One of the oldest inns of Merzouga, Auberge Tombouctou was built according to the spirit of the ancient caravanserais: an immense Moroccan common room accommodates hikers in the evening, wayfarers, and guests, where one talks about his adventures, discoveries and outdoor experience...
A bivouac of comfortable Berber tents is put up for extra-mural accommodation. There is also the possibility of camel rides, to go contemplate both sunrise and sunset or simply to explore the desert. City slickers will be transported far away from the stress of urban life and closed space.
Tombouctou hostel is located in Merzouga, in the heart of a palm oasis.
Directions: Pass through Erfoud Rissani (paved road) - Direction Merzouga - Follow indications to the hostel (3 kms before Merzouga village).
"Nice hotel next to Sahara sand dunes"
We were impressed by the location next to and walking distance to Sahara sand hills for sunset and sunrise views. Excellent meals both dinner and breakfast. My advice is for guest when coming to this hotel make sure to book half board because this hotel is in the middle of nowhere, rooms excellent .wifi ok. (We used cameltrektours.com. For transport around Morocco. Best company to deal with, for van/4wheel drive or car hire with driver. Ask for Hamid very knowledgable and courteous driver. Contact Moha 00212661821652.).
Very clean... authentic resort! Love the Desert Moroccan theme throughout, the building and cosmetic design was well appointed. 4x4 treks including Camel treks all done via the hotel....4x4 drivers are great! Camel trek was a dream! Our camel handler took us to the top ridge of the highest dune to see the sunrise....what a life experience! The whole aspect of friendly guide, the ease of the camels and awaiting the sunrise was truly a dream moment to last a lifetime! Staff at the resort are all helpful , attentive, very friendly....Food at the restaurant was exceptionally good! Nice big selection, and desserts were wow! Soooo yuumy! Thank you Chefs! The rooms were well themed to the area, clean and modernish... If your out walking at night, press any of the buttons next to any of the rooms, as they turn on lighting the way through the hallways and stairways. One improvement i could only see...is the lighting over the bathroom sink, could use more lighting.
Good experience in Sahara, the Hotel quite big suitable for big group also, we went to top roof and took photo in night time sky are clear, that day was going to 1st day of 2017, Big party , a lot of food , good show , great services and friendly from staff.
"Comfortable hotel with camel tours into the Sahara"
The hotel was very friendly. It was well laid out with lovely view of the sand dunes, a pool area and spacious room. We took an overnight trip into the Sahara with a camel ride to a Bivouac managed by the hotel. We were not sure what to expect. In winter take warm clothing it is very cold at night. Gloves are essential especially for the return in the morning. The dinner exceeded our expectations for the location. The Bivouac had camp beds and lots of blankets. Washing facilities do not exist. We had to ask for bottled water to wash our hands before dinner. There are about 6 cats at the camp which are noisy at night. We arrived in time for sunset and left early morning after sunrise. Straight back to the hotel for breakfast and a shower. We had been able to leave our cases in our room overnight. It was a fantastic experience and one we'll never forget.
"Amazing view of the Dunes"
I chose this location as I knew it was a bigger hotel and I wanted to go with a group to do a camel safari and my mom could stay in the hotel and enjoy the company of others. The best thing about this option was that we stayed two nights and we had a double room rate for one night and a single room for the other. I thought this was very fair of the hotel as we paid the extra for the camping for one. The camel safari left at 4 pm and it was about 2 1/2 hours to camp. It was very cold by the time we arrived. The camp bed was comfortable and lots of blankets are provided, but the blankets are heavy. If you go in the winter as I did, you really want to have gloves, hat, extra socks and a jacket. The food at the camp was good. In fact, it was better than at the hotel. The food at the hotel can be bought as a package of breakfast only or breakfast and dinner. There is lots of choice and the staff are very attentive, but the food is cold and not particularly exciting. This hotel caters to big groups well and serves a large number of people. The spaces around the hotel are beautiful and I cannot say enough about the views over the dunes. Our room was fine, but very dark. I've read this elsewhere but don't understand why they don't fix this. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. I had laundry done at the hotel. It wasn't cheap, but it was quick and easily organized. We also used the spa. I have monthly massages back home and have to say this was one of the best massages I have EVER had. That says a lot. The pool area looked beautiful and I loved the fireplace lounge and enjoyed the live music in the evening. The price of wine was very reasonable.
