Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Xaluca Dadès

Rte. de Er-Rachidia, Boumalne du Dades, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco

Part of the Grup Xaluca chain, this vast hotel offers high-quality accommodation in a region that generally lacks luxury. The complex was originally built in the 1960s by the Moroccan state-owned hotel company; now revamped, it's kitted out entirely with an African flavor, from printed textiles to dark wooden masks. Facilities include a large pool overlooking the town below, a bar, and a restaurant. Mountain biking and mule trekking can be arranged; the hotel also makes a good base for day hikes in the gorge, although you'll require transportation to reach it. Rates include breakfast, but half-board is recommended as there are few local dining options.

PROS

  • spacious, airy lounges
  • plenty of family amenities

CONS

  • located at edge of Boumalne, far from the gorge
  • ugly architecture
  • popular with tour groups
