“Large " tour group " hotel near Dades valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

This hotel is set up nicely for tour groups but because of this lacks some of the personality of the Riads where we prefer to stay in Morocco. The rooms are nice bed comfortable, and it opens up onto a very large connecting terrace area overlooking the city. The breakfast and dinner were buffet style with food that was ok. We had a glass of wine in the bar that was expensive and not very good. Smoking was allowed in the bar. It is certainly one of the better choices in the area and a good one for passing through for a night.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

An attractive welcoming hotel. Clean comfortable room interestingly and attractively decorated with rooftop balcony overlooking the town. Both the breakfast and dinner buffets were of a good standard and showed an excellent variety. However I did not appreciate the Berber Band/Cabaret at dinner!!!

We stayed one night at this hotel, on our way to the desert. November is cold so the pool was cold and it was quite windy to spend times outdoors. The facility is excellent, the decor is lovely. The food was excellent, as was the service.

This is the second Xaluca hotel I stayed in during my holiday in Morocco. I've also stayed at Kasbah Xaluca. I personally find Xaluca Dades to be better than Kasbah Xaluca.

Service: Check in was quick and efficient. Waiters during dinner/breakfast were good as well.

Room: The rooms had quite eccentric decor, had brick walls and a stone ledge next to the bed. Our room also had a balcony that looked out into the town and mountains, nice view! Overall, the room was very clean and comfortable.

Food: Breakfast/Dinner was served buffet style. The food was decent, nothing special.

Xaluca Dades was an adequate hotel for a nights stay.

This is an amazing property. The views from the rooms are spectacular - most (if not all) have private balconies.

The decor is traditional - warm and inviting. The food is good and the service is wonderful. The pool is amazing! The bar area can be quite lively as well.

I have stayed here several times when traveling with groups and this is always a highlight for me. I highly recommend the Xaluca Dades hotel (as well as their desert camping experience). You will not be disappointed!

I will say, however, that I would skip the hammam and massage here. There are better hammams elsewhere.

Room Tip: It may be that all the rooms have a private balcony, but if not, definitely ask for one.

we loved this hotel. great pool and deck area to relax at with spectacular views. The rooms were very clean and bed was nice even thought the king bed was two queens/doubles pushed together. outside balconies and views were nice from our room. very relaxing. bathroom was nice. the breakfast was fantastic with a large selection of everything one could want. the dinner was good with a lot of choices as well. the check in was a bit comical as they had people with costumes quickly stand up and do this big welcome song...cheesy but oh well.

Room Tip: not sure what to say....the rooms are a bit all over the place. get one with a balcony

We were a group of 10 friends from Italy who stayed in this hotel the night of 09 October. We all enjoyed our stay there. The lobby is welcoming, with comfortable seating and there are complimentary biscuits and sweets. We found all our rooms very comfortable and clean, with a small balcony overlooking the town and the hills. Uniquely decorated. Good sized bathrooms, all in perfect working order. Very nice swimming pool. We had a good and varied buffet dinner in their restaurant, it may have been a bit "touristy" but then it is to be expected in a hotel restaurant of this type. Breakfast was varied and adequate. The staff were nice and helpful, especially at the check-in counter.
