    Location 7.0 /10

    In the hotel zone of Yasmine, along the route of the seafront, 1,640 ft from the touristic complex of the Medina.

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    There are 236 rooms, and there are 196 rooms (452 ft²) and 40 suites (581 ft²). Three fourth of the accommodations are oriented towards the sea (on the other side of the road along the beach); the others overlook the swimming pool and the medina. The decor is sober with some local elements: floor covered in marble from Tela, Berber rugs, a framed watercolour showing a stylised scene of medina. The rest of the features is that of a high standard hotel: elegant furniture, soft bedding, bathroom with Carrara marble with window opening on the room. Shower, bathtub, hair-dryer, robes and welcoming products. The water closet is separate. Other features: balcony with garden set, air conditioning, satellite television, safe, minibar, and direct telephone line.

    Overview 7.75 /10

    Contemporary 4-storey building with glass elevator, the Sofitel Saphir Palace has been built in 2005. It has a vast lobby decorated with white marble around which corridors leading to the rooms are staggered. A bar stretches below the lobby: it has a view of the swimming pool and the garden as well as the medina of Yasmine in the background. Decor inspired from Art déco, as the furniture show it, the carpet with stylised motifs, and elements in finish metal. Outside, the landscaped swimming pool does not have a view of the sea, because it is oriented on the side of the medina. On the other hand, it has nice relaxing environment: enough room to swim (the basin is 165 ft long and 23 to 82 ft wide), a large terrace ending in a lawn to rest on. Lounge chairs, sunshades, mattresses, towels, are furnished.

    Food and drink 7.75 /10

    The main dining room is very "Accor" because of its decor. Unfortunately no change of scenery, you will have to count on the variety of the buffets. Served for all three meals, they are abundant and well presented, with in the morning, stands of show cooking for omelettes and Tunisian bread. Fresh orange juice on request, coffee served at the table. Other possible options: the pizzeria around the swimming pool, the bar with tapas having a patio, and the à la carte restaurant "La Voile d'Or" which offers the only inconvenience of being 165 ft away from the hotel. For the rest, you taste delicious specialities such as roasted kid, tartar of tuna, lobster mille-feuille, and lamb tajine. The Saphir Palace has also 6 bars, including a British style pub.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    You can access the beach of Yasmine by crossing the busy road of the seafront. The Saphir Palace has a reserved space over 655 ft long and 230 ft wide there. A small snack-bar in a wooden hut, lounge chairs lined up on several rows and shaded under parasols. The seaside decor is well-built: it is not the most beautiful in Tunisia, but the sea offers nevertheless a beautiful blue colour. Be careful, all water sports are offered by an independent club and are available in consideration of a fee.

    To know

    Named Accor Thalassa, the spa of the Saphir Palace proposes a variety of cures in a refined environment prompting you to relaxation. 5 cabins are dedicated to dry cares 7 to wet cares. Among the proposed cares, some typical recipes such as : face care with Tunisian clay or a remodelling of the body with jasmine oil. As for prices, expect to pay around 70 dinars (35 pounds sterling) for an hour care.

        Cet établissement est très en dessous du standing attendu pour un 5*. La nourriture est exécrable et le personnel est réduit à son strict minimum. De fait l'entretient et le service sont plus que minimalistes. Il ne fait pas non plus l'objet d'investissement et l'état des locaux comme des chambres se dégrade fortement. Sur le plan de la sécurité, l'hôtel n'est pas non plus très regardant ni exigeant?

      • Advantages

        L'architecture est manifestement héritée d'un passé plus glorieux. Les chambres sont très très belles, mais malheureusement peu maintenues en état.

      • Disavantages

        La prestation globale n'est pas à la hauteur pour un 5*.

      Built in 2000, this modern hotel is an ideal spot for a pleasant holiday in one of the main tourist districts of Hammamet. Although it does not have direct access to the beach, it does offer all the facilities you would expect to find in a large beachside hotel.

      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.

      Standing just a few hundred metres away from Carthage Land amusement park, the Lella Baya hotel seems to have been designed by the same architect. The decor may therefore seem as if it were made out of paper mache but the amenities are nothing to be ashamed of: a large thalassotherapy centre, a wide choice of activities, large outdoor and indoor pools, etc. All of this just a few metres away from the beach. This hotel is perfect for small and big children alike!

      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.

      • Location 7.0

      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.

      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!
