We enjoyed a whole week at the Kasbah Bab Ourika (one hour's drive from Marrakech). The hotels' staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food is generally excellent (although it could be more spicy). The location is breath-taking with views over the Ourika valley and the Atlas mountains. The management is competent and keen to make your stay a very... More

We spent 7 nights here during April 2014. We travelled with our 2 teenage boys, who I was worried might be bored - but this was far from the case. The setting is amazing, surrounded by Berber villages this hotel sits high up overlooking the whole valley and the snow-capped mountains. The service was immaculate from start to finish and... More

We stayed for two nights in April which was a great experience after Marrakech - very friendly and relaxing and as the weather was great we could make the most of the gardens and pool. I probably wouldn't stay in the winter as the highlight is really the outside space and pool. The food was great. It's a good location... More

We have been here for 4 nights. The gardens are really fantastic, olive trees , lemon trees, etc. Scattered throughout the garden are seating areas where you can enjoy the spectacular views or read a book. The food was good, breakfast, lunch and dinner was very well taken care of ! There is a daily menu with Moroccan influences and... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. Our room, number 14, was modern and comfortable, with a sun terrace and an amazing view of the mountains. We loved the food in the hotel's restaurant, and enjoyed sitting next to a roaring fire for after dinner drinks. The staff are very professional and friendly. They Abdou pointed out a walking trail where we... More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed the best stay at the Kasbah, we will return for sure. KBO occupies an unbelievable setting, in gorgeous countryside with stunning views and glorious landscaped grounds replete with a herb garden and vegetable patches. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a large bathroom, and such a comfortable bed! A sunset view from the... More

The hotel appears to be a fort situated on top of a hill overlooking the Atlas mountains and the Ourika valley. Access is via a fairly long unmade road from the local town and I am glad that I was not driving. We were in a villa which was pleasant and clean. There was a radiator in the room which... More

Kasbah Bab Ourika (KBO) - a most relaxing and beautiful location situated in the Ourika Valley with stunning view of the Atlas Mountains. Nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable, spacious bedrooms with open fires for when the evenings are chilly. The food is delicious and realistically priced with some lovely Berber dishes included. The grounds are delightful with seats placed... More

Absolutely everything about the Kasbah was perfect...the room, the view, the food, the staff, the grounds. I wouldn't change a single thing. My boyfriend arranged a private dinner on the terrace for the night we arrived so he could propose. Amanda and her staff set a gorgeous table with rose petals, champagne, and candles. It was spectacular. From start to... More

Lovely location, caring staff (other than the manageress), good food, exciting walks. We were unfortunate with the room we were given, we had booked Deluxe but our room didn't even live up to the description of Superior on the hotel's website. It was cold, damp, no heating in the bathroom with no towel drying facilities. We woke in the morning... More

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
