Reviewed 28 June 2015

Hotel was very nice, food was poor not much english food on offer, the best drinks was the beer shorts not that good they even ran out of gas on the beer pump for about 24hrs so no beer not good, room was ok, A/c in rooms was not very good, animation team were really good look out for magou you will hear her before you see her
The previous review has it spot on so no point me repeating it, we wont be returning tunisia. G & T

Room Tip: rooms on the other side hotel away from pool are very quiet

Located on the 2nd Floor with a Pool view, the room was cleaned on a daily basis to a very high standard, not that we were messy anyway. The Entertainment Gang had changed substantially with this years consisting of Tito, Twister and Badjo doing quite a good job keeping everyone entertained and Sam still in attendance as the 'Chief.' The food once again was plentiful with a wide choice, something to suit everyone's taste. My Girlfriend used the in Hotel Salon and had a beauty therapy session with various treatments for a very good price, I just had a half hour relaxing Massage which was excellent. Once again Mohammed came up trumps with a Quad Bike trip, a visit to the Friguia Wildlife Park which was awesome value for money at around £15 each which included Entrance to the Park and a return Taxi journey and we also went on the Pirate Ship Trip which was highly entertaining to say the least, many thanks to Mo for sorting all the Trips for us. A big thank you to all at the Hotel for making our stay a pleasurable memorable one again.

Room Tip: All rooms the same, just a bit quieter if you're not overlooking the Pool and you fancy an after...

The hotel is good for its worth, although at first I was somewhat disappointed with battered sliding windows and clogged drain in the sink. Well, the plumbing was fixed the next day, but then it turned out that the beach is littered with seaweeds, and cleaning would take some time. Meanwhile it was possible to swim nearby, however, all the sand was full of some vegetal remains — it is the same all over the Hammamet beach (as well as camels and horses from time to time).
Another problem I had encountered was the electricity that vanished one night and I had to ask for help at the reception twice. I don't know why they couldn't have sent somebody at once and certainly it's been upsetting.
On the good side, the meals were plenty and tasty, the animation team was friendly, resourceful and discreet (special thanks for water aerobics), the staff in general was nice and polite (some tips were welcomed, but not urged), and the pool was clean. The hotel is situated near the marina, a beautiful walking area with lots of cafés and restaurants, and within 15 minutes walk from an amusement park Cartage Land. After the weeds were cleaned, the beach turned out to be an attraction as well, because the water there is clean.

We have just stayed here for a week on the 10th June. We arrived late just as the buffet was closing, feeling tired and a bit deflated from what was left on offer we went straight up to out room and retired for the night. Don't let late night arrivals put you off! The rest of the holiday was fantastic the food was ok and the manager asked us for suggestions what English would like to see on offer for meal times. The hotel caters for big conferences so they catered for their clientele. As the week went on there was more choice and we was never left hungry.
The hotel was spotless and all the communal areas were constantly been cleaned. Our room was the same and the maids came everyday. We looked out to the pool and the room was really spacious. They turned on the air con early due to the heat..it wasn't supposed to start until the 15th.
The entertainment team couldn't have tried any harder with constant activities throughout the day. Even if you didn't want to take part in any they always made the effort to come and sit with you and talk. Just as we were leaving they were starting to do the evening entertainment out side on the stage rather than indoors, they spent hours each night creating the stage and sports areas... twister, badgo, magou and Tito you all work so hard with little recognition. Each staff member in the whole hotel couldn't do enough for you and all were polite and friendly. Go to the beach there is a bar on houda's private beach and again all staff were friendly and helpful. It was just over £1 for a bottle of lager, this was the case in most places. The hotel was in a brilliant location and don't be scared to go walking about during the evening... go to the marina its beautiful especially the restaurant called the boat, the food is gorgeous with a beautiful atmosphere.
We had a great stay in the hotel and in the resort of Yasmin Hammamet. We met some wonderful people out there and are planning a return visit. I recommend the hotel and resort to anyone... just don't expect the Ritz, it is exactly what you pay for.

The Houda yasmine made my experience in Tunisia perfect! With friendly, helpful and easy going staff who provide entertainment/animation such as water sports, disco, and late night shows etc. will miss these guys; also the hotel provides various food and drinks which are amazing. Houda Yasmine is also located in a convenient location which is just a 5 min walk to the beach and to the local shops and market. Through the hotel you can all do quad biking, camel/horse riding, Parachuting, jet skiing, diving and much more; therefore i recommend staying at the Houda Yasmine Hotel.

We spent a week here in June. The weather was glorious although 34 was too hot for myself. The hotel is very clean with maids constantly mopping the hallways and stairs. The staff are what makes this hotel. The animation team are fantastic if a little overbearing at first but when you get into yhe holiday mood they make sure everyone has a great stay. Twister, Badjo, Tito and Magou work very hard to keep guests entertained both day and night. The staff are quite salesy, on our first day we were approched by many staff trying to sell us various trips, t shirts and beauty treatments. We eventually ended up telling them we had no money left and we were left alone. The maids are really friendly they made a swan and heart with petals on our bed which was lovely. The beds themselves were not great and air con in rooms felt a bit pointless. Great hotel for smoker's as you can smoke anywhere apart from the lift. You can also take all inclusive food and drink back to your room. The only bad point is the food. It was terrible. We had every meal in the hotel and was getting very tired of carrotts and deep fried veg for breakfast by mid week. The variety of food is poor and although the desserts are much better than the mains theirs only so much strawberry mouse and water melon I can handle. On the plus side their is a pizzeria next door, you can get a big izza for 12 dinars about £4. The all inclusive drinks are limited to  3% larger, watered down gin, vodka or wiskey. Soft drinks are better, you can have orange, lemon, coca cola or sprite and water by the bottle. We heard the bar manager explain to a barman that the hotel allocates 3dinar per person per night for drinks. This is £1 each and not nearly enough to cater for guests. On our 2nd day we were asked for feedback. The staff member sat with us and was eager for us to give them top marks for everything which we were not willing to do. She also complained when I didn't put her name down as best staff member despite it being the first time we'd met her! As for the animation team they really are great. They put on a great show at night and theirs always activities you can get involved in. We loved aqua gym and crazy darts. Magou is a little touchy feely so brace yourselves for her! Overall great staff, poor food. We wouldn't return as it's not an area I felt safe in when leaving hotel grounds, pretty area but you gey pestered constantly when out of hotel.
