Ksar El Kabbaba

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Not sure why, but I loved this place, probably b/c it is a perfect place to stay on the long trek from the Sahara to Merrakech. Skoura is an old oasis and this hotel is an oasis within an oasis. It is not a 5 star hotel, but it is very well appointed and creates a sense of quietude and relaxation. The staff is excellent, friendly and has personality. P.S. one of my regrets was not spending time to walk around Skoura on a market day.

Stayed only one night returning from the desert. This renovated kasbah is absolutely magnificent, with beautiful grounds, pool and gardens. The service is excellent and friendly. Dinner and breakfast served outdoors on one of the patios were extra special. Wish I had stayed longer.

A desire stop if going to Marrakech (or coming to) from/to the Sahara. Superb people serving you, best pomegranates ever (on sep-oct) eaten ripped at the tree and best food. An oasis. Nice swimming pool, spa and delightful gardens.

We loved this place. We had a junior suite overlooking the pool. The suite had one room with a queen bed and the other two twin beds. Only issue...the lightning is very poor. Beautiful grounds with old ruins next door. What was superb though was the service. Our waiter was funny and very accommodating. The dinner, although a pre-set menu, had an amuse bouch of caviar, then a vegetable soup, great chicken and then an apple tart with ice cream for dessert. The next day they had the two of us eating al fresco by the pool. A wonderful Moroccan breakfast it was. This place deserves 5* (except for the lightning).

Our stay was just overnight, but the atmosphere here was enchanting, imagining how it was to live in a Kasbah back in the day. It looked like a real Kasbah with all their towering walls and palm trees everywhere. Even the decor is true to the origins of the days of the Kasbahs. The remnants of a very old kasbah is still on the grounds. As we entered, we were immediately greeted by the very accommodating and friendly staff. We were given a tour around the Kasbah by Abdul, explaining everything about the place. We were then offered mint tea and cookies in the foyer. Although the property was not large, the grounds were beautiful. There are different places to sit and relax in the garden, each one completely different than the other and all surrounding the lovely swimming pool. There is also a spa, a fitness center and wellness center. We had a very nice room. We were in the El Khamssa, a superior room with two beds and a small sitting area. There were wonderful argon oil amenities in the nice size bathroom. Our room did not have a tv. Our dinner was one of the best meals we had and we had some fantastic meals in Morocco. The dining room, which is located in a separate building, was decorated beautifully with the most incredible Moroccan hanging lanterns and lovely embroidered Moroccan tablecloths. The dinner was pre-selected, part of our tour package. We started with a delicious pumpkin soup and Moroccan bread then little appetizers of red and black caviar on a little puff pastry and a piece of fish on a cracker. Our main course was grilled marinated chicken, a small grilled beef and green pepper kabob, a fabulous potato gratin, stuffed zucchini with cheese, grilled carrots and rice with herbs. Dessert was an unbelievable apple torte cake. Everything was insanely fabulous. I can’t describe how incredible the food is here. Truly a meal to remember. Breakfast in the same dining hall was the usual: Hard boiled egg, cheese, honey, jam, olives, breads, cakes, coffee and delicious fresh squeezed orange juice. We can’t say enough how everyone here was so very nice. Our one night stay at Ksar El Kabbaba was very pleasant. We highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at Ksar El Kabbaba in Skoura for two delightful nights. The major reason for my 5 star rating is the exceptional service by the incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. The property is very well managed. My room was really nice, quite spacious and very clean. High ceilings, comfortable bed and nice big bathroom. We celebrated a birthday one night at dinnertime. We were entertained by the staff/local musicians and they made her a beautiful cake. Our birthday girl danced with the staff. The second night for dinner we were entertained again before and during dinner. It was so much fun. Our dinners both nights were very good. Breakfast everyday was plentiful and very good. One afternoon we had an exceptional BBQ lunch in the garden. Some of us had our feet in the water that runs in irrigation trenches under our table. Dinners were very good as well. Did I say ... Service was exceptional? Lots of hugs all around when we left and a number of the staff came to Ksar entrance to wave goodbye.

We stayed here for two nights on our way to the dessert, in this great hotel. There were four of us, my husband and I and our 2 teenagers. They ensured we had the best rooms available to make our stay comfortable. The street is deceiving as you drive up to the hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised as it was like an oasis at the end of the road. We were greeted at the entrance by the staff, taken for a tour of the hotel and gardens and then enjoyed a welcome tea and cookies. The hotel is great, very well looked after, clean, spacious and traditionally decorated. There is a great outdoor area with a large pool and lots of comfortable and relaxing seating options to relax. Dinner and breakfast was setup in different locations around the pool or in different locations in the large garden. It was always special, private and unique to allow you to enjoy the surroundings. Our rooms were large and had everything we needed. The staff and service here is excellent, the best service we have had in Morocco and also elsewhere at luxury hotels. Nothing is too hard, Abdul Hakim(hope I spelt the name right) made our stay super special. He took care of every detail and more often than not preempted what we are going to need and planned it. He even rode his bike to the nearest town to get us sun screen, that is above and beyond! We so enjoyed our stay and wished we had a couple more nights to enjoy this place and the great hospitality and service of the staff. They are excellent and deserve good tips! We would highly recommend this place and will visit again next time in Morocco. Thank you Hakim for making our stay so special!

This place is just simply marvelous. I could not see stopping anywhere else between Marrakesh and the Sahara. I was stunned when I entered and saw the lush gardens and pool. My wife enjoyed the spa treatment and it was reasonably priced. The food was excellent if maybe a little pricey. We bought the room as part of a larger tour so I'm not sure what that cost but it was worth it.

We had the most amazing time at this beautiful hotel and spa in Skoura. We made a new friend Ali who made our stay unforgettable. We can't wait to return. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. Such beautiful hospitality.

Unfortunately the manager was not nice and the service wasn't good. I spent one night and it was the worst of my 4 day trip to the desert. They were not welcoming and treated our Moroccan driver with little respect, so I didn't expect they would better to myself and partner, indeed they left us waiting around for a long time as our room wasn't ready and we dismissive/ ignored us when we asked when it would be. This was surprising as everywhere else we had stayed was warm, welcoming and very hospitable. Other than this place we had a fantastic time in Morocco.
