It was not the kind of desert that I expected, they call it the desert of Marrakech and it not a sandy one, but a stony. Never the less, this place was the best place I visited in Marroko, the house where my family stayed was beautiful and astonishing. Even after three months the 4 year old kid is still... More

Don't get me wrong, we enjoyed our stay very much because of the setting and isolation but that has nothing to do with the service we received at this place. If it was a medium or budget hotel, I would have given this place a 5*. Given that we paid top $ to stay at the place, the service felt... More

For what we wanted, this placed nailed it, but would caution to future guests that what you’re getting is: desolation, views of desert, quiet oasis, nothing to do but eat and lay by pool or in hammocks by room. We got a transfer from our hotel in Marrakesh and had an hour drive into the desert. The ride is bumpy... More

This is by far the most amazing, interesting and wonderful hotel. It is absolutely fascinating that a hotel can be run so wonderfully with little amenities in the middle of a secluded desert. We went here for my fathers birthday in 2007 and they made it very special. The hotel provided us with great entertainment, palm readers, belly dancers, cakes,... More

If you are looking for peace and quite, a holiday destination free from modern noise and gadgetry then this is a place for you. Other reviews commented on the lack of communication from the staff, I'd just say they misjudged what this place is about as I think that's exactly the point of it (but that said, if him ask... More

La Pause is the answer to a question: "How can you create the best, most authentically Moroccan experience possible without electricity". And they have done just that. Every single aspect of the experience is carefully thought through, always with the guest in mind. The lodges are stunning, the food is delightful and the environment, with its olive groves and huge... More

We had a fantastic time in this amazing place - lunching in our own huge Berber tent, walking along the river bed to the local village. Relaxing by the pool in the olive grove and then watching the sun set from our luxurious accommodation. La Pause becomes magical at night as our house and all the paths are lit by... More

La Pause is a very special place and experience, connected to something deeper than the common luxury hotel. You can expect to relax and rejuvenate in the stark beauty and tranquility of an unplugged desert landscape, surrounded by total comfort and inspiring style. La Pause understands how to pamper guests without intrusion; their service is genuine. The food is consistently,... More

I expected something of a modest resort but this place was a major disappointment. I was shown to my room, provided no information by anyone, there was no office or any other source of information, I was just stuck in this primitive place with no electricity. Thank goodness for my iPod, there was nothing to do except to walk around.... More

After staying in the Medina we headed out to La Pause for our last night and could not have been happier with the experience. The entire family loved the location, the accommodations and the dining. The staff was exceptional, as was our camel excursion. After the intensity of a Marrakech stay this was perfect way to relax. Even our three... More
