You can also find reviews of the magnificent Dar Ahlam under Skoura reviews, where it is #1 of 2 hotels. But since there were far fewer reviews there, I decided to review it here, even though it is at least 30 minutes outside Ouarzazate (but only 2 minutes from the small village of Skoura). If you are considering staying here,... More

We only stayed here for one night. We throuroughly enjoyed the experience of this motel. Amazing food and brilliant service. Loved the day spa. I thoroughly enjoyed dining in different locations at each meal time. We arrived mid afternoon, after 6hrs travelling and were greeted with a lively lunch and a crisp white wine. Great stay in the desert.

i have traveled the world, and there is simply no other more enchanting experience than that of the Dal Ahlam (period). My family and I came for the week of New Years 2013/4 and it was beyond any expectation (and that goes for my entire family . . . of kids and adults ages 20-60). The place is magnificent, the...

We were 5 couples and came to Dar Ahlam which was highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. It was even better than expected. What a fabulous property! It certainly is not for the feint of heart price wise but it is worth every MAD and everything is included even excursions and lunches off property. Every delicious... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a group bicycle tour, one night of which was in the desert. The Casbah is spectacular, great rooms, fabulous common areas, beautiful grounds, wonderful staff, and gourmet meals. There was literally nothing the staff wouldn't do, with free laundry nightly. As if this wasn't enough, they arrange for luxury dinner and... More

In many ways much better than expected. The silence of the desert permeates the place so you are always peaceful. The blue, blue skies above and the birds singing all the time are wonderful. All our meals were served in different locations at our own private table. Truly glorious with candlelight at night. An excursion for sunset to an 11th... More

This was the pinnacle of our honeymoon, we had arranged for a suite and a night in the desert. It was a very long journey to get out to Ouarzazate as we'd come via Fez (the long way). Every night we dined in a different location with a different meal that the hotel chose for us, it was always a... More

My wife, 16 year old son and I spent three splendid nights at Dar Ahlam in December, 2013. I highly recommend the hotel. This is a unique place. It’s a property where your stay is tailored to you. If you don’t like something with your room, or with the planned arrangements, all you need to do is speak up, and... More
