“Beautiful location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at Gite Atlas. We were greeted by Housein in the village of Imlil, where he brought us to the guesthouse, not to mention carry my backpack for me for the 15 minute uphill walk! The place sits high in the village of Imlil, making for stunning views out of every window & terrace. (Standing on the rooftop was like heaven.) Our room was simple, but clean and charming. Each day we recieved breakfast and dinner, which was included in the modest price of 200 dirhams (20 euros) per night. There was also no shortage of mint tea! The only negative thing I have to say about Gite Atlas, is the cleanliness of the toilets. Often the floors were covered in water and the toilets themselves definitently needed a good scrubbing. Other than that, everything was perfect. Definitely recommened if you want a simple, honest accommodation with a real Moroccan family.

Room Tip: All the rooms are similar, but I would recommend choosing one on the top (main) floor if you have an...

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Gite Atlas. We were given a good deal for a stay with breakfast and diner included. The family is super kind and the location is like heaven. The only point they should improve is the cleanliness in some of the bathrooms. Apart from that it was a super stay and will definately come again!

The Gite Atlas Mazik was wonderful. Both the atmosphere of the hotel and the staff gave a very nice and comfortable experience, and the stay was very pleasurable.

The staff were kind and helpful, and the guided tours are highly recommended, since it gives an intimate insight into the nature. The area is in general beautiful, but the view from the terrace of the hotel made every morning seem like a painting, and the air was fresh and birds were singing around the windows in the morning.

The food was also excellent, and gave a taste of the local style of cooking, with typical berber ingredients and dishes.

It is very highly recommended!

We loved staying with Ibrahim and his big family. Ibrahim and his son, Housein, were fantastic hosts. Always smiling. Their response to every request is, "It's no problem." Another son, Hamid, led us through the village to the start of a hike up to the pass and sent us on our way. You can request a family member as a guide or just go yourself as we did. The view from the pass was stunning. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying here. For backpackers or anyone who wants to experience the lifestyle of a Berber mountain village, you can't go wrong here. If you want faux luxury trappings, best to stay in Marrakech at some fancy riad. But I'm so glad we made the trip here. The drive up the mountain at night was thrilling to say the least. Then you go by foot from the town to the nearby village, about a 20 minute walk. Bring a backpack, not a suitcase. Thank you so much, Ibrahim, for our wonderful stay. Meeting you and your family was one of the highlights of our trip.

Was staying in this Little hotel After climbing in the toubkal Area. Ibrahim, the owner of the House, is a very grienend and good-hearted man, who helped me whereever possible and was Interested in my Adventures up there. The Family serves excellent food and the great tea - to which i am already addicted - and they have wireless LAN, so i could make some calls Home out of the Atlas Mountains.
Shoukran to Ibrahim and His Family, I really enjoyed staying here.

When Ibrahim picked me up from central Imlil, I thought that maybe his hostel was 5 minutes away. 20 minutes later, after the road had turned into a little mountain pathway, a simple river crossing and a tour through the narrow lanes of Mazik (or M'zik), we arrived at the hostel.
If you're looking for luxury, this isn't the place (and this is reflected in the price) - but this is somewhere with fantastic views, simple comfortable rooms (as the temperature drops, Ibrahim gives you more and more blankets) and wonderful warm relationships with Ibrahim, his family, and other guests.
Also great vegetarian food! Ask for the omlette - the best thing I ate in all of Morocco.

I stayed at this place for 2 weeks whilst training and travelling in Morocco. It is very nice with a great view, european toilet and very welcoming owners. I would recommend that people who stay here also order 3 meals as the food is brilliant. It is a traditional berber house in a small villae at the base of toubkal which was ideal for our base camp for climbing Toubkal.

Room Tip: they were all very nice
