I visited Hotel Amira in Hammamet, Tunisia in July 2009 for 10 nights. It was my honeymoon but we were poor and needed a cheap hotel.
The reviews I read about this place before we actually went were shocking. I was really worried but we decided to go and make the most of it anyway.
The breakfasts were standard cereal, pastries, bread, meat and cheese with some more unusual salads. The evening meals were a choice of two dishes, normally very nicely cooked and tasty but certainly nothing to write home about. If you didn't want what they offered in the main restaurant you can order food from the barbecue by the pool for a very reasonable price. My husband was very impressed with the fresh fish dishes they offered.The rooms are air-conditioned and in the African heat I can not stress how vital that is. After a long day exploring the streets of Hammamet there is nothing nicer than collapsing on a fresh bed in a cool room. As I said before the bathrooms were not great. Our was in need of redecorating badly but the water pressure was great and there was no problem with hot water.
The pool was gorgeous. I loved laying out in the sun with a book by the pool following by a splash in the pool. The staff were really helpful and would make sure no-one stole your sun lounger. Once we came down to the pool and there were no spaces and the staff moved some new loungers into a nice shady spot for us.There is an area set up for entertainment but when I was there this wasn't used.
