“Great location, shame about the restaurant”
Reviewed 5 December 2012

We stayed at this hotel as part of our tour of Morocco with Explore. We stayed for two nights in late November 2012. The setting for the hotel is excellent with great views from the terrace around the swimming pool over the town and valley below..... we also used this hotel as the base for walking in the Todghra gorge, which is just round the corner.
Room was fine and typical of what we had found in Morocco. The beds are quite hard, but we prefer them that way. The lighting in the rooms subdued, and heating is required at this time of year, provided by the A/C unit.
The restaurant was a disappointment. We arrived for our evening meal (which was not included in our package) and were asked which group we were with, and then told what we would be having. As this meal was not included in our package we found this somewhat surprising. We were offered a three course meal, soup, chicken tangine and dessert...... but by this stage we were tangined out.... and so asked for the menu. This simple request seemed to fall down a language gap..... the offered meal was repeated, and the request for the menu also repeated. This time the waiter wrote down the offered meal and told me this was the menu! We then asked if they could do an Omelette.... "oh yes, no problem"..... By this time, attempts to discover what further delights their kitchen could produce had exhausted us.... so we had Omelettes. We were not able to have any fillings in the Omelettes, so they were plain and served with well over cooked carrots and courgettes. We did have a dessert, my wife a passable creme caramel, and I an orange salad (cut up orange on a plate)....... The next night we ate out at Restaurant Inass, just up the road towards the gorge, and had the best meal we had on the whole trip

We stayed here whilst on tour with encounters....and boy was it interesting!

The hotel is standard and that's ok....we didn't expect luxury. But the beds were rock hard! I barely slept and my body was a bit sore the next day. Others complained as well. The aircon worked, barely, but it tried!

At this hotel you get served dinner, it's not buffet style. The food was ok, the dessert was horrible. Breakfast the next morning was even more dismal with old bread and croissants! I ate nothing!

We went to the city for a walk, which is not far away. There's a hotel there with a cute terrace and we stopped for some drinks. Twelve of us ordered various items...and the price cam to 120 dh. Much better than the overpriced hotel!

I was glad to get outta there!

We stayed here for one night during our tour with Encounters Travel. The AC in our room wasn't working, the hotel tried to fix it immediately and when they were unsuccessful they gave us a new room with working AC. Full marks for sorting the problem efficiently with no fuss.

The pool area could do with an update, the loungers were past their best.

Decent but compact rooms and the reception and restaurant were pleasant.

We came to Tineghir from tents on the Sahara, so this hotel seemed relatively luxurious. The hotel is built at the top of the highest hill in the city. Many rooms, mine included, offer a terrace with terrific views of the city center below and the oasis created by water flowing down from the High Atlas Mountains. My room was medium sized with functioning power, light, television and plumbing. The hotel was clean and the dining room good for breakfast.

Room Tip: Top floors have a terrace with fine views.

This hotel had a good location up a small hill about 5 min from the main street. The rooms were quite basic but very clean with great balconies giving great views. The pool area was also great but March is a bit chilly to be swimming.

This hotel reminded me of the good old days Rusia was still the USSR. All that can be broken, was broken, such as toilet, bath, curtains, television, doors etcetera. And the furniture and decoration was exactly like in the fifties. No problem, but don't call yourself a four star hotel, when you can't meet that standard. And worse, instead of everywhere else in Morocco, the food was just bad. Never take the days menu in this hotel!
And all is so sad, because it is so unnecessary. The hotel has everything to be a great place: a good location, a good building, great surroundings and great views. It only seems to miss a good management, that can inspire it's staff to make it a great place for their guests.

The only good things about Saghro are the beds. These are firm, clean and good. And as promised, they gave us two connected rooms, one with a kingsize bed and one with a double bed. We only had to pay twice the price they confirmed us by e-mail. So be sure to check and double check before you book here. Anyhow, there have to be better places near Tinghir to stay for a view nights.

The rooms were the usual Moroccan clean-meaning they don't bother with walls and corners, places you don't touch directly. The beds were ok. I had a nice view out of my room of the deserted kasbah next door.
The main people were not that friendly, but the guy that does all the work, like getting a light bulb, carrying luggage etc, was VERY friendly and helpful.
Great views from the 3rd floor, great for sunrise and sunset photos, of the surronding area, from High Atlas to Anti Atlas Mtns.
Wifi in the lobby only.
They made fresh Berber Bread for breakfast, which was a nice touch. Perhaps what makes it 5 star. The lobby was really nice, and I am sure the pool, which was gorgeous, would be great in the summer.
It was a 5 minute walk down the hill to town, or taxis to Todra Gorge.
