“Rustic charm - truly beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

4 of us stayed in one of the Kasbahs for 3 nights at the end of May 2010, before we ventured into the medina for 4 nights. There are 3 separate kasbahs (fortified houses) each with a terrace (upper) suite, a garden suite and a double room. We had both suites in Kasbah 'Ayour'. This place is set in the Palmeriae area on the outskirts of Marrakech and is away from the hustle and bustle. Great for a relaxing trip before the madness of the medina! The staff were friendly and helpful - I think they are in the process of changing ownership as Jeremy and his brother seemed to be taking over.

The whole kasbah complex is visually stunning, although rustic - and the suites were large and full of traditional furniture and architecture. Each kasbah has a pool and ours was the better of the three (one seemed to be shut at the time we were there and we got a few couples turning up at our pool). Lovely quiet rural setting with a view of the Atlas mountains and many birds in the gardens (three owls were a regular feature at the back of the kasbah!)

The restaurant was lovely with a big open air centre with a pond and huge fireplace (not lit when we were there!). Food good- but no choice- you just ask for lunch or dinner and enjoy the surprise! We ate very well with four courses for 10 Euro for lunch and 16 Euro for dinner. Alcohol is served and is about 4 Euro for a Casablanca beer and 10-14 Euro for a bottle of wine.

There is a minibus service which we didn't use, to the medina for 10 Euro per day per room with about 5 trips during the day and up to about 11 at night. We did one trip while we where there which Aziz organised- a camel trip to a berber house. The trip is done from a place about 5 minutes car ride and cost 25 Euro each. It was well worth it - we were on the camels for about 2 hours with a stop at a fantastic berber house for snacks and mint tea- didn't feel like a tourist trap at all and our guide (Eddie Murphy) really made the trip for us.

The only slight negative I would say about this place is that the rooms were dark and there was no place to hang clothes or any drawers to unpack in. Not a major problem. Also - check your bill as we didn't and found out later that we had been charged for a lunch that we didn't have! (Oh well, live and learn)!

We stayed in April 2007. A wonderful stay for two nights away from the bustle of Marrakech. Host was wonderful. Dinner was very intimate in the tent style dining room. The kasbhs were very cool and comfortable and what you would envision when you thing of Morocco. The bathrooms - very nice. A great place - would love to return for a week.

We stayed at the Tiwaline at the end of March and found this the perfect place for us. The contrast between the fantastic bustle and noise of Marrakech and the serenity of Tiwaline was perfect for a mixed group of 30 somethings. Taxis fares were ok split between the five of us. Hospitality and warmth of the owners helped make this a special place.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2007

We stayed at Kasbah Tiwaline for 3 nights in April 2007.

The location is about 12 km from the Medina which is the heart of Marrakech. This place may not be for you if you like to be in the middle of all the action. However, Marrakech can be a bit overwhelming and this is a wonderful getaway, only 20 minutes by taxi (10 Euros), to get back to after a hectic day in the souks.

The owners are a lovely Franco-Morrocan couple and do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The rooms are simple with lots of character. The central dining area is set out in traditional Moroccan courtyard style and the staff are always on hand to cater to your needs. The food is delicious.

Would return!!!

The Kasbah Tiwaline Hotel in Marrakesh is a place I'll always remember. Its rooms screamed Morocco to me; the restoration of this hotel was done with great care to reflect local traditional construction.
I stayed at Kasbah Tiwaline for 7 nights (with a friend) in January 2007.
The hotel is located Marrakesh, Morocco, in a plush and quiet residential area.
The hotel staff (from receptionists to housekeeping) were very polite and welcoming.
Description
•Charming Hotel in the heart of the Palmeraie in Marrakesh.
•An excellent restaurant in the hotel
•Rooms are typically Berberian, quiet and romantic
•Summer is not a problem, Kasbah Tiwaline have air-conditioned.
•Moderately priced--cheap if you consider the charm

Originally planned to stay one night only, but ended up staying here for the rest of our holiday. We loved this traditional kasbah with tastefully decorated rooms and clever layout with your own outside space within a lovely garden. This, in combination with an exceptionally helpful staff makes it, in our eyes, an ideal place to stay if you are looking to get away from the hussle and bussle of the old town, while still being close enough to pay a visit - 15 min drive.

This was the venue for my wedding and accommodation for about 30 guests. 18 months of detailed planning and we were confronted with a Riad owner who delayed providing a written quote (we never got one in the end) until it was too late to change the location, and then proceeded to change his mind about a multitude of details of the deal at every step during the week of the wedding in effort to extract as much money as possible from us. He lied about the accommodation set-up from the start, so we were forced to compromise sleeping arrangements for guests just to accommodate everyone. We and our guests were effective hostages as new costs were charged and inclusions became 'extras'. The service was ordinary, the food provided to our guests was insubstantial, but most importantly the stress placed on us as we fought on a daily basis to overcome the mounting difficulties of dealing with this situation was unacceptable and threatened to unhinge this important event we worked hard to make happen. You could not believe this from a french owner but he gives a bad name to Moroccan tourism and business. My wife is Moroccan and we visit regularly and have never encountered such a negative way of doing business.
Kasbah Tiwaline is a headache you don't need.

  • Liked — The setting is unique
  • Disliked — The way these people do business is literally shocking.
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay clear of this place, they don't deserve your business
