Just wanted to drop you a quick mail to say thanks for recommending and organising what was a great holiday in Dakhla for us. The Dakhla Club resort is fantastic with great food, accommodation, staff and kite instructors. We will most definitely be going back next spring and will come to you guys again to book. We are now very much looking forward to our Christmas break in Langebaan that we have booked through you.

Knowledgeable, expert advise from people that have actually been to the destination and kitesurf. Good to be able to chat through the pros & cons of the different options and accommodation on offer to suit our tastes, ability and budget.

Service rating : Great advice and on meeting our needs and particularly with regard to differentiating between the different resorts in the area we were going to. Fast, sorting out of details and everything worked to plan!
Product : Resort really nice, food excellent. Not much else to do beyond the kiting but we knew that before we went.

Guys working on the resort really friendly. Storage and rescue worked fine.

Only downside is that it's really busy on the water, such that we went when the morning session of teaching stopped for lunch .... just to get some space on the water.

Service rating : Planet Kitesurf was very organised and had addressed every detail!

I had attended a Foiling Clinic with Progression in Dakhla which was excellent! My progression on the foil during the course of the week was surprising and very rewarding - all because of the clinic! The clinic had also been arranged through Planet Kitesurf.
Product : Fantastic kiting location. Totally dedicated to the keen kiter!! Perfect for myself (but not necessarily the place for a kiter looking for other holiday activities!!)

Accommodation very nice (simple but clean and perfect for its purpose). Food excellent. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Rescue service really good (as long as one is kiting within the rescue zone!)

It would be even better if there was a direct flight! Changing in Casablanca makes for a long day of travelling - especially outbound where one arrives in the middle of the night.

It’s really just efficiency and attention to detail that I noticed could be improved.
The quotes sent by planet were wrong on a couple of occasions (wrong number of people and wrong amount e.g. £3000 pp should have been £1000 pp x3 persons)
Emails took quite a while to get a response and had to chase one time.
When I booked and asked for my friend (co-traveller) to be cc’d on the email, he wasn’t.
Love the website though!
Thanks

Service rating : Matt was very well informed on the phone to guide on alternatives.

Adjusted well to our adding in an extra traveller

Haven't been away yet, but I'm booked to hit Dakhla for 10 days in August!! The service I received from Matt Mockford was absolutely incredible!! Every question under the sun answered, the attention to detail when booking was top and really cool to speak to somebody so enthusiastic about the sport!! Absolutely buzzing to go!!

The experience was what was described. Was not 'over-sold'. The accommodation at Camp Dakhla was simple, but clean and friendly. The centre provided good kit and appropriate instruction. It was a great holiday - thanks!

It gets better at Dakhla every year, the beach boys from Senegal are the best!

The booking process with Planet Kitesurf was easy and straight forward. Accommodation at Dakhla Camp was to be expected for the location, however, no wind meant no kiteboarding lessons. Even if other kiteboarders were out, our centre seemed reluctant unless it was perfect conditions. I would have preferred a few more options next time, as the weather was not right for the holiday and so was somewhat a wasted trip.

Planet Kitesurf understand the needs of a kitesurfer. I have been to Camp Dakhla before, so knew not to expect too much, but was pleased to note there have been a couple of improvements, namely, there were decent towels in room, fresh orange juice at breakfast and newer bed linen. Dakhla is warm, sunny, shallow at high tide, and there is excellent rescue cover. There is always a language issue when having tuition overseas, but this is countered by the great conditions. I would recommend being fluent in French. Also even though group lessons are booked, on arrival you are pushed into having semi-private as they say they don't have enough people for a group, but I think it is more that they don't want to pay surplus instructors. Ultimately, semi-private is better if you are at a certain level as you get your own kit and don't need to share.

Camp Dakhla was basic and as described. Wifi can only be described as intermittent - I paid 60 Pounds for the 10 days and this wasn't worth it. The food was just fine - I had read some previous reviews that said it was poor but they are rubbish, it was good and I heard no adverse comments from others either. I could/would have done a VIP upgrade if it had been offered to me. The location is the best, it beats Ras Sudr, Sharm El Sheikh, Fuerte, Leucate etc. Dakhla is great for starters and pros alike. The guys who run the beach and kite centre are all friendly and good kiters. What was clear though was that any time one of them was kiting, everything else stopped so as to watch them or to shout Arabic across the water to each other, leaving the holidaymakers to launch and catch each other's kites. Not everyone was too impressed at this, they need to remember who is paying them to work (and play) in kite heaven. I had no training, but I know there was an issue with those that did over continuity of teachers and attentiveness and feedback, but all in all, despite the comments above (which are feedback rather than complaints), I would recommend the place to anyone.

We were both very busy with work in 2 different countries and our dates kept changing subtlety. The team at Planet Kitesurf was very patient, maintained a sense of humour and got us exactly the holiday we were looking for. We explained what we were looking for in terms of accommodation, and were told honestly which would suit us better, despite it clearly being a more difficult booking to make. The facilities at Ocean Vagabond were very well thought out - it was the little touches that made the difference. The staff were also incredibly friendly and welcoming. We were able to combine hire and lessons so that neither of us were bored or waiting on the other. Later in the week, we were also able to have a lesson together, despite being slightly different ability levels. The wind and wave conditions were perfect to practice new skills, and the camp was peaceful and relaxed. The instructors was excellent, as was the hire kit. I can't think of a single criticism. Thank you for helping us have such a great holiday!

We received good advice, a reasonable price and good communication from Planet Kitesurf. They had a good knowledge of the destination and understood exactly what we wanted from the holiday. The accommodation, food, kitesurfing and general ambience exceeded our expectations. We will return! Dakhla, Morocco, is perfect for beginners and more advanced riders. The kite centre provided excellent tuition, friendly staff and good advice. An excellent holiday!

Everyone at Planet Kitesurf was very knowledgeable about the location. They are also extremely quick at returning calls and answering any questions. I wanted a safe and windy destination. Dakhla, Morocco, was advised and was perfect. The lessons were very beneficial and the kitesurfing instructors spoke good English and were excellent. Also when there was no wind the lessons were postponed with the second lesson the same length despite having gone out. This should be expected but I've heard this isn't normally the case. Planet Kitesurf is an excellent company. I wouldn't even look for another company to book my next kitesurf holiday with. A really great holiday and much thanks to Matt and Marcus!

Dakhla overall is a great place and whilst we had little wind the second week the price doesn't match the service. Food is average and everything additional has a price tag on it. They even charge for WiFi and it barely works. I did really like the people but I am not sure I would go back especially having to overnight in Casablanca. The Camp Dakhla bungalows are very basic. We stayed for two weeks and had to request a room clean but they couldn't change sheets. Atlas hotel in Casablanca is a zoo - lack of services and operational knowledge and the food and beverages were very poor. The tuition at the kitesurfing centre was poor. I had a semi-private lesson and spent 95% of my time on my own. The one on one lesson was better but I had to fork about another 125 Euros.

The Dakhla Camp was very comfortable and the food and facilities were good. There were lots of different kite spots for different riding. I would definitely use Planet Kitesurf again.

The team at Planet Kitesurf were very helpful, very efficient and super flexible with changing the itineraries with us changing our minds frequently. We stayed in various accommodations throughout our trip and had different expectations for each part of the holiday and we were pleased that they were all above our expectations. Dakhla has perfect conditions which allowed us to progress at a decent rate. The kite school was very professional, making it very easy to arrange lessons and the rental of equipment. Great service overall! Tailormade for our needs and organised perfectly so we could relax immediately on arrival as we had nothing to arrange and could rest easy knowing every small detail was taken care of.

I received good advice from Planet Kitesurf and team about Dahkla and other options. Dakhla Camp was good but basic. The kitesurf centre had good storage and safety facilities. Great holiday.

Ocean Vagabond is fantastic. Great location, staff and other customers. We will be returning!
