“A real find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

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.

Highly recommended.

The reception is very friendly, the result is absolutely brilliant, with a roof terrace. The garden is very pleasant, with lots of nooks to sit and listen to the birds! The pool is nice and the hotel's location is ideal.
The restaurant is very good cook is typical, warm and very good. breakfasts are copieux.pas very far from the famous Kasbah of Ait Ben haddou.Je recomend this guesthouse for everyone.

Staying at the guest house has Defat kasbah ait ben hadou, The setting is beautiful, the rooms, rooms, suites, terraces, swimming pool are in a Moroccan style. The set is decorated with great taste in every detail. It's simply impeccable.
Plus, it's guests. are people who are extremely friendly, always very caring with you and ready to serve. These are mostly people of great heart, to share a moment is a true happiness.
In these circumstances it is impossible not to evacuate all of our European stress.
The only problem is that when you leave, In our case, we are ready to return as soon as we pourrons.I recommend this place to anyone looking for the true, the simple and natural

We stayed here 1 night before visiting Ait Benhadou. The hotel is on the road past the village next to a river. The hosts are very helpful and surroundings beautiful. Apparently, one can continue on the road past this hotel and connect to the road to Marrakech. It shows as unpaved on the map but it has been paved now according to the owner. It would save lots of kms.
