Hammamet Reviews

Tunisia, Africa
Top Rated in Hammamet: Melia El Mouradi

REVIEW BY: M Notman, Brightlingsea - July 2005

I have been on holiday with the family at least 5 times to Tunisia and this is the best time I have had! There was my sister who is 14, my brother who is 10 my dad who is just over 50 and I am 18. It was perfect for all of us.
The hotel is in a perfect position, just over the road from the really clean beach. Behind the hotel are the medina (shopping centre) and also the theme park. Also 2 mins walk away down the promenade that reminded me of Miami was the marina and the ice rink (yes ice rink in Africa).
The bedrooms in the hotel where well kept clean and occasionally there would be surprises like flowers in the bath room.
The restaurant in the hotel had a wide variety of food some plain while others a bit more adventurous. Starters, main meals and desserts had about 100 choices for each. Us kids ended up just drinking Fanta my dad was on the local beer called Boca I think. The bars were really nice in the hotel and the hotel staff were always friendly but remember to always tip them.
The hotel it self had a lot going for it, there was a great outside pool and an inside heated pool. They also had a gym and lots of different pampering sessions type things. There is a little shop in the hotel where they do henna type of things, pool table and a mini club. There is also a club in the hotel but it is not that noisy and you can avoid it if it’s not your scene.
The entertainment was great and was put on each night by the animation team the group that run the mini club as well. There was bingo and a Miss Tunisia type of thing that I got roped into! It was really fun though, the animation team became really good friends by the end of the holiday and the guys are sooooo cute! There were also shows like the strongest man and belly dancing and at the end of our holiday there was a cabaret put on and performed by the animation team, very well done and it was amazing how many languages they spoke, they made our holiday, thank you, Rosa, Wissem, Zizo, Ronaldo and the rest of the team!
The mini club was great with lots of activities and a mini disco every night for the younger ones.
All of the staff were great, the pool man always help full running out to give you sun lounger covers and towels, the bar staff always friendly, there is also always a friendly smile in reception even at 5 in the morning when I got in from clubbing one evening or should I say morning. Also the cleaning ladies and the restaurant staff where always there to help.
We stayed for xmass and it was a great time because they tried to make everything Christmassy with decorations and even on Xmas morning the mini club gave out presents and all had Christmas hats on. A great party on Christmas Eve in the Broadway club in the hotel. Also when we stayed there was this guy called Billy who was soooo funny, he was from England and he wore England shorts, woolly socks, an old medal during the day then traditional Tunisian wear during the evening and he would get up on stage steal the microphone and sing all the musical songs at the top of his voice really badly that had everyone in hysterics!!!!
It was a great holiday but I don’t think its everybody’s choice! (brightlingsea)
