Great place to stay in Merzouga, our room and bathroom were clean and spacious with traditional Moroccan architecture. AC was a little noisy, but heating well. The location is perfect with scenery view to the desert. We took a camel ride organized by hotel stuff and it was great although a little costly. We also enjoyed good breakfast. Special thanks...

Good location: only a door to the desert. Nice environment: top terrace with a beautiful view to the dunes and a nice pool. The staff was very kind and helpful. The meals (dinner and breakfast) was plenty and delicius. Clean and comfortable room. Recommended. Merzouga is the calmest place in Morocco, but unfortunatelly the quads can destroy the authentic experience-should...

This Riad is slightly more expensive than others in the area, but you get what you pay for. Good location, close to the desert, offers parking, beautifully decorated and the swimming pool was a great place to relax in the sun! Especially after an over night stay in the desert and a morning quad biking. The decor is just like...

Super friendly staff. Excellent food. Just one step away from the dunes. Great place for sun set, sun rise and night stars watching. Very clean. We liked it so much that we extended stay for one more night.

My stay at Riad Ali was excellent. The service that they provide their guests is exceptional – I was picked up at the bus station since my bus got in really late and they prepared dinner for me even though it was nearly midnight. Every one of my requests was met by hotel staff. I felt pampered staying here and...

First, we live in Morocco and travel here extensively and have never had to 'wire' a deposit to a hotel before booking, this was inconvenient. Second, I arranged a one-night stay at the riad and a one-night camel trek for our family. On the telephone I was assured that I was being quoted for the 'higher-end' camel trek that they...

The riad is located at the beginning of the sandy desert towards Algeria, which is very evocative. It is even too much luxurious for my standards, since I prefer more modest and authentic places. However, it is beautiful, there is heating in the rooms, hot water (but scarce) and a swimming pool, that we didn't use because it was winter...

We travel in a numerous group of friends and families with childrens with Totmarroc. Stay here about 4 days, no time to get bored on this beautiful oasis in middle of the desert and near to the big Merzouga dunes: a lot of activities (4x4, quads, rutes on desert, dromedaries, traditional markets, khaima, swimming pool, mineral and fossils fields...), a...
