After a six day hike in the M'Goun High Atlas, what a great stop-over en route back to Marrakech! First beer in a week (!), catching up on emails by the pool, great views and a fantastic room - sure beat our tent! Attentive staff too. Very close to Ait Ben Haddoo so a great two night location to go... More

We spent one night here in June 2014 on our way from Merzouga to Marrakech. Location is a bit remote, but unbeatably cozy, with great views of the adjacent kasbah. It is a very charming place with lots of good taste. Dining room features jazz inspired decor and jazz music, which was a surprising but pleasant diversion from the usual... More

We only had one night here but I would happily have stayed longer. It is a fascinating region with plenty to do (and the hosts Michel and Collette will help you out with suggestions and arrangements) and the Kasbah itself is comfy and welcoming. Like all Moroccan hotels it is full of terraces and little hidey holes in which to... More

As another writer mentioned, this property is about 10 minutes from Eit Benhaddou in a lovely oasis like setting. Birds of all kinds, storks in particular, are everywhere. We wanted to see the desert but not travel all the way out into the desert so Kasbah Ellouze was a good choice for us. We got up early one morning (before... More

The very unassuming entrance leads to a true oasis! No frills, no non-sense but clean and comfortable run by a French couple. We had an excellent dinner on the terrace. The chicken Tagine was an experience. O yes, don't forget the swimming pool. Do not pass this spot!

I have visited Kasbah Ellouze on a number of occasions over the last few years. It is not actually located in Ait Benhaddou but instead is in a small hamlet - Tamdaght - about 10 minutes drive away. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable but nothing special however it is the overall ambiance of this wonderful crumbling village and the... More

We wanted somewhere to stay near Eit Benhaddou and we could not have chosen anywhere more perfect. A good, quiet location and the ability to walk around the valley below without being hassled. Fantastic welcome from owners who wanted to ensure all guests had a good time. Pool was beautiful, service good, excellent drink selection and an incredibly good dinner... More

What a wonderful place, too bad we only had one night to enjoy! The building is an old restored Kasbah, and the decor is exotic with the zellij mosaic tiles, curtains, cushions, open air courtyard, and a beautiful view plus pool to boot. The owners were quite lovely, and greeted us with mint tea and some conversation. My french is... More

This unique kasbah is a little out of the way, not being near to many amenities, however it is an ideal place to relax. There are several terraces to enjoy the views of the surrounding orchard, and a ruined kasbah to tour nearby. There is also a nice pool, and very friendly staff serving excellent meals. Walking toward the kasbah... More
