“Very hospitable”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Skoura is quiet but Chez Laila is well signposted. We were a little disappointed to find the pool and front path were being repaired. So as we were only staying for one night our visions of lying by the pool were quashed. However, the house is delightful and spacious and there is a lovely first floor terrace with views over the palmerie and mountains and once we had mint tea and cakes up there we were very happy. Dinner and breakfast were very good and the staff were attentive and polite. Hostess Laila was charming and we would come back again without question but we might check beforehand if the pool was working.

We stayed here for 3 nights and initially were concerned there wasn't enough to do in Skoura. However we had a great three days with a mixture of relaxation and adventure.

On arrival it wasn't quite as we had imagined as the pool was being filled up and we had the feeling it was the start of the season and our French isn't great so it was a bit tricky to start with. However, chez Laila's charms quickly grew on us as we relaxed with our mint tea and homemade biscuits.

The room was lovely even though it wasn't huge and the house is very old and traditionally built. There is a roof terrace that we went up to for stunning views. The only fault with the food is the size! Very generous portions, but this wasn't really a problem as it was all delicious - the best food we had on our whole trip.

The staff were very helpful and organised trips and accompanied us on some too. One to the valley of the roses (beautiful even if out of season) and also a long bike ride exploring the palmerie on the way to a camel ride. When i mentioned wanting a tagine we went to visit the local pottery where they made them. A nice little extra, with a bargain £4 tagine!

There aren't really other restaurants to go to in Skoura (without a car) so we ate here three nights and it would have been better to have a car to give us a bit more freedom.

The only downside was not knowing how much the bikes cost to hire before we got the bill (not that they were expensive - and we didn't ask) and on the end of our bike trip being taken round many local businesses in case we wanted to buy something when we just wanted to put our feet up! However, it's a small community so tourism is an important income in this area.

I'd recommend Chez Laila to anyone wanting to relax in a friendly, family run B&B with delicious food and beautiful surroundings. Thanks Laila!

We spent one night at this cozy place in December. The bedroom was large with one queen size bed and three single beds with separate shower and bathroom. The dining room doubled as a very comfortable living/guest area with a crackling fireplace. Food was good and plentiful. Laila was a great hostess making sure we were happy with the accommodations. When our A/C/heater failed, Laila called the electrician and gave us additional electric heaters for the night. Thank you Laila for a great stay!

It was our first time in Skoura. Chez Laila was a good choice. The atmosphere and food were excellent. Laila is a wonderful host and we can't wait to return again. The market at Skoura on Mondays is well worth a visit and the Palmeraie is magical. Chez Laila has quad bikes and cycles to hire as well as a pool so one could definitely spend a few days there. Highly recommended and very good value.

WOW!!! Chez Laila is located in the Palmeraie of Skoura. Beautiful and quiet. We felt extremely welcome and very relaxed. We came from the touristic Marrakesh and were on our way to the desert (Merzouga). Finally we could breath and feel like princesses... Nice rooms, GREAT food and perfect hospitallity. She called her friends in Merzouga and arranged three nights in the desert for us at a perfect place (Riad Mamouche). She even called us the same night to see if we made it safelly. Thanks Laila! :)
