“Some of the best days of my life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

In Morrocco i was full month, n Khamlia i just spent exactly my 30th birthday. I must say that i was the best choice. Pension Khmalia is very nice a clean, hot shower at any time. We lived right in the Berber family, so there was no sterile atmosphere than in other hotels. Cared about us a kings :D. Owner for us perfectly cooked - berber kalia & berber breakfeast - can not forget...I depend on mint tea :D :D
The most beatiful sentence, in which Europe can not hear - everything is possible....They organized for us a wonderful trip to the dessert with camels, which will certainly repeat. Gnawa live concert just for us ....Everything we liked it there. Thank Brahim and his family a great atmosphere.
This was the best cure for melancholy and sadness. THANK YOU MANY TIMES:

What can I say! The food was beautifull, it was peacefull and nice. I would higly recommend staying an extra night in the guesthouse itself..because the food he makes is one of the best I ate in Morocco And we eat at many different places:) and the glimps it gives you into morrocon familylife is a gift.
Treat yourself!

Excellent one night camel trek into dunes organized by Dar El Khamlia. We arrived late but it was no problem and our camels were ready to depart into desert dunes even by moonlight. Fabulous experience, great food and hospitality. Highly recommended to anyone whishing to explore the Erg Chebbi area. Avoid touristy Merzouga and head towards little village of Khamlia instead. This is the place for a true and authentic desert experience. You won’t be disappointed!

We stayed in Khamlia two nights and it was wonderful, I never saw so many stars in the sky! It's a quiet place, we had time to relax, we walked around in the sand and we enjoyed excellent food, which Brahim served. Khamlia is totally a good choice compared to Merzouga, where is so many tourists and where is so much hustle.
We also liked the overnight camel trip to desert, beautiful sunset, dinner and night in the dunes were perfect. Really special place to stay!

Room Tip: only two rooms and both are nice :))

Dar el Khamilia is smaller hotel with family atmosphere situated at the quiet place close to Merzouga with view at the sand dunes. The hostility in this hotel is outstanding. The breakfast we got was the ritches we had in Morocco. The trip into desert was just perfect. I can recommend this place for any travellers who prefer quieter places and do not need air-conditioning. Mainly, you get what you pay for. We had a great time there.

We (23 and 26 years old) had a wonderful time in Khamlia!
We did a trip around morocco but KHAMLIA was the BEST!
The owner Brahim and his family was so nice and helpful, the food was AMAZING, the house was very clean and beautiful!.....everything was awesome!!! Dar El Khamlia has great offers: you can go on a camel trip to erg chebbi and sleep in a berber tent, look up to the stars and enjoy the silence *_* Omar our guide is a berber, very nice! had his own tent with kitchen, cooked dinner for us - delicious! or you can make a four by four tour!
If you look for something special - go to Dar El Khamlia!

THANK YOU SO MUCH BRAHIM & MANUELA! SHUKRAN!!! WE HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME!!!!

See you next time ;) We'll come back!
