We stayed in the hotel 3 days, just the time to discover the city. Not a lot of things to see in the city except big stones in the bay area and having some Quad rides in the nearby mountains. So we stayed in the hotel. Food was good, indoor swimming pool as well. Warm water, nothing to complain on.... More

Tabarka is a gorgeous place in Tunisia and a must see during your stay in the country. You enjoy a rare combination of nice beaches and luscious green forests perched on top of the mountain. We enjoyed Tabarka but Dar Ismail not so much. We went there in our honey moon as our last stop visiting three regions and three... More

5 star hotel on along the Mediterranean coast east of Tarbarka. Beautiful building with a spectacular swimming pool. Excellent access to beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas. Room interiors were just so so; decor felt like a cheap motel room. Room also faintly smelled of tobacco smoke, and touching the drapes left your hands feeling dirty. Dinner and breakfast buffet...

Tabarka is worth visiting but this hotel was TERRIBLE. Avoid it. We went there and were very disappointed. Very old furniture, garden door doesn't close. Complained, moved to another room on 4th floor with out of service elevators. We canceled our stay and moved to another hotel.

The advantage of this hotel is location - at the seaside with beautiful view from the beach. It has a nice swimming pool also. Rooms are old with poor AC. Staff, restaurant, rude (not all) - how is that possible that waiter is shouting at the hotel guests for nothing - seating at the wrong table even if there are... More

The hotel is clean with a friendly staff, located near (15minute walk) to a peaceful town with countless souvenir shops and restaurants. The hotel is right at a gorgeous beach. The animation team makes sure you are having fun during your stay so there is a fun program running all day long, including water games, beach volleyball, zumba dancing and... More

It was a good summer vacation there. Tabarka is one of the many gems in Tunisia. The mountain, the beach... It is calm in summer and really a beatiful place to visit. The jazz festival adds attractiveness to Tabarka. On the nothern west side of the country, it has a boredr with Algeria, for the tourists who wish to visit... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. I liked the architecture from the very beginning. The rooms were clean and tidy every day. From the restaurant where we were having the breakfeast to the beach it took less then 2 minutes. I cannot complain about the food. Every day we experienced something different, large choice of meals. What I liked and appreciated... More

This hotel is one of the worst I have stayed in in thirty years of extensive travel. I would describe this as a holiday camp for Eastern Europeans, and a few Algerians. The food hall, ie restaurant serves some of the worst food I have ever had the misfortune to have to eat. The reception guy is so rude it... More
