Had a lovely relaxing week at the royale residence - the apartment was lovely and spacious, very clean and well looked after. Didn't really use the cooking facilities, but good to have a fridge and pan to warm water for coffee! I'm sure what we'll take away most from the holiday was the friendliness of the people. All the staff from hotel receptionist to cleaners to waiters and chefs, both within the hotel and at surrounding restaurants were so welcoming throughout our stay. This hotel shares the facilities of the neighbouring Le Hammamet Hotel - we breakfasted in the restaurant and ate there in the evening every other night. There was generally a good selection of food available (as a buffet) including some lovely salads and a great selection of desserts. We also ate out several times - the best find was the "Marina" fish restaurant just a short walk from the Royale Residence - although a bit pricier than other places around we were brought a platter of fresh fish, selected our own and had it cooked exactly the way we wanted. Le Hammamet hotel also has its own path to the beach and beach area (with snack bar), outdoor unheated and (most importantly for November) indoor heated swimming pool, a hammam (steam room plus massages), all of which are usable by royale residence guests. This is a great place to go to relax, for sun, sea and sand, but we found getting out to see the cultural side of Tunisia a bit of a trek - Hammamet itself (both old town and newer built Yasmine) was pretty toursity - most of the shops selling the same tourist trinkets, and as it was quiet the shopkeepers really did try to drag us into their shops - so you have to really be in the mood to go bartering - however a simple no did generally get the message across to them - best description of the locals is persistently friendly and by the end of the week we really seemed to get to know the different characters!
