“Excelent Stay in an Excelent Hotel.”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We stayed in August of 2010, and we was very surprised about this hotel. The views are simply expectacular, and the zone is very beautiful. We stayed only two nights, because we was on route. We recieve an upgrade to the suite, because we contract all the route with Xaluca Tours. We have a three balconies in the room, and in one of them a hot tub with great views to the Dades Valley. The swimming pool have also a hot tub area, the normal swimming pool is so so cold!
Breakfast and dinner were correct.

The best thing about Hotel Xaluca, in my opinion, is the view from the pool area and the pool itself. This was all very refreshing during a long trip to the desert. I loved the decor of the hotel but the rooms could have been a bit more comfortable. The sheets on my bed were worn and rough. The food was just ok...we ordered lunch upon arrival...was definitely not the best. There was a buffet dinner and breakfast that were both just ok. Overall it was a nice stay.

After having stayed mainly in riads and guesthouses for over a week, Xaluca was a nice change. The decor is fantastic and it was wonderful having a pool and spa in the hot summer weather. I would have loved to stay another night or two, but we were on a tour, so had to move on after two nights. For the most part I loved it, but there were a few little things. In the bar, I ordered the "Xaluca" special cocktail. It was more like Orange Juice...could not taste ANY alcohol whatsoever and the ingredients on the menu list were different to what was actually in it (no Blue Curacao, even though it said it was there on the menu). After that very expensive OJ I switched to beer and/or wine. The bar staff were also severely lacking in the Customer Service department...not very friendly or helpful. The other thing was the Hammam never seemed to be open whenever I went past. I wanted to check it out and see whether to have a treatment, but it was never open. Maybe you have to book in before they open, but I never saw it in the end.

I didn't opt for the dinner buffets that were offered, but if you were a big eater it would have probably been good value. The breakfast buffet was good, but the breads looked better than they tasted...a bit bland and sometimes stale.

Overall, even with the little things that I wasn't that impressed with, this was still one of my favourites. It just had a good feel to it, but more so the second day we were there and there weren't as many people in the pool area. 10/10 on the decor though...loved it!

We stayed at Xaluca after leaving the desert. The hotel itself is very pretty and the rooms are modern. The pool area is very nice, there was WIFI throughout the hotel, good AC and good water pressure. The buffet meal was okay and the breakfast was pretty good. Our only complaint would be the bar. We went as soon as we got there to get a drink- the prices were ridiculous- my friend ordered a gin and tonic and they charged her separately for the tonic. Also, the drinks were very poorly made and barely contained any alcohol. We had two drinks at the bar before we ordered a bottle of wine from the restaurant (around 12$) and drank that the rest of the night. Perhaps the best part of this hotel was the Spa. My friend and I both had a traditional hammam and massage as well. The ladies did an excellent job and made us feel very comfortable. It was a great experience after spending two days in the desert.

Very nice decor, location and comfortable rooms. Buffet meal was ok for what it was. Pool looked very nice and refreshing but we arrived too late to enjoy. A good option for those passing through on way to desert.

After enclosed rhiads, this was spacious with wonderful views over the valley. With a rooftop pool, bar and restaurant this is the perfect spot to soak up your experiences. Our bed was larger than King size. The room was in rustic African style with a balcony. Interesting decor everywhere, even archaelogical finds under a glass/plastic part of a corridor floor. Would have liked to stay more than one night.

Room Tip: We had room 214 but they are probably all similar.

We had a Junior Suite which actually had 3 different balconies, 2 of which overlooked the oasis and mountains. The room was well furnished and the outdoor spa good. The food was poor compared to the Xaluca in Erfoud, with the buffet being extremely limited.
However, the hotel itself is very good.
