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 a real host! The food is great, It is a place to relax: sit in the shade and read, or make excursions from. The team can arrange any excursion you want. People like Idir and Said learn you about the surroundings and the desert life.
Do not expect high standards of a luxury hotel. It is in fact a simple desert lodge in a rough climate. During our stay, there was a lot of wind during two days. It means the dusts gets anywhere, so you have to close to shutters of the room. We forgot that initially. But then you know you live in the desert, and the welcoming company and location more than compensate.
