Absolute top marks to the photographer who took the hotel pictures. It was the photos on the booking sites that caught our eye. The hotel is indeed set in lovely grounds with great views of the mountains. . If you want isolation you have it, in fact there is nothing around for miles. My daily walk brought me into contact with more goats than people. Marrakech is a good hours` drive away( make sure you have the hotel address when looking for return transport) Essentially that is the heart of the matter, you are part of the "captive" market. Food choice is limited, breakfasts unimaginative and dinners basic. Rooms are of good standard and clean and there are many areas around the grounds to relax by. Staff are friendly but i suggest the hotel has added on two maybe two and half stars more they should.

We were initially worried about this hotel given some of the reviews. Their website was non-existent and we struggled to find the reviews because it’s changed it’s name from Kasbah Igoudar. Our arrival in the dark was disconcerting indeed - you have to turn off the main road and travel down a dirt track for about 2 km. However the hotel does exist and once inside the gates it’s lovely. It was very quiet with hardly any guests around ( only 15 rooms)- we got shown to our rooms which were very clean and very nice. It is an hour from the airport and Marrakech so be aware but you can get the hotel shuttle which varies in price depending on how many people. For 2 people they charge 600dirhams return trip to Marrakech.They also organise trips to Ourika valley with same drivers. That cost 120euros for 3 with lunch and a guide up the valley included. It’s was ok but it’s really just a Berber village in the river valley set up to get money from tourists. I wouldn’t say the hotel is run down like one of the other reviews has said. The gardens are fab with the gardeners there clipping something or watering all the time and there is a builder type guy who is moving around tending to things like painting and fixing things up during the day. It’s really a very pleasant place to spend the day lazing about in the sun and gazing at the views. Tourist tax is to be expected as it is anywhere in Morocco and in fact most places you go to these days. Card transactions are charged at 4% not 10% as stated by another reviewer but we paid the bill with our dirhams to get rid of them because you can’t take them out of the country anyway.They also accept euros. We didn’t try the spa such as it was but it didn’t look like it was very extensive and there was no info on what was available. Pros Fabulous view of the Atlas Mountains Lovely night sky with no light pollution Staff were fantastic - always smiling and helpful. They seemed genuinely interested that you were happy with everything. Food delicious. Really tasty evening meals and also a few nice snacks for lunch - breakfast was usual Moroccan fare , pancakes, cake, bread but they also served everyone a fresh omelette every morning which was nice and eating breakfast outside in the sunshine (as long as you waited until 10 for sun to warm things up)in December was heaven. Beautiful well tended gardens Nice rooms very clean with a change of towels most days Cons Showers were awful - too hot or too cold, not pointing in the right direction for a good shower and leaking. This really does need to be improved. WiFi was not reliable. Half board menu very limited but main menu was fine and certainly enough choice for about a weeks stay. Restaurant could do with a bit more ambiance. No bar area as such to sit in with a drink in winter It’s a nice quiet place to stay and chill out for a few days in the sun with lovely views and friendly staff and nice food.

We couldn't find this hotel at first due to its recent name change to Taj Atlas and wrong location on google maps. The location on Google map for this hotel is seriously misleading and looks as though it is only 20 minutes from Marrakech; which is why i booked it and had planned my day accordingly. I didn't realise this hotel was in a remote location, about an hour from Marrakech. The views from the hotel is really incredible though. Make no mistake it is a very small hotel and seems like there is a lack of resource - both money and staff. We got one of the modern rooms and it was luxurious and very clean, though no real central heating, but I imagine that might be difficult to achieve given their eco approach. I didn't use the spa but it didn't look too promising which is a shame - there is definite scope for massive improvement there. Its remote location means you will wake up to birdsong and enjoy the gorgeous night sky without any light pollution. However, I think because of its remote location this type of resort should ONLY offer all inclusive packages. It's not like you have the option to eat dinner somewhere else - you will need a car to go anywhere. Perhaps that is something the management should consider. Again because of its location food choices are a little bit limited, BUT their food is delicious. We had the New Year's Eve buffet and it was really good. Breakfast is a set menu, however I didn't mind because it was actually really tasty and to be frank is just the right amount as well. In a standard buffet breakfast you stress so much deciding what to eat! No need for that here. The real shining stars of this hotel are its amazing staff even though it feels they might be stretched as there are not too many staff members. They are so helpful, friendly and welcoming (and always smiling) it really made a difference to our stay. Yassine in the restaurant was especially attentive to our needs and helped us so much - a big shout out to Yassine! With some cash injection and modernisation this resort has real potential to shine as a boutique wellness retreat that offers personalised service.

We booked the Taj Atlas (previously names Kasbah Igoudar) through Voyage Prive. Advertised as a 4 star hotel. Which is false advertising. Challenges: - Lack of communication (no idea of our booking, no intro for dinner/breakfast/beach towels) - Waited over 30 mins to get into our room on arrival - Room: desperate need of an upgrade. No central heating, lights not working, bathroom had no shower screen. - The hotel is pretty rundown. - People were talking outside our room and hammering the roof whilst we were in the room. - Things to note: tourist tax per day. 10% on any card transactions. Barely any WiFi. You get the same breakfast everyday. - We went for New Years and waited two hours for food. We had to pay 300 for this on top of our half board - Lots of staff but lacking in experience. Because the hotel is so remote you end up paying a premium for anything. Drinks, taxis, food, excursions. Saving grace: - Waiter staff are amazing. Yassine was great. - Dinners were great and authentic - Cleaning staff - every day clean towels and bed made amazing. - The views are incredible of the Atlas Mountains - It’s very remote and therefore peaceful and quiet. Which is what we wanted

Kasbah İgoudar (Taj Atlas) Hotel and Spa maybe some distance from Marrakesh city centre but the serenity, calmness and purity of the hotel and area is beyond belief. Living a busy life it was wonderful to stay in this oasis of calm nestled in an olive grove. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The restaurant served delicious food. Our stay was made special by the hotel staff who could do nothing more for us and always accomodating in our special request. We highly recommend this hotel and yes Marrakesh is only a short journey away and close enough to visit the sights and for dinner.

If you read my other trip advisor reviews, you’ll see I’m not one who regularly writes critical reviews. However, I really do think that the pictures and description of this hotel on various websites are misleading. We wanted a week away lying by a pool with good weather. To be fair, we got that. The pool area and the gardens are very attractive and the hotel has great views of the Atlas Mountains. The rest of the hotel is, frankly, shabby. The rooms are clean but poorly maintained. The air conditioning was old and noisy and the tv didn’t have any sound. There was no hairdryer in the room and, despite asking for one, it never materialised. We had 3 coat hangers in total in the room. The impression I had was that the hotel was being run on a shoestring budget. It certainly isn’t a five star hotel - three at best! Breakfast was poor. There is no choice. You are given a plate each day consisting of a small omelette, cake and a strange spongelike crepe! The pictures of a luxury buffet on various websites are just not accurate. The food menu is ok but it never changes. Also the pricing is all over the place and doesn’t seem to have any logic. Bearing in mind that the hotel is very isolated, the food just isn’t good enough. On that point, some sites say the hotel is 30 minutes from Marrakesh- it isn’t, its an hour drive! The hotel advertises itself as a spa and health retreat. That’s stretching it a bit. I had some ok treatments but there is no steam room and the spa bath looks like it hasn’t been used for years. The “gym” is a total waste of time. It consists of one small room with an old exercise bike, running machine, one weight bench and one barbell. That’s it. Given that I like to go to the gym on holiday, it was a huge disappointment. I really wanted to like this hotel. As I say, the grounds are nice as is the pool area. The rest leaves a lot to be desired. As another reviewer has commented, with some investment on the buildings and decent food, this hotel could be a gem. As it is, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Myself and my boyfriend visited for a week. The place is about 50 minutes away from the airport. We booked a transfer through the agency we booked the hotel with so we had no issue getting to the hotel. The room was gorgeous. Four post bed, huge sofa with bath and shower. It was cleaned everyday with a swan made with the towels for that lovely extra touch. The TV didn’t work but that was no issue as we didn’t really need it. The exterior is absolutely amazing. The swimming pool was a great size - although it is very dirty. There was lots of sun beds, umbrellas and the cutest seating by the pool for lunch/dinner time. The food was okay. Nothing amazing but it was doable. Breakfast was pretty much the same daily. An omelet, orange juice with some sweet/savoury bits on the side. We booked all inclusive but was told when we got there that they didn’t offer all inclusive...when we showed them our booking confirmation they confirmed it but we had to pay for drinks still which was annoying considering we paid extra to avoid that. We had to chose off the set menu so I ate the same thing every day. We had a massive problem with the amount of wasps around. Sitting outside eating or even when sunbathing they’re everywhere. When you’re allergic to wasp stings it is hard to just sit there calmly whilst they fly around you and land in your food. We had many fights with them. We booked 3 excursions through the hotel which were all great. Although you have to pay for these are cash so make sure you have enough if you are to book these. I would suggest if you’re going to get a transfer into Marrakech - you don’t need as long as you think in the centre. An afternoon is enough. All day is too long - it is very overwhelming. You can pay for the drinks/food bill in card at the end of your stay. Although they racked up a bill of more than we had worked out - when we questioned it and they printed off the bill. It was a technical error... The waiter staff were really friendly and helpful. We both came back from Morocco with bad stomach problems but I assume that’s just because food and water is different there.. Overall we had a nice weeks holiday.

Visited here for a week, never been to this country before so we had an open mind. Hotel stunning Room, beautiful 4 poster bed immaculate and cleaned everyday, bottle of water on arrival - nice touch Poolside, cleaned every morning, leather mattress sunloungers (careful they burn you by 11am!) waiters thrive on sun lounger service literally don’t have to move. Please note one delivery a week so if you drink the bar dry (🤦🏽‍♀️) of your favourite you’ll need to change. Food- breakfast was all consistent, omelette every morning served with fresh pancakes muffins toaties and scones, freshly squeezed orange and unlimited coffee/tea, option to eat inside or in the sunrise by the pool, beautiful. Evening meals Wow! However please remember that the set meal price has the same meals on it as the restaurant menu and is cheaper to order from... strange but there you go. Atmosphere, smal hotel don’t expect lively however waiters certainly up for a breath of fresh air and during our time Poolside playlist was uoto date and our room was to the back giving us privacy sit with a bottle of wine. The hotel is set an hour from airport DO NOT flag a taxi from airport, you will save a fortune phoning the hotel direct and they will send one....true story we learnt the hard way! You can’t exchange money from sterling to DH currency at the hotel, the airport rates were ridiculous (as you’d expect) however the hotel accepted card payment so plan on not taking cash. Unlike us we rocked up with Scottish notes only to be told in the city it was Fake money 🤣 plenty of cash machines in the city but that’s a planned journey A week away from “life” this is absolutely perfect

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel, the surroundings are so peaceful and relaxing. The pool and surrounding area are so picturesque, quiet and tranquil. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, who just want to unwind and recharge. We were lucky enough to be able to choose our room on arrival, the newer rooms near the back of the pool are more modern and nicer than the traditional rooms. The food here was good and reasonably priced seen as though there aren’t any other options in the area. As mentioned in other reviews, this hotel is a substantial distance away from the centre of Marrakesh, therefore taxi fares are very high if you want to visit the tourist attractions in the city centre. The staff were so lovely, so accommodating and they work very hard to keep all their customers happy. I would definitely return to this hotel when I just want some time to recharge in the sun.

Recently changed its name to Taj Atlas. Small cosy boutique hotel. Loved the well maintained gardens. Room is big with comfortable bed. Staff is very helpful. Ali, with a nice smile, always having a few words with us and asking whether all ok. Nice spa facilities, loved the hamam ritual done there. Thumbs up to Mona & team. Expected the breakfast to be more Moroccan rather than continental.
