What people are saying about Agafay Desert

Our night away at the Agafay desert was the most incredible experience. From start to finish, we were looked after incredibly well, driven to each location and always looked after by the most friendly hosts. We spent the afternoon at the most beautiful pool side villa, and enjoyed an amazing lunch. We were offered a quad bike tour around the desert in the afternoon as an add on which was so much fun. Then we were driven to the Luxury Original Agafay Camp where we met Hammad, our super host, and watched the sunset. Hammad provided us with a luxury suite for our night's stay which was beyond expectation - shower, fridge, king size bed, air con, beautifully decorated. The evening included a three course meal, live music and entertainment. In the morning, we watched the incredible sunrise and ate a delicious breakfast overlooking the desert. 10 out of 10 experience. We could not recommend more. Thank you to Hammad and your team for giving us an unforgettable 24 hours.

I cannot recommend them enough. The entertainment was amazing. The food was phenomenal. The couple who runs the event are the loveliest people. It was such an experience and I cannot recommend this more. The only advice for those who are going is at night is can get cold in the dessert. So wear layers and comfortable shoes. There is a hill with a view so sandals are not recommended. They do have blankets and a fire in the evening so it isn’t freezing but you want to be comfortable. I would return in a heartbeat even just for the best tagine I had the entire trip! (Sorry for not sending the review sooner- friends from Hong Kong, Scotland and England)

Te llevan en coche desde tu hotel, el trato de los taxistas que nos llevaron fue fabuloso. Una vez estás en la Jaima te traen algo pasta beber y te acercan a una montaña al lado para ver el atardecer. Una vez el sol ha caído puedes disfrutar de platos típicos marroquíes DELICIOSOS! La gente que nos atendió fue muy hospitalaria y amable sin olvidar que acabamos con una haka al rededor del fuego y bailando todos. Una experiencia muy divertida

Got picked up on the main road outside the hotel for the hour journey out of Marrakesh, then into a four wheel drive for the last ten minutes. Fantastic people greet and serve you all night (which lasted until 11pm) lovely food drink and entertainment. The sunset was superb over the desert. Would highly recommend

The experience in the desert was more than amazing! We had a bachelorette party and despite the organiser didn’t know he improvised during the evening and thanks to him and the environment we had so much fun! Really really suggested!
