Hotel Kasbah Mohayut
Ranked #1 of 23 Hotels in Merzouga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2011

It is hard to know which of the Kasbah's to pick - they all seem to do the same thing. We are glad we chose this one. The Kasbah is easy to find a few hundred meters off the tarmac - hard ground ordinary car is fine. The Kasbah is very nice, we had a fabulous lunch of salad and berber omlette, plus desert. We were give a room to use even though we were doing the dersert camp. 4pm is camel time!. We were there the same day as the group from Texas so when I say it rained for us too - it's the same day - I think it rias 2-3 times a year and we had one of those days. As we rode out to camp the wind blew hard and we certainly got a sense of the power of the desert. The camp was fine - not their fault it was a little damp!. Dinner was not as good as I had epected given the lunch we had had - or the breakfast the next day. A damp somewhat uncomfortable night was had then we awoke to clear sky, beautiful dawn, amber sand and our heart lifted. Breakfast back at the Kasbah was very good, the camels seem well cared for. If you were looking for a relaxed 'do nothing day' on your trip an extra day here would certainly work.

Our group of eight was met graciously by our host, Moha, with the traditional mint tea and soon we were having scarves tied around our heads Berber style. It was time to pack up your not so good camera and hop on your dromedary (one Hump) named Clyde for the overnight in the desert. This was a chance of a lifetime to sleep in a rustic Berber tent under the stars!
We each took only a small bag into the desert and left our luggage in a secured hotel room offered by the hotel. The guides helped us each onto our Berber buddy and started our one hour ride into the Sahara. The dromedarys were all docile and connected together, so there was no chance of having one take off from the group. The wind was blowing, the sand was caking in our sunglasses, it was a little chilly with a few sprinkles of rain, but it was so much fun. Our guides cooked our meal, a tagine, and served it in the dining tent. We did take with us our own wine that we had bought at Marjane supermarket. We all had individual tents for sleeping though they were all hooked together and the WC was just outside the tent compound. From what we understood, it had not rained in several months, but it did that night - and hard. About 3:00am we could finally see those stars we'd been hoping to see and upon waking at sunrise, a beautiful blue sky greeted us and a hardpacked desert, so easy for walking on the dunes. Our photos are incredible, blue sky and orange desert with great camel shadows on the dunes.
Breakfast and a hot shower awaited us back at the hotel. The hotel let us use 2 of the rooms to shower and reorganize before serving us a hearty breakfast on the rooftop terrace. I would highly recommend this experience for one night and I would recommend Kasbah Mohayut. I thought their service was great and the experience was once in a lifetime for most of us. Please remember this is rustic, in a tent, in the desert. You are not in a 5 star hotel nor even a bed and breakast, actually you could call it a bed and breakfast in the desert. Also, the hotel gives you a going away bottle of "sand", it's not cinnamon, so avoid putting it on your toast.

The Kasbah Mohayut has a very charming Sahara / Berber setting that makes you feel the desert magic.
The 2 rooms we got were confortable and well equiped; we enjoyed both breakfast and dinned served in the restaurant / tent.
Don´t miss the fascinating morning camel dunes sunrise trip; he hotel can make all the arrangements...

It seems there are rooms which have been refurbished while others that actually need refurbishment. The one we had needed to be taken care off. We didn't have hot water even if used within the time frame that we were told to use it to have hot water. The A/C was working but half way through the night it would decide to stop cooling. The toilet had quite a few insects and a couple of stools were broken. If one wanted dinner, this has to be pre ordered otherwise you will only manage to get an omelette. On the otherhand the pool area was very nice.

Our stay at Kasbah Mohayut and to the desert was the highlight of my trip to Morocco . The staff were welcoming, friendly and always helpful throughout our stay and even provided us with the tour of the village gardens and parts of the village itself. The meals were of local cuisine and our guided trip by camel in to the desert to camp the night was well worth the experience.
