We spent four days at the Kasbah dar Ilham in February and it rained most of the time. It could have been a disastrous holiday but we enjoyed ourselves, and a large part of this was thanks to the excellent service and charm of the Kasbah. Delicious food, all freshly cooked and served by the charming Malika who has a degree in classical Arabic. They lit a fire in the sitting room where we lounged around on velvet cushions and it was all very warm and cosy. The owners' cat, the redoubtable Minouche, kept my children amused for hours.
You have to budget 200DH a day to get in and out of Marrakech, but I'd much rather do that than stay in a noisier, more cramped and probably more expensive hotel in the town centre. The taxi drivers were all very amenable and seemed to appear like magic to pick us up.
Hope to go back one day and find the sun shining!More
