We stayed for a week at the Villamar, Bed and Breakfast and requested to have a room over looking the pool. We ended up with a 2 story apartment, that was superb.
It was very relaxed with a few families around the pool but perfect place to relax. The beach was a short 3-4 minute walk away where you have your own section with a small bar for food and some drinks. The main town - Hammermet - and the marina - New Hammermet were a £2.50 - 5 dinar taxi ride away.
The was en-suite and very spacious over looking the pool, with a large kitchen and lounge. The kitchen had very basic utensils, so if you were self-catering it may be a prob. But eating out is very cheap so its not a worry. Staff at the hotel were excellent, and if you tip then you will get a good service. Its not a 5-star hotel, but has the benefits of not being one with a more relaxed and personable vibe.
Hammermet is quite a small town, but there is plenty of restaurants and is more traditional, a good vibe. Hammermet Jasmine (marina/new hammermet) is a bit mroe modern, but again a lot of restaurants in the Medina.
We visited Tunis and Carthage, which are worth visiting and went to the lightshow/Tunisan history evening event which is also recommended.
All in all if you want a relaxing time then this was perfect - and very hot in August getting upto 38 but its barable, just hard to get a good tan! But would recommend to anyone and we had a very good time.
