We were hesitant to go back to Tunisia with our past experience however decided to try a different area and I'm pleased we did!
The holiday came at a great price so we weren't expecting the ritz but the initial impression was good. It seems to be a running theme that your room isn't ready but we think this must be because check out isn't while 12 and flights are often coming in earlier than this so it doesn't quite marry....
We got to our room which wasn't great but we don't spend much time in the room so weren't over bothered but the next day when we realised that the balcony doors had no locking mechanism and just stuck shut I went straight to reception! They were very courteous and without hesitation gave us another room which was nicer and with a better view.
The things that stood out for us was the staff at the hotel, they were mostly efficient and welcoming. They remembered drinks orders and although I do feel the need to tip good service I didn't feel I had to. The restaurant staff were also great and we were even shown how a pumpkin was carved decoratively when we stood admiring it! We enjoyed the food but we eat anything and are quite creative. I only struggled once in 15 days. We did decide with other couples we'd met to eat at the steakhouse in Yasmine but I'd have rather stayed in the hotel!
Yasmine hammamet wasn't great itself, although its ok! Just be prepared for hassle from everyone!!!! We really enjoyed the Friday market at nabaul as this gives a taste of real Tunisia.....
We really enjoyed our stay and for what we paid for it I think we got a great bargain!we would go back if we just wanted a sunbed holiday... I'm sure it would be livelier in the summer
