“Exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Who knew that a small city in Morocco would have such a nice, comfortable riad accommodation? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this riad, which was booked as part of our 4 day desert trip with Around Morocco Tours (reviewed separately). Dinner and breakfast was included and both were terrific. The breakfast in particular was a very lavish spread of breads, eggs, etc.

We also did an overnight camel trek through this riad. Our cameleer, Ahmed, is as wonderful as previous reviews have described. Everything about this excursion was fantastic. We were in a small group (just us and one other couple), the tents were much nicer than we were anticipating, the tagine we had at camp was delicious, and the music we got to experience after dinner was great. Upon returning to the riad, the manager gave us a room to shower/freshen up before having breakfast and departing.

The manager, Mohammad, is terrific. He was very helpful in wrapping scarves on my husband’s and my heads prior to departing on the camel trek which came in handy during a sand storm. He runs a very smooth operation and we were very pleased with our stay here.

We were bought to Riad Nezha by our tour company ( Highlights Of Morocco) this Riad is perfect accommodation with really nice and tidy rooms provided with every comfort, excellent service, exquisite cooking and the owner (Brahim) is a wonderful host. We suggest everyone to pick the desert trip on camels with the night to be spent in tent, with music show performed by the berber friends who accompanied us. But Brahim wasn't only a perfect desert guide, he brought us to the market the day after, letting' us breath and feel the berber atmosphere. during all our staying he has been a wonderful companion. We surely hope to come back sooner or later, Insch'Allah.

We highly recommend Riad Nezha and Highlights Of Morocco Tour as part of a great Moroccan holiday.

This riad was included as part of our accommodation on our 10 day tour with our tour Company (Highlights of Morocco ) The hosts at Riad Nezha are very gracious and take pride in caring for their guests.
Mohhamed is a wonderful person who was also lots of fun. We even invited him to stay with us when he's next in the US. We stayed here before our camel ride into the desert and then the next day, had breakfast and took a much-desired shower before heading off. Loved the staff who were incredibly helpful and friendly.

From the Rooftop restaurant there is a panoramic view of the Oasis on one side and the desert on the other.
For anyone planning on visiting the Desert, and wants a clean, convenient and comfortable place to stay, the Riad Nezha is the perfect place.

Merzouga is the best place I visited in Morocco and this riad has pushed in this direction. The owner is really friendly and available such as also the rest of the people you will be in contact with. I recommend the camel ride into the deep desert, you will have a very good dinner under the stars in the middle of the Sahara. The riad is very clean and the quality of food is great.

We were bought to Riad Nezha by our tour company (Highlights Of Morocco)
We spent two nights here, one night in the desert camp owned by the Riad and one in the hotel itself.

The condition of the camps was so much better than we had imagined- all with electricity, solid beds, clean bedsheets and pillow cases! There was even a hidden washroom with toilet and sink (shhh!) Dinner was great, and our Berberic hosts were lovely~ We enjoyed the camel ride, the meal, the singing, the chatting and all.

Back to Riad Nezha the next morning, we had a refreshing shower and breakfast. The Riad Nezha was generally comfortable and clean, tho not in its best condition, it was still a lovely shelter for us to hide away from the heat/ rain/sand storm. We understood we were in the desert, The staff was friendly, warm, attentive and even humorous. Though not fluent in English, they tried their best to ensure our comfort.

Special thanks to the staff member (sorry I didn't get his name) for taking my mom back to the Riad on a desert scooter after the night at the camp, for she grew too tired to ride the camel. THANK YOU for your kindness!!

Oh, and we had absolutely the BEST TAGINE BEEF here at Riad Nezha, you've got to try it!!

What a stunning place to stay right on the edge of the Sahara! We arrived at night here and were warmly and enthusiastically welcomed. Our hosts especially made our two sons, ages 15 and 13, feel welcome, while learning some basic Arabic and multilingual greetings in English and Arabic. The building complex here is beautiful with perfect views from the rooftop terrace of the surrounding area, including the first sights of the Sahara desert.

We arrived to this stunning Riad in the cover of darkness. Greeted warmly by the team of Riad Nezha led by Brahim the owner. All details personally attended promptly and effortlessly. With a couple of hours left to greet the new year all was made special and welcoming for us. We had a truly special new years eve gala dinner followed by dancing. Excellent food choices, the staff made an excellent effort to make this night memorable for all present at the Riad so far away from our homeland.All facilities are very good and a splendid location for use as a base to explore the desert which is at the foot of this Riad. The view from our room was stunning, an oasis of palm trees with the Sahara sands just behind.Brahim and Mohamed speak many languages fluently, this made our time there very easy and interesting.
We highly recommend the stay in this Riad and all it has to offer for those interested in visiting Merzouga and exploring the desert.
