It's really easy to criticise Ben Moro for not being the perfect hotel, but that's missing the point. How often do you get the opportunity to stay in a castle? There are dozens of auberges and hotels in Morocco that call themselves kasbahs - but Ben Moro really is.
That alone makes it worth a stay. The architecture is fascinating. The cooking is solid, alcohol is normally available and cheap, and it's impeccably clean. Disadvantages? The thick mud walls of the fortress block phone signal, the windows are small, there are steps and stairs everywhere, and hot water and AC can sometimes be erratic. It also doesn't have a pool, and wifi is only available around reception. Value is about average.
Best rooms are the three suites overlooking the first courtyard.
