“An Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Whilst it is situated out of the town of Erfoud and once there there is no where else to go, it good after a long drive. The pool was welcomed.
The food was OK - dinner and breakfast.
The room and bathroom was spacious.

Lovely, spacious room with a great bathroom. Plenty of space to spread out and a refreshing pool that felt great after the long drive. Food was okay, breakfast wasn't much variety. Great service and free wifi were appreciated.

Delightful African flavoured hotel on the edge of the Sahara. After being in a car all day from Fes to Erfoud what a delight it was to arrive here.

The first thing I did was have a swim in the wonderful swimming pool - it was just so refreshing. For those of you that like you water a little warmer they have a heated pool as well.

The rooms are great you feel as though you are in an extremely tastefully decorated up market mud hut (although you are not in a hut at all).

I thought it was kind of cute that they have a swim up bar in the pool, however when I arrived at 5 pm there was no-one manning it. I also had to laugh they said dinner would be ready at 7:30, when I turned up there (hoping to get a really eary night) thet said sorry dinner is running behind and wasn't ready for another 40 minutes.

This is a wonderfully unique hotel and I would thoroughly recommend it.

The Hotel Kasbah Xaluca is situated a few kilometres outside the dusty desert town of Erfoud, well known for the quality of its dates. The hotel is built in the style of a fortified village with several blocks of rooms each around a small courtyard and one larger, two story building around à large courtyard. Lots of antiques. Our room had a rustic stone slabs floor in the sleeping area and ceramic tiles in the bathroom area. There was huge shower corner, a separate room for the toilet and the pièce de résistance, a beautiful marble washbasin with some fossils highlighted. The Erfoud region is famous for this type of marble. The breakfast and dinner buffet were by far the best and most elaborate we had on our trip through Morocco. Staff was well trained and friendly, obviously happy to work there. WiFi worked well in the lobby area. The hotel caters to groups, but the have it downy to perfection.

This hotel is heaven on earth! It's magical. Once you go there you want to stay for ever. It is nothing like any other hotel you have been. I'll come back to Morroco to stay there for at least a week. The pool is great in day and night. The staff is SO polite. The food is great and the rooms are traditional and perfect.

The Xaluca Erfoud Hotel is a real beauty. It’s located as far east of the country as possible close to the Sahara desert, and from there you can go out into the desert and feel that you are really getting into no man’s land. The Kasbah is a type of construction that looks and feels like African housing. It’s comfortable inside and very charmingly decorated. There is an awesome pool in the middle of the courtyard, and the hotel is full of date trees and desert vegetations that makes it look like an oasis. The breakfast which was included was abundant and very good.

This hotel was a high point on a tour of Morocco. Rooms are dessert chic with local fossil stone carved sinks. Pool is beautiful. Enjoyed breakfasts around the pool and the concierge is worth a couple of pictures. Could have stayed more days to lounge and explore the Sahara.
