Overall a very good experience for those who visit for enjoying the desert and related activities! Pros: 1. The camp representatives were waiting at the Shell petrol pump for the arrival of guests at 2.30p.m. 2. We were guided to the camp site in a convoy. (4x4 will be arranged for those who do not have one.) 3. Snacks, tea/coffee/water...

We stayed one night in that hotel. It's expensive for what you get, but we decided to stay because we never had the experience of being over night in a sand desert. The rooms are simple but the clean. The best thing is the staff. All of them are very friendly, helpful and always happy. It makes you feel safe...

It is a wonderful camp with good customer care. The food is excellent and the houses are comfortable. The only problem was there was no air conditioner. The open Majlis was really good and the night there was fantastic. They full were singing traditional songs and dancing. We can even put songs. There was a lot of fruits and beverages....

We reached the camp by 3.00 p.m. There was no electricity and we were told that that the generator will be switched on at 5.30 p.m and will be on till 9.00 a.m. the next morning. Tea, coffee, kawa(?) with dates, fruits etc. were available. The rooms were, as others have written, very basic. Just the bedding! Not even towels...

We went for dune bashing and this place was a good spot to keep things and crash after an eventful and tiring day. Do not expect a lot from here. The food is pretty basic and the rooms and facilities are basic as well. I'd put it in a way, where a person just needs to sleep after dune bashing...

Place is awesome and in the lap of magnificent golden sand dunes. Safari on sand dunes was a lifetime experience in evening. Resort is average. Food is far below average. Can go if no other better options exist. The desert scooter ride was excellent and must be taken

I don't know what is people's expectation. This place is in the middle of Empty Quarter. One of a few places within miles that serve food and drink, provide a room and bed, has flush toilet and a shower! So, let's take what they have, enjoy the desert experience.

the only good thing about this camp is that its easily approachable and even a sedan can reach there. However, the other side of the same coin is that its surroundings are always crowded. Go there only if you can manage to sleep on concrete platforms and using not-so-clean toilets. on the positive side, the location of the camp is...

It is a wonderful drive over wahiba even if only 20kms with no man in sight. Its tricky at night as ther is no sign board or a person to ask for location, except you find the 10 lane wide dune track to no where. located at the second telecomunication tower, kep to your left on the track not to...

Its a nice place in the middle of the desert . The nights are spectacular if you go on a full moon night . The accommodation is very basic . But clean sheets and a basic toilet .Check out the quad bikes for rent at the camp ,Don't miss the camp fire .

“Do not take the 1st cluster at the entrance, they are tiny rooms for the cost. I suggest not to take shared bathroom either. The 1st cluster was ok for the location opening to the vast desert and away from music and dance at night if you prefer.”
  • Basic facility :(
  • Very small room
  • Solid cement cot and bed.
  • Dune bashing next door & children play area
  • In front of rooms-1st cluster
  • Small crowded design
