We stayed here for one night on our way to the kite spot further north. We had a confirmed reservation, but on arrival we were informed there was no record of us and hotel was fully booked... bit of a problem. They were very busy checkin in people and asked us to wait. The manager was very friendly and accommodating... More

Probably one of the best hotels in Dakhla. Rather expensive. The spa isn't realy a spa but the massage was good. Staff was friendly. Rooms were big and clean, great view over the ocean. They didn't want to except credit cards if you only stay for one night.

TL;DR: My only reason to stay here again would be a gun pointed at my head. The good: * the place is kept really clean The bad (based on my experience in room 12): * their "sea view" rooms (not the "superior sea view"-rooms) are on ground floor with seating arrangements between the windows and the sea - that's right,...

Overall, i will be going back there... More

Breakfast very average, nice location but they didint profit from that as a hotel management.. Rooms without view are so claustrophobic. Very average not wow. Rooms on the lower floor are very noisy u feel u are in the restaurant it self not in a private room.
