Found 8th May 2015
Because this is in school holidays to go for 7 nights is £585 so ditto I feel your pain I was looking for a school holiday bargain too.

But this works out amazing for anyone without children or those daring enough to stay the extra week just a week later and your looking at £600+ for the same holiday.

Transfers are available on transfers4u.com
They work out cheaper than all other transfers I have searched and are
£22.20 per couple shuttle bus or if you are feeling a bit extravagant they offer private taxi for £54.56. This price is based on two people and the price is for a return journey.

15kg of luggage is included per person as well as 5kg hand luggage each.

It gets mixed reviews from trip advisor, I guess if you just want a cheap holiday and are not expecting 5* facilities or service, then you can't go far wrong.

= £522.72 per couple

or £261.36 each !!!!

That's £18.66 per night! inclusive of luggage, flights, transfers, meals, drinks, a full list of activities and possibly more. You'd be pretty pushed to get a 3 course meal for that price in the UK let alone anything else!

Average temperature is 20 degrees in may and 25 degrees in June.
Enjoy!!!!

loads of bargains if your kids arent tied to school hols... not impressed lol

I know in fact I've just searched and if I want to go on the same day 1 adult 1 child the price goes up to £700 odd ££ pp what is the sence? surely children cost less to cater for than adults. Children also don't have to pay tax on their air fair. So how this cost is worked out is beyond me.

It's almost plain sight active discrimination against families and children. 2 adults £500 or 1 adult one child £1400? that makes no sence at all.

I can understand most family rooms are taken. But if as a party you are prepared to split up and have 1 adult and one child in each room surely it should cost no more than if two adults were sharing?????

And the school holiday scamming continues.

At least it is not with Thomas Cook

i almost always book flights/hotel /transfer now due to this..much cheaper and easy to do
have just had two week family of 4 in morocco for easter hols (kids had the monday off school) cost £800 all inc for hotel and flights £68 each transfer £45 you have to shop around.....

I was there 2 weeks ago...
Not good if you've got children.
For example... For the whole week ice cream was available.e only twice & that was at lunch time... Children weren't really catered for.

The hotel itself is very tired & needs a lot of TLC... However it is clean

My kids aren't much into ice cream as long as there is a pool a beach and a kayak in sight and some kind of food to much on and water or lemonade to drink they are happy, I don't believe in spoiling them and sweet treats like lemonade and ice cream should only be consumed after a main meal for optimal dental hygiene. Children are a product of their environment if they have never had they will never know any different. I can't stand it when I see a toddler screaming for a fruit shoot in a supermarket and the parents are saying no. Kids love water and milk as babies, if you don't give them junk to begin with they will never know what they are missing.

As for the building being tired, 80% of our daytime we intend on being on the beach or outside of the hotel, we also like to see things as a bit shabby chic, worn and well used value for money. Which essentially is the essence of what most families want. There is a time for 5* romantic breaks and a time for dragging the kids to a 3* hotel not being worried that they are going to tarnish the decor. Children are quite capable beings and given the tools, sand, water, swimming lessons, a bucket and spade. They quite efficiently cater for themselves for hours on end. Especially when sunshine is added to the mix.

Can you do that?
Could someone tell me, single supplement is a killer sometimes. Could you just book for 2 people, and only one goes?

Tempted to put my life on the line for 14 days Inclusive.

Just came back from hammamet 2 weeks ago and in all honesty I would knock off 3/4 stars what the hotel advertised itself as. We thought we book a 4 star hotel which really would be classed as 1 star to uk standards! Rude staff you get a few towels in the rooms and no in room kettles or anything just a room with a bed and toilet!

If you add voucher code mon5467 you will get another £50 off the total.taking it to just pennies over £500.

Sorry voucher code is MOD5467

I personally would avoid at all costs. stayed there a couple of years ago. the hotel itself really needs a refurb, the staff ain't that friendly, the other visitors (mainly French) were loud and kept giving us dirty looks and most of all the pestering you get. Literally the whole holiday you get pestered to buy something, the pool, inside the hotel, the beach and most of all the town. Harassment isn't the word

There's a reason Tunisia holidays are cheap. Is a cheap holiday really worth risking the safety of your family and yourself for?

Went to Yasminne Hammermet during the Easter holidays and can say it was brilliant. We stayed at the Chich Khan which is 2015 Trip Advisors customer choice for service. When we went it was quiet which was nice. 2 adults, 2 kids and a baby was £1450 all inclusive plus approx £50 for transfers with Resorthoppa.

Its not a safety issue.
But then again ignorance is bliss.
Its economics. But of course the horrendous views if some individuals makes me pity them.

This hotel hasnt got good reviews. However Tunisia as a country is excellent. There is a conservative muslim population who are very good with you. £1 to your waiter is like double his/her daily wage. The country has a lot to offer. They do tend to haggle and get you in to shops, as do various countries in the world. Your Euros, Dollars, Pounds are very valuable to the Tunisians, as their currency is in house only. Remember if you do go, only change at the hotel as you need it, as the exchange rate back is poor.

There's risk everywhere.

Would you post this on a london bus offer or a holiday to new york?

I wouldn't consider going back to Tunisia tbh , it was the worst holiday I've ever been on (and I'm fairly well travelled).
The white sand beach and the weather was absolutely beautiful , that unfortunately was where the good points ended for us.
Food poisoning (could happen anywhere? yes totally agree , but poor food hygiene standards paired with intense heat and third world 'cost cutting' unfortunately means a much higher chance of this occurring , rude and aggressive locals (not all , but certainly outnumbered the polite ones !)
I can put up with things like other nationals (French , german etc) being rude, loud and overbearing , which they were but draw the line at walking past a local shop and having our 4 year old son dragged inside by the shopkeeper in an attempt to get you in their shop , seriously this is common place !! The guy was lucky to have kept his teeth on that occasion , believe me !

Everybody will have their own experiences I am sure but unfortunately ours was a poor one and I honestly have never had a bad holiday other than this. I believe a holiday is what you make it , it costs a lot of money to take your family away and of course cultures will be different , which I totally accept but Tunisia was a step too far for us.
Off to Sharm next week for 13 nights ...... can't wait !!

me too , would never go back to Tunisia , horrible place

Can't say you weren't warned

You scoffed someone for saying Tunisia isn't safe...I now scoff you because you could inadvertently by telling people Tunisia was safe, led them to unsafe and life threatening situations.

Well done.

Respect to you sir..at least you had the dignity to come on here after saying it's safe, to apologise for potentially sending those who took your words at face value and went to Tunisia, to possibly their deaths.

Shame on all those who said it was safe.

Yes..everywhere has unsafe areas and yes, many people have managed to go to Tunisia and return unharmed. But as someone would has been to Tunisia..I know full well what it's like..outside the hotels it doesn't feel safe and you'd have to be pretty nieve to think you're welcome over there.

No muslim country wants westerners on their soil..end of. You can kid yourself all you like but the reality is clear to see.

Dya know what....I wouldn't visit Turkey at the moment, not at all. I wouldn't visit ANY muslim country and I certainly wouldn't recommend any else to either.
