Auberge Chez Yacob Agdz Reviews
Authentic Moroccan Kasbah - Excellent Views Oct 30, 2010
This authentic and friendly kasbah hotel is located just east of Agdz in the village of Tamnougalte, in the beautiful Draa Valley palmeraie.
The selling point of this place is the wonderful view from the large terrace out over the Draa Valley; nestled between the Anti-Atlas Mtns.
There is a sign from the N9 to turn off down a gravel road of a few km's, to find Chez Yacob. It's right beside the crumbling, historic ksar of Tamnougalte.
The room itself was dark with thick walls (to keep it cool) but was decently sized and clean with a double & twin bed. The bathroom was very basic with a naked bulb for light and a kind-of shower area, but no proper tub or enclosed shower. A wooden, sliding-bolt and padlock secure the room's door.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and both dinner and breakfast were very good and affordable. The staff did speak a little English, but French or Arabic will probably come in handy. A double-room including breakfast was around 30EU/night.
All told, it's a little basic, but the service was really good, the location is quiet and palm-tree covered, and is certainly authentic & off the beaten path.
