A delightful blend of luxury and informality. Breathtaking location, no shortage of cozy corners and terraces to relax in peace or admire the awesome views. Excellent pool (sunbeds with hats!) and beautifully tended gardens. Staff especially friendly and helpful. Rooms stylish and individual. Fabulous breakfast buffet. Shop a tad overpriced.

This was my favourite hotel of all the places I stayed on my recent tour of Morocco. Small and quaint, yet a little modern and hip in an old world location. Super helpful staff and the spa was lovely and very accommodating. Excellent food for dinner and breakfast, all fresh and homemade.

In its hey say Im sure this Ksar was lovely, but we found it lacking in character, there were very few guests, the gardens were not set out for sitting, there was just no life in the place. We had lunch there which took nearly 45 minutes to serve us, abd there were about 20 flies buzzing around us in... More

We arrived late after a long day travelling to find an exotic hotel tucked in behind the dusty streets of Ait Ben Haddou. We received a very warm welcome at reception and were then escorted to our rustic, picturesque rooms with magnificent views over the desert mountain range. Our waitress did not speak English but this did not prove to... More

On the edge of the desert , Hotel RIAD KSAR IGHNDA opens its doors for you onto the Atlas Mountains. I stopped here to have lunch after visiting the UNESCO listed site of Aït Benhaddou nearby.

Great place to stay while visiting the desert region of Morocco. The food wasn't very good but the room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The wifi was decent, though not amazing. The grounds are very pretty though! Overall, nice place to stay when passing through!

This riad has a beautifully appointed courtyard with pool and well done landscaping. It is most relaxing to sit by the pool. Our room was adequate, however, we did have a bit of a problem with the drainage of the shower - it would overflow into our room. The towels absorbed it but they really should do something about this... More

This was very weird. The resort is gorgeous, but our room had some issues. We had ants coming thru the only window that we could open. The bathroom was tiny and had a strange shower that had a very high floor pan. This is a recipe for disaster! But the bed was wonderful, best night of sleep I had experienced... More

I stayed here in May 2016 with a group of 13 other people. I found Ksar Ighnanda beautiful but lacking in charm or authenticity. The grounds and our room were well maintained. However, our double room was so small we had to move the furniture around in order not to trip over our suitcases. The dinner buffet seemed uninspired, although... More
