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.

Excellent value for money
My wife and I stayed at Riu Marillia from 18th to 25th January 2015 and despite the cold weather, we had an excellent stay. The staff are very friendly including the reception staff, waiters, bar staff and cleaners but a special mention must go to the animation (entertainment staff). Mario, Sam, Ramsi and Mahair made it their personal responsibility to ensure every guest had a wonderful and memorable holiday and they certainly succeeded in my case. They made the activities fun, even the French boulles and archery which were done near the beach in very cold and windy conditions were enjoyable. Room was very clean and beds were extremely comfortable. Food was varied and of very good quality. We met many friendly people and enjoyed the shows, especially the cabaret show on Friday, which I participated in as Christina - a brilliant laugh and all my family have enjoyed the videoMore

We have just returned from a week long stay in the riu marillia in hammamet. First impressions on entering the hotel were good. Spotlessly clean with a fantastic view over the pools and sea. Staff were milling about constantly always ready with a smile and genuine greetings.... No robots here! The cleanliness was continued throughout the hotel, rooms bars terrace and pool area. Every day the same maid attended our room( except her one day off) and each day there would be a new decoration in our room, swans made from towels bows in net curtains lovely little touches,again always a friendly greeting . the animation team made a point of talking to each and every guest remembering every name and cajoling them into taking part in activities like skittles boules archery, aqua gym and aerobics. They also provided entertainment on an evening with the help of audience volunteers. Some funny nights had! The food was great quality and over 8 days I was never stuck for something to eat . however if you expect all English type meals you could be disappointed.... But if in Rome........! My partner celebrated his birthday here and without any prompting we were greeted at dinner with a table decorated with swan napkins and flowers scattered. They also provided a birthday cake , a violinist came to our table playing happy birthday while a group of waiters sang along! The worst part of our holiday was leaving! Would definitely recommend this hotel.for an added touch... Tip little and often ( we did 1 dinar each time) and they take notice when your glass is empty....it won't stay like that for long! More

Lovely people and hotel
The hotel was amazing very clean the cleaners are cleaning constantly. The staff are very polite and can not do enough for you with or without a tip. The animation team were my favourite they work so hard and long hours but are always happy (remember these when tipping as they deserve every penny) look out for ramzi and Sam they are crazyyy ð The food was really nice drinks are watered down though. I would return to the hotel for the people not the country itself There is litter everywhere some places are very run down. I did not feel safe outside the hotel as you are constantly being harassed by sellers some don't take no for a answer. This time of year there isn't a lot to do unless you go on trips everyday so can get very boring. More
