My spouse and I spent 4 nights at Irocha after some High Atlas hiking. The hospitality was outstanding, the food was amazing, and the views from the terrace over the green valleys were superb. There are many nooks around the outdoor terrace and gardens, so there are many places to escape if you want to read or contemplate in solitude. There are also several inviting areas to congregate and socialize with other guests. Because of these many "zones," the place never feels crowded even when it's full. The pool is very clean and well cared for. For those who enjoy an evening apéritif on the terrace, they offer full bar services to their guests without hesitation. Bottles of very good Moroccan wine are also available at dinner.
There are several short, easy hikes to take around the area, including some kasbah ruins perched on the cliff several hundred feet above guesthouse, the river valley below, and the hills across the river valley. Ahmed set us up with a Grand Taxi for the day to visit Telouet and Ait Benhaddou. The fee was paid by us directly to the taxi driver and was very reasonable. (Irocha is convenient to both of these sites.)
I have never been so well-cared for! Truly outstanding hospitality makes this a great place to hang out and relax after trekking and before a long trip home. (Our flight departed out of Ouarzazate.)
