No weather data found for [, ”Tunisia”, ”Tunisia”, horizontal]
A friendly and laid back family orientated establishment with unexceptional but congenial facilities. The sprawling and rather mundane looking accommodation buildings do little to inspire, whilst the happy and fun filled atmosphere ensures that many guests remain onsite making the most of the all inclusive board arrangements.
Many facilities are shared with the adjacent sister property including the spa and two of the pools. There is plenty of onsite parking overseen by the 24 hour security staff.
Sees a number of British guests as well as European families and many Tunisians, especially at weekends.
At the extreme north end of the resort with a sister property, Dar Khayam, immediately next door. A few local shops and snack outlets within a 5 minute walk of the main gates but very little in the way of tourist amenities. Taxis wait outside the main gates for transfers to the ancient medina of old Hammamet or the modern shops and Carthageland at Yasmine Hammamet.
Main pool has an ample supply of sunloungers and a wide surround providing plenty of space for the daily activities. Area may become rather cluttered at weekends and during the high season. A toboggan style slide is the feature of another pool and like the large indoor option is shared with the Dar Khayam.
