We returned from a three week holiday at the Riu Bellevue Park Hotel, yesterday having had a wonderful time.
Its beachfront location, and pleasant poolside area, about 40 minutes walk from Port el Kantoui, make this hotel a good choice for those wishing to relax and recharge batteries.
Most things at this hotel are excellent with comfortable bedrooms and lounge areas, enthusiastic, helpful and friendly staff without exception.
The animation team are an asset providing entertainment and activities throughout the day. Spider and Dora in particular, are amazing and talented dancers, who would hold their own on any London West End stage.
Food is plentiful with a wide variety in the main restaurant = the a la carte restaurant was not in operation during our stay.
We went on several excursions with an early start, which meant that we had to take the early breakfast option which was very disappointing and barely adequate with very limited choices, and no cold milk available for tea.
Yellow mini buses with blue stripes along the side, run on the main road a few minutes walk from the hotel, and run into Sousse for l dinar, and to the delightful and unspoilt fishing village of Hergla for l.5 dinar in the opposite direction. We would certainly recommend a visit to Hergla to see the real Tunisia, some people dressed in Tunisian clothes, and going about their business using donkeys. A break on the roof terrace of the Cafe Restaurant Sidi Siiad where you will experience a warm welcome, is a must with spectacular views over the Gulf of Hammamet..
Rooms on the left hand side of the hotel get most of the sun, although all poolside rooms have a pleasant outlook with side views of the sea. Bathsheets would be a great addition, and if these had been available my overall rating would certainly have been excellent.
All in all, a great place for some winter sun.............even though we went from Tshirts to thermals in three hours on our return!!!
