After a day of travel and arriving at the acclaimed Hotel Xaluca Dades I had high expectations. Lovely welcome from the tribal singers and then you get to the front desk. Lets just say the receptionist clearly was bothered when I approached the front desk. And after checking with other guests she was down-right rude to others. The room which... More

This hotel is lovely as well as being expertly managed and staffed with delightful people. Their huge buffet every night has something for everybody, and includes a lot of desserts. Guest Rooms are comfortable, clean, and chic, with very nice bathrooms. There is artwork from all over Africa in the guest rooms as well as the public spaces. A nice... More

Very nice place with some really unusual features in the bedrooms and I mean that in a positive way. Situated in an elevated position overlooking the town with the mountains in the background. Evening meals buffet style and perfectly acceptable in both quality and variety.

Wow: The rooms are beautifully decorated and have a small balcony looking out to the town & mountains. The outside of the hotel looks quite odd. There are quirky touches to the rooms eg. shelf made of chicken wire. Light switches resemble tap knobs. This hotel is on the tourist trail, and gets very busy, however it is deceiving because...

Slightly different to their other hotels in the chain that I visited as it does not aim to mimic the local environment. Probably the best food in the three we stayed in on the trip. Room slightly smaller with small terrace – rooms at the front and back have larger terraces ans as the sun rises above the mountains to... More

Arrived late afternoon and we were received by eight dancers /musicians that gave us a long warm welcome. Very very nice. Followed by the traditional welcoming tea. Our room was right beside the pool, bar and restaurant. The room was slightly shabby in that the balcony door handle was just about completely off, so no access to the extensive view.... More

In general not a bad hotel, but a little strange or unique however you would like to put it. The food was really good. The place was clean . The staff was very nice. The best part was the spa/hamam and if you are a fitness nutt :) they do have a gym which is pretty cool because there is... More

This is a wonderful hotel that clearly stands out of all the other hotels in South Morocco because of its different decoration. The hotel interior decoration is mostly african design - very tasteful and beautifully decorated. Great spa facilities and an excellent breakfast and dinner buffet! I regularly travel with my photo tour clients to this hotel. My rooms always... More

There were very few people staying at the hotel, but they laid on a full buffet, not exciting but edible. Before retiring for the night we asked reception about the lack of hot water. The technician duly turned up and checked our hot water supply. This required several visits by the technician but eventually got there. Our breakfast coffee was... More
