Still conserving their tradition with some extras to comfort everyone, there hospitality has made this our main stopping place to do our solidarity raids in the area with the help of Mobarek as II have said before I know since he was a young 11 year old lad.

I was able to spend a decent amount of time at Auberge Takojt, and I can one hundred percent vouch for its quality. A lot of hotels and kasbahs in the area claim to be located "right on the dunes", but Takojt really is. From the auberge it's just a short walk over scree to the start of the Erg... More

The experience at the auberge is solid, all around, with good food, friendly, reliable staff who are all from the local area, meaning you have the opportunity for some nice insight into the culture. I did the 3-hour (each way) trek into the desert berber camp and have a new-found respect for people who use camels as transportation... Just make... More

We visited Auberge Takojt in early October. It was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. The staff were hospitable and attentive. The food was amazing. We really enjoyed the quiet, peaceful evenings of listening to the guys play their traditional Berber music. We took the camel ride out to the oasis and stayed there for a night,... More

My friend and I returned to Auberge Takojt in March, a year after our first visit, with high expectations - and we were not disappointed. The hotel's welcoming exterior beckoned to us like open arms, and once inside we quickly settled in to familiar, comfortable surroundings. The hotel's owner, Mobarek, is personally invested in the quality of every guest's experience,... More

We met many wonferful people during our stay in Morocco but Marie and her staff were by far among the very best.

Stayed here as part of our tour across Sahara and Atlas in Sept 13. The place is rustic, clean and charming, reflecting the life in the desert. Great service - very attentive, pleasant, friendly and kind. Great terrace with amazing views of the dessert - we ended up sleeping in the terrace instead!!
