    Would definitely recommend everyone to stay there. The bus stops just 5 minutes walking away, the desert is 10 minutes walking, the staff is very nice and they provide a delicious breakfast. I'm a solo female traveler and felt totally safe there :)

    This place is the hidden secret of the Merzouga Desert. Tamariste itself is a site to be seen. The whole building is nicely done respecting the culture of the place. There are gorgeous views of the dunes, which are located immediately in front of the hotel. Everything from the staff, to the tour guides and the camp site was an experience like no other. Plus the food (and there is lots of it)... delicious. Definitely will be back again.

    My stay at Tamariste was very pleasant. My room was nice and comfortable, and incredible value for money. I liked that there was no pressure to go on a desert tour or anything. I eventually did go on a camel sunset trip, and the guide was very relaxed and friendly. When we were up in the dunes, he just let me walk around to take photos. I could take as much time as I wanted. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was good, especially for the price. I would certainly recommend staying there!!!

    Best value for money out there. We did have issues with WiFi and one night the water didn't work. Also staff spoke no English and had trouble following Google Translate. But overall the location is perfect - a 20min walk to the dunes. Atmosphere is on point as well. Definitely recommend it if you are on a budget.

    This is located in a very small village outside of Merzouga. The only thing to do is go in the desert. The rooms were extremely hot, hotter than outside. The man is very nice and helpful!

    It’s hard to be too picky when you’re on the doorstep of the Sahara but this hostel feels like you’re alone in the middle of nowhere. Luckily the owner’s sister is super kind and welcoming. The guy working at the reception when the owner isn’t around seems like it’s a bother to help you. Maybe it’s because he doesn’t speak English. Kind of eerie But they did their best to make me feel comfortable. Difficult to get to town from here so I felt a bit stranded until the owner kindly gave me ride

    Do not recommend for solo female travellers. Staff made me VERY uncomfortable. Good location for the dunes, Merzouga town better for onward travel and tours.
