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).
"Loved The Desert View !"
We Loved this Hotel, We did the Camel ride at the sunset and the Quad very early in the next morning ! The food was great with a good selection for breakfast and Dinner . My daughter loved the pool and had fun making new friends that helped her with learning Moroccan .
"Not the best of the Xaluca group"
Okay, so I get that there's no tv because they want you to get the true desert experience, but then at least provide a reliable wifi connection. It's really annoying the way it comes and goes. And the air conditioner isn't remotely powerful enough to cool the room. After being out in the hot desert all day, a cool room would be most appreciated. And maybe stock your in-room fridge with cold drinks' Otherwise pretty room, very desert-y looking, in an otherworldly setting, with the dunes right outside the door. The food is mediocre though plentiful in the buffet, and the drinks in the bar are ice cold. I'd give this hotel a rating of average.
"Overnight camel trek"
Our family of 4 did the overnight camel trek arranged through Hotel Tombouctou and I would definitely recommend it. We found doing the camel trek with the hotel as a base was the perfect combination. After a long, dry, hot drive, we got to the hotel a few hours before we needed to leave on the camels and had full access to the pool, changing rooms and showers, and a bar for drinks and even cold beer - all super welcome! The camel trip was a once in a lifetime thing (and probably ONLY once as a couple of hours on a camel made even our teenagers a bit soar). But well worth it - the kids dune surfed, we all lay under the many stars until late at night after a great dinner and music, the morning is beautiful. The camp was very comfortable. Back at the hotel the next morning we got to enjoy the huge, mostly western style, buffet breakfast before getting back in the car. While I can't speak to actually staying at the hotel, having those amenities on either end of our camel trek certainly made for a more comfortable experience.
"Quality hotel in intriguing location"
This attractive hotel is part of the Xaluca group, and is situated right in the desert. The guest and public rooms are all very appealing. I especially liked the smooth curved walls and shelves in our standard room; in looking at their website, I see they describe the walls as having a "lime plaster coating" called "tadalaket." The public rooms, including an impressive meeting room, are nicely decorated. We were with a small photography group, and it was a perfect location for that. At sunrise we could just walk a little ways into the dunes for good shots, and in the evening we rode camels to shoot at sunset! The buffet has wide choice of Moroccan cuisine. We would have loved to stay longer!
"Highlight of our Morocco trip..."
Just stayed here for just a night but it's an experience we will never forget. I never thought i'll find something this beautiful in the middle of a desert. I love the rooms with it's doorless bath. I love the view from my window. Imagine seeing the Sahara just outside my window...The best hotel food ever. There was a wide selection from the buffet dinner..Wifi connection in the rooms is great..will definitely stay in this hotel again..
