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

We stayed here a couple of nights with 2 kids and 2 adults in beautiful huts, charming company and good food. And went into the desert w Nancy's camels- wonderful place! Not so touristy, shabby or cheesy like some of the places we saw. Run with love and character by artist Nancy and her team.

I can safely join all the positive reviews people have written. Nancy was a fantastic host and very interesting to talk to. We could have stayed for weeks without getting bored, and the food was delicious!! Amazing atmosphere, both nature (obviously a lot of sand) and all the warm and welcoming staff. A big happy family! Dar Sidi Bounou is... More

This place was absolutely wonderful, the staff were so nice and the food was delicious. I asked for a vegan diet and everything was excellent. Nancy, the owner, is a really nice person and she is very friendly with her guests. The trip to the desert was fantastic, a unique experience. There were great musicians playing at night, not only...

Even before we arrived Nancy had provided us with great advice about the car journey from Marrakech and helped us plan a trip to the desert. Dar Sidi Bounou does feel as though it has been created out of the desert and is a great place to start a desert trip from. Yes, the rooms are simple and the water... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dar Sidi Bounou experience Living in the Sun and Sleeping under the Moon and Stars. Our Desert accommodation in a restored traditional daub house, serving delicious authentic beldi food, including vegetarian. Come to relax and enjoy music and tranquil ambiance in a palmerie garden on the edge of the Sahara dunes at Bounou, M’hamid. Take a desert excursion by camels (or 4x4) overnight or longer. The guides set up the tents, make the fire and cook − you just ride or walk beside the camels to a quiet place. Or you can take a walking tour of the ancient Berber Kasbah of Bounou and local villages. Gracious hospitality for adventurous individual travelers, families with children and groups of creative, artistic people. Relax under the palms, on the terraces, and on the dunes in the garden, or participate in the music, dance. In the winter evenings, sit around an inviting fire on the dunes and join in the drumming. Learn the local songs and dances, rhythms and techniques, bring your own instruments or use ours. With comfortable rooms in the house with terraces and en-suite bathrooms, N’wala huts and Berber tents on the dunes prices ranging from 20 Euros to 49 Euros prices are negotiable depending on how long you stay. Nancy and Daoud and the Staff at Dar Sidi Bounou invite you to be their guest and enjoy the magic of the Moroccan Sahara. ... more   less
