Auberge Les Pyramides

Reviewed February 18, 2014

I spent one week, over new year,at les pyramides hotel in merzouga. my trip was organized by ali anaam and sara breeze and my guide was mobarek.

the staff at hotel was very friendly and always helpful. the food was absolutely amazing cooked!
the place is perfect because its located exactly nex to the dunes!

mobarek and a camel guide, which name i cannot remember, took me to the desert to spend new years eve in a berber camp. that was a big experience, sitting around bonefire and dancing to berber live music with spanish tourists!

i wil never forget this time and hope i can come back at the end of the year!
one thing i regret is i forgot to give the staff tips for the best service!
next time i hope!

The very beautiful auberge Les Pyramides enchanted minds of my friend and myself immediately after ariving, so did the personel working there. The dunes lovely circled the place giving us most unique room-view and we found ourselves very pleased and joyfull all the time. This auberge is the best place to start journey to the beauty of Erg Chebbi dunes and discover the new horizont of life.

We found this Auberge through Mohammed, it has few rooms and great staff , they do all their best, always helpful with a smile. Thank you Ali & Youssef for the great hospitality and also to our camel man Mohamed who brought us into the world of happiness in the dunes.

Rooms are cool & clean which is the most important points in Merzouga, fresh juice and mint tea for the breakfast, centerraly located in the city.

I really can't say enough good things about this place! We stayed here in the middle of a road trip around Morocco and without a doubt it was the highlight of our time there.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting right at the foot of the dunes, it was everything you could hope for when visiting the beautiful Sahara, The hotel itself is very authentic and very clean, our room was very spacious with a huge bathroom and wifi was available at no extra cost throughout.

The best thing about this place though without a doubt is the staff. We visited in July during Ramadam with temperatures reaching 43 degrees celcius and were the only guests in the hotel, despite this we were given a very warm welcome and by the end of the trip I felt like I was leaving my family! the food was lovely, they took us into town and treated us like old friends!

On the second night we took a camel trek into the desert which I highly recommend doing, the desert camp was so peaceful and idyllic, again, we were served up some lovely food and then they played us some awesome music, had a great laugh before sleeping in the bedouin tents and waking up for sunrise.

Ali gave me a "sand bed" which was a crazy and memorable experience I won't forget and recommend.

We really can't wait to get back there, I was very sad to leave even after just a few days and wouldn't stay anywhere else on the desert, so take my advice and BOOK It and send my love to my berber family!

Ali has improved his lovely hotel since we visited 9 years ago. He serves amazing food, the rooms are clean there is air conditioning and wifi. Some in our group took the camel ride and enjoyed it. He arranged our visit to her local musicians and helped arrange taxis for other outings. He speaks various languages and is accommodating.Very affordable as a westerner.

Room Tip: We like room five which has a shower And toilet in the room, I don't know if all do.

Location is awesome, literally at the base of Erg Chebbi in the sand, great colours (and peaceful) , perfect for artists, writers, etc. Camels are 5 minutes away, but I hiked to the top of the dunes by foot (very strenuous) and the next day to the lake. Merzouga / Supratours Bus is only 10 minute walk and they offer free shuttle pickup/drop-off. The Berber food included (breakfast and dinner) was delicious and very filling; all the staff were extremely friendly. I just chilled when not out and the Wifi was very fast and in all areas, including rooms, which are wonderfully decorated traditionally and have huge bathrooms. I shall return for a month next year, Thanks Ali and Muhammad :) !!!

Nothing was wrong, absolutely wonderful place. The only thing that I didn't like was leaving.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared great, I did have an end room with a wonderful view of the clear blue sky contras...
