Welcome to the website of Auberge Café du Sud. We are proud to be online since 2003, being the first hotel in Merzouga region to have an online presence. The history of Café du Sud goes back to 1986 when we set a tend near the dunes and served tea to the very few tourists arriving at our premisses. Often people asked us for a place to sleep, so eventually, we built a basic camp, with desert tents so that people would spend the night.

A long time passed since the ’80s, and our quality standard got a tremendous improvement and we now offer you 36 fully equipped rooms, a swimming pool, and a fine quality restaurant. Our diverse desert activities include camel trekking, ATV quad bikes, 4×4 tour, and spa.

Explaining our concept of receiving clients, reflects our way of living. We are part of the desert, born in the desert, and the desert, in the end, is part of us. We created an environment that blends with local traditional architecture, our music reflects our centenary heritage, and our approach to nature and tourist is valued in preserving the environment and providing excellent service.
