The next morning we had coffee delivered to our room, which we was charged for. We thought all inclusive, meant all inclusive. Breakfast was disappointing too. Our rep from Jumbo tours did not arrive. We managed to move to a bigger, better room, which helped somewhat.
We had no induction to the hotel till day three, when the manager actually sat us down and explained everything. The hotel itself was quite clean, some .of the staff more friendly and helpful than others. We were the only English in the hotel and the first English in 3 years. At times this felt quite isolating.
The animation team, especially Zo and Mahood the waiter were helpful and friendly, they made our stay bearable. The water aerobics and archery classes were fun and relaxing.
I would advise against any women travelling here, without a husband or partner! Although in the confines of the hotel it is safe, outside is another story. The men can be letchy and bothersome, they will not leave you alone and will not take no for an answer. My arms are bruised where they tried to pull me into their shop to purchase items. It was not a pleasant experience.
Some taxi drivers like to make sexual innuendo's. Do not travel alone it is not safe, always book you taxi through the hotel and ask the staff to make a note of the taxi no, also ask how much before you ride, they often overcharge!
I would not recommend this hotel or area for a girlie holiday or for a family with teenagers or small children. It would be more suitable for couples or honeymooners.
It is not an All inclusive Hotel as such, It’s more like full board with refreshment within a restricted time limit. The food was ok, but the same thing most days.

Hotel has nice garden, wide swimming-pool, good location - near sea and the city centre. Hall near reception look nice.
But on the floors is a catastrophe: stink and dirt.
Hotel staff are sleepy and slow. Maybe for tips they are litle faster. Restaurant is stuffy with fly.
Entertainments were weak and litle boring but expensive (a tickets were sold before evening entertainments). There were no entertainments in the morning and afternoon.

The rooms are always cleaned very efficently. The Food is very good and always available on time. The staff in this area are excellent.
My grandchildren when they went with us, enjoyed themselves very much, the pool area was very safe for youngsters and the beach was a very short distant from the hotel and very safe to approach.
The new Thalassa Palace is a great addition, especially for the young at heart. I look forward to next year, when I will be attending again, hopefully many more times to come.
I would recommend this hotel to both young and old as both myself and husband are OAP we find this area very relaxing, but it also appeals to youngster, there are plenty of sporting activities available on the beach also in the hotel.
There is also a very good taxi service into Hammamet Town and it is very reasonable. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.

The hotel is about an eight minute taxi ride from Hammamet centre ( this cost about
