Very nice facilities at the hostel, a nice pool area and very nice staff. We spent the whole afternoon there waiting for the camel trip to start. You can relax comfortably by the pool. The trip itself was very nice too. We sat around the fire while the berbers played the drums and sang. Afterwards the showed us how to do it. To end it all we talked with them until very late by the fire. The breakfast the next day was really nice.

Great experience from the beggining to the end. Definetely worth its value. People in hotel were very nice, kids were swimming in pool while waiting for the experience, breakfast the next morning was delicious, kids enjoyed the camel ride and we enjoyed the sunset and sunrise. Camp is well equiped with bathroom and dinning facilities. Dinner was good and there was plenty of food so we were not hungry.

It was a exceptional experience. We walked trough the desert on a camel and watched the beautiful sunset. After that we walked towards our camp, where everyone has its own little tiny house. It was very comfortable and therefore the night was not as cold as we expected. We enjoyed a three-course menu, it was delicious. In the next morning, we started our tour back to the starting point and watched the sunrise. We can really recommend the tour.
