Although not a 5* hotel, definitely a 5* experience! A really great holiday.

The food choice and quality was excellent. The staff were really friendly and worked very hard. Thanks to Mohammed and Arbi who were very charming.

The bars were excellent and we were never waiting long for a drink. A special thanks to Riadh who was really fun and attentive.

The entertainment was brilliant, with so much to do at any time. The animation team worked really hard to make sure that everyone enjoyed their holiday. Not only that, the variety was extensive and there was something for everyone. The team were fun and genuinely caring and really made the holiday. Thanks to Hamza the happiest man in the world, Abdoul, Mimo & Moiez (aka Jedward) DJ Sam & Intissar.

When compared to other package all inclusive holidays, it is not the most luxurious experience from an aesthetics point of view, but from a fun and entertaining point of view it ticks all the boxes. All in all it was a fantastic trip, we felt safe and happy at all times and we would definitely consider coming back. Thanks a lot everyone!!!!! :)

yet another lovely holiday , the Averroes was always a nice hotel with lovely helpful staff but it was a bit dated and had a few minor problems but well done to the new manager he has put everything perfect and is always about the hotel talking to guest which we thought was lovely and his staff would do every thing they could to ensure you have a great holiday , The entertainment is far better than ever and thank you for so much fun and thank you walid for the lovely banannas which you had deliverd to our room these are all little things that make a lovely holiday , The food was alawys lovely and plenty to choose from everyday , this hotel deserves a 5 star but if it was we may not be able to afford to come back again ,

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.

First time in Tunisia and it was excellent. Firstly, we arranged the holiday through Thomas Cook and missed our flight out. Thomas Cook very quickly arranged for us to travel on another flight, the same day, and we made it to the resort just 14 hours later than we ought to have. They were excellent.

The hotel was lovely - very spacious and airy and has a lovely location on the beach. Probably the best located hotel in Yasmine. The food was very nice - it got a little samey but there was always a chicken and beef dish, pasta, potatoes and pizza and lots of salad. The drinks portions are a little on the small side unless you ask for a bottle of wine and definitely watered down.

The best advice I can give is to tip tip tip! It will improve your holiday ten fold; the staff will really take care of you.

Brilliant relaxing holiday and very very good value money.

This is a lovely hotel with great bar, restaurant and animation staff. Lady on reception and the ladies in the spa lets the team down really not very welcoming and when departing the spa ladies demand you shampoo etc... from you, which was quite intimidating. Food was great plenty of choice, the animation team let you know what's on and to do and leave you to make your mind up as to whether you want to take part or not, the night entertainment was a lot better than i expected very entertaining, drink were good (wasn't a fan of the white wine) but apart from that everything else taste fine. We went for a walk out and it was nice for something to do but nothing special. We went on the Pirate ship trip which wasn't great they tell you that all soft drinks are free with a buffet of food and that is not the case you have one plastic cup of coke with the food and the only thing that is free is the water, food consisted of dried bread a piece of meat (not sure what it was maybe pork?) and a piece of fish, this wasn't the end of the world for us because we were all inclusive and as soon as we got back to the hotel we ate again, you don't see any dolphins as promised and are made to tip at the end of the trip, its just a bit of a con really. Pool and beach are both amazing lovely and clean, and we didn't get mithered at all on the beach. Unfortunately we had a bag of gifts and cigarettes stolen from are room they were kept in a drawn and when we came to pack they were gone, again the lady on reception couldn't of really cared less and said the cleaners has not found anything, I'm not even a 100% that she had even check with the cleaners??? I will email Thomas cook to let them know but not sure if i will be compensated for the loss . Overall it was lovely weeks holiday with great food and met some lovely people. But won't be retuning due to the stolen bag and the unhelpful receptionist. (and would recommend not to waste your money and a morning on the pirate ship)

We'd never been to Tunisia before, though would definitely go again (to the same resort) after this holiday! :) It was all you could want from a Sunny holiday. Weather was consistently perfect at about 32-35 degrees. Site very clean all around.

The food was great with lots of variety to cater for all, from Swordfish to pizza, watermelon to delicious freshly made doughnuts for breakfast! In the afternoon there's a great restaurant to where a friendly cook served crepes etc...

Very clean beach and lots of activities should you wish. The room was a perfect size, and we were lucky to get sea/ pool view. Worth taking mosiquito spray just in case as there were a couple of people around the pool with some bites!

Drinks package under all-inclusive was brilliant and saves you a fortune, decent drinks and the swim up pool bar is perfect to cool you down from the sun. Our waiter in the back garden was fantastic and good fun. The only thing we paid out for was Shisha (from the friendly Shisha man) and games of poole.

Finally, the animation team were brilliant! They were great fun and all took their time to get to know you, Even if you don't want to get involved in the day time activities, there's no pressure. Special mention to Mimo, Kader and the guy leading the volleyball/ football (and all the team who made the holiday). There's even a very catchy 10am dance!

Perfect for couples (straight or same sex), friends and families. Lovely big pool and we went term time so not many children. We also met some really nice people there.

When we got on the coach at the end of the holiday we met some people we met at the airport on the way out there. We definitely felt we booked the best hotel on the strip and would happily go again soon!

Thanks for making it a great hol! I literally could not fault it, great value for money and very helpful and friendly staff throughout.
