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.

RIU MARCO POLO
We arrived at this hotel two days before the terrorist attack in Sousse. Prior to the attack the atmosphere in the hotel was excellent. The staff were very attentive in all the guest areas. Unfortunately after the attack lots of guests decided to go home. The hotel emptied very quickly . However the staff went that extra mile to be helpful, cheerful and efficient. We stayed the full 2 weeks and compliment the hotel on how it managed to keep guests happy. Everything carried on with food drinks and entertainment, even when at the end of our stay they were only about 30 people in residence. WELL DONE RIU MARCO POLO. My wife and I wouldnt hesitate in returning.More

Relaxation, comfort and cheer
Here was a great long holiday for us, with lots of relaxation and comfort. We were among the first visitors to arrive here (especially after the Tunisian scare). We started off as very few visitors,(20 in a hotel for 1500) so we had the huge place all to ourselves, and a monster pool. The animators (Simba, Sami, Mario, Mahmoud, Amina, Mimo) were great at offering entertainment and socialising. They were great sources of information on where to find what in Hammamet.The restaurant staff was very friendly, willing to indulge our taste buds. Suppers were made on a different theme every day (Fisherman, Tunisian, French, Berber, Italian, etc). To mention is Bouhouch, who was the best waiter we have ever met, Faten, the best egg lady ever, King Boss Abdulwahed, and Ahmed,who managed our restaurant table. Room Cleaning staff kept our rooms perfectly clean and tidy, with special decor for the beds. On the downside: Pool music was sometimes too loud for relaxation When we wanted water bottles, they were supposed to be ordered a day before and delivered to the rooms. So without knowing this, I left the hotel without water on an excursion, I found this rather annoying, since no one informed us, only until we needed the water. Bar time tables were quite confusing and inconvenient. For example, the pool bar closed at 5 pm, when there were very many people still using the pool. It gave the feeling that the people were being chased by the closure of the bars. Flexibility would have worked much better. Once, the cauliflower in the restaurant had gone bad. Breakfast started at 7.30 am, which was rather late for those with early morning events. In the mornings it was sometimes very hard to open the sun umbrellas at the pool area (for the short people like me, and for women who were alone) and animators were often too busy to help. It would be an idea that they just open them all up at the same time they prepare the place for the day. Meals were generally the same for lunch and supper. The first few days it was not clear whether there was lunch or not and where, when the people were still few. For all-inclusive costs this was rather inconvenient too. The beach area did not have a RIU Marco Polo bar. This limited beach going to about an hour or so, bearing the heat of Hammamet at this time to year. Wi-fi was available in the lobby. In our room was no wi-fi, but in the corridor there was. So sometimes we just stood outside our door for connection. There were no sofas in the corridors to sit on. Children sat on the floors to play on their electronic gadgets. All in all however, despite the initial setback of very few tourists, the holiday developed into a memorable experience. I will definitely come back here, soooon.More

Great break - would have liked more food choices
We flew to Tunisia a few days after the attack in Tunis in March, and were quite nervous and apprehensive, we didnât need to worry as the hotel and surrounding areas seemed safe. We were at the hotel for 10 nights, and by the end of the holiday we were ready to go home! The hotel was very nice, and the pool area was large, and due to the time of year, wasnât very busy. our room was large and well equipt with plenty of storage. The rooms were cleaned daily, but for the majority of our stay, when we went back to our room after being out, the door to our room was left open. Luckily, the corridors were dark and you couldnât see the door was open as you walked past. This was very frustrating, we did tell the reception staff, but this still happened a few more times. Some of the food was a bit disappointing, as the hotel wasnât full, I think some of the choices were limited, but the soups were nice, and there were lots of meat options. After 10 days the food got a bit boring and I would have liked to have seen some more options for fruit and desserts. Only a few bars were open, but you never had to wait too long for a drink. The entertainment team were nice, and we did a few of the activities with Sam, who was very good, and we had a good time playing Archery. We left the complex each day for walks along the beach, to the shops, along the marina, and felt safe and not hassled, and the Prime Minister even came down to the hotel to thank us for still coming after the shootings in Tunis, and to try and promote safety and tourism. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to others, as we had a nice relaxing break and met some friendly people, it is such a shame that people will be put off by the recent shootings.More

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
