Disgusting !!! Worst experience of my life. Most dirty accommodation. .... cottage was filthy ... bed sheets were dirty looking ... the duvet was torn and had cotton spilling out, there was a tv which the attendant said would not work. Layers of dust and dirt. At one point there was no water in the filthy toilet and bathroom..... after complaining they offered to change the room at 10.30pm after being there for 10 hours .... which we did not bother to as we planned to leave first thing in the morning and did not want to repack and unpack.......the whole dessert experience was a lousy one .... it was bitterly cold and raining. The food was horrible unappitising vegetarian food ... cold and tasteless and we had to wait for 20 mins before they replenished the tea container at breakfast time and then served ready made tea which had more sugar than tea in paper cups of 50 ml capacity!!!! As I could not consume it I asked for black coffee with milk separately, they said they did not serve coffee!!!! The manager did not give a damn... Don't know how much this disgusting stay cost as it was a part of an entire package we paid for to visit 5 places in rajasthan in 3 star accommodation.... this one was more like 0 stars.... After all this, while leaving had to give a tip separately to various staff members who we did not want to tip but they kept following us and asking .... when we gave a small amount they made faces and passed comments. WORST STAY OF MY LIFE

I assume this is the same resort we visited as our experience does not match the other review comments. On a positive note, the manager Rasid Khan was wonderfully friendly and cheerful and paid close personal attention to our needs. Dinner was plentiful Rajistan fare and again we had attentive service from Rasid and his staff who seemed anxious to please us. The kids - especially our 7 y/o - thoroughly enjoyed the camel ride and thought the whole stay in the tent a big adventure. However we were the only guests. The camp generally was run down and amenities very basic. We had no shower, no toilet paper and no towels. Chai and milk was served from very grubby thermos flasks and we were unsure if the water offered would be ok to drink. The Sam sand dunes themselves were disappointingly strewn with rubbish and beseiged by hundreds of 'camps'. We would not repeat this visit.

We were a group of 20 people, went Jaisalmer for a business trip, during our Jaisalmer stay our one night stay was at Sam dunes and stay at this beautiful resort with camps. We reached Royal desert view Resort around 1900 hrs and witness the Sunset point from this beautiful camping site. Enjoyed the camel ride and amaze even in this scorching summers, nights were very pleasant at dunes. The camp manager has arrange a dinner at dunes with Sufi folk and cultural program and it was a life time experience. Love to visit this place again and again.

We visit to Royal Desert View Resort was of most amazing memories with out standing experiences. the camp is located very near from the dunes, hence is the best idea if one wants to enjoy the dunes. It is located even very near from the main road, very easy to navigate at night if you are driving yourself. The tents are clean and well maintained, The Camel Safari, Night Safari, Sand Dune open gypsy safari, Traditional dance & Performances by artist were fabulous. In just 2 day it self we lived the best of it...! Though it was chilling so travelers must carry their warmers and enough to protect against cold clothing's. The tents were pretty well decorated with colorful courtesans and warmers were effective. Food was finger licking, traditional Rajasthani food was good. Staff could be little more soft but still beyond the experiences.
