To the board: Referring the reader just to hotel La Chance amounts to unfair advertizing. It easer should be removed or other references added. Wikitravel is supposed to be unbiased source. There are many reasonable hotels in Merzouga. Even if you decide to stick to those with websites and eamils there are a few that are not any worse than La Cahnce, e.g. hotel Sahara that is cheaper and provides better desert stays http://www.auberge-sahara-merzouga.com/ ([email protected]), Ksar-Bicha ([email protected]) etc. Staff at all of these hotels respond to emails in english, french and German. They all proviude information. In fact it looks like they provide better information and more realistic prices.
Even though Elena Hall, the owner of the La chance, is an American (or maybe because of that) she quotes the least realistic prices and provides the least interesting responses to the request. She is least willing to customize iteneraries, hotels, etc. So I see it as unfair to post her address in the article.
