★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Tunisia”, ”Tunisia”, horizontal]
A rather dated 4-star offering, with an abundance of traditional Tunisian decor in the communal areas. A Belle Epoque style towering light is the feature of the foyer and looks up to ornate ceilings and chandeliers.
The pool is an acceptable size for the number of rooms onsite and there is direct access to the beach from the grounds. An all inclusive package applies although many guests stroll along to the centre of Hammamet for a drink or meal at the medina.
Sees a wide range of nationalities including many Russian guests.
In the northern stretch of properties, in a row of three sister establishments, just over 1km (0.6 miles) north of Hammamet’s ancient medina. Congress centre immediately adjacent and a row of shops and eateries located along the opposite side of the road, outside the main gate. Jimmy’s nightclub and a casino are located approximately 200m along the road. Taxis wait outside for the journey into town or beyond.
Narrow stretch of beach immediately outside the grounds and has some rocky patches alongside. A private area is well maintained in the summer months and is occupied by a good supply of sunloungers and parasols.
45m free-form pool has an ornamental bridge and a wide, well maintained surround. Good supply of sunloungers and parasols on the paving and adjoining lawns. Well manicured shrubs and swaying palms add character and shade. A bar has a service of drinks and snacks.
