Medina Solaria & Thalasso
Ranked #15 of 119 Hotels in Hammamet
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Visited the Solaria and Thalasso mid of June for a week's break with my girlfriend. Everything was as expected and at times our expectations were exceeded. The hotel is just beautiful and the staff really attentive. This holiday was made even more special as I proposed to my girlfriend while out there. Special thanks to Noura the receptionist who went to great lengths to make everything special for us. She is an absolute gem who can add that little extra to your holiday. Also special thanks to (his name starts with M. can't remember his name) the bold waiter at the main restaurant who always gave us a window table and remembered our drinks.The animation team did a good job but can't really comment on it as we were out almost every night. Thanks to everybody at Solaria for a perfect holiday.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled as a couple

We have arrived home today from a week at this lovely hotel and are missing it already!

FOOD & DRINKS
We looked forward to every meal which was varied, well cooked and delicious. The beer and cocktails were also lovely and consumed regularly!

SERVICE
The service here cannot be faulted. Every waiter/waitress and bartender was friendly and attentive, and the animation team invited you to join in with activities but weren't pushy.

LOCATION
Perfect - located between the harbour and the purpose built section of Yasmine Hammamet (Carthageland etc), and of course right over the road (not too busy) from the beach.

ROOMS
Unfortunately this is where the hotel could be improved. Our room was quite attractive and it was large and bright, but it was a little outdated (TV, chairs, bed cover) and the beds were not very comfy. The sea view we had paid a little extra for was FAB.

THE FREE STUFF
This hotel offers so many free activities to guests in and out of the hotel! We took advantage of them all and they were all well worth doing bar maybe the dine around as we found buffet restaurant to be nicer:
-Entry to theme park Cathageland
-Entry to Aqualand
-Tunisian dinner and show at the medina
-Hammam treatment (steam room)
-Dine around (choice of 3 a la carte restaurants: Italian, Moroccan, Mediterranean).

I would definitely recommend this hotel and in terms of the trips that aren't free...you HAVE to visit El Jem it is an absolute wonder of the world, and we did a catamaran trip booked with Sammir at the hotel and absolutely LOVED IT. So relaxing and dolphins swam right up and jumped along with our boat: priceless memories!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms worth the extra!

This was our first visit to Tunisia and found it to be very friendly and welcoming. Brilliant Hotel with great facilities, food/drink and staff. The waiters/barmen were very obliging! The animation team were so energetic and made our stay extra special! A special Hi and thank you to DJ Marwen and Joe! Excellent choice of Hotel and very central for the beach, Medina, shops/cafes and restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel. For the first time ever we returned home with money we hadn't spent!

Young couple first time visiting Tunisia. We weren't sure what to expect when arriving at the hotel but we didn't think it would be anything quite like this. Not a single thing was wrong the entire week, the room was gorgeous and clean everyday. Arrangement of bed sheets was spectacular ranging from fresh flowers to swans. The bar staff and waiters were polite, helpful and friendly and will cater to whatever you require to make your stay comfortable. The entertainment team were tremendous, every night there was something different to do and to enjoy! The spread of food at the buffet was varied and well prepared! Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone visiting either solo, business, couples, family and friends!

P.s check out DJ Marwen in the animation team!
