Beautiful pool and terrace. Very good food in the dining room and glorious views of the Erg Chebbi mountainous sand dunes at the edge of the Sahara. Like most of the hotels clustered around this location, they partner with tour companies to do camel caravan excursions into the desert and therefore there are lots of camels around the place. Air...

This hotel, like all other hotels around it, specialize in providing tourists with the desert experience they are looking for. You can either stay at the hotel or just book a desert camping trip on the camel via the hotel, I recommend the later. This hotel has such a beautiful swimming pool, which is something I never thought I would...

Third return to Yasmina. Enjoyed the ambience of the terrace , memorable dinner on the terrace with enjoyable authentic food. Staff lead by Aziz very helpful and cheerful. Laid back ambience soaking up the solitude of the dunes is worthwhile. Rooms large and comfortable. Recommend a visit to this desert Kasbah.

Booked through a tour company for desert camp on Dec 30 and a room in the hotel with what was supposed to be a "New Years Eve party at the desert hotel. There's live music, local musicians. A multi course lamb dinner is served. People from all over the world come together to join the party." Desert Camp: Long trip,...

Hi, I am 30+yr old female - stayed here for 1 night & the second night out in the desert camp (1hr camel ride into the dunes).

We may have had a bit of an outlier experience as we were a large group (40) and we were camping in the bedouin tents set up out back of the hotel. The staff I interacted with at dinner and breakfast were great. Didn't really interact with anyone else from the Hotel while I was there. The location in the...

This is a fortress hotel, from the very best of it's kind. Great staff, good food. Your best choice as the base for some desert ride either by 4x4 or on a camel :) You should not miss the sunrise from the terasse of the restaurant

We spent a day in the hotel as we booked a cameltrip and we slept at an oasis. The hotel was very nice, the staff was very helpful mostly the owner of the hotel. Highly recommend it to everyone who wants to enjoy the desert in Morocco for a good price!
