This hotel is overpriced for its room, location,service and breakfast. The room was basic, not much furnitures for unpacking luggages and placing clothes and stuff, it was just the bed and a small table. There was no AC just a fan on the ceiling and windows at room and toilet. The bathroom was satisfactory with hot water. If you needed...

Spending the entire night being dive bombed by mosquitoes isn't much fun. It isn't possible to shut the window in the bathroom and the fan isn't strong enough to keep them away. Next day's travel to the islands was ruined as we were so exhausted. Shame for one of the more expensive places in town. Food at the restaurant is...

The hotel has a nice pool and a good view on the dunes. The room we got was ok (lot of mosquitos be warned) we choose the one without AC but in the mid of summer that can be too hot. The price is quite high but the location is very good. For the activities mind that the hotel prices...

We slept here for one night. The room was a tad small for the price but it was clean. The staff were super friendly. The hotel restaurant is AWESOME!!!!!! I recommend having at least one meal here. There is an outdoor pool with chairs. Nice place to relax in the midst of the humongous dunes. It is a surreal and...

Smalll basic hotel room with poor quality amenities (soap etc), poor breakfast offerings in quantity and selections, lots of mosquitoes. We did not know that the staff left the windows to the bathroom open so lots of mosquitoes were in the room that we did not know. We woke up with so many mosquito bites- Hopefully these mosquitoes are not...

This is a nice hotel backing onto a spectacular mountain of sand (fun, tiring climb). They don't serve alcohol at the bar at night, specifically to ensure quiet for their guests. Unfortunately, that doesn't stop guests from going out and returning very late and very drunk. Hence our recommendation to get a room in the back near the dunes. Otherwise,...

The rooms are very basic and very small. I have paid a lot less on my trip and stayed in rooms a lot bigger and much nicer than this. The pool and bar area are nice. Although the food is not great. The rooms are extremely hot and full of mosquitos. I tried to change rooms in the middle of...

We stayed a night while visiting the oasis and sand boarding. The sand buggy ride was a blast, be sure to go if you can. The hotel was clean and comfortable if a bit basic. There juxtaposition of the pool and the sand dunes was great. Breakfast was good too - the fresh juice was excellent.

The hotel is average at best. There were issues with water supply. There are too many mosquitos in the room. No hair dryer provided. The restaurant is ok. The breakfast is fine. The staff are pretty friendly.

I stayed here for a second time and it's worth it. It's lovely. Clean rooms, well decorated, comfortable beds, nice view . The pool is nice and they have a ping pong table. Although years ago the food from the hotel's restaurant was amazing, this time the food wasn't good.
