On arrival, the hotel is inviting with style elements mirroring those of traditional oases in the desert. Located outside of Erfoud, it is conveniently located for activities on the edge of the Sahara. Passing through reception where mint tea is served to guests, there is a massive outdoor space with a spacious pool and surround, with palm trees and local... More

The hotel had nearly everything I could ask for in a resort. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and screamed "kasbah." However, the room never got Internet service (had to leave the adobe walls and head to the pool for service), there were no extra plugs to recharge batteries, and the water in the shower had huge temperature fluctuations. The room... More

On the edge of the Sahara sits a hotel which more that deserves its outstanding reputation. Located approximately 6 miles from the nearest town (Erfoud), it is truly “an oasis in the desert”. The complex of 134 rooms, suites and family bungalows, is spread over a large area of paved walkways and secluded patios. Most are centered around the open... More

Was with a tour group. I loved the ambiance. The room was cozy but really dark. Still it was a great experience. Buffet dinner and breakfast were fine. Any place that has flan/egg custard for desert is ok by me.

It is all singing all dancing resort but as has been said elsewhere a bit Disney Morocco. Staff were as helpful as they needed to be but no more. Food is buffet style and OK as is breakfast. Wifi is slow and only in the reception area. I had problems with hot water but others in the group did not... More

This is a long way from the coast cities. Over the Atlas mountains and into the desert. After the long ride through the narrow Ziz river valley, this delightful place was a welcome gem. Upon arrival of our Gate 1 tour bus, we were treated to music and dancing and mint tea. The atmosphere was festive and the dancers and... More

I have stayed in Xaluca Dades several times and I love the ambiance, but this was my first time at Xaluca Erfoud. I drive past the hotel regularly and had no idea the hotel complex was so enormous! The rooms and grounds are spread out over a large area which is fully paved. I think that over the warmer months... More

I regularly travel with my clients to this hotel when leading photo tours. It is a beautiful place to relax going or coming from the desert camps. The rooms are very spacious and good for working. The pool area outside and inside is very beautiful. The staff and the food deserve a 5-star+. The staff is well trained and pay... More

Our FAVORITE hotel during our entire 13-day Morocco trip! I heard this response from practically all the other travelers in our tour group too. This hotel is in an area where you really can't walk to any restaurants or shopping (which you wouldn't expect when staying in this remote part of Morocco anyways) but it has so much charm. You...

I couldn't believe how wonderful the Kasbah Hotel Xaluca was! It is a true romantic idea of what you think Morocco should be. The accomodations were comfortable, clean and the ambiance was wonderful. The food and bar service was fantastic and even the gift shop had some wonderful items. A must hotel if you are in the area.
