Stayed here for one night as part of a trip from Marrakech to the desert, and almost wished we had more flexibility so we could just stay here longer and drink in the atmosphere - indeed, the other family staying at the same time said that was exactly what they were planning to do. By the time you get here from either direction, you will already have seen lots of ruined kasbahs along the side of the road, and as you pull in this one looks almost too new, too perfect, a little like the concrete wannabes being built in various places. But once you get inside, the authenticity of the renovation/rebuild becomes clear, and you really appreciate the construction of these things.
The rooms are not luxurious, but clean and perfectly serviceable, with balconies facing into the inner courtyard and small windows outwards giving a view of the surrounding palmeraie (which is well worth going for a walk in, though make sure to get your bearings first). As the hotel was reasonably empty and we had requested a twin room (which they don't have), they very generously upgraded us to two individual rooms, both of which were good.
The dinner was generally good, with a nice tagine, although in some ways it was possibly a little over-westernised (being offered beer and wine but told there is no orange juice or mint tea available feels kind of strange after other nights in Morocco), but that's a minor complaint. Generally speaking, this is an excellent place to stay if you are travelling along this road, either for a brief rest or a longer respite.
