Reviewed July 5, 2011

This was our fourth visit to the Sindbad and over the years it has consistently improved. It has been extensivly renovated and this is now complete with tastefully decorated and appointed rooms and a good standard of public facilities and restaurants. We always take the half board option and the we considered that the standard of the food had improved this year with a wide choice. We also dined in the Chiraz restaurant one evening and the meal was excellent and reasonably priced. The beach is brilliant with soft sand and safe bathing in the gently shelving bay while the hotels baech staff and security work well to ensure that you are not disturbed. We walked into Hammamet one evening and found that we were not harassed by local traders at all unlike other years. The hotel will also provide transport from and to the airport again at reasonable rates. Our visit was at the end of June and we saw no sign of trouble at all in the country and I would suggest that anybody being put off by Januarys uprising not to worry.

We went as three couples on a golfing package, and stayed at the Sindbad bed and breakfast. The hotel was first class - breakfast excellent - we tried one of the pension meals and it was OK. But the Thai restaurant was good and the a la carte restaurant very good. The hotel is very well situated with a good lay-out of low rise blocks in the Arabic/Spanish style. We ventured out for evening meals in Hammamet and that was fine - best was the Barbe Rousse in the Kasbah at the Medina. The golf was great - sadly for Tunisia the courses were virtually deserted, that meant very enjoyable golf for us on top notch courses (Le Foret, Les Oliviers, the Yasmin)

Nice hotel with friendly staff, I may consider going there again. However i felt slightly disappointed when arriving in the hotel since it didnt look as good as it did in the photos. The pool and bar area were nicely decorated and seemed five star but other areas such as the restaurants, reception and beach area need updating. The beach area was a bit tatty and the matresses and towels were old. Food generally nice but probably not five star. Since i had paid around 300 pounds i expected a bit more. Some of the rooms were rather small. The hotel did have its own character and some nice garden areas, the spa is definitely worth a visit since the treatments were excellent and good value.

Room Tip: ask to view available rooms -they differ in size

The Sinbad is a very nice, well run hotel with an excellent staff to match. The rooms are in small links scattered through lovely gardens connected by paths which also lead to the beach which has good quality sand, a good view of the bay, excellent sun canopies, sunbeds, cushions and beach towels brought to you by excellent staff. We were half board and the food was plentiful and of good quality. The lunchtime snacks are inclined to be expensive but you can catch a taxi into Hammamet and back for a very good lunch at a restaurant with beer and wine for a fraction of the cost at the hotel. Our favourite was a little garden restaurant on a corner diagonally opposite the tourist information office about 150 metres north of the medina.

Beware if you pay extra for a room with a sea view. Ours certainly had a sea view but only when you were standing, if you sat on the balcony to enjoy your morning tea or predinner drink you will be faced with a 4'6'' blank wall! (Room 207)

Room Tip: Difficult to tell due to the maze like layout.

Hotel being renovated and painted at time of visit with plenty of work left to complete. We were given a ground floor room which have minimal outside balcony space and also allows access to anyone walking around the hotel. So much that we had 2 pairs of training shoes and a camera taken whilst we were inside the room with the door open. dont leave your belongings out!! The hotel is nice but the town and the area surrounding is very run down with local youths hanging around the beach who are intimidating especially if you are female and walking/running on the beach alone. Could of been so much better but not all hotels fault!
Hotel very quiet with the average age around 60 years,nothing for kids to do in the hotel.

Room Tip: ask for room with sea view

Just had a week's golf at Citrus and Yasmine whilst staying at the Sinbad. We had a great time but there were hardly any other guests there. There were 12 of us; the average daily occupancy seemed to be around 40 people.The golf courses were empty. The transfers were brilliant - never waited a second.
So, lots of staff just dying to do stuff for you. We ate in the hotel restaurant which was good. Buffets some nights a la carte the others. I am a vegetarian; plenty of choice.
We used the Pub 19 which was fine and almost exclusively our own. Mohammed kept us topped up.
The Spa was great- Dousah does a great job.
We met Mobruk referrred to in earlier Reviews--we gave him a copy of his Review and his face was a picture.
Kaiyati managed to get the management to let us keep our rooms as we had a late flight - we therefore lunched at the hotel's restaurant on the beach which was fine with lots of Tunisian family groups.
The rooms were big and everything worked- the wifi signal is weak in the room - there are 2 pc's in reception which work fine - free, but they request you restrict to 15 minutes.
So please give this Hotel a go.
Yes they have had a rebellion
Yes there is a civil war going on in a neighbouring country.
Hammamet is however safe and i know you will get a warm welcome at the Sinbad

Room Tip: It's easy to get lost!!

December was a bad choice as it was colder than usual. Our room in a shady part of the grounds was denied sight of the sea by the trees. On half-board basis, buffet dinners were available three nights each week. As the a la carte meals on the other nights were in the nature of a lottery, the former was our preferred choice.

All drinks were too pricey - even the local beer was five times the shop price. Of course guests were not allowed to bring in drinks - not even water! Post dinner entertainment on most nights was an electronic keyboard accompanying a middle-aged Tunisian male singer. On one night each week the mandatory belly dancer displayed her 'talents' to the accompaniment of the same two-piece combo.

In the town centre, about a kilometre away, are inexpensive and hygienic Therapeutic Clinics and restaurants. We patronised these establishments in preference to the hotel's facilities.

Christmas and New Year's dinners were compulsory and attracted a premium of £25 per person.The seating arrangement was decided by 'Management' and all tables in close proximity to the band and dancefloor (cabaret), were reserved for 'locals' , none of whom had the good grace to be punctual. Some parties came in up to two hours late which had implications for all the hotel guests, as the planned waiter service was disrupted. Our table was denied a dessert - but the drink and dance made up for it!!!

Supposedly a five-star hotel, evidently standards have fallen since qualifying!

Room Tip: Less than a mile to the town centre, have your me
