We arrived at Dar Ahlam only to find out that we were the only guests (summer is the off season) at the hotel and would be upgraded to a villa. The place is beyond beautiful and great attention has been given to every detail, both of the buildings and the grounds. However, it is the service that truly sets it apart from other 5 star hotels. The excellence starts at the top with general manager Fabian, whom I like to refer to as Willy Wonka, because he makes magic for grown ups happen and just when you think it cannot get any better...it does! We told him that the airconditioning wasn't working properly in our bedroom, on our way to dinner and, when we returned from dinner, we were shocked to see that they had moved all of the bedroom into the living room (where the air was blasting in a heavenly manner in the 120 degree heat!) and the living room furniture into the bedroom. That was just the first of many wonderful surprises, which peaked on our last night when we were driven 20 minutes into the desert and served dinner alone on top of a sand dune! Words cannot convey how amazing this was. There was a warm wind blowing, keeping us cool as we watched the sunset and then ate a delicious dinner by lantern light. Wow! We are looking forward to returning during the winter and checking out Dar Ahlam's tents in the Sahara.
