Great hotel in Erfoud. Very comfortable with pools indoors and outdoors, and designed and furnished in traditional Berber style. Bedrooms are very spacious with a couple of couches to relax on after a hard days camel riding.

... has it that a poor lady and child weren’t offered help by an affluent local family and as a consequence they were buried under mounds of sand, producing the erg (sand dune).
