Great hotel in the desert. Good pool, excellent dinner under the stars. Exceptional breakfast box for take away. Disadvantages: very early check out time (10 am). Very short lunch menu. No access to the national park before sunrise and you can’t return to the hotel from dunes after sunset.

An oasis of calm. Good service from staff and helpful advice from their in house guide on getting the best out of our stay. Only downside is the buffet rather than a la carte but we did get to see a Jackal in the garden from the dinner table
