“Tranquillity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The ideal location for rest and relaxation. We found this place by accident two weeks ago and the had most delicious dinner. We then re visited last weekend with our visitors and again had a lovely evening with a great nights sleep. Set in a beautiful location, great staff, comfy rooms...what more are you looking for?!

Hamid was so charming and looked after us so well. Quite the most pleasant hotel staff member we'd come across during our Moroccan travels. Our rooms were individual houses and very tastefully furnished. Interesting gardens all around. Lovely pool and patio areas. Very good food too.

Bouhcine(Proprietor), Hamid(Waiter) and Aziz(Chef) were friendly and welcoming.
The property, set in olive trees with the High Atlas Mountains as an impressive dackdrop, was attractive and peaceful.
The bungalow accommodation was simple but clean, although the design was somewhat disconcerting. The toilets in all the rooms we looked at were an integral part of the room with no floor to ceiling partition wall, no outside window and, in our cases, with a louvre door or, in other cases we witnessed, no door at all. Consequently there was no independent supply of fresh air, no soundproofing and little or no privacy.
We had no complaint with the quality of the meals but for the first 3 of our 4 night stay the quantity served for two persons was only sufficient for one. Together with other clients we eventually complained to the Proprietor and on the last night there was a considerable improvement in the size of the portions served. I suppose it could be argued that we should have complained earlier but we were under the impression it was only us who felt the portions were inadequate, it was only when we realised that we were not alone in this opinion that we collectively took action. In any case, in my opinion one should not need to point out something that was patently obvious.
I requested a discount on the price but it was explained to me that by us booking direct we had already saved on the price compared to what we would have been charged had we made the reservation via an Internet Agency.
I paid the bill by Visa and was advised that this attracted a 5% surcharge. I said there was no mention of this on the Hotel Website and declined to pay the extra.

Nice property lost in the olive trees with an amazing landscape.
Had lunch there, very friendly staff with good service. Good food!
Lovely bedrooms in a traditional style (like small bungalows)

We headed straight to the mountains at the beginning of our trip to morocco and are glad we did.
Lovely rooms placed around an old olive farm.
Enjoyable food, very well presented, though no choice (no menu).
Not much to do around, but very pleasant to sit by the pool and relax.

We stayed at Sel d'Ailleurs for three nights in late June 2011. It was a pleasant escape from the heat and hustle and bustle of Marrakech and was the perfect end to our holiday. The room was very nice and traditionally decorated. With dinner included in the price, it was also excellent value.

The food was very good and we were thoroughly spoilt whilst we were there. On the Friday we were even invited to share in a free lunch with the rest of the staff.

During our stay we were the only guests in the hotel, which was perfect for the relaxing get away we were after. Literally the only activities to do are reading around the pool, and going for walks in the countryside (though it was too hot - over 40 degrees - to do any serious hiking at that time).

The service was exceptional and we can't recommend Sel d'Ailleurs enough. We were made to feel right at home and as though nothing was too much trouble. Even the pet dog was more than welcoming and treated us as old friends. As well as the accommodation, we'd also recommend booking transfers to and from Marrakech with Sel d'Ailleurs. They were much cheaper than trying to find a taxi ourselves.

This is a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. We couldn't fault anything with our stay here. The staff were extremely welcoming and were there to serve day & night. The rooms were tradtionally decorated and very comfortable. The food was delicious, but we found drinks a little expensive than we'd anticipated (similar to home). This is the perfect place to go for some sought after R&R. We went with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed lazing by the pool, reading, chatting & just have some well deserved peace & quiet.
This is definitely a place I'd recommend for adults or those with grown up children. The grounds were made with uneven pebbles and the pool didn't have a shallow end suitable for small children.
Overall we had a wonderful few days and will most definitely go back again soon.

Room Tip: Only an hour & a bit from Marrakech airport
