"My daughter and I escaped the hype of the Medina in Marrakesh, where we were staying with family and a French friend, who owns a Riad there, for the contrasting peacefulness of an overnight stay at Ksar Shama.
It was a wonderful break in a stunning setting. The accomodation was spacious and furnished in rich Morrocan colours and authentic Berber style.
As vegetarians we were more than ready for a change from Vegetable tagine! The Italian chef, who also cooks traditional Moroccan food, made delicious home made Gnocchi with lemon, olive oil and herbs from the garden, also a wonderful cream of courgette soup and some other vegetarian savoury dishes. We found the staff very friendly and helpful.
In the afternoon we both enjoyed a relaxing massage in the Hammam. The therapist used local Argan oil and a very luxurious blend of essential oils.
The next morning we went for a mule ride in the foothills of the Atlas mountains, which would love to do again.
We will be back!"

Helen, Skelmersdale

"We have travelled extensively and this was without doubt one of the most perfect beautiful holdays we have ever had. The location is beautiful and wonderful, peace, harmony wonderful service, the hotel is beautifully and tastefully designed and stays happily within a traditional and natural Morrocan aesthetic. This is a perfect place for people who want a lovely comfortable hotel surounded by beautiful gardens and the wonderful Atlas Mountains."
