This is truly a place to chill out. Very original and enticing design of both the buildings and garden areas - loved the many different seating areas tucked away all around the grounds. Food and service from all the staff also great. The only advice I would give is be prepared for 3kms of bumpy road in either direction -... More

Riad Baoussala is a truly special, almost magical place. I actually hesitated before writing this review, as I loved it so much I kind of want to keep it a secret, so that there is room when we book again next year (Inshallah, as they say in Morrocco). At the heart of it all, it's Dominique's vision and personality that... More

You drive up a very bumpy track and through the gates to a real oasis of calm, beauty and tranquility. We really enjoyed our stay, undoubtedly the most relaxing in our Morocco road trip. The rooms are very charming and stylish, the staff are very kind and easy going and clearly enjoy their work and are a brilliant and caring... More

After a 2 and a half taxi transfer, well organised, we arrived and immediately felt relaxed. The marabout suite was perfect next to the pool. The place is among shurb and worth walking around, donkeys, cows, goats and truly peaceful. We had a car for 3 of the 7 days, nothing that much to see, the charm is Essaouria and... More

We stayed here for four nights in May and it's a lovely, relaxing place to stay. Dominique, Leah and Rashid were brilliant, very welcoming and nothing was too much for them. Our room was very cool, a perfect escape if the heat got to much and the food was delicious. We have nothing but good memories of our stay.

This is place is just fantastic. We loved everything about it. Amazing pool, beautifully decorated rooms and outside spaces. It is just great. The food and drink are all reasonably priced too. We would return to Morocco just to stay here. Loved it.

We loved it here!! A perfect relaxing retreat with gorgeous surroundings, lovely people and delicious food! We stayed at Baoussala for 10 days over Easter and had an amazing time. The rooms are beautiful and the whole place is a treat to be in with lots of quirky artefacts and interesting features (for example coloured glass skylights in our bathroom).... More

10 out of 10 - this is one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious and full of fabulous touches, very tasteful and comfortable and with everything you need. The breakfasts and the terraces where you eat are amazing, the pool is beautiful, the salad bowl lunches are ideal, the dinners are copious.. but... More

This was our first experience of an Ecolodge and a wonderful suprise it was! It is beautifully designed within a woodland off a non - tarmac road. We arranged collection from Marrakech airport via Dominique and Leah. This was definitely worth it. We had a great driver and a 4x4 and it took about 2.5 hrs to get from Marrakech... More
