Set on a long, gold-sand beach and surrounded by palm-filled gardens, this hotel has bagged one of the prettiest spots in Hammamet. And the whole place has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of the setting. Cue whitewashed bungalows metres from the sand. Restaurants with open-air terraces. And winding footpaths on manicured lawns.
When all you want to do is take it easy, pick a spot by one of the hotel’s pools. One is bordered by a spacious, lounger-dotted terrace, while the other is framed by landscaped gardens and towering palms. If you’re feeling energetic, there’s plenty to do. On the sports front, you’ve got tennis and volleyball, not to mention a state-of-the-art fitness centre. In the evenings, it’s all about live music and professional shows.
The hotel’s dining scene is just as impressive. The main restaurant serves up huge buffets, with show-cooking stations taking pride of place in the well-dressed dining room. Themed buffets are held too: three evenings a week in summer, twice a week in winter. You’ll also find three à la cartes dotted around the grounds.
Lastly, the bedrooms deserve a mention. They’re large and comfortable, and have a palatial feel. Latte-coloured walls are offset by pale-gold soft furnishings, while oversized headboards sport detailed wood carvings. Each one comes with air-conditioning and satellite TV. For the best views, book a sea-facing room.

Excellent service and food but slightly faded grandeur
We stayed here for a week, full board, in one of the bungalow rooms in the lovely grounds of the hotel. The room was large and comfortable with patio outside: absolutely enormous bed, free safe and fridge with complimentary water and soft drinks. The bathroom was ok although the extractor ceiling vent didn't work (and wasn't fixed in spite of reporting it 3 times - the last time we were given a ridiculous story about it only working for certain hours each day ...) This was a shame although not a major problem because the Director has said that his staff would deal with any problems and report back - didn't happen. The main atrium of the hotel contained a water feature and lots of chairs and tables adjacent to a bar area and the main buffet restaurant. A wonderful haven for me as was a mixture of smoking and non-smoking areas with very good ventilation so my non-smoking husband wasn't troubled by smoke (and he is very sensitive about this). On the package we had, all local drinks were included - we drank mostly wine and beer - both excellent. Food was served in the large buffet restaurant - wonderful quality and variety with white fish, lamb and creative vegetable dishes being the highlights for us. Was slightly disappointed that there wasn't more seafood as we saw lots of it in local fish shops. We were there out of season so the other two restaurants (Tunisian and Italian) were not open although the Tunisian one was opened for a couple of evenings (one had to book early as only seated about 30). We ate there one night and were rather disappointed by the quality - seemed a rather westernised version of what we were hoping for (we compared it unfavourably to a local lunch we had on one of the trips which seemed more authentic to us anyway). As the main buffet restaurant usually had a least a couple of Tunisian dishes on, I wouldn't bother with booking the Tunisian one. The main restaurant had themed evenings but there was always pasta, meat, fish, salads and vegetables available with carvery too - loads of choice - we had trouble not eating too much! The entertainment team worked very hard - sports during the day and then music/dancing every evening - some very good eg local dancing - some less to our taste eg bingo and karaoke. We were particularly impressed with the wonderful service of bar staff, restaurant staff and the entertainment team - without exception all very friendly and efficient. Overall, the hotel is slightly less glossy than some other equivalent hotels we've stayed in but the service was the best we've ever experienced. Just one thing to add on location: if you go in season and get sun and warmth then this is a good place to be - the beach is lovely - but in our rainy, cold and very wet week we found that the location - about 1 hour's walk in either direction to Hammamet or Jasmine Hammamet along a busy main road (too cold to walk along the beach although we did do it once) less than ideal.More

Weather - too early for the heat this week but next week on looks great. Staff are brill. Tarik in the bar. Ben in the restaurant. Tracey the rep. Best rep we have ever had. Heidi made sure bar area ran like clockwork. Going to book for winter sun 2015. More
Lovely hotel but give Tunisia a wide berth
Loved the hotel, spent a luxurious week with family at this palatial hotel. I knew there was something missing when we were on the coach from the airport. After a week I felt like a prisoner being set free. It was unsafe for 4 women to be alone anywhere outside of the hotel. We were constantly pestered by the local people. Such a shame as the climate is very good and the hotel good. Wont be going back.More

Just got back from a 2week stay here, thoroughly enjoyed the place. The food was definately 5x, different every day, themed nights for dinner. On our late arrival they had put on a cold buffet for us which was needed. Our rooms were excellent, clean and very spacious. The staff went above our expectations from Radwean on reception to Tarek, Ramzi, Kahled and one we named Tyson in the bar and all the restuarant staff and cleaners.all the staff were very clean, smart and representable. Animation could have done a few more activities but saying that it is their winter. The evening shows were ok, some good some not so good, again it's their winter. The internet which is free in the lobby was very hit and miss as to weather or not you got a signal. The grounds and beach were kept very clean. My sister in law had one problem which was Hedi in the bar wouldn't leave her alone,he would keep waiting outside of the bar area knowing she had to go that way to her bungalow, kept asking her to go for a drink with him, we were told he would want more! She didn't want to complain as she didn't want him to get into any trouble. Didn't find Tracey much help, she seemed to find people she liked and stuck to them when she was in the hotel. Anything we needed to know they would answer at the reception for us. Outside of the hotel was very quiet, there are no shops in walking distance, you need a taxi which is cheap. There is a market on a Friday, it starts to pack up around 1:30, agree a price with the taxi before you go, around 30 dinar return (about £7 sterling) the rep will charge about £25 per person for the market, lunch and wine tasting. All in all it was a very enjoyable holiday and the hotel and staff were all 5x plus.More
