I went there in mid November 2013 for a week and during May 2014 for another week. I was / am a beginner. So I went here because there are IKO certified and because the spot is huge . Teachers are skilled kitesurfers indeed, and been teaching for a long time, but some are better than others at teaching / explaining . The spot is huge, you dont have to walk far to get to the water. Security is there in water during the day and teacher are alwaysto come to my rescue when i was stuck / drifting... with kite in water. Staff is friendly, food is excellent though i was sceptical. But everyday food was different. Bungalows : Tents are now gone. replaced with new bungalows constructed end of 2013. some are basic , some are more decorated ( more expensive), but hey you are in the desert, so you got a bed, hot water , a shower and a bassin : you re a king, don't complain! A nice SPA area for all afterkite much needed massage ( at extra cost of course). The site overall : well kept and well maintained, willingness to continuously improve the "resort" : more plants planted, a cable park, new kites...

I have been to Dakhla recently and stayed in Dakhla Attitude Hotel. Amazing how it has changed. Bungalows are brand new, the tents have the traditional vibe, food is excellent,mood night life and the kiting is just amazing. They have the best placement in the lagoon and the sport center is completely equipped. With new kite and windsurf material. I will not think is twice, if I go back I will stay there and make the best out of mu kiting!

    Sounds excellent Klaus, but I´m not surprised to find a positive review since you are the general manager.... Anyhow...I hoping to see you in June as I'm currently in the process of confirming our trip to Dakhla Attitude. Hope it's as great as you described!

    Hi Taco, I have not been Dakhla Attitude's manager for ever and as you I also came here before. All what I say is true, it's posted on FB with more then 10,000LIKES, on our web site and on TripAdvisor. All Dragon BG are completely new with crystal windows, 7 new vips, Windhunter camp, Bedouin tents... all the material in the sport center is BEST from 2012-2013, staff is highly motivated... anyway, it sounds like if you wish it would be the other way around or that I'm cheating because now I work here... try it out and then let everybody know what you think. Dakhla Attitude is the best hotel in Dakhla, at the best spot, the only IKO affiliated center and with all services anyone can ask for... It is great as I describe... actually, better! See you soon!

I went twice to Dakhla and stayed at Rio Aguilla the firs time and Dakhla attitude the second time. Both have their pros and cons. Dakhla Attitude: + lots of accomodation, tent or bungalows to accomodate all needs + a few bars to chill out, pool table and so on - the showers smell or rotten eggs - the tents are a bit far from the dinning area Rio Aguilla: + a lot smaller than Dakhla attitude + great view of the spot, the camp is placed a bit higher and is overlooking the lagoon + a bit more family like. Great if you're here to kite rather than going out - kite rescue is more or less inexistant - tents were a bit run-down when we went but they seem to have changed them since

Spot details

Dakhla offers an enormous blue lagoon that is simply amazing for kitesurfers, particularly for freeriding and training. You will find the flattest and most easygoing water conditions here and it is standing-depth at most places. As the lagoon is 50 kilometres long, there is more than enough room for everybody. Also if you want to do a downwinder, this is the best place! There are several kitesurfing centres that provide lessons, rentals, repairs and rescue services and there are some amazing surf spots all over the Atlantic coast. If there's no wind Dakhla Attitude Hotel offers wake boarding, SUPs, kayaks, surf trips. The visit to the thermal source of Asnaa is a must as also the downwind they organize to the Dune Blanche and to Dakhla Town. DAKHLA Attitude has the only affiliated IKO center that works with Best kiteboarding equipment and offers lessons and rental.
