We paid 400dhs for a spacious double room with a/c, shower etc. Dinner was served in a large communal dining room along with a very nice bottle of Moroccan wine called Ksar (140dhs). The highlight of the stay was the after-dinner musical performance of traditional Berbere music. Leaving the hotel from the bottom of the garden one can explore the banks of the river. It is in a quiet location with pleasant views.
Coming from Ourazate, this hotel situated close to the river 5km after Ait Ben Haddou. The road in from Ourazate is good. Going out the other way towards Telouet is a spectacular drive for which most of the road is in good condition. There is an 11km stretch before Telouet that was a little uncomfortable in the small hire car but worth the bumps.
Our hosts spoke perfect French, good English and very enthusiastic German.
