“My second stay in the desert - and returning soon!”
Reviewed February 8, 2016
This is an excellent place to chill out. Dar Sidi Bounou offers authentic southern Moroccan hospitality. Accommodation is in rooms in the main house, in adobe chalets, or in tents by the dunes. Nancy and Daoud are excellent hosts, and Idir, Mohamed and all the other staff are wonderful. The food - I recommend full board - is a wonderful Moroccan experience. You will enjoy home-cooked dishes not found in restaurants, and traditional live music in the evenings. Trips into the desert, camel rides, visits to the old Ksar Bounou nearby, and M'hamid's weekly market are all easily arranged. But best of all is the relaxing ambience. Enjoy meeting other interesting travellers or just contemplating the dunes and the desert sky at night. This is not a luxury resort, but a comfortable family experience on the edge of the desert. Arrive as a guest and leave as a friend.
