This beautiful property on the brink of the Sahara is the perfect place to watch the sun rise over the red dunes. You can sit on the terrrace with a Moroccan breakfast and endless coffee, and then walk right out past a few palms and hardscrabble into the soft sand. The hotel arranges camel rides--highly recommend at sunset. Though I... More

We stayed here for two nights, standard room. Accomodation is very basic, small room, small bathroom, air conditioning off when arrived, so the foom was a furnace at arrival. It appears to be a big hotel, many rooms, but fortunately during our stay it was not overcrowded given the period. Swimming pool is good, and the overall riad is nice... More

The location is perfect and the hotel magnificent. The dinning place has a great view of the dessert and the pool is terrific. The rooms are clean, comfortable and cosy. If we have to pinpoint something, I would certainly like to show gratitude to the staff that helped us beyond their duty.

We just got back from our visit to Morocco. We did a camel trek into the dunes, and stayed at this hotel the night before our trek. It is a great place. We were there in low season, and other than the owner who was visiting from Italy, and a few guests from Spain, the hotel was otherwise relatively empty.... More

Driving from Marrakesh to Merzouga in one day took a good 10 hours, but the landscapes you see along the way will keep you going until you reach your point of destination. From then, Dar El Janoub was just what we wanted: a break from the mad rush, noise, etc. The guys there (Rachid, Moha and Ahmed) were extremely friendly... More

Choosing a hotel in Merzouga can be difficult. There are at least thirty of them, but only a few are reviewed. Some are in remote areas, others have no electricity during the day... Dar el Janoub is certainly a great choice and almost a no-brainer: good value, good service and great location/views (the bedrooms and breakfast area overlook directly to... More

A very nice hotel, comfortable and clean rooms. A relaxing swimming pool area. Good food. Very good service. And all that with an amazing view on the sand-dunes. Forget an uncomfortabe camel-ride and desert-camp: just stay in your hotel room and enjoy the view from your comfortable hotelbed.
