What Kasbah Dar Essalam has going for it is location. Situated in the middle of an oasis, it's such a relaxing and tranquil place. Sitting on the patio a warm evening sipping mint tea enjoying the setting sun, you feel blessed. On the premise there is lots of nooks and crannies where you can sit and enjoy life. When it... More

This was our 2nd night on a 10 day organized tour. I guess we expected the tour accommodations would be more bland and basic. Kasbah Dar Essalam took our breath away. It was like staying in a magical fairy-tale castle. The construction is from traditional mud and straw... you can see the straw in the walls. Even the stairs are... More

This is very beautiful place in the Palmeraie of Skoura. Unfortunately we had only one night there but we wished we couls stay some more days. The authentic Kasbah is lonvingly decorated and offers much space (patio, terasse and balcony) to relax. The rooms are small, but comfortable and cozy. Escpecially the green and well cultivated big garden with the... More

This beautifully restored kasbah is a great place to relax. The gardens are being lovingly developed and the atmosphere is very friendly. The staff are all very helpful and attentive. At first we thought the bedroom was small for the price, but soon realised that there are many spaces, terraces and balconies to relax in. It was naturally a bit... More

Very nice place, the kasbah is an original one, restored and transformed to B&B less than 10 years ago. It gives you the perfect feeling of living in an oasis, surrounded by palm trees. There is an orchard around the house, and a small but clean pool, where you can rest in water after a hot and sandy day in... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night, and wished we had stayed longer. I can't explain the hospitality they offer. The owner's father took me to a local wedding that night, just so I could experience it. Food there is home cooked. Lovely looking Kasbah where you feel at home. Highly recommended.

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.
