One of the nicest places to go to in Morocco is Dakhla, have been going there for the past 8 years and it is a place that has tremendous potential for tourism, adventure sports etc. So in the past you had the Sahara Regency Hotel, you paid peanuts, you got what you paid for. But when you get your confirmation...

We checked in with intention of staying 4 nights at 140 euros per night. We expected much more than dusty floors, loose doors, dirty & undermaintained swiming pool and room walls, rusty chairs. Overall it was sad to see what no maintenance and total lack of management can do to an otherwise well situated one story hotel at the beach...

The hotel is located in a beautiful bay, with a private beach...the room I was in was large and quite lovely, with a big terrace,...pity the finish was so shoddy. The staff here are very friendly, and when they understand your French ( which is most of them) they are superb, especially the manager Mohamed Ali and the server Hassan....

CaLiPau (Carla Lisa Paula) hotel is very nice arabic style hotel at the city limit of Dakhla. We stayed there at our kitesurfing trips. We drive every day to Dakhla Bay for kiting (35km one way). There are 3 beautiful riad's (part of building with inner arcades surrounding small 'square'). Since there is no concrete on the floor but terracotta...

...at least, not for the money the owner wants you to pay! This hotel definitely lacks management and the owner doesn't care at all about customer satisfaction, treating clients as cash machines only. The great location and the nice staff trying their best to please the clients despite terrible conditions, help mitigate the overall bad impression this hotel leaves. I...

you arrive down a dirt track to what looks like a jail, you descend via some quite crude stairs and environs to a tiny reception. First impressions are not good - why am I coming here! Rooms though are spacious, sea view and balcony, bathrooms spacious and showers are great. Bar service is excellent with a good view as well....

I loved this place! It was so comfortable and a great point to explore the dunes and to see the Western Sahara. You need to hire a 4x4 to be transformed to another land. The staff were so nice and helpful, it was a nice surprise for being on the road for many days to get there from Marrakech. I...
