After a long drive from Zagora in out trusty Fiat Punto (you do not need a 4 wheel drive car) we arrived at this amazing hotel. Comfortable and cool with beautiful bedrooms. Air conditioning and a great shower. A beautiful pool with lovely gardens all sheltering behind the high walls. The view from our window looked over to the dunes and the desert beyond. The food was extremely good and the service friendly and efficient. We had booked a camel trip to the desert the following day with an overnight stay in a Berber tent. The staff allowed us to keep our room even although we were not staying in it. The desert trip was amazing,the absolute high point of the holiday. A 2 hour camel ride (more comfortable than I had imagined) then a meal eaten under the stars followed by music and jokes with our young Berber guides. Comfortable beds with clean sheets and blankets. Up to watch a perfect sunrise over the desert then a peaceful trek back to the hotel where a lovely warm shower and a fantastic breakfast awaited. Fantastic!

Our stay at Kasbah Mohayut was one of the best experiences we had in Morocco, plus we found a gem of a driver/guide, Ali, Moha's cousin. After corresponding with several desert kasbahs, we decided on Mohayut. Moha's (owner) quick response to my emails, complete answers to my questions, and fair price made this the perfect choice. The kasbah was full of character and charm, good food, considerate staff, comfortable beds, pool, AC, all and more one could hope to find right on the edge of the desert.

We (three adults) were anxious to have the desert bivouac experience. Late afternoon, we rode our camels through a breathtaking, ever-changing landscape like none I had ever seen. Our guide stopped periodically so we could take photos. The campsite was very comfortable with good beds, dining tent, flush toilet, lights, great tangine dinner and attentive staff. We had mint tea under an incredible canopy of stars. I felt like the queen of the desert! If you want an outstanding desert experience, this is the place!

In addition to our stay at Mohayut, Moha arranged for his cousin, Ali, to meet us in Fes, drive us to the desert and then across to our destination, Essaquira. Moha did an outstanding job in planning our 6 days with Ali, and the route he took was perfect.

1st day we left Fes early heading through the beautiful Middle Atlas, and spent the night at the kasbah. Second night was in the desert bivouac. The third morning, we departed for the Boumalen Dades though many Berber villages and to the Todra Gorge. The drive was very scenic, an agriculture river of green slicing though rocks, brown landscape, lush palm trees, and green pasture. Fourth morning we traveled through the Draa Valley seeing more beautiful and special spots and observing local lifestyle in the Berber villages. We had lunch near a famous kasbah which has been used in numerous films. Fifth day we continued on through Tarradant to Essaquira, stopping to photograph the amaging goats climbing argan trees. In Agadir, we had a delicous seafood lunch where all the locals go .

Ali took us to a women's co-op where they make products from the wonderful argan oil. Having Ali as our guide insured us of having good meals and maximizing our time to see and enjoy special places. We could travel at our pace and stop for that special photo. The restaurants Ali selected were all very good, and the places we stayed which Moha had selected were charming and comfortable.

Ali was very knowledgeable, accommodating, and patience while trying to get us to the next destination on time. Ali did everything he could to insure we had a memorial time, and it was like traveling with a friend. It was a long drive, but I would to it again in a heartbeat--and with Ali! Many thanks to Moha, Ali, and the special staff at Kasbah Mohayut.

Beautiful hotel on the edge of the sand dunes. We enjoyed the hospitality and delicious food for 9 days. Every evening we could walk out the back door directly into the sand dunes. We had a wonderful over night camel trek into the dunes and stayed in the Mohayut camp in the dunes. In the afternoons we enjoyed the beautiful pool and gardens in the hotel.

We just came back from our trip to Morocco. We booked our camel trek through Mohammed and we had an amazing time both in the hotel and on the trek . They have a very nice small camp which is in the middle of the high dunes .The owner moha made us feel extremely welcome and at home. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had an amazing time on the camel trek and have never seen such beautiful colours and been in such a tranquil atmosphere. We will recommend this hotel to everyone we know.

Our night at Mohayut was organized by Youssef at Desert-Trips. Our party consisted of three adults and one teenager. The pool was refreshing and very protected by trees and high walls. Some local pools are affected by winds and sands. Meals were delicious; half board was included in our stay. Extra towels were available by the pool.

The courtyard is a treasure trove of all things desert: fossils, sand roses, and greenery. Staff was cordial and accommodating. Rooms are air conditioned and well appointed. Glasses are wrapped. Shampoo and soap is available in bathrooms. There are shelves for clothes and places to hang clothing.
