The uncertainty of getting to the Kasbah was daunting at first, using the internet to translate English to French (as its the second language of Morocco) and then doing the same with replies. I managed to co-ordinate with the hotel my taxi / collection and drop off from the airport at a cost of 100 Dirhams - approximately £10.
The hotel was fantastically located to sample some othe Real Morocco. A mud flat village, made with straw etc, filled with chickens, running children, donkeys, dogs and quite good fun to get to. Down a dirt track, full bumps along the way, makes it all more enjoyable. Upon arrival a porter visited to collect my bag and show me to reception where I was shown to the Bar, Terrace and then given a complimentary Cocktail. Called the Kasbah. Fantastic as I sat to watch the Quad bikes come in, a donkey going down the river and the sight of further quads in the Palmerie.
Finally getting to the room, getting a little confused with the labyrinth of stair ways, flowing fountains the room was of Patio View, called KouKouYou. WIth a large wooden (secure) door, safe, drapes surrounding the bed. The room was fantastic, left to my own accord to find my way around. Hunting the pool, the grounds and the sun terrace in which I sat to read a book. Surrounded by birds, the call from the village mosque. The tranquil atmostphere really did set off the stay for some serious relaxation.
The Menu du Jour is a set menu at a cost of 180 Dirhams, with service with a smile. The final night this also included some live North African Music and Belly Dancing.
The hotel were courteous, a little hard of talking English although you can get by, a shuttle into Marrakech City twice every day, although they can organise taxi's otherwise at a rate of 100 Dirhams, (an extra 50 between 5pm and 9am), is great for a day out of exploring and even a night in Gjeema El Fna square with the fantastic food markets at night.
Although out of the way, this place is perfect to unwind, cut yourself off. Sure theres no TV in the room, but you dont go on holiday to keep an eye on the news, nor to watch English TV. Enjoyed it so much, that I am looking to return in May or June.
