This hotel was booked by our tour guide so I don't know how much it cost. The hotel and grounds were decorated like a Hollywood Indiana Jones set, including the rooms. You can live the fantasy and still get room service. After 3 days in the desert dunes, we were ready for pampering and we got it. Hot water, comfy...

everything is fantastic about this resort . They were very welcoming and had excellent spread of dinner and breakfast. They even gave us turbans to wear when we were headed to the desert safari. they played music at night next to the bornfire which was an awesome experience.

Only the front part of the hotel, in front of the dunes, is nice, including the swimming pool IF clean. The rear part and the rooms are not nice and not well maintained. The fact that IS a Kasbah IS nice but other Kasbah are better decorated. Food IS Not good. The night in the desert was a nightmare and...

Wonderful accommodation and facilities along with great staff who manage to provide an amazing Saharan experience. The auberge is placed literally in the middle of nowhere - if you drive there by night as we did, you feel that you leave behind any sign of civilization. It has a reasonably sized outdoor pool and terrace with a fantastic view over...

Fabulous location. Reasonably comfortable with fairly basic food. Very friendly waiters and staff. direct access to the dunes from the front door. Extensive desert activities available. Inexpensive. Location makes this a great intro to the desert

Our experience in Auberge du Sud was amazing. The staff is very friendly and can speak all the languages in this world. The food was delicious and very well made. We had opportunity to stay in 3 different rooms and every room is different with very nice moroccan decoration. The swimming pool was perfect.

This is really amazing. This auberge is so close to the sand dunes that it is almost possible touching them from the pool. we were very happy to be here. Although said earlier it is a throughly amazing experience being so close to the dunes in such a wonderful hotel. The kids ( 11,9, 7) loved the fact that the...

we found this place because it was recommended to us by friends who had stayed here before. The pool has excellent views on the sand dunes, and you can book all of your desert trips at the reception. The staff was friendly and the room we stayed in, clean. The food we tasted was absolutely delicious, and when we spent...

Well, the hype was there from other reviews: desert dunes, the night sky filled with stars, camels trekking you I to e desert to a wonderful overnight tenting experience: and that much was completely satisfying. The take-of and return point, however, left much to be desired. While the desert camp was luxurious, clean, the food excellent and the staff friendly,...

We loved to be there in the desert BUT Noisy moto quad cars were driving just few meters from us (and from other guests) while we just wanted to watch sunset and hear the sounds of the dessert. Next time I will look for hotel / Auberge that does not offer this kind of cars or offer them far from...
