SENTIDO Aziza Beach Golf & Spa

... pool areas and a private beach. There are bars dotted all around the place and plenty of sun beds.
After dinner we decided to investigate the entertainment - it was certainly interesting. There were semi-naked men playing with shards of glass, a bed of nails and swords. Did their mothers not teach them that those items are dangerous?!
After a long day,we called it a night!
... were even less tourist than it orginally had, we could see that the shopkeepers are desperately in need of money and to clear their stocks out. They became so agressive in dragging tourist into their shops, they would even grab our arms while we were walking down the road.
At night, we went to port el kantaoui where we had dinner in front of the parked boats, then we went to an amusement park and had an incredible time ...
... the farmer told me not to! Very hot place lots of action going on which you could in no way photo normally. Donkeys without the impression of cruelty define that!
Colours/vibes/sounds/tunisian people go early and sample the real place. I left 0900 and that's when things get in my view worse,tourists arrive most locals go into money mode, head there and back early it's well worth it.
... 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 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.
