A wonderful hotel with the most convenient location possible just in front of the lagoon. The views over the sea are very serene and relaxing. The reception staff was very helpful and efficient. We will be back in this wonderful place this summer. Excellent fresh local oysters.

This hotel is an unexpected delight, situated directly on the lagoon with terrace views to both north and south. You enter at road level and descend one floor to reception and one level of bedrooms and a further level to the terrace overlooking the lagoon. The staff at reception are efficient, friendly and helpful , Moroccan and French are the... More

Lovely hotel where we spent a week end with friends. The hotel,is very well situated in the heart of Dakhla. The staff is really friendly and will,do anything to please you and to organize excursions in the desert. They even organized a bivouac for us on the other side of the bay in a spot called Puerto Rico. We had... More

We liked this hotel a lot - it had a good mix of traditional Moroccan and Saharan culture with modern conveniences like free WiFi that was functional most of the time. Breakfast was adequate, especially the Moroccan pancakes and omelettes cooked to your liking. Thought the room decor was spot on. A good stay, though pricey for Morocco.

The Bab Al Bahar Hotel in Dakhla is a nice hotel with nearly all you need. When we stayed there, they build a new platform to fix your zodiac. Good for the next visitors, bad for us because they are working till 12.00 o'clock in the night. The rooms are clean and big. They have TV and Internet free.

We stayed here for one night on our way to the kite spot further north. We had a confirmed reservation, but on arrival we were informed there was no record of us and hotel was fully booked... bit of a problem. They were very busy checkin in people and asked us to wait. The manager was very friendly and accommodating... More

Probably one of the best hotels in Dakhla. Rather expensive. The spa isn't realy a spa but the massage was good. Staff was friendly. Rooms were big and clean, great view over the ocean. They didn't want to except credit cards if you only stay for one night.

TL;DR: My only reason to stay here again would be a gun pointed at my head. The good: * the place is kept really clean The bad (based on my experience in room 12): * their "sea view" rooms (not the "superior sea view"-rooms) are on ground floor with seating arrangements between the windows and the sea - that's right,...
