We spent a week at this hotel with our 2 teenage boys. We went all inclusive the first time ever. This type of holiday is ideal for teenagers as they can eat and drink as much as they like. I would say the quality of the food was not always high but it was ok. The staff in the hotel were lovely very friendly but I think if you have teenage girls you may want to take care as they were over familiar. The hotel was clean and the amenities were good. I had a massage and found the receptionist not at all helpful. We booked out free hamman treatment after the massage but they were obvioulsy running late so instead of being able to have it with our children the massage time ran over and so we missed them. It was all a bit haphazard. Plus there was no consultation or checking for contraindications which did worry me slightly. We booked with Thomas Cook and the rep was pleasant if not much use. The orientation meeting was more about selling trips then anything else. Make sure you have pleanty of change for the tips as this can add up. When you arrive you will be met by 'porters' who will take your luggage to the bus they expect a tip, make sure you have either a euro or a £1 otherwise they will ask for notes! They offer lots of activities during the day archery boules aqua areobics and there is a private beach where you don't have to pay for sun beds all really good. This was our first trip to Tunisia and I would go again. The resort of Yasmin Hammamet is very new and a bit plastic go to the old town much better and some really lovely restaurants. The old medina there is worth a visit but be worned the traders will do their best to part you from your money. The pottery is good, the carpets fab but whatever they tell you about the carpets be careful they will say they can ship it but this would be to an air port not your address. Also what ever they charge you will need to add 20% VAT when it comes into the country.
