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!

This is a great place to stay. So clean and the staff are over the top involved with you and your family! The entertainment is old school people knocking their pan in to make you laugh and the atmosphere is very relaxed. Food is ok not to everyones taste but we liked it. Spirits are watered down but this is fine as you are sat by the massive pool drinking all day! Great activities, sports and dancing all included. Staff do expect to be tipped and work very hard for it so you don't mind giving them a few dinar as the exchange rate is much in our favour. Avoid the organized tours as you can book taxis through the hotel and do things yourself for less than a quarter of the cost. All in all a gorgeous holiday. We will definitely be back!More


50th Celebration

Booked a ladies week away for a celebration and didn't expect to get such a lovely hotel at such great value for money. Location was perfect right near the marina. Layout was lovely and perfect for those with walking difficulties or wheelchair bound. Had lovely disabled room. Pool area excellent. Food was very good. admittedly I got bored with buffet and would have liked the other restaurant to be open (doesn't open until June) just for more choice. The bar staff especially at the outside upper bar (LOFTI and colleague were excellent). The entertainments team worked so hard to make everyone feel welcome and enjoy their stay. The hotel was really clean, well kept gardens and public areas. All the staff worked hard to make everyone enjoy their stay. I would definitely go back here. It is such good value for money and definitely 4 star. However, just two slight dampeners. one was the entertainment guy Zizou getting sulky when my niece rejected his advances (the other guys were really professional) and on the last morning 15 mins before we left the hotel my friend had her smartphone stolen from her handbag in the Asian breakfast area. There were very few people around and although we reported it at reception I wasn't satisfied they did not question the member of staff who brought the milk in to that room at 6.30 am. I would still like to find the outcome of this as management have not investigated this and I would be seriously concerned there is a thief in this hotel. If we hadn't have been leaving we would have got the police involved. Free WiFi in reception and some areas of the hotel but not in rooms. Adequate. Do not let this put you off, just watch your belongings as we need to do in any country.More

Brilliant 1st couple holiday!

My girlfriend and i have not travelled before as a couple, so this was a first for us. It was fantastic. The rooms are a good size however, you should request a pool facing one because we didn't and our balcony opened out onto the carpark and was shaded most of the day, but we didnt use it much so it didnt really bother us. The beds were average and a good size. The wifi was free but didnt reach all the rooms however could be used in min reception and sometimes by the pool. The food wasnt great, however i believe that it is just Tunisian food which we didnt like, there was a big variety. We also went out to dinner one night to "The Boat" which was brilliant and highly recommended. The Animation team was amazing. We could not say anything bad about them, Always putting on a good show in the evening and great activities within the day. Especially Simba and Sami. The location was good, just a 3 minute walk from the harbour and lots of restaurants and shops. The hotel had 3 shops in it which sold food, cloths and gifts. The hotel had its own personal beach aswell as the largest pool in the whole of North Africa. It was very clean, apart from the hand soap in our room which was mouldy and smelt of farts. But we did have bar soap given to us aswell. We would highly recommend this hotel and would go back if we could!More

Had an amazing time at Marco Polo.. Great staff, attentive and hard working!great food with plenty of variety and a massive pool!every day was full of entertaining things to do, followed by a stroll on the beach at sunset.. 10 out of 10 for everything! Tip: 1. Doesn't hurt to tip as drinks stay top notch/flowing 2. Definitely avoid going at the same time as tunisian holidays or prepare to be bombarded! 3. Always quote 1/3 of the price taxi drivers quote! More

Fateha H,

Not platinum experience

Just came back from week in Marco Polo. All I can say that you get what you paid for... Hotel is quite clean as well as pool area. Room are spacious but bathrooms could do with refreshing and air conditioning doesn't do anything except making noise. Water in the fridge which meant to be complimentary was never there, but there is a shop in the hotel where you can purchase it. Food is nice and even if you are fussy eater you should find something for yourself in the buffet restaurant. Fantastic selection of pastries in the morning. Bread and rolls very hard . Buffet restaurant becomes a nightmare over the weekend were locals are staying as the queues take forever and they all pushing in in front of you and it's all becoming a bit like a zoo... There is no one controlling that! Asian restaurant was open but the menu is the same every night and it's a buffet with a little choice and you need to get there as soon as it opens as there is only one sitting and you may not have much food left. Mediterenian restaurant wasn't opened at all even thou on Thomas Cook website says 1/05.... Snacks by the pool in the other restaurant which is open till 5 consist of pancakes and fruit. We went to Bella Marina seafood restaurant and it was amazing! If you ask your rep to book the table they will pick you up and drop you to the hotel. Pool is very nice but you need to get up early to get the sunlounges as everyone seems to be reserving them. Beach very dirty and no bar. There was no pedalos or other water sport equipment offered even thou it's on Thomas Cook website. Memo and his entertainment team is fantastic and doing whatever they can to make your stay fun. They are very friendly but not pushy. Drinks are so weak you will never taste alcohol in them. If you like nice glass of wine, bring a bottle from duty free with you. If you looking for a bit of shopping and don't want to be hassled go to Joyce shopping centre. Spa is great value for money, but wouldn't suggest having anything except massage as had facial and still suffering with allergy reaction on my face and neck which ruined my last two days of holidays and cost me visit to A&E... If you want to have a bit of fun book a buggy trip from your Rep. It's great fun and you will see some spectacular views of Tunisian countryside.More
