Beautiful hotel with incredible hospitality from the owner. Fantastic meals, clean rooms, and a perfect pool and view, you will not forget your stay here. I was staying here on a study abroad trip, and this hotel was my favorite.

This Riad - own by a local Maroccan - built in 2008 in traditional style, is a pearl in SouthEast Morocco on the edge of Sahara. We stayed here 2 nights and enjoyed every moment.
It has 12 lux rooms and 3 suites - all with attached bathroom, A/C, super furnitures and beds. Free WiFi all over. A super clean pool with parrasols and nice sunbeds. Very friendly staff and owner, and excelolent food. Free bottled water throughout the stay.
The place is very, very quiet nd calm with absolutely no trafic.
Beautiful roof terrasse to take dinner and watch sunset over Sahara dunes.
Prices 30-50 EUR per person with dinner and breakfast. Low seasson the price can be negotiated.

Riad Nezha is an oasis in the Sahara dessert. It is a beautiful riad with a lot of thought into the building of it to provide amazing views of the sand dunes from the rooms, roof terrace and pool.

The rooms are large with air conditioning and wifi throughout. It is also nice to see they are decorated with local products.

The pool is beautiful making a great end to a day touring around the dessert or clearing all the sand out after a camel trek into the dunes.

The food is great, we especially loved the tagine.

The team there were very friendly and couldnt do enough for us.

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights during our trip with Mohamed our driver, representing Brahim Karaoui and his company, www.morocooverland.com. Actually, we had the rooms for 3 nights as one of the nights we spent in the desert camp.

The first night we arrived, we found ourselves among a family - Mohamed is the head of this clan, most of the guides are his close relatives, as is the owner of the riad, Brahim. We were made feel like part of the family, too. It was all very friendly and relaxing.
The staff of the riad, Hassan and Mohamed, is almost exclusively male (there is somebody who cooks who I think was a lady), and very friendly, courteous and professional.

Brahim built the hotel on the site where his house use to be. The riad is 3-years old and is built with care and love - and pride. It is conveniently located at the last town before going to the dunes. In fact, the camels were outside our door. He is experienced in the tourist industry having had his own tours prior to opening the riad.

The rooms are large and clean. There is a large pool in the back that I am sure would be great to cool down in in hotter weather.

The food was tasty, plentiful and exactly when we asked to make it.

We could not have asked for a better place to spend 2 nights. We would highly recommend Riad Nezha. and Morocco Overland as tour company!!!

My Family and I spent almost three weeks in Morocco with our guide Brahim from moroccooverland.com tour company He's very knowledgable!!Riad Nezha was, by far, the best Riad we stayed in while touring the country. Mohamed met us at the door after a 6 hour ride and got us to our room to get cleaned up and comfortable for the evening. We spent the most amazing evening under the stars after an expertly guided camel trek. Not too short, but long enough to feel a bit sore while we sat down for tajine and conversation. The stay in the dunes was comfortable and eye opening. Mohamed answered every question we had. His English was impeccable, as well as his French, Berber and bits of Spanish and German thrown in to show us the extent of his Riad experience.

The swimming pool was excellent . . . especially after our return from a night out in the desert sleeping in a Berber tent (an adventure that should not be missed! . . . it's worthwhile enduring the camel ride for an hour and a half!).

I highly recommand Riad Nezha you have to stay here to feel the real Morocco whilst relaxing and enjoying the dunes,and Morocco Overland Travels. as a great way to see Morocco.

We stayed for 2 nights in the amazing Riad Nezha, arriving just before sunset, after a long drive our trip advisor from moroccooverland.com tour company reminded us to bring along our swimming suit to the desert,We were puzzled at that time. When we look outside from our room, a blue swimming pool in front of us The first night we spent in the Riad itself, and the second was spent in a desert tent, in a trip organized by the Riad.

On our arrival, we were met with a very warm welcome by the Riad's staff, including a courtesy mint tea. During our stay we were the only guests in Riad Nezha, so we received a very personal attention, making us feel relaxed and very much at home. We could have dinner and breakfast anytime we wanted and we could choose if we wanted to eat in the restaurant, in the terrace, by the pool or even in a moroccan tent!

The room was very clean. The showers were excelent and very relaxing after a long day of driving or a sandy night in the desert.


Surprisingly they offered free wifi internet connection was very good and worked greatly even in the terrace. It was the best wi-fi we had during our whole trip to Morocco.
They were also very kind to let us keep our room during the night we spent in the desert, so we could leave our bags and also have a nice shower once we returned from the desert.The night in the desert was an amazing experience and one of the highlights of our days Morocco trip.

Overall, it was the best place we stayed in during our trip, not only for the Riad itself, which was great, but also because of the service and attention provided by the staff, which was excellent in every way.

I highly recommend Riad Nezha as one of the best place to stay around Merzouga and Morocco Overland Travels as great way to see Morocco.

Everyone always says that Riad Nezha owners made you feel like part of their family, but this is the first place I have ever stayed where I really felt like a long awaited guest visiting the family. I do think if we had stayed a few days longer, Brahim woud have invited us to have dinner with his wife and the rest of the kids. Aside from the warm service though, they are also running a top shelf tourist destination here. We had an amazing trek by camel into the desert.Their camp is very private and astonishingly comfortable. The food was good both at camp and at the hotel. While we were out in the desert, we got to keep a whole room at the inn for our stuff and the rooms were very nice. Hot water was plentiful for our showers.Brahim is an astute businessman and was constantly checking with us to see if everything was to our liking. We had missed our first night there due to car trouble and he did not charge us a cancellation fee even though we cancelled at the last minute. I think I might have offended the caravan guides when I tipped them, as they clearly did not expect anything at the end of our trip. All in all

If we ever go back to that part of Morocco, we'd definitely go and stay at the Riad Nezha again and we would look forward to the warm hospitality which made our stay really memorable
