    the food is excellent and the service in the restaurant first class. However, the beds are like boards and not at all what you would expect in a 5* hotel. The professionalism and friendliness of the staff are this hotels main asset.

    Have just returned after spending two weeks at the Hotel and have to say that in my opinion the hotel should not have a 5 star rating, maybe 4 would be more appropriate. The Hotel is grand looking and cleaned constantly and very impressive. The food is fanatstic and in abundance with plenty of choice, but if your not in... More

    This is our second visit to this hotel, we were last there in August 2014. From the moment we entered the hotel, it was 5 star treatment all the way, from the welcome drinks to the speedy check-in and the swift and prompt delivery of our cases to our room. All the staff are very friendly and are always showing... More

Weather wasn't the best and didn't venture out of hotel until the Fri. Food still good. Staff always working hard. Disappointed the "salon" bar wasn't opened as the atrium area... More

    Enjoyed a week away in February, first time for me visiting Tunisia. Hotel was perfect and there was nothing I could complain about. As all previous reviews state, food, accommodation, cleanliness, friendliness and helpfulness of staff excellent. As this was an all inclusive deal I wondered how the drinks would match up and I must say the spirits were really... More

    As with all the other reviews, I would like to add more but cannot, as it's all been said! But I have to say once again that Riu Hotels will never let you down.
