Kasbah Hotel Yasmina ist an excellent hotel right at the nothern end of the sand dune of Erg Chebbi. Therefore it is very quiet and lonely being far enough from the meanwhile somehow crowded Merzouga. The standard is very high and the rooms are tastefully furnished (sink with fossilesfrom Erfoud etc.) but the prices are reasonable. The food was delicious, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Everybody aims to make your stay in the desert a success. They know every place in that area and gave uns excellent recommendations even for non-standard-requests like birdwatching. As the hotel is close to the Yasmina salt lake it is anyway an excellent initial point for birdwatchers (for special trip wishes ask in advance). Also the sand dunes can be climbed alone in a short time for sun set ans sun rise. Even without 4x4 you can reach Yasmina hotel if someone shows you the way through sand drifts. The perfect hotel for all who people searching for an relaxing desert feeling at high standard.
