We stayed here at the end of June/start of July this year and absolutely loved it. As a riu we expected nothing less than 5* and we weren't disappointed.
The room was ALWAYS spotless with clean towels every day.
The food was always of a high standard with lots of variety. Anyone that complains is obviously fussy as there was always at least 4/5 different types of cooked meat plus fish as well as lots of other options. You will never go hungry - fresh crepes at the pool bar between lunch and dinner is the best!
The pool and surrounding gardens were immaculate - no rubbish lying about and always seen gardeners and cleaners every morning. The beach is narrow but is gorgeous. There is seaweed depending on what the tide brings in but the next day it's normally gone. There are sellers on the beach but simply say "no thanks" and they'll leave you alone. The sea is waist deep almost as far as the buoys. You can do watersports - banana boat, tubing and parasailing as well. (Not hotel organised)
The spa is amazing, full body massage and mud wrap for £30! So tranquil and relaxing!
Outwith the hotel, unfortunately, there is not much to do however you can go on trips to the main town of mahdia which is brilliant. (Esmerelda train is a must!)
All the staff are wonderful! Mr Mohammed the manager was lovely and always about if you needed anything. Hats off to all the waiters and bar staff for remembering orders and to all the animation team and pool boys for working in the 40degree heat!
Cannot fault anything other than lack of things outside the hotel but that's not the hotel's fault.
If you are looking to relax in a beautiful place this is it!
