Accommodations

Whenever possible, we prefer to use locally owned and operated accommodations that are hand picked by us.  The following list represents our preferred accommodations for this tour, but these may change depending on the group size and availability.  Substitute accommodations will be at least the same level of comfort as the ones listed below. 

 

Rabat: Hotel des Oudaias

This charming hotel originally opened in 1918 as L’Hôtel des Oudaias dit Transatlantique and is itself immersed in the history of the current capital city of Rabat.  Hotel amenities include free wifi and air conditioning.  The en suite bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers, bathrobes, and even slippers.  Situated just a couple of blocks away from the Kasbah of the Udayas with many shops and restaurants within walking distance, the terrace boasts amazing views of the Kasbah, the ocean, and the Bou Regreg River.  The interior with its mix of traditional Moroccan and French aesthetic won't disappoint either.  

Chefchaouen: Hotel Al-Khalifa

This boutique hotel situated on a hill just outside of the medina offers panoramic views of this beautiful small city.  Just a 10 minute walk from the main square, this warm and friendly guest house provides an excellent base for your Chefchaouen explorations.  And, like all of our accommodations, the rooms are clean and comfortable and include en suite bathrooms and air conditioning. Free wifi is also available here.  

Meknes: Riad D'or

This fabulous riad is located in the heart of the UNESCO designated medina of Meknes.  Originally built in 1791, this recently renovated riad maintains its traditional charm and provides comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms and free wifi.  The riad terrace offers a perfect place to relax with a rooftop pool and a panoramic view of the city.

Fes: Riad Al-Makan

Your immersion into the history of Fes will be complete when you return to this 17th century traditional riad.  Ideally situated inside the medina near the famous Blue Gate, this gorgeous riad serves as your home base for exploring the winding alleys of this ancient city.  And don't worry... you will be able to enjoy the traditional Moroccan features from hand-carved wood and plaster to mosaic tiles without giving up modern conveniences like air conditioning, en suite bathrooms, and free wifi!  The riad also features a sun terrace with breathtaking views of the city.

Midelt: Ksar Timnay

Owned and operated by the former director of the regional tourism ministry and Amazigh activist, Ksar Timnay is more than just a hotel.  It is also a culture center for the local people.  You'll be comfortable here as the guest rooms are equipped with air conditioning an en suite bathrooms.  The hotel offers a beautiful swimming pool and free wifi and it is located next to an ecological park (15 minutes by foot) perfect for stretching your legs.  Since this is a place where artists and musicians gather, don't be surprised if a party breaks out after dinner!

Merzouga: Hotel Yasmina Merzouga

Another of our favorites, this hotel is situated right on the edge of the giant dunes of Merzouga.  The comfortable rooms are equipped with en suite bathrooms and air conditioning.  There is a large terrace in the common area which is the perfect place for tea upon your arrival or prior to your camel trek.  Or, if you prefer, you can have your tea by their beautiful pool.  

Yasmina's standard desert camps are located in the heart of the big dunes.  The tents have electricity and comfortable mattresses with plenty of warm blankets.  Of course, if the weather is nice, you may prefer to bring your mattress outside and sleep under the stars.  The standard tents are not en suite, but there is a tent that houses multiple flushing toilets and sinks with running water.  In the morning, you'll camel trek back to the hotel where you will have time to shower and prepare for your day.

Dades: Auberge la Vallée des Figues

Another one of our favorite places in Morocco, this warm guest house has clean and comfortable rooms decorated with a traditional Berber aesthetic.  All of the rooms have en suite bathrooms and air conditioning, and some have private terraces.  The Dades Valley is a breathtakingly beautiful area and the main terrace offers spectacular views of the valley and the opposite mountain into which time, wind, and rain has carved a face.  But the best part of this guest house is the family that owns and operates it who make you feel welcome and take care of all of your needs.  Should you want to go for a hike in the nearby Monkey Fingers, one of the guys will be happy to guide the way.  And the food here is delicious, plentiful, and served with an extra helping of the hospitality for which Moroccans are famous!

Marrakech: Riad Mabrouk

This fabulous riad will be your meeting point for this tour.  Located in the medina and a 1 minute walk from Jemaa El F'na, this traditional guest house boasts amazing views of Marrakech from its rooftop terrace.  The rooftop terrace is also where you'll find a dipping pool -- perfect for cooling off after a long day of discovering Morocco.  No need to save leg power to climb steps -- the newly installed elevator will make getting to the terrace and your room a breeze.   Speaking of your room, the guest rooms all have air conditioning, a safe, a minibar, and a television.  The en suite bathrooms are furnished with toiletries and hair dryers.  And since there is free wifi, you'll be able to post all of your photos of magical Marrakech.

There We love staying here.  The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the service for our adventurers is impeccable.  It is the perfect place to start your Morocco Immersion!

Essaouira: Riad Ben Atar

Located in the heart of the medina, this traditional Moroccan riad is just a short walk away from both the beach and the shops of the medina.  The rooftop terrace furnishes a place to relax and enjoy the breeze with spectacular views of the medina and the sea.  The comfortable rooms are a great place to unwind after a day of exploring.  Rooms are equipped with en suite bathrooms and televisions and there is free wifi that is accessible throughout the riad.
