Delicious Vegetables and Nice Grills
Relaxing atmosphere and good design. Rich selection of Tunisian, Italian, Turkish and other International meals. Salads and fruits were fresh and good. Grilled chicken, meatballs, sausage and lamb were also good.
Tunisia - once was enough
"The 4* Hotel Nesrine - more like Faulty Towers!"
We were expecting a 4* luxury all inclusive hotel on the golden beach with beauty spa etc etc... What we got was just about 2*, small pool, 1/4 mile from the beach and all inclusive except for everything that wasn't included! There was an airconditioned bar, but you had to buy the drinks from there. There was a snack bar, again, to buy from. There was a lunchtime BBQ and bar on the beach, again, you had to buy. Here is a picture of the all inclusive "luxury bar". And to top it all, the food was AWFUL so we ended up eating out every night or we'd have starved!
We took the 2 day trip (just to get out of the hotel and have something to remember the holiday by to be honest) It was a very long 2 days and over 900 miles on a coach that had seen better days, BUT, there were some really good bits and we got some memories! Go see the Colluseam (Gladiator), it really is atmospheric but we only had 40 minutes, not long enough! Matmata and the Burber caves were great but again not long enough (Star Wars) and a camel ride into the Sahara Desert was spectacular, well worth the trip. Take lots of change with you because you have to tip for everything and they don't give change easily!
"If I did it again?"
I would stay in Yasmine Hammamet, the new tourist area, lots more restaurants, bars, entertainment and shopping. The hotels are better quality too. If you aren't bothered about the sea, then I would have stayed in the Sahara.
I will be on holiday at the Hotel Nesrine with my daughter and grand children on the 26/07/06 and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this hotel supplies beach or pool towels as I dont want to pack unnecessary items.
