Medina Belisaire & Thalasso
Ranked #13 of 119 Hotels in Hammamet
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday at this hotel. The rooms were clean, well equipped and large enough with a good size balcony. Please remember this is North Africa & don't try to compare with UK 4 & 5 star accommodation, however we had no issues whatsoever although there are no tea & coffee making facilities & a travel kettle is handy (the bar staff are happy to provide milk & tea bags). The hotel in general is clean and well maintained but what really makes this hotel is the staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, particularly the bar and restaurant staff who are all multi-lingual and put us to shame with their ability to communicate in at least 4 languages!

Tunisia is a very poor country and the majority of staff earn less in a week than most British in 1/2 day - therefore leaving a small tip of 2-3 Dinah will ensure that you get superb service as will attempting simple Arabic such as 'shokran' (thankyou).

The food was good on the whole with plenty of choice and there was not a day when we could not find something to eat and the A La Carte within the hotel was superb.

Poolside - the animation team work tirelessly to ensure that you enjoy yourselves but do not hassle if you do not wish to join in. Yes the sun loungers are looking a little tired but it is getting late in the season so maybe this is due for attention?

Stayed: October 2013, traveled with family

There are thing's that are good and bad about this hotel if you go without too high an expectation you won't be disapointed.The room was spacious and very clean with bedding and towels changed everyday the maid was fab.There was always plenty of choice in the restaurant and the fresh fruit is delicious also the fresh bread/rolls was always very nice .A little annoying was they kept running out of cup's and saucers for tea or coffee and the cups are all on the small side no mugs. at breakfast the toaster wasn't very good had to put bread through 3 times before it browned and I think it would have been nice to have been able to have a coffee in morning in the room ,the fridge didn't work in our room either so warm water as opposed to ice cold .The animation team are terrific and work extremely hard and long hours special mention to ricardo and the bar staff by the entertainment area were lovely and friendly.The childcare staff were very good with the children .The beach isn't too far a few minutes walk although you get the impression it is straight onto beach from hotel in brochure.The beach is lovely but isn't private as we saw people who weren't staying at the hotel using the sunbed's and you have to go down early to get the more comfortable sunbed's otherwise you can only get the hard white plastic one's as opposed to the blue mesh ones seller's are constantly coming up to you asking you to buy their good's you wouldn't expect this at a private beach, the staff were friendly at the beach hut and the water is so clear and warm with the fish swimming round your feet it was fab .All in all we did enjoy the holiday and think some of the negative remarks are unjust as i said don't go with too high an expectation and you won't be dissapointed . taxi drivers will try to over charge so sort the price out first also stay clear of the steak house restarant it costs alot and the t bone l had was like rubber.

Room Tip: stay away from the main pool area as music goes on late try the side with quiet pool

belisaire is a very good hotel, nice and clean and friendly staff. we went it september after school hols so the hotel wasnt overly busy, was never really a long wait for food or drinks, i would say if you dont like pizza or pancakes you will not like this hotel. the only down side was the sales team constantly annoying you. or when they had the stalls open in the hotel the guys would not take no for a answer. tunisia can be a intimidating place if you are not used to the haggling system. dont smile at them it only helps them reel you in more. just a tip for the blokes. make sure you double check your mrs. is on the plane on the journey home you could find her replaced with a goat. (tunisian men are absolutely outrageous flirts and dogs)
