“A wonderful origin house, lovely people and the overwhelming desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2011

I was traveling alone as a woman without any experience, but to hand over to berber-people means, that they take care for you, you are protected and you will never get lost! tell them your wishes, and sure, they will come reality. in this house you feel like it is your second home. as it is not too big, it has a kind family athmosphere. it is possible to make a trip to the oasis- an unforgettable experience!!! it is worth to take time there to learn more about the cultural heritage of the berber and the values of the society. I was there for 11 days, and I will be back, soon. there is much more to learn, to taste and to research. and most of all: the desert is a very decent, kind and wise teacher.
thanks to all the beautiful people there, tanmirt

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2011

This was a breath of fresh air after a few unpleasant experiences in Morocco. Ali, the owner, is very kind and outgoing. The hotel is at the foot of the dunes. Despite this, it is spotless, with brand new modern bathrooms, hot water, and a very pleasant decor. The hotel's reasonnable price includes breakfast and dinner, both very good! We were planning on staying in Merzouga one day but stayed 3 because of how happy we were at Les pyramides. If you want to relax and enjoy the serene comfort and beauty of the dunes, this is the place to go. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you go there, say hello to Ali, the owner, and to Said, the camel guide, who is a very warm and kind person.

I really appreciated my stay in this hotel in November. The staff is very kind and it seems to be in a family. The service and food is always excellent and the view from the hotel to the dunes is really remarkable. I hope to come back soon and if you want to have a great stay in the desert you'll find in this comfortable hotel the right place.

Spent one night there after a night in the desert camp and before driving on to Fes. The hotel is located on the outskirts of Merzouga right next to the sand dunes - perfect and quiet location. At the first sight the hotel seemed a bit basic and rundown and the owner Ali a bit arrogant but it all proved to be completely wrong and we had a great stay. Our room was smallish but had all the necessary facilities - a comfy bed, a working a/c (needed that), fully equipped bathroom with readily available hot water. There was free wifi. Had great food and drinks (Ali and his staff satisfied all our whims :) In the after-dinner chat Ali proved to be a great company giving us a wealth of information on the way the local people look at things and life. Finally, a company of cute desert frogs (or were they toads?) performed a free dinner show leaping around hunting for mosquitoes and other goofy insects :)

Words reallly cant capture the ambience of this totally magical place, itts located on the edge of the dunes, kick off your flip flops and dip your toes into the sand.

Previously, Ive visited here for days only, not staying the night and totallyenjoyed the atmosphere. The people who stay appear to be a truly eclectic mix of people, photographers & suchlike, solor travellers seeking adventure, friends travellling together and families with well behaved children.

This time staying for a few days we've had a great time. The rooms are spacious, aired and very clean. The food is on demand, freshly prepared and plenty of, whilst the service is friendly, not intrusive and professional.

I really dont think its possible to beat the overall imagination, quality and service of this place.
