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).
"A historic and very comfortable kasbah"
The rooms here are very simple but very clean and comfortable, with exposed beam and reed ceilings and stone floors. This kasbah was built in 1944 as a reception hall (rather than a fortification as is the function of most kasbahs). It was later converted into a hotel / guest house but retained the original architectural detail.
"Good Location, poor service"
The hotel itself, and the location right on the edge of the dunes was brilliant. However, when checking out their card machine wasn't working, and the staff were not very helpful. The nearest cash machine is about half an hours drive away, luckily we got sorted but a big hotel should be more aware this is pretty important!
"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.
