“This region of Tunisia is famous for the dwellings which were carved into the earth to escape from the heat of the desert. There are several “troglodyte” hotels in the area, one of which was the setting for the famous bar scene in the original Star Wars movie.
The Marhala is probably the better of the two that I have seen. It is clean, comfortable, and roomy. We stayed just one night, full board. The cost for our family of four with three meals was the equivalent of $40. Very cheap considering the food was quite good.…”
