We stayed here as part of a small group tour hosted by Mad about Morocco. One night at the oasis hotel and another night in the well appointed camel tents. The grounds at the oasis hotel reminds one of rooms situated in a botanical garden. The pool area is large by any standards ... unusual for an oasis. Dinner offered... More

If you agree a desert is supposed to be quiet, this is the place for you. The hotel has to be among to top alternatives in the area for luxury and services, but with the advantage of being removed from main hotel area, some 20km away from Marzouga´s centre ville. Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated, not necessarely new, but... More

This is a very nice place with a beautiful pool you can lounge by and great food. We also did a night in their desert tents including a camel ride for sunset which I think were the best tents available due to their secluded/separate location allowing for stargazing without light pollution and no other camps in sight. The other camps... More

Anyone who travels knows that if you are thinking of going to somewhere remote like Sahara you dont expect 5* accomodation. In its way Derkaoua does give you 5* but in experience, you will have travelled a long way to get here and it is a very welcoming sight to see this little oasis. The rooms are weel laid out... More

Overall, our experience was great. I've heard from several sources that this is the best place in the area and I believe that to be the case. It certainly is a world apart from the numerous hotels we stopped into for a bite to eat or wifi or a restroom -- all those had tour buses and were far larger... More

When we arrived there were a few other couples around the pool, but after we cam back fro the sunset over the dunes camel-ride experience there were no other guests, which felt very strange.

We stayed here in late September, perhaps a bit too close to summer. There are some very nice, and some not so pleasant, things about Auberge Dar Kerkaoua, and rather than extol the romantic setting (which it is) maybe better to examine pros and cons so the new visitor knows what expect. On the positive side, the enclosed "Dar" is... More

The accommodation was spacious, clean and comfortable. There was a hamman which was very relaxing, also a swimming pool which I am sure would be great to use when the weather is warmer. The... More

“Tent camp is basic. There is properly made bed with very firm mattress and pillow adequate blankets. Lighting is by candlelight both outside and inside tent. Very clean community bathroom with tile floors and tent walls and blanket door. Sink is basin with water from copper bucket with spout. and small mirror. Showers are available at the camp. Tents could be claustrophobic to some. We left the blanket door up all night which was fine.”
