We were really excited for this part of our trip, to get out of the cities and into the middle of nowhere and see the milky way in all its glory. We did a 3 day tour with one night at Caravanserai. Our driver and trip over to the camel meeting point was excellent, but not so much for the actual desert experience. The communication with the camp was minimal, with me having to contact them several times to determine our pick up time, driver contact info etc. We arrived at the camel meeting point and our driver asked us for our payment on the spot, which had not been communicated to us prior to this. Again with the lack of communication. Our camel guide was a nice young guy who frequently stopped to take photos for us though his english was minimal. Our camels seemed well taken care of. The seats are uncomfortable, but camels are not comfortable, so no getting around that. They take you walking through the beautiful dunes which was ultimately the best part of the trip. On arrival we realized that they've actually walked you across the dunes, and you can now see a highway on the other side of dunes and you're close to rocky outcrops and, well, not desert. This is completely understandable considering you have to pipe in water and electricity and this is true for any camp you stay at, but still it takes away from the experience. We were greeted with mint tea and shown to our tents. Everything seems just a bit run down with thinning carpets etc, but the tents are pretty nice considering where you are. Beds are rock hard, not uncommon in Morocco, and there is no air movement. No vents or windows to open, probably to keep sand out, but no standing fans or anything to circulate air. We ended up soaking our shirts in water prior to going to bed to try keep cool. After sundown there's dinner. We had told the tour that we were vegetarian ahead of time. The standard bread, salads and vegetable tagine were brought to all the groups, all were fine. Then, all the other tables were brought chicken and fries, and we sat there. Thankfully we weren't starving, but if the response to a dietary restriction is omission instead of replacement, there's an issue. The other groups said the chicken was dry and that we hadn't missed anything. After dinner the camp tried to get people together for music and dancing around a fire, which was great, but lasted 30min at most. I think this was partially due to the group at the camp which wasn't super interested in joining. The next morning we had requested to take camels back to our meeting point, but most people took the suggested cars back. Our same guide took us back to our meeting point and again stopped to take photos which was nice. All in all, the lack of communication, mediocre food, and being able to see a highway and town lights from the camp took away from the experience quite a lot, and seems like way to much money for the all around experience, but, the fact that you get to go through the dunes and experience the night sky made up somewhat for the negatives.

We went in a group, its a good tent with private bathroom. The camel ride in was good, we managed to have a beautiful sunset. The dinner was okay. Staff friendly when we just arrived and during the dinner time. BUT ......a thin tent without heater during November with the temperature of about 6'C is not a joke. During check in with staff show us the tent, we saw a heater and immediately felt pleasant unfortunately, the heater was not on. We went to check with the staff how to on, but the staff say " is not working". As the cold was unbearable for the kids and even adult, we personally went to check with the staff again and requesting to any sort of heater, but its the same answer as " no heating" and only blanket. Its means, the heater was installed nicely in the room only and will not on at all. The cold might be subject to individual, but it is really unpleasant that we all have to wear multiple layer of clothes plus with at least 3-4 layers of blanket where the cold still obviously can felt for the whole night till morning. In addition, 1 of our tent power failure and we informed the staff, they do came over to check the power socket and then offer us to change to another room, they show us the room and leave us with the room key. The new tent has no hot water for shower and we got to run to our another couple's tent to shower despite the cold due to the sand during our sunset on dunes. Due to its late in the night, we did not request the staff to fix the hot water since we think that we can have it over another tent, but when we inform the staff the next morning and the staff said will "open" the hot water, but we still did not get the hot water in the end and got to use another tent's hot water for our morning washed.

This really was a night to remember. You embark to the camp by camel. It was dusk when we arrived. The staff were incredible, friendly and attentive. We chatted to the leader who was from desert people, his father berber, he was fascinating, and do much fun! No alcohol served but you can take your own. Dinner was lovely, many courses. The tents really were glamping. Good shower & proper toilet. Comfortable bed too. Could not fault this experience. We sat & looked at the stars after dinner. Just magical. I would highly recommend this it's worth the €100 euros.

The tent is spacious with private bathroom and hot water. Staffs there are super nice and friendly, and they have prepared everything, so we can just enjoy the desert. And we did enjoy the camp fire in the night with laughs. There is a USB charge in the room to recharge the battery.
