On the edge of the desert , Hotel RIAD KSAR IGHNDA opens its doors for you onto the Atlas Mountains. I stopped here to have lunch after visiting the UNESCO listed site of Aït Benhaddou nearby. I didn’t stay the night, but was very impressed how it blended with the local environment and offered all the luxurious and modern place... More

Great place to stay while visiting the desert region of Morocco. The food wasn't very good but the room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The wifi was decent, though not amazing. The grounds are very pretty though! Overall, nice place to stay when passing through!

This riad has a beautifully appointed courtyard with pool and well done landscaping. It is most relaxing to sit by the pool. Our room was adequate, however, we did have a bit of a problem with the drainage of the shower - it would overflow into our room. The towels absorbed it but they really should do something about this... More

This was very weird. The resort is gorgeous, but our room had some issues. We had ants coming thru the only window that we could open. The bathroom was tiny and had a strange shower that had a very high floor pan. This is a recipe for disaster! But the bed was wonderful, best night of sleep I had experienced... More

I stayed here in May 2016 with a group of 13 other people. I found Ksar Ighnanda beautiful but lacking in charm or authenticity. The grounds and our room were well maintained. However, our double room was so small we had to move the furniture around in order not to trip over our suitcases. The dinner buffet seemed uninspired, although... More

Beautiful high end riad with beautifully landscaped grounds very close to Ait Ben Haddou (UNESCO Site). Our rooms were comfy, a bit cramped and bathroom was non-functional. However, we had a private patio that offered a beautiful view of the palmeraie in the valley and the back of Ait Ben Haddou. The restaurant serves a set menu for dinner and... More

We visited this riad hotel in the middle of no where on our way to another city. We stopped only for lunch and a cooling swim - I wish we had stayed longer! What a beautiful oasis in the middle of dusty desert and the food was some of the best we had in Morocco. I hope to return to... More

A very impressive Riad located in the middle of nowhere in the desert. A Riad but also a resort with an impressive garden and pool. Rooms were small and bath towels were thin and rough. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore and take pictures. Food and service was nice for a larger style Riad. I would have been able... More

I really enjoyed Riad Ksar Ighnda, Riad Salam Fez and Kasbah Hotel Xaluca Maadid was beyond a spectacular experience. All three places provided a different kind of Moroccan feel and experience and the Kasbah Hotel Xaluca Maadid was off the charts spectacular in it's attention to decorative detail and environmental realism.
