Firstly, the hotel itself is very nice. You're met by a huge marble filled lobby, friendly and welcoming staff and a lovely clean environment. The room was clean and presentable. We found a few issues throughout our stay though, the main one being the air conditioning, it is very poor. The rooms electrics are cut once you leave, so the... More

Our first time to Tunisia and we will definitely be back! Short flight time makes it very appealing. Transfer time from the Airport to the hotel was about 40 mins. There were a couple of drop offs on the way. On arrival at the hotel we were given a drink and quickly checked in and given details about dinner and... More

Just got back from a 2 week fantastic holiday. Hotel was beautiful, rooms were great, very clean. Staff were great, full of smiles and couldn't do enough to help. Craig our rep was amazing, a credit to Thomson. So helpful and took time to talk to you individually. Food was plentiful, how people can say it was bland is beyond... More

So, as the title suggests the hotel is not a five star. Think more three star plus and you will be close. I booked this Holiday after consulting Trip Advisor and thinking 'wow, number two....must be great!'. All i Can say is I would hate to think what the other hotels are like, if this is number two. I am... More

The actual look of the hotel was lovely and spotlessly clean! Our room was cleaned everyday and was always tidy. We were told that our mini fridge would be stocked daily, as long as we asked for this to happen before 12midday, which we done on several occasions and did not happen once. After this we just collected our own... More

Stayed at the Riu Imperial Marhaba for our honeymoon between 10th and 17th of August. On having various drop offs before reaching our hotel we were truly taken back by how gorgeous the hotel was. It was the best of all hotels we had seen when exploring. Having arrived at the hotel two and a half hours after getting through... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in mid July for 11 nights. On arrival, we really loved the entrance to the hotel. Check in was quick and painless and we were given a lovely drink (not quite sure what it was). We liked our room and had paid extra for a sea view. I would really recommend this... More

Let me start by saying there is nothing major wrong with this hotel, my partner and I just found it lacking a bit of personality. The hotel itself is fabulous, marble and glass elevators look brilliant. We were on the fourth floor with a front facing balcony. The wifi was brilliant and we didn't mind having a front facing room... More
