beautiful oasis of a hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 16, 2011

I stayed here during my first visit to Zagora in 2003 and like the other Asmaa hotels in this family run business - Rissani and Midelt where have also stayed - are beautifully decorated hotels with traditional designs and loads of character

Wonderfully hospitable and comfortable - you could almost feel you were in a palace

As per traditional kasbah style the rooms go up around a large central inner courtyard with many stairways up to the top - head up to the roof for excellent views over the area - the views from the roof here at Zagora give lovely views over the palmeraie - especially lovely in the early morning - hear and see the birds chirping amongst the date palms and the locals out and about

Good value for Dinner, bed and breakfast - the food was excellent here - 2 or 3 course evening meal and excellent buffet breakfast - was Ramadan and the place was full but clever layout and design maximised sense of privacy

We stayed in this hotel just one night. It was very lovely place - with the swimming pool, nice restaurant in the garden.
Very interesting decoration inside.
Room was very spacious.
The price was something around thousand in local currency for three of us.

In the style of a Berber Ksar

by written on October 1, 2006

Although I didn't stay at this hotel, I did visit it twice. Once for a toilet stop , before embarking on our camel ride into the desert, then my second visit was the following morning, when the thoughts of a cold drink and dive into the hotels pool, sustained me during the endurance of the 2 hour camel ride back to Zagora.

A Ksar is a Berber fortified stronghold, and the hotel is laid out in a traditional style. Apparently there are nomad tents where guests can sleep out.

The pool is surrounded by tables and chairs, and pleasant gardens.
By the way, I didn't dive into the pool (as my swimwear was on the bus) but I did find a shower in the ladies toilet block, so was able to freshen up there, and remove some of the Saharas sand from my hair.

This looked quite a nice place to stay - looked more than a 2* hotel.

Unique Quality: Pleasant gardens and pool area.
Showers in the ladies WC were very welcome

Directions: Ouarzazate road, Gateway to Zagora, continue along Bvd M 5, at the roundabout take 3rd exit, pass by Timbuctu sign, continue straight along the road that crosses the Oued Draa, and the hotel should be visible

A bit of a splurge, but elegant and affordable

I'd recommend it for its peace and quiet, and terrific food. Very good service, with a warm welcome. It cost 420 dh (about $63.00 Canadian) for two people, including a really good breakfast.

Unique Quality: Our high-ceilinged room had a balcony overlooking the pool, a big closet, reading lamps, a bathroom with bidet, an easy chair, air conditioning. Guarded parking was across the street (it's customany to tip 10dh to the "guardien" upon leaving). The breakfast was substantial: 3 kinds of Moroccan pancakes, boiled eggs, delicious bread, yogourt, cheese, orange juice and coffee.

Dinner was also a bit of a splash at 395dh, but it was well worth it. We had two half-bottles of wine, tagine of chicken and lemon, tagine makfout (beef), lots of delicious bread, and lacey crepes for dessert.

Directions: 150 m beyond the bridge as you're heading south.
