We spent 12 days with Houssain and his family both at the Gite Atlas Mazik and on a custom tour of the High Atlas.

As hosts they could not be more accommodating; welcoming a mixed group of 14 people to Imlil and introducing us to the Berber villages and way of life.

We took in lessons in Arabic, Berber and French at no charge, were treated to Berber music in the evening and even witnessed the ritual slaughter and preparation of a goat for eating.

All food provided was excellent and authentic, from Tagine and Cous Cous to Berber eggs and doughnuts along with fresh fruit and vegetables every day.

During our trek all accommodation and feeding was provided and bottled water and soft drinks were always made available. They took care of all organisation of chefs, mules and mule-drivers, provided tents and mattresses and a communal feeding tent. They were flexible throughout to meet our needs even though we made a number of short notice changes and they even arranged to collect and return us from Marrakech in an air conditioned minibus.

Excellent service at a great price. Do not overlook them or be fooled by more expensive places in Imlil, wholly recommended for any groups or individuals who wish to visit the High Atlas Mountains or climb Jbel Toubkal!

This place is small quaint and if your after piece and quiet it's the place for you!!! There is plenty of adventure though if you want it, my friend did the summit walk with the owner as his guide and another small group....he could not speak highly enough him ....right here are the pros and cons..
Pros....
Quiet with stunning views across the mountains
Owners are absolute stars, can not help you enough, nothing is to much trouble
Quaint and small but clean and very functional
Food is fab...authentic Berber food
Village 15 mins walk away with alsorts of activities available from trekking to kayaking
Plenty of little shops and cafes in village
Free wi-fi
Cons...
The gite is new so slightly unfinished, but in saying that, it is nothing that will hinder your stay
Expect the odd power cut, and phone signal can be a little off and on
If you have mobility issues the gite is not for you, it's a 15-20 min up hill walk, and because the altitude is higher it could be a problem for some, and there are some steep stairs up to gite

Right in saying all I have, I would still highly recommend the gite, I will be going back myself so that speaks volumes, thank you to the owners who well and truly made us feel at home, x

We stayed at Gite Atlas Mazik for 4 days and we loved it! We dont usually leave reviews but felt the need to for this place because we were so pleased. Everyone was SUPER friendly and did everything they could to make us feel welcome. They didnt pressure us to go on any tours either which was nice. Also, the food was amazing. And the views were spectacular. The place can get a little cold at night so bring warm clothes, other than that it is wonderful! You will not find a better place to stay or friendlier hosts. We will certainly be returning to climb Toubkal!

Very beautifull vievs from terrace, you can eat traditional maroccan eating,
rooms clean, calm, and in good style,
close to road on jebel toubkal, you can get from host a lot of information about mountains.
Ideal place for rest after trekking, i miss to Imlil;)

Room Tip: upstairs close to the terrace

My friend and I stayed two nights here, and it was divine... very peaceful! We spent many hours on the terrace overlooking the mountains & community gardens, watching the sunset... Woke up to the birds & fresh bread, olives, eggs & sweet tea for breakfast.
Hussein, his father and his younger brother were very friendly and helpful. The kids running around are gorgeous.

We were able to leave our baggage at the gite overnight when we hiked up to the summit of Jebel Toubkal (for me, this meant leaving a laptop!) and everything was very safe. Wonderfully hot shower, big tasty tajine & fruit for when you get back down the mountain!
