The title sums up thoughts pretty well. That's what comes to mind when I think back to this place. However that being said, it's not a pool for laps if that's what you're interested in. It's great for the family though as there are open enough places to swim and there's the lazy river. What else can I say? It's... More

We spent a week end there last february, and it was a nightmare. There was too many excursion and the noise was unbearable. We went with another couple, they hadn't hot water in the room and the window could not be opened. There was no animation, the staff was not kind and not professionnal at all. They don't even hear...

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
