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

The auberge has a nice spacious and well thought out architecture, is beautifully situated in the beautiful surroundings, and is fully equipped.

Booked for two nights, stayed for three, and still wished that It could have been longer. Liesbeth was the perfect hostess, always ready to spend time chatting, and ensuring that her high standards are met by her staff. My room was comfortable, with a view over the Ammelne Valley. It was cleaned daily and the bed made, not always the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found everything to our satisfaction. We had a junior suite which was quite roomy with a pleasant little sitting area. However, it was nice to sit at the tables by the pool too. The pool was very cold according to my husband but also "refreshing". Liesbet was very friendly and gave us information... More
