This is my sort of hotel, friendly relaxed staff, lovely food, not too many people, lots of space. Happy to find our room is huge with comfortable beds and lots of cupboard space and a wonderful view of the sea. The kids feel really comfortable here and race around like they own the place and nobody minds. The buffet is of very high quality. Shame the hairdresser didn't have anyone who could cut hair though. Tunisia is not for the 18-30s crowd, but for those who like to spend their holidays relaxing, hanging out with the kids and eating nice food and drinking great wine this is the place to come.

We have just returned from a very enjoyable break at the Oceana. The hotel is very well run by the director Mr Nuno Neves who took a personal interest in how we were enjoying our stay. His staff are very friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. Rooms very comfortable - haven't slept so well in a long time! The food was well prepared and varied, and the buffet was well presented. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Both my partner and I have visited Riu Palace Oceana on two occasions - Summer 2010 and Summer 2011. There has been a vast improvement during this time owing mainly in my opinion to the Director, Nuno Neves. The food and service has significantly improved (and judging from recent reviews) continues to improve since our last visit.

I was particularly impressed with the level of cleanliness. The rooms and hotel are extremely clean and real pride is taken by all cleaning staff. The beach is also kept very clean and the gardens are well tended to.

Having just returned from a 2 week stay over the Christmas holiday, I HIGHLY recommend this venue for persons seeking quality, comfort, tranquil location, personal and attentive service. What an amazing facility! I was impressed with the warm welcomes I received not just upon my arrival, but every day of my stay, from employees and clients. The manager, Nuno Neves, set the standard for personal srvice with his numerous contacts with each client daily. The Executive Chef personally supervised meals, welcoming and interacting with each client, soliciting personal likes and needs. This attention to individual detail was also displayed by the wait service, bar staff, and housekeeping personnel. Hedia, a supervisor of the housekeeping staff, displayed much pride and professionalism in the work of her department. The number of return clients, as well as solo women travelers, attests to the well-deserved loyality, sense of safety & security offered. In this time of austerity and political change, this oasis of comfort and stability is much appreciated. At all times I felt at ease and relaxed, as if at a 2nd home. Bravo!

Room Tip: Request room on upper floor, pool and seaside view.

We were recommended this hotel by friends, its on the sea and very near club med. We went before and during this christmas, booking it ourselves and flying to Tunis with BA. The hotel had organised a taxi to meet us at the airport.
The weather was only fair, but some sun and quite warm. The hotel has excellent facilities mostly free,eg outdoor pool [too cold this time] but a large indoor pool and loungers etc. Nice Turkish baths, sauna. Massage / spa type services /hairdresser were available but extra. The bedroom was very spacious indeed, with a nice big balcony and sea view - separate clothes hangng area and big bathroom. Excellent room service, TV but limited stations . All the staff were very attentive and friendly and the general manager Nuno was always out and about - knew who we were, and asking if all was OK etc. He ate in the restaurant.
We were on half board, which was enough, as the food [buffet] was v good and plentiful.
Special dinner was arranged for Christmas day, and the hotel made a real effort go get in the festive mode.
Overall highly recommended.
