This is a really nice place to stay when visiting Merzouga due to its location right by the dunes and the warm hospitality of the staff. Rooms are spacious and well-appointed with nice large bathrooms (with ample hot water) and just a few steps away from the pool. There are many comfortable places to just hang out, whether around the pool, on the veranda, or on the upper terrace which overlooks the town and the dunes. In fact, we had a nice welcome tea and cookies up on the terrace as the sun set. Breakfast is included and is plentiful (various breads, yogurts, great fig preserves) and you can also have them prepare dinner (extra.) Our dinner was a wonderful spread of vegetable and kefta & egg tagines, with a delicious flan topped with caramel sauce for dessert. The staff can also arrange for a sunrise camel ride or other excursions although the dunes are so close, it's easy to take in the sunrise on your own. Overall, a great place to stay made even better by the hospitality and service of the smiling staff.
