“Woulderful place to stay after the trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

After our trekking in the mountains this place was a lovely home to come in to as it is based in local Berber village .
We welcomed by lahcen igdem who have been very helpful and knowledgeable with great English and who led us to his balcony overlooking Mount Toubkal.He brought us walnuts and almonds and encouraged us to make mint tea under his guidance .Houssain brought us the most incredible diner of Moroccan salad, a superb and authentic lamb tagine with preserved lemons, onions and prunes and a couscous and vegetable tagine which we all shared..Breakfast was delicious with crepes and flat breads with jams, honey, eggs and cheese along with tea and coffee ,Mint tea provided all the time exc...
If you looking for wonderful atmosphere ,nature and Berber experience and away from busy town of imlil this is the place for you.

We really loved this place thanks to lahcen and his family too .

I didn't stay at the lodge, but had an amazing trek to get there and enjoyed a lovely lunch. Lahcen showed us step by step how to make Berber mint tea - and it was worth the lesson because the tea tasted great.

Lahcen, our guide, took us on a most interesting hike to and through his Berber village. At his home, we enjoyed taking part in a tea serving preparation and experienced a wonderful meal made by him and his family. Lahcen's home is comprised of lovely spacious rooms.
Lahcen was a most gracious host, clearly explained what was happening. I highly recommend using Lahcen's services in Morocco's Imlil Toubkal area.

I stayed here during the Easter holidays and was so pleased to receive such generous hospitality and a spotless room (unlike many of the other places I had stayed in in Morocco!). Lahcen makes every effort to make sure his guests are comfortable and serves a wonderful breakfast on the terrace and a delicious three course evening meal each day. Lahcen speaks very good English, which is quite unusual in Morocco. He is also a tour guide so can give you advice about where to hike and seems to know everything there is to know about the local area. The accommodation is quite basic, but as a base for exploring the mountains it has all you need. The lodge is located a short walk from Imlil and the views from the terrace are beautiful. I will certainly return when i visit the Atlas Mountains again in the future.

Toubkal Lodge was the most welcoming place we stay at in just under a month in Morocco. At the moment the accommodation is the same as most gites/hostels with shared rooms with mattresses, blankets and pillows. Despite being basic it is immaculately clean and tidy and is decorated well. The owner Lahcen works extremely hard as a mountain guide and is putting the same effort in to setting up his business. He plans to have a variety of rooms with en suites, family rooms, etc (with beds not mattresses). The progress is fast and even in the three days we were there he had bought matching crockery, I have no doubt in my mind that this will soon be the top gite in the Imlil/High Atlas area!

The food was incredible! Evening meals were three large courses, perfect for after a days trekking, each meal was different and we were very grateful for the variety after three weeks in Morocco already. Breakfast was also very substantial with crepes and flat breads (freshly made for when you wish) with jams, honey, eggs and cheese along with tea and coffee. They provided bottle water and lots of Berber whiskey (mint tea) as well as other teas and would happily leave the sugar out (unlike many places where it is just far to sweet to drink!). The family produce many ingredients themselves with freshly made butter from their cow, eggs from their chickens and homemade breads. Lahcen also hopes to set up a cooking class which we will have to return for as I wish I could recreate it here.

The view from the roof terrace was beautiful whilst eating our breakfast in the sun and we were lucky enough to have snow on the mountains and blossom on the trees. Lahcen's English was perfect as well as other languages he speaks and was able to talk in depth about the agriculture, wildlife and cultural aspects of life in the High Atlas. He organised guides and mules for are travels and suggested walks if we wish to go it alone.

I hope I have done the place justice with my review as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, an hope to go back soon, inshallah. We wish Lahcen all the best for the future.
