Amy Adejokun Section editor

You are best off coming here out of season, when the hotel less busy and you can enjoy more space in the bar, restaurant and gardens. The resort of Yasmine is a nice place to stroll when it is not too hot, and is a good place to enjoy a relaxing break or to make the most of the health treatments offered at the spa. Crowds descend on the hotel and the surrounding area in the summer, but young people might be attracted by the resort's party atmosphere.

    Location 6.0 /10

    In the Yasmine Hammamet area, 1600 ft from the attractions, restaurants and theme bars of the Medina. The centre of Hammamet is 7 mi away. The closest airport is in Tunis, 39 mi away, and transfer time is between 45 minutes and an hour, depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    There are 174 rooms, half of which were renovated in 2007. The double rooms measure 215 sq ft and the triples (with a sofa bed) are hardly any bigger at 270 sq ft. Quadruple rooms are also available. Family groups are advised to request adjoining rooms wherever possible, in order to maximise the amount of space available. As for the view, if you want a balcony that overlooks a bit of open space, opt for a room overlooking the pool (noisy during the day) or the road to Yasmine (traffic noise) at the foot of a garden of Mediterranean plants. The furniture is contemporary in style, and bright colours (orange rendered walls and curtains with red and green printed patterns) certainly brighten things up. The refrigerator can be used for ?3 a day, and the safes available at reception also incur an additional charge (?9). Other amenities (included in the price of your stay) include air-conditioning, a telephone and a television. Some of the bathrooms have a shower, but most of them have a bathtub. A hair-dryer and 35ml hospitality products are also provided.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The El Olf is a 3-storey building constructed around its relaxation areas. It is itself surrounded by many other buildings (hotels and holiday complexes) and, like several of Yasmine's other hotels, it is a little way from the sea. In low season, this is not an issue because you are more likely to investigate the hotel's spa facilities than head for the beach. You can either select a course of treatments or pick them individually. As a guide, a 30-minute massage starts at ?22. The treatments are made using natural products, for example the cereal face mask or Bio-Pack body wrap (a mixture of squash pulp, cinnamon, orange and cloves). There is also a covered swimming pool and a jacuzzi for use during the low season. On fine days, you can swim lengths in the 65 ft outdoor pool, or perhaps bask on the pleasant sun terrace and lawn that surround it. Deckchairs are available and straw huts provide shade, but bath towels incur an additional charge of around ?0.60 per day. It would be a really nice place to relax, if only the activities and music did not shatter the peace and quiet and there were no more than 30 or so other guests sharing the space. Unfortunately the hotel can squeeze in at least 350, which makes it hard to see how it secures its 4-star rating (local standards).

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    Meals are served as a buffet, and given the choice, it is worth booking a bed and breakfast deal as there are plenty of affordable restaurants near the hotel. Furthermore, the buffets are not hugely varied and are only moderately appetising. The Tunisian specialities served up in earthenware pots for the evening meal are the highlight of the buffet and really should be tried. The other dishes on offer would not look out of place in a canteen: chicken, spicy 'merguez' sausage or grilled fish for protein, and side dishes of cauliflower fritters, chips, rice or steamed vegetables. Dessert is a nothing more than a choice of pastries and fruit. The restaurant is located in a room next to the swimming pool, with a covered terrace so you can eat outside in the shade, overlooking the pool.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    Getting to the hotel's beach involves a bit of a hike through the streets. From the hotel, you have to walk first along one road, then another (they are more like streets, given that there are buildings just about everywhere), before you finally reach the seafront. Watch out for the traffic along the way, though. The beach is divided into concessions, and the hotel's section consists of an area measuring 330 ft by 160 ft, complete with deckchairs and straw huts. A snack bar under a reed shelter completes the setup. In July and August, a few recliners (with canopies) are also brought onto the beach. This is a very nice touch, but you need to arrive early to be sure of getting a place.

    To know

    As the hotel is located in Yasmine Hammamet, you'll find places to eat, drink and shop very close by. It is worth remembering that the Yasmine Hammamet area was created at the start of the 2000s and is therefore of no historical interest. For a spot of culture, head for the Medina, where presentations of traditional crafts take place.
    Accommodation advice
    Beware the noise. If it's peace and quiet you're looking for, ask for a room at the end of the hotel. You will have a close-up view of the hotel's boundary wall, but music from the swimming pool and traffic noise will be less of a problem.

        DANGEREUX!!!!! Je reviens d'un séjour dans cet hôtel. 1- La journée du départ, je me suis fait voler mon appareil photo numérique, 10 euros dans mon portefeuille et un haut dans ma valise alors que j'avais demandé à ce qu'on ne nettoie pas ma chambre. La chambre voisine s'est fait voler des bijoux et des vêtements. ATTENTION, aucune collaboration de la part de la direction de l'hôtel et AUCUN remboursement de la part des assurances voyages.

      • Advantages

        2- Les chambres ne sont pas prêtes : 1h pour avoir la chambre, PAS d'eau chaude, PAS de climatisation, Eau jaunâtre. 3- Bruit juste tard dans la nuit. 4- Difficulté pour changer de l'argent.

      • Disavantages

        5- PISCINE DANGEREUSE. Manque flagrant d'entretien, de nombreux carreaux tombent et restent dans le fond de la piscine. Ainsi,je me suis ouvert le pied par carreau de céramique. De plus, l'hôtel ne possède PAS de trousse de premiers soins adéquate.

      The Marina Palace opened in 1998 and still looks about the same as it did then, in spite of two renovations since 2000. However, this slightly outdated style is sure to win over certain categories of guests. The sports facilities are hidden away and the organised activities and children's club are quite simply non-existent. The hotel is therefore best suited to couples looking for peace and quiet.
