I have just returned from this hotel and had read the reviews before I left and was somewhat anxious. In fact I found it to be a lovely hotel. Much better location than most and near the old town. The newer town Yasmine Hammamet is a bit tacky and soulless. We arrived just as Ramadan was starting and it was clearly a taxing personal time for some but with one exception - late delivery of a meal - the service was generally very good and the staff lovely. The rooms even the 'singles' are very well laid out double rooms with very large beds. The double rooms all have kingsize beds. The rooms are very tasteful and noise didn't seem to travel so it was a restful quiet place to be. The pool bar and infinity pool are gorgeous and the pics do not do it justice it's a really lovely space.The evening buffet at the pool although expensive is to be recommended. The beach is really nice and the staff servicing the actual beach restaurant are really excellent, fast efficient and friendly and its a hot and difficult environment to constantly negotiate, especially as they were without food or water during the day.The pizzas are excellent especially the Vegetarian.Two gripes - getting a hot coffee at breakfast is hard work.Waiters walking around with coffee pots that go cold quickly.(Room service however is excellent and coffee was piping hot). Phone signal wasn't guaranteed except in reception but varied depending where you were in the grounds. I would thoroughly recommend the hotel it was an easy comfortable and satisfying environment to be in and it would have been easy not to leave the hotel at all. One other restaurant I would highly recommend is the Lebanese in Yasmine Hammamet which is really good. One real problem in Tunisia are the taxis.There are rarely working seat belts and drivers seem to make a phone call on their mobiles as soon as you get in cab and as no automatic gears, at times it was 'no hands ' driving. Terrifying. Also women are often 'ogled' in a really unsavoury way and as I was accompanied by teenage girls, on more than one occasion I read the riot act to men overstepping the line. I booked through Low Cost holidays and they couldn't have been more efficient or helpful. One other gripe we hired the mini bus twice. Lovely drivers but the interior, the upholstery and facias were really grubby and stale smelling - surprising for a 5 star hotel. Other than those things I would highly recommend the hotel.I think it was one of the best with selling points being location,bedrooms and the ease from room to beach to pool etc and lovely staff.
