Home sweet home
My husband and i stayed for a night. We enjoyed the stay. The owner is friendly and helpful. Try and experience the "feel at home"/"home sweet home". The entire place is clean,quiet with traditional moroccan-style decorations. We are looking forward to visit and stay in this place again soon.

Our sweet Prince!
Youssef was absolutely amazing! We left there friends with him! He was so flexible. We took an overnight bus from Fez to Merzouga to do a camel excursion. Unfortunately, we had already booked with someone else, and were unaware that Youssef hosts them, as well. He was sweet about this, still meeting us at the bus at 7 A.M. and walking us to his place. He is so easy to talk to and took such good care of us. He sat us down, fed us, and let us sleep, as long as we needed, as there was no-one in need of our room, that night. He made sure that our ride picked us up and was kind to the excursion host. We appreciated his extra effort and would choose his hotel, again and again...and we hope to get to. What a dream come true!

Authentic & Boutique, w/ 5-Star Concierge Service!
Our favorite experience in Morocco! We stayed 2 nights & were so sad to leave! Youssef was extremely kind & helpful, waiting up for us after we had some travel delays before we arrived. He fixed tea & snacks, & made us feel so relaxed & welcome with his sunny disposition – our travel delays melted from our minds! The house itself is lovely, with bright blue accents, a great fireplace room with comfy sofas, a courtyard, big private rooms with large beds, en suite bathrooms, & lovely Moroccan decor. Breakfast was fantastic; more & more food kept coming, and we ended up stuffed! Right behind the house is a large, lovely oasis and the beginning of the magical Erg Cheggi dunes. Youssef helped arrange a camel trek to his own private dune camp for our 2nd night, where it was just us, one other lovely family who were also guests at the house, & a couple of staff to help cook dinner & guide the camels. After an amazing starry night with music & great food (& a great sleep in a safari-style luxury camp, with beds & private toilets!), we headed back to the house & were able to shower, enjoy another great breakfast, & relax before checking-out. He also helped point out places for wildlife & birds, & could arrange anything you like (better service PLUS better pricing than the big group tours we saw!). We had a magical time, with the service & attention of a 5-star concierge (who seems to speak at minimum 6 languages fluently), all bundled up into an authentic Merzouga Sahara experience.
