Dar Kamal Chaoui, Guesthouse/hotel, is in the quiet village of Bhalil , 3 km from Sefrou & 24 km south of Fez, Immouzzer & Ifrane, and close to the Cedar Forest. The Inn is beautiful, with a rooftop terrace, folk art on display and incredibly comfortable furnishings. The meals were delicious, local recipes, served family-style. I felt like I was...

I stayed at this guest house after a long trip to Morocco for rest and relaxation. I sure got exactly that! The guest house itself is so lovely! It has wonderful decorations, beautiful rooms with a comfy bed and warm shower, lastly a really nice terrace to sit on and enjoy the view. The city is small and slow moving,...

Very comfortable place with nice rooms and a great host in a unique town. I highly recommend a hike with Kamal, as he can tell you a lot about the surroundings of Bhalil and it is a nice way to interact with its inhabitants.

Five TripAdvisor points aren't enough to express my appreciation for Kamal's wonderful hospitality. As an individual, he is open, gregarious and supportive. A native Moroccan returned from many years living in France, he has both a deep commitment to his own culture and an understanding of how outsiders might approach it. He has worked hard to establish his guest house...

We spent two nights at Dar Kamal Chaoui Dec 28&29. We wanted a change from the pressure and confined spaces in the Fes Medina and we're searching for open space and fresh air in the Middle Atlas Mtns. We contacted Kamal (guide and owner) online and discussed logistcs for two treks and lodging in Bhalil. He picked us up at...

We chose this place because we needed somewhere as a waypoint between Merzouga and Chefchaouen, and were delighted we wound up here. Kamal is a whirling dervish of information and community activism, and we were delighted by his spirit and desire to improve the lives of people in Bhalil. The guest house is beautiful, with amazing wood craft. Very comfortable....

Dar Kamal Chaoui is a not a typically Moroccan place (do we sense some anthroposophic influences?) in what might be a very typical Moroccan village. Spend a few nights there to be between the locals. Kamal is the most forthcoming, knowledgable and sweet host, and very passionate -about most anything. If he rambles on, just tell him, he will appreciate...
