“Discover Ksar Ouled Driss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Delayed by sandstorms on a recent extended trip through the south of Morocco, I spent
two nights in the town of Ouled Driss, 8kms before M’hamid, on the edge of the Sahara.

Here in the ancient Ksar Ouled Driss dating back to the 17th century, I discovered the traditional guesthouse Dar Talhaya and my host Hassan. Rooms are comfortable with
ensuite bathrooms; the large terrace provides a restful haven for tea or for taking in views
of the surrounding Ksar or you can relax in the large seating area on the ground floor.
Home cooked meals are delicious, prepared and served by Hassan. Hassan is highly
knowledgeable of the Ksar and its history and will accompany you on a walk through
its’ corridors, passageways, and museum; excursions & bivouacs to the desert can also be arranged. Prices are reasonable.
My trip may have been delayed by sandstorms, but I discovered Dar Talhaya, the Ksar Ouled Driss and Hassan invited me to a village wedding. Highly recommended.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with friends

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2011

If you want to spend a night in a real Kasbah, this place is where you should do this. Very clean and comfortable, nice rooms and wonderful food. On top: reasonable prices. The staff is very friendly an helpful. English is spoken and even some german. Hassan takes care of any wish.

When we had to leave, we even felt sad, since we rather felt like guests than clients. Absoletely recommendable!
