ClubHotel Riu Marco Polo

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.

Loved it, wish I was still there, going back

I got back last week from a fantastic week at the lovely Marco Polo. I didn't look at the reviews before I went as in the past when I have people just moan for the sake of it, however looking at the reviews everyone is of the same opinion as me. The hotel was spotless, the staff couldn't do enough for you. They were friendly and nothing was ever to much trouble. All the staff from Mohammed (obama) on our first day, the bar staff, cleaners, restaurant staff, chefs and animation team were superb. They just want you to feel welcome and have a fantastic time. The hotel was beautiful and well presented. There was always a fantastic choice of food in the restaurant,I tried foods that I would never have done before. I am a little surprised by some of the comments below, especially the one about the animation team being pushy and not taking no for an answer, they certainly were not if you said no or you were doing something else they would leave you alone. I however did participate in some activities as this was a great way to meet new people. The atmosphere within the guests and staff was great everyone was friendly and spoke with each other. Entertainment at night was also some of the best I have seen.(keep up the excellent work animation team). I walked out side the complex and didn't have a problem with sellers, if you want to have a look then its ok but if you don't just say no thank you and walk on. Overall this was my first time to Tunisia and I didn't know what to expect but I can honestly say I loved it and I am already looking at my next trip back as it was that good. I would like to say a big thank you to all the Marco Polo staff, you made my holiday a fantastic one. See you soon. More

Fabulous Hotel

Having just returned after a three week holiday at the Marco Polo, Yasmin Hammermet. I can only praise the management and the staff for making our holiday as good as it was, nothing is to much trouble. They are so helpful, polite and always smiling. The food is very good, there is always something to eat, soups, salads, and hot meals, fish, poultry and meat all very tasty. Rooms are of a good size and clean daily to a high standard. The whole hotel is spotless due to an army of cleaners constantly working hard. This was our second visit here and I will certainly return.More

Excellent break

I got a very last minute deal with First Choice/Thompson so decided to have a little bit of time away with my daughter, leaving my husband and two sons in the freezing UK! The hotel were very welcomming upon arrival, it is practically spotless in the decadent interior. We were given fruit juice on arrival and filled out the relevant forms whilst Mohammamed/Obama gave a great welcome speech. The room was larger than expected and again very clean. We were room 3016 which overlooked the pool and the sea and had a small balcony area, nice bathroom and quite strong wi-fi signal. The staff were very welcomming and could not do enough to help. The restruant was really good and it offered so so so much food, so there is something for everyone, even my fussy eight year old daughter. I was actually pleasently surprised about the food quality. The outside pool was too cold to use (Jan) but looks beautiful so I can imagine that would be brill in the summer. The beach was lovely but we did not go there much because the second we left the hotel we would get harrassed (and I am not using that word light heartedly) by sellers or camel/horse riding men. One cornered me and my daughter (who is only 8) at the harbour end of the beach, and refused to let us walk away until we bought something - though his attitude disgusted me so much we actually just ran away from him without buying anything. If he was more friendly then perhaps I would have bought something. It is a shame the hotel can not remove these from their "private" beach, as it did ruin that. I mean, what kind of 'man' corners and threatens a 20-something woman and her 8yr old daughter? The cleaning staff were great and I enjoyed leaving sweets and tips for them at the beginning of the week, however towards the end of the week, they were just coming to our room to clean earlier and earlier each morning, to the point they were actually waking us up. We came to relax, not to be woken before 8am. The indoor pool was lovely and warmer towards the end of the day, quite chilly in the mornings. We did not explore the area close to the hotel (outside) as after the incident with the beach seller, my daughter was too frightened to go out, so we only went on some planned excursions. The staff were ALL so friendly, however some maybe too friendly. The culture is so different, but SOME of the men are too flirty and make it SO obvious to a point that it becomes uncomfortable. I expect if you were with a boyfriend or husband though that this would not happen. A lot of the staff also took a shine to my daughter because they "loved her hair". She did find this too uncomfortable as we could not go anywhere in the hotel without her getting pulled, prodded, poked or stroked or being given flowers. I know it is just friendly, but they could sense she did not like it but carried on regardless. So we felt as though we could not leave the hotel due to the sellers, but it got to a point when we did not even want to leave the room because of all the unwanted attention. Having said that though, the majority of the staff were ever so professional and did not act in this way. The animation were nice but quite persistent in getting people to join in with their activities such as archery, bowls etc. They need to realise that some people go away to relax, not play games. However, we told them a firm 'no thanks' and they accepted it, but others were practically forced into archery haha! Saturday was very loud as lots of locals used the hotel - lots of kids running up and down corridors at 1am. I would return though (perhaps with a son though!), they are lovely people and really do go out of their way to help. I like that when I tipped at dinner (10 dinar) the waiter was overwhelmed, and that shows they do not expect tips, and are grateful if they do get any - unlike other places in Tunisia where they expect a tip. Overall, very happy. :)More
