Ocean Vagabond is a windsurfer and kitesurfer's dream! The accommodations were very clean, the food (which is included in your room cost) is fantastic and the overall service at the resort was incredible. I am a windsurfer, but I wanted to try kitesurfing. This was the place to do it! The conditions were consistent, strong wind, and the way that... More

Ocean Vagabond is on the whole an "ok" accomodation. The resort as it self has (compared to all other resorts) the best location in Dakhla Lagoon. The stuff respectively the instructors at ION Kiteschool are just adorable, patient and always very cheerful. But unfortunately the whole establishment is grubby, especially in the view of food (we all had gastrointestinal infection... More

Just to say this is my 4th visit to Ocean Vagabond in 2 years. Great atmosphere, great accommodation, and great location! Food is outstanding. A generous buffet, with a sort of French/Maroccan flavour. Great salads for the vegetarians, and lots of fish, chicken, beef etc for the carnivores. I have to say it's great to find a place where both... More

We stayed in bungalow 2 with integral bathroom with an great view of the lagoon and v close to the bar and restaurant. Stripped out beach style perfect for the location with comfy bed and clean sheets and towels. Slow draining sand filled shower drain is always a problem in a beach bungalow.

As regards the kitesurfing, the site is good, a large area of tidal sand flats which is great for learning if the tide is in, no problems with sharp shells which we had on the other side of the bay. A steady wind considering it came off the land, although much better the higher the kite was (lower than "10-2"... More

This hotel is so well designed, so unostentatious, so welcoming. I went on my own for 2 weeks, which is pretty risky as it is small, and isolated. But I had one of the best holidays of my life. Despite obviously difficult supply lines so far from anywhere, the food was delicious, and the service excellent and friendly. In September,... More

The place was great, really clean, staff were helpful and friendly. The instructors at the Mistral kitesurfing place were excellent. They had a large stock of recent north equipment, loads of boards and kites with pretty much everything in the North range available to use.
