This hotel was the nicest one of our whole trip. The manager made sure we we happy the whole of our stay and even arranged some musical entertainment at night after dinner. Too bad we were just passing through, I would have loved to stay a couple of days more in this beautiful place.

Lovely people. Campervan area fine. Food was good. Bring your own drink. 5 vans. Someone turn the temperature up please. Pool is clean but unheated. That's what you get when you travel in March. Some young people are here from Eastern Europe.

It had a balcony and there were several beautiful roof terrace areas...

The two brother were not only real great hosts with a big sense for hospitality and kindness, which was much more than you can expect in a common hotel or guesthouse. They even offered us a great dinner and welcome lunch (best omlette berbère of Maroc!) and were at every time present for a individual advice! The Kasbah is beautiful...
