Fair 4.0
No welcome
First of all, I wrote in to inquire about 4*4 drive prior to stay and a reply came with rates and I replied if one need to book in advance and there was no reply till the day I checked in. In the booking confirmation, it did state there is no receptionist so on the day of check in there was no one. Then, someone came to counter and ask for name etc. I showed the booking. NO registration done and I was asked "room, breakfast, go?" and was given key and taken to tent. There was no welcoming feeling nor info regarding the camp - what is there and what to do. There was no drinking water in the tent. Later, I came out and noted nothing around the area. Groups of tourists arrived and the staff were busy welcoming them. Next morning, I had my breakfast and left. They say there is WiFi but there was no WiFi in the tent and only after midnight did I receive any WiFi signal. The tent was clean and room comfortable but only with a dingy light - one cannot read properly inside the room. Next morning handed over the key and checked out. Disappointing stay.

Very good 8.0
Beautiful stay in Bedouin tents under the stars
The decor was very nice and we felt like we had an authentic Bedouin experience. Sitting at the fireplace in the evening and drinking tea in the calm desert is very soothing. Food was very good, good variety of dishes. We found it a very good value for our money. The accommodations are very conformable.
