We spent another memorable week staying at Dar Sidi and this time taking in the Taragalte Music festival. As always the staff at DSB looked after us like family and as soon as you arrive you feel the cares of the world falling away. As well as visiting the festival, which was incredible, we drummed, danced, did some healing and... More

We opted to book in advance here as we thought it could be a bit transient and soulless down in the desert. Arrived with two touring bikes in the boot of a grand taxi to be greeted by Nancy and Daouud, with an almost protective embrace; truly welcome after after several days cycling to Zagora from M'kech. Unfortunately didnt get... More

Everyone at DSB will do their very best to make your stay as good as it can be. Everything is very clean and tidy and the meals are all home cooked and delicious. Although it's located in the desert and water is not available some of the time, it was always possible to get a hot shower at some time... More

Nancy and her team at DSB are truely fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. So many helpful emails before we arrived, a team waiting on the road to pick us up from the bus and a full course meal at 10pm at night - so generous and kind. Before you rush to book this place - it is not a... More

Many thanks to Gemma, and all the others who have reviewed Dar Sidi Bounou on tripadvisor, for their kind appreciation of our simple facilities and what we can provide ... and also for their patient tolerance of our shortcomings, particularly with regard to the current water shortage. It is a great pleasure, and a privilege for me, to have the... More

We spent two nights at Dar Sidi Bounou - a fleeting visit during our week's holiday based in Marrakech - and are already planning our return. We loved the buzz of Marrakech, the longing winding drive down through the breath taking Atlas Mountains, and of course, first experiencing the tranquility of the desert dunes is truly magical, but the highlight...

Dar Sidi Bounou may not be for everyone, but for my friend, Lynn, and me, it was just perfect. It was the least luxurious place we stayed in Morocco, with the fewest creature comforts - but thanks to Nancy and her extraordinary friends and staff, it was also the warmest, most welcoming, most authentic. It's a place where you're made... More

I think you will either love it or hate it although I have to admit to being somewhere in the middle. I am sure my overall view is coloured by the weather we experienced while we were here. After a long drive we arrived to no water. It was windy, sand blowing everywhere and hot. No shower and you couldn't... More

Although this Senior Reviewer found this ... "a hard review to write"... she was not too slow in writing it. She drove out, leaving Dar Sid Bounou after 3 days, on May the 31st... and the review appeared on May 31st... so possibly the Reviewer wrote it when she first arrived... rather than after she had departed. i always thought...

Coming to Dar Sidi Bounou regularly now as it such a wonderfully peaceful place with friendly people, excellent food and just the right 'desert chill'. It is always a pleasure to come back and enjoy the Berber hospitality, dance around the campfire, drum in sunrise and sunset and escape the world for a while.

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
