Other hotels get pool envy when they see the size of this one – it’s got a huge sun terrace and a swim-up bar, too.
A sandy beach lines up alongside this hotel, so you’re just footsteps away from the sea. Speaking of water, there’s a massive pool. It features a huge sun terrace and in-pool loungers, plus there’s a swim-up bar for drinks.
The hotel comes with a buffet restaurant and a pair of speciality places – and activities like aqua aerobics and boules help you work up an appetite. Evenings are all about relaxing in front of shows and dance groups.

A great family break
This was a great family break for us in April - the hotel is huge and clean, with lots of local attractions nearby (such as the outdoor zoo, which the kids loved. You can ride on a camel for Â£1.00!) You can get a taste of Tunisian life by wandering to the local Medina and sipping peppermint tea or coffee. There's also a local marina which is charming to explore. In the hotel itself there are numerous activities throughout the day; a kids' club, tennis, archery and aerobics. Our kids adored the nightly 'mini disco' and learning the routines. An enjoyable break.More

Amazing holiday despite the tragedy that occured
We stayed at riu Marco polo for 11 nights which ended up being when the attack took place, despite what happened it was an amazing holiday and we are trying to return back to this hotel later in the year or next year. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown to our rooms which were clean and tidy. Our view was amazing of the pool and beach. The maid left flowers every day and left beautiful patterns on the bed which made our day. The food was incredible, there was always choice despite what people say. Your always going to get people moaning about tiny things that they make into a big deal but I can honestly say the food was fantastic and the themed nights were a real treat. Sabar our waiter for breakfast and lunch treated us like royalty and made our holiday! He would get our drinks ready every day and was one of the nicest people I have ever met. The animation team were fantastic always happy and smiling despite the tragedy that occured and despite the vast amount of people who left they still made everyone's day. Aquagym is a must and makes you feel great all holiday! The pool can be cold but when it's 40'C it's just what you need. The pool was huge and the bar was amazing to just chill out in the water on. We would of liked to of got out more but due to what happened it was extremely quiet when we did go out. We managed to go quad biking with Ali who stands by the entrance of the beach, you might be put off by the pestering but it was one of the best experiences of my life. We were picked up from the hotel and taken to the quad biking centre were we went on the bigger quad bikes and went all through the desert and mountains. We will definitely be returning despite what has happened as we loved the hotel and love Tunisia so don't be put of by what has happened as it can happen anywhere nowadays and it's the Tunisian people who are being the most affected.

Triumph in the face of adversity ! Laughter and tears in equal measures
Outstanding 2 week holiday, even though we arrived just 1 day before the atrocity at Sousse. When others fled we stayed ! Some services etc were cut / stopped but we still had a great time. We laughed with the staff and cried with the staff. This was a true example of triumph in the face of adversity. Please ignore negative comments you may read about this hotel or the Thomson rep Michelle. I challenge anyone to try and do any better under such horrendous, heart wrenching circumstances, complainers should be ashamed of themselves. Anyway, more about the lovely Clyb Marco Polo :- Rooms - basic but clean and tidy. Nice bathrooms with great showers. Only downside is that some rooms, although with pool / sea view will be obstructed by the huge flat roof of the resteraunt. If you get a room close to reception you will pick up the wifi. Pool - Just one word, superb. The temperature was like a bath by mid-day. Huge pool, same depth throughout. Great swim up bar. Food - Decent selection of food most days. Wide choice of fresh fruit etc. Resteraunt staff and waiters very charming and friendly. Italian and Chinese themed resteraunts on site, go as many times as you like during your stay Bars - good selection of local beers, wines and spirits. Staff more than happy to make cocktails. Not the strongest in the world but as some people drink all day and night it's probably for the best. If you want a more instant hit, drink the wine...just as strong as back home ! Entertainment - If I ever win the Lotto I will go back and reward all these guys. If you are happy to at least be sociable and have a chat these guys will totally make your holiday. They work relentlessly from 9am until 1am with very short breaks. Even though after the Sousse attack our hotel was nearly empty they carried on with full animation programme, credit where credit is due. Sincere thanks to everyone of you including Sami, Simba, Mario, Mamadou ...far to many names to mention but you know who you are ! We love Tunisia and would love to go back to this hotel. I prey that one day it will be possible ....long live the Marco Polo, we hope to see you all again :-) More

Beautiful hotel & facilities however the gym equipment was not working throughout any of the holiday despite being reported several times. Food was good however the Tunisian idea of vegetarian is clearly unique as I was told 'no its not meat, just ham'! Unfortunately for two women away on their own this area did not feel Safe to be out on our own therefore felt confined to the hotel throughout the stay. More
