We spent the last 2 days of a Moroccan trip at Kasbah Bab Ourika. First off, every single person who works there is just thoughtful, kind and will go out of their way to make sure that you have whatever you might want. The rooms are very nice. The lunch buffet on a saturday was really one of the best...

Kasbah bab ourika was a delight from the start. We were warmly welcomed and properly introduced and made to feel at home. The grounds are stunning, as are the views. Garden is immaculate. The service was impeccable and food delicious. Aubergine dinner dish was superb. Berber egg for breakfast was the best I've had in Morocco. We thoroughly enjoyed our...

The views and rooms at Bab Ourika are truly spectacular, and very unique. Unfortunately, the food at dinner and breakfast were totally underwhelming. And the service in the dining room was really poor. The waiters would take their time in doing the smallest things, and then disappear totally. People were getting up to go search for their servers. Also, note...

Beautiful and charming hotel, simple luxury , nothing over the top. Very good food, which is important considering Ourika does seem to have many decent options. The hotel´s views are great. Our room was very spacious, but lack a bit of storage space - no major flaw for a 2-night stay. We went on hikes and bike rides, all very...

I have had lunch various times over at least 5 years at KBO. Setting is stunning, staff very friendly, but food is always slightly disappointing. Moroccan buffet was not flavourful at all yesterday. Shame as Moroccan dishes should be the highlight . . .

We stayed for 5 nights in a deluxe room which had the most beautiful views. We had such a relaxing time. There are so many activities to do, but equally there are so many beautiful nooks to hide away in and relax. All the staff at the Kasbah are friendly, kind and helpful. And the food was totally delicious every...

Sitting atop a ridge overlooking the valley with local village directly below, this is a fabulous location. You can see up and down the valley with several othernvillages, minarets and the river running through. The hotel is great, a little rustic in terms of finish and the rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The menu is quite limited but...

This Riad is indeed exquisite. The new construction in a traditional style with beautiful antiques and a great layout offers privacy as well as communal spaces. Truly beautiful grounds with pool and gardens. The restaurant serves all meals which are just ok. There is a bar. The several WiFi networks work very well. Water is hot. All the necessities are...

This places deserves this highest rating and we loved the 4 days we stayed here. It is not cheap but worth every dirham. The food is lovely and menus changes on a daily basis. The room (Garden Deluxe) was very nice although the sink was smelly and required constant closure of the strainer. Although this is a place to relax...

Arrival here is like entering a place of complete peace and relaxation. One is greeted, luggage dealt with by the lovely staff, and seated with refreshment on the fabulous huge terrace overlooking the mountain range, within an instant upon arriving. No forms to fill in, No fuss, just calm quiet efficiency. And then sit. Take in the views and feel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bab Ourika perches majestically on a hilltop at the apex of the Ourika Valley, guarding the gateway to the snow-capped Atlas Mountains – yet it is only 45 minutes from Marrakech’s International airport. With 360 degree panoramic views, this innovative new hotel receives warm sunlight all day, ending in spectacular sunsets. From its unique eyrie-like position it offers a birds eye view of the Atlas, of traditional Berber villages and of the lush river valley below. The Kasbah is one of the most eco-friendly hotels in Morocco; constructed principally from rammed earth, the traditional Berber building technique, it seems almost to have grown out of the rocks beneath. The thick walls provide such good insulation that air-conditioning is unnecessary. Solar panels provide hot water for the hotel and and the underfloor heating in the dining and bar area. Soon a biodigester will provide electricity and compost not only for the hotel but also for the village below. ... more   less
