I contacted Sara when I was starting to plan my trip to Morocco and found her to be so friendly and extremely helpful! I was struggling with how to map out our stay in Morocco, and Sara spent a lot of time on the phone with me working through different itineraries and offering a lot of insight. I was very... More

Wow!! What more can we say. Well a bit more... From our first contact with Ali and Sarah to the last they were so helpful, from planning excursions to a special request for my now fiancé..

Sara was very helpful. She arranged drivers and guides for us throughout Morocco. Our drivers Aziz el Bourki and Mubarek Fayou were amazing. One of the women in our group wasn't feeling well and Aziz helped her like he would help his mom. Their vehicles were excellent. We felt like we were leaving family behind when we said good-bye to...

An absolutely awesome place, a must see if in Morocco. Sarah was amazing in terms of booking and providing valuable information before our arrival. Unfortunately we did not get to her during our stay. Ali (Aziz) was a very warm, witty and hands on host. Lovely dinner outside accompanied by music, jokes and puzzles. A morning camel ride to see...

Sara was fantastic from the first email and even reviewed the rest of our travel plans and made some great recommendations. We headed out on the camels at 5pm and it was a lovely, very different way to travel! The camp was amazing with proper beds, separate private bathroom tents and lots of chillout areas. We had a 3 course... More

The camp is definitely beyond our expectation. Everything is perfect for our honeymoon trip. The camp is clean, especially the bed and toilet. Food is too good. It is even one of the best dinner we had in Morocco. Ali is so friendly and helpful. I hope I could stay one more day there and chill a bit more. Highly... More

I stayed here with a group of friends and had a fantastic time. Ali & Sara are wonderful hosts and can help book a car/driver to get you to their site in the desert (and take you onward to another city as well). The desert visit was my favorite memory from Morocco and I highly recommend it. Riding on camels... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We created Ali & Sara's Desert Palace with the aim that our guests could experience the beautiful and natural setting of the desert, staying in clean & comfortable surroundings where the focus is relaxation and enjoyment, together with some safe adventure. Nestled well within the dunes, we're about an hour or so from Merzouga village by camel and 20-30 mins by 4x4. If preferred we can collect clients from around Morocco or if travelling independently we can greet you on your arrival in Merzouga village for you to enjoy light refreshments before setting off by the desert ship, the camel to your home for the night. Our aim is to remain as environmentally friendly as possible and lighting is by a combination of candle and solar power. We pump water from our own water well and guests can take hot water showers, with laundered towels and toiletries provided in a large dedicated bathroom which also houses a separate flush toilet. Dining is in under the stars or in our separate well furnished restaurant and food is freshly prepared to suit personal preference, served at a time to suit. We wake our guests to see sunrise although it's not obligatory and breakfast is served at a time to suit, there's no early morning rush or hurry on our part for our guests to depart. Our aim is for guests to have an exceptional and complete desert experience, we take great care of our clients and we pride ourselves on our service, always on hand, but unobtrusive. ... more   less
