Marco Polo Hotel

The elegant Marco Polo Hotel is a large whitewashed building, decorated in an Arabian style, with mosaic floors and marble columns. It boasts an elegant spa and a large buffet restaurant. But it’s the huge pool with ocean views and swim-up bar that really steal the show. The hotel has an enviable beachfront location and a watersports centre, where you can hire canoes, pedaloes and catamarans. It’s in Yasmine Hammamet, a beach resort just a few miles away from Hammamet’s old quarter.

Overview of Hammamet

It’s easy to see why holidays to Tunisia are the next big thing. This diverse North African country is partly in the Sahara Desert, and it’s also bordered by the rugged Atlas Mountains. But the main draw is the many sandy beaches that stretch along the coast. The resort of Hammamet is a particularly popular beach destination. This cosmopolitan resort has a great nightlife and dining scene, and it also has a picturesque medieval souk. It’s the perfect spot for a sun-filled escape, and there’s nowhere better to stay than at Concorde Marco Polo Hotel.

Things to do in Hammamet

It would be easy to spend your entire trip lounging by the pool at Marco Polo Hotel, or on the pristine beach at Yasmine Hammamet. But head into Hammamet’s medina and you’ll be rewarded with an Aladdin’s cave of treasures in the stalls that line the cobbled streets. Pick up copper plates, shisha pipes and unique handicrafts. A mile away from the hotel, you’ll find Carthage Land, a theme park that recreates the ancient city with attractions from the spinning teacup rides and log flume to the 5D cinema.Sun, sea, sand and plenty of interesting attractions – what more could you ask for from a holiday?


Resort Summary

They say Hammamet is where tourism in Tunisia was born, and as far as destinations in the country go, they don’t come much more classically suave. Pristine white buildings boasting wide arches and curved rooftops make for handsome surroundings, and the sun seems all the brighter for their presence.

However, Hammamet is far more than a cultural centre. Although its roots extend back to Spanish exploration and Roman colonisation, Hammamet today is as Tunisian as they come. It’s also covered in plants of all kinds – particularly olive groves, lemon trees and oranges – hence why they nickname this town the Garden Resort.
