Simple, charming, and comfortable property managed by Youssef and his wife. Youssef was so welcoming and hospitable. We ate dinners cooked by Youssef's wife in their beautiful courtyard for a truly warm and authentic experience. Youssef also arranged a sunset camel ride for us one evening which was so memorable. Amenities are lacking but we were tired from our drive arriving from Fes so we were there just to relax and enjoy the desert area. My husband and I were sick from something we ate in Fes and Youssef made us a home remedy drink that helped. Youssef's kindness cannot be beat! Highly recommend!

Lovely hotel and host
I was welcomed from the time i parked my car. Youssef is a great host. He welcomed me with delicious cookies and mint tea. he also turned on the heater in the room for me. i feel very warm from both the environment and also from Youssef. I love how Youssef decorates the rooms and public area. The breakfast is awesome as well. i highly recommend you to stay with Youssef.

Une nuit de fraîcheur avant de gravir les dunes
Excellent accueil par Youssef lui-même qui est aux petits soins et d’excellent conseil pour les activités à toutes heures. Il est le designer de ce petit hôtel où on se sent si bien. Il est aussi très bon cuistot et parle plusieurs langues! Et toujours avec sourire et humour.

この施設の一番のお勧めは、なんと言ってもオーナーのユーセフさんのすばらしい”気配り”です。先に先に気を配って、客に不要な心配をさせません。 砂漠の近くにある伝統的な建物としては、清潔に保たれています。エアコンも効きました。
