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!

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

After a long tour from Marrakech we have arrived at Dar Sidi and were warmly welcomed by Nancy and her team. The rooms are simple, but traditionally equipped. Water supply varied, but it was not unexpected since the Dar is closely located to the desert. Nancy has organised a desert trip on Dromedaries for us, which was fun and interesting... More

We just completed a quick overnight to Erg Chigaga with Dar Sidi Bounou and I can't say enough nice things. Our schedule was tight and time was short, but Nancy helped me immensely with the planning via email and offered all sorts of helpful advice to make a desert trip happen. We arrived midday and were graciously received by Nancy... More

very authentic place on the edge of the desert, the owner Nancy is very welcoming, friendly and entertaining, room is rather simple and there was often no water, in itself no problem, made experience only more authentic, but 150 euro for 1 night (including food) is a bit much maybe, location is wonderful at edge sand dunes, also very beautiful...

I've just got back from an amazing trip to Morocco. Staying at Dar Sidi Bounou was a privilege. After a very long and tiring journey from Marrakesh that meant we didn't arrive until after 10pm, the staff greeted us with warm enthusiasm and served up a lovely meal. It only got better from there. Being able to visit and stay... More

I came to Dar Sidi Bounou the second time, which was another excellent experience. The location is great because you have palms and dunes just behind the backyard. A perfect place to relax and recover. The food is very good too, and thanks to the hospitality of Dar Sidi Bounou, one feels welcome. Being a great place for creative purposes,... More

We stayed here for three days in early April and it wasn't long enough!! Dar Sidi Bounou is a beautiful and enchanting space and its easy to see why previous reviewers have continued to return here year after year. I could easily have spent weeks here myself - you very quickly figure out that you are somewhere a little bit... More

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.
