Ksar Timnay Inter-Cultures

Resort in Around Midelt

On the dusty highway 20km north of Midelt, this kasbah hotel-motel sits in large leafy grounds and offers a wide range of accommodation from rooms to family apartments, as well as camping and caravanning. Rooms are large and comfortable enough; those in fancier Riad Mimouna aren't a whole lot nicer than the standard rooms. The restaurant is poor.

The owners are passionate about the region and offer excursions at Dh300 per person per day, as well as trekking to Jebel Masker (3265m) and Jebel Ayachi (3737m). The snag is that all of its trips are a minimum of four people – and the hotel rarely gets busy enough to put together a group of that size.
