Hotel Bel Air
Travel Blogs from Hammamet
Enfidha airport is gleaming in the hot sun when we arrive for our flight home. Check in effortless and security, despite the recent troubles, is light touch.
It's a modern day oasis, which is somewhat souless and seeming ...
So after the final supper, the final breakfast. We are treated to exceptional service from the waiters this morning. Breakfast like lunch and dinner is self-service so all the waiters have to do is clear away and lay the tables.
Without being harsh, service at breakfast isn't slow it's nearly non-existent with waiters more intent on chatting with each other than clearing the tables. But this morning we seem to have captured their full attention and coffee ...
... refilling drinks, but it is sporadic and seems to happen when the fancy takes them or when guests are about to depart.
Finally the time comes, our meal is over and it's time for the tip. We give some notes to Gracie to give to the waiter. He seems to appreciate the gesture. Slipping the notes into his pocket he disappears into the kitchen and presumably home for the evening.
Arriving back at the hotel I head for the water dispenser adjacent to the bar and quench my thirst.
It sure was hot out there and unfortunetly I was without money so couldn't stop off for a drink on the road from Sousse.
So after a shower and change of clothes, I was actually dripping wet, I feel a lot better and can genuinely put my feet up!
This morning Sue, Josh and Grace are going cruising on a catamaran out of Port El Kantaoui.
Three hours sailing in the Med is a nice way to relax, especially when the captain drops anchor which means that it's time to go for a dip in the azure sea to cool off. After a refreshing swim the cruise continues and the catamaran head back to port!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bel Air Hammamet
I have just returned from hammamet where i started off staying in the Hotel Emira which was awful, bad food, bad location and bad security. i complained and was upgraded to the BelAir.
I was impressed with the Belair all round. The food wasn't the greatest but there was a lot of choice and it was certainly edible (unlike the Emira). It was in a more lively area and there was also a lot to do in the hotel such as bowling and pool.
Entertainment team were great, especially Nino, he was a nutter - Legend!!!
I would stay there again if i was ever in Hammamet!
my husband and i were so looking foward to our first trip on our own after thirty five years married like the lady from london i too had checked the reviews and thought it seems okay we were so dissapointed the food was terrible we tried to eat it but we just couldnt we thought the noise was a bit too much so late at night but we never complained because we didnt want to appear kiljoys the food outside the hotel was no better greasy chips we both took really bad stomach upsets and had to get tablets at a pharmacy the beach was the best i have seen we spent most of our time there we gave up shopping we were tortured every time i couldnt put up with it if they would leave you alone to browse people would probably buy more i did not see any cockroaches believe me i would have left right away if i hadthe entertainment is geared more for children and its just as well as there is nothing for them to do only play in the pool we will not be back bel air again
PLEASE DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER STAYING AT THIS HOTEL! Please Read all of this report.
Me, the girlfriend and 10 month old daughter all enjoyed this holiday, the three entertainers Nino, Zico and Kaka really went out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday and never felt left out, was always plenty to do in the first week although we found the second week a little repetitive. The weather was excellent very hot, and we only had 2 nights of rain. we found the food quite poor i must admit, and there were a number of people in the hotel with the runs for the duration of their stay including the three of us. This was the only down point of the holiday. We found the beach very pleasant, and enjoyed visiting frequently. We didnt reallt rate the shopping area's such as the medina's and found it alot of hassle withthe tunisians not leaving us alone in there. But all in all we had a great time and would definatly return one day.

Loved the whole experience
Four of us girls went on holiday, was met with a lovely reception. The hotel and the staff were brilliant, coming back in October.
Myself, sister and her friend went to the hotel bel air in hammamet tunisia in june this year. We only went for a week, we all loved it. The hotel was very clean, the food was exellent a different choice every night, there was a lot going on during the night time, there are entertainment themes every night, with the snake charmer, belly dancer and so on, which is all very entertaining. The staff cannot do enough for you during your stay, there was a mix of young and old staying at the hotel it says the hotel is ideal for couples but we where three young women on our own and we had no troubles or problems in and out of the hotel. The bedrooms are kept clean you get clean towles and bedding every day of the week. The only snag i would have was the air conditioning was not on when we went and it was very hot!! just a pitty it was not turned on a bit early in the season (you could do with it)I loved it so much im going back to the same hotel in september this year with my husband and another couple the night life seems good enough, a few bars near the hotel outside there are plenty inside, and i felt 1 week there was not enough. The staff try and get you to join in during the day with the activities but if you say no you are left alone.
Excellent al round
excellent hotel. rooms are nice and clean but simple.cleaned daily. staff will go out of their way to help and make you feel not just welcome but special,i have a soft spot not just for this hotel but for tunisia in general.the people are really friendly and contrary to popular belief it is safe to go out of a night.iworked as a holiday rep in the summer of 2003 and that is were i met my lovely husband.
We loved this holiday
My husband and myself honeymooned for a fortnight at the hotel Bel air in tunisia. It was the loveliest place with plenty to do in the day and the evening. The hotel entertainment were absolutely fantastic (mimi and sam especially). The food was basic but acceptable and the local ammenities were fine. The beach was beautiful and the weather fantasitic. We couldn't have wished for a better time and hope to return this year.
Loved the entertainment
although the hotel restaurant was to small for the size of the complex due to the recent extension of apartments the food was very good. the complex entertainment was excellent during day and night, ideal for children and adults accordingly. pool facilities were very good and cleaned every morning. apartments on the road were very noisy and if you are a family not adviseable. beach site for hotel was found to be dirty and out of date needed their facilities modernising. on the whole it was a very enjoyable holiday, recommended.
