Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 12, 2012

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Taos. If you are looking to visit Marrakesh but prefer to come and go rather than spend your entire time in the city then this is the perfect place for you.

We were able to enjoy and visit all the sites of Marrakesh (only 15-20 minutes and a 10-12 Euro taxi ride away) and return to this oasis at the end of it all. It really provided an excellent opportunity to relax and unwind just on the outskirts of a truly exotic city!

To start off- the food at Casa Taos is incredible! The owners ,Hicham and Karima, are real believers of the farm to table philosophy which is reflected in every meal. A great deal of the fruits and vegetables served are from their own garden and anything else comes from local producers and suppliers. You’re served freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice at breakfast with homemade jams, eggs, freshly baked breads and I mustn’t forget olive tapenade. Dinner was a real culinary treat each night and the desserts were out of this world. As this is not a big hotel you have the opportunity to dine and interact with other guests if you wish or just to be on your own.

We had the Ousmane Sow room which was spacious and tastefully decorated with traditional Moroccan details. The main house also had a salon which is great for after dinner drinks, afternoon tea or just relaxing on the sofa. I especially loved the décor and the colors used throughout.

The property itself is very beautiful as it is full of orange, lemon and grapefruit trees; a few hammocks and, of course, a beautiful pool to lounge around.

Best of all the owners of Casa Taos and the staff members are so helpful and clearly have a passion for what they do. We will be back!

I'm not sure how to phrase this without sounding gushing but this hotel is absolutely wonderful. Stayed in February with my mother, husband and toddler and it made everyone blissfully happy. Laid back elegance, incredible food, wonderfully warm staff... It's the most wonderful hotel I've ever stayed in. I'd go on my own, for a romantic break, a trip with girlfriends or, as we did, a family holiday. Swing in the hammock, pick mandarins from the orchard, watch rose petals drift across the ornamental pool in the courtyard... There's always great company if you want it or restful solitude to be found elsewhere. I'd live here if I could. And will come back as soon as I can.

We (two adults and a 2½ years old child) stayed 5 nights here and had the most wonderfull time. The food (both dinner and breakfast) is fantastic - all home made and fresh from the garden. It was the best we had in Morroco. The room was great (with A/C which could heat it up if needed). The staff is friendly and helpful.
Transport to Marrakech is about half an hour, taxi is easily arranged with the people at Casa Taos, it costs around 120 dhs each way (around 11 euros).
For us as a family with a child this was the perfect base camp for exploring Marrakech. It offered relaxation, peace, and good food.
A place we would not hesitate to return to.

We spent four nights here, on a much needed break. We wish we could have stayed longer. One feels privileged staying at Casa Taos - not only because of the gorgeous setting and gardens, the orange and mandarin trees; the wonderful, home-made, healthful and abundant food, cooked with passion, expertise and a subtle hand, those heavenly breakfasts and sublime dinners, made with ingredients that come direct from the garden and orchard; the peace so welcome after a day in hectic Marrakesh; the beautiful, large rooms and bathrooms, the choices of materials and colours; the perfectly thought-out and impeccably, discretely executed service. But also because this is the hosts' actual family home, where they receive everyone with the utmost generosity, elegance, and warmth; and by the time we left we felt more like house-guests and old friends than like passing tourists. We can't think of a better way to enjoy and get to know this part of Morocco.

We stayed in Ousman suite, upstairs and with a view of the snow capped mountains. Lovely suite, original decoration, full size TV screen, comfortable bed and wood fire had we wanted it; only complaint is just a trickle of water in the shower. The staff are all lovely. The owner was away during our stay but the girl who did the cooking certainly knew her stuff. We were there early January, no other guests and in full season for fresh fruit and delicious juices. Breakfast is very good; they tend to overfeed you at dinner and it's hard to say no. Getting to town and back is simple as they have a preferred taxi service who drop you off in the centre and, when you ring, pick you up from the same spot. About 10 euros each way and totally hassle free. We were glad to get away from the bustle and dust of Marrakech mid afternoon and return to the tranquility of the pool and ornage orchard which surrouinds the house. Would definitely return.
To get here by car leave the Agadir-Casablanca motorway at the Marrakech Targa exit (if coming from Casa take the motorway towards Agadir to get to this exit), drive towards Marrakech, 16 km after the motorway toll there is a roundabout. Take the first left about 500 metres after the roundabout and you arrive direct at Casa Taos.

I spent a week in Casa Taos with my family in October, in Botero Suite. The decor of the suite (and all the public spaces) was really beautiful, even more beautiful than in photos. Fresh flowers, great attention to detail. Very nice and romantic. As everyone has stated, the food is superb. We ate at the hotel at three nights, and also had lunches there. The lunch that was available was light "tapas" style lunch. The dinners were traditional Maroccoan food. There is a communal dining area at the hotel, where quests can sit around big tables together. The soul of the place, Mohammed, suggested us on dining on quiet yard in front of our room, so that our son can sleep on a couch near us, so we had the intimate dinners apart from the other guests. The atmosphere all together is very intimate, Casa Taos is more of a luxurious B&B than hotel. The owners are present, their kids with their friends play around, there is no lobby; when you need something you go to kitchen and ask etc. The place is very informal, if you love traditional grand hotels, this may not be a place for you. I found this place really really nice, no wonder it has such exceptionally good reviews. And it is surprising it is not reviewed in books and listed on different sites. A gem, go before more people find it.....

Room Tip: Botero and Matisse suits are both really beautiful, I would choose suite over normal room.
