The riad is located at the beginning of the sandy desert towards Algeria, which is very evocative. It is even too much luxurious for my standards, since I prefer more modest and authentic places. However, it is beautiful, there is heating in the rooms, hot water (but scarce) and a swimming pool, that we didn't use because it was winter... More

We travel in a numerous group of friends and families with childrens with Totmarroc. Stay here about 4 days, no time to get bored on this beautiful oasis in middle of the desert and near to the big Merzouga dunes: a lot of activities (4x4, quads, rutes on desert, dromedaries, traditional markets, khaima, swimming pool, mineral and fossils fields...), a...

My friends and I (three girlfriends) had an amazing tour. We were picked up in Marrakech in a 4x4 and then drove to Merzouga. We stopped at many sights along the way - N'kob, Ouarzazate, Ait-ben-haddou, Dades Gorges, and drove through the Atlas Mountains. When we arrived at Riad Ali, it was like something out of a dream - serenity... More

I had such a wonderful visit here that my planned 2 day visit turned into 5 days. Ali his wife Mounia are welcoming and lovely, and their staff is very attentive and accommodating -- I arrived at 0530 on the overnight bus, and they were there to pick me up, watch the sunrise from the rooftop terrace with tea, then...

One of the best trips of my life. I've been to many different countries but not many like Morocco. Its culture is very different to any I have experienced before. Its architecture is unusual and mystic and its people are kind and endearing. If you have traveled to somewhere similar such as Thailand etc. you will know a similar situation... More

We found the Riad Ali a great base to experience the Sahara Desert. The food was great and all the staff assisted in making our trip so enjoyable. We did have an issue with our room at first but as soon as we mentioned this to the staff it was fixed. We we amazed at the quick response based in... More

This Riad is 5+. The owners are very attentive. The rooms are basic but very comfortable. The bathrooms are good size (compared to other riads). Riad Ali has probably the most priviliged location in Merzouga. You step out the door and you are walking in sand. The views from the terrasse are spectacular. The food is basic marrocon, but very...

This is a really nice place to stay when visiting Merzouga due to its location right by the dunes and the warm hospitality of the staff. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed with nice large bathrooms (with ample hot water) and just a few steps away from the pool. There are many comfortable places to just hang out, whether around the... More

Great place. It is located right by the dunes, with a high roofdeck where you can take tea and breakfast in nice weather and get a great view of the dunes. Nice courtyard pool too -- it was far too cold to swim but it would be great in warmer weather. The rooms were fairly big, with their own heaters,... More
