I am grateful for being able to experience the beauty of the Merzouga and the desert during my trip. However as an experienced traveler I know, It would not be the same if I would choose different place and people. Ahmed and his family made this staying so much more memorable and made me feel like a part of their family. The place he created with so much passion, welcomes travelers with the genuine hospitality. I was traveling alone and was amazed how welcoming the whole family was. You know and feel that It's not just a business, it's sharing their life and culture. Rooms are cozy, you have all you need - comfortable bed, big shower with hot water, toilet seat ( not so common in other places ;), and space to hang out. My favorite spots were tents outside, very cozy and great place to hang out and have night long conversations! I used to have a breakfast there and The food ...ohhh!!! its home made, delicious and for sure you will never be hungry :) every day we were eating together with his family and it was a soul feeding experience too! Location is spectacular , you can see Erg Chebbi sand dunes from there and go for a walk there to just lay down on the sand in the night and see magnificent sky.
Whenever you are traveling alone or with the group, Ahmed will organize you the trip of your dreams to the dunes according to your own wish list and will make sure the stay memorable. I was more into meditation and quiet experience then 4x4 adventures on the desert but you can get whatever you came there for. Ahmed is a fantastic guide and flexible to your needs. If you want to experience this area, you must stay in this place. You will never regret and have a time of your life! Thank you one more time for having me, I can not wait to be back soon!
