The customer service at the hotel is very good. The only exception was the consigner, who didn't seem well informed at all. He was really more like the bell staff. We were asking about local attractions and he didn't have any specific information about operating times, cost of taxi fare or directions. Just kept saying "it's open". The waitresses and...

Great hotel and great service but sadly marred by witnessing a hooker doing business at the bar; it goes on - but not in my face or when there are families with children near by. For a higher end hotel this isn't acceptable and needs to be dealt with.

Dear Vicky, I am pleased to see that you found the hotel great and at the same time disappointed at the incident that happened at the pool terrace restaurant. I have since dealt with this matter with our security department. Please do not hesitate to contact me when making your next reservation on panos.panagis@radissonblu.com Kind Regards Panos Panagis

Visited in june16. Friendly courteous staff. Very good food. You may opt for local taxi as hotel car is quite expensive. From hotel to airport local taxi took 5 dinar and for the drop hotel car took 20. Overall a very good experience.

I spent four nights here. The service was good. The food served at this hotel was great! Alcohol and pork is served here but not during Ramadan. Average price for a draft beer $12. Angus burger & fries $15. The hotel pool was awesome. Be prepared for a lot of children going crazy poolside.

The hotel facilities and location are good. However the staff are terrible. Be aware people they will steal things from your room and if you forget anything at checkout no matter it is valuable or not they will keep it telling you they didn't find anything in your room. Worst experience ever. I don't recommend it to anyone as you...

I was in love with this hotel. The only thing that would have made my trip better is if I wasn't visiting during Ramadan. The staff was friendly. The shuttle was fantastic. The food at Kontiki was excellent. The pool felt great. My room was huge, and the bathroom was immaculate.
