Staying in Desert

I am interviewing tour companies for a private tour to Morocco. One of the agents is really discouraging staying in a test in the Sahara. This individual says that the lodging and food is not great and that people are often cold and get sick from the food. What does the group think?

Thousands of happy tourists spend time in the desert every year, I don't think they would continue to do so if there were too many problems.

The desert is usually cold at night.

In January / February we are talking usually around 3 to 4 Deg C.

So, yes, it does get very cold.

Some people go unprepared for this and probably do get ill from the cold.

Never heard of anyone getting ill from food in the desert, when they wash their hands prior to eating.
