There comes a time when you decide that you deserve this! Like many of the other reviewers, I found this small hotel on Trip Advisor and I read every single review, then I looked at their website and fell in love with the place. Unfortunately when this happens it is all too easy to be disapointed once you arrive, however... More

We travelled as a family with three teenagers to stay at Dar Ilham as it had been recommended by some friends. We had a lovely time, the staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble to organise. A great driver, and they recommended an extremely charming guide. The food was delicous and we all had a very relaxing few... More

3rd year running and I have no doubt that 2014 will be the 4th! Dar Ilham can not be beaten. This year we not only took my parents again but also my husbands. To say my Father in Law is fussy is a huge understatement and we were worried he would not enjoy as much as we did....how wrong we... More

I spent four nights and five days in Kasbah dar Ilham and it was lovely; beautiful setting, gorgeous swimming pool and relaxing vibe. I deliberately chose a riad outside the centre of Marrakech as i wanted some down-time to chill out from a busy job - this place was perfect. The first three nights i spent in the twin tangers...

I might start by saying that this is the first time that I have ever written a review in respect of a holiday, however I felt compelled to express just how amazing our stay was with Dar Ilham. We booked 6 nights in March after having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel driver, Hamed,... More

Stayed in the Riad for three nights in March 2013...lovely peaceful hotel, great service, friendly and attentive staff who do anything to make your stay comfortable, helpful driver who wanted to make our stay in Morocco the best possible. Definitely one to come back to if I'm ever in Morocco again. About 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of... More

The kasbah is so pretty! The pool and hot tub are great. The staff so attentive and helpful we could not fault the place. The tv in our room was not working and we were moved to a better room to make sure we could take advantage of all that is advertised as available. The food was utterly delicious! We... More

The staff are pleasant and efficient but this is a very remote 20 minute drive out of the city and down dairy track, The Kasbah was closed and thus so was the large pool a d the hot tub, We were the only people there for most of our visit. The gym is very antiquated and the equipment mostly broken.... More

Dear Madame, Thank you for the positive aspects you mention in your review. Concerning the other part of your comment, we would like to explain some points so that anyone can hear both sides of the story. - The Kasbah was closed due to extensive renovations in progress. If we cannot organize this renovation in January, when the Kasbah is... More

This hotel is a very quiet small hotel outside of Marrakech. There is not anyone fighting for the sun beds, there are no fag butts all over the place or people getting drunk, it is delightful. Although you can have a nice bottle of wine around the pool if you wanted. We chose it because of the reviews on trip... More
