Bellevue Park
Ranked #5 of 33 Hotels in Port El Kantaoui
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Having stayed at this hotel last year we were expecting the same quality but sadly this was missing this year. The hotel is starting to show signs of needing a refurbishment and maybe fumigating. The food and drink are below the standard you would expect of a four star hotel, with the food in the second week being much worse.
The WiFi, which is advertised as being free and available in the reception area is an absolute joke, almost impossible to gain access at any time and to find out that they turn it of at 23.00 hours.
The bar area is very small for a hotel with a status of 4 stars, you would expect a much larger or even two bars to accommodate the number of guests. The only saving grace is the barman, he has a fantastic memory and is very efficient.
The pool area is also looking tired with tiles missing in the pool and loose tiles on the area around the pool. As for the sunbeds I would probably say most of them are in a poor condition or are broke.
The daytime entertainment can be loud at times but most people seem to enjoy it. The evening entertainment in my opinion is very disappointing.
The one redeeming feature of this hotel are the staff, they are hardworking, friendly and dedicated to their work but sadly they are being let down by the Riu Brand.
Just a note of concern are the delays you get at the airport?

Room Tip: Ask for high floor overlooking the pool.

Just returned from first time in Tunisia. If you've seen a bad review and it's put you off- ignore it! absolutely beautiful hotel with INCREDIBLE staff, I cannot stress how hard they work and how friendly they are. There Animation team were the highlight for me. They work extremely hard and are always so friendly and funny and they are great fun to be around. already missing them! Hotel itself is so clean, food is fantastic, the beach/pool and all facilities are excellent! Will definitely be going back, 10/10!!

Just returned from a two week holiday and everything about the hotel what was we expected from a Riu. Don't take any notice about the negative comments on here,as they are as far away from the real truth.
My advice if you are thinking of booking is do it, all the staff are very help full, what ever you ask they will do, its very clean, both inside and around the grounds. We spoke to people who are on their 3rd and 4th stay here and will come back again.
This is our 5th stay at a Riu hotel and have found that this is the best group of hotel's we have stayed at.
The only draw back and this is nit picking is that it's about 2/3 mile from the marina, but hey ho at 5 dinas for a yellow taxi fare each way before 9pm and 12 dinas for a taxi into Sousse, which is around 14 kms away, cheap at half the price.

We stayed here in March 2013, it was our second visit, the rooms are lovely, the staff work tirelessly from the manager down, nothing is too much trouble, the rooms are nice and comfy and spacious, the grounds and pool area is nice and clean and tidy, and you are straight out onto the beach, the only thing we didnt like was the indoor pool, it is very cold, the riu next door has a super heated indoor pool. The meals are great, buffet style, there is food to suit every taste, in the mornings the chefs will cook you an omelette to your own taste, this was my favourite part, i would have no problem visiting again

Room Tip: sea view rooms are good

We had a very happy holiday at the Bellevue weather was mostly hot and sunny just some days the sun didn't get its hat on till mid morning, but heyho it was still warm. We found the pool maybe a bit small for the size of the hotel and sometimes overwhelmed by adults on airbeds, okay for children but why adults feel the need for them I do not understand, anyway we swam first thing and cooled off during the day okay. All staff from gardeners, domestic to waiters where happy and friendly the barmen soon recognised us and knew our favourite tipple, just one small observation in that when collecting glasses the waiters didn't give the tables a wipe over leaving them perhaps not dirty but with wet rings. The one thing not up to the normal Riu standard was food, although everything was well cooked and no reflection on the kitchen staff the content was sometimes quite odd all other Riu hotels we have stayed in have had a carvery most days here it seemed chips with everything ruled but the salad bar was excellent, this is the only reason we have docked a star. Oh yes forgot to say that out room was kept squeaky clean throughout our stay big thanks to the hard working cleaning ladies.

Room Tip: would recommend upper floor sea view room.

Stayed at Bellevue Park over the end of August and start of September for a week all inclusive.
Initially amazed at the hotel reception area which looks truly spectacular.
We found there was a slight lack of communication as we weren't told simple things such as where the restaurant was or that you have to pick a sitting for an evening meal and then be assigned a table when you get there, and that is your sitting and your table for the week.
We paid for a Sea View room from Thomson and were not impressed when we awoke to find our main view was actually of a building site. But this was rectified and we were moved to another room once we asked. The Thomson rep is really friendly and always happy to help.
There was a big selection of food available which was very nice, however we personally found the food to be a little on the greasy side and did suffer with mild upset stomachs for a day on holiday.
The rooms and public areas were cleaned to a very high standard and all the staff were pleasant and ready to help. A particular mention for the animation team who work amazingly hard and are by far the best team I've seen on holiday!
Great choice of cocktails and other alcoholic drinks.
The pool area was great and I have to say we didn't get up at 7am to get sunbeds and we always had a choice on the grass behind the pool which we preferred because it kept the sun for longer and you had a lot more space to move the loungers around.
You are able to keep your room on the day of checkout for a 40 dinar charge, if your room is available, unfortunately ours wasn't but we were able to access a courtesy room for half an hour free of charge.
Overall, a great holiday despite not having much sunshine and a few storms.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool also overlook the sea

You can be assured of a very warm welcome here, the staff are all amazing. The rooms are well fitted with plenty of storage and the cleaners work hard to keep the hotel spotless!! The entertainments team are unique and can be relied upon to get you up and going in the morning with their fun poolside dances!! The food is good and the drinks flowed, all served by some pretty amazing staff who will remember your tipple!! The hotel is right on a lovely beach with soft golden sand !! oh how I wish we were there again!! I am sure you will have a great time get involved from the start and have fun.

Room Tip: Over looking the pool hotel in a horseshoe
