du Lac (t. 023 442465) Good value for money

Bin el-Ouidane is all about the artificial lake of the same name. The lake, providing irrigation and 25% of Morocco's electricity is a popular destination for many. The local hotel rents out boats for small trips and fishing. Swimming is not allowed here. The hotel is complete with a bar and a restaurant, but has no room heating although it stays open during cold winter months.
Getting here, you either start in the major city of Beni Mellal (most likely) 60 km northeast, or you connect to the mountain town of Azilal 27 km southwest.
