Great hotel in Hassi Labied, which is MUCH cleaner and nicer than Merzouga. Brothers Said and Brahim treated me like family. Riad is clean, rooms quiet and very well appointed. They served me supper and breakfast on the huge terrance. It was fun relaxing on the tables in front too, enjoying the cool of the evening. Dunes and palmerie an easy stroll away. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful experience staying in this family owned riad. The whole family is warm and welcoming, making you feel right at home the moment you walk in the door. We enjoyed delicious home cooked meals, beautiful, clean rooms and friendly, welcoming hosts. The riad also has a beautiful rooftop terrace where you can enjoy the starts and a breathtaking view of the dunes.The family provides the PERFECT place to spend your time in the desert!!

Our best stay experience filled with a difference, a warm family welcome , walk in the village with the local berbers, climbing the dunes to watch the sunset and Dinner under the stars with one of the best veg tangine and harari soup we had on the entire trip in morocco, made by the owner himself in a traditional berber way. Riad is well maintained with traditional moroccon feel.Thanks to the family to give us such a memorable day in desert.Simply superb.

Great experience staying here in the family house..All the people in the riad were very helpful and the younger brother of the owner Yousef gave a very nice trip of the village and the merzouga dunes for the sunset as a welcome gesture. The rooms are good and maintain their traditional looks...For the price we paid its worth a stay to experience a wonderful traditional stay and you have beautiful view of the sand dunes..
The elder brother..the owner cooked excellent dinner for us. Its one of the best vegetarian tanjines we had here..and cooked in proper berber traditional way.

Thanks...again...

Our stay at Riad Aicha was the absolute highlight of our two week trip around Morocco. From the moment we arrived to when we left, we felt totally at home and relaxed. Said (& family) couldn't do enough for us and always made us feel like part of the family! We ate at the Riad on the first night and it was simply superb - home cooking at its very best! Top-class breakfast too! Thanks, Siad, for organising a camel ride and night in the dessert - it was magical & unforgettable. We really do hope to be back again sometime!

We arrived at casablanca airport on 4 March 2012 and rented a mini car (i suggest to rent a car via internet is cheaper than directly from the airport offices). We drove to Meknes and then to Fes.We spent 2 nights there and then drove to Hassi Labied where the guys from Riad Aicha were waiting for us. They are very friendly and their family Riad is very beautiful.We travelled into the desert with our dromidas (some kind of camels which exist in morocco) and our guider Mombarak who is an amazing person. We spent 2 amazing nights in the desert. The sunrise and sunset are fantastic there, full of colors and privacy. Hasan, Yusef, Aziz and Momparak are fantastic guys. They played drums for us and we enjoyed the time there.Food was delicious and the sleep in the tents comfortable.we suggest you stay 2 or more nights in the desert to feel the vibe and go to meet the families who live there permanently.After the trip in the desert we took our car and we drove to ouarzazate and marrakesh.the whole trip was amazing, the road was fine, there were a lot of signs and drive within the speed limit.

thanks Riad Aicha...
