I stayed at the hotel for two nights in the first week of November 2013, one night in the tent and the second night in the room. The stay was nice & pleasant, service was excellent and breakfast buffet was OK. Would take special mention of Mr. Bharat and Mr. Abhay - at front office (I hope I got the second name right), for their warm welcome and enabling a hassle free stay.
Would recommend some improvements.
1. The tents may be provided with brighter light in addition to the existing ones . Though the dim lights give a rustic feel, an additional brighter light will be useful in case one needs to read, search something etc.
2. Though the place is well secured, facility to secure the individual tents from inside and outside should be provided - double zippers with normal lock is an option.
Though the hotel is a bit away (about 4 kms) from the main city attractions, commute was not a problem as we had our own vehicle. Also, there are times (especially for people like us from the metros) when one feels great to be away from the buzz.
I would definitely recommend this for a short stay at Jaisalmer; rooms preferred over the tents.
