You have to work a little to get there--it's in a small mountain Berber village next to Toubkal...best place to take off from if you are trekking around Toubkal, or climbing it. As another reviewer pointed out, resist the scouts trying to get you to stay in Imlil--this is just a little bit further and well worth the extra time. You have a 360 degree view of the valleys and other mountain villages, that from the roof top terrace will take your breath away...I even enjoyed climbing around the narrow rocky lanes of the village to explore and chat with the locals--who were very friendly--, while my companion worked on climbing Toubkal.
The host, Brahim, could not have been more helpful or generous with his time, and he was responsible for the food that was close to perfect tagine! Also had lovely breakfasts that he made...all served in the traditional Moroccan style, with lots of plates of goodies and very very colorful. It was simply great.
The rooms were clean and pleasant and the bathroom was modern--rather amazing as we were up so high and away from the rest of the world. If you are going to do Toubkal, you must stay at this auberge! You won't regret it!
