Located between the Yasmine zone and central Hammamet, the Sentido Phoenicia is an institution in this seaside resort town. Open since 1973, it has changed quite a lot since its beginnings. A member of the Sentido Group since 2003, the hotel was completely renovated the same year. Although 10 years have gone by, the hotel still offers a very contemporary look thanks to its regular maintenance, as well as a multitude of activities that can be done in its 35 acre park. It is the ideal place for anyone who doesn't like getting bored but who doesn't mind walking either!

    Location 7.0 /10

    Located between the Yasmine zone and central Hammamet. It takes 45min to 1h to reach the Tunis Carthage International Airport.

    Accommodation 7.00 /10

    Despite its huge size, the Sentido Phoenicia is not the largest resort in terms of its lodgings, as it 'only' has 372 rooms and 9 suites. There are only two categories, 'sea view' and 'garden view', and they are all identical inside. It may be nice to see that some thought has been put into the decor, but the mix of styles and colours is a little less convincing: a black and green headboard, ochre tiling, a beige bedspread, a grey, blue, red or yellow rug, etc. The amenities in all of them include a safe (£1.50/day), a fridge and a plasma-screen television, and the bathrooms are traditional but functional. You may be pleased to know that the hotel does its best to be environmentally-friendly, which you can find out more about in the information pamphlets placed on the bed. In addition to 40 solar panels, recycling is part of the philosophy here and towels are only washed per request.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    The Sentido Phoenicia has one of the most original lobbies we have seen in Hammamet, especially thanks to the suspended lanterns at reception. Very spacious, there are many different waiting areas (one has blue seats, another has rattan furniture, etc.) and bars (one in the all-inclusive formula, the other not) in the lobby. Comprised of a main building and two annexes (without an elevator), the Phoenicia's many facilities are spread out in its huge 35 acre park. The owners of the Phoenicia took advantage of all this space to install some quirky infrastructures, like an equestrian centre and a driving range! As for the 'essentials' (kids club, spa, sport pitches, etc.), they are all mostly very well-maintained. Some of them are even a little more remarkable than others, like the exterior lagoon pool, which is more fun than the traditional rectangular pools!

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    Although there was really no choice but to offer a restaurant-buffet, it is clear that an effort was made to create a pleasant spot. First, the large 640-capacity dining room was divided into two sections. Next, the fresh fruit and vegetables used in the creation of the meals are put on display. Then, small lamps and little touches of colour were added to brighten up the decor. In terms of the food, we really like the salad corner, where you can create your own concoction. Although there's nothing very original about the rest of the buffet, we appreciated the effort in its presentation. In addition to the main restaurant, the Phoenicia has two more private choices: the Chinese restaurant, not included in the formulas, and the Panache, included once per stay per person. Open for dinner, the decor in both of these has been very well thought-out. The final dining option is the barbecue, but this is just for lunch and in summer. You might be interested to know that there is an entirely separate breakfast room.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    There is a big beautiful beach lining the Sentido Phoenicia. Seeing as how the park is so huge, you will have a bit of a walk to get to it! Supervised from 7:00am to 5:00pm, it is equipped with deckchairs, mattresses and parasols, all included in the all-inclusive formula. Those staying on a half-board formula will have to pay £1.50 per day to use a mattress. Although there is an extra charge for the motorised water sports, the pedalo boats, kayaks and windsurfers are free for the clientele to use.

    To know

    Open all year long, guests can choose from a wide variety of formulas in winter (half-board, full-board, everything included, etc.) but only the all-inclusive option is available in summer.
    In addition to a driving range right on the hotel grounds, it also shares a 45-hole golf course with three other hotels. Golfers can thus benefit from advantages like discounts, guaranteed tee times in high season and the possibility of a shuttle during the day.

      • Location 7.0

      Despite its belonging to the Barceló group since 2007, this hotel is not quite up to scratch in comparison with the Spanish chain's other 4 star hotels, particularly as some of its facilities are rather antiquated and the cuisine isn't what it could be. It is also surrounded by vegetation so you may unexpectedly come across some (albeit harmless) insects, but a stroll through the gardens leading down to the superb beach is a real treat, with the aromas of jasmine and orange blossom taking you back to the days of the Thousand and One Nights.

      • Location 6.0

      Opened in 1995, the Bel Air offers substandard facilities. The reception area and the rooms are great, but the same cannot be said of the infrastructures strewn around a tiny park. This is seen in the deck-chairs tightly arranged around the swimming-pool. If you want a bit of intimacy, you should head for the beach... but you have to be up for the 500 m walk from the hotel!

      Built in 1968, the Samira Club benefits from its long history by being built right at the water's edge. You'd be clever to guess the actual age of this establishment, particularly as the reception and the communal areas really look like they were built yesterday! Unfortunately though, the same cannot be said for the guest rooms, where you'll find both the decor and the amenities disappointing. On the plus side, it'll encourage you to get out for the day and maybe try your hand at some of the many activities available onsite!

      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.
