I can't recommend enough staying in the Riad Dar Tafouyte! :D I originally booked a desert tour with Audax Events, and Dar Tafouyte was the riad where we left our bags before going to the desert camp. However, upon my return to the riad to take my bag and drive back to Marrakesh, I changed my mind and decided to stay a bit one day and night in the riad so that I could enjoy a day in Merzouga. I was received by Ibrahim, the owner, and Hassan. They welcomed me with some tea and helped me a lot in order to arrange a way to stay one night longer. I felt like they really cared about the costumers' happiness, and not about money like many other people in the tourism sector. They seemed genuinely nice and treated me as if I was an old friend. They speak so many languages, btw! And their Spanish is flawless. The riad is so stunning that I felt like I was a princess in a castle. The decoration, full of Amazigh motives, makes it so cozy. The views from the terrace are amazing, you can see the desert, Merzouga and the surrounding towns. The whole riad is really clean and the food that I ate was great. The two boys at reception, Ismail and Mohamed, were so nice, polite and funny! Because the coronavirus situation was getting worse, there were no many tourists in the riad at the moment, which was awesome for me and my friends, because we could become very good friends with the staff- we talked, chilled, play drums, watched the sunset, drank tea together... I was so sad to say goodbye to them! We became very close in a short time. I wanna say thanks to Ibrahim and Hassan for their help and hospitability. To Ismail and Mohamed for their kindness and great service. To Ali for taking care of us in the desert. To Said and Morbak for guiding our camels. And to the 'guys of the quad' Ali and Mohamed for their knowledge and coolness, even though they don't work here. I hope I didn't forget anyone, because I really felt like everyone was super nice and accomodating. I hope to see everyone soon!

Our tour company used this hotel as a drop-off for our night in the Sahara. We were given a room (although didn't sleep there), and it had traditional architecture, a hot shower, working AC, and a good size swimming pool which during the hot days would be very welcome. The desert tour we were taken on from here was about a 2 mile camel ride to their camp. Typical breakfast was good when we got back. Breads, yogurt and an egg. Oh, and they did have FROZEN water which was very welcome for such a hot environment, and we were able to drink throughout the night. Bonus points for that.

Relaxed environment with an outstanding breakfast. Recommended for visitors with own car. The Way to the camel tracks is quite close. The landlord was very polite. After the Camel track he allowed to stay as long as we want to relax at the pool

This Riad may not be on the main road but don't be deceived by appearances either. The welcome you receive is matched by the best pool side area located next to a desert. The riad is spotlessly clean and the garden areas are a riot of colour. From this Riad you are able to organise treks into the dunes of Erg Chebbi by camel. These tours leave late afternoon allowing you to enjoy the cooler evening temperatures and the stunning sunsets. Our camel driver Barack gave us many opportunities to take photos and made sure we were enjoying the ride. As night fell we arrived at our camp and were provided with separate and comfortable beds in tents with close access to flushing toilets and washing areas. The camp workers set out to make sure we had a great desert experience by cooking us fabulous tagines, (they even catered for vegetarians) dancing and singing and showing us the evening stars. When you thought it couldn't get better you return early the next morning by moon light to enjoy the sunrise. The slow steady tramp of the camel and the majestic silence of the dunes would make any heart joyful. This has been the highlight of our Morocco holiday and we hope to be back for a longer trek next time.
