We stayed at this hotel as part of an Experience It tour a couple of years ago. We didn't actually stay in the hotel so can't comment on that, but the night out in the desert was just incredible. The food was wonderful, and there are even cats out in the desert tents. The only bad thing was that it was cold. I ended up sticking my head under the covers til I couldn't breathe, then letting my face out, where the air was so cold it kept me awake. But the place itself is beyond description-imagine having a shower out in the desert! We didn't, because it was too cold to be getting out of a hot shower, but the tents themselves are just incredible, right out of arabian nights.
At night we were given a very wonderful meal, some of which went to the cats!:) Then the guys set up a fire, and played music for an hour or so, which was very entertaining. A little while later we could hear them playing to another tenting group. The only complaint I can think of is that I would have liked to have gone a little further into the desert. You are in the dunes, but you can still see the hotel behind you, which took away a little of the magic. But maybe thats a bad idea, I don't know. I thought the desert would be the highlight of our trip, but Morocco is so amazing that in the end, the desert is fairly far down the list. However, as they say, its something you've got to do once in your life.
Nothing bad can be said about the service or anything. The guys escorting us out on the camels to see the desert sunset were very friendly, even lent me a scarf. They are quick though! The child in me came out when we were on the dunes and as we posed for a picture on a sand dune, I tried to trip him, but ended up flat on my back! He apologized, but I made sure everybody around knew what had happened. Good to see that people are so similar all over the world! I'll provide a picture so you can see the evidence.
If you are going to Morocco, you definitely want to 'experience it'.
