“A real cultural heart warming experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2011

A night at the Berber cultural centre is a must if you want to really experience Morocco. Not really a hotel more an experience. When you arrive you participate in cooking your own lunch which includes cooking your own bread in the community oven. Very basic facilities but that all part of the experience and worth suffering the bed to enjoy listening to music payed but a whole group from the village not paid musicians for the tourist but friendly people who just let us share in their evening. We all learnt so much about the culture, probably the highlight of our trip. GO.

We stayed at the Berber Cultural Centre with our two boys aged 5 and 8 and some friends. The staff were very welcoming and it was an excellent place for the children to explore and play. You are allowed into Berber village life in a very authentic and genuine way; Mohammed the owner's English is excellent and he is a very pleasant host. You can get invloved in food preparation and tea making or juts relax or go walking.The furnishings are simple, in keeping with the rural setting. I would advise taking your own pillow if possible and plenty of warm clothes if you are going in the winter/ spring as the nights are cold high up. They offer trekking too but we managed just a walk round the village.

Our stay at the Berber culture centre was fabulous. We were there only for a short time, but felt like members of the family of the friendly host-family, who included us in many of their regular experiences, from making tagine, bread, going for guided walks in the surrounding hills and villages, a few words... but perhaps the most memorable part of this process for me was the tea competition which is truly celebrated in style (be warned, they will judge you fairly!)
I would mention that the water is not hot, but that too is perhaps part of the berber experience.
I really hope to be able to return - it was great.
