“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamt of seeing the sahara. Sand sun and dunes...
Sahara services made that easy.
Their hotel in M'Hamid is legit. They had musician performing before dinner which was cool.
Dinner was good but not amazing.
The next morning, after a typical morrocan breakfast, we got on dromedaries. Two hours of riding. It felt like we were going in circles and when it ended we were not that far from where we started. But who cares? One thing bugged me though and it is not Sahara services fault but more a national Moroccan problem: there was trash all over the route we took on the camels. Tons of plastic bags and plastic bottles. Super sad.
The we got on 4x4 for a couple hours. Thank god we got away from the trash!!! Then a quick stop at an holly oasis where frogs were having a concert. Loved it.
Then 10 more minutes in the car and BAM!!!! The dunes. So worth it. Perfect. Magic. Divine. Graceful. Harmonious. A chock. We were given lunch. Pretty good grilled chicken and vegetables. Desert : always the same everywhere: oranges (They are good but after a while you kind of get tired of them...). Then three hours of free time in the dunes. Happiest moment of my life. Then quick shower in the tent. Never thought a desert tent could be as comfortable. Real bed. Proper toilet!!!
Before dinner, we were surfed an aperitif of mint tea, coconut cookies and peanuts. Nice.
Then couscous dinner. Loved it. Same boring desert. Oranges...
Watched the stars for 30 minutes. Amazing. Then bed time. Desert gets cold at night. They provi blankets. But a hat and thermals helped me sleep for sure.
Wake up early to se the sun rise. It's worth it. Breakfast is great. Hot cocoa. And crepes!!! Perfect.
Then two hours back on a 4x4 back to M'Hamid.
All in all, pretty good service. I am satisfied. If I went back, I would skip the camel part. Kind of silly...

Our family just returned from a Sahara Services guided tour of Marrakech and the Sahara. The kids really enjoyed the sand boarding on the Sahara dunes onThanksgiving day. The Berber tents were awesome as well as the Hotel Kasbah. Khalib was the best guide ever and the kids really connected with him. They had our trip planned very well and we received excellent service from all our hosts, and food was always exceptionally delicious. The Camel ride was just the icing on the cake! I would strongly recommend the Sahara Services.

The Hotel and Sahara Services offer great experiences, hospitality and of cause services. The hotel is really nice, clean and the food is great! The staff is multilingual and helps not only planing your trip but also with every small or big question you have. I can really advice the hotel and trips organized by Sahara services. We meet Niam at the airport in Marakech when he dropd of some other travelers by chance. He helped use to find our way to our raid. Compared with others the trip he suggested was the best offer we got. All together we had a great day trip from Marrakech to M'Hamid with some off road driving, many nice spots on the way and a endless number of stops for pictures! After a great welcome and night at the hotel, we went to the Sahara to stayed a night at the desert in a camp at Erg Chigaga of Sahara services. It was a great experience with a camel ride in the sunset.

all together I can really recommend Sahara services, the hotel and the camp in the desert! Many thanks to all the staff for clean and nice rooms/ tents, for there helpfulness and the great food. Especially we want to thank our guide Niam. He also was a great help for us planing our way back from the desert back to civilization.

I just got back frm my camel-trip with Sahara Services and I was totally satisfied with absolutely all of it!
The Hotel Kasbah in M'Hamid is a very nice place, my room was beautiful in Berber style with a nice bed and shower!
In the desert we stayed in Berber-Tents that were more luxurious than a lot of hotel rooms I had seen in Morocco: expect hot showers; warm beds and even flushing toilets! The staff was friendly all the way and never got tired of helping - thank you for a wonderful experience!
Thanks especially to my guide NAIM, one of the best Jeep-drivers I ever met, and also super-fun to hang out with! He drove us to Erg Chigaga off-road until our Camp and on the next day via Iriki Oasis, where we got out of the car to look for some fossils, and then went right on off-road towards Jebel Siroua. We made a lunch break in Tazenakht, a Berber Village, and then got to Marrakesh in the early evening.
It was a wonderful experience, shukran for everything !!!

Room Tip: All of them are a good choice!

When we arrived to Mhamid we first stayed at another hotel which was nice as well: Then we went on a five day camel trek with Sahara Services. It was just the two of us, which was a great experience: Our guides Omar and Habib were wonderful. They showed us the desert from its most beautiful perspectives, tought us Arabic and they also were great fun to have them around. English and French was really good and they even know some german now... And the big bonus: Omar is a great singer: And walking the desert wih some traditional arabic songs arund you is especially beautiful. After he trip we stayed at Kasbah Sahara Services for two nights, which was also great. Its very cheap compared to other places in Mhamid, with verw nice rooms, a great restaurant with very nice staff in a beautiful small garden. Everything was very clean, we had hot water and nothing to complain about. We felt very welcome, everybody was helpful and up for some talking and explaining the culture and habits of the nomads. We can really recommend the Kasbah and the trips to Sahara and we hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

We booked a few weeks in advance, paid a the 4th floor office in Marrakech. We arrived end of the afternoon to stay at Sahara services for 1 day in the end of september 2012. We were welcomed by the manager and could still choose which room we wanted to stay for the night, we could choose for 2 searate rooms of 1 bigger room. The room was air conditioned and clean. The food was good and well prepared. Lateron they started to play desert music and made fire. We had good company and a great evening.
However they won't tell you that much about the trip on beforehand you can always ask everthing you want to know. Our trip would only start at 16.00 the next day to the desert, while we were expecting to leave more early. But in the end we were glad we stayed in M'hamid a little longer. The manager took us to the old Kasbah in town to have another tea, which was a great experience. We even went to his families home to met his mother and sisters.
When we got back after 2 nights of desert there was no problem at all to take a shower at one of the rooms although we would leave within a few hours. They even prepared a small lunch for us when we were about to leave. They also helped us out to point us to the next garage to inflate our tires. We experienced a very flexible and friendly staff and would defenitely recommend the sahara services!
Wifi is available as well :)
