There are not enough words to describe how much we loved this hotel. The staff do everything in their power to make your hols an exceptional one. They are the friendliest, most loveliest people we have ever met. We were in the hotel when the shootings happened and obviously it was a very stressful time for everyone, many guests were in a terrible state and the amazing staff comforted and supported everyone. They made us feel safe at a time that was unsettling. The fantastic man who works at the spa even spoke to my mum on the phone when he saw me crying on the phone to her, he reassured her and comforted me and my children. The FANTASTIC ents team 'sou sou', 'marwen', 'marco' and 'gabi' continued to entertain and play with our children and put their own fears aside. True professionals and wonderful human beings. I was so sad to leave them all behind, especially considering the circumstances. The hotel will probably be quiet now sadly. I hope that people continue to book. I felt safer at the hotel than anywhere else. Even after what happened i wish i was still there. The staff become like one big family. Everybody said this, all nationalities and all ages, everyone we met thought the staff were second to none. We will definately go back to visit them. Cant wait to go back. The food is delicious, always something on offer that we loved. The doughnuts are way too delicious unfortunately (so i visited the gym a few times and ventured into aqua aerobics in the pool with marwen and the gang everyday, thats a real laugh) The maids are lovely, always so friendly and the rooms were spotless. Contrary to belief, the waiters and maids etc dont expect tips all the time. Its really not like that at this hotel. However, we did tip because service is just so good. Mohammed makes the best cocktails in the world, i'll miss him and his cocktails and his big cheesy smile :) You must ask him to make you one of his specials. The pool and beach man is lovely too, always on hand to get you sunbeds and cushions, and the waiting staff by the poolside are fantastic, not having to budge an inch to get yourself a drink is great, bless them. Great indoor pool too, not that you'll need it. Also the gym is fab, better than usual gyms abroad. The hotel is right on the beach and a beach bar (neptunes) serves drinks and food (still all inclusive) also. There is also an amazing part right near the beach where sunbeds are under canopies, so luxurious. Also there are hammocks everywhere in the beautiful gardens tied to the palm trees. I had 4 massages whilst there, and a hammam too. Ask for Hasher, she is an amazing massage therapist. This hotel is an experience. Its magical. The beauty of it, the food, the drinks, the pool, the beach, but most of all - the people. I cant believe how they put us first and looked after us at such a crazy time. Absolute troopers. The best hol weve ever had and the best hotel weve ever stayed in. Love Riahd palms, can you tell? lol :) Debbie and James Wildi

This is the second time we have been to Riadh Palms, the first being in 2008 and the second end of May 2015. The hotel rooms were much nicer when we visited in 2008-the rooms now seem a little out-dated and the colours used (brown/orange) are not that appealing. We had a sea view room with an amazing view so can’t complain! The rooms are kept clean and housekeeping is always on hand to give you any towels etc if you need them. Generally the hotel is nice be it a little out dated; the staff are very helpful and always willing to help. There is a lot of choice for food and drink (we went all inclusive) so you can use any of the snack bars outside to eat during the day, there are pancakes, ice cream, candy floss, doughnuts available throughout the day, along with chicken, salads and fruit, and tea and coffee- we took out own tea bags as the English tea on offer in the hotel was not nice. You must walk around to appreciate what’s on offer. I read a lot of reviews about the entertainment team being excellent. This was not the case; most of the entertainment in the evening was quite dull and sometimes too sexualised for kids. We didn’t enjoy this at all, almost avoiding the rubbish that was going on in the evening. There is a lot of offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner; there is always something that you can eat. There seemed to be a queuing system that did not need to be there as not everyone wants what’s in the first tray and unnecessary queuing meant waiting for your food longer (esp in the evenings). A variety of desserts which are delicious. One of best things about this hotel and the others along the beach is that you don’t need to walk far for the beach, you can either stay by the pool or go to the beach, I would advise getting there early if you want a sun lounger with padding. The Medina (souk) is not far from the hotel, we have been before so knew our way, although taking a taxi is easier- especially as you can pick up some great bargains at the medina. Pay no more than 4dinars each way in the taxi. You can go to some excursions, obviously your rep will overcharge you for these (e.g,. quad biking etc) but you can use some of the reps outside the beach area who can take you quad biking for 40dnr (£14) don’t pay for the “High Speed” quad bike that is on offer as this does not exist- the quads have a limited speed limit and cannot go faster as you are in a group of around 10 people. Jet ski and paragliding can be done with the team further down the beach- charging around 60dinar for two people on a jet ski or paragliding. Overall, a very nice place to stay, it is clean and has a welcoming environment and help is on hand if you need it.

We stayed in this hotel 12th-19th of june, on arrival we got there very late about midnight, the reception staff were very lovely rushed us in to the resteraunt to eat straight away. after checking in and going up to the room, the view was AMAZING. we had paid extra for a sea room and this was 100% worth it!. Our room was a little outdated but we didnt spend much time in it to be fasir, we had ants in the bathroom, however when we had a shower we managed to flood the floor and drowned them all. no problems after that. We had Wifi in our room with a very good signal!! the resteraunt had set tables and they sat us with 2 other pairs, they kept saying we had to make friends, turns out by the end we did become good friends with one pair we sat with! so that was nice! Food was ok...... very limitied choice but still managed to try something different every night. We tried the indian resteraunt which was lovely, the waiters and staff could not do enough for you in all ways. always smiling and friendly willing to get you another drink. one waiter even made us a table up and made sure we was comfotable! Very lovelyman! The entertainment was not very good in the evenings, we fouind it really boring and quiete offensive! so we tended to avaoid evening entertainment. The pool was lovely and very clean, the pool man was also very helpful always bringing matresses for our sunloungers! we got up pretty early so got a good spot for the day but i did see some people tipping peoples towels off to have the spot. we barely left once we had ours but we did have an incident of being dragged out on our sunloungers so that the people could have our sun umbrella! this was unfair and i made my point with this! They were not english so thats all i need to saY! Bar was nice, very friendly people again, the lobby was lovely all marble staircases ans a beautiful foundation!!! i would recommend if you was to go to the medina DO NOT take a taxi! go for the noddy train, much cheaper and they are safe! we got in a taxi expecting to be taken to the medina and they chucked us out about amile from the medina and told us to walk! we were not impressed, then on the way back (before we knew about the train) they took us to the wrong hotel, even though we told them several times were we actually were and tried to charge us for another ride! we didnt pay it!!! But in the medina was terrible we were grabbed chased and harrassed constantly! we had enough and didnt want to leave the hotel after this! we go brave and did manage to make it to Port el Kantoui on the noddy train! people were so friendly and nice there! much much better and cheaper than the medina!"!! All in all, i wouldnt return to tunisia due to the nature of the people outside and abuse we got at the medina from being two young girls, but if i did i would probably come back to this hotel! was very lovely thank you
