This was sooo good. Hospitality was meaningful. Of course we all come for the food. I have never eaten so much that was so good. This is the best deal in the dessert if you can get in. A true family type experience. Simple and kind with a lot of giving.
The staff met us at the visitor center, and we followed them to the camp in our rental car. They took us on a 4 hour 4-wheel drive tour of the desert. After that, we returned to the camp for dinner and a campfire and then a moonlit ride in the desert. We stayed the night, followed by breakfast. All of that for a very inexpensive price. The staff were very accommodating, hospitable, and welcoming. The owner, Talat, went out of his way to make sure we had a great and memorable stay. The only remotely negative things I could say about our stay were that, even with a thick blanket and Bedouin robe, it was still cold in our tent. Either there was no hot water or it was not working while we were there. The toilet paper and paper towels ran out, but possibly we could have gotten more if we had asked.…
This is the second time we've stayed (with the family, including 3 young kids) at a Wadi Rum desert camp, and this one definitely compared very favorably to the previous one. You have to know what you're getting into in the first place of course -- you shouldn't expect a resort-quality hotel... But the rooms are very nice and clean, and the showers and lavatories (common) are also quite reasonable. What's more, they even have free WiFi! Dinner was interesting: they began by digging up food that had been cooking in an underground compartment during the day, which was then presented in buffet style. The food was quite tasty, as was the breakfast we were served the next morning. All in all, we were quite pleased with this desert camp experience.
I was told about that camp by a friend of mine. It's been an outstanding experience and if I'd ever come back to Jordan I'll sure come back there. Location is easy to achieve by car (except for crazy drivers, but that's Jordan). We spent our night in a beduine clean, cool and characteristic tent. We got dinner and breakfast included, both was very good (not exceptional, but they're not MasterChefs though). We also joined the Jeep tour and that's been amazing, absolutely a to-do thing. Staff was kind, toilets clean, atmosphere warm. We really enjoyed that place. Thanks again beduine friends.
My girlfriend and I spent there two beautiful night. See the sunrise, have a beautiful jeep trip in the Wadi Rum, see the sunset and after that the stars. What else?? The food was really amazing, the guide took us in the desert for four ours and show us lots of particular place in the Wadi Rum. The toilets were very clean anche all the stuff was kind. All the tents were closed with keys and were very clean as well.
