A family-owned place that's got that right mix of style mixed with good hospitality. Our room was very comfortable with good lighting. The dining room is large and has good space between the tables allowing for privacy, food was tasty and service ‘spot on’. Great garden to sit and relax in by a large swimming pool and the hotel is... More

The desert and this camp were a highlight of pour trip to Morocco. It was such a unique experience to be in the dunes yet still have so much luxury and attentive care. We took the camel option to get to the camp - worth doing but is hard work to sit in a camel for an hour and a... More

Oh men, where to start?! We had such a great time in the desert Palace from Ali and Sara. The contact with Sara is easy going and very pleasureable that was already a good start of our trip. The greatest thing with the Desert Palace is that you are not there with 30 to 60 other people. That makes it... More

The hospitality is unmatched at Ali & Sara's Desert Palace. The entire staff went above and beyond to make our stay incredible. Accommodations were top notch and the food was incredible. Sara was so diligent with checking in and organizing and caring for our every need. Would recommend the experience to everyone! So very impressed!

Looking for "Paradise" in the middle of the desert? Well, this must be it! From the very 1st day, before even confirming our booking, Sara had been more than helpful and willing to send us all the necessary information regarding our trip to Morocco and Merzouga in particular. Once we've reached the village, (Sara's directions made it very easy) we... More

Perfect stay. You definitely want to go there on the back on a camel, as it adds so much to the atmosphere. Expect a lot of great food in a luxury environment, and of course sand as far as the eye can see.

From our fabulous camel trek to the enchanting bivouac setting, Sara & Ali and their attentive staff made us feel totally pampered. They made our visit to the Sahara a magical and memorable experience.

We enjoyed our stay at Sara's - we never met Ali or the camels that were named George, etc. Sara is very likeable and tries hard to make the desert experience a good one, I will certainly give her credit for that! She even provided us with drinks that she didn't charge us for. However, I'm not entirely pleased because... More

Stayed in Desert Palace for New Year's Eve 2015 and it was a fantastic experience. We rode with camels across the sand dunes and finally the camp emerged just before the sunset. From then on it was truly a fairytale experience. Sara, Ali, and the camp crew are just perfect and arrange evrything for you. All you need to do... More

We booked one night at Sara and Ali's in Decemeber and had the most amazing experience we had to book a second night! The location, rooms, value, food... Everything was absolutely fantastic! I cannot fault the whole experience. The rooms and grounds are beautifully decorated and the location amazing, you feel a million miles away from anything. It was actually... More
