I still recommend basic camping if you really want to experience the desert, but Qasr Al Sarab is a nice luxurious romantic getaway for a special occasion. The setting is lovely, the villas are very well designed and decorated...

I went with my wife and two draughts aged 5 and 2 and had a super weekend. All staff was smiling and all spoke English. When the buffet didn't have the shrimps my daughter was looking for the chef made them specially for her. The resort has a fantastic location and all around excellent service.
