Everyone in Moknari is my family now. I stayed for over 2 months and will definitely be going back! I miss all my Gssimi and Bouhia family! I would definitely recommend staying here and surfing the area - Hicham and his family are great surf guides as well as instructors. Any level can enjoy a wonderful experience, even if you don't surf while you are there. ...Maybe I will move in permanently one day and pay rent to the village. Inshallah. Enjoy your stays and soak up the experience. You may find it to become your home like I did, and you will never want to leave. (It was really hard to leave). 💕🌊🏄‍♂️🏄‍♀️read more

Moknari is the place to be when you want to experience the real morocan way of life. You arrive as a guest and leave as a family member. Hicham and his family are amazing people who do everything to make you feel at home right from the beginning. Hicham is the perfect surf teacher. Patient and motivating he gets never tired of supporting and coaching you in the water. I can highly recommend taking lessons with him and staying with his family. I see you next year <3read more

A magical place where one week turns into two weeks turns into three weeks and before you know it you start calling it home. Hicham and his family are wonderful hosts. Moknari is one minute walking away from a beautiful beach with great waves which you learn to ride pretty fast as Hicham is a great surfteacher. If you want to live slow and down to earth, this is your home. Thank you all so much and save me a bed for next year! ❤️read more

We stayed with Hicham and his family for three nights and it was 3 best in Morocco! He was very helpful not only during our stay but also before and after. Till now we can't stop thinking about this time. It was really magic adventure, everybody in his village was extremely nice and hospitable. We couldn't expect more, really! We are very thankful for everything we receive there. To be honest, we were almost crying while saying goodbye despite the fact it was only 3 days. Surely we will come back! Thank You so much!read more

If you are a traveller and actually want to experience the real Marocco, look no more! Thanks to Hicham we experienced the berber authentic cousine, culture (we even we so fortunate to attend a traditional berber wedding! Wow!) and people, who were ever so kind and hostile! No amount of time spent by backpacing in Morocco will give you this experience! Will come again!read more

Staying with Hicham and his family in their little village was truly an amazing experience. When I arrived in Agadir, he was kind enough to pick me up at the bus station. He treated me for a snack in Agadir before we drove to his village. Hicham and all the people in the village were all very friendly and welcoming. Staying in the same house where his family lives, eating the local food, and just doing the same stuff as what his family is doing, I really get to experience the local way of life, which is really a wonderful and enriching experience. In the afternoons, we would go to the beach where his family would play cards or go fishing while the children would play football. We would then share a meal of bread and tagine. I especially enjoyed playing board games like Perudo and Rummikub during the evenings. I slept in a room in his house, but on my last night I slept in a hut by the sea which was really nice and relaxing.During my stay with him, Hicham taught me how to surf, and although I don't do any sport, I enjoyed it because he is a very good teacher. We also went for a hike to see the incredible paradise valley, a beautiful lagoon with emerald green waters nestled between rock formations and surrounded by palm trees. It was a very memorable place not only because of its beauty, but also because I get to try cliff jumping and most importantly, because on our way home, the car we were driving had one of its tire burst. We had to drive for a few kilometers with a flat tire and wait for a few more hours to have the tire fixed. On my last day with Hicham, he showed me around Agadir city and took me to the top of the mountain overlooking the whole city.Although I’ve only stayed with Hicham for a few days, you will feel that you are not just another tourist but most especially a part of the family.(P.S. Thank you very much Khoya for letting me experience all of this. It was a really wonderful experience. Sorry if it took me a while to write this review. I truly hope to see you again next time and hopefully I would finally learn how to surf during that time! Good luck and all the best!)read more

It's an awesome experience. Hicham and his family are very warming and loving. It's the total inmersion on the Magrebi and Berber culture sharing in the family village. Amazing stories, delicious food and the best surfing lessons plus trips to see the desert, paradise valley and others. Total disconnection from the world. Enriching experience.read more

Located on a remote hillside outside the main tourist areas, Hicham and his family are extremely welcoming and will immerse you in their way of living and culture - including great food, good stories and intense games of rummikub. Also, the surf is great - you will get the beach for yourself and even surf lessons when needed. For an intense and truly Moroccan experience, disconnected from the rest of the world, look no further!read more

Stayed with Hicham and his Family for five days beginning of October. You'll feel welcome from the very first moment, eat like a king and surf without crowds right in front of the village. There's amazing surf everywhere around; consistent waves at Tamri beach and famous spots such as Boilers, Dracula and Killer Point are all in driving distance.Hicham drove us around to surf, showed us old villages and other spots and took perfect care of us.This is what a surf trip is all about! Thanks for an awesome trip Hicham!read more

I stayed with Hicham and his family for 4 days, and I can definately say that it was one of the best experiences I had in all of my trips. Moknari is a beautiful and truthful village, full of colors, smiles and good hearts. I have been away from my family for a whole year, and it was so great to feel again that warm of sitting and eating together, of people caring about you, of children running inside the house haha I spent beautiful moments there and I can't wait to come back 🙂 Thanks for everything, Hicham 🙂read more

For five days we were lucky to stay at Desert Point Surf House. We didn't know what to expect beforehand but this place and the people made our experience of Marocco unforgettable. We were welcomed in Hicham's family and enjoyed the real basic but pure life without technology. They served us the best local food we tasted in the time we stayed in the country. We surfed, played the guitar, got to know the kids there, counted falling stars and took a swim whenever we wanted. Hicham was very flexible and drove us to every best surf spot in the area. We didn't need a lot of time to get used to this lifestyle and to fall in love with everybody. If we ever visit Marocco again we will definitely come back here. Don't hesitate to book this awesome and beautiful place!read more

I stayed at Desert Point Surf House while I was traveling with 3 other friends and it was an amazing experience. Hicham was more than a gracious host. He catered to our every need and learning to surf was quite a lot of fun. We had the beach to ourselves which was the best part. Staying with their more than gracious family was one of the highlights of my trip. On top of all that all of the food for all of our 3 days and nights was amazing.read more

This was actually the best surf holiday! When we arrived in taghazout and don't know where to learn surfing and stay, there was hicham showed us his place and there was no superior. We all know we want to stay there. And we had a really amazing time, he always taked care of us and much more. We learn surfing so far and had beautiful moments on the waves at the sunset or under the fullmoon. About of all this beautiful moments it was also a moral for me what is really important in life and how to be happy with just small things. Hicham is one of the happiest person I ever met and I never wanna forget this time. Can't find the right words, you just have to feel it by yourself! So desert point surf house, you know we will meet again <3read more

So this place means home to me . We went to Hichams place to learn how to surf and it turned into kind of a love story, because we fell in love with the place and the people. He and his family were so friendly and heart warming that we literally couldn't leave. I think we had the best time in Morocco at this amazing place with its own quiet beach and awesome waves Hicham always took care of us, organized trips, made us happy with his creativity and good mood, made sure that we were just paying the local price everywhere and that we wouldn't ever starve (there was so much food, I couldn't handle) ☕. It wasn't just a great surf school, it's home to me now. So I highly recommend to visit his place, it's a hidden paradise ☀ lovelove Lauraread more

We had an AMAZING time at the Desert point surf house! The hospitality of Hicham and his lovely family was overwelming, and Hicham was a perfect surf teacher/guide/friend - teaching two surf-beginners how to catch waves, showing us Paradise Valley and how to eat absolutely everything on a goat head (!) and just how great people in Marocco can be! I would recommend this place to everyone who visit Marocco!read more
