... I settled down to sleep. However with constant beeps of a medical emergency, I failed in this task. Thankfully the patient survived the trip and the rest of the flight was uneventful.
The view from the aeroplane window was breathtaking; Paris at dawn was amazing. The lights of the busy city with sun rising was beautiful.
When we landed the sun was shining in Tunisia. It was a ...
Since it's ramadan and Woman's day our workshop teaching art and crafts in kindergarten was cancelled.. so we took 2 days off and travelled to Sousse and Hammamet. This trip is really special to me because it was the first trip that we travelled with the 2 of my best friends, Sikke and Irina.
Before we went on the trip, we were only sitting in the balcony worring about our plans for the next 2 days in Sfax until Sikke ...
... etc etc etc etc. Purely Tunisian people prior to tourists arrival local families on there way to work/school. The fish photos were surreal in the sense that i helped them unload and push to local market.
I go back/side streets off the beaten track sometimes scary but needless to say it adds to the photos! The ones with the cuddly lambs in i hated because after i took them, they were slaughtered, obviously i didn't ...
Josefina, Dad, Joss and I on a four night jaunt to Tunisia. Josefina had already been there, but she was kind enough to go again, as it is somewhere I had wanted to go since 2000, where I had to cancel my planned holiday. That was going to be 7 days in a hotel, by the pool and beach. My idea of a holiday has changed since then, and this was to be much more tiring!
Arrived in resort hotel at about 8pm, dinner in ...
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 Hotel Diar Lemdina Hammamet
Just returned from a week staying at the Resdiences diar lemdina in Hammamet Yasmine, Tunisia.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was lovely. Rooms are all suites. We had the Junior (ie basic) suite, but it was a good size and had everything we needed. The hotel has two outdoor pools and an indoor one, so good for families and couples alike. Food in the hotel was buffet style with plenty of choice.
I would recommend for couples and families,but probably not group holidays as there's not masses to do. If you want a nice chilled out holiday in the sun then it's great though!
I've noticed that other reveiws aren't as complemantary as they could have been, and I say if you pay for a cheapie, that's what you get!! My partner and I have just returned from the hotel and we had a great time. Yes, the windows look directly onto walkways, but there are other windows you can open should you require ventilation which are in the kitchen and bathroom.
My wife and I have just come back from a week's holiday at the Lemdina. We were looking for a cheapie holiday in a decent hotel but with some guaranteed warmth. I had been to Tunisia before and realise that a 5* Tunisian hotel is the eqivalent of a 3* to 4* hotel elsewhere.
I stayed in Diar le Mdina, Yasmine hammamet for 1 week in October 2006. This accommodation is graded 5 star but I would not give it this grade, maybe 3+. I have previously stayed at the kanta Hotel in Port El Kantaoui and it is a 4 star gem so I was compering both and I must say The Kanta wins hands down. However, Yasmine as a resort is still developing and although pretty it is very quiet. I would describe the resort as not having any heart and soul.
On the whole we enjoyed our trip to Tunisia staying at the Residence Diar Lemdina Yasmine Hammamet. The hotel is clean with daily maid service, and the staff were polite and helpful. There are no facilities as such in the hotel apart from the restaurant that we tried once and found to be very poor, a small lobby bar with a few sofas and chairs and the two swimming pools (there is an indoor pool but this was shut). However this is more than compensated by being in the medina itself as there are bars, restaurants, evening shows etc on offer nightly. There are also shops and stalls selling the usual leather goods and hubbly bubbly! The standard of food in the restaurants that we tried in all but one was very good and we did not come across anyone who had been unwell. Yasmine is a fairly new resort, if you are looking for historic buildings you won't find them here, the medina was built in 2002 but looks good enough. A trip to Hammamet will be worth the time where the medina is authentic and the whole place is steeped in history. It should only cost about 8 dinar to get there from Yasmine(the taxi driver will expect 10!). If asked if I would recommend the hotel I would say yes, it is quiet at night, clean and the accomodation is well equipped and comfortable and it is centrally situated within easy walking distance to the beach.
I Have just returned home from Hammamet Jasmine and really enjoyed it! We stayed in Diar Lemdina which was built within the walls of the medina, i went with a group of young girls for a chilled out holiday and that is just what we got! The hotel was beautiful as was the beach and hammamet jasmine itself but we did find it quite hard to find alcohol! Although the wine is good!Food is cheap although its usually just pasta and pizza! And knowing french is always a bonus as the vast majority of menus are in french! We Went on the Sultan Boat trip and saw dolphins! Would definately reccomend that trip! and also the trip to Friguia Park which is an animal park. In the week we were there i only spent £200 and we only payed £257 for the holiday itself inc flights, transfers and accomodation!We booked with Panorama.Overall it was a lovely holiday!
My friend and I have just got back from an amazing two-week holiday in Hammamet Yasmine (Diar Lemdina Hotel). I have to say we travel a lot and everything from the room to the food to the locals to the beach and sites exceeded our expectations.
This is a great place to stay as it is part of the new medina (built 6 years ago) which has just over 20 bars and restaurants and a million market stalls where a haggler can have so much fun.
Hi! we r just back from a week in diar le medina and had 1 of the bst holidays ever, both my husband & myself totally loved it!! The hotel itself is beautiful and looks so impressive when u 1st pull up outside the medina; looks like a big walled medieval castle r something!
The Diar Lemdina is tucked in a corner of the resort Medina (a traditional walled market) which looks medieval but was built just a few years ago. The Diar is a five(ish) star three storey hotel of about 100 rooms and therefore far smaller and, we found, more friendly than many of the mega hotels in the area.
