Kasbah Xaluca Maadid

Resort in Erfoud

A flashy pool-party scene straight out of music videos, only with more kids. Junior suites come with fossilised marble bedsteads and mineral lamps; suites are frilly, with chintz dust ruffles on four-poster beds. Desert travellers appreciate the spa, but kids head for the pool and minigolf course. It’s 5km before Erfoud on the right.
