Fabulous location. Reasonably comfortable with fairly basic food. Very friendly waiters and staff. direct access to the dunes from the front door. Extensive desert activities available. Inexpensive. Location makes this a great intro to the desert

Our experience in Auberge du Sud was amazing. The staff is very friendly and can speak all the languages in this world. The food was delicious and very well made. We had opportunity to stay in 3 different rooms and every room is different with very nice moroccan decoration. The swimming pool was perfect.

This is really amazing. This auberge is so close to the sand dunes that it is almost possible touching them from the pool. we were very happy to be here. Although said earlier it is a throughly amazing experience being so close to the dunes in such a wonderful hotel. The kids ( 11,9, 7) loved the fact that the... More

we found this place because it was recommended to us by friends who had stayed here before. The pool has excellent views on the sand dunes, and you can book all of your desert trips at the reception.

Well, the hype was there from other reviews: desert dunes, the night sky filled with stars, camels trekking you I to e desert to a wonderful overnight tenting experience: and that much was completely satisfying. The take-of and return point, however, left much to be desired. While the desert camp was luxurious, clean, the food excellent and the staff friendly,... More

We loved to be there in the desert BUT Noisy moto quad cars were driving just few meters from us (and from other guests) while we just wanted to watch sunset and hear the sounds of the dessert.

The desert is just in front of you, or I would say you are in the desert. You can enjoy camel ride twice during your one night stay, for sunset and sunrise. For sunrise camel ride, you need to get up early in the dark, but the meeting point is just there. After dinner, just look up into the sky.... More

I loved staying at Auberge Du Sud. The staff were friendly and it had everything needed for a great few days of relaxing in the desert. My time spent by the pool watching the sunset over the dunes was unbeatable. The hotel itself is not 5 star, so don't expect everything the be top quality. The wifi can be sketchy... More

We loved the trip to the desert on the camels. The camp was amazing and the food was great. The entertainment with Hassan and his crew was great. The star gazing was spectacular. The food back at the auberge was adequate. But the overall desert experience was so good that it didn't matter!
