Great and amazing place where the owner respected the local area. Clean, spacious, good service and great good. Rooms are spacious and the pool is absolutely a heaven on earth. You should try it if you are looking for a real experience

Stayed here for 1 night whilst on an Explore tour. Arrived in a sandstorm and felt like we were entering a foreign legion outpost! Attractive large pool and terrace area (sadly no time to enjoy it) with central reception and restaurant. Bedrooms were in courtyards, all on 1 level, rooms very spacious with modern tiled shower cubicles. Extremely quiet apart... More

Bed was a bit hard, had to change rooms because of cold water and repair works on hot water supply. Very nice swimming pool and good dinner. Close to the dunes, so good location. And lot's of parking space, which was excellent since we were driving.

Like the previous reviewer I came to this hotel on an Explore tour (Highlights of Morocco - recommended!) and I absolutely loved this place. It's simple but beautiful. Created in the style of a Casbah, it blends in with its desert surroundings and has an interior courtyard with a beautiful pool. Everything was immaculately clean. You could have eaten your... More

We have just spent 10 days in Morocco on an Explore Worldwide adventure trip. We spent one night here and wished we had spent more time here. This is a small run hotel with lots of character. It was clean and comfortable and if you had time you can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool. We ate in the restaurant at... More

Sitting in this hotel now a having enjoyed a good meal, with my motorcycle parked outside the door of my upgraded room. Perfect - it doesn't get much better. Really friendly and helpful staff and the hotel is in a fantastic location on the main paved road - access to some of the hotels around Merzouga can be a bit... More

Great place to stop, not too big, friendly and helpful staff. Really clean an comfortable rooms. Great little swimming pool, good simple food and great value and you can have Bed & Breakfast or half board option. Great stop for motorcyclists with shaded parking. The dunes are just outside the wall, spectacular!

My husband and I stayed for three nights at the beginning of December 2013. What a fabulous place to stay. The staff couldn't have been nicer, very helpful and friendly. We chose to stay in a suite, and what a great choice that was. We opted for bed, breakfast and evening meal. The food was very good and plenty of... More

We stayed here after a recommendation from other travellers we met in Fes. Easy to find, just follow the signs, turning right when you arrive in Merzouga. They have a couple of room options; double room & breakfast 380Dh or with dinner 500Dh. We chose dinner. Our room was large, two double beds, nice bright, clean bathroom and an a/c... More
