    Location 10.0 /10

    In Hammamet south, 655 ft from beach. The town centre is 4 miles away. The closest airport is the one in Tunis, 37 miles away. Expect around 1 hour without traffic, 1h30 if there is traffic.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    There are 208 rooms in total. 154 of them are located in the main building where the entrance hall is located. The others are located in two-storey blocks spread out into the gardens. Ask for a room there so that you won't be bothered by the noise of the entertainment. There is no difference for the view (of the gardens), except for the rooms on the last floor of the main building (they overlook the sea). Good point for families: the 154 rooms of the central block have a sofa-bed and can therefore accommodate 3 people. No extra room at any rate: 270 ft² for standard rooms, a bit more for the 16 quad rooms. As for the decor, simplicity is the rule: white floor and walls, red or blue ceramic headboards. That's all! Features available: satellite television, tiled floor, direct telephone, balcony or terrace, bathroom with bathtub, hair dryer and welcoming Thalassa products.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Installed in several 2-storey blocks spread over a 10 acre property, the Thalassa Shalimar has many features to spend an active week with your family or among friends. A big 12,912 ft² swimming pool where some can swim and the other play in the water. Lawns with palm trees and shaded with straw sunshades. You will find the sports features of a club (tennis courts, omnisports terrain, and archery). The architecture of the common areas (entrance hall, front desk, livings) associates Tunisian details (carved limestone frescoes) and Arab-Andalusian (columns holding bicolor stone vaults). Another element to notice: the health centre. It only has 4 cabins (3 for massages, 1 for esthetic cares), but it offers a large choice of treatments, à la carte or in cure of 4 and 6 days.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    In the main restaurant, set yourself preferably at the terrace: there will be less noise than inside. Buffets at the three meals, with a good variety of international recipes and specialities (Tunisian or Mediterranean). Unfortunately they have a lot of success: you cannot always have seconds... Late risers and snack lovers will be able to eat between meals (sandwiches, pizzas, pastas and pastries). A many drinks as you wish and even outside mealtime, including local alcohols.

    Beach 6.70 /10

    You get to the beach crossing the gardens of the hotel then going along a road with no cars. The beach is 655 ft away. A furnished space with 120 thatch huts stretches over 655 ft long and 330 ft wide. There is a snack-bar if you are thirsty or hungry. Nautical sports are limited: kayaking, pedal boat and windsurfing. It is possible to practise motorised sports in the boat clubs of the surrounding hotels (with supplement).

    To know

    The all inclusive formula allows you to eat, drink at will, all day without paying extra. Know that restaurants have schedules. Once they are closed, food is offered as snacks (less choices than at the buffet).

      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 10.0

      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.
