Le Drom Blanc was an excellent choice for us in M'hamid. Away from the main road by a short drive, Le Drom Blanc was a quiet oasis that incorporated the desert surroundings into its design.

We arrived to M'hamid from Marrakesh on a 9-hr bus ride, and we were greeted at the white 'Le Drom' Blanc' sign on the street by the driver (make sure you stop the bus before reaching the main town). After a short 3-minute ride on a 4x4, we arrived at the guesthouse and were greeted by Maguy, an amazing French woman who built this establishment and tends to it lovingly. Maguy had predicted our needs and had already prepared a FANTASTIC meal for us. After a long bus ride, that was a very comforting welcome.

Maguy also organized our visit to the Chigaga dunes to perfection, using the best guides who set up the most fantastic, comfortable, and inviting camp in the Erg Chigaga dunes (Z'bar Travel).

Upon our return from the dunes, Maguy had not only prepared yet another wonderfully delicious meal for us, she had helped me purchase a big bag of Moroccan spices on local prices that I had inquired about on a previous night. Also, my partner had eyes on a Touareg knife in town, and Maguy actually drove us back to the shop and helped us assess its true value and barter for us.

Overall, I can't say more great things about Le Drom Blanc! Pros include:
*The ABSOLUTE BEST TAGINES we ever had in all of Morocco, truly (and her breakfasts are amazing too - you can't beat fresh homemade dates jam!!!)
*The location and vibe of Le Drom Blanc was special - it was away from the main hotel strip, and was a rustic and serene contrast to the bigger establishments
*The breakfast area, garden and the grounds were beautiful! We spent a quiet afternoon after our trip to the desert just laying in the sun by the water fountain
*Maguy's amazing hospitality, her knowledge of local customs and cultures, and her willingness to go the extra mile for her guests

The only minor complaints I have about the place is that the room amenities were bare and the room and shower were never particularly warm (we were there in the winter) - but really, being in the middle of the desert, who needs more than the basics inside the room anyway. Also, the price of the stay was definitely higher than other places in Morocco - but this can be attributed to us being at the end of the road in Morocco, literally, and there's really only one reason travelers come here so prices are expected to be higher.

Overall, if you're someone who seeks something special and slightly more secluded and different, Le Drom Blanc will definitely meet your expectations, if not exceed them! It was really a magical stay for us.

Room Tip: There are 4 guestrooms inside the house and several bivouacs outside. We stayed in the house because we thought we'd be cold at night (we went in January); but after looking at the bivouacs outside the next day, they would have been very comfortable stays too. Maguy was converting a few of the bivouacs to outside bungalows at the time we were there. You may want to check those out as they would be half way between a room and a bivouac.

Le Drom Blanc is situated 1km off the main road to Hamid in an oasis at the edge of the sahara. The French host Maguy has built up a little paradise consisting of a central house with rooms around a big inner courtyard, all made of adobe. There are also some tents with adobe walls and fabric as the touareg use it. There is also an adobe wall around paradise to protect it from desert storms. It is a great experience to sleep in an adobe building. Sleep is very deep.

Maguy welcomed us warmly. She brought us in touch with other guests and organized a trip to the desert with an overnight stay in the huge sanddune named Chegaga. Everything was relaxed, perfect and free of the hustle that often annoys you in Morocco.

We staid only for two nights, which I regret. We should defintely have staid much longer!
