The hotel has 123 rooms across Classic (21m²), which can accommodate up to two adults and have a sofa; Executive (21m²) on floors eight and nine; and one 60m² ocean view Suite with a Jacuzzi on the ninth floor. Classic and Executive rooms, which are designed differently, provide a desk, TV, mini bar, fridge, safe, coffee making provisions and either a bath and shower or shower unit.

Guests staying in Executive rooms have access to the 10th floor business lounge, which offers snacks, drinks, wine, coffee and teas, in addition to a happy hour. Another happy hour is available to guests of the hotel on the rooftop in summer and in the lobby lounge during the remainder of the year. In addition, the 10th floor has a rooftop garden with sun lounging deck and a bar, overlooking Metzitzim Beach.

“Tal By the Beach will continue to function as before with hosting groups and is ready to cater for B&B, half or full board with our improved choice of cuisine and upgraded dining room,” says Sales and Marketing Director of Atlas Hotels, Uri Kronkop, adding: “We have retained much of our previous staff, especially across our food & beverage department.” The hotel caters to an incoming market of around 60 percent, split between business guests and FITS/groups, mainly from the USA and Europe.
