Situated in beautiful gardens and right on the beach, with a lovely pool, this is a perfect relaxation holiday!
Bungalows scattered around large gardens, stayed full board and the food is excellent, evening entertainment is limited but would be ideal for families. The hotel is being renovated from Nov 2007 - 2009 after which time my partner and I will definately be going back.

We stayed at this hotel from March 30-April 1, 2007, and just loved it! Very calm and relaxed, we had a large room with a seating area and a balcony with a view of the ocean. As it was off season, things were quite quiet, which we enjoyed. Nice low rise buildings, beautiful gardens, nice pool area - perhaps a bit tatty around the edges, but in my opinion that just added to the charm! I highly recommend!

My mother and I visited this hotel in the last week of March 2007. The rooms are sprawled out and surrounded by beautiful gardens that seem to be very well maintained. As the rooms were so spaced out, the only time you could see the large number of guests staying there, was at dinner! Although the location of the hotel is a bit far out, suited to those looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday, it is easy and cheap to get a taxi to Hammamet town centre, Hammamet Yasmine or even Nabeul.

As it was still a bit chilly, we did not swim in the pool or sea but both areas were clean and looked after. There are no lifeguards but this is made clear and guests are asked to keep an eye on their children especially in these areas. The security is good at this hotel. I went for a quick walk alone to the beach one afternoon and on the way back, I noticed a guard following (at a distance).

The majority of the guests seemed to be there for to golf or play tennis. There weren't many families with children, which is probably a good thing as I don't think there are many things to keep them entertained on site. The evening entertainment was varied and low key (no discos etc) but there are bars nearby if you want more activity.

The staff are great. Very friendly, chatty and willing to help. Breakfast and dinner were good, with a selection of cold & hot foods. I enjoy trying different foods and was never disappointed. If you go on an excursion which leaves early in the morning, it is still possible to get some breakfast, which is not always the case! A couple of the waiters even made us pack some oranges from the dining room for our trip away hehe!
We had a small problem with ants in our room, which was quickly sorted out after a quick phonecall to reception.

We took the train to visit Sousse and were advised to go from Bir Bouregba station instead of Hammamet, as this is on the mainline. The journey took 1 hour and is well worth the trip. Make sure you check the departure times as these can be spaced out.
Taxis in Hammamet are easier than in Sousse/Port el Kantaoui as they all use their meters (which apparently are checked reguarly by the police).

One note of caution - if you don't like being hassled in markets (souks) then it's better to shop in fixed price stores which can be found at the hotels (larger the hotel, larger the shop) and dotted around the towns. My mother really enjoyed the Friday market in Nabeul and said that there was far less hassle from the shopkeepers.

All in all, a good week away at a nice, comfortable hotel!

My wife and I have just returned from a week long short break to the Sheraton Hotel in Hammamet. We booked the holiday some months ago and I did not give it a thought that we would be there during Ramadan.

Let me deal with a couple of comments about the Hotel. It is situated like a lot of the Hotels on the coast right on the beach and the rooms are in little low level buildings set in fabulous mature gardens. The rooms are a little tired! Do not expect modern fixtures and fittings however what is there work perfectly well. The quality of the floor and wall tiles must have been fantastic when they were first fitted. While not dirty at all I just got the impression they really needed a serious abrasive scrubbing and subsequent polishing however that’s just the Do it yourselfer in me!

The swimming pool is clean and well maintained despite the fall of olives from the tress that surround it I did not see one in it at any time.

Public areas are again dated, however everywhere is very clean and well maintained. The staff we encountered were very friendly and welcoming. Samir is an older man (looks retired police or army) who hands out Towels and sun lounger mattresses on the beach. He is a lovely man who was seen to “box the ears” of a young beach seller who tried on the “I don’t have any change” routine when selling doughnuts. Also be warned the fruit sellers on the beach do charge much more that you can buy in the local shops. It is delicious though.

Breakfast is a huge buffet. Very small no smoking area though. Living in Scotland, where a public smoking ban has been in force since March, I have forgotten what it is like to have people smoking around me. As an ex smoker I was really put off by everyone smoking all around me at Breakfast. (That is my rant over).

Tourism to Tunisia is really suffering. I understand that a lot of people are reluctant to venture into a Muslim country. Let me assure readers the Tunisians are a very tolerant people, welcoming to strangers. Brush up on your school French and go visit.

In summary a very good, clean and friendly hotel, not luxury probably 3 star but well worth a visit. Guests mainly from Germany (a little sun lounger bagging!) Italy (best designer wear), Holland (that couple did not realise I could understand them!!) a large French contingent who are so lucky that they can communicate so easily with the locals who learn French from age 8, and very few from the UK.

Arranged a quick "Get away in September, 2005" We stayed at the Sheraton. We flew British airways from London Gatwick and arrived in Tunis at around 12.30 midday. Once we cleared arrivals, we were met by our travel rep, who escorted us to our transfer coach... This was not a coach, it was a top of the range 4x4. "Pritty impressive" We travelled through Tunis during mid day rush hour in about 39c, (Thank God for Air conditioning) arriving at the Sheraton around 2.45pm.

First impression was not that great, there was a noted smell of damp, the reception area is just a desk, and the offered fruit cocktail drink was served in a dirty glass.

The rooms were nice, clean, but needed a lick or paint. we had a ground flood room with a lovely patio. It rain one evening very heavy which resulted in the bathroom room being flooded with water from the bath and toilet. We were moved very quickly, two hotel staff came and packed all of suit cases and then un-packed for us in our new room.

The pool area was very quite, again, pool needed to be cleaned out, the pool bar was never opened and most of the tiles around the pool were craked.

Food in the evening was nothing special, breakfast to die for. they made freash dougnuts and the coffee was great.

Overall the best part of the hotel is the location. In a quite location directly in the beach, the beach is one of the nicest I have been to, the sand rivels the indian ocean, having said that, walking around the hotel grounds is also really pritty, very green ans very well looked after.

Would I go back? No, I did have high expeactions of this hotel, I would not rate it a 4 start more like a 2. However, if this was 20 years ago I would say it would have been a 5 start
This hotel really needs a bit more TLC it has great potenial but be warned, most things are now a bit tatty

I did have a nice holiday, the staff were friendly, drinks and food was cheap enough

We arrived late at night and were put in a very small, shabby room with a dirty towel in the closet, a shower curtain with mold, and stained carpeting. I would have been able to let all that go, if it had not been for the giant cockroach that crawled across the bed. We did complain and we were put in a much nicer room with an ocean view we were not charged for. However, we had sugar ants in this room the whole time and not able to leave any food out. On a positive note, the gardens were beautiful and the beach fabulous. Most of the staff there were very friendly. Although, there was one man, who we thought was on staff, who hung around the hotel lobby and gift shop trying to talk people into a "free tour" around Hammamet for the new guests that happens only once a week. Needless to say, when we didn't go the first time he approached us, there conveniently was another tour the next day for hotel guests who missed out. My husband and I were duped by this and wound up in a basement of some store being aggressively pressured to by a carpet. I would NOT give this hotel a 4 star rating. It needs some serious work and they need to get rid of the guy in the lobby. In addition, a couple of parts of the hotel that were advertised were either not open or working. The pool-bar (where you can swim up and get a drink) was not open, nor was the grill at the main bar. This hotel has the potential to be really nice, but falls short.

I stayed at the Sheraton between 31st May-7th June. It was the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in. The service is exceptionally high, the food is absolutely amazing.
When me and my partner first saw our room we were overwhelmed! The room was huge, with a king size bed and we had room service every day.
The beach is beautiful and you could not ask for a better location. One tip though: Do not make any phone calls from your hotel room because it was SO expensive. Just outside the entrance to The Sheraton is a communications centre where there have pay phones, I would strongly advise you to go there instead.
'The London Pub' is right next to the entrance of the hotel, for exceptional hospitality I would recommend you to go there!! The owner is lovely and very friendly.
Me and my boyfriend are 21 and enjoyed the fact that the hotel is in a fairly quiet area, yet 5 minutes to a few English pubs and good nightlife (if you want it).
I would not advise anyone to go to the Hammamet Medina, it is full of children trying to get money off you, and they can be quite rude. The only reason we went into te Medina is because it is one of the few places you can buy alcohol. The Sheraton has customers that go there year after year, and once you have visited the amazing hotel you will know why.
