We spent only one night at Dar Isselday and regretted that we didn't have more time for a longer stay there. The host is extremely nice, very welcoming and speaks excellently French (if you want to practice :) ) Furthermore, the place is very neat, cozy and clean. The breakfast was typically Moroccan and really very, very good. In the...

On our way to the Sahara Desert or back to Marrakech, It has become a ritual that we have to stop at Dar Isselday, even if it is just to have their deliciously fresh breakfast and their amazing homestyle couscous. The owner Kamal always spoils us rotten and we really cannot consider a trip to the Sahara without visiting. It...

We were returning to Marrakech from Zagora and decided to spend a night here to break up our trip. Kamal gave us a very warm welcome and prepared dinner for us that night. 80Dh for a 3 course meal was very good value. We enjoyed the warm salad as well as the tagine, unfortunately the dessert was a bit too...

Kamal is very sweet and caring. He owns this beautiful berber home with great views, and his whole family gets on with the job of hospitality. There is something very peaceful about this accommodation. Food is consistently good and breakfasts can be served on sunny terraces surrounded by vegetation and views. Kamal can also guide you on a walk to...

We spent two nights here on the way back to Marrakech from the desert and really enjoyed our stay. We were made to feel totally welcome and comfortable as soon as we arrived, by Kamal and his family. The property itself is beautiful and the views are stunning. Breakfast was fantastic, tasty and lots of it. Dinner was also delicious...

My friend and I arrived in Dar Isselday past everyone's bedtime -- without a reservation: we woke the owners up. Not only did they greet us as if we were coming back to our own home, but they also fired up the kettle to offer us some tea. This introduction perfectly describes the kind of hospitality we received: we felt...

We stayed here as a last night of our tour with Desert Majesty - it was the most friendly, lovely and cleanest place we stayed out of our whole trip in Morocco. Kamal and his family were so welcoming and were more than happy to answer our questions about geology or tagine cooking. We went on a day trip with...

6 motorcyclists booked this off Google maps & what a joy it is! The signpost is a little late in along the road as it is right outside the place but its not immediately obvious which building it is, so you are likey to drive straight past before you've realised you have passed it. There is parking directly opposite though...

1. Stunning setting - an abandoned kasbah on the (very steep) hill behind the hotel, a verdant river valley across the road, the Atlas mountains all around 2. A charming, knowledgeable and wonderful host (Kamal) - one any tourist property would cherish - made us feel welcome, was a fount of knowledge he eagerly shared, does wonderful tours of the...

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our travels thru Morocco and were not disappointed. The view was awesome, and the tajine was the best we'd had on our 12 day trip through the southern oasis towns. Did not get a chance to stay at the Riad, but it also looked great.
