Le Petit Hotel du Flouka is a charming lakeside retreat just a 45-minute drive from the heart of Marrekech, which means it’s a tranquil haven of peace within relatively easy reach of the city center. This lovely hideaway embraces Berber tradition with gusto, but has a certain European je ne sais quoi, thanks to the touches of its French owner.
At this sumptuous abode, you can dine under the olive trees at the hotel restaurant, where owner and chef Jean-Charles serves up homemade French and international cuisine, using fresh seasonal ingredients. Take a dip in the heated swimming pool, which boasts spectacular mountain views, or just relax in the small, cozy lounge or out on the shady terraces, where you can take in panoramic vistas.
When you feel like venturing out and exploring this exotic locale, you’ll find plenty of ways to do so, from adrenaline-pumping pursuits, like quad biking or buggying, to more-relaxed options, like golfing, walking and horseback riding.
Suites are spacious and fuse a contemporary aesthetic with rustic, Moroccan charm. The Lakeview suite comes with an open fireplace in the corner, plus a private terrace that affords wonderful views over the water.
Amenities- En-suite bathroom- Large private terrace- Open fire- Flat-screen TV with TNT channels- Air conditioning
Le Flouka restaurant is an atmospheric space with both inside and outside areas to enjoy. Homemade French and international dishes are served here, all using the best of the season’s freshest ingredients. Pick a pew in the shade under the olive trees as the sun descends, or opt for candle-list calm amid the rustic interiors.
Le Petit Hotel du Flouka is situated a 45-minute drive south of Marrakech and sits on the banks of Lake Takerkoust, on the skirts of the Atlas Mountains.

How to Get There
This was our 2nd visit and we had a lovely time. The staff are great and the location is fab if you just want to rest and relax as there is not much else to do unless you have a car!
We had a lovely large room with terrace and lake view. The pools are great but the larger one is able to be used by restaurant guests so can get busy during the day.
The food was good and the restaurant has a lovely setting. However I'm vegetarian and whilst I was catered for I didn't have much choice. I do echo the previous comments about breakfast - it was hit and miss and certainly not as good as when we stayed a couple of years ago.
Food was very expensive, for what it is. We didn't like anything we ordered much. For lunch they always have the same menu.
Breakfast is a mess, food is just randomly served to the table, by a single waiter, who seems to be overwhelmed by the amount of work. The food you get for breakfast is one of worst, we ever got in Morocco. For example; cheap yogurt, cheap cheese and old bread. No pancakes or traditional Moroccan bread.
The rooms itself need to be renovated.
This location is just lovely. But beware if you are staying at the hotel. The restaurant seems to be more important than the hotel. Someone will show you the room. Thats it. No one asks about your cases, no explanation of how things work, breakfast, check out etc. As a hotel guest you are a guest with no priority. Opposed to the crowds pouring in for lunch, who are really annoying. There is no place to go between 12 and 4 pm. As a hotel guest, there is no escape. Totally annoying and loud. We fled the compound during lunch hours.
The rooms used to be quite nice, but need a make over. They are spacious with small windows. The toilette is dirty and not fixed to the floor. The furniture outside ist really dirty. So you cant really relax and enjoy the deck.
Again. The restaurant ist great, for lunch (and dinner). But breakfast is a disaster. Old bread, three jams, bad coffee, some crepe piled up in a total mess of buffet. This was really bad. And not worth a dime. Also, we saw the staff clean used cups, and juice bottles under cold water, no hot water or cleaner. Nothing. No surprise that we got diarrhoea. This all sounds really bad. The point is. This place is a great location with good food in the restaurant. But don't expect too much of the hotel. The manager was really nice and friendly. Also the owner. But they did not really pay attention to us being a guest at the hotel.
