Yasmine Hammamet is a purpose built resort town about 10 minutes by car from Hammamet. It has a lovely long promenade and clean sandy beach, a vary large marina, a medina and a wide selection of hotels, restaurants and bars.
We walked along the beach and through the town most evenings and everyone we met was friendly and welcoming and there was a lovely relaxing atmosphere around the town.
The Averroes is one of the few hotels to have direct access to the beach and it's an easy 20 minutes stroll along the sea front to the marina. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The animation team was excellent and really worked hard throughout the day and late into the evenings. Activities included aqua aerobics, boules, volleyball, water polo and archery. There was also entertainment in the evenings.
The food was excellent in quality and variety. Most lunchtimes we ate at the small cafe bar where there was a grill every day including fish, chicken and burgers. Breakfast and evening meals were in the large buffet restaurant and every day there were cooks preparing fresh food. There was also a wide selection of salads and fresh fruits.
Our room was very clean, well-lit and spacious with a large balcony. The room appeared to have been recently decorated. The bathroom was large and clean.
Our only complaint was the organisation of the sun beds and towels. The problem with the sun beds was that there were at least 3 different standards of sun lounger and 2 very different standards of mattress. The best quality beds and mattresses were always fully taken before 7.30 am. It was annoying to see some of the beds reserved but not used for the entire day with people being absent all day and then appearing late in the afternoon to collect their towels and return to their rooms without using the beds at all! The hotel should really try to stop this type of behaviour. We were surprised to be asked for a deposit of 20 Dinars (about £8) for each towel. They would not accept Pounds or Euros so we had to change money into local currency to get the tokens for the towels. At the end of the holiday you hand back the tokens and they return your deposit but you then have to queue at the airport to change your money back into Pounds. It all adds unnecessary hassle and it would be much simpler to simply hand out the tokens upon check-in and only make a charge if you fail to hand them back at the end.
Overall though, this is an excellent hotel in a lovely location and we would definitely consider returning.
