“Probably the best auberge in the region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

The hotel is run by a Berber family who care about their guests. Mobarak, the owner/manager made us feel at home right from the start. We stayed 3 nights. Dinner was included in the price and was a pleasant surprise every evening. Breakfast plentyfull and tasty. Rooms are spacious with all amenities. Good size bathroom . Members of the family are musiciens and showed their skills every night around a cosy campfire. We got djembe lessons ! We really enjoyed the peacefulness of the area and the friendliness of the staff.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace, you can view the dunes.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

This hotel was recommended to us by friends who had used their camping facilities earlier in the year. The hotel is run by a proud Berber family who will gladly help you to understand their culture and a little of their language. Mobarek made us very welcome from the start. He helped us to plan our stay including an overnight camel trip into the Sahara, the hotel rooms were delightful and the food excellent.
Our evenings were spent in the company of the hotel staff and other guests - entertainment, in the form of traditional Berber music, was provided by Ahmed (one of Mobareks brother's) and other members of staff.
We very much enjoyed all the time we spent in Morocco but our stay at Auberge Takojt was definately a high point.

This Auberge is fantastic! The rooms were very comfortable and clean. My private access to the roof top terrace was a dream with my own personal view of the night sky. The food was simply delicious and everyone at the hotel friendly and helpful. This really was like a hidden gem I found in Morocco and I highly recommend it!

I have known the Laroussi family since 1994 during my yearly tours to Merzouga,especially our friend Mobarek who is one of the best guides in the region,his prosperous future is of a very hard work since he was a young guy with the 4x4 tourism.
Staying at his Hotel is a special home feeling as it is all run by his family and you feel part of it.
Its location is in the small village of Takojt in the region of Merzouga,situated at the foot of the Erg Cherbi Dunes,the site seeing from the rooms windows or balconys are breath taking.
Prizes vary depending if you want air conditioning in your room,They can be as £25 to £30.
I surely recomend the Hotel to any kind of persons cause they will all feel the special Hospitality of the People of the South,an experience no one will forget.
