Guest Reviews/Feedback:

Hi Houssine,
My husband and I spent a week in Morocco together with our two daughters and their boyfriends. I booked the riad a week before the holiday, having read the reviews on this site. I agree with everything already written, and would recommend this riad to anyone. We spent just one night here, as a change from the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. We were lucky that the weather was hot and sunny so the youngsters were happy to relax on the roof terrace, and then we all enjoyed a tasty meal prepared by Houssine's wife and served by his staff in the sitting room - heated by a log fire as explained in the other reviews. My husband and I walked to the nearby village and were amazed to see that the way of life is still very primitive, although everyone has a satellite dish! The rooms and ensuite in the riad were a higher standard than we expected, and the whole family was very welcoming. Houssine's English is excellent and he would definitely have been a great help if we had booked for longer and wanted to walk in the mountains.

Hi Houssine,

When trekking in Morroco recently my wife and I stayed i night here before travelling on to Marrakech (having previously stayed at the Kasbah de Toukbal).This is a delightful little guest house which is about 1 kilometre or so from the centre of Imlil (no further than the Kasbah).It is very well run by the owner and his family and everyone was extremely friendly. The rooms were modern and reasonably sized and you can lounge and eat on the roof terrace.

Extremely good and cheap food. The Chicken Tagine I ate was the tastiest that I have had anywhere in Morocco

Thoroughly recommended!
