This hotel was chosen for us by our tour guide as part of our excursion to Southern Morocco and the Sahara, as it was one of the hotels in the Dades Gorge that was popular with the tourists. I had read some bad reviews here so I was a bit concerned, but figured we were only there for 1 night so it was worth saving some money. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of the rooms and the bathroom. The room was very spacious, and it had air conditioning. It was clean and quiet at night. We visited in the summer, so I cannot comment about how the heating is in the winter. In our room rate we had included dinner and breakfast. Usually, hotel food is not the best, and usually catered to tourists, but this hotel had fairly authentic Moroccan dishes (probably the best crochettes we had in Morocco), and it was plentifull. Breakfast was also ok - typical with breads, pancakes, tea, coffee and fruit. The bathrooms were nice, and clean, but the only thing that was dissapointing after a long journey was barely any water pressure and no hot water. I think it had something to do with all the tourist coming at the same time and showering at the same time because the hot water returned later in the evening. Pressure however stayed the same. That would be my only complaint about this hotel. The back of the hotel rests right on the Gorge and it has beautiful views of the Valley and the river. They have no internet or phone available. The staff was nice. If this hotel is included in your tour, I wouldn't recommend against it - as it saved us some money, and to me it was probably close to the 'luxury' option that we passed up for the savings.
