La Rose du Desert is a small property, ideally located just outside the city of Erfoud in an excellent location for exploring the Moroccan Sahara. As you would expect in this remote part of Morocco, there's not a huge choice of satellite TV stations or room service options!

This is a family-run small hotel with plenty of charm: clean and comfortable, it's a great place to break your journey before discovering the wonders of the dunes.

The hotel offers simple but nicely appointed rooms, a comfortable lounge/restaurant area, and an attractive swimming pool with plenty of space for enjoying either sun or shade.


La Rose du Desert offers six standard rooms, four bungalows and two suites. The suites are particularly attractive, many feature four poster beds. All rooms have a small terrace outside.


The menu here is limited but the Moroccan tagines are genuine and tasty!
