Irocha is a beautiful and tranquil place for anybody interested in a quiet place after experiencing busy cities of morocco. The rooms, pool, or terrasse are extremely well kept and clean. Also breakfast was pretty standard moroccan, in a good way. Beware, there is a pretty steep and rocky road from the main road to the hotel. We would give this hotel 5 stars if it was possible to pay with card. It was not mentioned before that we couldnt pay by card, so if you dont count with it and have to use cash, it definitely does not please you. Otherwise, a great hotel which we would recommend.

We stopped at Irocha, as many do travelling from the Sahara to Marrakech. For one night. And it was a beautiful location to spend the evening. Perched on the side of a beautiful valley with greenery running along the valley floor alongside the road.

Irocha itself is small, and as is traditional in Morocco, set around an internal courtyard that provides an oasis of quiet and calm, even when (as was the case when we visited) there are strong winds in the valley.

The hotel is small, and simple, but has a rustic charm that we found intoxicating. The place is run by an incredibly friendly staff - in a quiet and incredibly casual fashion. But still with a level of service and attention to detail that is often absent in European hotels.

For me though, what made Irocha special was not the excellent pool, which we did not use, but the hilltop Kasbah that sits atop the steep valley sides above Irocha. As soon as I was out of the Jeep I saw it, and wanted to walk to it. A short steep scramble later, and I was exploring an impressive ruin, with even more impressive views. Incredible.

Then back down to enjoy the simple but decent food, the comfortable and well appointed room, the polite and efficient service and the free wifi provided by Irocha.

We stopped at Irocha on the way back to Marrakech for just one night unfortunately, but this was enough to gather the special energy that this place emanates.
In a few words I would describe it like that: exquisite rustic elegant simplicity!
Ahmed and his team manage to offer a warm refuge to those travellers passing by, mostly stopping just one night.
However, this is a place where, if I would have the option, I would choose to stay longer to absorb the good vibes that I felt when there: you can relax by the pool, plenty of walks, Ait ben Haddou is not far, etc.
Thanks for a short but very friendly stay!

Destiny wanted us to stay at Ahmed's place. After our booking in another hotel was weirdly cancelled we asked our host in Essaouira for a last minute hotel recommendation in Aït Ben Hadou, she told us about Irocha and the warm hospitality of its owner. We got there the same day by bus, we asked the driver to drop us in Tisselday, which is a Berber village half an hour before Aït Ben Hadou, it was a beautiful night and not a soul in sight. We called Ahmed who picked us up in his car and in five minutes we were in Irocha. We felt at home as soon as we put our feet inside the gorgeous and warm common area. We were showed our room, cozy and beautifully decorated with local craftwork. We had then a really good dinner followed by a visit to the in-house hamman that the staff had ready for us. After a seven hour bus drive, we were in heaven!! The following two days Ahmed and Catherine took us to amazing places, we visited a gorgeous oasis surrounded by the most amazing landscape, we did a little hike and had a delicious salad under the mild February's sun, we were over the moon really. The day after we woke up early and taking advantage of the great weather we had some relaxing time at Irocha's swimming pool before going on that day's adventure. We then visited Telouet and its Kasbah, we were amazed by the beautiful surrounding valleys and mountains and later that day we walked impressive Aït Ben Hadou.
We loved every minute in Marrakech and Essaouira but staying in Irocha was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip. We are already planing to go back soon!
Thank you Ahmed and Catherine for everything!
