The one thing I don't think travelers ever get used to is the long days of travelling. This is particularly true of flying, especially as living in Cornwall, airports are so far away. I have almost exhausted all the destinations which leave from Exeter Airport. Today's flight is from Bristol.
We arrived at the airport at around 2am, another disadvantage of air travel is the times of the flight. Also the ...
... with limited budget, we stayed on the beach for the whole day, eventhough the city was quite boring, i had such a good day there, the beach was perfect for swiming, the water was at the right temperature, not too wavy, the weather was perfect as well, not as windy as sousse where the sand could cut through your skin. It was the perfect place for us to relax after a long day of shopping and site seeingwith our bags. we ...
... best. (sounds like my love life when i was a teenager) the moment you lift the camera to look some but not all locals quite rightly get annoyed. I cheat and use a decent separate zoom lens some shots quite a few are on this album.
Decided to go really early got there 0700 by taxi 22 dinars both ways including tip, same taxi picked me up at 0900, i gave him a 20 and he said he'd come back???? Mine did but may be ...
... bit of time, as was a bit mazey and had nice views. Enjoyed it in here.
Taxi (15DN) to Sousse. We wouldnt normally get taxis like this, but with four of us it was an easy option. Medina in Sousse was much bigger than in Monastir and walls on outside were impressive. Ribat was less interesting though, but still good views across to the Kasbah and ocean. Had lunch in a small cafe, just inside walls on far side ...
Our last day in Port El Kantaoui, flying back home tomorrow morning. Spent the whole day at the beach, relaxing and enjoying the sun while we can.
In the evening - another expensive but amazing visit in Le Meditarrenee. Had a delicious vegetable gratin (Pete wanted to try it for the taste and ended up eating loads and paying compliments to the chef!) and some French-style beef (Pete says it was also amazing) and a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Palm Beach Club Hammamet
I have just returned from a very enjoyable week in this hotel. All I can say is that if you have booked to go here and are now reading the reviews and worrying about what you will find when you arrive (as I was) then don't because this hotel has not been given enough credit by many of the reviewers. So read on and I will try and dispell the bad comments others have made:
Actually despite what the other review on this hotel says... this hotel isn't too bad. Its not your dream five star hotel - but thats not what you're paying for.... I just can't help getting the impression that some of the other people who wrote reviews on this hotel are just the kind of people who holiday abroad and give us Brits such a bad name through their arrogance and sheer unwillingness to accept other cultures, foods etc etc.
Just come back from a week at the Palm Beach, and I have to say it was a pleasant surprise after reading the reviews on here just before I went. The hotel itself was clean and tidy with the usual facilites, although it wasn't what you'd call posh it was pleasant enough.
My partner and I booked to go for both our birthdays, we also decided to get married and make it our honeymoon, we were informed on booking that Thompson would do something special as it was our birthdays!!!! There was a bowl of fruit in the room, but as everybody else had one I wouldn't call it special?? (the same fruit was still there on our departure and was green mouldy by this time)
everything that the previous reviews say is right this is a holiday from hell the hotel should be named faulty towers the star rating from thomson SHOULD be more than a 1 star the brochure shows as having a restraunt its more like a dirty local cafe food was terible one positive is the staff understood are frustration and tried to help but there was nothing they could do the cleaners stole from your rooms money and personal possessions i fell victim to this when i caught the cleaner helping herself in my purse the hotel was filthy as the cleaners where spending most of there time stealing rather than cleaning the entertainment was absolutley non exsisting for the kids the disco was unbeleivable with the waiter by day and dj sensation at night playing the same song over and over again wich by the way he had a vinyl player dating back to 1940 as after sick of the same song getting played i offred to bring down my cds but he went crazy saying he cant play cds with his stae of the art vinyl player the waiters where multi skilled as they where expected to be waiters butlers entertainers cleaners maintance men shocking as for the bar what 4 star hotel do you go to the bar and order a drink the bar staff told you can have one if you can go and find a glass as the had i think 4 glasses for 500 people thompson needs to seriously review this hotel as im discusted that after thousands of complaints they have done nothing about this the rating is wrong the hotel is a ruin and they are still sending poor familys here knowing full well that these people have saved up all year for a dream holiday and there sending them to the equivalant of bayrut SO IF YOUR BOOKED CANCEL IF YOUR THINKING STOP THIS IS GENUINE TAKE YOUR FAMILY SOME WHERE ELSE
we stayed at this hotel for a week as a family of four and i must say i was dreading it after reading the reveiws My fears where totally unfounded as the hotel staff where lovely and very polite and helpful starting from the porter right the way up to the manager. The rooms where clean roomy with all facilites in working order.
I will never stay at this hotel again.
The night before we were due to go off to tunisia for our holidays i happenened to stumble upon the other reviews, i thought what are we going into, i put it to the back of my mind, and looked forward to the next day. on june 15th we arrived at the airport, children all excited, only to be told at the checking in desk that the children passports had expired, we were all devestated. It took a whole week of organizing to get new ones for them, we got new flights for the following week and off we went.
8/06/2005-Had a few holidays in Tunisia but never anything as bad as this one- if it had been rated as a 2 star we could have accepted some of its faults-but its a 4star!
Dont go if you,r british
one week was enough
nice room clean hotel but the service is terrible
caters mainly for german and french
we were the first lot of brits to be sent here
it was as though we were invisible
the staff just shrugged as though they didnt know what we were talking about
even though they get taught english at school
grumpy old man at reception
supposed to be all inclusive ran out of beer we had to go downstairs and PAY for it
nothing for kids except a man dressed as a dog running about on an evening
nothing to do around the hotel just a couple of shops and cafe,s
NOT RECCOMENDED FOR ENGLISH
