On my 6-days trip in Southern Morocco, my 1-night stop in Kasbah Dar Essalam was a perfect choice. The host and his family are very nice and accommodating. The rooms are small but it is not a problem unless you plan to spend your whole day in the room... The pool is a great add-on during those hot days to... More

This place is a nice stop on the way to Merzouga. The swimming pool was perfectly clean, and peaceful. The kasbah has been restored by the owner's family, and though it's still beeing improved, it has a fascinating style. We stayed for one night only, and was enough since there's no much to do around the place, but it could... More

If ever you need a break from Marocco's noises, smells and traffic, Dar Essalam is the place which will allow you to enjoy peace amidst a flowery garden, next to a cool pool or in its wonderfully decorated rooms. We highly recommend staying at Dar Essalam for longer than just one night. The oasis has got a lot of wonderful... More

Perfect stop for a sleep when driving from marrakech to the merzouga desert. The kasbah, including their clean and nice swimmingpool, is beautiful and very authentic. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and the food is the best we had during our whole trip! Both the room and the dinners were the cheapest we experienced; very good value for money.

We stayed 4 nights out of season, so we had all the time and leisure to apreciate a very special relation with our hosts, Tarek and his father. They did every possible thing to make our stay unforgetable as if we were part of their family. The family have been in the oasis for several generations, we got shown around... More

We stayed two days at the Kasbah Dar Essalam and found it a very welcoming and authentic kasbah with excellent food and staff who could not have been kinder or more hospitable. It is a little off the beaten track out of the village of Skoura but then this is part of its attraction. We took one evening meal there... More

Thanks to tripadvisor – otherwise we would not have found this place! A beautifully restored Kasbah right next to Skouras Palmerie and in the middle of many other more or less restored Kasbahs where you can stroll around. It is the pride of its owner (and rightfully so) who is determined to create one of the most beautiful gardens. The... More
