We stayed in a 'swiss tend' as it is called for one night. There are few desert resorts in the same area in Sam Sam dunes. Difficult to see the service difference between them. The one that we stayed on did not have even proper fan! Food was certainly not for 'foreigners needs' but staff was exceptional and tried to... More

We went to this desert resort / camp on 31st December, 2012 at noon (at around 2:30 pm). There is a reception area where we checked in and we were alloted tent number 12. There are around 30-40 tents here in total. The tent itself is spacious with minimal furniture but is very neat and tidy. The linen was clean... More
