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).
"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.
"Surrounded by the Dunes"
This very big hotel as the most beautiful views of the Sahara. My room was very nice and clean quite big with a nice bathroom. The meals are served in a large dining room Buffet for dinner and breakfast. quite varied but not excellent. This hotel is not luxurious but comfortable. The staff we're very nice at the reception. We left our luggage before going for our night sleeping in the desert .
"This specialty lodge will thrill you"
The staff was so very helpful. We stayed here 1 night as part of a group going to the Erg Chebbi dunes. Situated in the middle of nowhere, the Kasbah blends in with nature. The terracotta colour of the walls and the round corners in the room make it very inviting and calming. Sleep came easy: the beds were super comfortable and the night so quiet, peaceful. Our room had a flat screen TV which we did not need. The ductless A/C worked perfectly although we only needed it for a few hours. The water in the shower was very hot. Yes, the Wifi was spotty ... but look where you are !!!! The food at the buffets (dinner and breakfast) offered a wide variety and was very good. Dinner included a wide choice of flavourful vegetables.
"Atmospheric Desert Palace; Slightly rough around the edges."
When we walked into this place at the edge of the desert, I thought we were walking into a palace. This expansive property has a huge pool area that was enjoyed by all. The room was huge, nicely decorated with colors and items that highlighted the property's desert oasis theme. We had 2 twin beds that were pushed together, and two sitting areas. Adjoining the bedroom was an open bath area, fossil sink, walk-in shower, and separate toilet closet. There was ample hot water but the controls were unstable. The air conditioning worked okay. There were minimal tv channels. The internet worked okay but was slow. There were NO unused electrical outlets, so we had to unplug lamps to charge phones and ipads. The mattress was overly firm. Lighting in the room was quite dim. There were plenty of items to choose from at breakfast, including made to order omelets, and a variety of tasty items in the supper buffet. Come for the atmosphere, but don't expect luxury.
