A group of 10 women from Oregon, USA stayed in the private desert camp prior to the country being shut down due to the Coronavirus outbreak The 5 tents gave us privacy and our own little oasis. Each tent had all the amenities you'd ever wish for. Flushing toilet and a shower, plus air conditioning (which we didn't need). The linens, pillows and comforter were luxurious. So unexpected. The tranquil setting and the luxury of the camp was only surpassed by the friendly hospitality of the Berber staff. You don't need more than one night to gain appreciation of this special place, but you'll want at least one more day! The camel ride was very fun and the sunset and sunrise was beyond incredible. Food was excellent. We went through many beers, rose wine and red wine. Very delicious as the wine came from Meknes (like our Napa Valley). Thank you for such a memorable, life-long memory. It was PERFECTION.…
The camp is perfect, great tents with all amenities, confortable beds and pillows nice Bath , air conditioning in each tent . At night wonderful food, in fact probably one of the best places in Morocco, food was very good. If you plan to drink wine and liqueurs advice beforehand they may be short of wine if the camp is at 100% capacity. After dinner enjoy the berebere and nomads music followed by a bonfire where you can enjoy the stars .
The compound is tucked away at the southern end of the Merzouga dune field and one enjoys the desert environment in very confortable facilities. Best is to arrive mid afternoon to enjoy the sunset and early candlelight dinner. Our travel operator (Monarch) did not explain what to expect from the local facilities and we arrived too late and left too early, not really enjoying the local setting. Food is basic but tasty, staff is friendly and rooms are cozy.
We spent a night at the Merzouga Luxury Desert Camp with our three teenage kids. It was one of the best experiences we have ever had on a trip. The accommodations are comfortable - electricity and running water (usually cold, but we were in a tent in the desert so I was happy to have my own flush toilet, sink and shower). We went on a camel trek, ATVing (DO NOT MISS DOING THIS. IT'S AWESOME), Sandboarding (so fun! Even for those of us that just sat on our behinds and slid down the dunes), and stargazing. The setting is incredible and the staff is lovely and helpful. We will definitely go back!
The food is good. The camel rides are good. They will not tell other loud guests that after 10PM it is quiet time. We were there. And they had a large group of people. They were very load and disturbed the peace and quiet in the desert. I would try to find another place to stay.
