Amy Adejokun Section editor

Although the Caribbean World Venus Garden is doing very well these days, this wasn't always the case. Formerly it operated under the name 'Club Venus' with its neighbour, the Caribbean World Venus Beach, across the way. Despite this 'separation', the two clubs continue to work together and share their facilities with their respective guests. This is great news for the Venus Garden, which benefits from its colleague's numerous facilities and beach... but unfortunately not from the same decor! This is an unpretentious, 3-star establishment recommended for those on a tight budget.

    Location 6.0 /10

    It faces the Caribbean World Venus Beach in the hotel zone of Hammamet South, just over 4 mi from the city centre. Count on about 45min for transfers to and from the airport of Tunis (40 miles away).

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    There are 130 guest rooms in the main building and 80 'bungalow' rooms in a second building. Despite their name, these rooms are actually rather standard and have nothing to do with a bungalow! It would be hard to make the interior of the rooms more simple: a bed with a raspberry-coloured bedspread (that matches the curtains), light wooden furniture, and a painting of a Tunisian landscape for a touch of decoration. The same goes for the amenities: a small television, a safe and a fridge that can be used for an extra charge, and a mini balcony with a plastic table and chairs. As for the bathroom, not only could it use an update, it could also use a fresh coat of paint! We did like the floor tiling in the bedrooms, though (rather than fitted carpeting!), as well as having a safe and a refrigerator (even if there is an extra charge to use them). Indeed, most of the 3-star hotels in Tunisia do not come with these extras.

    Overview 5.95 /10

    The small lobby in the Caribbean World Venus Garden is unpretentious. Inspired by Tunisian architecture, it is furnished with some lovely beige and dark purple armchairs. However, the rest of the common areas could use a makeover, especially in terms of their furnishings. The hotel may be well-maintained but its decor is still stuck in the 90s, which is strange since, although it opened in 1995, it underwent a complete renovation in 2008. A lot less spacious than the garden at the Venus Beach, the park at the Venus Garden has much fewer facilities. However, guests will still be able to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor swimming pool, a kids club, a mini golf course and some tennis courts. This is also where you will find the group's well-being centre (the Venus Beach doesn't have one at all).

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The choice of formulas ranges from half-board to all-inclusive. Lunch and dinner are served as a buffet in a large, impersonal dining hall (which can seat 500 guests) decorated in shades of red, white and black. It is adjoined by a shaded terrace overlooking the swimming pool. The dishes are simple but every day they include a Tunisian speciality. For a bit of a change there is also a snack bar guests can take advantage of at midday. Finally, there is a nice barbecue spot set up on the Venus Beach beach where you can enjoy some grilled meat. Keep in mind, though, that it closes at 9:00pm!

    Beach 7.20 /10

    Although the Venus Garden does not have its own beach, its guests are allowed to use the beach of its aptly named neighbour, Venus Beach. You have to cross the road and walk for about five minutes to reach it. Upon arriving, you will see that it is vast and very well laid-out. Unfortunately, the sea has a tendency to be a little opaque here because of the algae (this is a common problem for all of the hotels in Hammamet South and varies according to the weather). We really liked the panoramic barbecue area here: this structure on stilts allows you to enjoy a very beautiful view over the sea. If you have opted for the all-inclusive formula, you won't have to dig into your pockets to be able to use a deckchair, mattress and parasol. There are a number of different activities you can try at the water sports club, which are included in the formula as well: sailing, windsurfing, jetskiing and kayaking, etc.

    To know

    Open since 1985, the Venus Garden joined the Caribbean World Group in 2011 and is marketed by the tour operator Look Voyages as a 'Look Hôtel'.
    Unlike its colleague, the Venus Garden is not open all year round. Its doors close at the end of October and reopen in June.

      The aptly-named Zenith hotel opened in 1995. With its colourful rooms, it is a shining beacon in this tourist neighbourhood in the northern part of Hammamet. The decor is surprisingly sunny for this 3 star establishment that is otherwise rather dull and urgently in need of renovations! However, there are numerous activities on offer that will help you forget these drawbacks and that make for a rather inexpensive family holiday.

      There are few 5-star establishments in Hammamet. Opened in 2009, the Riu Palace Marhaba is in what was once a Sheraton hotel. However, despite its status as a luxury hotel, the Riu Palace offers entertainment, an all-inclusive formula, a kids club and even sports pitches. This refined establishment with its luxurious rooms offers its own version of a palace, between a holiday-club and a city hotel.
