Erfoud

Erfoud

The Hotel Chergui in Erfoud, Morocco sits on the edge of the northern Sahara Dessert.  The compound is complete with a courtyard, swimming pool and entertainment areas.  Walking into the lobby is a “Wow.”
The feeling is one of being at the end of the world in the most pleasant place possible.  The food was delicious, the bar friendly and inviting and the rooms spacious.  I could have stayed there much longer.  What I love most is the open air concept, doors and windows open and light rays beaming on the tile floors.  When I left the hotel I traveled by 4-wheel vehicle into the dessert, rode camels and camped in the sand in a tent with Berber rugs.  Whether the hotel set the mood or the dessert captured my pleasure doesn’t matter.  The Hotel Chergui was perfect.
