“Isolated but PERFECT - a wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2009

On reaching Erfoud work your way away from the main road and to the market, the road leading from here will take you 20 km down to Kasbah Hotel Riad. At around 20km the road becomes rough and it is at this point you come off at the sign on the left for the Hotel. Follow the green and white posts for 2-3km and you will have reached the Kasbah Hotel Said.
We were very warmly welcomed and offered a choice of rooms. The rooms are wonderfully air conditioned but also have a real warmth of Morocco with a natural effect on the wall and hangings/artisan items around.
The food at dinner and breakfast was the best we had in Morocco, again freshly cooked and authentic cookery. Really beautiful and breakfast was lovely also.
The swimming pool was a real treat in the heat of the day, a bonus.

When we asked about local trips it was organised well and efficiently, Ergg Chebba a real treat although going to the Berber house was really interesting.

This is a wonderful place away from the normal run of hotels with lovely service and great food. Thank you.

We were met by a representative of the hotel in the Restaurant du Sud in Erfoud. We drove in convoy through Rissani and then left offroad along a 10km piste. We only had a 2WD but it was still OK despite several stretches of sand.

The Kasbah is completed isolated with only a couple of telecom towers visible in the distance. You can see the dunes of Merzouga on the horizon.

The pool was covered and out of action. We had a suite of a huge sitting room and smaller bedroom, both well appointed and comfortable. The leafy, shady courtyard is very pleasant.

Evening meal is included and the chicken tagine was equal best during our trip (we are now experts). Courgette and vache qui rit cheese (a French tradition) was very good. Desert was a fruit bowl. Good wines and beers.

Breakfast of hot croissants, pain au chocolat, great juice and coffee and obligatory pancakes.

We did a 4x4 trip to the dunes booked the night before. We were quoted 500DH PP but ended up paying only 700DH for 3 of us. If the weather holds (we had rain and wind), then the dunes are fabulous and well worth the time. There is a visit to the local village at Merzouga where the local dance tribe sing and play for an eternity. Even in poor weather, close up the deep orange of the dunes contrasts eerily with the dark skies.

On leaving, we were accompanied back to the main road.

A great place to stay but 2 nights minimum recommended. Very good value all round.

We were actually heading a little further on when we chanced upon the Auberge Kasbah Said. It's in the desert south of Erfoud and not the easiest place to find. Take the minor road from the town centre that goes through the market area and over the river then drive past the fossil vendor places until the metalled road runs out. After this take rough desert tracks, driveable in a normal saloon car, with care, when we were there, following the painted rocks for either Said or nearby (about 2 kms) Kasbah Derkoua.

The Kasbah looks the part - standing like a small desert fort in the desert with no other buildings within a mile or more.

We were the only guests when we stayed there and paid about £50 for the best room (the Asmaa suite) with evening meal and breakfast for two. Asmaa has a decent sized sitting area lined by benches covered in traditionals rugs and killims and an adequate bedroom. The decor is self-conciously North African and none the worse for that.

The place was clean and seemed well looked after and the bathroom was fully functional with hot water.

Our evening meal was substantial, traditional and tasty and breakfast was excellent.

There is a central courtyard garden which is a pleasant and shady place to sit and enjoy a mint tea.

  • Liked — The location and the mud & straw building materials. Tristram's Warblers in the garden.
