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.

This hotel was perfect for our needs, great location with walking distance to the shops, left the hotel everday for a stroll along to the local shops or along the beach felt very safe and relaxed. Our room was fine, immaculately clean with a comfortable bed. The whole hotel was very clean. The food was brilliant, lots of choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all fresh and tastey. Enjoyed the salad section very much, so much to chooce from, lots of differnt dressings ect at both lunch and dinner. The service we recieved from all areas of the hotel, reception, bar, restraunt ect was all consistently great. It was my birthday whilst there and our waiter was great, I got a suprise bear shaped pancake at breakfast then our everning table was decorated with pretty flowers and I recieved a cake too. The animation team were great fun, remebering your names and always stopping for a chat but not at all pushy if you dont want to join in, all very nice and friendly guys. Overall this is a great hotel, excellent value, brilliant food and service that always exceeded our expectations. We really like Hammamet and Tunisia and will continue to come back year after year, we visit many other countries, and the service we recieve from hotels in these other countries has never topped how we are treated here.More

Our stay at this hotel
The hotel is first class. The room we stayed in was clean, spacious with a wonderful view out to sea. The housemaid who looked after our room did some exceptional things with the towels, bedcovers and curtains (a very talented young lady). All the hotel staff were attentive, the reception , restaurant and bar staff could not do any more than they did for us, first class. A special mention must go the the Animation ( entertainment ) staff who were really outstanding and really made the holiday more enjoyable, an extra special mention must go to RAMZY who is as daft as a brush but such a lovely young man. One small suggestion might be that they put tea/coffee facilities in the rooms.More

Great hotel,and staff , everything kept spotless from pool ,bars toilets and bedrooms Fifi and his team where brilliant always smiling and marketing everyone feel special The bar staff where great always there when your glass was empty with a refillMore
We traveled with our two children aged 17 and 20 returning 3rd Dec - Had an excellent time. No issues through Enfidha Airport and then just a short journey to Hotel. Hotel was excellent - Staff extremely friendly and helpful in the bar,restaurant and reception you genuinely felt they couldn't do enough to help you. Entertainment was provided all day and FiFi,Ramzi,Sam and Maher worked hard to include everyone - Plenty to do during the day and something going on every evening. The hotel was spotless and you would constantly see teams of staff cleaning and polishing something. Outdoor pool was a bit chilly at this time of year but the indoor one was lovely. Weather was warm though with only 2 days out of the 14 where the sun didn't shine. Food was good - something for everyone each night and plenty of new things to try. My husband and the children went quad biking which they really enjoyed and we took a taxi to old Hammamet which had plenty to see. I had been a bit nervous about going to Tunisia but we had a fab time here and I will be booking the same two weeks next year as excellent value for money .More

Excellent hotel for the money
Stayed at the Riu Marillia 23/11/14 for a week , I can honestly say I couldn't grumble about anything. From arriving to check in the reception staff were great, the room was quite modern and very clean. Restaurant ,food and service very good, bar service and staff again wanting to give excellent service. The animation team were probably the best team we have ever met, Fifi and his staff are the best, always smiling and giving their time to guests. Celine the Thomsons rep was again one of the most helpful reps I have come across, anything you need to know she is there to give advice, please go to her meeting as she gives you some excellent tips. There is 2 dogs on the beach one male and a female dog called Sandy, she is beautiful, me and my Husband used to feed her every day, we also fed the other dog but he wouldn't come up to you and if you put it down for him and walk away he would then eat it (please keep feeding them ) One tip I would give would be to pay for the VIP lounge going home, the queues can be very long and if you use the VIP lounge there is no queuing for anything. We had a lovely holiday at the Marillia and definitely would return.More
