What can I say that has not already been said? How about this:
They should get a ten star rating.
Here is an important thing, it rally is an oasis in Morocco. Ali is a great guy, and he really gets the idea of not pressuring you to buy or do stuff. So we wanted to do the overnight camel trip and then stay another night… fine with him. No trying to sell us a four-wheel drive hiking expedition. Later we were talking and I told him how my wife had wanted to do just a little shopping, nothing big, maybe get one scarf or one silver trinket thing… so he called up a friend at a store around the corner, and the guy totally just let us look and browse, no pressure, no hassle, and no disappointment when we only bought three little things.
If you have been to Morocco, you will appreciate that story.
The guesthouse is everything you see on the website, everything that you read on TripAdvisor, and more. Prices are fair and reasonable, service is excellent, there is nothing bad to say. We have travelled extensively for six years now, two months a year, and this is one of the top places we have ever stayed. We could have spent a week here. The pool is a big plus in the 50° heat.
You just can’t go wrong here. Let them book your camel trip. You won’t regret it.
One note on finding the guesthouse. This place goes by two names. You will be looking for Maison Merzouga, but it also goes by the name of Seggaoui Family Guest House.
So just drop down Route 13 from Erfoud heading to Merzouga. About 2KM before Merzouga you will see some signs, and a paved road going to the left (towards the dunes). The blue sign you will look for says Maison Merzouga.
