Well, for the first visit into a desert, it was amazing! Knowing what to expect, Camp Bait Ali was nice.
There are several kinds of accommodation there, starting from tents and till at Deluxe chalet (we didn't see those). We had a small chalet. Note that we visited the camp at 30.12.2017 till 01.01.2018. on the nights, outside temperature dropped to about 2 Celsius and small chalet have no heating, so we suffered a little because of the cold. The chalet itself its a small building like 2,5 x 4 metres, including a small bathroom with WC and shower on the back (we had hot water all the time), two separate beds and a hanger on the wall. Around the door, you can see the light... no matter where it comes from (inside or outside :) ). So, if you need comfortable accommodation, you better choose a deluxe chalet, especially in hot and cold periods, they have air condition.
But, if you want to feel closer what life into the desert is, take a tent or a small chalet. They are not cosy, but if is that what you search for, you are in the wrong place. Life in desert is rough even when weather is not hot.
The food is not very diversified, but enough to have what to eat, at breakfast or diner.
They have limited choices on alcohol drinks (2 kinds of beer, one red and one white wine).
There is a pool on the camp, with a bar and sunbeds area. We didin't use it since our best weather was 15C.
At the entrance of Bait Ali you can find easily bedouins with jeeps to rent for a short or long ride through the desert. You must try (ask for the best choice at the reception)!
The camp can provide transportation from the Israeli border ( Aqaba is one hour away) or to Petra (2 hours distance), for a fee.
Maybe Bait Ali its not the best choice, since there are many camps around there, but for sure it is a decent one. We felt good, safe and welcomed there!
