Negatives: -Bad accesss. First 20 km by normal road(20 min.) after 10 km(40 min.) a stony pista. -Very noisy room. They have a power generator working all day (to 11 pm) and placed in the laundry room next to the hotel room. You fell like living in a washing machine, you can not rest or sleep. -Outside is continuous noise... More

If you are travelling in the region of Guelmim, TanTan & TanTan Le Plage, a great place to stay is Fort Bou-Jerif. Five kilometres off-road this hotel & camping site is situated close to the old ruins of the Fort. There is a large camping area where you can either pitch your own tent or there are permanent tents available... More

The petite hotel is wonderful. The location amazing. The food was excellent. We stayed for two nights and this was a wonderful starting point for our adventure along the coast and into the desert. some of our group stayed in the Hotel, others camped. All had a super time.

Read and seen a lot about this place over the yrs, finally made it and really liked it. Not too touristy, great camping, excellent food though a little expensive, but in great surroundings. You still, ideally, need a 4x4 to get here because it's 9kms from tarmac, but nothing damaging or hard so a car could do slowly. Also a... More

Firstly, be warned... If you travel here with a particular Travel Agent, they fail to tell you that on Day 1 of the overnight, you drive 400kms from Agadir, spending approx 9.5hrs in a cramped 4x4 with NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! Having paid €155 for this overnight excursion, it was on my "To Do" list for a very long time. But,... More

We stayed on the 'Campsite' that was more like a Carpark with 240V outlet sockets in the lights. There was no hot water for the showers, the electricity was turned off in the afternoon with no warning, and no toilet paper supplied in the WC's which for the price was very poor service! While it was good to be able... More

The area is magnificent, not too far from the ''Plage Blanche'', food is ok, owner is ok, his wife is ok, lodging is ok (but the toilets are in the room and I hate that), and considering everything the price is way too high. However, there is no alternative within 50 km.

My wife & I actually reside in Agadir (early retired), a few hours north of the Fort and enjoy using the campsite/Fort as a base. I'm interested in the geology & archeaology of the area, where I've previously mapped the Fort itself, working out what I consider the various buildings' functions were. I've yet to determine where the graveyard was.... More

This is an exceptionally remote destination, but worth the effort. The various styles of accommodation are arranged to give maximum privacy, and the restaurant is well managed by a caring Frenchwoman. The Fort is a short walk and is a stunning relic of the past, where you can let your imagination run wild! The fort is situated next to a... More

Sabine and I had the chance to spend there the last night of 2011. We booked just 2 days before as we where driving around South Morocco without a particular plan. The place sounded different from ordinary hotels, therefore we chose it for that special night. And we were absolutely stunned by the beauty of the location and the hotel... More
