It's the end of the world and yet you have access to running water (showers), excellent food and even wifi... everyone is very friendly. The staff will attend to your every need. You are not treated there as a client but as a guest. I enjoyed having long conversations with the owner. The owner is from UK, so she knows... More

Staying at Dar Sidi Bounou is like a childhood summer holiday at a favourite aunt's house. You play in the sand dunes and kasbah ruins and then come back for captivating teatime tales and impromptu music and dance with friends and neighbours who drop in.

The staff make Dar Sidi Bounou and its why we have returned with groups each year but the place is going downhill fast with nothing being repaired or replaced despite discussing it with the owner/manager. Toilets and showers often don't work and ours leaked at the base. Such a shame this lovely place is falling into disrepair. Doubt if we... More

Dar S, Owner at Dar Sidi Bounou, responded to this review

Thanks so much for your helpful, understanding review of Dar Sidi Bounou... which is going "downhill fast" in your considered opinion. We are extremely sorry that we have not been able to fix the plumbing that you are complaining about... however it seems that you either were not listening, or did not fully understand the problem when you 'discussed' it...

Even though Dar Sidi Bounou is a long way from anywhere it is well worth the effort. Well there you can relax and simply enjoy being there. And it certainly helps that Rakia is an excellent cook! At Sidi Bounou everything seems to be possible, arrangeable and easy. The rhythm of life and the way of life overall differs from... More

Sometimes the best things happens without planning, which was our case during ten days traveling across Morocco, ending up in M'Hamid charming village at the gates of Sahara desert. Renting a car with our new traveling buddy Uli, we end up at Dar Sidi Bounou, and we fell in love in place immediately because of its mesmerizing beauty and good... More

My friend and I stayed at Dar Sidi Bounou over Christmas and had the loveliest time. The location is perfect -- a quiet retreat with tents and cabins dotted about and sand dunes to explore just beyond. If you're looking for soulless luxury then look elsewhere but if you want a relaxed, friendly place to chill in a beautiful setting... More

Why do you go travelling? Is it to meet people from a completely different place in a completely different setting and do completely different things, yet realize that there is a common thread to all the stuff we do whilst we kick around before we pass over? Of course it is, and this place makes you realize it. Sand dunes... More

We spent three days in this authentic place closed to M'hamid. Eventhough we did not get the opportunity to meet Nancy, we had a wonderful time with Idir and Ali who are very friendly and so authentic that it was already kind of sad leaving this place after three days. We hope to come back one day!

We have spent 3 days in Dar Sidi Bounou in August. I have been to more then 40 countries but the hospitality that we have received in Dar Sidi Bounou made me write my first TripAdvisor review. From the first moment we felt like arriving home from a long trip to mom and dad. Do you know the feeling, I'm... More

I stayed in April for 5 nights and it was utterly fabulous. Nancy and her wonderful team offer a unique experience ideal for those of us who need time away from busy day to day life. We were part of an organised trip of women so we had certain things organised but Dar Sidi has an amazing energy about it,... More
