Captain's Desert Camp, Wadi Rum
Expensive tourist trap in Wadi Rum
Totally faux "genuine Bedouin camp experience". The so-called Bedouin tents were a concrete structure with some carpet material stapled on. We had "de-luxe" rooms including bathroom and shower. Also extremely primitive, with the toilet seat falling off, and the shower only had cold water. The room itself was dirty, with the cloth covering the walls full of stains. And at night it was stiflingly hot after heating up all day, and no fan provided to move the air. To get a minimum of sleep it was necessary to open the door which helped a little, but also gave free entry to the mosquitoes which the net (which was placed to the side of the bed, so it didn't reach the floor on one side) couldn't keep out. So when we finally could get up, all of us had body and face completely eaten by mosquitoes, and the legs by bed bugs. The bed itself is terrible, with worn out mattresses, and dirty, worn linen. If this had been really cheap, I would have accepted some - or maybe even all of it (the stuff you deal with when camping) - but this room was more expensive than the five star resort room in Aqaba, so you do expect a minimum of a standard. Also the promised "zarb", heavily advertised as part of the experience on the Captain's on web-site never materialized. Dinner was badly barbecued meat (especially the chicken slice was really overcooked and dry) with decent side dishes. Breakfast was OK, and no more. On the positive side. Wadi Rum. Absolutely stunning desert landscape.
