    Lovely hotel and host

    I was welcomed from the time i parked my car. Youssef is a great host. He welcomed me with delicious cookies and mint tea. he also turned on the heater in the room for me. i feel very warm from both the environment and also from Youssef. I love how Youssef decorates the rooms and public area. The breakfast is awesome as well. i highly recommend you to stay with Youssef.

    Une nuit de fraîcheur avant de gravir les dunes

    Excellent accueil par Youssef lui-même qui est aux petits soins et d’excellent conseil pour les activités à toutes heures. Il est le designer de ce petit hôtel où on se sent si bien. Il est aussi très bon cuistot et parle plusieurs langues! Et toujours avec sourire et humour.

    この施設の一番のお勧めは、なんと言ってもオーナーのユーセフさんのすばらしい”気配り”です。先に先に気を配って、客に不要な心配をさせません。 砂漠の近くにある伝統的な建物としては、清潔に保たれています。エアコンも効きました。

    Excelente experiencia para ir al desierto

    Excelente, el mejor lugar. Su dueño y las personas que trabajan con el son muy amables y acogedores. El lugar es limpio y muy bonito, la comida deliciosa y te asesoran muy bien para poder ir al desierto, para mi fue una experiencia increíble, estaba viajando sola y me orientaron muy bien. Lo recomiendo de todas maneras, al lugar y el tour al desierto, que es una experiencia única y que vale la pena hacer. Volvería sin dudarlo, muchas gracias por todo!!!!!
