Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Diar Lemdina hotel stands out among the other establishments in Hammamet. It's tucked away in the heart of the new medina of Hammamet, thus making you feel like a local resident of the town. Despite being modern, the hotel does not lack detail. However, this location also means that you'll have to put up with the noise usually present in the medina, i.e. loud music, constant background noise, etc.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Diar Lemdina hotel is located in the centre of Yasmine Hammamet, one of the most modern neighbourhoods of Hammamet. This neighbourhood is home to over 25 restaurants (some of which offer live shows), a casino, more than 30 cafés and a plethora of shops (Tunisian craft, groceries, drugstores, etc.). This is the only hotel in the new medina of Hammamet. The establishment's private beach is a little more than 300 meters away and it should take around a five-minute walk to get there. The marina is about half a mile away, the centre of Hammamet is 6 mi away and there are two golf courses around 2 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The double rooms are different. They have neither balcony, nor a kitchen. The bathroom and toilets are in the same room. The remaining 200 suites include 13 junior suites, 61 senior suites, 109 ambassador suites and 7 royal suites. The difference between these resides in their area (25 sq-meters for the junior suites and 170 sq-meters for the royal suite), as well as in the number of beds or sofa beds. All rooms are spacious and comfortable so you'll never feel that there isn't enough room. Their decoration is highly functional and boasts the same Arabic palace style that is common to the rest of the hotel. The furniture is both modern and comfortable, and displays some tasteful elements of the Arabic style. Each room includes satellite TV, a safe (extra charge: 1.5 dinar/day), a mini fridge, a hair-dryer, etc.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    This is a modern establishment reminiscent of an Arab palace, seen in the simple stone facade, the outdoor pools (structured like a gift of providence or the playground of heaven, as per Muslim architectural traditions) and in the decor of the rooms and communal areas. Added touches to this atmosphere include the scent of jasmine, the olive trees outside and the staff's uniforms. The structure of the complex and its interior decoration are all harmonious with the general style of the hotel, and are tasteful and very well achieved. The hotel complex consists of 250 rooms including 50 double rooms. The remaining accommodation units are suites. The hotel has three swimming pools (two outdoor pools and a heated indoor pool), a main restaurant located within the hotel (in addition to numerous other restaurants in the medina), two bars (at the beach and in the entrance hall), a Moorish café, a fitness centre (open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm) and Turkish baths (open from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm).
    In addition to these facilities, guests of the Diar Lemdina hotel enjoy quick access to the tourist attractions of Yasmine Hammamet. Among these, there is the Carthage Land theme park (about 20 attractions for children and a mini zoo), various museums (on the history of Mediterranean civilisations or the history of Tunis), art galleries, a casino, a plethora of shops, etc. On top of these there are numerous street shows to enjoy, where typically Tunisian characters are depicted. There is also the dance of the seven veils, snake charmers, camel tamers, etc. There are also two car parks, one of which is indoors, available to guests. Wi-Fi is accessible in the entrance hall and in some of the suites, but the connection is quite slow.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    The Diar Lemdina hotel has a main buffet restaurant that blends international gastronomy and local cuisine. It offers a wide selection of meat, fish, soup, vegetables, salads, fruit, ice-cream, etc. The food is good and the dishes are well prepared. It's difficult to think of anything to complain about at the end of your meal. The restaurant serves breakfast (from 7:00 am to 10:00 am), lunch (from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm) and dinner (from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm). You can also enjoy a snack at the beach bar at any time of the day, or you can simply enjoy a drink at the bar in the entrance hall or at the Moorish café.
    There is also an impressive selection of restaurants close to the hotel. There are Tunisian restaurants, which often put on live shows, but also Italian, Chinese, Indian, Japanese, and French restaurants. A total of over 25 establishments ! You will also be able to choose from the medina's thirty-odd cafes where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage, or some mint tea with a local pastry.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    The private beach of the Diar Lemdina hotel is a five-minute walk away, at a little over 300 meters. To get there you have to pass through a series of streets in Yasmine Hammamet, which are usually bustling with tourists. However, unlike the traditional Tunis souq, you won't feel hounded by shopkeepers and haggling is a forbidden practice in the shops of the Medina. Instead all items are sold at a fixed price. The hammocks and plastic sunshades available at the beach of the hotel are free for hotel guests. There is a water sports' club not far from the beach and it offers a wide selection of sports and games. Generally, the beach is quiet and clean all year round.

    To know

    This establishment owes its uniqueness to its location, in the very heart of the new medina of Hammamet. However, this comes with benefits and disadvantages: for a few days you'll become a local resident of the city (or even a sultan since the hotel resembles a palace), but in exchange you have to put up with the medina's atmosphere, the constant flow of tourists and shopkeepers (until the early hours of the morning in the summer). The hustle and bustle, the music, and any other sounds can have a significant impact on your ability to rest during your stay in the Diar Lemdina hotel. You should note that the rooms that afford a pool view are a lot quieter. However, these are reserved for guests who stay in the hotel for an extended period. 80% of the rooms are actually suites and are fitted with a small kitchen.
    The establishment invites each of its guests to dine in one of its restaurants in the medina, and to enjoy a live show, the "Scheherazade and the 1001 nights" (drinks are not included); you'll be able to taste local Tunisian cuisine while admiring the dance of the seven veils. The "all-inclusive" formula does not include the drinks served at the beach bar. The hotel staff speaks English, French or German. As far as the catering is concerned, there is the main restaurant, with its gastronomic buffet. The hotel provides all the necessary information to guests wishing to play some golf.

        Como alojarse en el corazón de una medina con el lujo de un buen hotel. Eso sí, infernal el ruido algunas noches: mucha fies, poco silencio

      • Advantages

        El encanto del lugar y la decoración. Está al lado de una medina moderna, llena de tiendas, restaurantes y un parque de atracciones infantil

      A modern hotel that does not deserve its 5-star category. Even though the nmerous entertainment will please the children and the parents and that the beach is close by, you should not expect great luxury. This is why Easyvoyage takes two stars away from it but recommends it to families wanting to have fun and rest at low cost.

      This is a 4 star hotel that doesn't deserve more than 3, not only because of the appearance and the condition of the rooms, which are simple and not luxurious, but also in terms of the food, where variety and quality are rare. However, the establishment remains affordable and perfect for those who want to spend a few relaxing days by the sea without spending too much or expecting too much in terms of services.

      The newest arrival in the Vincci family, the Flora Park is an utter oddity in the tourist area of Yasmine. Opened in April 2010, it joined the very exclusive club of charming hotels in Hammamet after a complete 4 month renovation. This boutique hotel holds 100 guest rooms conducive to relaxation... but not to keeping busy during the day! Sports facilities are few and activities are non-existent. We would first and foremost recommend it to couples.

      Hammamet's first 5 star Prestige hotel, The Russelior could have easily snapped up a sixth star without any hang-ups in this area bursting with family club hotels. Having opened in April 2010, this hotel is on a mission to give the luxury hotel sector both in Tunisia and abroad a new image, a far cry from the bling-bling luxury of certain other establishments. The very successful result of its endeavours certainly makes this hotel worth a stay, or at least a visit so you can see its spectacular lobby!
