“Great Location, Tired Hotel”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We spent one night at the hotel as part of package so we did not deliberately pick this hotel and we would n't have picked it had we had a choice. There are other hotels that are better and reasonably priced. My wife liked the hotel much better than I did because it had potential just seemed poorly run. I would have rated it poor but gave it average due to my wife liking it better than I. Overall, it just seemed run down and the proprietors seemed to cater to packaged guests so they don't seem to care too much how the place is kept or how they present it. It has potential but due to its location in a gorgeous valley and pleasant climate. The only redeeming quality of this hotel was dinner. It was a nice Tagine. Overall, wouldn't have chosen this hotel and won't return. The following are the pluses and minuses of the hotel:

+ Dinner
+ Location in the Valley
+ Man serving dinner was pleasant

- Room are tired
- Sink did not drain well
- Air conditioned didn't work in both rooms we stayed in and it was not a pleasant night sleep
- Lots of people sleeping in common areas which seemed odd and creepy
- Balcony door lock didn't work on one of the doors
- Bathroom door in of the rooms would not stay closed unless locked (it would just fling open)

Room Tip: Get a room where the air conditioning works.

The actual rooms are very basic with antiquated facilities. However, after a long day of hiking and rock climbing, the staff greeted us with warmth and arranged a very fun night of great food, drinks and entertainment. The staff doubled as musicians and singers passing around the Moroccan drums to us tourists. They even arranged breakfast packs for those of us who slept in a little too late. At the end of the day, the service and experience trumped the basic accommodations.

On the way to visit gorge, we stopped for lunch at Kasbah de la Vallee for lunch. We ate on the 2nd floor’s terrace with the view of the Dades Canyon very close by. We arrived restaurant around 2pm and there were not so many customers. The surrounding was quite and beautiful. I ordered chicken tajine and my cousin ordered pizza. We got free bread and olives. Both foods were tasty and the price was reasonable. The waiters were friendly. It seemed this restaurant could serve the alcoholic beverage, I saw people were drinking beers and wine from neighboring tables.

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.
