We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Douar Samra after a 4 day trek in the Atlas Mountains. From the moment we arrived it was total relaxation with mint tea served in the cosy dining room. We were then shown our room (Sbat) which was gorgeous, very traditionally decorated and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! We...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017

We stayed as a couple at this amazing little hotel on a 4 night mini-break between Christmas and New Year. With a short haul flight from the UK and just over an hour's drive from Marrakech, you are transported into a very different world from the one you left. The hotel is in a Kasbah style property in a very...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. It was a perfect get-away from the madness of Marrakech and I am already looking forward to visiting again. It is not a usual "hotel" but this only adds to the charm. It has wonderful rooms (we were lucky enough to have electricity in the Treehouse!), a stunning view, great food...

Stayed here for one night with my family and it was a very memorable experience with dinner by candle-light only and excellent food and wine sitting on the floor with comfortable cushions and spacious decks for enjoying the night-time sky or listening to the call for prayers echoing in the mountains. We dont typically go back to places but this...

Of all of the places that we stayed in during our trip to Morroco, this was our favorite. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the communal meals. Our room was simple, yet quite comfortable and the various places to sit and enjoy the birds singing and to watch the mountain tops reveal themselves in...

We had a wonderful stay at Douar Samra. The guesthouse is a hidden gem of the village. The location is top notch with wonderful 360 degrees view over the valley and the mountains. Let's not forget the stars at night. Best enjoyed by 5 min walk from the house. The house has many terraces to relax or to enjoy the...

Swiss Jacqueline has worked with locals over many many years - her guest house is authentic and charming, extremely comfortable without glitz or chintz. The communal evening dinner meal at 7pm was a highlight for us - fantastic food ( you eat what is served, they accommodate dietary requirements as best they can. We had lentil Dahl type dish, a...

A stones throw from Marrakech and your're surrounded by the awe inspiring peaks of the High Atlas mountains. Loved the walks and mesmerising views. Dour Samra topped off a perfect stay in the mountains. Very attentive staff, lovely food and plenty of it, awesome rooms with fires and water bottles all thrown in. Highly recommended
