Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in April and it truly is in an idyllic location in the mountains. I hired and drove a car from Marrakech and took the 3.5 hour journey out of the total chaos into the sublime.
The journey is crazy by UK standards and not for the faint hearted if you don't like heights or watching locals constantly over take on blind mountain bends or children as young as 4 standing on the roads trying to sell you herbs. It's like some sort of driving video game with a hazard every few minutes.
I guess people don't go to Morocco to drink much alcohol and at around the equivalent of a pint costing £10 at this hotel that's probably a good thing.
The evening meal was okay, limited menu really. Breakfast was very good. Massages okay but it really is all about the location and the view as you approach the lake from the mountains is breath taking.
Would I stay again, nope. Am I glad i visited, very much so.
Ps - drove to Ouzoud falls from the hotel and it takes about. 1.5 hours, very nice. Plus I then drove from Ouzoud to Rabat which supposedly takes 4 hours and it took 7..... Now that is a mountain drive, absolutely mental.
