I have stayed at many hotels in different parts of the world but the Riu Marillia was amazing! I stayed here for 2 weeks during July 2013 with 4 other family members. Weather was beautiful, the pool...my god it was massive! Food was the best bit, the choice of the buffet was incredible, even though the menu repeats every week you don't notice because there is so much to chose from, even for the fussy eaters like me! Rooms were fantastic. We had booked 2 rooms and the only downside was that they were at complete opposite ends of the hotel but we perfectly cleaned everyday. All plumbing was good and comfy beds. We had a newly renovated room which was very big for 3 people but the other room was an old one. Don't get me wrong it was still perfect but a little dated. The animation team do their job so well to keep everyone entertained and the evening shows are amateur but very funny. Cocktails are lovely, nothing watered down and all staff friendly. One tip, don't do excursions via your rep. If you want to go somewhere ask at reception for a taxi and agree on a price. We done this twice, once to the zoo and once to many parts of carthage. He stayed at waited for us both times and was cheaper than excursions. Beach was wonderful, did get a little bit of rudeness from hasslers who wouldn't leave us alone but that's Tunisia! One day there was quite a lot of rubbish washed up on the beach so we told reception who immediately got management so we could express our concerns...the next day it was spotless again! We was served by the most loveliest man everyday for breakfast and dinner, near the end of the holiday he would have our drinks waiting for us on the table bless him, wish I could remember his name!
All in all a delightful stay at this hotel, definitely worth the money and would love to return one day :)
