Tunisian Village
Ranked #65 of 119 Hotels in Hammamet
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We have just returned from our 9th visit to Tunisia, and for the first time, I have very little good to say.
We booked hotel Samira club Hammamet for a two week stay, our first mistake! although the place is clean and the food quite good, the accommodation is in cave like bungalows with bars in the windows, liks a cell, the walls are so thin, that you here the conversations of neighbouring units, and the view is a row in front of you. it is geared to younger people 18-30 group and full of drunken European and Russians. could not get a sleep for the noise of them coming and going and constant club music boom booming all day and night til 2am! great for the younger guests, but over 50s, forget it! witnessed a few brawls, and one at 5pm in reception area between French and Dutch GIRLS! had had enough by then, and asked to be moved. Our rep Samir, from A! travel. was fantastic and got us moved as soon as was possible. However! We moved to the Hotel President and Tunisian village Hammamet, BIG MISTAKE! Little Russia would be a better name, 90% of guests were Russian, 7 British and the rest French and Italian. All Inc drinks? vodka that tasted like paint stripper, boucha, watered down wine or beer that was either flat, or so full of gas that it burned your tongue. Food! queue up in a line for an eternity, to have what stew or chicken or meatballs were being served, doled out to you, like in a prison line, 3 meatballs, or 3 or 4 pieces of meat from the stew! lots of bread and salad though! 6 strawberries per person ect ect. BREAKFAST! scrambled eggs or omelette cut in strips or some kind of rice thing were the only hot options, but plenty of bread and salad lol, DIABOLICAL! we ate out all week. The animation team were great, always taking time to sit with us and chat, but we could not really understand the shows, what was being said, while the Russians were having a jolly laughing time! this hotel is deffinately NOT for the British. Have to add, this was our first and last visit to this end of Tunisia, but it will not put us off going back to Monastir, Skanes, Port el Kantoui and Souse, where we have always had great Holidays.

Wonderfull hotel fantastic gardens that were spotless facilities were first class 3 pools to choose from the food was fresh plentyfull with every taste catered for could not fault the staff they were pleased to assist in any way they could and always with a smile especially "MOMO" the lifeguard at the relaxed pool, he was so helpful and friendly and good with the kids.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will be going back next year.

We didn't book this hotel as a package. Be warned - this hotel is also called the President. You need to be aware of this as the driver didn't know the Tunisian village and attempted to leave us miles away in Hammanet. Luckily we had a fluent French speaker in the taxi.

The hotel is fine. Breakfast isn't great but it was sufficient for our needs. We can't comment on anything other than the helpfulness of the reception staff as we only used the hotel as a base. We found the staff very friendly but unused and Ill prepared to provide advice for anyone wanting to go off the resort, which we did everyday.

We did use the tennis courts most days which are not clay courts as you might be fooled into thinking from the photos. More akin to your old school tennis court but it did us ok once we got used to staying well back from the ball.

We used public transport, taxis and hired a car for one day from a hire place just to the right of the hotel. We had good service there. A car is necessary if you want to visit some out of the way treasures like El Jem. Don't be scared, just join is my advice.

We wouldn't go back again but that's not because we didn't like the hotel, rather I have vowed to never stay on a soulless resort ever again.
