I have travelled all over the world and Tunisia is the country I have always felt safest in - both before AND after the revolution. And I have always stayed at the wonderful Riu Oceana. Thirteen years now. Maybe 30 happy holidays spent there. Exceptional staff: friendly, attentive, polite. Beautiful clean rooms serviced by cheery maids which have recently been renovated, and the new furniture is a vast improvement. The food is delicious, I always put on weight! And breakfast on the terrace is a real treat.
I can honestly say it has the finest gardens/pool area in Hammamet. I know because I recently visited every 5 star hotel in the town to compare and could find no better. One came close, none beat it. Yes, the birds are noisy. But only at sunset for half an hour. And it's fun watching them soaring into the air.
As to reports of thefts, well I left my camera, Iphone, laptop and my gold signet ring on the table in the room the entire time - nothing was taken.
I have never had a problem at this lovely hotel, but I'm sure Mr Nuno Neves the very attentive manager would very soon take care of it.
