    An amazing experience. The rooms and facilities were basic but the people were so friendly and generous. Our children, 17years and 11 years thought the whole experience was fantastic. The surrounding town was beautiful - amazing sunsets!

    This cave hotel is very basic. The large rooms are not very clean. The blankets looked as though they hadn’t been washed for months. The light switch was not close to the bed so you definitely need a torch. The one power socket in the...More

    Loved this place. It's just great to sleep in such a special place with such a special history. Before, whole families would dig a hole and make rooms under the ground and lived there together. Bed was fine, but I wasn't expecting a high quality...More

    What does it cost? We will be in Tunisia 9-12 days in November OR January and want to get off the usual track and in to the desert. Any suggestions?

    When we were there in March this year it was £12 per person per night. 3 of us were sharing a room, but there are smaller and larger rooms to accomodate couples and larger families. The price includes traditional Tunisian... More
