We stayed with Ksar Sania and organized our camel trek with them. It was very quiet because Ramadan had just started but we were very welcomed at the hotel. We stayed in one of the AC rooms because it was sooo hot while we were there (45˚ or so.) The pool was very clean and refreshing and the dinner was... More

Whilst in morocco a trip to the Sahara was near the top of my to do list, relying on the lonely planet guide we decided to stay here as it was highly recommended. The owner met us when our bus arrived and drove us the the riad which is a little drive away from the town. Ksar sania is surrounded... More

Location is stunning and really typical. Although the Auberge is a fully eco-compatible building it is also a very comfortable and affordable accomodation for european standards. Rooms and common spaces are clean (at least as best as they can be, just in front of the Sahara desert) and quiet. The staff is always around, but they're very discrete and ready... More

The location couldn't be better: outside of the over developed core of Merzouga and Hassilabad but so close to the giant dunes we could walk to them from our room and still near to an asphalted road to head out further afield. The staff (Francoise and an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable young man named Zuhair) can organize excursions into the... More

We stayed at the Ksar Sania at Merzouga to take a trip on camels into the desert. It was the perfect starting point. Great to have the pool and meals outside. Francoise is fabulous. She created the Riad on her own - amazing. Francoise will organize and excursion into the desert for you. Raschid the camel guide has a degree... More

Every detail in this French run eco-friendly lodge added to the serene trance of the Sahara desert. Instantly we fell in love with the place and added a third night to our itinerary. The huts are gorgeous with a view of the Sahara from your window. Stone tiled bathroom and shower. Arched courtyard. Delicious food. I highly recommend the berber... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in Merzouga and Ksar Sania. We found the food excellent and the staff very happy and friendly. The rooms were nice but the bathrooms could use more ventilation. It was great to be so close to the dunes.

We were on 2 weeks tour and we stayed one night in ksar Sania. the owner is very arrogant.She did not have any respect to her employers .she cried in front of us and we dislike that very much. The room was not clean ,the towles were very brown ...Try another hotel as there many in Merzouga.

Didn't stay but wished we had. Lunch was excellent - berber omelette with a wonderful salad. Everyone we spoke to was very friendly, including Francoise the owner and her staff. Despite flood damage to the property some years ago, it has been lovingly restored, with accommodation options for everyone's budget.

This beautiful place is close to Merzouga, but just the right distance away to give you some rest next to the dunes. I ended up here by accident, and Mustapha and the rest of the friendly staff gave me a very warm welcome. As a solotraveller I were invited to eat and hang out with the staff. All the information...
