“Wonderful Resort Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

We had booked this hotel within two months of going for our Silver Wedding holiday. we had read the reviews and although there are mixed opinions we thought we like the sound of this place. We stayed between the 8th-15th September 2011 and had been assigned a studio for 2. This was lovely, we had our own kitchenette area, a full bathroom and we were on ground floor level with our own patio area with table and chairs. The cleaning everyday was superb and the maid could make amazing displays with the towels and flower petals! We have to stress to readers that it is a Tunisian restaurant as we hadn't taken much notice of this fact when we booked, the food is of good quality, the chefs work very hard and there are various cooking stations where you can have a pizza made, omelette or fresh pasta, in the mornings there is also a chef who will make you fresh pancakes which are divine. i only struggled on one occasion the rest of the time i was fine. The dessert buffet is very good with lovely cakes and pattisserie and to have a Celtia and a coke(bottles) with our evening meal cost 5 tdinars, which is less than 2.50 !!!! There is a supermarket in the medina which has fresh baguettes delivered every lunchtime which are 200 millimees (10p), and you can get milk, butter etc there. I do remember reading about someone saying there is no toast at breakfast time, all you have to do is ask and they will make you some which they did for us! Location wise is excellent, everything you could ever need is within walking distance including the lovely beach and Asim who is excellent at his job. the beach was never crowded so always sunbeds available, the water is clear and clean apart from a couple of days when there was some seaweed. A lot of Tunisian people holiday at this hotel which means it has a good reputation locally, we met French, German and swiss people there. The medina is quite an experience but you can avoid it if you dont want to be hassled, the best place for hassle free shoppping is Joys, just up the road on the way to the beach, very good value and quite an atmosphere on a evening with entertainment!! Be careful of the main road you have to cross to get to Joys and the beach, extremely busy and quite dangerous at times, we saw a young girl get knocked down, she was ok thankfully. On our last day we found a lovely restaurant outside of Carthageland called L'Elephant, friendly staff and serve all kinds of food, both international and local, we actually ate with a beer and a coke for 6.50 and it was great. Carthageland is a small amusement park with some big rides and ones for the children and you can spend a couple of hours there. we took a taxi to old Hammanet, about a 15 minute drive and costs between 7-8 tdinars each way. it is worth a visit as the old medina is fascinating, we walked around the outside after we had been inside, the beach is not very good here purely due to the rubbish all over it. A walk to the marina at Yasmine hammamet is definately worth it, there are some beautiful boats and plenty of places to eat and drink. Generally a great location, good food, excellent service. the medina at nightime is lovely, local entertainers perform and it is a great atmosphere, its very friendly and children will receive a warm welcome, all in all a great holiday and we will return next year, a word of warning the Tunisian police will take any money off you when we you return to the airport, this I found most annoying as we were told that the exchange desk would be open but it wasn't, once you are cleared through security you cannot spend tdinars there or in the dutyfree area. feel free to ask me any questions I could go on forever!!!! enjoy it like we did, ignore the negative and discover Diar Lemdina for yourselves.

We visited Diar Lemdina in the beginning of September 2011 and we enjoyed everything here. The food, service, location, beach - everything is excellent. The staff in this hotel is the best I've ever met. They are helpful, intelligent, always smiling and all of them love children very much. My daughter fall in love with all of them.
Every evening we enjoyed shows that were hold in the hotel - belly dance, folk and modern dances, amazing contests like miss hotel etc. My daughter liked to dance on the mini-disco. Thanks to the animation team - Sassou, Marwen and Momo - they made our holidays unforgettable!
I will recommend this hotel to my friends and we are going to visit it again.

Just got back from a lovely 10 day trip to this hotel!! Food was fab, the rooms were absolutely huge and cleaned to a great standard daily. The hotel is set in a lovely location with lots to do for children. I would like to give a special mention to the animation team (Marwen and Mo Mo) for making our holiday that extra bit special and exciting - they're absolutely fab! See you next year! :)

This hotel has to be in my top three favourites because the hotel staff were very warm and welcoming and the service was some of the best I have ever had. I am very surprised to find a bad review from someone who stayed here in August because we and other British families we had met, had many positive things to say about the hotel and staff. The hotel is in the Medina where there is lots for the family to do and see. There was a show on the big stage in the centre of the Medina, every evening, a large water park, a fun park, a bouncy castle land (our children loved it there) and lots of Tunisian Cafes, bars and restaurants. The hotel also has it's own family entertainment. The room we were in was beautiful with plenty of space, my husband and I were even given our own bath robes! I would really recommend this hotel and are definitely going to return there again.

I have been staying near yasmine hammamet and have stayed in this hotel previously where i had a lovley time and a really unforgettable holiday, so i have been back to visit and as always i recieve a warm welcome from all the staff here, they always make an effort to say hello and talk to you!! In the evenings i come to stay as its somthing for me to do and always have a good time, the evening usually starts with the mini disco for children and they absoloutley love it and even the adults or teenagers sometimes join in... Before that there is chilled out music, slow and relaxing so u can enjoy a drink to the start of your night, i usually have the cafe au lait which is always really nice as a treat!! The animation staff always make an effort to speak to you and to others and make people join in with their shows or include them in a conversation and people always enjoy their company, i always see them making new friends with every one no matter who you are !! They have a couple of shows i've seen so far, the fakir show which consists of tricks and stunts and people from the audience can join in with this, it looks dangerous but they know what their doing and people are always surprised by how they can do it so its worth watching and also they do fire breathing and dancing with fire which everyone loves. My favourite shows are the ones with dancing they have traditional tunisian dance, belly dance, bolly wood and recently i think they have started to do break dance, hiphop and contemparary, so there is a mix to watch and the dancers dance beautifully and enthuastically and u can't take your eyes off them. After the show theres always music which always plays a mix of old and new songs latino, house, rnb , arabic there is somthing for everyone and the children always love dancing and the adults like to stay and relax while the music is playing and still when i leave at the end of the night people are still talking and laughing way in to the night... its nice to know the medina still hasnt changed and the animation staff and all the staff still go all out to please the people that visit !!!!

I have never written a review befor but feel i have to about this hotel !! After reading all the super reviews i was happy to go there. But this is not a 5 star by any means. we had to change rooms the night we got there so my 15 daughter had her own room, this they did without any problems ended up with a lovely suite. The main problem was the food !!!! It was awfull, breakfast lunch and dinner !! And im not a fussy eater, we ended up buying buscuits and crisps from the local shops. The other problem was the bar ! There was only the one in the lobby area nice as it was it was inside and we could not smoke while having a drink, we had to stand by the pool !!! ( great says the non smokers) I just wish someone had mentioned this fact, it says barS plural not just the 1 ! Most of the staff were great friendly and happy, too much so thought my 15 year old daughter ! This was the first holiday ive had that i actually wanted to go home.
