleaned regularly the steps and sides could do with a good scrub which we have seen at a lot of hotels.As the hotel was emptying rapidly there was no atmosphere which is not a problem of the hotel,the Asian restaurant was closed,the lovely snack restaurant for lunch was closed and less than a quarter of the restaurant was set up and open.The meals we noticed were going downhill at a fast rate the choice was greatly reduced and the food was quite often not hot.The staff was typical RIU friendly,happy and always so helpful even though a lot and I mean A LOT of them we're being laid off and told to Come back in a months time after Ramadam as they were hoping to have a lot of Tunisians etc coming in.So as I say a difficult review to write all I can say is thanks to all the staff and I hope things improve for Tunisia and bring the tourists back.More

This hotel was spotless, modern, wonderful staff and good food with wonderful beach and plentiful sun loungers with activities all day provided by a wonderful animation team who also put on a show in the evening. The holiday was all-inclusive and is a perfect holiday venue. My friends and I do want to return to this hotel in the futureMore

Amazing, fantastic hotel
Me and my husband stayed here for two weeks ( cut short due to the terrorist attack) we can not fault the hotel, very clean, fantastic staff, food was very good . Rooms cleaned every day and made animals out of towels each day on your bed, the pool area very clean and friendly, pool bar very good and staff will make cocktails for you even they are not the list, round the corner from the pool bar you can get water and coffee/tea before the bar opened at 10.00 each day, the beach is great a few people selling things but a firm no and they didn't bother again. The bar on the lobby on an evening was a great atmosphere and the bar staff very friendly and Adel was brilliant every night very funny guy!!!! Animation team work very hard games alday and the night time was ok but not to the normal Rui standard compared to other Riu hotels. Jamie the Thomson rep he is fantastic always round the hotel asking if your ok, if you ask him anything it gets onto it straight away and has an answer for you within the hour if not sooner, unfortunately we did have the attack in Tunisia while we was there but the hotel staff and manager kept everyone at ease (as much they you could be at ease) and Jamie the rep worked fantastically keeping everyone up to date with information on the situation, a credit to you Jamie and I hope Thomson appreciate what you do. We really feel for the Tunisians and my heart goes out to you all,More

First class hotel
This is an amazing hotel, very clean and spotless with amazing staff.... beach is literally a 10 second walk from the pool area and there was always plenty of sunbeds. The food was really good, I am a non meat eater and there was always a wide variety of fish and vegetables etc.... rooms are kept very clean and all of the staff from the moment we arrived were friendly and could not do enough for us to make our holiday special. I would definately recommend.... There is free wifi in the reception/bar area which is very good... the hotel is quite large and spread over a large area so if you have problems with walking etc i would suggest you request a room nearer to the reception as ours was quite a long walk down several corridors, no problems for us but worth mentioning if you had stick etc...More
