“Bit of an odd spot”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We spent one night here as part of our tour through Morocco. On arrival at the hotel we thought this was going to be really, really good, obviously it's in a beautiful location which is a great start. Check in was quick and efficient but it was there that we started to think that this was not going to be what we first thought. The rooms are very basic and the hot water didn't work when they said it was going to work, so this involved a trip by management coming to our room to believe what we were saying before the hot water was then obviously turned on. It then did come through, and it was hot! The bar was a secretive, locked up den that they didn't appear to feel comfortable with you in it and they seemed to watch and follow you around, and indicate you weren't allowed to sit in the bar so you ended up sitting in the restaurant which lacked atmosphere. The food was very basic, we were on a set menu as part of a package, but the food was very bland and the restaurant was very basic with no music or atmosphere so anyone else in the restaurant could hear your conversation, and you just basically felt uncomfortable. Breakfast was also another big disappointment, with similar issues to dinner. Overall this was a very strange experience, and the only way to describe is that it felt a bit inbred.

After a long ride on the motorbikes,this made a very pleasant place to stay.We were told to park our bikes under the hotel to be safe :-) The evening meal was lovely and the staff helpful at all time..A river to go sit by was just across the road and a nice valley to walk up.A good base to use to explore the surrounding area..Thanks again to the boss and all his staff :-))

Room Tip: Any of the rooms great

The hotel has a great location in the valley, a waterfall and massive red rocks just behind the window. Beautiful! The hotel and its rooms are very clean and decorated in Moroccan style, full of colours and oriental design. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food - delicious. We could really rest in this hotel and in the morning, full of energy, set off on the further yourney.

We just stopped for lunch at the restaurant here on the way to the gorge. The food was reasonably priced, very tasty, and as usual far too much of it. The waiters were attentive and kept bringing bread and olive refills, which we didn't want and worried that it would be added to the bill, but it wasn't and we didn't even have to pay for the first round of bread and olives so that was a bonus.

We had not high expectations as we had been said that the hotels in the valleys could have no hot water and very shabby rooms. On the contrary, we found a very simple bathroom (WC and shower together and no place to hang anything) but a really hot shower, spacious room (no heating but plenty of blankets were provided) and a very nice dinner room were we had both a delicious supper (but the tea) and a very good brekfast as well. The location around is gorgeous!

We were part of a small group heading to the desert from Marrakesh. So, this place was chosen by the tour operator.

Our room had a super large balcony & overlooked the adjacent river. Rooms were clean & looked new compared to some of the common areas.

Food service was not so great. When food is served for a group, very small quantity is served that doesn't even last one round of serving!
