We spent 5 very relaxing days at this hotel with our two children aged 5 and 2 ½.
This is a small, friendly place about 20-25 minutes from the Djama el Fna. Its highlights are without a doubt the wonderful, immaculately maintained garden and the beautiful heated swimming pool whcih acts as a focal point for the hotel. Service is attentive without being invasive and the food, while simple, is delicious and authentic. Minor glitches -eg temperamental plumbing- are fixed immediately when they occur and the atmosphere is one of relaxed luxury.
Our children had such a wonderful time playing in the garden and swimming in the pool that they keep asking us when we can go back! They "want to live in Morocco", and declared Dar Ilham the best place they've ever been to. Surely the sign of a great holiday! Although this is not a family hotel it is ideally suited for families due to its size, secluded location and friendly service.
Its distance from the center of town is at the same time its blessing- complete, wonderful quiet- and its weak point- transports can be expensive and problematic especially in high season when taxis are scarce. The introduction of a shuttle service to and from town would solve this issue and make this lovely hotel perfect.
