My partner and I visited Kasbah Igoudar January 2013. We wanted a few days away for my 58th birthday preferably where neither of us had been. Morocco fitted the bill just perfect. We then got an offer via Living Social for the Kasbah Igoudar. Looking at Tripadvisor it was a no brainer. It lived up to its billing in every way. Even the weather was gorgeous although the gang that worked there all wore coats when we were in shorts. Don't go expecting to loose weight the portions are large but the food is superb. Simple breakfasts and no menu makes an interesting change. Not knowing what you will be eating for lunch or dinner is a strange thing to get used too. If you want the hustle and bustle of Marrakech then this probably isn't the place for you as it is a 45 minute taxi ride there. This is the perfect place for relaxing. Having said that we did a bit of travelling. We did the ballooning trip (up at 04:30) to see the sunrise over the High Atlas mountains. What a fantastic experience. Plus the trip up the Ourika Valley. The driver couldn't have been more helpful although communication was mostly sign language he was on time every time we needed him. Great guy. All the staff where very helpful nothing was too much trouble for them. Having Happy Birthday sung to you by three Moroccan waiters while a huge sparkler fizzes in the cake they have prepared for me was a great surprise and is something I won't forget for a long time. This is a wonderful place to stay you really ought to check it out.
