On arrival at Monastir airport it takes about 1hr 30min to arrive at the hotel. We arrived at the hotel at 4.00am and were booked in and shown to our room. Although the room was basic it was clean and we had ample storage space for our clothes. There was plenty to choose from for breakfast i.e.well stocked salad bar, bread, boiled eggs (3 and 5 min), cereal, fruit, croissants various local recipes that included fish and chicken dishes although I must admit I wasn't always sure what they were but did try a few and were found to be quite tasty.
Lunch and dinner were the same types of food and although some dishes didn't look as appetising you have to remember that you are in a foreign country and there food is totally different to ours but, if you want british then stay in Britain. The chefs did try to cater for everyone and the pasta with salad was great. The cakes the chefs made were really good and I think you really have to try the food before you write it off.
The hotel and the grounds were nice and the pools very clean but the hotel will be closing for refurbishment at the end of October and when it opens again will probably be 4* plus. The hotel had it's own part of the beach and the water is crystal clear, although we were in an all inclusive hotel you had to pay for the sunbed mattresses at the beach and for our drinks at the beach bar which I don't think is right . Our barman at the beach bar was very fluent in english and tried to be helpful. The beach is a very popular area and there are all all sorts of water sports available at a reasonable price. You can also walk from Yasmin marina beach all the way to Hamammet Medina if your up to it .
I found the staff to be very pleasant and tried their hardest to be helpful although there was a language barrier but, this will get better as the tunisian people can speak quite a few languages and think the english will get better through time.
Although we didn't do all the trips that were on offer we did go on the Pirate ship "The Sultan II" and I thought it was good although my partner did get seasick. But would recommend it.
The weather on our first week was fantastic but the second week the weather was changeable with thunder and lightning and very heavy rain, but as we went at the end of season we expected this. I would go back to Tunisia a the people are very friendly and it is a beautiful country.
