“My stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

When you stay at the Roches Armed you will find friendly and kind hearted staff, with a goal of making your stay as pleasent as possible. The hotel is located in the highest village on the atlas Mountains with amazing surroundings and views. My guide Rachid always seemed to be there day or night, to translate, teach me about the culture or take me through the mountains.
I would say if you are in Morocco the Atlas mountains are a must see, and the best part about staying at this hotel is the authentic experience you get.

warm hospitality and tasty food with friendly service makes this a lovely retreat in the mountains; accepting of young children: there is even wifi on the front steps and great views from the roof deck

When you reach Imlil from Marrakech, don't stop! Ignore the hustle, bustle and those trying to offer you excursions up and around Mount Toubkal. Keep walking a further 2-3km further, up past the waterfall to the quiet little village of Armound. At the very top of the peaceful spot offering fantastic 360 degree views and a breeze that cuts through the heat is Les Rochas Armed guest house. Here you will find a guest house loaded with charm and character. Clean pleasant rooms, hot showers and home cooking that's tasty and hearty to the extent it's guaranteed to make you pack on the pounds no matter how much hiking you decide to do. The staff are top drawer and happy to help with organising treks and guides if you need one, for more reasonable rates than you will be offered in Imlil. The only thing I found missing here was people, apart from the staff and a handful of other hikers. Great for me, but it would be better still for this top establishment if they had a few more. Happy trails!

I stayed here on a 2 week tour of Morocco. Roches Aremd was one of the highlights! The views, the food, the hospitality were outstanding! Perfect place to stay if you are visiting the Atlas Mountains.

Fabulous view, lovely food and a very friendly host. Everything locally grown and delicious it was too. Best to enjoy following a guided walk through the Atlas Mountains. We were spoilt! The chef / owner is a great host and even tried to teach us all a few Arabic words!

Decent place on top of the village that provides everything you need plus absolutely breathtaking 360° views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The food is homemade and delicious. Overall a simple but amazing place!

So worth the 60-minute hike up the mountain on the unmarked, slightly treacherous foot path! The location – perfection. Beautiful mountain views, situated in the lovely little town of Armed. The staff - very attentive and helpful. The food was the amazing and the breakfast at roches armed was the best spread I had in Morocco! The bedrooms are minimal – just mattresses on the floor, which I found very cozy. My only issue was the bathroom. There is one room with 2 toilet stalls, a shower stall and a sink, but there is no door to the larger room. It’s just kinda open to the rest of the house, so there is almost no privacy and…smells and sounds can be experienced from the next room where we ate and hung out. To their credit, the staff did offer up a shower in the basement, which was much larger and totally private, so make sure to ask for it.
