Lovely stop after the desert camps in the Sahara. The hosts do everything right -- nice rooms, great food, pool and games available, and just a welcoming ambience. Colette is an accomplished cook who expresses her love through her preparations. Wifi is a little weak, but then again, maybe that's a good thing.

Yannick and Colette are the perfect hosts - warm, charming, friendly, accommodating. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. However the real highlight of our stay here was the food. Aware that by the time travellers reach Skoura they might be seeking a break from tagines and couscous, Colette prepares a dinner which is an imaginative and delicious fusion of... More

My husband, 6 year old son, and I stayed at this hotel for only 1 night but we wish we could have stayed longer. We received the warmest and most hospitable service we have ever experienced (and we travel a lot). The hotel itself is beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing. It felt like a mix of French countryside and colorful Morocco.... More

My sister and I stayed here for the night and it was undoubtedly the best hospitality I think we've ever come across. We were made to feel completely at home and the room was stunning. Dinner was incredible - there was so much of it too! I wish we could have stayed longer. Emily & Hannah (UK)

We arrived to a warm welcome from our hosts Colette and Yannik. We were not sure what to expect but the entrance to the Kasbah was so lovely - the gardens are gorgeous - our expectations were high. Our rooms were spacious and very beautifully done with lovely bathroom products and biscuits to sample. We were offered tea and sat... More

Our trip to Morocco took us through the Atlas mountains to the little palm grove oasis of Skoura (on the way to a dessert camp at Erg Chebbi). One of the highlights of our trip was to spend a night at the Kasbah Ait Ben Damiette www.kasbahaitbendamiette.com . It was recommended to us by our host at the desert camp... More

Immediately after arriving we felt very welcome by our hosts. The cookies to the tea were too good. I transformed into a cookie monster :) The room was nicely decorated offering a lot of space. The views from the roof should not be missed! What a treasure!

Our family of five (we are from Vancouver, Canada) spent one month in Morocco in December 2014. We stayed one night at Kasbah Ben Damiette. The Kasbah was gorgeous and very comfortable. Our hosts Colette and Yanik were extremely nice and prepared meals fit for a pacha! Big thank you! We highly recommend this riad.

One of our only regrets about our trip to Morocco was not being able to stay here longer. The French couple that runs the Kasbah are as warm and welcoming as you could ever hope for. We couldn't get over how insanely well-kept the property was. The town surrounding the Kasbah is quite peaceful, we stayed here on our way... More

After a day's drive from Marrakech, the flower garden in the front and the sunny pool adjacent the large palmeraie provided the perfect rest and relaxation. A gorgeous place that looks like a castle or a fort - but is not ancient. It was built around 1950 and was recently renovated. The rooms are large and luxurious but a bit... More
