... that sells refreshing mint tea, so we are forced to quench our thirst from a can.
We're flying back to London Gatwick on a charter flight TOM 353 which is scheduled to depart at 12:05 and arrive at 15:10. Insha'Allah.
... to our table and dishes cleared away with a flourish.
There must be some sign that marks us out as departing guests and an expectation that we'll leave a tip. Unlike the dining room, where tables are reserved and looked after by a specific waiter, guests sit at any table in the breakfast room and tables are cleared by whichever waiter appears to fancy a break from talking! Unfortunately their performance is in vain and we leave without dropping the tip they ...
... ve not had bad service, it's just that the reaturant is self-service, with guests helping themselves from the buffet and waiters relegated to clearing away. It can't give them much job satisfaction, just clearing away dirty dishes, no opportunity to tell people about what is on the menu and what they'd recommend.
Occasionally there is a florusih of activity, helping people to carry ...
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 SENTIDO Aziza Beach Golf & Spa Hammamet
Gutes Hotel, saubere Zimmer, hilfsbereite Angestellte und eine tolle Atmosphäre. Die vegetarische Auswahl war nicht sehr gut, dafür ließ sich aber immer etwas finden, auch wenn es nur Pommes waren. Der Strand war fantastisch, herrlicher Sand und ideal zum Schnorcheln. Das Hotel liegt etwa 30-40 Minuten zu fuß von der Stadt entfernt, ist dafür aber schön ruhig und erholsam.
We went for a week of sun and relaxation - which is what we got! I was dissapointed with our room, 3 times I asked for a sea view room and they just kept telling me to ask again in the morning. Not that helpful when it comes to a room change. Also the reception staff never told you where anything is such as teh tunisian dining or the Italian! A lot of guess work goes on in teh hotel.The waiters at meal times were very nice and polite, though they could do with a third more staff and meal times, it seemed to be quite usual to forget yoru drinks from all members of staff when you order them. I also was expected to sign for doubles when we had never got them, this is very strange and they must be doining this for a reason - but what I dont know? The Breakfast was ok, normally something for everyone (I am a vegi and got by on bread, tomato and pancakes). The lunch was normally the nicest food but watch carefully beacause it seems that what wasnt eaten the night before is made into another dish the next day! Dinner was guess work a lot of the time and me and my partner both had a terrible tummy for the whole week. Was never sure what caused it as food was hardly hot and glasses at the pool bar are only rinsed and not actually washed properly. The pool bar tender was nice enough but he again needed another person to help him as service was quite often 20 minutes just to get a drink (same at night in the lounge bar - dont expect to get tipsy even as it takes so long). The beach bar was not open while we were staying and we were not told how to get equipment for the beach such as windsurfing boards.If you give the pool man a few dinars on your first day that will help you through your week (rather than giving at the end of your stay - same for the waiters. If you try and stick to eating in the same areas you get the same waiters and they will look after you. Nothing to do at nighht and the entertainment the hotel supply isnt great except for the Zulu Dancers, they were brilliant. The wellness spa is ok but very over priced. We did have two good all over body massages. Generaly a 3.5 star - get a sea view if you can. Staff very nice and great pool and good beach. Go for a relaxing holiday and that is what you will get, but dont go for nightlife or too much drinking you will be disapointed. Overall nice enough.
Good time and nice hotel
I enjoyed my stay there and found the staff helpful. This was my first visit to Tunisia and found there was not a culture shock. The rooms and buffet was great. There was internet and ATM available. The currency exchange was a fare rate. The only problem was the rule of not allowing any food or drink from outside the hotel. Of course they want to sell there own, but they should lower their prices or everyone will continue to sneak in their bottles.
I just returned from my holiday where i had stayed at the azziza for a week.
We have just returned from a very relaxing week at the Aziza Hotel. As usual there were some really good things about the Hotel and some things which weren't quite so good!.
Having read the comments from this website before we went and looked at the Hotel's own website, my friend and I knew vaguely what to expect. However, the service we got when we arrived was lovely and I think this holiday has to be about the best I've ever been on.
My boyfriend and I (19yrs & 22yrs) arrived in the early hours to be greeted by very friendly reception staff - bags whisked away to our rooms for us. Very clean, good sized room with tv, fridge, hairdryer etc and definatly worth paying for a sea view. Food was quite similar night to night but very nice all the same - waiting staff all very friendly. Would recommend trip to local market (get a taxi, it is an experience!!) loads of bargains to be had. The locals are lovely so friendly and can't do enough for you. The beach (which is on the doorstep) and pool were gorgeous, always kept clean and very peaceful as no children allowed at the hotel. Mixed age ranges at this hotel, offers something for everyone - can do as much or as little as you like, and everything is good value for money. I have been to Tunisia before - love it! and would definatly return!
Good hotel, clean rooms, helpful staff, good atmosphere.
Vegetarian food choice wasn't very good, but there was always something even if it was chips.
The Beach was fantastic, lovely sand and great for snorkling.
Hotel is a bit out of town, takes about 30 - 40 mins to walk in, but it's nice a quite for a relaxing holiday.
Adored the Aziza
We have just come back from our stay at the Hotel Aziza in Tunisia. It was the most decadent experience ever! We did nothing for ourselves for two weeks. Our every wish was catered for and moving from the environs of the hotel even for excursions was an effort. If a lazy vacation with loads of sun and pampering is your idea of heaven I highly recommend the Hotel Aziza for you. The place was immaculate, the staff very helpful and the air-conditioning vital.
