I highly recommend to stay at this place. the view is just amazing and the owners are very very friendly and you feel at home when you are there. We stayed with our handicapped teenager who is in a wheelchair. the desert shade has an adapted place for him and we were received with a lot of hospitality and friendship. it was really one of our best if not the best experience during our trip in Israel.

We had a wonderful stay at Desert Shade. The location over looking the crater is excellent, the sunrise is incredible. The hosts were very friendly and we loved the community feel of the entire place. Mizpe Ramon was the best part of our trip to Israel. Thank you!

We went with friends. We cocked on the fire with a pot we brought. You have a kitchen to cut and wash the dishes. The staff was kind, nice and helpful. We slept in one of the cabins, it was small but you didn't need more than that.

Accidentally found this place online when I was looking for a place to see the meteor shower. It has a great location which is easy to find. And it just stands next to the sculpture park. I love to sneak into the park at night to feel the wind in desert, feel nowhere and enjoy the starry sky by myself. It is a healing place to clam down my mind and help me relax. Besides, it is only ten minutes walk to go to visitor center and around 20min walk to Mount Carmel. Since I was volunteering there, the most unforgettable part for me is the time spent with the crew together. Everyone was so nice and passionate. We made the supper and breakfast for the guests all by ourselves, even the hummus was homemade. I gave you the promise, it was the best. In a word, if you plan to go to Mitzpe Ramon, Desert Shade definitely is a good choice for you to stay.🤩🤩
