We (two young Caucasian females) travelled to merzouga prepared to stay for three days (which subsequently reduced to two days).The hotel had come highly recommended. The location is superb, you walk out of the front of the hotel onto the sand dunes and we had an amazing view from our room. However we were very disappointed by the very unfriendly welcome we received and we were treated mostly with disdain throughout our stay. It was difficult to arrange activities but the sunrise camel ride was worth the effort. The food was copious but not tasty. The room was big with lovely views and was comfortable although not luxurious. The pool was green and not inviting.
We are laid back travellers and did not expect a 5 star hotel but we were very disappointed and would not recommend friends or family to stay here, mainly due to the unfriendly atmosphere. However the sand dunes of the Sahara are definitely worth the effort to get to merzouga, spectacular!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

Kanz Erremal has a haimas camp and also organizes a ridding a camel trip in order to spend a night in the desert. Furthermore, it organizes seven-road trips to explore the spectacular places that the landscape offers. The Hotel has the structure of a typical kasbah: it is made of adobe mud and hay. The rooms have a traditional decoration, typical from the region. They have air conditioning, free wifi access, bathroom and great external views, most of them to the dunes. The pool is located in front of the dunes, so swimmers have the impression to swim in the middle of the desert. The hotel offers a good example of traditional Moroccan cuisine based on natural ingredients: hariras (soups), vegetable tagins, chicken, beef, lamb, varied couscous, raw and cooked salads, skewers, Berber pizza... In short, Kanz Erremal is a place of peace and authenticity and a good site in order to discover the spectacular golden sand of the Sahara dunes. ... more less
