“Outstanding paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

My family and I spent three glorious days here for a much needed pause from frenetic Marrakech.
It was a truly wonderful oasis surrounded by magnificient views. The Kasbah itself is sympathetically developed within its landscape and the facilities are excellent. The pool, gardens and surrounding outdoor areas are lovely and breathtaking views abound from wherever you park yourself! The staff were very sweet, efficient without being intrusive and the rooms were well appointed and spacious and spotlessly clean. We chose to do absolutely nothing other than to relax in the gardens by the pool but the Kasbah can arrange and create great itineraries for anyone wanting a more energetic sojourn. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available and the food is very tasty indeed, leaning towards classical moroccan and berber cuisine which is a lovely alternative to all the french and italian restaurants that exist in Marrakech. So for a wonderful rest in tranquil beautiful surroundings, a total get away from it all, even though Marrakech is only 40 minutes away, this is the ideal solution.
We will be back, cannot wait and are really sad to have left. Thankyou to Paul and his team for their wonderful hospitality and great service.

Perfect place for lovers. This place suits couples, small group of friends and a solo traveller, not for children. Beautiful setting, with gardens and stunning views. No shops, no distractions, just walking and nature. Food in the Kasbah was really nice and the staff were helpful, polite and friendly. The swimming pool area was very relaxing. We had glowworms in our room!

The situation is only about 40 minutes from Marrakech so makes a superb base and is a great escape from the mayhem and fun of Marrakech.

we booked into the Kasbah Angour as a relaxing start to our honeymoon. We had requested transport from Marrekech Airport, and travelled about an hour after landing to get there. When we arrived Paul told us the history of the Kasbah and gave us a quick tour of the stunning gardens and indoor areas.
we spent 4 days here which we originally planned to be spent by the pool, but a combination of grey weather and a sense of adventure saw us see the Tuesday Souk in Tahanaoute, followed by a guided walk back through a Berber Village and beautiful country side. We also took an unguided walk and explored the local area which was amazing and spent a very relaxing afternoon enjoying the sunshine. the last day we took a guided mule hike into the Atlas, starting at a town called Imlil. This was without a doubt a fantastic experience. All of the adventures we had were perfectly organised by Paul and his team and they were trips we would never have thought of organising ourselves. we could have spent a week there and not have experienced everything on offer!

Back to the Kasbah; amazing traditional food, locally sourced products, good service, good wine, good beer, all in a setting that awakens every sense. Sunsets from the roof terrace are a must-see.

We were collected at the end of our stay by our driver from the Sahara Adventure Travels for the next part of our adventure.....

Would recommend time at the Kasbah Angour to anyone!

A belated review from Oct 2012 when we stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of our honeymoon and it was such a fantastic stay that I couldn't not review. Perfect position which gives outstanding views, amazing garden and genuine Moroccan architecture and fittings all lovingly created by Paul the owner, who cannot do enough to make your stay as good as can be. Great walks into the mountains and nearby Berber villages with charming guides. Although the setting is perfect, for me the service, all local Berber staff (very cheery, helpful and nice to be around) and food, all authentic seasonal well cooked food really make this place. Dinner is very romantic in a pretty room with log fire, great wine list and local, occasionally live, music. Previously visited for the first leg of a mini Morocco tour but we will return solely to recharge in such a tranquil setting and be looked after by Paul and his amazing team.

Honest downsides if you can call them that: my husband would like to see wifi in the rooms, it was only in reception at the time of our visit so inconvenient to him and means a few people lingering in reception. My husband would like more choice on the lunchtime menu as eating in is the only realistic option and choice is limited (although I thought all so good it did not bother me) and it would be nice if the pool could be heated as its such a lovely pool but was icy cold at the time of our visit. I would love to see Paul add the services of a Hammam, perhaps a local Berber lady as Paul supplies the local Berber men as guides, perhaps this is next in Paul's plan. However a quick cab ride into Marrakech and there are plenty to choose from but it would be the icing on the cake.

I cannot recommend enough. We will return

Room Tip: We had the most amazing suite, we would recommend. Very spacious and comfortable. From what we saw a...

A wonderful hotel with beautiful features created by local artisans. The gardens are absolutely wonderful with a variety of well established plants and the swimming pool is set discreetly to one side. The snow capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains can be seen in distance but whichever way you look, there are great views. This hotel is only 30 minutes from Marrakech and a great base for exploring the local area. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with the bonus of a proper hairdryer!

Room Tip: All rooms have a different appeal; view, patio, balcony etc, so it is personal preference.

We stayed here for two nights in April. Having suffered an interminable (and inexplicable) wait at security at the airport in Marrakesh it was wonderful to arrive at this serene oasis. Marrakesh was experiencing unusually hot weather during the week we were there and so it was lovely to be in a cooler position. The Kasbah was built from scratch by Paul over the last five years and he has done a wonderful job, the gardens are stunning. The atmosphere is quiet, calm and welcoming. I am not sure how many rooms there are but it certainly wasn't full during the time we stayed. We had an extremely comfortable room facing the beautifully landscaped gardens, lovely big bathroom too. It would have been nice to have been able to shut the shutters but left the glass bit of the windows open at night, I didnt feel entirely happy leaving the windows wide open as we were on ground level so on the second night we opted for air conditioning. As we were only there for two nights and one day and felt badly in need of a total relax we decided not to do any of the tours this time, next time we will. We spent the day sunbathing and swimming which is just what we needed. Breakfast is taken outside on a terrace and is very good, breads, yoghurt, fruit and a choice of eggs, pancakes etc. You are given a menu in the late afternoon and asked to make your dinner choices. This was the only area where I wouldn't give full marks, the evening meals were acceptable but certainly not delicious, we had wonderful meals in Essaouira so I know you can get them. If Paul could improve on the evening meals then this hotel would get full marks. We absolutely loved our stay and look forward to returning in the not too distant future for another visit, I have raved about this place to all my friends!

We spent four very pleasant nights at Kasbah Angour. The owner/builder/man-in-charge, Paul, was charming, helpful, and runs a very nice country hotel.

The suite we had was large, if spartanly furnished, with views overlooking the gardens and mountains in the distance. The pool looks wonderful, although we didn't use it as the weather was still a bit chilly for pool lounging. Paul arranged for two day trips, each of which was as promised and allowed us to explore the impressive Atlas mountains.

The staff are universally friendly and attentive. They are young, enthusiastic and aim to please.

The food is good. The menu on offer is small, but each dish was tasty, well presented and attentively served.

The only complaint I have about the whole experience was a very bad case of stomach flu which we each had shortly after leaving Kasbah Angour. Since we ate all our meals from the hotel, it must have been the source. But, I theorize it was some fresh fruit we had in a picnic provided on one of our day hikes.

So forget fresh fruit, which is always good advice in such countries anyway, and enjoy a stay at Kasbah Angour.

Room Tip: The hotel seems, very wisely, to put families in one wing and couples in another on the other side o...
