Re: Yasmine Hammamet, Mahdia or MONASTIR??
My vote would go to Mahdia. The tourist zone might be fairly quiet in March, but the town itself is beautiful...far nicer than Monastir. The tourist zone, where all the hotels are, is not far from the town...easy to reach by walking along the beach or taking the metro...whereas I think most of the beach hotels in Monastir are quite isolated.
Monastir is very close to Sousse, so if you're spending 3 weeks in Sousse, you can easily visit Monastir during that time. Mahdia is about 2 hours south of Sousse, so it would make more sense to make Mahdia your base for the last week. Also you can use Mahdia as a base for visiting Sfax and the Kerkennah Islands, which are two hours by shared taxi south.
Hope this helps...
