Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

We did not like this place. The owner is not welcoming. We did not feel at ease when we were there. He did not help us to find a taxi, we had to find one on the main square, after having dragged our heavy luggages in the 400 meters rocky street. Nevertheless, the kid who worked there (he basically is doing everything there) is very very sweet

Our stay was an absolute dream, nested on the foot of the atlas, before you hit the real windy roads and climb. The owner and Abdel (Valet) were awesome. It felt like living like a milionnaire, with your personal valet. Very quiet location, magnificent views, and the half board food was so good, diner by the chiminey fire... I am surely coming back

A unique experience indeed, to stay amongst olive groves, be surrounded by snow capped mountains and sun bake around a lovely pool. The staff were delightful and bourcine's creative vision from his heart is a marvel. We visited the almost biblical Berber villages nearby, but would advise you to arrange through the hotel as guides tend to set you up, then rip off. It was delightfully peaceful here and fabulous food by Abdul the chef.

Room Tip: You have a choice of the smaller traditional Berber built cottages or larger newer models. All lovel...

The ideal location for rest and relaxation. We found this place by accident two weeks ago and the had most delicious dinner. We then re visited last weekend with our visitors and again had a lovely evening with a great nights sleep. Set in a beautiful location, great staff, comfy rooms...what more are you looking for?!

Hamid was so charming and looked after us so well. Quite the most pleasant hotel staff member we'd come across during our Moroccan travels. Our rooms were individual houses and very tastefully furnished. Interesting gardens all around. Lovely pool and patio areas. Very good food too.

Bouhcine(Proprietor), Hamid(Waiter) and Aziz(Chef) were friendly and welcoming.
The property, set in olive trees with the High Atlas Mountains as an impressive dackdrop, was attractive and peaceful.
The bungalow accommodation was simple but clean, although the design was somewhat disconcerting. The toilets in all the rooms we looked at were an integral part of the room with no floor to ceiling partition wall, no outside window and, in our cases, with a louvre door or, in other cases we witnessed, no door at all. Consequently there was no independent supply of fresh air, no soundproofing and little or no privacy.
We had no complaint with the quality of the meals but for the first 3 of our 4 night stay the quantity served for two persons was only sufficient for one. Together with other clients we eventually complained to the Proprietor and on the last night there was a considerable improvement in the size of the portions served. I suppose it could be argued that we should have complained earlier but we were under the impression it was only us who felt the portions were inadequate, it was only when we realised that we were not alone in this opinion that we collectively took action. In any case, in my opinion one should not need to point out something that was patently obvious.
I requested a discount on the price but it was explained to me that by us booking direct we had already saved on the price compared to what we would have been charged had we made the reservation via an Internet Agency.
I paid the bill by Visa and was advised that this attracted a 5% surcharge. I said there was no mention of this on the Hotel Website and declined to pay the extra.

Nice property lost in the olive trees with an amazing landscape.
Had lunch there, very friendly staff with good service. Good food!
Lovely bedrooms in a traditional style (like small bungalows)
