we didn't really know what to expect with ' la palmeraie ' , we noticed that it wasn't recommended any more in the new edition of the lonely planet guide book and we wondered why ....we knew it was an older hotel and it didn't look like much from the outside but it was actually just fine and turned out to be great value ! we paid a little over $ 20 for a double room with A / C , television and our own bathroom with plenty of hot water.
what 's more ,the pool area was very pleasant and a great place to relax during the afternoon heat .
the hotel is also very well located , next to the ' timbuctu ' sign and the CTM bus station.
again,it's not luxury but nonetheless great value for money !
