... spell had meant that we left Cornwall with plenty of time before the flight, in case of accidents on the road. Other airports around the country had either cancelled flights or delayed ones. Ours seemed to be ok and on time. Once we'd checked in, we sat in the departure lounge watching the breaking news story that Whitney Housten had died.
Despite the ice our flight left on time at around 5:45am. ...
... immediately for 2 hours after swimming in the sea, then we woke up to watch the sun set.
This trip was alost the best trip that i had during this exchange, it was so nce to travel in just a group of 3 and we were all very spontaneous. we didn't have any plans nor did any research before hand. We just follow the lonely planet as we went. I wish i can go just by the 3 of us again to a trip in the next coming 2 weeks... :)
... have a couple of tens, give him one( AS IF?) and ask him to come back.
The advantage of going this early is that i was not hassled by anyone as the locals were arriving/stall holders getting ready. Being an ex market stall lad (petticoat lane the real one that is!) i just went with the flow. Superb atmosphere and the place is awesome/huge think car boot plus veg plus fish plus livestock plus bike plus fruit plus pottery ...
... as recommended by Lonely Planet - was decent food here and very good service. The guy even let us use his phone for free.
Walked via souk back to start of medina, and then Tuk Tuk ride back to Port El Kantoui. Joss particularly enjoyed this, dad was clinging on for dear life!
Afternoon on beach and then by pool. Enjoyed by all. Evening spent in hotel as too lazy to go out and another early morning ...
... local cheeses for a dessert. Enjoyed every bite and actually started to feel sorry for ourselves having to leave the next day.
All in all a perfect relaxing day. I could really love that type of Tunisia - with loads of sun, relaxing atmosphere and with amazing food and drinks. Such a pity the beginning of our stay was so unfortunate (weather-wise), it would be a fabulous holiday if it wasn't for the bad weather we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dar Khayam Hotel Hammamet
the dar khayam is the best hotel we have ever stayed in the staff are very friendly they include nagi,chagie,murrad,sam,macram,midou,insaf,rio,tomy,hassian and jojo they are all the animation team who work very hard all day and all night never complian and allways have a smile on there face even when they are ill.the rooms were cleaned daily and fresh flowers on our beds the pool was also cleaned daily.we would recomend the camel ride it was great fun dressing up and dancing and it only works out about £15 in english money for 2 hours.the food was great something for everyone,kids are very welcome at the dar khayam they are looked after by sam he is great with them. we loved this hotel that much that we have already booked to go back august next year, so if you are thinking of going to the dar khayam book now before you miss out.
We came back from the Dar Khayam yesterday and never been so glad to get back home. There was 5 of us that went 3 being teenagers who found it very boring with nothing to do. To old for the kinder disco and to young to join in the activities which was advertised for children 12 - 16. When some of the games went on the children were made to get out of the pool, which wasn't very fair. Food was very much the same day in day out, if you have a fussy eater they'll go hungry. When waiters tried to be friendly they were shouted at by the head waiter, theres one rule for some and not for others i.e when we took a bottle of drink to the table we were told to take it back, but when you looked around other people were allowed to have bottles on their tables. It wasn't just us that felt this way we spoke to numerous other english people who said the same, and they also wouldn't be returning. The only good part of the holiday was meeting Latif (The camal man) he was absolutely fantastic, he always came over to us to say hello. We certainly would NEVER return to this hotel again and would't recommend it, especially if you have children.
Another Great Stay at the Dar Khayam
Just got back from another great stay at the Dar Khayam. Was on my own but made very welcome by all the staff, they were always making sure i was ok.
I would say the only thing that spoiled it was the fact that i had to get to the beach by 7am to get a Sunbed, unfortunately guests from another country didnt appreciate that a solo guest was as much entitiled to a sunbed!!!
But will definately be back! But maybe will need to find a travelling companion!!
Arived on time thanks to Thomas Cook Airlines. Hotel room a little basic but clean and well serviced by our Chambermaid. Tunisia is wall to wall sunshine and smiling faces. Food plentiful with lots of tasty vegetables all local grown and very fresh, dont expect lobster and filet steak you wont have paid for that in the low price you paid for the holiday (well I paid very little anyway), thanks to Thomas Cook T.V. travel shop. The pool area gets busy but 'Hey', walk 50 yards you are on a lovely clean safe beach with warm water and uncrowded and a 'soft drinks bar' what more do you want?. Get to know the beach vendors, talk to them; some are great characters who sit down and talk with you even though they know you are not buying. All the staff work so very hard there and not once was I treated with less than perfect civility, mind you one gets out of life what you put in so there is a small lesson for us all. Bar service was a little slow at times but when you got to the top of the queue a smiling face and drinks to go! Went on a couple of trips, the Zoo was the best for me, took some great photo's of the Tigers. All the time I was in Tunisia I felt 100% safe with no fear of crime at all, plenty of police around, there is no litter, no graffiti and no dogs mess either, the streets are swept by hand with regularity. Pop acroos the road from the Hotel to the 'Orangina' Restaurant, try a 'bric', and sample the little date cakes you get served with coffee; superb. To sum up the holiday, fantastic value for money, if you want "less for more", go back to Spain and pay what is to my mind, extortionate prices for lacklustre service. Oh I forgot, they are in the EU now are they not, another lesson for us all perhaps?.
Generally a nice hotel with a lovely beach a couple of hundred yards down a scenic path. Clean beach with small all inclusive bar. It has various beach loungers and a volleyball and beach football "pitch".
We arrived in the early hours of the morning and found the all inclusive bar had stayed open past its normal time so a chance for a drink before bed.
Fantastic, people are great from the porters to the animation team. Kids were entertained from early morning until late in the evening. We stayed here with children aged from 5 up to the age of 14, all of them are treated like stars, they were all made to feel great by all members of staff.
Just back from a week here. It was one of the most friendly run hotels we have ever stayed at. The staff make everyone, young and old feel really welcome and can't do enough for you. We didn't like the room we were allocated but a word to reception and we were given a great sea view without any problems.
I have just came back from a fortnight in Dar Khayam and can honestly say it is one of the best holidays I have ever had. The rooms were clean, the food was great and the animation team were very friendly and helpful. There was a loot for the kids to do through the day and momo, who worked at the kids club, was great with them. The entertainment was spot on, especially the michael jackson night...on which Coco looked rather fine! Overall, a great holiday.
watch out for bugs!!!!
