5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

i found that:
the decor, the food, the design, the tranquility, the service, the staff, the management, the cleanliness, the originality were absolutely wonderful. I unequivocally want to pass on my highest compliments to staff, management and owners.
Will definitely be back to explore more.

Very nice hotel ,beatifully decorated rooms. Perfect service. It is something different than other hotels we have stayed in. It gives you a feeling of being in a home away from home. There is no reception. The kasbah rooms do not lock from outside . We stayed in the blue suite in the Kasbah . The food was delicious .
There is only one thing I kinda did not fancy that much and that was the location-It is in the middle of a small village so right outside are the muddy streets with dirty gardens and local people. You can`t just step outside and enjoy the surroundings but you need to go on an organised tour which of course is perfectly organised with 4x4s and guides avaialble at the doorstep.
In one word amazing hotel and service.

Room Tip: We stayed in the blue suite in the Kasbah it was amazing .

In my humble opinion, tourism is to be reconsidered in its terminology and definition! Tourism is not anymore about travel and hotel but it is about EXPERIENCE. if you agree with me then, i had the pleasure of experiencing this week one of the few properties i have stayed in worldwide who understood clearly a new approach to make you live Luxury in all its beauty!
Dar Ahlam " Dream House" is an old Kasbah within 40 km from Ouarzazate. the concept sounds easy and simple but to synchronize and coordinate the service is not that simple. About 80 employees all from the local area are present without disturbing you "they see you, you don't see them" the management is all the time present making sure, you are fully comfortable and happy.
when it comes to a meal, you are escorted every breakfast, lunch or diner to a different part of the property and no one will inform you of the menu! every meal, moment is unique and they make you feel unique!
A lunch under the olive trees and your foot in the river.....a breakfast in the terrace overlooking the entire property and the Oasis......
one of the evenings, you are cordially invited to an excursion 30 min from the village and suddenly, you find your self in the middle of volcanic mountain crossed by a little river and your magic table set just for both of you near a nice berber carpet where a sweet moroccan mint tea is waiting for you......much more to say but i will keep it for me!!!

Room Tip: having tried both the rooms in the main Kasbah and the private individual villas, you have for sure...

Everything is very beautiful and comfortable. Our suite in the kasbah was lovely but not that special. What makes this place special is the delicious surprise meals you get tucked away in the gardens or on a terrace. The table service is always different and beautiful, and the evening candles are magical. There are always rose peddles sprinkled on the table, and you are entirely alone while you eat. Somehow your waiter appears, when a wine glass needs to be filled. They have a lunch table for two which is situated over a irrigation canal where your feet are cooled in the water, while you eat. The whole experience is unbelievably romantic. I wanted to share it with everyone. The pool is warm and long and very beautiful, and I had a perfect massage. We also had a great tour of a local pottery maker and the out door market. It was a stay to remember.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor

We very much enjoyed the night we spent at Dar Ahlam in June, 2013 on an anniversary trip. The property is remarkably peaceful, the service terrific, the food is very good, and the entire experience is truly personal.

We arrived at Dar Ahlam after a night at an unaffiliated desert encampment so we were ready to unwind and relax. The facility and staff did not disappoint. We each enjoyed a relaxing hammam and massage, as well as the very unique approach to dining -- each couple (or family) eats by themselves, in some sort of secluded place on the grounds. We had one meal in the kasbah itself, one in the gardens and enjoyed one on the patio to our room (which was spectacular). Moerover, when we asked about late checkout and an extra meal -- the staff were 100% accommodating, which we appreciated as one of us was under the weather.

In all, Dar Ahlam was a remarkable find - one of the highlights of an extraordinary trip to Morocco.

The oasis atmosphere is wonderful. Dinner somewhere different in the grounds each evening. Perfect. ! Lots of trips and picnics . Charming guides. It is worth going to the desert by helicopter if you can afford it. The picnic in a gorge by the river is aust too, as are walks through the oasis with its ruined kasbahs.

Home away from home, in an unexpected place. Each room has its own personality. The property of the hotel is to dream for. Every meal was spectacular and served in a different location. The service of the staff was impeccably brilliant. Every little detail is amazingly cared for. It is laterally an oasis in the middle of a beautiful country.
