Travel Blogs from Hammamet
For our last day of the trip we thought we should finally settle down and have a day of chillaxing in Hammamet. We walked all the way down the beach into the centre of town. There was really ************e on the beach, yet the weather was okay - warm when the sun was out, lukewarm when it wasn't. When we reached the fort we stopped for half an hour …
The Cap Bon peninsula was where the previously so reliable Tunisian train network fell short, with no lines running up this neck of the woods. However, yesterday we had run into an intrepid couple from our hotel, Maggie and Robin, at the train station who had booked private transport for the day to explore the the peninsula, and we had managed to …
We had heard from a few people at the hotel that "there wasn't much to see at Carthage", so we didn't really know what to expect when we boarded our second train to Tunis in two days, heading for the old Punic city of Carthage, now a suburb of the capital. But I figured that you can't exactly come to Tunisia and not go to Carthage, right? So the …
Today we were going to investigate the joys of the Tunisian public transport system by getting a train from Hammamet up to Tunis. As had been promised to us by our scaremonger of a rep, absolutely no part of it turned out to be an ordeal. A second class return ticket sets you back the pricey sum of 6.95 dinar (~£3.50), and the train was clean, …
There are two main parts of Hammamet - Hammamet itself, and Jasmine Hammamet. Being the southern part, we first encountered Jasmine Hammamet, which was a bit scary, mainly because the only things it seemed to contain were scores and scores of hotels and tacky shops. It turned out it had been purposefully built for tourists, and because of this it …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bel Azur Thalassa Hammamet
Just arrived back from Bel Azur 7/09/05.First the not so good,
We flew from a rainy Gatwick Airport to a very sunny Hammamet. We had been to this hotel in 1998 and were eager to return. The Bel Azur is the middle hotel in a complex of three hotels. There is a private beach, a swimming pool and an Ampitheatre. Guests are permitted to use the facilities of all three hotels.
wicked time entertaienrs brill with kids and with adults also they make sure you have a good night men very very friendly offer to take you out everywhere! anyone stay in the bel azur from the 5th june to the 12th??
Having never been to Tunisia before it was only by chance that we went due to the dates for other countries not fitting in with the time we needed to go. However, I will defintely be going back!
Was quite good
shame that the shower was out of the Ark, but the room was clean and tidy.
nice view from the balcony, food not too bad, staff mostly very helpful and friendly. 'Guides' wanting to lead you to carpet shops were a real nuisance around the town, pretended to be a waiter from your hotel - so dont be fooled by their very friendly attitude. Also constant hassle from shop staff trying to get you to buy their goods as you passed by. Fabulous beaches. Was shocked at the poverty in the areas outside the towns.
The Hotel Bel Azur is a good hotel set in magnificent gardens overlooking the sea. The bedrooms are basic but clean.
The food in the restaurant was excellent with a good choice both at breakfast and evening meal.
The bar staff and entertainment team were very friendly but the French tended to take over the Karaoke night.
ACE! Stayed here four times, with seven different people, and all have thought it is fantastic. Just remember, this is a great 3*+ hotel, but on top of that you have the 4* and the 5* facilities available. You can use all the pools, bars, etc., and a great beach. The staff are superb.
Im the friend of the 1 written below ("A lovely holiday") and
I went to Tunisia last Septemeber for a week with my three friends. we thought it was fantastic. We stayed in the Bel Azur Hotel which is a basic hotel but i found the facilities fine. There are two hotels either side of Bel Azur which are better standard but the facilities are the basically same.
This was the first time I've visited Tunisia and will be probably be the last. Stayed HB at the 3* Bel Azur. The room was BASIC and had a sea view with balcony and three single rock hard beds. Our flight arrived in the middle of the night and the hotel provided a plate of decaying fruit since we had missed our evening meal.
