The Sindbad has the benefit of being located right on a great beach, so if lazy days in the sunshine is your thing - then the Sindbad won't disappoint.
The service throughout the hotel is excellent especially in the restaurants and on the beach, where the beach waiters work really hard to serve you ice buckets of wine or water, cool beers and a full lunch menu. Well worth starting your holiday by finding your favourite spot (ours was far left, plenty of space) and tipping the waiter with a couple of quid.
The food throughout the restaurants was very high standard (we were just B&B) so can't comment on the half board fare. Personally I'd never stay HB or AI as there's so many restaurants in places like this that it would be pretty boring to stay in the hotel each evening.
For just £2 cab fare you can go into the town. We tried 4 different restaurants in Hammamet, the best by far being le Barberousse, which is located in the medina. Worth booking in advance and asking for a table with a view of the sea.
If the Sindbad needs any improvements it's in the bedrooms which, whilst comfortable, lacked any hint of luxury that a 5* hotel needs. The maid looked after us well (again a small tip each day is a good investment). Some of the communal walkways were not kept as clean as they should have been - nothing horrendous, just not prisitine.
Overall, I'd recommend the Sindbad if you like a beach hotel with good food and service to match.
