Lovely people. Campervan area fine. Food was good. Bring your own drink. 5 vans. Someone turn the temperature up please. Pool is clean but unheated. That's what you get when you travel in March. Some young people are here from Eastern Europe.

About the room: We stayed in a family room here for three nights. The room was simply decorated, with an air conditioner/heater, with a double bed and another double was added for our two small children. There was a private bathroom with a bath tub and hot water. It had a balcony and there were several beautiful roof terrace areas...

The two brother were not only real great hosts with a big sense for hospitality and kindness, which was much more than you can expect in a common hotel or guesthouse. They even offered us a great dinner and welcome lunch (best omlette berbère of Maroc!) and were at every time present for a individual advice! The Kasbah is beautiful...

We had a very pleasant one night stay at la Defat Kasbah. The room and especially the pool is very nice and the surroundings are amazing. Our host made us feel very welcome. We had an excellent dinner (not included in the price) and the included breakfast was also very good.

Defat Kasbah is a beautiful and calm place. I can fully recommend the food (delicious tajin, desserts and breakfast), rooms (clean, nice, spacious) and all atmosphere in this place (out of crowded turistic places, nice swimming pool, very good service). For sure I come back there when I next time will visit Morocco :)
