Dar Mouna
Ranked #13 of 30 Ait Ben Haddou B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Beyond the amazing view on the Kasbah across the river, the great dry, unpolluted climate and the absence of stress, Dar Mouna is a sanctuary for the soul. Built on a pool of positive energy, the house is a junction of time, where immemorial authenticity blends magically with 21st century comfort.

The staff is highly professional, yet infinitely kind and caring. They will make your stay a homely relaxing one. From the outstanding fine cuisine, to the family memorabilia left around, the nearby garden and animal farm from which they get their produce, the swimming pool and all the numerous little corners where to enjoy the absence of time, everything is done to keep you at peace and happy.

If you stay long enough, you will find yourself deeply connected to the area, its rocks, warm colors and calm, natural sounds. It will surely bring out all the good in you, and will send you back with hidden joy and light.

Dar Mouna is one place I will go back to every time I want to replenish my soul with good energy, and foster inspiration.

The view from our room at Ait Ben Haddou was stunning. It is very nice to wake up with this view. The breakfast is also served on the terrace with this view. It is a short walk to Ait Ben Haddou. The staff is very helpfull. They always answer your questions. The room is basic, but with a hot shower, nice bed and chairs. The hotel has a pool. The restaurant is great,they will serve a menu with is the same for every guest, but the food is delicious. You can also have a bottle of wine here.

The traditional Maroccan Dar Mouna hotel has an absolutly terrific staff. Very helpfull and friendly and makes you feel right at home as soon as you enter the gate. The hotel has a swimming pool and has an excellent view of the Kasbah across the (dry) river. Rooms were basic but very fine and clean.

We spent here one night. The room was average, the bathroom too. The views though from the terrace on the kasbah are unforgettable. The breakfast was nice. We did not have diner in the restaurant, but it did look really good. The pool too, although it was rainy and chilly when we were there, so we did not try it.

A wonderful place to stay when you want to explore the kasbah of Ait Benhaddou. Nice authentic rooms and the lounge is perfect to relax and enjoy the free WIFI. The restaurant is OK, but don't be afraid to explore the tajines at other local restaurants.

We stayed here for two nights. The view from the terrace is just marvellous - you can see the entire kasbah. Rooms are basic, but very clean and the beds are good. Bathroom is very basic but everything works. Having breakfast on the terrace is wonderful. The atmosphere made us feel very much at home. The inside patio is a nice place to relax. Because we had been on a rather busy trip we very much enjoyed the second day - seeing the kasbah takes only an hour and this left us with a day "off". Ourzazate is definitely worth a trip. Good restaurants and we even went to the film studios. We had dinner both nights at Dar Mouna, they serve wine and the food is good. The two young men working there are very polite and adequate, they speak English and French.
