I had the most magical trip to Imlil from Marrakech in February, everywhere was covered in snow however the sun was shining and the sky was blue. The walk from Imlil to Douar Samra was fantastic, lots to take in and lovely fresh air! The place itself is incredible, the rooms are decorated so beautifully with big fires to keep... More

This really is a wonderful place. I arrived far too late but was still served a delicious meal during a thunderstorm. Then I got the breakfast times wrong, but again it was not a problem. Views are superb, the decor and overall ambience is hugely impressive and sympathetic to its environment, region and the local culture - and it is... More

Stunning house and location in the mountains, really friendly and welcoming staff and easily the best food we had in Morocco. Rooms are very comfortable, with a surprisingly good shower. Garden is big, with plenty of space to relax, read and recuperate after a morning or day walking (which Douar Samra organized for us with a really good guide). A... More

This is my third time staying at Douar Samra, but first time for my husband and we both LOVED it to bits! It was just as perfect as my previous stays. Jacqueline has created a heavenly hideaway nestled right in the heart of the village of Tamartet. From the moment you walk in you are in such a special place.... More

We came to Douar Samra after a few days in Marrakech and it was a nice contrast. It is so peaceful with stunning views located in a small village where you feel like you are living in a local community. When you arrive, give them a call to help with you luggage as the track to the accommodation could be... More

Arriving by taxi, climbing down a path buth then there is a kind of home away from home. Good beds, showers, rooms. Nice dinner. Marvelous hiking with a very nice guide the next day. Other guests seemed to have travelled a lot all over Maroc. Good atmospere. But you have to accept some inconveniences: lunch (brr), no or hardly wifi... More

We loved it here - from the stunning views, sun terraces, beautifully laid out gardens, ducks! mules, candlelight, trek down from the road, goats coming down off the mountain to sleep just behind our room it seemed ( though v quiet) wonderful staff, and best food we ate in Morocco. We had a 3 night stay and were welcomed after... More

This place is beautiful. Get away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech and escape up here for a few days. When you arrive you'll think you're in completely the wrong place, we had to trek down a small track to get there! But so worth it. The place is quaint and has no electricity so the hallways and rooms... More

OK. Reality check. I do wonder how many of the people who have waxed lyrical have stayed in a Moroccan mountain village before. This is a review of two parts. First, the location is magnificent, definitely five stars. The terraces are wonderful places to sunbathe.And the rooms are cute and very carefully decorated, though I believe the (fully booked) main... More
