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.🤩🤩

A couple and a toddler, spent two nights in our own tent sheltered from wind by a surrounding wall. Showers were good, common area was nice, offering free tea and the most incredible view one could ask for. Great star lookout, beautiful spot to watch the sunrise. Nearby many restaurants, attractions and gas stations. Our intention was to use the camping grounds (low budget) assuming that should satisfy our needs. It was impossible to set up a tent, let alone sleep in one due to the strong winds. Even on a day not considered especially windy the situation forced us to upgrade and pay extra for the shelter. We feel that they should have warned us upon booking that camping with your own tent is an impossibility. Also, no animals allowed.

This was a perfect place to stay to enjoy the beauty of the Ramon Crater. The buildings were comfortable and well suited to the area. And the location couldn't be better. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommend a stay here.

We arrived with a party of about 20 post-wedding and pre-birthday so we had a lot to celebrate. The staff was incredibly friendly, hospitable and warm. Dinner was delicious and we had as many helpings as we could stomach. Spent the evening with our whole group huddled around the fire. We all slept in the B tent, made it up to see the sunrise, and enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the sun-soaked dining area the following morning.
