Booked this 2-week stay months ago, when the reviews all seemed very positive, then was almost frightened off by the appalling reviews later in the year. Luckily, every other hotel in Yasmine Hammamet seemed to get awful reviews at the same time, so there didn't seem any point in changing hotels, and I'm so glad we didn't.
There were a few hiccoughs, yes, concerning some attempted small sharp practices and above all the lack of presentation skills, and, often, imagination, with the food; but the accommodation ("bungalows" = roomy apartments) was clean, spacious and comfortable, the cleaning staff an absolute delight, the grounds nicely laid out and maintained, the pool cold but fun (probably would have been over-crowded if the hotel were full). Yes the food got very samey, but there was quite a variety on offer every day, and even the breakfasts got better and better, with designer omelettes available by the end.
Location suited us very well, at the far end of the road south out of Yasmine, so away from the touts and the noisy clubs etc, but easily reached on foot, by bus, taxi or even Noddy Train. The nearby beach is wonderful (pity Villa Noria's beach bar was closed down, but easy access to all the other hotel sites).
There was a sort of end-of-season feel to things, but I still can't imagine what the earlier reviewers can have done to get such treatment from the staff - or what sort of baguettes they are used to for breakfast! Yes there is an enormous difference between this and a 5* hotel, but the price gap is even wider. This was a very enjoyable relaxing holiday in a very pleasant place - and extraordinary value for money.
Shokran Jazeelan to everyone at Villa Moria
