“A great base for exploring the mountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We spend two nights in Dar Imlil, before splashing out on one night in the Kasbah du Toubkal. We had a great, very spacious room with views on the Kasbah, a private balcony and very comfy bed (this was the superior room on the top floor). The service and breakfast was great, in line with the tradition of Berber hospitality. Although we were never able to finish the giant portions we were given! We decided only in the evening that we would like to go trekking the next day and the Riad staff swiftly organised an excellent english-speaking mountain guide, hiking boots (I had left mine at home) and a mule to carry our lunch (how brilliant is that!) Imlil was our favourite place in Morroco and we would stay at the Riad again any time!

As everyone has already said this place is fantastic. Super friendly/helpful staff, great breakfasts. home cooked hearty evening meals if you choose to eat-in huge and comfortable rooms with beautiful views. My tip is to pay the extra for the superior rooms on the top floor. You won't be disappointed the views are stunning! This place was for me the perfect hotel can't say enough good things about the place and the staff.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor superior rooms. Ask for one with a view of the kasbah (I think maybe 9 or 10 bu...

Spent two nights in a double+xtra bed on the second floor, nice large room with views of the mountain, very well appointed. Ambiance at this mountain hotel is just in unison with the scenery and the people.
Breakfast and service were great. We got half-board booked by the agent and the dinner the first day was really uninspiring, but far better the second day.
All in all, concur with reviews.

If you are blessed to visit Imlil you will find no better place than Dar Imlil. Yes, of course there is the Toukbal Hotel which is very beautiful & luxurious, however, for location, price & staff there is absolutely no comparison. From waiting staff to cleaners there is a friendliness that makes you feel right at home. Abdul is in charge and he will never let you down or try to pressurise you to take a trip etc. he is a professional in every sense of the word with a very kind heart. I would come back just to visit him & the others at the hotel. A tip- Fatima was willing to do a henna tattoo for all of 25D. Second tip- go on the donkey trek. It is staggeringly beautiful. Tipping is very important to the guides in the region. We tipped around 100D to each muleteer (about £8). They work very hard and are extremely grateful. Do go to Cafe or hotel de Soleil. It was the best tagine we had! As far as our room- The views from the upper terrace were breathtaking. The whole atmosphere at Dar Imlil is peaceful simplicity.

Riad Dar was the perfect stop off before a trip into the high Atlas. Abdou was an incredible host who organised transfers and did everything to help make our stay more enojyable and comfortable. Wifi was an added bonus given our remoteness as was the game of scrabble after dinner. Would not hesitate to go back or recommend

We had a fantastic time here-we were on the top terrace-heater in the room to keep us warm-soft drinks and tea were in the room.Food was excellent -staff were v friendly and just wanted the visit to be perfect. On the second night we had a power cut in our room straight away we were given a different room-v luxurious-but it was not an issue.Big wood burner was brilliant in the evenings when it got chilly.V efficient staff the manager in particular was v informative -chatty and helpful. Wish we had stayed longer

Room Tip: De-luxe rooms-expensive but worth it-under floor heating-TV-2 balconies-massive

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a trip to Marrakech and wished we had been there longer. Amazing location, huge beautiful room and more food than you could ever manage to eat. Staff were first rate and could not do enough to help make the stay comfortable. Went for a trek with the guide they organised for us which was a great day, even had a hamam ready for us when we returned. Would not hesitate to go back but this time for longer!
