We spent one night here and it was a good break in our trip. When we had an a/c problem in our room the efficient staff immediately moved us to a new room. The room was good (bed standard Moroccan hard) and the shower room was nice. We walked about 5 mins from the hotel to watch the sunset over...

Staying here was the best decision we made. The room was great, breakfast excellent and the people were super friendly! The pool was lovely and dinner was excellent, we didn't have to decide, they cooked and it was superb!

Great place. Team relaxed and very pleasant making you feel at home without interference. Desert feeling with modern amenities (air conditioning, pool etc to face the 45C without any discomfort ) Rooms nice and clean, good food for dinner and breakfast. Desert tour was fantastic with cultural heritage, lifestyle, animals, dunes and sports Highly recommended

Stayed here for 1 night whilst on an Explore tour. Arrived in a sandstorm and felt like we were entering a foreign legion outpost! Attractive large pool and terrace area (sadly no time to enjoy it) with central reception and restaurant. Bedrooms were in courtyards, all on 1 level, rooms very spacious with modern tiled shower cubicles. Extremely quiet apart...

Bed was a bit hard, had to change rooms because of cold water and repair works on hot water supply. Very nice swimming pool and good dinner. Close to the dunes, so good location. And lot's of parking space, which was excellent since we were driving.

Like the previous reviewer I came to this hotel on an Explore tour (Highlights of Morocco - recommended!) and I absolutely loved this place. It's simple but beautiful. Created in the style of a Casbah, it blends in with its desert surroundings and has an interior courtyard with a beautiful pool. Everything was immaculately clean. You could have eaten your...

We have just spent 10 days in Morocco on an Explore Worldwide adventure trip. We spent one night here and wished we had spent more time here. This is a small run hotel with lots of character. It was clean and comfortable and if you had time you can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool. We ate in the restaurant at...

Sitting in this hotel now a having enjoyed a good meal, with my motorcycle parked outside the door of my upgraded room. Perfect - it doesn't get much better.

“We opted for a suite, with a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, bathroom and lounge area. The evenings in December are very cold but we had the heating on and the rooms became warm after a short while.”
