Maison Merzouga was an amazing stay in Morroco. The rooms which we stayed in were very nice, especially the air-conditioners!The owner and his brother-in-law (who was our guide when we went to the desert to find fossils , were so kind and were great with kids.The black dessert expedition included many interesing details about desert life which you could simply just never discover on your own---visit to gnaua musicians in the village, palmerie and desert irrigation system, and and an impromptu visit made on our request with a nomad Berber family.
The hotel is CLEAN, rooms very spacious and the pool a joy in the sweltering desert heat. There are extraordinary aged Berber carpets on display in an otherwise pleasant surroundings.
The camel trip with Omar was just what we hoped for: a great overnight camp, amazing ride ito the mystical desert, and guidance by an indigenous, quiet, yet very personable Berber guide.He cooked a great dinner for us and caugh salamanders for the children to keep as short term pets. He knew abouth the stars and calmedmy childrens fears about the desert dung beetles.
Overall, highly recommended place here they will make you feel at home with their warm hospitality.
My only suggestion for imprviement would be to use more fresh herbs and spices when it came to the food we ate in the hotel. Maybe a woman's touch would have been welcome there ;)
