“Base camp to explore Erg Chebbi”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

First, the scenery was just beautiful (about one-half my favorites pictures from our 10 days in Morocco were in & around Yasmina). Service was wonderful. Food was excellent. Rooms were nice. And, did I mention the beautiful scenery? Make sure you're there in late afternoon and sunset. And, get up early for sunrise. Walk the sand dunes. And enjoy views from the terrace as the scene changes around you.

We took an overnight camel trek and enjoyed our night in the desert. Again, excellent food and our needs were well taken care of. Thank you to Youssef and our camel man, Adi.

If you want to enjoy the wonderful dunes of Erg Chebbi in a relaxing and comfortable place, with good food and very friendly staff, Yasmina is the place to be! Enjoy a good breakfast on the terrace facing the dunes before heading off for a camel ride!! I had a great time there!!

Room Tip: The roms around the swimming pool are best!

We found this place by chance and we were very pleased by the warm welcome. The service was very friendly and the food delicious. We took the night excursion to the dunes and on the way back we decided to walk on our own through the desert back to the kasbah : MAGICAL !!
We would definitely come back to this hotel on our next trip to the desert. Thank you Youssef for the great time !!!

My wife and I stayed here for one night in mid-October as part of a 4-day Marrakesh to Fez overland all inclusive tour. The location is very special - away from other properties and next to the very picturesque Erg Chhebi sand dunes. We also stayed for one night in a beduin tent after a one hour camel trek which was a great experience.

The staff of the hotel was extremely friendly and a entertaining. Their English was excellent and they worked hard to keep us satisfied. Dinner and breakfast was good.

The rooms are bit dated but in decent condition. I can't compare with other hotels in the area, nor can I comment on price or value as it was part of an all-inclusive tour.

Overall our stay was excellent and didn't have any problems.

A good hotel, kasbah style on the doorstep of the desert! An authentic moroccan styled accomodation with a vast aray of rooms! the rooom we had on our stay was basic, the beds are rock hard with solid bases beware of your toes, they do not budge! The bed sheets felt sandy,the shower was scalding hot and had a leak that scalded my back. the pressure was not great and had to hold the shower head. The pool was small but refreshing after a long day in the desert. The hotel offers camel and 4x4 sunset/rise rides.Be warned the leaders will want to sell you things that are much cheaper in the town!
The staff were very friendly. Food was not too great as the the choice was limited. No real othere attractions around other than the desert.

Room Tip: The rooms were very different so be sure to ask for the style you want!
