“Unexpectedly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We wanted to do a day walk in the Zat Valley and needed somewhere convenient to stay. This hotel looked quite basic on the Internet so we weren't expecting much but we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a room upstairs with a little leafy balcony overlooking the large pool. The bed was comfortable and the shower was hot. The food was adequate without being special. The owner of the hotel was very friendly and helpful and organised a guide to take us for a hike in the Zat Valley at short notice. He was a very obliging person and certainly went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. By the way, the walk in the Zat Valley was excellent and we'd highly recommend it. We got a close up view of how the people farm their land, graze their goats and sheep, and live in the villages. Our visit to the school for 5 and 6 year olds was a delight.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs were brighter and of a higher standard.

This place is not somewhere you would book but if you are traveling and need somewhere to stop off for the night its perfect. Nice staff, good food, nice wine, rooms are alright but nothing special. There is also a pool that looks alright but it was a bit cold for that sort of think when we were there.

We stayed here for a spontaneous night as a stop-over during a long journey from the desert to the coast. We hadn't booked beforehand, but the staff were quick to welcome us and get a roaring fire and delicious dinner ready in the restaurant. The room was simple but adequate, with a very comfy bed and plenty of blankets. It had a nice pool and outdoor seating area, which we didn't use as it was too cold, but would be lovely in the summer. All in all, a great hotel that I'd recommend to any traveller.

After driving across the Atlas pass towards Marrakech this was a welcomed and spontaneous overnight stay. Simple but clean and very welcoming staff. Rooms basic but clean and quiet. Hot shower with good meal and breakfast included in price. Recommended as a reasonable price, basic hotel about 1 hour easy drive to the Marrakech airport.

We arrived here mid evening after crossing the pass over the Atlas, without a booking - but no problem, a friendly welcome and a specially prepared meal was on offer. The room was basic and had a few faults (notably a leaking sink and a broken door handle), but we got a comfortable and undisturbed night's sleep and a hot shower. Excellent value, too.

The rooms and facilities at Le Coq Hardi are basic but the location, cleanliness, hospitality are exemplary. You can see that they are investing a lot of time and money to try to improve the facilities and everything that has been completed so far has been done to an excellent standard. As stated in previous comments there is no heating in the rooms so if you are staying in the winter months, there are plenty of spare blankets are provided and the water is nice and hot!
Le Coq Hardi is well placed for the airport and to visit Marrakesh, without actually being in the noise of the town. Morran will happily organise a taxi for you. It is also a perfect place to stay when travelling from Ouarzazate.
There are wonderful walks along the river where you can hear nightingales sing there hearts out. You can also go horse back riding and quad-biking if you so wish or just sit on the terrace have a coffee over looking the river.
They have a lovely swimming pool, which is not heated but wonderful in the warmer weather!! You will also find two tortoise in the garden, one I believe they rescued but the other just made his home there!
The food is wonderful, traditional excellent and good value for money. Breakfast again is fantastic fresh Moroccan style and in the summer served in the garden.
It is very good value for money and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It can be a real home from home.
