My wife and I stayed at a double room with a seaside view in Iberostar Saphir Palace in the end of September 2010. The room was quite big and looked fantastic with its marble floor, there is a free safe deposit box in the room (something not typical for Tunisia), the bed was extremely cozy, the morning view at the nearby beach and the Mediterranean sea is something that we will remember for a long time. The bathroom was entirely made of marble and looked more like a spa than a hotel bathroom! What we didn't like regarding the room were two things - the iron chairs on the balcony have been rusty and could damage your clothes; the other thing was that you can hear evetything on the street even with your windows closed. In general this 4-storey hotel with more than 220 rooms and above average pricing is very clean and having all the amenities you might need for your leisure time - great outdoor swimming pool, heated inside swimming pool, spa, fitness centre, piano bar with live music in the lobby, etc. It is situated in the modern Yasmine Hammamet. not faraway from the local Medina and is separated by the sea beach by just one street - the so called 7th November Blvd. The staff is quite helpful and friendly (with some exceptions in the restaurant) especially if you give them a small tip, but this is something so typical for Tunisia in general. The restaurant looks great, but I do think that they could offer food with much better quality. The other thing that we dislike (although it's not such a big problem) is that you have to cross the street in order to reach the sandy beach for tanning. I would recommend highly this hotel especially after being to other hotels in Hammamet and Tunisia in general!
The sea view, the room itself
This place was a great place to stay - not far from the main centre of Old Hammamet - and being enough away we were able to park outside the hotel on the main road.
This place is more as an apartment building - no breakfasts included, still a reception for security for guests and to monitor who is coming and going, ours was selfcontained, huge all done in colourful patterned tiles with comfortable furniture and views down to the street and just could make out the sunset over the beach.
And it was pretty cheap - only about £25 for two.
Excellent five star hotel.
We were there off season and given a suite which consisted of two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.
In the 'medina' was a theatre, shops selling handicrafts, brass, carpets, leather.
Although it was crowded, the service was excellent, as was the food.
There were enormous meeting facilities [we had a conference],and a swimming pool/pools.,
wonderfull hotel and all the way tunisian ambience. like all other hotels on the site, big and cosy. not more than 4 or 5 floors high the main caracteristic feature are the lobbys as high as the hotel itself. and very friendly staff , all languages spoken, and very arabic environment
great views over the yasmine beach or facing the other, way the pool . wide rooms all with balcony. and a gymnasium or a massage parlour to complete the perfect relaxed vacation.
We stayed in the very pretty Hotel Sahbi. While it was lovely, full of mosaics and boasting a beautiful tiled porch/overlook, it wasn't ideal. It had no heat and not enough blankets and while tht was bad enough, what was worse was the construction that banged very loadly through the night into the morning. Needless to say we got no sleep at all. And so was our first night in Tunisia...
i would imagine it would be a pleasant experience "in season"
