We were here off season to visit the Sahara. The hotel is built in the Kasbah style. There is a huge reception and a separate building for dining. The rooms are large, pleasant, and furnished with stone embedded with fossils from the area. As others have noted, they are dark. The food here is so-so but I've been told this... More

Our tour group used this hotel as a base from which to journey to the edge of the Sahara desert. The reception lobby was very grand and the dining pavilion was beautifully appointed. Nevertheless, it seemed the hotel had recently opened and was still working through minor problems that a more established hotel might have resolved. The 2 pools needed... More

After staying in some very lovely places on our trip through the Moroccan countryside, this pace was a let down. We were told we had a garden view. Our garden view turned out to be of a small dying palm in the sand. The room was spacious enough, but dark. We would have passed on the dinner and breakfast buffets,... More

We stayed at this hotel by accident. I became ill in Erfoud and our guide suggested that we stay in a 5 star hotel. When I couldn't eat my dinner, the hotel offered to get a doctor to check me out. The doctor spoke very little English, so a hotel staff person came to my room and interpreted for us.... More

We were part of a group traveling a little off season as it was the end of September. The rooms were quiet, very comfortable with a fully equipped bathroom and separate toilet area. As were a lot of the hotels in Morocco, the room was dark. There was a wonderful large serving of fresh dates waiting for us. The breakfast... More

I assume that the main reason for coming to Erfoud is access to the Sahara, and for that, much more meager accommodations would do. This is a lovely hotel, consisting of several buildings. Our stay here was very good. Our room was quiet and comfortable. My only complaint is that the room was too dark.

Excellent facilities, wonderful meals, including dinner and breakfast, and very helpful staff add up to an unforgettable stay. We highly recommend staying here before you head into the desert. The location is perfect, on the outskirts of Erfoud. It's quiet, and truly an oasis of luxury.

This is a work in progress. They are in the middle of the desert, so some slack needs to be given, but, when I was there, the sewer stench was so awful, I could hardly stand to be in my room. Service at the restaurant is mediocre, as is the food. The facilities are beautiful, but the execution leaves a... More

This is an oasis of tranquility. Beautiful property. Quiet, private, serene. It was a real treat for me and my partner as a young couple. The stay exceeded our expectations with stunning grounds, beautiful decoration and attentive staff. We wish we had more time to spend in there. We would most definitely book again.
