    Location 10.0 /10

    The Tamerza Palace is located in the mountains overlooking the Chott el Jerid, 40 miles from the city of Tozeur. Allow about 1 hour for the transfer to the airport of Tozeur.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    There are 65 rooms, all oriented towards the village of Tamerza. No bad surprise for the view then, but there is not always a balcony. Only 24 rooms have one. As for the decoration, abstract or semi-figurative paintings nicely adorn the walls. The white rendering makes the accommodations bright and spacious (215 square feet for the standard rooms). Berber rugs on the ground for the local flavour; minimalist and refined wrought iron furniture. The bathrooms have a bathtub, a hairdryer, a liquid soap dispenser and bathrobes. Other equipment can be found in the rooms: air conditioning, direct telephone, satellite television, a minibar and a safe.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Constructed in 1992, the Tamerza Palace is built on the rock hill facing the rammed earth village of Tamerza. Its exterior architecture, earth coloured, blends easily in the natural environment. Inside, you discover a lobby organised as the hall of a private house. Below the lobby, lounges lit by a picture window. The latter overlooks the swimming pool and its terrace made of local stones. Everywhere in the hotel, typical and refined decoration objects are noticeable. A carved wood trunk in the halls leading to the bedrooms, a brass ewer on a marble edge next to the bar, wrought iron moucharabiehs decorating inside windows, curtains draping the doors of the rooms... So many details that classify this hotel in the category of charming facilities. Outside, the swimming pool is large enough to swim a few laps (about 82 feet long). A smaller pool for children is close by. Wrought iron deckchairs, mattresses (bath towels are provided), sunshades in natural fibers are set all around.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The dining room of the restaurant, with picture windows, overlooks the village of Tamerza. In the morning, breakfast is served buffet style. No dishes as far as the eye can see like in a grand hotel, but everything is there (except fresh orange juice) and everything is good: cooked meats, cheese, cakes, pastries, dates... Fried eggs and crepes are prepared on request. At lunch and in the evening, meals are offered in menu, à la carte or buffet style. Do not miss the opportunity to try the delicious Tunisian specialties, like the Djerbian tajine, the Kerkeienese squids , the chorba (soup) with lamb. Choice also of: international recipes like unilateral grilled fish and entrecôte maître d'hotel. Possibility on request to eat on the terrace next to the swimming pool.

    To know

    An extension of the hotel opened in March 2007. It has additional rooms (suites), a fitness room, a hammam, a bar and a small supermarket (very useful because, as there are for now are no stores in the immediate surroundings).

    From the hotel, the old village of Tamerza (abandoned after the heavy rains of 1969) is accessible on foot. You only need to go down the wadi then go back up on the hill on the other side. Hiking lovers will be able to continue their exploration until the oasis of Chebika (allow 1 hour and a half). In return, you must rent a car or ask for a taxi to visit the rest of the area (Midès canyon, Nefta oasis, among others).

    • Sarra Sarra Sarra

      • Value for money 6.71
      • Location 10.0

      With its orange walls, ochre bricks, and Hispano-Moorish facade, the Sarra has the potential to really impress. Located on the hillside in the tourist zone, it enjoys one of the finest views of the palm grove and golf course. However, when you enter the park and its unkempt garden, you might well find yourself wondering if the place is still in business, which is a real pity. The hotel manager extends a relaxed welcome in the reception area in an attempt to inject a sense of warmth into the establishment, which once enjoyed a certain prestige. It is well suited to backpackers, and although it claims a 3 star rating, 2 stars would be a more realistic assessment.

      • Value for money 6.08
      • Location 10.0

      The Hafsi Hotel has lost much of its old splendour, which is a real pity! Ideally, the refacing and renovation work carried out in 2008 should have restored the building's lovely colours. Despite a friendly welcome at the reception desk, the setting is disappointing with its gloomy colours and outdated furniture. Like the first hotels that were built in Tozeur, the Hafsi would look a lot better if it were to undergo proper refurbishment work. However, it does have a backpacker's charm to it that some may find pleasant. The 3 stars it boasts were awarded back in 1973!

    • Ramla Tozeur Ramla Tozeur Ramla Tozeur

      • Value for money 6.91
      • Location 5.12

      Despite its 4 stars, the Ramla hotel is closer to a 3 star hotel by French standards, but it continues to benefit from the ancient Tunisian classification system. However, it is a charming, middle of the range, 3 star Tunisian hotel. Opened in 1994, it undergoes regular renovations. It has kept a traditional architectural style and shows a taste for a 30's-style interior mixed with oriental touches, as seen in the mashrabiyas in almost every room, the zelliges, and the mosaic arabesques. Quaint bordering on kitsch but full of charm, the Ramla provides a friendly place to stay for guests who are looking for a decent level of comfort without any ostentatious luxuries.

      • Location 4.75

      Formerly part of the Abou Nawas chain, this, the largest hotel in Tozeur, was bought in 2005 by the Mhiri family - the founders and owners of the El Mouradi brand, which now owns 15 upmarket establishments in Tunisia. Following major renovations, the El Mouradi Tozeur reopened in late 2008. It is housed in a huge white block that dominates the tourist resort (as far as the hotels are concentrated and not the main tourist attractions) of the more elegantly named La Corniche. One of the hotel's major positive points, and something which comes as a pleasant surprise in a hotel of this size, is the warm and spontaneous welcome you'll receive from the management. The El Mouradi is now seen by locals and Tunisian visitors as an essential part of any visit to the area. Far from the image you might have of a Saharan hotel, this one actually follows consistent international standards, much to the comfort of its cosmopolitan clientele.
