This place is great for a quiet retreat in the mountains - wonderful pool and even a hammam. I had a stomach bug and the owner looked after me so well. My friends went on a fantastic trek in the surrounding mountains which they said was well worth it!

Nce and beautiful Hotel with top panorama view. Good breakfast and dinner. Staff is also nice and friendly. Hotel is also serving beer and wine. Small rooms in oriental style. Aircon was not working. Difficult to get through rocky road.

This was our final night of a fabulous tour with Untravelled Paths, their Sahara Desert Experience. I have to say that all accommodations were very carefully selected, meeting, and indeed exceeding our expectations. We were delighted with their choices, all offering authentic Moroccan experiences and that was what we had hoped for. Our welcome at I Rocha was warm and... More

I'm absolutely baffled at the (admittedly very rare) negative reviews here. Like most other visitors, I find Irocha a haven of peace and tranquility. I don't know how many nights I've stayed here in total, but I know it's a lot more than I originally planned. In truth, I'm finding it hard to leave! Ahmed (who grew up in this... More

Irocha is a beautiful and tranquil place for anybody interested in a quiet place after experiencing busy cities of morocco. The rooms, pool, or terrasse are extremely well kept and clean. Also breakfast was pretty standard moroccan, in a good way. Beware, there is a pretty steep and rocky road from the main road to the hotel. We would give... More

We stopped at Irocha, as many do travelling from the Sahara to Marrakech. For one night. And it was a beautiful location to spend the evening. Perched on the side of a beautiful valley with greenery running along the valley floor alongside the road. Irocha itself is small, and as is traditional in Morocco, set around an internal courtyard that... More

We stopped at Irocha on the way back to Marrakech for just one night unfortunately, but this was enough to gather the special energy that this place emanates.
