“A nice resort (for Morocco)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2007

This place is a perfectly nice resort near the desert in Morocco. It was a great place to spend a few days recharging on our two week trip, but I wouldn't go to Morocco just to see it.

The hotel has all kinds of amenities, the room and pool are nice and the food is pretty good (not great, but a VERY welcome bit of culinary diversity in the land o' Tagines!). There's a good bar with good service and a staff that can help you arrange for sightseeing trips (like camel rides into the desert or 4x4 driving).

If you are doing a road trip trek around Morocco, I recommend a few days R&R at this resort.

A couple of notes on seasons. We visited in January (it was COLD) and we were literally the only people in the whole hotel of over a hundred rooms. The place was open and we got served, but it was like a ghost town with regard to other guests (again, though, the staff was present and the place was fully functional). I am guessing that the place is pretty happening in the summer, when the pool and rooftops would be a great hangout for sun lovers, and probably quite the minor league party scene....Consider when you are going and the weather, because it will impact the ambiance and your experience, I would guess.

  • Liked — Great place to chill

With our tour we came to hotel Xalucca. A very luxurous complex, built as a Kasba, with a large pool next to the diningrooms, and buildings with the rooms around large patio's. The rooms are in desert-style, with special decorations, very original and colourful..
Everything was clean, the water in the shower hot . The whole place invited to stay and relax. Unfortunately we left next day.Iwould recommend to take a few days here and to do some tours into the desert from here. We also took jeeps to Merzouga, but then went on.
The food was great too.
Definitly the greatest place of our trip.

A really relaxing hotel. Our room was large and comfortable boutique style, the food was good and the staff and ambience friendly.
This is a base for 'Sahara experiences', climbing the sand-dunes on foot or on a camel to see the sunset, having 4x4 drives across the rutted tracks of the desert and maybe staying in a bedouin tent for a night. We did some of these things, but wished we had booked for longer to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

  • Liked — the room and pool area
  • Disliked — no bath, only shower
  • Tips/Secrets — don't go on the 4x4 trip with a bad back!
