Hotel Al Baraka

Hotel in Dakhla

Located a short walk from good restaurants, the spacious rooms at the Al Baraka still retain that minty-fresh just-opened ambience. Big-screen TVs provide access to a planet's worth of satellite services, and a new licensed rooftop restaurant was in the works when we dropped by. Hotel manager Charlie definitely has his pulse on what's going on around town.

A few points off for cramped and awkwardly shaped bathrooms, but still a very good choice popular with business travellers.
