Very good standard of hotel. Infinity pool. Beautiful furnishings. Within 20 minute walk of old Hammamet with its classic medina either along the beach or busy main road. Our group was somewhat large so we had a dining room to ourselves and a fixed menu for the two nights we were there. We would have preferred the buffet and its associated range of choices. Buffet style breakfast, freshly made crepes, omelettes and fried eggs, variety of fillings available. Very comfortable rooms, good beach and poolside service reasonably priced. Modern Hammamet is not too far away (try the tourist town) but is very much commercialised, modern and lacks the character of the old town.Staff very friendly and attentive. Beautiful, well maintained gardens and large aviary. In a great spot for peace and quiet.

We stayed the last 2 nights of a cultural tour at the Sindbad. It provided relaxation, and respite in a beautiful and tranquil environment. Our room was lovely, large and very clean, with a bath and walk-in shower, and a secluded terrace.
The grounds of the hotel were just lovely, the staff were friendly and professional and the whole operation seemed to run most smoothly: testament to a good manager.
The food was good and plentiful, and I liked the f at that drinks prices, while 'hotel rates' we're not ridiculous, and that mini bar, room service and bar prices were one and the same.
The walk along the beach to Hammamet itself was a joy: the hotel's beach was lovely, and at the beginning of October, not too crowded.
We had heard of hawkers and hassles on the public beach, but we encountered no one, except friendly fishermen.
This was a great stay in which to end the holiday.

My wife and I have just returned from our sixth visit to the Sinbad. I cannot speak too highly of this hotel which has many attractive features with excellent facilities as shown on the hotel website. All the staff speak English (which is important if you are worried about speaking the language) and they are very friendly and efficient. The three outstanding features are the food and service in the main restaurant, the spacious bedrooms and the restaurant which overlooks the beach. I find it a great advantage to be able to move straight from the beach into a restaurant, at any time of the day, and have just a drink, a snack or a full meal with excellent service

Firstly for those wanting a 5 star hotel then they would surely expect to be paying 5 star prices rather than package holiday prices!!! We found this a friendly and well established hotel set amid beautifully maintained gardens with an immaculate private beach. Our room turned out to be a suite with a huge bedroom, separate living room, dressing area, bathroom and separate shower plus a balcony. We even had 2 TV's although only the BBC world service to watch if we had the time. The waiters, chambermaids and beach staff were very good but the reception staff seemed generally bored which is not the ideal first impression. On the whole the food was excellent and plentiful with a mainly buffet style and barbecue as well. We were there for 2 weeks and never had to have the same main meal twice. Although the hotel was large it never felt crowded as the hotel is only 2 storeys and is spread out amongst the grounds giving plenty of peace and privacy. The hotel is very well regarded by the Tunisians with obviously very wealthy locals staying at the weekends but this just added to the atmosphere. In order to secure the best sun loungers at the front of the beach it is worth doing the German trick of reserving a space with your towels before breakfast although it does feel very un-British! Tunisia is a scruffy place and once outside the front gate it seems a bit bleak but persevere and try some of the little local shops where there are plenty of bargains and the drinks are much cheaper than the hotel. You can take a 20 minute walk along the beach to the Fort in the old town and explore the Medina. Jasmine Hammamet in the opposite direction is worth avoiding unless you want the typical Irish bars and tacky shops although the Marina was quite nice. We also did an overnight trip to the Sahara with dinner and entertainment in a traditional tent and which also included a train ride into the Atlas Mountains. A lot of travelling but worthwhile.......

Just back from one of the most relaxing weeks holiday in a long time. Very friendly welcome from the front desk on our arrival and then a cool welcome drink. Arrived at 10am and was given a room straight away. Wow what a room....really large, massive bathroom with separate shower and toilet..lovely terrace outside and then it was off to the beach. A quick dip in the infinity pool and on to the Beach Bar for lunch. All the staff were brilliant all week and a special mention to Ahmed in the Beach Bar who had put up with a few customers who thought they were dining at Gordon Ramsays and not a bar/restaurant on a beach. we went half board one night was Al Carte next night buffet. There was so much choice at both breakfast and dinner. One night we dined in the Thai restaurant and that too was very good. The only down side was the flies.....every where constantly - but this is a trait for Tunisia the hotel could invest in some sort of zappers on the walls to kill them off, but fair to say there was nothing in the bedrooms. People must bear in mind that you are visiting a two tier economy they even have money or they don't. The ones that do like to flash the cash and do so at this hotel. we think this reflects how good this hotel really is....dont listen to the doubters on Tripadvisor go and see for yourself you will not be disappointed

Room Tip: Just ask if your not happy
