Stayed in Laayoune in January for a few days. Stayed at
Hotel Al Massira
Avenue De La Meque, Laayoune, Laayoune, Morocco 70000
A sanctuary after driving south along the coast road.
There is not a lot of choice of decent hotels in town and I recommend this one as being modern, clean and with half decent food. This is one of the favorite hotels of the UN peacekeepers.
I only passed one checkpoint coming into town and one leaving town heading south, plus one near the airport.
Enjoy the trip and take about 30 fiches with you, you'll need them on the coast road and a few other places.
