Hotel was def one of the best ones in the area, but as stated by others location is pretty awful. On very noisy dirty main road. First room we were given was above restaurant kitchen, next to a road which sounded like a noisy motorway. Asked to be moved, and as hotel was nowhere near full they did give us another room, better, but our balcony was on main walkway thru hotel!. So everyone walking past was almost in with us. Pool great, beach was kept clean. Taxis into town interesting, we always seemed to be picking up extra passengers on way there & back. Hammamet seemed like a place that was waiting to happen, or had been and gone!. We had a laugh. Food was good. If you going to Hammamet go to this hotel as the best in town.

Room Tip: Rooms in centre of comples in gardens or near beach much the best location

First thing - remember you're in North Africa and not Bournemouth. The hotel is located just off the main road into Hammamet - the road is busy, full of rubbish and smelly. Traffic is heavy and chaotic, the pavements are full of cars making safe walking impossible and the shops and cafes are scrappy and not particularly friendly, attractive, cheap or worth visiting. Walk through the gated front of the hotel and this is soon forgotten. However, if you fancy a walk outside the hotel, there is no where to go.

The hotel is quiet and tranquil. The architecture is typical Tunisian - white render, arches and lots of space given over to garden with lovely African flowers. We were given a 3 bed room and a 2 bed room which, despite requesting otherwise, were at opposite sides of the complex. The three bed room was really spacious with a TV, mini bar and patio. The two bedroom property was similarly nicely kitted out but, subjectively, significantly less 'five star' than the three bed.

The beach was a thing of beauty; clean sand, clear blue water and reserved for the guests of the hotel. It was busy at times but we always managed to find a spot. The hotel has three pools, one indoor. The infinity pool is really quite small and busy but the indoor pool and the other outdoor pool were decent enough and generally empty.

The food was hit and miss but there were some genuine hits. Having tried all of the staple Tunisian dishes, I could only conclude that there wasn't much to Tunisian cuisine, which probably didn't help matters.

So far this review describes a tranquil paradise with some ok food. So, here are the flaws. None are showstoppers but please read on and make your own mind up.

1. There's nowhere to go on foot outside the complex.
2. There was no hotel shop so no where to get drinks, snacks, newspapers et al.
3. There were no free drinks with dinner. If you wanted water, you paid (about £1.50 a bottle).
4. There was no games room, table tennis, tennis, badminton, boules or similar. So beyond swimming and eating, there wasn't much to do.
5. There was a grand piano in reception and everytime someone (good or bad) played it they were told to get off it.
6. There were numerous wealthy Tunisian day visitors (Butlins style!) who, at times, seemed to take priority over the resident campers. The day visitors were let in regardless of whether there was any space for them on the beach, in the beach side restaurant or by the infinity pool. As an example, the day we left there was a beach party (sponsored by Porsche) aimed squarely at the Tunisian non-residents which meant the the restuarant closed early for the hapless residents.

Hotel Sindbad 5* is one of a few true five star hotels in Hammamet. Constructed under moderate influence of national architecture this is a really quite place with the very polite and friendly staff. I believe the infinity pool and lounge zone are the main advantages of this hotel. Wonderful beach with clean sand undoubtedly can be compared with beaches in Dominican Republic, Maldives and Mexico. The food is perfect. Also, one of the advantages of this hotel is the total absence of noisy tourists from Russia.

I loved this hotel and stayed here with my young family. It has a real cosmopolitan vibe about it, the food at Les Villiers is really good for lunch and breaks up the monotony of half board buffet.

There are not many English staying here which is a blessing and makes a really chilled out break. The hotel is great to 'kick back' and relax and the sea is crystal clear and beach extremely clean.

Where the Sindbad needs to improve and become true 5* is to change the lumpy pillows, provide bigger beach towels and provide more sunbeds round the pool areas.

In all, we have had a very pleasant and relaxing stay at the Sindbad, they accommodated my request for an interconnecting room and therefore we had a huge room with our 2 children.

Room Tip: We stayed in rooms 184 and 185 which interconnected and were super quiet.

I spent a weekend here with my family. The staff was really very friendly, the hotel is nice and human-sized, the room is spacious and clean, the bed is large, the beach is not bad even if umbrellas are too close to each other for my taste. The terrace of the room was not usable because there were eucalyptus leaves and seeds. The pool area overlooking the beach is not as nice and too small. What I really did not like was the food, which I found poor for a 4 star hotel. I would also not recommended the hotel for families with children.
