The Riad Aicha is a great place to calm down, enjoy a relaxing time on the terrace, eat real Moroccan food and be hosted by wonderful people who speak English, German, Spanish, Berber, Arabic and a bit of Japanese. Thank you, Ibrahim and crew for the great Sahara experience and your kindness:-)

I stayed 3 nights (2 in the desert), and I can only thank Riad Aicha for such a warm hospitality. Absolutely welcoming, genuine and generous, I absolutely recommend this place if you consider visiting Erg Chebbi dunes and Merzouga Desert.

We used Riad Aicha for our desert camp trip as well and it was great. The guide/cook/waiter/entertainer was hilarious and speaks maybe 17 languages. A great find -...
