From posts on here, it would appear there is only 1 inclusive bar of the 5 and that the 'English pub' isn't even on the complex, let alone included. It also looks like the pool is closed/drained and the furniture is falling apart. We booked to go at the end of this month, but we are going to cancel in the morning. FALSE REPRESENTATION springs to mind!

After reading many reviews about this hotel after I booked my week break . I wished I cancelled and booked elsewhere. I stayed here during the middle of March 2015, ( I was meant to write this on my return a week ago). On arrival at the hotel I was met with disappointment and an uneasy sense of oh my goodness!! Wanted to be on the next plane out. The hotel location is ok not like the other hotels with a huge entrance for a moment I thought I was being led into a shop. It was only the door that made me realize that it's the hotel. On entering the hotel my only thoughts were I am in the 70's and expected the bee gees song staying alive to be playing in the back ground. Got to reception and was told a room will not be ready until 3.30pm, given the fact that I arrived at 12.30pm, my bags where taken I was told to have lunch in the dining room, it was quite an experience I thought I was having lunch in pensioners paradise (no lie) the waiters are just plain rude and I was ignored, which I noticed was a recurring theme. I asked for a glass of water twice which nevered arrived. After I took a walk around I retured to reception, which was completely chaos, more people arrived and no form of structured line its was everyone just pushing and shouting, certains groups of travellers were ignored others especially Germans were given preferential treatment. They have no understanding of what is line is barge pass, pushing they understand. Only a gentelman was at the desk sorting many people out their rooms at once, as the female staff just stood around chatting between themselves. I refused to wait until 3.30pm for a room, so I was given a room at 1.30pm on the 5th floor, right next to the lift, the room was dark, the lights are very dim, the bathroom needs a make over the titles falling off the wall, the toilet was making the most amount of noise possible and when it was flushed it went on for over two mins (I timed it). The bed is like sleeping on a concrete slab. The blankets on the bed have certainly seen better days, the TVs I had to pay 20dinars for the pleasure of having the remote. The reception staff just plain rude ignore complaints and very unhelpful. The cleaner who arrived to clean my room on my first morning has a lot to be desired , apart from storing in to change the towles, she wanted a tip I only had two pounds in change which I gave her but she demanded more I said to her I don't have anymore, the following morning I placed the don't disturb sign up, it was completely ignored and she just barged in no apology, (I was still in bed )arrive with a fellow cleaner also entre my room while one change the towles the other did her hair in the bathroom mirror. The lifts works sporadically, so I got excerpted walking up the stairs on a number of times. During evening meals I was placed at a particular table, with strangers who made feel uncomfortable, so I had my dinner after they finished. So I Could have the table to myself. They waiters are just grumpy and unhappy bunch. During my stay the pool was being repaired , on my departure day was went the pool was being filled up. On the floor I was on during the day the maintains was being carried out, so it was terribly noisy so I had to leave the room for most of the day. The room has no iron which was a Complete pain, I was told I would have to pay for dry cleaning and my clothes will be ironed then. No kettle in room, so I visited the local shops for water and the cafe outside the hotel. The area is quite run down, but it's ok, I walked out on my own I had no problems, the security at the hotel could be a lot better, as I was their during the museum attack, and felt it lacked , compared to other countries I've visited where security is a lot more heavy, they did have a police check point outside the hotel. On the beach the security did step up after the attack, but not greatly, I should say the security guards do not carry guns, so I don't know how they will protect the guest if the hotel was to be attacked. The food was full of variety however as many other reviewers have stated its always cold or just warm, so that was very off putting, I had soup one day it was advertised as mushroom so I sat down didn't find any mushroom only strips of chicken it was cold and very gluppy. The desserts were nice, but very sweet. The pancakes were the best. As one previous reviewer said only Apple and oranges on offer very true. The smoking area is in the main lobby and it's very annoying if you're a non smoker, I smelled of cigarette smoke which is very unpleasant, as it's the only place that has wifi access, which is slow at times. If any of you reading this review, chose a different hotel not the Rahdia Palms, it's one of the worse hotels ive stayed in , it needs a makeover, the staff needs to be taught good customer relations, the food needs to be better. It needs the little things that makes a four star hotel, which this lacks. I will not be returning to Tunisia after this experience.

waited 3 hours for room, dirty towels with holes in. Food very limited in choice, hunt for clean plates, given left over cutlery from used tables made to sit on allocated table for evening meal with complete strangers, Every one complaining . NOT 4 star stayed in better hostels. Went for 10 days and requested flight home after 4 days. Our Thomas Cook run out of complaint forms which shows how bad it was.

This was our first time in Tunisia and i was not disappointed......the Hotel was lovely and i agree in need of a little TLC. The food was not great but im aware we are fussy eaters. The weather was awful but all this did not matter because the staff and animation team actually made our holiday. The waiters and bar staff could not do enough for you and after a few days you did not even need to tell them what u wanted they brought it straight over, they were very welcoming. Marwan was always friendly and kept the tables clean and clear of emptys. The animation team were amazing they kept everyone entertained from the young to the elderly. They are a great asset to hotel and we hope to see them all again soon as we have booked to go back in June.
