After a dusty drive across the desert and late lunch in a local restaurant in town we arrived at Bab Rimal nestled between the hills, just as the sun was beginning to descend, a rather surreal experience given the fact that we were on the edge of the desert and a long way from real civilization. The tranquility and comfort... More

We were not scheduled to stay here, but our several night trip in the desert was interrupted by the crazy rains and we had to evacuate our camel trip on a 4x4. They brought us to Bab Rimal as an alternative to continue our trip through Morroco. The rains affected us yet again since the bridge on the main road... More

I had some trepidation regarding traveling to Morocco because I don't speak Arabic or French and I am allergic to all nuts. Walnuts can kill me and I carry an epi-pen at all times. A friend recommend that my husband and I meet Bari because he was traveling back home,to Morocco. We had lunch in San Francisco and we told... More

We had 2 nights here (after driving to Tata and discovering there was no hotel or Riad there that anyone would want to stay in, and so returning to Foum Zguid for the second night). The hotel has a lovely location between the hills, and the view from the very decent pool is lovely. Individual bungalows are well presented and... More

After driving on our motorbikes through the desert for 3 days, we arrived at Bab Rimal which was like an oasis for us. It was very hot and thus we enjoyed the swimming pool and the air-conditioned rooms to cool down a little bit. The furniture of our room was elegant with a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very clean... More

We loved the place! Wonderful setting, local walks along riverbed, great atmosphere. Everything a tired, hungry and thirsty traveller could want, and a better standard than we had seen for a number of days. Food was traditional by choice and delicious. Naji, owner/manager, was a breath of fresh air and regaled us with stories of the culture. He arranged our... More

Great place to stay with very friendly and helpful staff. Chill by the pool, explore locally, or take an overnight trip into the desert by 4WD - highly recommended, fantastic desert scenery, expert and friendly driver, dune scrambling, camel spotting, ethnic overnight stay, dawn departure (or to suit). Take cash unless you have paid beforehand - ATM in Foum Zguid... More

We spent a night in the desert arranged from here which started in the early afternoon. When we arrived in the morning for the trip, we were having serious mechanical problems with our hire car. The manager was extremely helpful and spoke with the car hire company who were reluctant to believe that there was anything wrong with the car.... More

We stayed there only one night and it was a pity. Had I known that it would be possible to make a desert trip from there, I'd stayed one more! We got a bungalow, very clean, comfortable, breakfast was excellent, and so was the dinner with bottle of good Moroccan vine! Staff was really friendly and helpful. I definitely will... More

Great concept. Simple but interesting rooms. But.....on arrival the guard at the gate was asleep. No one to get our bags. The reception guy was asleep on the floor. Carried our own bags. The bar frig was locked and a sad looking teen clad in dirty sweatpants had to be awakened with the keys every time we wanted a drink.... More
