I stayed at Dar El Janoub in 2010 and was driving through Merzouga again and planned to spend some time in Dar El Janoub after a wonderful experience previously.
The second stay was to the same standard as I had expected from 2010. I arrived late in the evening, around 10pm, the hotel staff were incredibly hospitable and welcoming and asked if I had dinner or if they should arrange something. I asked them to arrange dinner. A freshly cooked meal was served up and it was to a very high standard. It was finished off with fresh fruit that was perfectly ripe and served cold. It was a thoroughly enjoyable dinner.
The rooms are decorated in a traditional Moroccan style, this style may appear a little dark for some, but the rooms were very clean throughout and the bathroom was also spotless and spacious.
There is free wireless throughout the hotel that is fairly fast considering the location in the middle of the desert!
We made use of swimming pool which was also clean and quite refreshing in the hot weather.
Breakfast was a traditional Moroccan affair, served to a high standard, and was an absolute feast. If you do manage to get through all of breakfast, make sure you don't have to hurry off anywhere!
There is ample parking, if you happen to drive here although the staff are happy to make arrangements for you including collection and drop off in Fes.
The owner and all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Dar El Janoub is a very relaxing and quiet place to stay with great views over the sand dunes. If you just need some time away from the rest of the world, this place will do it for you!
