Our Guests Say
Wonderful and relaxing
The service was impeccable and room was welcoming. The bed was comfortable; sheets and blankets were a nice quality. The hotel is very well built and I did swim but water is a bit cool as it is November now but still had a few nice reading sessions and a drink while lazing in the sun on the poolside loungers. It is close to a historic village. At first I worried about the main road but there is little traffic and our room was so quiet and had a nice view towards the peaceful valley.
Very good hotel. Excellent location.
100% everything was amazing and much more ❤
A must book if in the region
Absolutely stunning under the lion mountain. great breakfast. swimming pool is a beautiful plus. staff very helpful. hotel at the start of many hikes.
Amazing oasis of a hotel with comfy rooms and incredible views . Highly recommend.
A gorgeous guest house with breathtaking mountain views. Very peaceful. The rooms are set around the pool, so very easy access to nip and get things from the room. There are comfy loungers and umbrellas and a fun berber tent, so lots of places to chill. The outside views are incredible with ever changing light on the mountains. The breakfast was plentiful, with fresh orange juice and amazing fluffy pancakes. We had a very delicious dinner .. I would recommend the Chicken pastille.. a type of Chicken pie made of filo type pastry, chicken and local almonds…my husband said it was one of best things he had ever tasted ! The staff were delightful and helpful. The Dutch owner was also delightful, informative and helpful. We did a great walk around the Lion’s head Mountain .. you drive to a little village behind the hotel and walk under the mountain first through Olive groves, then up , up up on the right of the face, stunning views from the top , then down into a gorge behind. The town of Tafraoute is a great place to wander.
Comfortable and peaceful
The owner and the staff were very attentive, pleasant, and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, as were the dinners in the restaurant. Our favorite spot was a corner table in the beautiful salon, and the staff accommodated us by serving our meals there. The view of the mountains and the valley are spectacular. We will definitely choose to stay here again.
Beautifully located, heating in the room, hot water, serve alcohol, nice staff, good beds, wifi. Nice by the pool.
Excellent, peaceful, well run place. Value for money.
After a day of travelling through the mountains from Foum Zquid, arriving at Auberge Kasbah Chez Amaliya was a very pleasant surprise. It is very nicely located outside Tafraout. We had a wonderful view from our window on the mountains and a few nearby villages. We enjoyed good meals, chosen from a diverse menu, in the dining room. Our laundry was done within a day. The hotel is well run by a Dutch Moroccan couple with grace and warmth and a very helpful staff. It is very tastefully decorated, the rooms being arranged around a spacious inner courtyard with deck chairs and terrace tables and with a sizeable swimming pool, bougainvillea on the surrounding walls and mountains as a back drop. The rooms had comfortable beds. We only spent 2 nights but understood that there were longer term guests who used the place for hiking and walking in the surroundings. We felt a bit jealous of them when we left and hope to be back.
