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).
"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.
"ONE OF THE MOST"
This hotel is a special one which I had. Its location at the foot of the dunes of the Sahara gives it an advantage over more distant hotels .. We went to walk around in the moonlight on the dunes and felt isolated from the world It has a structure that integrates low and very pleasant environment to be in. The food is not bad and there is a large selection .. Great room and its unique structure. The pool and spa provide an additional place unique. Worth to come not only for the amazing sunrise
"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.
