    Yasmin Hammamet is just ok
    If you are from the US you will understand what I mean when I say this, but Yasmin Hammamet is a cross between Wisconsin Dells and the Gulf Shores. The place must of been hit hard by Covid sine quite a few of the stores/restaurants are closed. Where we stayed which was the Hasdrubal Thalassa & Spa it was fine with a wide open beach, but in our walks the beach was ok. This is clearly a place for people with families that are looking for all inclusive options. The image I cannot get out of my head t hough are Cinderella like carries and the blue train shuttle to take people around form their lodging to the beach. Would I recommend the place - no. It needs a couple of years to refine and clean up the area.

    Shame locals spoilt it nit coming back
    Last visit was 18 years ago to Port El kantaoui. This time very disappointed people were very pushy especially at Medina. We went to old hammemet a guy stopped us ans said he is cook at our hotel. Followed us and took us to a shop and forced to buy things. Be careful it was scary. Prices start at say 150 dinar and will drop to 20 dinar. Definitely not returning to Tunisia.

    Venus beach hammamet
    The views are fantastic. Amazing staff in the hotel so friendly and helpful. Bar staff are so polite. Whatever you need go and see them. You'll pay extra for bottles of beers for example 7 dinar for a bottle of becks.. Animation team cannot fault them. Kids loved them big shout out to shady and landon the best 2 by far 👏 my kids absolutely fel in love with them 2... Also a big shout out to Hamdi in the restaurant 🙌 he was an absolute star 🌟 my 4 year old daughter followed him everywhere and he was absolutely amazing with her.. thank you guys you made the holiday amazing. We can't wait to come back. Photographers are fantastic guys too

    Beautiful visibility throughout both dives.
    On the marina quay side, the business is small but well-run. Help is available from amiable employees with your equipment. We conducted a second, more intact wreck dive in the afternoon at a depth of around 20 meters following a very simple wreck dive in the morning with plenty of bottom time.

    Worth a visit
    It is nice to walk around the marina and we felt safe and welcome. The town is more modern than old Hammamet and probably less appealing to people interested in architecture/ history. Shopkeepers vied for your business as you expect but were respectful.

    Modern Disneyland-type experience
    Yasmin is in "New Hammamet" and is built up and full of hotels catering to the 'average tourist". I found it a bit like Disneyland. The large souk is interesting (and fake) and prices were better in the old medina in old Hammamet and also in Nabeul. The main reason to go to Yasmin aside from the modern stores, is the nearby outstanding Barberousse Beach Club restaurant.

    Loved it
    Stayed at houda yasmine. Very clean hotel and everyone was very hospitable. The animation team were fantastic and get everyone involved in activities especially Kaloutcha, a true gentleman. Ate most days at their restaurant, a large variety of world foods. Booked excursions at the hotel, went on a all round trip including Sahara desert which involved overnight stay. And booked quad bikes & camel rides there. Was absolutely amazing. Can't wait to come back to see my dear friends Kaloutcha, Karim, Pika & Slim ( the animation team).

    Recommend to stay in a hotel here, not really to visit
    Yasmine Hammamet is a area which is all based around hotels. Not much to do, but so relaxing a beautiful beach, riding camels are on offer. The marina is so beautiful during the evening/ day also so beautiful. There is areas where it’s not very clean

    Interesting group of shops
    The jasmine medina is in New Hammamet and was in walking distance of our hotel. It has a grand entrance some interesting shops and some great photo opportunities. The shop keepers and restaurant owners do try and encourage tourists into their shops but they are not aggressive ( unlike experiences I have had in Egypt and Morroco) and a firm no thanks is sufficient. There is a scam where locals pretend they work at your hotel, but we took some sports wrist bands to cover our bands and were never approached. One shop we did venture into was the Le Secret de Parfums in the medina. As the name suggests its a perfume shop selling well known brand names at a fraction of their retail price as well as some local Arabic perfumes. The lady who runs the shop was Worovo, and a more pleasant and helpful person you could not ask to find. Fluent in English, French and Arabic, she let my wife try umpteen types of perfume and when she finally decided to buy some, then allows you to choose your style of bottle. The whole experience was full of laughter and fun, and very reasonably priced. If you are in the Medina at any time at all, do pay this shop a visit.

I would urge all hotel owners to do as Le Royal and keep their beaches clean from plastics and rubbish. I understand that the sea brings in the plastics. surely all hotel owners can club together to pay people to keep the beach clean

Some men wound keep talking to me and say that they work in my hotel and that they served me food such as pizza and today is their holiday. This was so strange as I didn’t recognise any of them and I didn’t even eat pizza that day or night. I am a single parent with only my son so this was very scary and put me off Tunisia all together! The men are so reluctant in talking to me even when I have said no several times. If they feel their English is good, they try to talk to me more. The shops in the Medina have very greedy and disgusting men who pressure you to go into their shops or buy something if you even look at any of their items. Over a few days, I managed to leave to say ‘no’ and walking away also helps. Their shops have things that are not special or unique to Tunisia and are usually knockoffs and they will sell to tourists for triple the price! Avoid at all costs! Only Carthage land park itself is good but avoid the shops and practice saying ‘no’ and don’t bother making eye contact as they will try to coerce you into going into their shops and buying things. Also, the men who run the horse and carriages will always want tourists to take a ride even if you have taken a ride already. Again just say ‘no’ and ignore at all costs. Don’t feel forced into doing anything such as buying or talking to anyone you don’t want to like I was forced to. It has been a horrible experience for me and I do not wish this upon anyone else especially a female on her own or with kids. Tourists are treated like they are made of money compared to the locals or natives who visit. Just be careful when you are here.

Enfidha airport is horrible! Horrible experience at this airport this weekend flying back with 2 kids. Was flying via eastjet back to London and these people were acting as animals, totally unprofessional and unhelpful. I needed to pay for bags and they did not accept contactless payment and they did not offer any other way to pay. They are totally merciless and ruthless, even in the month of Ramadan! Totally animalistic behaviour giving Islam a bad name! Racist too I think, perhaps they acted this way because I am black! Please avoid this country and definitely avoids this airport!

If you are English do not use this hotel, absolutely horrendous time, treated like we were 2nd class citizens, hotel dirty, no hand sanitizer anywhere, dirty toilets floors always wet through. Reception and bar staff very rude. Food absolutely disgusting, all in Arabic or French, i lived off olives and omelet for 10 days. At the bar no coke 0, not fanta, no sprite, first night there they run out of wine, beach bar asked for a beer to be told no beer and we would have to pay, we asked why should be pay when we are all inclusive they replied this bar was al cart which was untrue. The cleaners left our door open 4 times, we complained to the reception staff to be told oh sorry she must have forgotten. We complained to the manager of the hotel but his English was very limited and didn't do anything to solve our issues. I am just about to complain to Love Holidays about this holiday, please please keep away. We also witnessed 2 drownings, 2 flights and a man having a heart attack, the only good thing was the weather.

We travelled here November and February both times out of season and it was fabulous, great beach, shops, coffee shops and street food. The Médina was the best with an amazing lady within who owned a mint tea shop so friends and served the most delicious mint tea - we travelled specially to have a cup of mint tea here. At this time of year it is very peaceful. Jasmin Hammamet is a very beautiful place to visit
