We favor small family owned riads, kasbahs and eco- lodges versus large international chain hotels. Generally, they are run by people with a passion for Morocco. And it shows. Wouldn't you rather spend the night in a hotel where the owner shares local insider tips over breakfast ? Where you can peek into the kitchen and even join in preparing dinner ? Where you get invited to one of staff’s home for tea or lunch and see how the locals live ? Not only we are familiar with each property, but also know which one would fit best your particulars, whether you are on honeymoon, a family with children, a group of friends or a retired couple.
Even though Trip Advisor and the likes have revolutionized the way we travel nowadays, fake reviews and photoshopped images have ruined quite a few vacations. Every few months we travel across Morocco, anonymously trying out new and established guest houses. Additionally, if our guests rate poorly one particular property several times, we remove it from our portfolio. We don't trust magazines or press releases and believe that Trip Advisor is merely the tip of the iceberg. To most of these accommodations, a star rating per se wouldn't make any sense. We use our own rating and words that, for us, best resume the different ranges: Dreamers, Privilege and Divine .
