AVOID IT!!!!!!!!!!
we arrived there reccomended from another hotel from jodhpur for visit the town and, of course, a safari.... as soon as we arrived during the check in the guy start to push us to buy a safari with him (we already know there was going to happend..) for the following day for a 2 days 1 night safari on NON TOURISTIC TOUR with the excuse that an english couple was already going so that we could enjoy them and have a discount on the price (that was not a problem anyway...)... he told us that they own the camels (that was true...) and that will be a good tour because we will be out of the touristic track and he told us a list of the places we should visit and he guarantee us that will be good food and everything will be cook with mineral water and that we will return for 4pm...
As soon as we wake up we realized that there was no english couple but just a swiss girl (FIRST LIE)
When we arrived to pick up the camels and the guides we realized that there was no program. was up to us where to go... like we should know where to go.... finally in 2 days we just visit a village and an empty lake (SECOND LIE)
The food was no cook with mineral water but with water pumped from bores... the second day the pumped brown muddy water and we had to ask them for please dont use it for make the chai tea (THIRD LIE)
The safari finished at 1pm (FOURTH LIE)
And then on the way back with the jeep come out that the girl with us was a "friend" of the owner of the camels, so we guess that instead had a discount we paid for her tour too (she never complaind about something) and that they gave away our room (that was already not special, with the same money you can find much better room) and instead they gave us a smelly small room without even a window (but the other girl could keep the same room) and they offer it us for free after our complain about the tour..... but we just take our baggages and change hotel....
