50EUR package gives you a private bath tub style jacuzzi for 20min, then relaxation in a room full of biting flies, next being hosed down by a drill instructor woman for a minute, followed by some time in a 'vaporization' room (steam room) and a plunge in a round pool with nice warm water. The 2h session finishes with a... More

The drive to and from here is magical. Amidst the mid Atlas Mountains you'll see shepherds tending their flock and the king's massive private farm. Inside the "new" spa there is one giant pool that is sorely overdue for a paint and tile job. But the water is hot and salty. There is one long steam room with 4 chairs.... More

I absolutely enjoyed this unique time to blend with the Moroccan women of every age that were cleaning, bathing, and being scrubbed at my recent visit there.....I felt exhilarated and happy, the women would break into prayer and then they would zagareet (ululating or thrilling the tongue), I joined them and did my best zagareet, and they were very appreciative....Me...

Great sensation, its hot water with minerals and sulfur.... It's great for the bones and skin, after the bath, you'll feel some itching but apparently it's normal because your skin is absorbing the mineral.... It has been proven that it does amazing things to the body.

I was taken by locals to the public baths not the tourist western style baths. You have to walk down about 500 steps so you need to consider that after the thermal pools and a massage you have to climb up the stairs. I did it in the middle of summer and I think it was about 37c. The tourist... More

People with troubles with their legs, crutches and wheelchairs will not be happy there because of the many stairs up and down. The smell of sulphur is not everbody´s, but the Thermal Station is good for backaches and some muscle problems. The stalls along the ways are full with things you will need in hammams. Be also aware of young... More
