Ait Ben Moro is a step back in time, an austere but lovely place run by very kind people who bend over backwards to make sure guests are comfortable. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble; we were served a delicious dinner in front of a roaring fire, and returned to our room (the Dades Suite mentioned by other reviewers,) to find the staff had lit a fire for us there, too. The next morning, we were struck by the integrity of the restoration of this ancient building, and by the beauty of its gardens and views over the Skouras Palmerie. Definitely a highlight of our Moroccan experience.

There is no way to describe the atmosphere at Kasbah Ait Ben Moro. Others have commented on the wonderful restoration of this spectacular castle, but I just wanted to add that it really is an amazing experience to stay here. Not only is it beautiful, but the staff (especially Aziz!!) are extremely kind, friendly, welcoming, and helpful. And the food is delicious. I loved my one night there that I returned a few days later with my mother, who agreed that it's an incredible place to stay. Don't forget to catch the sunset and sunrise on the rooftop terrace overlooking the palmeraie and the High Atlas!

Room Tip: My first night I was upgraded to a suite on the topmost floor but one -- I think it was the Dades room. Nothing could have been more beautiful -- bedroom in the corner with windows overlooking the mountains, and two separate lounges with lovely rugs and pillows. But my second room, which was on the first floor, was also extremely pretty and comfortable. The old website (soon to be updated, I understand) includes pictures that make the rooms look rather austere and even monastic -- don't believe it. The decor is graceful and understated but also inviting. All the bathrooms are quite modern.

Beautifully restored Kasbah in great surrounding. Nice rooms, beautiful garden and common areas (especially the lounges with fireplace where you can have dinner). Very helpful staff, reasonable prices = excellent value for money !
Highly recommended

Ait ben Moro, unlike other hotels in Morocco, was restored so that travellers enjoy a comfortable stay even throughout winter.We were delighted that the airconditioning was working properly, we had hot water and that the suite we chose had a living room with a fire place-where they actually lighted a fire for us.
dinner and breakfast were excellent as was the approach of the staff: very friendly and warm and very interested in making your stay as pleasant as possible. The owner himself showed great interest in our comfort state.
highly reccomendable! go for the dades suite while you're at it!

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.
