After a very tiring and long journey by coach and an hour on the camel, we were really looking forward to spend the night in this hotel in the village of Douz. (as part of our two day Sahara Explorer package.) The reception staff were very friendly and welcoming and they sent us to our room in no time. This is a beautiful hotel with authentic Tunisian flavour, in the heart of the Sahara desert. It is decorated in rustic warm colours to keep up with the colours of the desert.
The rooms are a bit on the small size compared to other 4* hotels, but it is all right for two people for one night. The en suite bathroom was of fair size, but the glasses in the bathroom were very dirty as if they had not been washed for a long time. The lounge, the bar area and the lobby have relaxing atmosphere where one can rest, relax and unwind with a few drinks from the bar. All areas including the rooms are kept very clean. The indoor Thermal spa pool is quite large and the best place to soak the tired body and relax the mind. It is too cold to swim in the outdoor pool in winter months.
The dinner buffet had a lot of selection and the food was lovely and hot. The breakfast buffet was not as good though. The cakes did not have any taste. They had too much salt and no sugar. Bread and rolls were ok.
