Open in July 2007, the Iberostar Tabarka Beach has 253 rooms (and suites), including 129 in the main block (also housing the reception, the bars and restaurants, the thalassotherapy centre), and the rest (124 rooms) in 1-storey adjacent villas, forming two extra blocks on either part of the central building. The entrance door opens onto the circular lobby, topped with a high dome. Daylight comes in through the bay windows at the back (that's where the lobby-bar is, extended by a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and the sea). The general look of the place is disappointing, however, because of the choice of colours (brown, yellow-brown, pearl grey), the sparse furniture and the discreetly placed plants which are hardly noticeable: a feeling of emptiness, coldness or of a hotel in its pre-opening phase. We would recommend the setting up of a Berber tent in the centre of the lobby; or an island planted with trees; or a fountain with colourful mosaic tiles. This revamp for the lobby can also be done for the terraces, the corridors and even the thalassotherapy centre. Some colourful paint, decorative pottery, or sculptures on lit-up supports would definitely brighten it up a bit... That said, the hotel offers everything you need for you to have a healthy and relaxing holiday: two outdoor swimming pools (stretching over approximately 49 ft in length or diameter), an indoor pool (65 ft long, perfect for swimming), a playground and a paddling pool. Deckchairs, square canvas parasols spread out around the brick-paved perimeter. Bath towels are available for a deposit.
