We have lunch in this place surprising Colette and the staff by our visit, and have a wonderful lunch thank you Yanik and Colette for your always wonderful hospitality. Fresh, delicious and worth every coin.

We were greeted warmly at the van (exhausted) by the owners and it only got better from there. Come here - don't even think about it. You will feel like a royalty as you are treated like gold! It's an absolutely beautiful experience. Enjoy :)

I was stunned when my friends and I pulled up into this beautiful oasis after driving for many hours into what seemed like the middle of nowhere. This amazing hidden gem was just what we needed to recharge after our first few exhausting days in Morocco. The rooms were beautifully decorated and most importantly air conditioned! We were given a... More

Have to agree that Collette and Yanick and crew deserve the accolades. As with a previous reviewer, we arrived feeling very much under the weather and only looking for a cool place to sleep. Collette's oregano tea helped immensely and we only wish we could have enjoyed the food, but due to our "situation" all we could really do is... More

We received a very personal and warm welcome from the French couple who own and run this lovely hotel, which is an oasis of calm at the edge of the Sahara desert. Stunning old building, carefully restored to an excellent standard ...with very inviting swimming pool. Beautifully crafted and maintained grounds. And the food, the food: wow, fantastic! Service was... More

This redone kasbah has a lovely pool, rooms decorated with much attention to detail, and a very welcoming French couple as hosts. Although they don't speak English, or just a little, they have made special efforts to always have a Moroccan assistant present who does. But for me the outstanding feature is the multi-course French meals, served very elegantly with,... More

This was a lovely place to stay and the French hosts were so enthusiastic and welcoming. Our room was lovely and the facilities were spacious and varied. There was a large garden with many places to sit, a large pool where we had drinks every night. Be aware that it is generally too expensive to heat the pools so they... More

When visiting the desert again recently, my husband and I did not hesitate to make a return visit to Kasbah Ait Ben Damiette en route and also on our return journey. We also took some friends along for the ride. All I can say is that this stay was just as wonderful as the first time, in fact even better... More

My husband and I and 3 of our children spent the night here as a stopover between Marrakech and the Sahara desert. It was such a memorable stay for all of us. The owners, Yannick and Collette and also Malfoud were exceptional hosts. Moroccan tea by the pool listening to jazz while our children played ping pong and bocce, watching... More

We stayed at Kasbah Ait-Ben-Damiette for just one night in April 2015. But it was such a memorable few hours, that we wished we had stayed longer, much longer. Because of the extraordinary warmth and constant attention of the owners Colette and Yannick. As well as the perfect professionalism of Malfoud, the manager. We stayed in the Marrakech suite, a...
