What To Know

- This resort feels like an oasis with a tranquil outdoor pool and serene spa
- Marrakech is 30 minutes away
Picturesquely situated amidst an exotic orchard at the foot of the impressive Atlas Mountains, Kasbah Igoudar is ideally situated for exploring Morocco’s diverse landscape. With an on-site spa and restaurant, a stunning outdoor pool and friendly staff on hand, you’ll have everything you could need for a truly relaxing stay.
After breakfast on the terrace, either spend the day relaxing on a lounger by the tranquil outdoor pool or travel to the center of Marrakech’s Medina, just 30 minutes away, where you’ll be able to haggle for leather goods straight from the tanneries, sample fresh spices or buy hand woven carpets. Kasbah Igoudar’s welcoming staff are also on hand to organize excursions for you such as a visit to a berber village, a hike through the Toubkal National Park or a hot air balloon ride over the Atlas Mountains’ lofty peaks.
Inside, Kasbah Igoudar is a cool haven of soft white linens, cool marble floors and spacious rooms, softly lit with candles and exotically furnished with fine Moroccan fabrics.
How to Get There
The resort is further away from Marrakesh than we thought, for each return transport we were supposed to pay 60€ which adds up. The breakfast is very disappointing, the quality of the food bad and even after reporting food allergies several times, the staff was not able to cater alternative food options. Lunch and dinner is quite expensive, as well as bottled water. Our so called 'Welcome drink' was a small bottle of water.
Communication can be very difficult since part of the Staff speaks only arabic or french, we had several occasions where our bookings were not followed up properly, one night we ended up having to find a cab ourselves late in the night even though we made a booking with the hotel 2 days in advance.
The place is beautiful, the view to the Atlas mountains is stunning and it could be a very relaxing place, but we constantly had to haggle and even after agreeing certain terms, the reception staff raised amounts which weren't appropriate. Even though the place is beautiful, we wouldn't want to stay there again.
Lovely the garden, pool, sunset and view from the terrace overlooking the mountains, kind the people working there, BUT THE MANAGEMENT IN NOT GOOD.
The the a real manager and some more effort from the property.
No WiFi working, no hitters and no hot water the first night (likely Hamid was very helpful).
Good the restaurant BUT NOT ENOUGH STAFF and always the same cart.
YOU CAN DO BETTER!!!
Thanks for a lovely few day must say that it was so relaxing wished we had a few more days SPECIAL thanks to Nourddine, Youssef, Abdelhakim, Yassine, Khalid, Sabir and all the other staff who looked after us during our stay.
An unexpected but a lovely surprise. A little oasis in the middle of nowhere. Highly maintained, well planted surroundings, filled with serene areas where one is able to relax and enjoy the picturesque view of the mountains and gardens. Warm and extremely friendly staff. SPECIAL thanks to Nourddine, Youssef, Abdelhakim, Yassine, Khalid, Sabir and all the other staff who looked after us during our stay there. If you wish to have a nice relaxing time in Marrakech, this is the place to visit.
The only draw back is the fact that they accept cards only, despite that, they were very accommodating.
Honestly... the previous reviews stating that the hotel is disgusting, disgraceful and no where near 5 star are completely untrue. This is a 5 star resort in MOROCCO... not somewhere like America. Please be realistic and have realistic expectations when booking.
My partner and I checked in for a 4 night stay with breakfast included. On arrival, we were greeted by Sabir with Moroccan mint tea, which we sat and drank by a beautiful outdoor pool and shown our room half an hour later (we arrived early in the day!). Unlike the website, the hotel is more 45-50 minutes from the airport rather than half an hour. Our room was decorated with stunning Moroccan decor, clean, tidy and well maintained. Yes, there were a few bits and bobs that needed touching up, however we were both very pleased with it. Housekeeping were attentive, polite, helpful and always chatty. Rooms were cleaned unless we requested otherwise.
The pool area was again clean and tidy. Yes, some of the umbrellas could do with being replaced but during our stay work was being carried out continuously. We spent our time sitting sunning ourselves next to a well stocked and reasonably-priced pool-side bar. The views of the Atlas Mountains are breathtaking and well worth the trip from Marrakech itself. It’s clean, quiet and a little bubble of tranquility, perfect for a restful break! The hotel are happy to help with all excursions and offer personalised tours of adventure is more your thing. All food and drink was very competitively priced and delicious. A mix of Moroccan and western food is available.
Throughout our stay, ALL staff were willing to bend over backwards for us and were so friendly. We cannot thank them enough for making our little getaway restful and memorable.
This hotel is well worth a visit!
