We stumbled upon this hotel as we walked on the beach from the Medina. As we had rented a house, we were looking for a nice, safe hotel where we could use the facilities - such as a pool - for our son. The beach is extremely safe with security there to protect. The hotel staff was incredibly nice and we were able to use the facilities. Wifi was available on the beach at the water's edge! They brought lunch directly to your beach chairs. Although, we didn't stay in the hotel rooms this time, with the staff service, beauty, and secure location, I will be booking this hotel for our next stay!

We stayed for one week half board at this hotel. The public areas are really nice but I was disappointed with the room. Although it was spacious and clean we were not enthralled with the number of cockroaches that were also in residence. To be fair the receptionist did deal with this promptly and we didn't have any more creepy crawlies afterwards but I found it very hard to relax after this. The food was nice with many choices available. The majority of staff were nice particularly in the Djinn bar but as usual there were some that let the rest down especially at the Infinity Pool Bar where they could be a lot friendlier. The beach was lovely and the 20 minute walk to the town was very pleasant. All in all it was a good base to explore Tunisia but could have been a lot better.

Two nights here in May were wonderful. Excellent rooms, service,reception and food for a nation that uses local products....don't expect smoked salmon. It is a labyrinth and the grounds an arboretum. Very few sea views from bedrooms.....if you need that, but most rooms seem to have an interesting outlooking area of some kind. Lovely pools and 'professional' sunbathing area on fabulous beach....ie a bit cramped if you require attention of beach facilities. Plenty of space if you don't need drinks etc. Lovely walks along beach.

Room Tip: Ask to be near reception area if you have walking difficulties.

Just had a five night stay here and had an enjoyable stay. Nice food, nice staff and nice room. But nice is as far as it goes. Can't understand why it has been rated as a 5* hotel. The lobby, the rooms and the indoor and outdoor pool areas are in need of an update. The longer you're there for the more you start to notice how run down the hotel really is. The restaurants on the beach serve good quality, value for money food and it's great that they serve lunch to your sunbed. I think the saying "you get what you pay for" is what you get with the Sindbad.

Best place to stay in Hammamet. Well-designed to avoid the impression of mass tourism. Lovely gardens with individual paths leading to many rooms, nearly all at ground floor level. All rooms have an outside seating area. Very nice stretch of beach in front of hotel. Attractive and spacious bedrooms, well appointed and of finished, something you can't often find in Tunisia. Lots of places to relax inside the hotel and around the swimming pools,which makes this a hotel difficult to leave. Superb spa. The food is very good: excellent buffet breakfast offering plenty of choice. The a la carte restaurant which offers international food and Tunisian options is first rate. People come down from Tunis to sample their fresh fish dishes. The décor, service and quality of food in this restaurant are excellent. General manager is alert to guests' suggestions (and those of hoteliers from France and Germany) which helps ensure quality constantly improves. He claims, there are many repeat clients. Best of all is the value for money. Compared with other 5* Tunisian hotels this beats them hands down.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel as part of a guided tour of Tunisia and I found it excellent. The rooms were very clean and luxurious, the layout of the hotel with the rooms within beautiful gardens was very attractive and the hotel itself was just perfect for a relaxing break. It was wonderful to have such an attractive beach so close to the hotel, with facilities and people on hand to assist with towels, beach chairs etc, but never obtrusive. Wonderful pool areas to relax in, and also a brilliant spa with many varied treatments provided very professionally and with great expertise. Also, excellent food in the many different restaurants, whether it be buffet style or waiter service. I have stayed in some beautiful hotels in many different parts of the world, but this hotel is amongst the best and I couldn't recommend it more highly!

Not a pure 5* by European standards, but comfortable enough, clean enough, with a great wifi connection in the room, its private beach and a great pool club. Great choice in terms of price/quality. Beware of people in the beach trying to rip you off with fake/misleading trips.
