“At home in the desert”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

It´s been my first time in Morocco and I couldn´t find a better place to stay.
Alí is running a guest house so beautiful that is like being at home. I can not say what is the best of all, because everything is amazing. The place, the friendly welcome , the food, the camp in the dunes , the raid in 4 x 4.
Alí and his family are the best persons you can find. They strive to make you feel at home from the very first minute following the traditional arab custom of welcoming guests.
Thank you very much for what you did from your heart.
I am sure I will come back as soon as I can

It is over a year since we stayed at this guest house and I still think it was one of the highlights of our holiday.Did mean to post a review at the time but just never got around to it, but doing it a year on must say something! All the good things said in other reports are all very true. Ali, his brother and nephew are all great hosts. Don't miss the trip to the dunes that they will arrange for you!

We greatly appreciated the warm hospitality of the family Seggaoui in the excellent Guest House Merzourga, enjoying the swimming pool, the good food and the friendly conversations with Mr. Lahcen. It was really hard to leave it for continuing the travel!

Room Tip: We enjoyed one of the rooms at ground floor, close to the swimming poll.

We spent two nights last week at the Guest House - one night at the House and the other night in the dunes. Ali and his brother are wonderful hosts. They have created a beautiful, welcoming, and enjoyable place for their guests. The camel trek into the dunes and overnight under the stars was magical. This place was truly a highlight of our Moroccan travels.

This guesthouse is top! Very clean, beautiful large rooms and the best Moroccan food ever.
The swimming pool is not too big and not too small, just perfect. The breakfast is nice and the location can't be better. Just 10min walking from the dunes.
Ali, the host, is the best!! Thank you Ali for all the information, for your patience and your hospitality. We will recommend this address to everybody. You can't visit the dunes without staying at your place. Thanks again and we hope to see you again one day.

Room Tip: All the rooms are charming!

We arrived around 11pm in the center of Merzouga by car. We made the mistake of pulling out a map and the faux guides were on our car like hyenas! Avoid these faux guides at all costs, they will say ANYTHING to get you to follow them - stay strong!! We went about 5KM back to the gas station on the main road that leads to Merzouga and made a right onto the only other "paved road" which led us directly to Guest House Merzouga. The faux guides claimed this guest house could only be reached 1) by following them and 2) only if you had a 4x4 - neither is true. We had a tiny rental car and had no issues!

Ali, is the operator of Guest House Merzouga and he could not have been more warm and welcoming to us at close to midnight. He set us up with a room and made us a nice meal as well. In the morning he arranged for us to have an ATV tour of the desert. The guest house is beautiful, clean, well maintained and the pool is a very nice bonus in the heat! Ali and his family run a great business and this is a FANTASTIC place to stay when you are in Merzouga!

Ali is a great host, we arrived very late for one night only, and as we did not want to miss the night in the desert, Ali managed to get us camels straight away to head to the desert.
An amazing stay in a lovely place, the pool is great and the staff is so kind !

Thank you, we'll come back !
