First of all this place is not for everybody. If you like comfort luxury boring hotels go somewhere else. If however you are ready to have a little bit less comfort for an authentic experience in return, this is a wonderful unique place. We booked with Ahmed a night in the desert, which itself was very nice, and then we... More

I've stayed at the hotel and took excursions with Ahmed himself and his brother to the nearby desert (trekking, 4*4, camels, meditation in the desert). Two... More

We were very lucky to experienced an amazing tour in merzouga, not only to see a magical place like sahara desert but to meet AHMED and his family who took care of our group for 3 days. We were treated like a part of their family and not a guest... their hospitality and kindness is unbelievable.. no words can described... More

We really appreciated how Ahmed welcomed us into his family and felt priviliged to share a bit of their life. It was great to be able to sit at their table for a chat and share a beautiful couscous. The camp in the desert accessed at dusk by camels is well located and setup. We ended up sleeping under the... More

This was my very first experience in the desert, and luckily for me, my friend has found this little place and I have immediately fallen in love. Mr Ahmed is so dedicated to the well being of his guest, and his family is so welcoming and endearing. We stayed with them for two days and already felt at home. Our... More

My family and boyfriend had stayed with Ahmed and his family a month earlier and shared that it would be a truly humbling experience, but I didn't realize just how at home I would feel. Ahmed's a wise and caring individual with a beautiful family that will make you feel like special guests rather than tourists. My boyfriend and I... More

To be in the desert in the hands of an experienced and caring person as Ahmed, is a blessing. Very welcoming family atmosphere, warm acceptance, beautiful house, a place that I would love to go back to, and stay longer than just a night. Ahmed is always responding fast to emails and phone calls, very accessible, helpful and conscientious. The... More
