I went years ago and the place was very interesting to say the least.You're in "biblical"world with a bit of modern thrown in just to confuse you.However,always promised myself i'd go back there eventually. Travel agent told me a couple of days ago that it's most definately the bestest place ever for kids...!(if you'd asked me i'd have said definately not...but )apparently it is absolutely fantastic for kids...especially for Port El Kantoui...which-when I was there-was a lock up other words you had to"know"people to get in.

We've been last 2 years to a place just 5 kms from Hammamet. Didn't notice it being smelly, and the beaches are lovely. We had lovely food, but that depends on the individual places( we had no upset tummies either)

If you go to the markets you will get hassled the way you would in any foreign country if you're obviously a tourist(with cash to spend)However, the people were very friendly and all could speak some english.

We're going for a third time later this year- and we don't do that normally- this time we're going to Hammamet! My kids are 4 and 12, so been going since ds was 2.

kathh where are you going ??? we are going 30 sep

KathH Tue 05-Sep-06 19:41:33

Hammamet - I'm terrified! Some of the hotel reviews say its really good & some say its a hell hole - should remember my own advice not to check reviews once you've already booked!

when u going

hitchcock Tue 05-Sep-06 20:52:50

we going port el something hotel got good write ups so fingers crossed we should be ok really looking forward to it

KathH Tue 05-Sep-06 21:25:52

October 21st we're going - do you mean port el kantiou or something? If you did, dh's dad & stepmum went a few years ago & loved it. We were really shocked! They're notoriously fussy & said it was the best holiday they'd had. His stepmum is in a wheelchair & we thought they were loonies to go to Tunisia. Just shows what I know about anything!
