Auberge Camping Sahara Merzouga Reviews
Impressive, Drifting chain of sand dunes... Mar 08, 2011
This hotel based on the recommendation by Lonely Planet and its location right by the dunes, as I wanted to be able to have walks there on my own without doing the whole camel tour, and I was very happy with our choice! It has the perfect location right by the dunes (you literally walk right out into them!) and it's quite easy to find by following the signs, and no problem to get to in a small rental car. I was glad I stayed in Hassi Labied and not Merzouga itself as the touts seemed much more aggressive there (I only went once, and before we had even stopped the car I had people trying to sell us camel treks).
At the hotel absolutely no attempt was made to sell me anything, which was much appreciated, although some kids did start following us around outside to "guide" me, but in general we got to have lovely walks in the dunes at sunset all by ourselves. Hassi Labied is a tiny town but you do have a couple of shops if you get desperate for souvenirs, or if you want a nice frozen bottle of water and a snack to bring with you on a day trip.
