“Great Resort”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had an awesome time in this resort. Everybody is very friendly, room are clean and decent an beach is just few steps from the room.

Our room had a beautiful view of a nice garden. The food in the resort is pretty decent.

Special thanks belongs to the staff, who made sure that our stay is even more enjoyable. Particularly to guest relation Salma, receptionist Hamdi, shisha waiter Ibrahim, night pizza chef Sabri and morning coffee waiter Ali. Thank you guys very much, you are doing a great job.

Excellent food en superclean place ! Ideal with childres since there are 3 glides !
Superb location near the sea. Only a pity that our shower rail was broken and that the window curtain was too small. Beds are hard to sleep in, we asked for softer ones and received one.

Buffet food is without flavor, it's served cold and there's a general lack of hygiene (picking up food with a dirty cloth and throwing it back in). Restaurants are to be reserved a day in advance at 9AM but don't bother getting up. Not only do you have to choose your food at reservation, it is low quality and again served cold. We choose couscous in the Tunesian restaurant and were quite surprised when the same dish was presented to our neighbours as tajine. The beef burger turned out to be turkey - though the chef could only agree with us after a long discussion. Cocktails are made with whatever liquor is available (mojito with gin doesn't really give the same effect) and wines are sure to give you a headache.

Hygiene in the rooms is basic, not worth 4 stars but sufficient. Sleeping above the disco is not a good idea, stay away from the street facing wing.

Staff in reception is unfriendly, even rude. Some waiters are friendly, others extremely annoyed when you ask them a question. Complaining has no use, the management is not in favor of West-Europeans. They have leased the Miramar hotel grounds for x years, called it "Moviegate" and just want to make money - if one travel agent stops booking, there's sure to be another one. Also, mind the Russians ordering vodka at 9AM - I know it's not fair on all Russians, but there was one guy who was drunk enough to leave blood stains on the stairs after hitting a glassed door.

Time for the pro's : the hotel grounds are beautiful, lots of space, 3 outdoor & 1 indoor pool, situated on the beach, some of the staff is very friendly and the sun is hot...

Room Tip: Avoid the street wing

I stayed here for a week on my honeymoon and was really impressed by the quality of of the service. Everyone knew my name and remembered it for most of my stay, in some cases, I didn't even have to tell them my name, they just remembered me from check in I guess. I would like to also thank Max for taking great care of me and my wife during our stay. He was really helpful and very kind. He even went to the extent of giving me his cell number and told me to call him on his personal line if I needed anything. That was great! The hotel was in a very nice and clean area, as well as on the beach. A 5 minute taxi ride, (about 5 TD) to the marina. The room was also very clean and nice, we had a suit with a living room and to AC units. Stayed nice and cool during the hot summer months of Tunisia. I have no negatives about this hotel. I loved the service, cleanliness, area, staff, (Animation team too), and the food buffet was off the charts. I can't wait to go back again next summer!! Merci Max and Oumar Aouij ;) Aziza too..

Room Tip: Ask for Max, he'll make sure you have a wonderful stay! Don't forget to tip him!! He really...

GENERAL

I think hotels should close the health point of view. Europe, this low level should not be out of the question. This hotel is really dangerous to health hotel, I do not recommend it to anyone. Least for families with children.

HOTEL ROOMS

The rooms are terrible condition and not healthy. They suffer from widespread water damage and moisture. Mold can be clearly seen and smelled. The walls are paper thin, and therefore there aren't any privacy. There are also cockroaches running all over the roof and walls!!

POOL AREA AND BEACH

The pools are very crowded and competition will occur in beach chairs. Some tourists behavior is inappropriate and therefore you may even lose your beach chair while swimming.

The beach is beautiful, but the sea is floating in the water a camel feces. Beach chairs are hard to find, but with tipping the beach boy will find you a chair. Services sellers are more aggressive, so be prepared.

FOOD

This hotel was a shocking experience. Do not take an all-inclusive! Buffet dining is full of flies and stray cats. Ventilation is not playing and the food is going bad in wrong temperature. Be careful what you eat, some guest became seriously ill during their stay!

The hotel's other restaurants require reserving a table, which in turn requires tipping that you can make ​​a reservation at all. Restaurants food level is also very low and they offer the same(!) food that they offer in the buffet.

SERVICES

Take into account the culture and the level of the hotel. You do not get any service unless you tip.

I do not recommend Hammamet as a vacation place and especially not this hotel. The entire holiday we were just hoping to get out of there. Complete waste of money!

Room Tip: Do not go there!

Hotel appears very nice and clean, the food is varied, but the beef could be a little more of. the bread was delicious and the fruit was also good and plenty of it. you have to get up early to get a sunbed on the beach. nice beach and water, bar on the beach could be a little more efficient. but if you give tips first, money talk everywhere, the streets around the hotel is also okay to visit, they are not as intrusive. but like you two watch there shops. we had a great vacation there. a place we one day will visit again.

Room Tip: Ocean view, or if you can get behind the restaurant. there are not mush noise.
