In the last dozen years or so, guesthouses in Merzouga (offering desert excursions) apparently have exploded. I was a bit confounded over all the alternatives and not sure I'd made the right choice. But my fears proved groundless. Lahassan, the second eldest of the Seggaoui brothers, is a charismatic and charming host. Our room was large, clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated, and the public spaces were even more impressive. The desert excursion was just what we wanted. And the meals (two breakfasts (included) and one dinner (not)) at the guesthouse were very good. Tired of driving, we opted not to take the 4x4 half-day tour, but we did enjoy the 2-hour walking tour with younger brother Omar. It takes some effort to get to Merzouga (we drove), but the hospitality and exquisite beauty of the dunes repaid that amply.
