So, first off the location is absolutely breathtaking - I'm talking best ever view. 5* for setting and location. Gorgeous animals, gardens and books to read and games. As a tip - it is also completely remote, so before you arrive bring snacks, plenty of water and whatever else. The village is at the bottom of the hill, so be... More

The garden and the views from it over the mountains are beautiful. Our rooms were very quaint, quite rustic and quirky - the en-suite loo in ours was in a tiny space facing the bed with only a minimum curtain for privacy and we only had candles for lighting, our son (who is 6ft 4'') had a shower cubicle in...

This welcoming guesthouse is a unique and wonderful place. The candlelit living room is a great place to share stories of walks and adventures with fellow guests and to relax and restore strength for the next day's walk. The food is fantastic and Rachida and her team are wonderful hosts.

It was my husband's and my first trip to Morocco, and our stay at Douar Samra was one of the highlights of our trip. It is set in a village in the mountains with an incredible view.

We truly enjoyed eating with and talking to people from all over the world who had come to stay in this quaint, rustic little hotel high in the Atlas Mountains. Interesting to sleep in a building built in traditional Berber architectural style, with the windows open to the frequent calls to prayer at the nearby mosque and the village donkeys... More

Loved our 2 night stay at Dour Samra. Our garden room was perfect for family of 4, comfy and cosy and the garden hammocks and pet dogs went down well with kids too. Food prepared by Rashida was tasty, candlelight dining atmospheric and we enjoyed chatting and playing games with other guests. Wine and beer available with food (a relatively... More

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.

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
