Arrived in torrential rain but umbrellas were found and we arrived at our rustic but very spacious room dry if rather cold.A fire was lit and extra blankets found and we were soon snug.We were a little under clothed a could have done with a few extra layers.
Awaking in the morning to sunshine we could fully appreciate the beautiful setting of the hotel surrounded by the snow capped High Atlas peaks.It is set in a large area of olive and fruit trees which were alive with birds and has a lovely pool with lots of loungers and tables and chairs to relax on.
Breakfast was good and the restaurant which served good Italian/Moroccan food was reasonable and changed its menu each day.A good range of wines was available.
It is a good trekking base and local guides are available for a variety of routes .The staff could not have been more helpful or hospitable and the manageress even took us to the local market in her car.
A great place to relax and chill before or after the manic atmosphere of Marrakech,
