We were looking at a variety of luxury desert camps and were extremely pleased with this choice. Amazing value for money when you include half board, the camel trek in/out of camp and the luxury tent. The Erg Chebbi is not as stunning as say, Sossusvlei in Nambia, but the desert camp has done a remarkable job. Well worth it's...

Ali and Sara are wonderful! We had a lot of questions for them after we booked and Sara answered all of them patiently and promptly. Ali greeted us as soon as we got there. Took us on a 4wd and gave us some sand dune tour. The place is beautiful with running water and WIFI in the middle of nowhere....

This is just perfect. Would recommend to anyone who wants to experience the desert in Morocco. I got there in the afternoon and went to the camp place by camel. On the way pictures were taken and I even got some berber lessons. Ali is very helpful and the cooks, cameldrivers and musicians (most of them are multi-talented) do a...

Very friendly staff, specially Ali who greeted us with a smile and a surprisingly accurate Portuguese. (loved the t-shirt with a Fernando Pessoa portrait) We knew Erg Chebbi was just a small stretch of desert, but all the experience gave us a good impression of what it is to live in such an rough environment. We loved the camels (what...

We were impressed with Ali and Sara's Desert Palace from our first email interaction with Sara. She went above and beyond, giving us advice on our itinerary and providing helpful suggestions that shaped our time in Morocco. All of the staff were amazing. From the camel trek into the desert to the delicious food to the musical entertainment - every...

This piece of paradise is great to spent a day/ some days in the tranquility of the desert in an amazing setting. The staff went out of their way and made the experience amazing. The tent was comfy, has an outlet/ light. Breakfast and Dinner were served in style and were one of the best we have had in Morocco....

One of the best experiences I have ever had. We were the only two people staying in the camp which was in the middle of the sand dunes. We got picked up from Merzouga and went on a camel trek and watched the sunset over the dunes. The camp was comfortable, the service was excellent. You have to go to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We created Ali & Sara's Desert Palace with the aim that our guests could experience the beautiful and natural setting of the desert, staying in clean & comfortable surroundings where the focus is relaxation and enjoyment, together with some safe adventure. Nestled well within the dunes, we're about an hour or so from Merzouga village by camel and 20-30 mins by 4x4. If preferred we can collect clients from around Morocco or if travelling independently we can greet you on your arrival in Merzouga village for you to enjoy light refreshments before setting off by the desert ship, the camel to your home for the night. Our aim is to remain as environmentally friendly as possible and lighting is by a combination of candle and solar power. We pump water from our own water well and guests can take hot water showers, with laundered towels and toiletries provided in a large dedicated bathroom which also houses a separate flush toilet. Dining is in under the stars or in our separate well furnished restaurant and food is freshly prepared to suit personal preference, served at a time to suit. We wake our guests to see sunrise although it's not obligatory and breakfast is served at a time to suit, there's no early morning rush or hurry on our part for our guests to depart. Our aim is for guests to have an exceptional and complete desert experience, we take great care of our clients and we pride ourselves on our service, always on hand, but unobtrusive. ... more   less
