“Our nicest stay in Morocco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We happened to find this beautifully built kasbah by chance, when we passed with our rental car and followed a sign on the street. Of all the accommodations in Morocco we've seen till now, this one was certainly one of the most beautiful and welcoming. The hospitable owner told us proudly that he'd opened about one year ago, after more than 5 years of constructing the kasbah in traditional style.

From the rooftop we had a fantastic view during sunset. The interior is nicely decorated with many beautiful details (without being too kitsch). The food tasted delicious, as everywhere in Morocco. And the service was very welcoming and friendly. Last but not least, we were happy to have an airco (which served as a heating) and wifi (not always working inside the room but everywhere else it was of good quality). Only small point of complaint was the hard blanket, with which I scratched my knees. So all in all, I'd certainly recommend this hotel/kasbah.

We were here only a night, in December, just after Christmas. It was an amazing place to stay, the room were warm, the conditioner worked fine and the wifi was good both in the room and in the restaurant. I definitely recommend this place. Everyone was so nice to us, both during the diner / which was really good , and a huge bread we could not finish / and during the breakfast with an amazing pressed orange juice (not a bought one from the market) .
For the day after they recommended us the near kasbah which we visited, it would have been a mistake to miss it!

recommend absolutely.

oh and the sunset from the roof is breathetaking !

We had a wonderful night’s stay at the Ait Ben Hada in October. It’s situated on a little hill just off the main highway, a kilometer or two west of the center of Skoura, and the rooftop offers wonderful views of the surrounding palmery and mountains. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean, and the spacious bathrooms had showers with reliably hot water, which we discovered was something of a rarity in Morocco, at least in the mid-range places. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, and the dinner was one of the best we had in any of the hotels and guesthouses we stayed in. To top it all off, when I forgot my iPod touch on a bench outside the hotel, they worked with a hotel we stayed at in Merzouga (the Kanz Erremal, also a great place to stay) to have it sent to me at no charge. Highly recommended!

We were driving toward Skoura in the dark and just looking for the first place to stay, and we pulled into this incredible mansion-style riad off the main road, overlooking a small village and an incredible desert landscape around.
The auberge has one kasbah-style building with various large rooms, each with a spotless private bathroom (normal toilet, nice hot shower that just takes about 5-10 minutes to warm up but is then really hot) and beautiful decor, extra cozy blankets, AC/heater, etc.
The building is actually brand new, and adjacent is the restaurant, kitchen, which is more glamorous than we were looking for with white table cloths. We had a delicious couscous soup for dinner, the best I had in all of Morocco, very hearty and homemade - and in the morning were served fresh squeezed OJ, coffee and milk, and an enormous pizza-size serving of traditional Moroccan breakfast bread with jam and butter. Delicious breakfast to start off our day!
The hotel is also very affordable, $50-$70 bucks per night I believe, can't remember the conversion. Anyway, it's good for a luxurious experience near Skoura and the management was extremely friendly and accodomating - one of the workers joined us over complimentary mint tea before dinner, and he told us the story of building the traditional-style mud&straw walls of the restaurant by hand. He spoke a little English, Spanish, Italian, and French - some of the other management only speaks French and Arabic. The owner spent some time in French and came back with the dream of creating this luxury riad-restaurant, and he has done an excellent job down to the most beautiful details in the restaurant decor (and traditional green glazed pottery as dishes, etc).
Great stay here and highly recommended!
