Super friendly staff. Excellent food. Just one step away from the dunes. Great place for sun set, sun rise and night stars watching. Very clean. We liked it so much that we extended stay for one more night.

My stay at Riad Ali was excellent. The service that they provide their guests is exceptional – I was picked up at the bus station since my bus got in really late and they prepared dinner for me even though it was nearly midnight. Every one of my requests was met by hotel staff. I felt pampered staying here and... More

First, we live in Morocco and travel here extensively and have never had to 'wire' a deposit to a hotel before booking, this was inconvenient. Second, I arranged a one-night stay at the riad and a one-night camel trek for our family. On the telephone I was assured that I was being quoted for the 'higher-end' camel trek that they... More

They picked us up in the middle of the night when we arrived by bus. We got a room and breakfast for first night - from 5 am, very... More

The riad is located at the beginning of the sandy desert towards Algeria, which is very evocative. It is even too much luxurious for my standards, since I prefer more modest and authentic places. However, it is beautiful, there is heating in the rooms, hot water (but scarce) and a swimming pool, that we didn't use because it was winter... More

We travel in a numerous group of friends and families with childrens with Totmarroc. Stay here about 4 days, no time to get bored on this beautiful oasis in middle of the desert and near to the big Merzouga dunes: a lot of activities (4x4, quads, rutes on desert, dromedaries, traditional markets, khaima, swimming pool, mineral and fossils fields...), a...

My friends and I (three girlfriends) had an amazing tour. We were picked up in Marrakech in a 4x4 and then drove to Merzouga. We stopped at many sights along the way - N'kob, Ouarzazate, Ait-ben-haddou, Dades Gorges, and drove through the Atlas Mountains. When we arrived at Riad Ali, it was like something out of a dream - serenity... More
