After enjoying the Atlas Mountains and climbing Mount Toubkal, we travelled east to Ait ben Haddou, and decided that the Sahara should be next on the list of our 3 week driving tour, searching for Morocco adventure. A quick look at Trip Advisor helped us to easily select Hotel Kasbah Azalay. The town of M'Hamid is rustic at best, and steeped in the traditions of an ancient Morocco that time seems to have left alone - which adds all the more to the charm of following the ancient caravan trails, and to seek out the magical Sahara. With a decent iPhone map, we found Azalay reasonable easily, and when we drove up, we were pleased with our selection.
Within minutes of arriving, we were easily checked in, taken to our rooms, and then went back to the check in to discuss a 4 wheel tour to the Sahara. They immediately organized a tour to leave at 1:30pm in the afternoon the next day, to travel 60kms into the desert to find the spectacular Sahara dunes. The hotel catered to our evening meal, which was a wonderful tangine, and the morning meal was equally appealing. During our first evening, we were warmly greeted by the Hotel's owner, Julian Vallecamp (sp?) and some his friends who were there for a month, doing walks in the desert and on weight loss programs. Julian was a charming gentleman, formerly fro Barcelona, who had brought a Spanish influence to both the construction, and the meals. The food was wonderful! We met some of Julian's friends, and were treated to an amazing evening of storytelling, and drinking too much wine and beer. (We drank, but they were fasting!)
Our tour the next day, which was about 140 Euros, and split 3 ways, was probably the highlight of the trip. We arrived at the dunes, stayed till sundown, and travelled back under the stars. I wish we had slept under the stars it was so amazing. The photos I've attached of the dunes will tell the story of our journey there.
Our rooms were large, air conditioned, and amply comfortable. If I was doing the Sahara again this is the place I would come, and I would get them to organize it.

Room Tip: The wifi is limited, but works in the lobby. Be patient, and take your coffee early in the morning there.

The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and welcoming in this good hotel in an isolated town. The pool is epic (15m square) in a cool, shady building providing a much needed opportunity to stretch limbs after a long day's travel. However compared to the Berber hospitality we had experienced at other b&b's this hotel left us disappointed - perhaps due to the low occupancy in November.

We came in from the desert in search of an oasis .. which is exactly what the Azalay is. It's well posh, but so very welcoming. We showered and swam in the most luxurious of swimming pools, and then enjoyed a beautifully presented lunch with a cheeky glass of red wine in the garden. I dream of returning, perchance to stay

We stayed here in M'Hamid with friends for two nights as we wanted to visit the Sahara sand dunes in a less touristy area. The rooms were huge, comfortable and well serviced. We were provided with upstairs room will large balconies offering views of the frontier town and the hotel complex. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. The staff took orders hours before we ate to ensure the tagines had adequate cooking time. The staff were excellent and offered advice when requested and arranged for our desert excursion. A very pleasant overall experience.

It was a perfect choice after roaming around in the Sahara for three days. Very clean, spacious and beautiful place to stay and rejuvenate for next Morocco adventure, which was a long drive to Atlas mountains for us.
Good food and courteous staff.
