Quiet Oasis but not 5 star!

Posted Oct 13, 2013
Pros: The swimming pool and gardens are beautiful. The water's cold but lovely when you in. Spa rooms are lovely, would highly recommend Ritual de Marrakech
Cons: Standard doesn't have fridge or safe.Dial up from hotel laptop&there is no wifi. Loungers are wet as not put away . Food basic&no other food available
Location: We went to Imlil day trip. 129 euros 2 people. 2hrs drive to mountain village. 35min walk to waterfall, walk back to village. Set lunch. Drive back.
My husband and I stayed 9 nights, 1/2 board Standard room. Staff friendly and trustworthy. Speak mostly French. The hotel is located 1 hour by taxi or bus from Marrakech. Its a beautiful setting in the countryside off the main road about 1.5miles. However it is very remote with a small mosque and collection of houses about a mile away & there is no where near that is suitable for eating out, buying food or general exploring. Taxi to most places cost 20 euros and 30 at night. Local bus from main road cost 1euro every 30min no45, stops beside taxi drop off in Marrakech. The hotel food is basic; Breakfast is the same every day & consists of 1 warm flat bread, 1 laughing cow cheese, jam, marmalade, handful of olives, glass of orange juice, tea or coffee and a traditional sweet bread. Lunch and dinner consisted of a 3 course set menu no choice which changed daily. This is the only food available at the hotel. Lunch is about 13 euros and consisted of a salad, main and desert. Typical lunch; Simple salad with bread, Meat grill with fries & fruit cocktail. Typical dinner; Basic salad, traditional salsa or soup with bread. Tagine chicken with vegetables or beef on the bone with raisins. Crepes or slices of orange with cinnamon and icing sugar or fruit cocktail. Drinks are not included; 1ltl water 1.8, wine 15 & beer 3.5 euros. We both got diarrhoea for a few days along with another family who left the day we arrived and another couple. Not sure what it was.

Beatiful but didn't live up to expectations

Posted Aug 14, 2013
It may have been due to Ramadan but we found that we didn't have as spectacualr a time as the reviews of this hotel would suggest. We opted for a Standard room which is very basic. There is no fridge/mini bar, no proper cupboards, no drawers, it is simply a comfortable double bed in a small room. The bathroom is a shower, sink and loo. This is absolutely fine if you are intending on spending most of your time outside but not consistent with the incredible rooms inside the property. It was difficult to find staff at times, when you do they are delightful and very welcoming. However, if you want a bottle of water after 10pm at night, forget it! This could have been due to Ramadan, as it must have been tough for them during this time. However, I would have expected more service. The pool is fantastic and if you want to lounge around in the sunshine and swim it is perfect, despite broken sunshades. The grounds are fab too, the groundskeeper works so hard to keep them up. This place is in the middle of nowhere! 50 mins from Marrakech, and taxis in and out are expensive. If you have dietary requirements I'd advise against it, I really struggled as they didn't cater for my allergies at all. I was STARVING for the whole 5 days and if you don't do full board individual meals are relatively expensive, especially to barely be able to eat any of it. Beautiful place, very quiet, friendly staff but I wouldn't stay for more than 4 days. Not suitable for young kids.

Nice hotel let down by poor food

Posted Jul 26, 2013
Pros: Great pool.
Cons: The food.
Location: In the middle of nowhere. This is nice for a few days but then becomes a problem due to the hotels lack of facilities.
This is a nice hotel with a lovely pool but is let down by its location and facilities. Location wise the hotel is very far from anything which means that trips to anywhere including Marrakech end up costing a lot (£30 return to Marrakech). In addition the location means you are totally reliant on the hotel for food and activities. The restuanrant only serves one lunch option and one dinner option, so if you don't like what's on offer there is little scope for anything else. After a few days of repetitive meals we just grew bored. The pool bar was lovely but never staffed and always low on stock. Prices were also quite high for Morocco. Staff tried hard and wanted to help but were often just not fully aware of guests waiting etc.

BirthDay Celebration

Posted Jan 24, 2011
Celebrated my birthday at Kasbah Iguodar on a 3day visit in November. Amine , the owner provide everything to make me feel at home in this exotic setting including most "chocolate-chocolate" birthday cake I ever had. His staff is superb and meals could be had anytime you wish. Now this Kasbah is located about a 40minute drive south of Marrakesh, so it is out in the countryside near Lalla Takakoust resevoir. I had rental car to get around to explore Marrakesh and the Berbere villages. Very peaceful and scenic, a real bargain for this solo traveler. Hopefully , I will be able to return to this Kasbah.
