I really enjoyed my stay at Kasbah Igoudar. I booked it through a deal with Voyage Prive, and it was excellent value. The hotel is indeed a while from Marrakech - 45km, about 40minutes in a taxi. However, the drive is beautiful and it is well worth staying closer to the Atlas Mountains.
The rooms were comfortable and I would describe them as "simple luxury". My only complaint would be that the water pressure in the shower is not great.
We ate in the hotel a number of times, all the food is prepared freshly by a Berber lady and it is excellent. The staff were very accommodating, letting us eat in the 'snug', and also built a fire to keep us warm at night.
You can borrow bikes from the hotel for free which was good fun, as the surrounding area is beautiful and a bike is much easier than foot to get around. We also did one of the day trips to Imlil, in the Atlas Mountains, which was organised by the hotel. They were very flexible and helpful.
I didn't go in the pool as the weather wasn't great but the pool area itself is lovely, with a bar, sun lounger 'beds' and table tennis.
Overall, it was a very relaxing and romantic trip. If you want to be going out every night then it is not the right location, but it is perfect if you want to get away from it all.
