We travelled to Tunisia in a group of 12 (4 couples and 4 singles) all over 50. We chose this hotel because we have stayed at other Riu hotels and always found them v good. Not having been to Tunisia before it made sense to choose a hotel that we knew should be of a good standard.
We all chose bungalow rooms and they were all excellent, clean spacious and well appointed. We did not find the lack of air con a problem as the nights were fairly chilly.
Staff were excellent and always very pleasant and helpful.. I must agree that at the weekend when the Tunisians arrived it was rather hectic as there were only the same amount of staff and the poor bar waiters were run off their feet. We rather thought that by the end of April the practice of renting cheap rooms to the locals would be finished but they did not spoil our holiday too much. The only thing we really noticed is that the quality of the food in the restaurant goes down ie no cheese and biscuits and cheaper cuts of fish and meat.
Overall we had a really good holiday and would certainly return both to Tunisia and the hotel.
