Me, Gina and Isaac all went away this year to Tunisia and stayed at Venus Beach, Hammamet by Magic Hotels, here is some of our holiday and below is also my review on the hotel its-self.

In this video I try to cover the splash park, the rooms, the food and the other activities you can find at the hotel.
Below is my review on the whole holiday that I left on the First Choice (TUI) website:
I shall take this from the start, following ourselves falling foul on our last family holiday due to the collapse of Low Cost Holidays, we thought it best to book with an ABTA agent and visited your store in Warrington, the agent was very helpful and spent time with us to ensure that this holiday would be perfect.
We got to the airport, MAN, and although it was a little chaotic and security was a complete shambles also not forgetting the fact that the gate also had no seating for the passengers due to Manchester Airport removing the seats in favor of another overpriced coffee shop didn't dampen our mood too much.
We got on the plane and the attentive crew greeted us and our little boy got to meet the gentleman who in his words, "work in the pointy end" of the plane made his day by getting to wear the captains hat!
The flight went smoothly and promptly got us to the hot African sun of Tunisia, alas with a glitch, on board the plane there were no visa entry forms so carnage ensured as 3 flights all arrived within moments to Enfida Airport and each passenger needing the green cards to enter the country causing passengers to flap like crazy looking for pens, getting details from passports all while children and the like all slowly cook in the hot terminal while all this unfolded.
Moving onto the baggage carousels, it also became apparent that the very same flights all had their baggage placed onto the same carousel belt resulting in yet another delay where our baggage took 90 minutes from clearing passport control to retrieve.
Now I understand that the airports are beyond the scope of First Choice, but I feel that attention should be drawn to the woes which the First Choice passengers endure as the airports are the starting and end points of which all holiday makers undergo and also may set the mood for the holiday unfairly.
Now shooting forward to Splashworld Venus Beach, we dropped our bags off, got a nice welcome drink cocktail and quickly got checked in and got into our fantastic sea view room, when I say fantastic, both me and my wife thought it could have been the best room in the hotel.
Seriously it felt like winning the lottery, getting this amazing room and the stunning view all after being caught by Low Cost holiday collapse, getting treated like this we truly felt blessed.
Now I could honestly go on and on forever describing how great the hotel was, how amazing the animation team were, just how clean the hotel is and just how friendly every single employee was out there, not forgetting the positive reassuring sense of security following the tragedy that fell upon the Tunisia during the shooting several years ago and the hard times that must have affected a whole country, that appears so dependent on tourism fall back several years, however none of the worry was in our minds after seeing how they, as a country have really stepped upto the plate to protect everyone.
Honestly, I cannot fault the hotel one bit, I could see how the menu could aggrieve some customers as I would sum it up as a child biased hotel with kiddy type of food, while there is a large selection on offer, the bulk of which is defiantly aimed to the smaller, younger holiday makers amd after all, family holidays to me are all about the children making memories for the future and if there happy eating pasta and chips every day then I'm all for it! So in summary for me there is no issues there, as there is always plenty of hot tasty food on offer and regardless of your pallette, there will always be something to eat.
Finally mentioning the pools (the main attraction of the hotel) there is a huge amount of life guards on duty (who all love their whistles!) but they reinforce just how customer centric driven the hotel is, always putting the guests first!
Would I go again.....
The only question is, how do we get the same room every year!
Absolutely made up with the holiday so thanks First Choice, Thanks!!
