A very well-kept hotel with fantastic nice pool/garden. Hotel has only a few single room, is otherwise only from junior suites. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Wireless internet throughout the hotel free of charge. Mixed, sophisticated crowd. Highly recommended in winter, if you're looking for quiet and relaxation. No family hotel, as children only starting from 16 years old must. read hotel review

    Very friendly and good service. The whole staff speaks good german, english or french, is always helpful and makes a great job. Rooms were cleaned very thoroughly, there was nothing to complain about.

    Beach was located directly at the hotel and it was clean and very well maintained - unfortunately only the area, which belongs to the hotel, to the right and left of which it is already clearly dirty. A 20 - minute walk along the beach brings you to jasmine, a nice marina with several cafes and shopping options. Otherwise there was nothing in the direct surrounding area, but was not important. In the center of Hammamet with the taxi or bus is just a few minutes. Shopping, night life and variety for winter play an important role - in the summer is certainly better.

    The hotel is almost only from junior suites. There were only a few single room. The rooms are very large, tastefully furnished and with the phone not also badly soundproofed, which was rather rare is. Tip: book a room in the upper floor with direct sea - / poolblich - just lovely! Large bathroom with bathtub, separate shower and separate toilet - everything was always very clean. Absolute plus: great box spring beds and normal pillows and blankets (not only in sheet procedure followed guarantees wool blankets). Each room has a minibar (daily refilled and with all inclusive free of charge), a kettle (tea and coffee), a hair dryer, a good sized closet for clothes, hair dryer, large flat screen tv, air conditioning. Have stayed in many 5 star hotels in southern shops, but it had such a great room!

    Lovely pool area in a great landscaped garden! The beach, which belongs to the hotel was well maintained and clean. There were immediately cushions and towels, if you want a lounger by the pool or by the beach wanted. No animation in the usual sense (wonderful!) - but a nice offer of activities and gymnastics. For the travel time absolutely sufficient and responding. The spa area: There is a nice indoor pool, a fitness studio and a sauna. The hammam and the treatments there are not recommendable! The area is in dire need of a major renovation and the price-performance ratio is not correct at all. Thoroughly recommended are single booked massages, here i was very pleased. Of wellness-packages, but the finger away!

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Food was varied and absolutely okay. There were always several dishes, freshly at the buffet prepared. No excellence, but really good. Recommendation: definitely book all inclusive! There are only very few possibilities outside of the hotel and the prices in the lunch restaurant and at the bar were quite high. I would have the drinks at the bar and in the in-room mini-bar, as well as the dishes at lunch pay must-so all benefits, it was only when all in is, i would have certainly an additional amount to spend, at least 3a 4 times as high would be, as the all in charge at the travel agent! At the bar there were only premium brands, almost all in the all inclusive package were. The atmosphere and cleanliness in the restaurants was great.

    The staff was extremely friendly and german speaking. Room cleaning always quickly and very neat and clean. Everyone was immediately approachable. A criticism, however, that i must get rid of. Since i not enough cash (euros) for the golfrunden took i wanted in the hotel 'refueling' with my kreditkartew or debit card. This was neither the front desk nor at the atm possible. There was only paid the golfplatzbetreiber not accepted. You let's come. I had to peinlcherweise my friends' borrow from ' around with the golfrunden to go. This was for a 5 star hotel an absolute point of criticism! I suspect this practice a statement from above: do no Euro more return!. Given the euroangelegenheit, i cannot give only 3 stars

    We, my friends and i are longstanding riukunden mostly in spanish regions. We compare of course, the achievements in relation to the price. It is clear to me that tunisian 5 star far not spanish and, of course, no german 5 star. Even, if one considers, that you are in a muslim country vacation makes where pork frowned upon and you therefore to fish and poultry avoided was the quality at the breakfast buffet rather durchschnbittlich. Evening buffet were almost always in quantity and qualiträt good. The restaurant with adjoining terrace with sea view was very pleasant. In good weather you could all meals. Cleanliness spotless. Speedy staff. The quality of the all-inclusive drinks were absolutely okay. Tips were never either directly or indirectly required.

    Hotel is located directly on the beach. During the day as we played golf we can't say what shopping in the proximity are. During the trips to the golf courses but we did in a short proximity hardly shopping seen. Hotel is located several kilometers from the city Hammamet away. To get there you should a bus or take a taxi. However, if you want peace and erhoung searches is here well waived. For excursions in the surroundings one should the offered excursions from the travel agent choose because if you don't speak arabic or french speaks there is not far.

    There are, as in most hotels rooms of different room categories. I had booked a junior suite. You had a partial view of the ocean. Unfortunately there was on the east side and i at any time of sun ☹ during my length of stay no matter it was terrible weather which the hotel can do however nothing) generous - sleep-living area, very spacious bathroom with separate toil. And separate shower the whole area had about 50 square meter. The room was calmly i have no time disturbances notice. The technig worked (with a friend of mine did not) the minibar was refilled daily since we had all-inclusive. Suite had a very large terrace (about 15 square meter)

We were at the Riu Palace Oceana for the first time in February 2013 and were very happy. The Oceana is already something special, spacious and elegant, the rooms are large, nice and well furnished. The mattresses seem to be good, as we could sleep very well and never had back pain, in comparison to some other hotel beds. All Riu people (management, front desk, service staff, chefs and so on) are very friendly - so we went back in October 2013. It is also very good in the restaurant, it is divided by half-height screens. The noise level is ... pleasant, probably also because there are no children there. The tables are always clean (and there are also white linen napkins at lunchtimes), the drinks waiters and cleaning staff are quick and friendly. Chefs are present, as well as a manager to welcome the guests and keep an eye on the buffet and everything. The food is varied and sometimes true delights are prepared for specific guests. I've never eaten such a good fillet of beef, and I was just as delighted with the curried chicken - lots of praise! In October there were also lots of younger guests there, in comparison to February. And - we hadn't expected to still be able to go in the sea in October, but the 'Riu' did an excellent job with nice weather and pleasant temperatures! We will definitely be guests at the Oceana again soon. read hotel review
