Iberostar adds 2 hotels, upgrades 3 in Tunisia, Spain

PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN Iberostar Hotels & Resorts has added a pair of resorts to its portfolio and announces the renovations of three other properties across Tunisia and Spain.

In addition to recently opening Diar El Andalous in Sousse, Tunisia, Iberostar in June inaugurated the newly built Royal El Mansour in Mahdia, Tunisia. At its home island of Mallorca, Iberostar has reopened Royal Cupido and Club Cala Barca after extensive renovation projects. In nearby Marbella, the company has recently acquired Marbella Coral Beach, which will undergo a complete remodeling project this winter, with a reopening scheduled for April.

“The renovation of our properties in Mallorca is a result of the 2010 international expansion plan that aims to provide customers with a premium holiday experience and benefit the local tourism industry,” says John Long, Iberostar’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The new acquisitions in Marbella and Tunisia add to Iberostar’s significant existing presence in both of the regions and, alongside the refurbishment of Tunisian property, demonstrate Iberostar’s ongoing commitment to constantly improving its portfolio with exciting projects in popular destinations.”
