4/10 Fair

The property is slightly out side of the main road where most of the resorts are located. The camp in general was good. I understand it was a desert tent but the bedding cleanliness could be very much improved. The bathroom was well maintained and clean. The food was average and the cleanliness in the kitchen could be improved as well. Also, explore your options of hiring your own jeep or camel.

2/10 Poor

Do not stay here
If you are a non-local traveller please do not stay at this property. All of our money went down the drain as we left within a few hours of checking into this place. -Rooms are dirty. There were stains of bodily fluids on our sheets. -Rooms that were suppose to be “deluxe” had cracks around the window frame, letting in a massive amount of mosquitoes -When we asked the owner about cooking our food extra as the water does not suit our western stomachs, they were clearly annoyed and said it’s a buffet it’s the same for everyone and kept giving us the don’t worry nothing will happen speech. -Bathrooms were gross A local hotel owner told us that instead of booking a tent camp online, we would be better off doing it in town once we arrive. Will definitely be doing that next time.

The tents were not deluxe, they were pretty poor. The electric connection in the room was not stable. The furniture was unstable and creeking.

10/10 Exceptional

The thing that we most loved about this place was the food. And the service was also great. Desert safari experience was good too but little expensive. The cultural program is just okay. Towels are very bad. Caution: hot water is available only between 8/:30 am - 10:30 am.

8/10 Very Good

Good overnight experience
Good stay, good food and drinks. During the evening cultural programme, the mics were problematic. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the camp was providing hard drinks (not part of the package). However, their real income comes from arranging parasailing, dune bashing etc for which they've tie-ups.
