The hotel was quite grand in the foyer areas and the bar area and outside seating is lovely. The rooms are exactly as shown in the brochure; clean, comfy beds and fresh sheets every day; clean and adequate bathroom with a powerful shower and separate loo.The maid visits every day and changes towels and bedding and gives the room a good tidy up. The balconies are very spacious and contain table, 2 chairs, towel rails and nice lighting. Breakfast is good (try the omelets or crepes), with endless (decent) coffee/tea; croissant, fresh bread, butter and jams and cereals/milk and a gorgeous outside dining area.
OK; there are some not so good points; Some staff are simply grumpy (it was Ramandan and 36 degrees so I'm sure they were not in the mood to serve food and drinks) however the lovely ones could not be more delightful; special thanks to Adel the pool guy and Ahfed the beach waiter who made our holiday really comfortable and gave great service, nothing was too much trouble. We had an outside pool view room which was lovely until the nighttime entertainment began from 9-pm11pm - it was Euro-Techno pop for 2 hours - horrendous! On one evening we had 3 belly dancers arrive so that made a nice change, with traditional music.
Dinner; I'm quite a fussy eater so I struggled to find anything to my taste apart from soups, frites and deserts. Main courses are a bit canteen style.
There is very little to do beyond the resort: The Medina is rubbish and very hassel-y with pretty much a lot of (very cheap) tat for sale. Although it's only 2 Dinar in a cab (80p) so try it out for yourselves. The Marina had some great looking bars and restaurants but sadly they were mostly closed as peak season doesn't start until end of July.
The brilliant points: The beach is paradise-like; white sands swept each morning, free sunloungers and towels. Waiter service for lunches/snacks, wines and beers; just amazing, hot, shady when required, beautiful warm blue sea. Incredible. A great place to unwind. Water sports are available (haggle for a good price!), parascending, dough-nutting; jet-skiing, fabulous!
Two outdoor pools; one quiet one for total peace, and a large lively one and there's a poolside restaurant but we preferred to have lunch at the beach restaurant where a really good steak costs around £10 per person and it is delicious with a beautiful view of the ocean. The Carbonara was pretty good too. Cheap beers (£1.60 for Becks/Celtia, the local beer).
Really; a great place if you love sun, sea and sand, and a pretty fabulous hotel.
PS: We flew on the Thomson Dreamliner 787 - that was an amazing experience in itself! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Avoid the outdoor pool view if you like peace and quiet! The grounds are beautiful to look at anyway.

I enjoyed my stay here, wasn't quite 5 star but you get what you pay for and it seems the nicest in the area. Very clean and the staff are helpful, however they wouldn't let us bring any of our own water or snacks inside which was ridiculous.

Unfortunately the area outside the hotel is quite drab, and you get a lot of hassle on the streets/beach. Streets are in a poor state with many lamp posts missing, and much litter on the beach if you leave the hotels private area.

Me and my boyfriend came here this june for 10 nights. We dont expect alot but we found ourselves easily dissapointed, although we had a lovely holiday. One thing I would like to mention is that u can not take any food or drink into this hotel. Not even water!! We only found this out once we had bought alot of water.. Which I felt was very needed for things from brushing you teeth to keeping dehydrated.
Reception staff have poor manners and we very much found that French speaking people got much better service, welcome and everything overall. They definatly didnt have 5* manners.
The rooms are dated but traditional and spacious. Maids were fine and very sweet at times. Lighting in the hotel is very poor. Pool guy and some buffet waiters are friendly, tipa definatly help.
The indoor thalosso pool that everyone says is amazing yet fail to mention its 30dinars per person for half an hour. We done this and although lovely I thought it was abit pricey for what it actually is.
The yasmine hammamet area is lovely but like a ghost town. I advise.anyone who wants relaxation but also enough todo should go closer to the medina. Although you will get alot of hassle, youll be surprised with the tacticas they use. The meals are lovely in the buffet but the breakfast is repetative and not great. The pool bar, and a la carte are both really nice not too pricey and you get good service overall. You can have a really nice time here but I think staff need to learn some manners and alot of improvements need to be made. There are 2 pools, a childs pool and the thalosso pool so make sure you check them All out. There is a shisha cafe that is great and chilled the man who works in there is very nice and friendly.
If you want hotel entertainment you wont get much here. There was very little for guests so be prepared to occupy yourself. Book some excursiona the zulu zoo trip and meal is great.

It was our first holiday and this is my first ever review. I hate writing reviews but the fantastic experience we had in Alhambra Thalasso, I think it will be unfair not to write one. Hotel is very nice and clean. Room(3035) was spacious with nice and clean bathroom, balcony with view of pool and the sea, which I loved seeing every morning Friendly staff but professional too, we enjoyed talking to them finding out about Tunisia and having a laugh, Bashir was very helpful. Amin who works nights was ready to settle us into the hotel and make us familiar with everything even at 1.30 am when we arrived on the first day, they had food ready for us in the room including dessert to welcome us. Only problem was some of the staff can't speak English but if you can make things clear they will do anything for you.
The hotel was nice and peaceful, public areas are quite impressive and there are little courtyards which you can wonder round looked after well with flowers. In the evening its pleasant to walk around the grounds with the ambient decorative lights and we liked sitting by the pool which looked beautiful with all the lamps and listening to live music. There is nothing we can say we were unhappy about it was a lovely experience staying there, Rafiq from the animation team is very friendly and helpful, during the day they go round talking to every one and provide a very personal service. Every one was very approachable and would smile and say hello. The beach is clean, the see was beautiful and blue it looked amazing although we did not get much time there as there is so much to do and see in Tunisia.
We used public transport, bus and trains to get around even Louage. Bus to Hammamet is only 1 dinar, which is a lovely busy old town to wonder around. Taxi to Hammamet Bou Rigba train station is around 5 to 8 dinars, from where you can go to Sousse takes 1 hour or Tunis the capital city takes 1.30 min.
Make a trip to El Djem,(ticket 7 dinar+1 for photo) the Roman coliseum, it is fabulous and breath-taking and visit the Roman villa/museum there as well. Best is to take train direct from Hammamet in the morning 8.30 so you don't waste your time, which is 20dinar return on first class. If using trains they are great even the second class just check the time tables as trains are not frequent enough and you cannot use your second class on first class although you can upgrade if required but might find there are no seats left as first class is only two cabins long.
We loved Sidi bou Said A beautiful scenic village with quaint shisha cafes and restaurants, Cartharage is worth a visit too, again beautiful sights rom hilltops and lots of Roman history to see. both can be reached from Tunis,(or ask at the tourist Take TGM, over land metro to carthage which is less than 1 dinar from there you can wonder around the different sites and take TGM again to Sidi Bou Said, about 5 mins away or arrange a taxi to stay with you in Carthage to visit 7 sites included in your ticket( 10 dinar) and take you to sidi bou Said for around 30 dinar. We went to two sites at Carthage taxi stayed with us for 2.30hrs the dropped us off at Sidi for only 18 dinars.
In Yasmine hammamet a Pirate boat trip is very fun there is a lot of entertainment, we went on the Sultan, they do a great job literally swinging above your heads doing acrobats and we got to see dolphins too. Get the tickets your self from the marina booth will be cheaper 20 dinar each, the reps who come to the hotel were charging 45 dinar each!
we did quad biking as well, another brilliant experience driving up to the mountains amazing views, again there is a booth at the Marina about 40 dinar if two share or each 50 dinar a 2hr trip
Thing to note always try to get the price lower than stated it works! Have banter with them they are friendly and just trying to earn a living.
Another trip we enjoyed was the zoo Frigura Park get ticket for 45 dinar to include zoo and dolphin show which is a separate part check the time of the show to avoid disappointment and then from five you have Zulu dance entertainment at the Shaka restaurant , drinks and meal included, again great entertainment.
Finally the hotel staff where so great on our last day we took photos. they were such a sweet bunch gave their emails to stay in touch.
We look forward to going back there again.

As the last 2 reviews mine is very similar.
If you are looking for a nice quiet and relaxing holiday then this hotel is the one, small and friendly and quiet the last hotel in jasmine hammamet. The rooms are spacious and clean our room 4016 overlooked the pool which was very nice. The staff at the hotel are very good and friendly ( Adel the poolman, Mohamed the barman and Ahmed the waiter in the restaurant to name but a few). The food was very good with a wide selection to suit most people, even my partner who is very fussy about his food.
The beach is lovely with a bar and restaurant a few metres down the road, but you don't have to walk there is a tuk tuk which will take you down to the beach, towels are provided clean every day by the poolman. The hotel beach is quiet and relaxing.
There is entertainment in the hotel bar every evening which was ok.
With the hotel being on the outskirts it will take you about 30mins to walk to the centre, but you may need a stroll after the evening meal, but if you prefer you can grab a taxis for 4 dinas ( about £2) there are plenty of shops and bars and a lovely marina. Just be warned you will be encouraged to go into the shops to buy and be prepared to haggle, but if that's not for you there are also plenty of fixed price shops. we took a trip by taxis to the African market in Nebul where you can pick up some good bargins.
On the downside of the hotel I would point out that the décor in the rooms could do with a little attention and replacing some bulbs on the balconys may help, but don't let that put you off the hotel was very nice and we would definitely go again. Carole and Scott
