We enjoyed a delightful 1 night stay in the Riad Nezha during our two week trip around Morocco. As others here have attested, this hotel is truly an oasis of hospitality and comfort in the desert. We arrived late at night after driving from Midelt, and we were greeted by the owner of the hotel, who promptly took us to the recently completed pool, where we enjoyed a spectacular dinner by starlight, staring at the dunes on the horizon. This was truly one of the best meals of our trip, accompanied by *insane* quantities of food (we had to beg them to stop, as we were feeling like utter gluttons!). The bedroom was comfortably appointed, adorned with regional touches like a Berber-style woven wooden ceiling and fossil-embedded polished granite sinks in the bathroom like those we had seen in Midelt. The soothing ambience of the pool is only matched by the spectacular views afforded by the rooftop terrace of this hotel. In addition to excellent facilities, the staff of this hotel were the model of hospitality. Special note must be paid to the delightful Mohammed, the young relative of the hotel owner who is a jack-of-all-trades around the place. His English was excellent, as was his sharply-honed sense of humor. When bringing us breakfast in the morning, he set a variety of tajines in front of us and announced that we would be dining on "traditional Moroccan specialties, camel meat and stewed donkey." I think he enjoyed the polite look of horror on our faces, as he quickly said "just kidding!" and lifted the tops of the tajines, revealing an assortment of delicious fresh jams/preserves and the ubiquitous Moroccan fried bread that was a staple at every breakfast. All in all, a fantastic hotel--if you are visiting Merzouga, look no further!
