... what could be misconstrued as cynical views no doubt. The weather is starting to be more what I suppose we are to expect within Europe for this time of year but is a big change from what we have been used to but it is quite good to have a gradual return to our climate. We sail to Menorca tonight where we are due to catch up with friends so looking forward to that before heading home via Lisbon. Sent from my ...

We went to Carthage and had a very good typical Tunisian lunch in a hotel next to the remains of the Roman aqueduct and water tanks. Then to a village called Sidi bou Said which is a pretty little place built on a hill overlooking the Gulf of Tunis with whitewashed houses and blue ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Mouradi Hammamet
I have been on holiday with the family at least 5 times to Tunisia and this is the best time I have had! There was my sister who is 14, my brother who is 10 my dad who is just over 50 and I am 18.It was perfect for all of us.
Excellent care from housekeeping, restaurant, bar and pool staff. Reception staff rather remote. Great buffet, though it was ditched for a Valentines Day 8 course meal which was unsuitabl for small children. Very clean. A bit of noise form the Yasmine Beach next door and MeM disco at night at times, though we were tried out enough after long outings to crash out anyway. Probably 3-4 star, and you have to buy stamps from the hotel next door. Watch out for the Health and Safety at the Mini Club-there was no written logging in and out system and my small child was left crying, alone and locked out right next to the pool while the rest of the children were taken off to practise disco dancing indoors. Hopefully the system has been improved since I formally informed the tour operator about it.
The hotel is no way 5*, the receptionists were unfriendly & very unhelpful. However the entertainment team were extremly friendly and not to mention good looking, especially the DJ!!!! They were brilliant, we looked forward to going down to evening entertainment everyday & didnt need to go out for a good night. They also have a disco within the hotel, which was quiet as we went in low season, the entertainment team finished their jobs and then came over to join us. Its a shame the receptionists were not as nice as one would expect.
Nice hotel not a 5 star by our standards but generally ok. Dissappointed with initial reception, arrived late to hotel no refreshments or food were available. The room was a nice size although a little bit tattered around the edges. Large balcony with lovely sea view. However slightly ruined by horrendous music played over and over and over by bar next door. Such a shame as it is a beautiful area and would have been gorgeous if we'd had the peace and quiet. There is a spacious outdoor pool and nice indoor pool which was fun to use when the weather turned. The food was not bad get in early though to both the breakfast and evening buffet for a full choice. Would also recommend ordering your breakfast into your room which costs about £2.35 and you get enough to feed you for lunch too ! Most of the staff were friendly although they speak very little english so is really helpful to know your french too. One thing I would def recommend is the hamman - it is a little basic but for the under half the price of english spas you can really get your moneys worth of massage, mud packs, facials, turkish baths etc... I myself booked the beauty care 3 day package which I spread out over my weeks holiday. You get 12 treatments over three days for just under £100.
My husband and I stayed at this Hotel as part of a two center holiday with Panorama. On arrival we found the reception staff to be quite rude and unhelpful, was told, our room was not ready and asked us if we would like a drink which we said yes please but it never came, good start !!!. This was my 50th birthday treat from my husband. He paid for a Sea View Room and requested if possible highest level, we got lowest level with the roof of the Disco obstructing our sea view. The room was OK but a bit tired, in need of a paint job but was cleaned daily. The main Restaurant was buffet style (half board) the food was not very good in general nor were the waiters, however the two pool attendants were very friendly (perhaps they should work on reception). The entertainment was very basic mainly in-house. Official rating is a 5*, Panorama rating QQQQ+. I rate it 3 plus. I would not reccomend this Hotel
Hotel was more of 3 star than 5 star... Staff at reception were not very friendly and could just about speak english.
No real choice of food- didnt look forward to the breakfast.
Don't know who chose the colours for decor in the bedrooms because its gross!!! - Green carpets with grey curtains!
DONT DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Stay in Lala Baya instead... i visited this hotel it was the best one on the block..
Not bad for the price charged
Advertised as 5 stars it is actually a solid 3 star hotel. Very common situation for North African hotels. Clean, but rooms need upgrading. Fittings are pretty old. The double room size is generous, enough space. Sea views are magnificent (compensate for old green carpet and greyish net curtains). Staff is friendly, small tips are customery, but not a burden for your pocket. 50m from the beach. Meals are a bit repetitive, but Ok if you stay for a week. Would recommend the 'Cafe Maure' for fab crepes, great service and low price along Yasmine promenade. The best shop to get decent gifts is at the side of the hotel 'Safa' (three hotels to the right) - fixed low prices, no bargaining (very refreshing) and good quality. Overall holidays matched the price.
We have just returned (quite literally) from the Melia El Mouradi Hammamet. Whilst on the whole we had a good time - there are couple of things that should be brought to your attention.
We stayed at Melia El Mouradi Hammamet for 4 days only, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The services was very good, staff friendly and helpful, the area nice, if a little quiet, but if you are looking for a beach holiday, it's something for you! Relaxing by the pool is just as nice. The only faults we found were the boring animation (bingo every night???), noise from the adjacent Yasmin Beach hotel (sometimes there would be music pouring from behind the wall while our own hotel's animation team was also turning their own music full on), and the boys selling flowers outside the hotel in the evenings. They would chase you and poke it in your face with a sweet smile until you buy. We didn't, though. Re entertainment, just behind the hotel there is a newly built (in the original Arabic style) Medina (city centre), which is a very charming place to visit, with its souvenir shops (if somewhwat expensive), cafes, cosy streets and small squares, with live entertainment.
