“A lovely little hotel in the hills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2008

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our trip to Morocco. It’s quite a small hotel, with only about 30 rooms and appeared to mainly attract short stay guests. There is very little to do at the hotel itself – there is a swimming pool and tennis courts, a small seating/bar area in reception and a restaurant. The main things that should attract you to this hotel are the views and the walking. Over the time we were there, we did a walk to the Kasbah on the hill above the hotel (2hrs), to the waterfalls below the hotel (3hrs) and in the hills near the hotel (4hrs). One of the hotel staff, M’Barek, accompanied us on our trip to the waterfalls which was great – I’m not sure we would have found our way without him. All the staff in the hotel were brilliant and the food we had for lunch and dinner was very good – I particularly recommend the Honey and Almond chicken. Breakfast wasn’t as good though – mainly bread and jam but you could ask for eggs as well. Our room was a good size and we certainly appreciated the radiator and electric heater that we had as the temperature dived in the evenings. The log fires in reception and the restaurant were also very useful. The views from the hotel terrace are amazing on a clear, sunny day – you can almost see the coast. All in all, this is a lovely hotel if you want to get away from it all, or need somewhere to stop overnight, but if you’re after lots of things to do then you might want to look elsewhere. It’s worth bearing in mind that there are no cashpoints or banks in this area, but the hotel will change Euros and Sterling.

Stayed March 2008

We arrived from the coast via Paradise Valley and found this quiet old hotel perched on top of the cascades relaxing and friendly. Take a ground floor room so you can walk down (lots of steps) to the pool and dine on the terrace with stunning views down the valley. No credit cards taken but you can pay in foriegn currencies. The waterfalls were dry in May (not much rain this year) so plan to go in spring if you can. Good walks and donkey trips

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2007

Stopped here in September 2006, and after the horrors of Agadir this hotel was lovely. Stunning position looking down into a valley with beautiful sunsets. Pleasant terrace to eat on in the day and take in the views .Rooms were basic but clean and the food good. We were on a full board deal and the hotel really tried to give us a good variety during our two day stay. There is a pool which could have been cleaner and a tennis court , reached by a garden path covered with different flowers meandering down the hillside. The drive up to Immouzer is worth the trip alone and winds up into the mountains form the sea. One of the hotel staff took us on a tour of the surrounding hills to see how the local people lived. The waterfalls were dry of course but must be a spectacular site after the rains.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to see a small part of the real Morocco and stay in a quiet unassuming hotel. It maybe a short drive from Agadir but there is a world of difference in what you discover.
