We stayed here 1 night before visiting Ait Benhadou. The hotel is on the road past the village next to a river. The hosts are very helpful and surroundings beautiful. Apparently, one can continue on the road past this hotel and connect to the road to Marrakech. It shows as unpaved on the map but it has been paved now... More

Good atmosphere in a beautiful and authentic region. Staff very friendly. Room a bit small with simple comfort but with charming terrace. A good experience.

Without reservation, we arrived at Defat Kasbah and were made most welcome. In a good location, its service is its strongest asset. Room prices are reasonable in comparison with others in this touristic location. Special thanks to Abdou and our guide Jean-Pierre Mohammed. Thank you for the good service and kindness.

If your planning on staying the night at ait ben haddou (sunset on the old ksour is lovely and most tourists are gone) this is the only decent place other then a giant expensive tourist hotel. The prices were double that of the lonely planet (edition 2007) with the cheapest double room (seperate bathroom) at 200 dh (about 18 euro)... More

Excellent location next to a river 3 km from Ain Benhaddou. The mud and plaster look of the hotel is authentic Moroccan. We rented the largest room with attached bathroom and the half board option (breakfast and dinner included). The heating in the room was not working. Some of the lamps were not working. Ceiling had mould and the toilet... More

We stayed here for one night while visiting the spectacular Kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. Our room was clean and comfortable if a little sparse and the location was perfect - walking distance from the Kasbah (3km) but not in the centre of Ait Benhaddou, which, to be blunt is a bit of a dump. It had constant hot and cold... More

We found the rooms very ordinary but everything else was charming. The pool is pleasant, the many balconies are nice and the staff is a jolly bunch of young lads who spiced up the atmosphere. The food was very good and the guys played music for us afterwards. We had a good time here. It's a place full of life... More

This beautiful little guesthouse is only 3 km away from the tourist hub of Ait Benhaddou, but those 3 km make all the difference. You really feel like you've got away from it all, with only the gorgeous red mountains and the vast skies for company. The rooms are centred around a courtyard with a pool and are in traditional...
