We looked at a couple of places nearby that were not good so were delighted to find such a great hotel very near to trafroute. The Dutch lady who runs it was very helpful and gave us good cycling and walking routes. A must is to take the hotel bikes along the cycle path at the painted rocks. Great setting... More

We were originally booked into a hotel in the centre of Tafraoute but our driver/guide, understanding we preferred to be in more rural settings rebooked us in to Kasbah Chez Amaliya, five to 10 kms east of town. Unlike the riads or boutique inns where we stayed elsewhere Chez Amaliya has a ‘hotel’ feel about it. The (family) suite we... More

Lovely spacious airy hotel. Great pool with fab views toward the mountains. Very attentive staff member who seemed to do everything well. Meal somewhat slow to arrive and not very big portion for 2. Room was cozy with slightly odd shower which wasn't hot. Very comfortable bed.

Ok, so there aren't really any top end hotels to choose from in this area, but we were happy to forgo our usual luxury tastes in return for some absolutely stunning scenery, and at Chez Amaliya you can't ask for a better setting! The hotel itself was basic yet comfortable and very good value for money, and although perhaps the... More

We first visited Tafraout in 1977 and fell in love with the golden mountains, hillside villages and palm treed valleys. After 38 years, it is still a magical walkers paradise. But now, the accommodations are much improved. Chez Amaliya is about 4km outside of Tafraout town with memorable mountain and hillside views. It is owned by a delightful and very... More

This is Morocco and you are hundreds of miles from anywhere so don't expect the highest of standards. Having said that Chez Amaliya (4 kilometres north of Tafraoute ) is very good for what it is. Liesbeth (the owner) speaks good English which is a bonus for us Brits who can't speak Arabic. A big plus is that the rooms... More

This Riad is located 5 km from Tafraout, in the Ameln valley. It is a big, a bit austere, building next to the road, the rooms are located around an inner patio with swimming pool. The best you can get around Tafraout and the friendly reception from the dutch lady who runs the place makes up for the rather basic... More

Situated outside of town in area fine for walking. Very helpfull about the hikes. Have very fine description on how to find your way around. Food is OK but nothing special. Prices for food, wine and lodging is average. Pool and area around it is very pleasant.

Good hotel in a wonderful country. Located in the south of Morocco, this hotel offers good quality (close to the quality required by European citizens) with a small touch of berbers tradition. Restaurant is good and it is possible to have dinner and breakfast also near the swimming pool... But a little bit of more lights in the night should... More

We had visited Tafraoute before, but had not stayed in this hotel. It is by far the best option in the town, having good facilities and a beautiful view. Liesbeth who runs it is friendly and helpful and will contribute lots of ideas of things to do. The pool is great and there are plenty of loungers. Breakfast and dinner... More
