We were really blown away with the "staff" and the entire experience of staying in the desert. We spent all night joking around with the staff and they always understood our jokes - or at least pretended to! ;) Thank you everyone for an unforgettable experience. 100% recommend!

Achmed is one of the most kind, warm and honest people we've met during our stay in Morocco. Although the room was really hot and the pillows were quite hard (but that's about everywhere around that area) - Achmed totally made up for it by being a true host; he made a great meal and breakfast, was interested in every...

This felt really well organized. The tents and all the carpets were clean and welcoming. This was a great way to get closer to one important dimension of life in Morocco. Our talks with the organizer (I forget his name) were very helpful.
