We stayed at Ammarin for one night as part of a Desert Eco Tour group. We arrived at the camp and were met by a burning fire and hot tea available, a favorable start to our stay! It was nice to relax by the fire and meet the other people who were also staying (in total there were 9 of us staying at the camp that evening). The camp has hot/cold running water for showers (greatly needed after a day touring Petra). Yes, bring your own towels and shampoo, etc. Dinner was delicious and relaxing. After more tea by the fire, we decided to get to sleep early. The tents are basic, just a mat-like rug on the ground with mattresses and pillows. Yes, the mattresses are old and lumpy, the pillow has the softness of a concrete cinder block. None of that matters to me, it's the experience that counts here. It's not a luxury hotel by any stretch, but sleeping out in the desert, with the stars on display and the silence of the night... that is what you are getting. Perhaps it's not for everyone, but we enjoyed it immensely and wouldn't change anything about it. And where else can you wake up to a scorpion right outside your door? LOL.
