It's not everyday you get to stay in a giant sandcastle on the edge of a massive desert oasis.
Although it's been around for ages, the family who runs Kasbah Ait Ben Moro has never actually owned it. Moroccan property law is a complicated affair, with the selling of deeds requiring all living members of a family to acquiesce to be legally binding. As a result, many establishments are leased by those who run them, although it's ownership in practice. Needless to say, I spent a bit too much time chatting with and about the owners and their Kasbah!
The food, service and atmosphere are all wonderful. If you're staying in the rear of the Kasbah on the upper levels, you'll have magnificent views of the Skoura Oasis. Sunrise in particular was stunning.
Free wireless Internet is available, although it wasn't quite strong enough to reach the upper levels. From the main lobby, restaurant and outside areas though you should have no trouble accessing it.More
