This auberge is a short drive from Merzouga itself, but is right on the dunes. It was a quieter part of the dunes, with less quad bikes and human traffic. We enjoyed strolling out for sunset straight onto the sand.

The auberge itself has a beautiful pool and nice communal areas with a restaurant and a tented area/campfire for after dinner. We enjoyed the food.

We stayed one night in a room in the old courtyard which was small and the shower did not drain properly, and then on our second stay we were placed in the newer courtyard. The room there was spacious, brighter and had a lovely outside area with table and chairs. I would advise asking for one of the newer rooms if possible.

There were some large groups staying there during our stay. It meant the food on the buffet breakfast often disappeared quickly, but they kept bringing out more.

I found the staff to be helpful and accommodating.

We stayed for half our time in the hotel and the other half in the desert camp - both of which I would highly recommend. The hotel is beautiful and extremely comfortable. Dinner at night was very fun with delicious food and a lively, cozy atmosphere in the dining room with all of the other guests (remember to BYOB!) It was not swimming weather when we were visiting but the pool is a great spot to relax, with gorgeous views of the dunes. The desert camp is also very comfortable (glamping much more than camping) has a similar dining room situation but in a tent rather than the main hotel compound. The dunes are just steps away from both, and we would highly recommend taking advantage of every opportunity to explore them including the camel rides, sunrise hikes, and your own daytime treks. Mustapha was a great host and very helpful in all of the planning leading up to the trip.

We added a stay at the campsite as a part of our Exoticca tour. What an experience! The 4x4 ride out to camp and the the camel ride at sunset in the Sahara was surreal. The food was very delicious that evening. The rooms were beautifully decorated and there is a shower in the bathroom. Air conditioner worked fantastic. No coffee or water in rooms but you do get a complimentary 591 ml bottle of water when you arrive. Unfortunately no bonfire that night since the wind picked up but they moved the musicians into the banquet tent.

We stayed in the tented camp not the hotel. As it was August and the temperature was extremely high we chose the option with A/C and I'm glad we did. Unfortunately around midnight my sister - in -law was stung ( bitten ) by a scorpion and was in great pain. We contacted the nearby hotel and they sent a car which took her to the nearest hospital which is 50 kms, away. She was given an antidote but was in pain for the following 24 hours.
Of course, we do not blame the camp in any way ( the scorpion was in home territory) but I mention this because the camp staff were magnificent.
We had an excellent evening meal and breakfast.
I want to say thank you to the young man who was the "night watchman" in the camp.

A delightful welcome from the staff all dressed in colourful attire, with lovely smiles offering a choice of drinks and finger food.

We were then taken for a camel ride over the dunes to watch the sun setting. An amazing experience!

Thereafter, we enjoyed dinner of freshly prepared cooked food and salads with plenty of vegetarian choices.

The evening sitting around the fire listening to local music brought the day to a pleasant end.

We were impressed with quality and cleanliness of our large luxury tent. The heating kept us warm and comfortable throughout the night.

The next morning, a walk over the dunes to watch the sun rise set the day off to a good start.

I would definitely return to this hotel.

The camp was nice but it was not as advertised. The ad says there is a pool but there is not, and there is no wifi. The dinner was amazing and the entertainment was nice with the communal fire. You could walk the sand dunes, and they also offered desert camel rides. It would have been a great place to see sunset/sunrise but unfortunately both were cloudy and windy for our stay. This rating lost a star due to mis-advertising from no pool and no wifi.

What an amazing two nights we spent at the Auberge du sud campsite! It is such a special feeling waking up next to the gorgeous sand dunes of the desert. The tent was fantastic, great AC and fresh clean towels (Thank you Said :)). Special shoutout to “DJ” Khalid, Hassan “The King” and Said “The Boss” for making this an experience to remember. This is a stop that cannot be missed during your vacation in Morocco!

We had been glamping in Jordan before, but this is even more luxurious. Every tent has its own water heater. Within the tent, the toilet is in a separate space, the shower too. There is airco, a real very comfy bed, it was really great. Diner was very good too and so was the camel tour. Arrive early for the breakfast as it's a buffet with limited quantities. We didn't have our breakfast right after sunrise, and there was not a lot of food left. Our bad!

This is a wonderful place to stay! Our tent was the best room we had on our whole Morocco trip. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. We loved both our camel ride and sunrise walk. The food was good and the place was beautiful. Highly recommend!!

Right at the edge of the Sahara. You can walk out from the hotel directly onto the dunes. Good buffets for meals. Lovely interior spaces. Rooms good, but not great. No housekeeping service for short stays. THE place to stay for visit to this region of the Sahara.
