“Outstanding trip, marvellous accomodation, awesome tour guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We organized the trip to Merzouga following an advise from friends who had already been there. They were talking about merzouga and "Maison merzouga" as they had lived a dream. They weren't wrong. We had the best time: perfect accomodation with really nice and tidy rooms provided with every comfort, excellent service, exquisit cooking and the owner Hassan (Lahcen) is a wonderful host. We suggest everyone to pick the desert trip on camels with the night to be spent in tent, with music show performed by the berber friends who accompanied us. But Lahcen wasn't only a perfect desert guide, he brought us to the market the day after, lettin' us breath and feel the berber atmosphere. during all our staying he has been a wonderful companion. We surely hope to come back sooner or later, Insch'Allah. Mercì beaucoup, Lahcen! yours, Flavia "gazzella" & Tommaso "gazzello"

The staff of the Guest House were absolutely lovely throughout our stay and offered us the most charming welcome that we'd had in our entire trip to Morocco. We felt extremely well cared for by them and for lack of a better word, were enchanted by the entire family. The location of the Guest House is fantastic and it offers stunning views of the Dunes from the rooftop. The food onsite, especially the breakfasts, were some of the best we had during our very long trip around the country. Finally, the house itself is pretty magical and beautifully decorated. I'd absolutely recommend this place to anyone traveling in the area and thank everyone at the guest house for a fantastic experience. I hope to be back again in the future.

The only reminder I'd offer is that you are traveling in an adventurous area and that the property is somewhat open to the natural wildlife there. Also, if you are going on the overnight excursion into the dunes, again remember that you are camping and should have a flash-light, etc. with you. In my opinion, the benefits of staying at the guest house far outweigh any concerns.

We arrived late after a very long journey to the edge of Erg Chebbi. Ali and his excellent staff could not have been more welcoming. We felt like extended family. An excellent dinner was waiting in the garden and music was played. We had tea near the beautiful pool as we planned our 4x4 excursion for the following morning and also received more information about our planned overnight adventure to the berber tent camp in the dunes. Mohammed was a fantastic guide the following morning and we highly recommend taking the excursion to see flamingos, the black desert and even a stop for tea with a nomad. We then returned to the guest house for lunch and to prepare for our overnight. If you are at all worried about doing an overnight camp into the dunes, this is the place you'll want to do it with. Ali made sure we were comfortable and even stayed with us until we were securely up on our camels and ready for the 90 minute ride to the dunes to catch sunset. the whole experience was definitely an adventure - this is a true tent camp with limited amenities - but it's an experience we won't forget. Dinner was great and sunrise over the dunes made it very much worth it. We returned the next morning for a shower and breakfast before saying goodbye to Ali and his beautiful twin boys! We highly recommend this guesthouse as part of a great Moroccan holiday.

We came here after spending a night in a Berber tent riding camels in and out of the dunes, on arrival we were settled in with some mint tea and immediately could see it was the perfect choice for some desert relaxation. Right from the start the staff are friendly and helpful and this theme continued throughout our stay. We only had one night to spare but we could easily have spent much longer here. I would reccomend this place without any reservations and would definitely come back.

Maison Merzouga Guesthouse was an unexpected surprise. The hotel is outstanding: located 3 minutes walk from the desert, built according to the local taste and customes, serving the best dinner and breakfast we had during the whole 3-week trip across Morocco and offering great services to visit and experience the desert.

Fantastic welcome from Ali who came and searched us after a 6h ride from Ouarzazate with 3 kids aged 8, 7 and 2.5 years old. He offered tea for all of us and showed us our room previously heated for our confort, we agreed on what the program could be the next day which was going out as a family for a day in the desert. We had a lovely supper in front of fireplace and Ali had a chat with us on his family, all his children matched our children's ages. The day in the desert was just great, we kicked off in the morning with an 1H30 ride on the camels and arrived to the tents where Youssef our guide prepared a berber pizza for us. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and we the silence and calmness only broken by our children's laughs. Youssef was very discreet and kind to all of us including having to tighten the cover in which I tied my little girl to myself when she fall asleep during our walk back.
Came back at the end of the day and watched the sunset from the dunes and walked the final part without our shoes on the sand letting go any tension to the earth. Supper again in front of the fireplace with a windy and chilly night for the desert. :-)
Breakfast next day was better than the day before with more moroccan crepes and figue marmalade.
Off we went after thanking Ali for his hospitality to Azrou.

We arrived by bus, at 6 a.m., an hour earlier than scheduled, but Ali stil had two cars waiting for us in the cold pitch black. We were disoriented and tired, unable to communicate w ith our drivers because we don't speak French, Arabic or Berber, but we were whisked off to the Guesthouse, where Ali was waiting. Breakfast was already laid in front of the fire. Rooms were waiting with the heaters going. That afternoon we took the cameltrek out to the tents, spending the night there and then coming back in the morning. It seemed as though every time we turned around we were being fed. The courtesy of the entire family was exceptional. The little touches delightful. Our last morning, Ali and his brother drove us back to the bus station. They had taken care of getting tickets for the next leg of our trip. This was definitely, the most touristy thing we did in Morocco and because of that it was also the most expensive by comparison, but still fabulous value. We were all amazed at the level of service, the quality of the food, and Ali's entrepenurial zeal. I arranged everything by email and Ali was always responsive. I would definitely recommend the whole experience.
