The important point about Kasbah Azalay Merzouga for us was that it is not in the town itself but right on the edge of the desert, awesome views of the dunes and ultra-quiet. We arrived early hungry and tired, we were greeted with breakfast which we were not entitled to and not charged for, amazing. Breakfasts and meals provided at... More

It wasn't too far off the beaten path... and so worth taking the few extra minutes to get there. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the food was first class, and the hospitality could not be beaten. We recommend staying for at least 3 nights, and including one night in the Berber tents that are about an hour out into... More

We arrived in the middle of a surprising sand storm, we could not even see the building! We knew we were going to be stranded for 24 for hours, the only guest! But our hosts were really charming, in a short time they got us a grilled chicken with french fries and salad, a lovely pot of tea and our... More

The kasbah is located just in front of the beuatiful Merzouga dunes. It is a small house (10 rooms) run by two brothers, friendly and efficient. They prepare traditional dinner and you can choose to spend a night in a tent. They organize as well tours with 4x4 or camels

We loved our days here, though it was incredibly hot in July, the pool helps. In the rooms it was fine, and in the evening the temperature cooled so we could enjoy the fabulous food on the terrace. Very friendly staff who were always about to helpfully assist in pretty much everything. Breakfast worth a special mention. The trip to... More

This place was excellent. Looking at the few bad reviews of this place I'm not sure what people were expecting. This is the edge of the Sahara desert for 25 euros a night (make sure to bring euros to pay). You are not staying at the Ritz in NYC and if you can't handle that, you should not come to... More

We arrived in Merzouga early morning, after an eight hours bus ride from Fes. Although we did not ask for someone to pick up both of us, a gentle man made the arrangements and soon, someone from the hotel, came along with a 4x4. Once at the hotel, Youssef gave us a warm welcome and made us feel really at... More

The staff try very hard indeed. They were most gracious. We had mint tea (accompanied by unpeeled peanuts and popcorn) twice with the owner in the first 5 hours after we checked in. The room had no amenities save a pump bottle of hand soap; eventually four tiny 1"x1/2"x1/8" bars. Our 'suite' had an extra bed, no sofa or chair,... More

Abdul and his brothers made us feel very welcome. Mint tea, a chat and an understanding of the Sahara and activities to do, created straightaway a "feel" for the place . Location is perfect with the view over the Dunes. We departed on camels from the kashbah and all was taken care of in a easy and natural way. It... More
