Without wanting to repeat what other people have written, I'll make this as useful as I can. The transfer is about an hour and a half and we were the last drop off, but I actually enjoyed it because I got to see Yasmin Hammamet and other parts of Tunisia on the way. The check in procedure involved numerous couples just sitting waiting for rooms to be ready, luckily we were one of the first so managed to check in after about half an hour. The room had a fantastic sea view, so this is well worth it if you can get one, but they don't put air conditioning on until June, so the room was quite hot and we had to sleep with the patio doors open a few times. Spacious storage, safe in room and mini bar with free water daily. The pool guys Ali and Abdul were fabulous and made sure we had our spot and decent mattresses every day (even though some Scottish people stole ours before we got down there one day and Ali was very upset at them). The pool is also freezing, so only went in once. The lunch time restaurant has a lovely setting, if you can get a seat overlooking the sea. The staff are brilliant and very attentive. The food wasn't bad, salad bar, chips and then they varied the other dishes daily, such as moussaka, lasagne, and other dishes with lamb or chicken, plenty of veggie options too. The puddings were amazing though. The evening buffet restaurant was pretty much the same format so if you had lunch in the buffet, it did feel a little repetitive in the evenings. We didn't go to the Tunisian because the menus never appealed to us, but we did do the international restaurant 3 times and the food and service in there was very good and a lot more like a 4/5 star. The enteratinment was low key, with a magician, snake charmer, belly dancer etc. and only on for half hour or so but this is what was advertised so no complaints there. The daytime entertainment involved daily darts, french boules and zumba at about 5pm which was enjoyable to watch and music in the background aside from that was intermittent. The pool bar only served limited drinks so this was a bit disappointing, if you wanted for example a gin and tonic, they had to go up to the main bar for the short and they provided the mixer. A bit poor really, as they only really served coffee, water, beer and soft drinks. The welcome meeting from Sam was extremely good and informative so I would definitely recommend going to that. We went to La Bella Marina restaurant in Hammamet, fillet steaks for £10!, just over £50 for both of us with 3 courses each and a bottle and a half of wine so well worth it, including free transport there and back. I didn't like the beach at all, it was full of sea weed and huge rocks so we never used it, which is very unlike me. The storms may have had something to do with that, but it did disappoint me. Used the spa, which seems to be shared with next doors hotel. It was ok, not very professional though, even though the girl was pleasant, she was chatting to someone outside the room whilst doing my treatment so I wouldn't recommend that. I was a bit worried about the waiter service in the bar, but it was actually ok. The waiters are walking round non stop so we didn't have a problem with service, apart from when they stopped serving at 11:50pm when the all inclusive is meant to run until 12 - a bit naughty really, despite us ordering before the closing time. Overall, a week was enough. We stayed 12-19th May, the weather overall was good, just one day of rain (but it rained on several evenings) and it was windy too, which was welcomed most of the time. Its great for a chilled out holiday, but we made it fun on an evening by meeting Offshore Corfu Eric and Mucky Brenda, Cheryl and Louis (you know who you are). They made our evenings great and we laughed loads so thank you! I would go back to Tunisia and was pleasantly surprised by it but I would stay in Yasmin Hammamet where there is an area you can actually go and walk around with more to do, but if you are just wanting a chilled out week, this definitely fits the bill. Maybe it's not 5* in comparison to other places but maybe for Tunisia it is. I didn't think so and have been to numerous places to compare.
