“Beautiful site,but not perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I needed a room for one night whilst travelling north, but didn't like the idea of Marrakech, so booked here. It's an impressive looking site with immaculate pool and gardens, room was also very clean and spacious. I was warned that the restaurant closed early,(in fact around 6pm) which meant that the only WiFi available was outside, resulting in me huddled out of the weather under a parasol. On returning to my room there was insufficient lighting to read by, apart from the shaver light above the sink.....thank goodness for head torches! Road noise was also something of a problem being located right on a four lane highway leading out of the city. Biggest surprise was breakfast, the smallest I've been served with anywhere......two pieces of bread,a croissant, red jam coffee and awful sweetened juice. The cost per night really warranted something better........as a camp-site this place is probably excellent, as a B&B, it could really do better.

We stayed here for a month, so that tells a lot about how we found it. We loved the owners and found them helpful and welcoming. The site is beautifully laid out for camping cars with good facilities to dump waste and fill with water. The pitches are well-defined and separated by trees and shrubs. The ablution blocks are clean and comfortable with hot showers - which is a rarity in Morocco, generally! However, we did find a few things which detracted from our overall enjoyment of the Camp. There is traffic noise. It is on the edge of a busy road, and you cannot get away from that. (Thank God camping cars are pretty well insulated and sound proof and it was winter so windows were closed). We found the restaurant closing at 6:00pm and also not open on Mondays was a disappointment, particularly as the internet coverage for our own internet was not good and we had to rely on the wifi in the restaurant. But, taking all that into consideration, we did love the place and its little villages close by where we bought our veg and fruit.

After finding a hotel in the old city of MARRAKECH and going thorugh a night mare them first night we looked for another hotel and found this one.

The staff are amazing and the hotel is clean. You feel very welcomed and the food and drinks arent over priced like most places.

Rooms are clean and the pool is huge with nice plants and a nicely looked after garden.

Would definitely book to go there again if i go MARRAKECH.

They even arranged a cab service where ever we went and never over priced us. every where else seems to just care about what comes in money wise and the customer care is mind my anguage crap. But these guys are down to earth canadian couple. Husband is like a really friendly WWF wrestler and the wife is so friendly and helpful also.

Its not too close to the city but with a 10 15 minute cab ride your almost anywhere and its in a quiet location so perfect for a relaxing holiday getaway

THUMBS UP

Room Tip: book in advance as there are only 7 large rooms to rent or there is a camping site behind where you...

Stayed for 5 nights and had an amazing time!!
Our twin room was spacious, clean and overlooked the swimming pool and beautiful snow capped mountains.
Ourika-Camp is in the perfect location for exploring the city (there's a local bus pick-up just outside the site) and exploring the mountains and is such a good place to retreat too after a busy day in the Medina!
The staff were fantastic and extremely friendly and and I would definitely recommend eating in the restaurant, the food and service were great.
I had a really great few days, the perfect combination of culture and chilling out by the pool.

We just stayed there for a week in march. The only problem is that the camp is next to a road so a bit noisy. Next to that the rooms are spacious and very clean. The swimming pool is great and the restaurant too. Try their couscous on fridays, we had our best couscous ever.

Staff are friendly.

The perfect place to relax and discover Down Town Marrakech. Beautiful rooms on the first floor overlooking the garden and the pool. Busses and taxis stop right in front, only 10km from the Medina and souk. It was great to return to this oasis of tranquility and the great pool after a crazy exciting day Down Town.
Breakfast (included) is served on the terrace by the pool while looking at the Atlas Mountains.
The pool and the large garden with lounge beds are a great extra on top of the spacious clean rooms. REAL VALUE FOR MONEY.

Thanks Jerome, we will be back on our next trip to Marrakech/ Morocco.
