I am now addicted to this wonderful quirky place and feel like its more home than home. The welcome is warm and unconditional. The plumbing is still wonky, the bathroom doors don't lock, the stars shine at night and the sand gets everywhere. I got to lead a camel and cook a tagine The music is such a treat -... More

I travelled to Dar Sidi Bounou in October 2010, 2011 and again in 2012, initially for 4 nights, most recently for 10 nights. I would return there again with great pleasure. Daoud, Nancy and the DSB staff have worked hard to develop the original farmhouse and palmerie into a beautiful creative space, which evolves and improves year by year -... More

We (2 adults, 3 children - aged 7, 4 & 1) had a magical time at dar sidi boubou. We were immediately made to feel very welcome by Daould and Nancy, the children enjoyed drumming and bathing in a tub on the terrace. Our highlights were sleeping together on the roof and camping in the desert (the 2 older children... More

We spent two nights at Sidi Bounou. The place is warm and cozy. I love music, so had the chance to try the guimbri (gnawa acoustic bass) and play drums with the local musicians at night. Also loved talking with Nancy, the hostess, and her crew and about travels and life. Besides, we spent one night at the desert. Our... More

You have to see and hear and feel Darsidibounou. Sights and sounds and great hospitality. You can wander alone or you can join in the dance and music till the early hours. Berber tents and rugs take you to another world with handsome young men in turbans and gowns to help at every turn. One moment they are playing the... More

This review is long overdue. The grounds lie just at the foot of the Sahara. My partner and I stayed in one of the detached rooms which was beautifully hand built in the traditional Moroccan fashion. Nancy is the most accommodating hostess and her staff respect and adore her. We stayed three or four nights, but I did not want... More

Dar Sidi has the charm of a simple rustic place in a desert oasis, where Nancy and her team make you feel really welcome. The atmospere is informal and welcoming. It makes you easily mix with the team and other travelers. Nancy is your host, who sits with you at the table for eating, and makes great conversation. She is... More

What a wonderful find this was, we stayed for 2 nights as we were on a road trip around Morocco and were so glad we did as Nancy has created a real slice of heaven here :-) our welcome was one of huge smiles from all who met us as we drove in. It's such a beautiful place to stay,... More

We were only here for two days but felt at home immediately. The atmosphere of the place is very friendly and welcoming. Daoud is a great host and we were pleasantly suprised by the way Said took care of us! He even offered us a hot water bottle for the cold nights. The desert trip was amazing and one night... More

Dar Sidi Bounou has a serendipitous quality -- it's the sort of place you might stumble upon and then never leave. Part of the captivating charm lies in the location: a pretty main building with comfortable separate chalets and tents amid ever-encroaching sand and date palms. But even more wondrous are the residents: from the spectacular Nancy to the warm... More
