Hotel Soleil is nowadays run by Mohammed Aziam. It was his father, Hajj Mohammed, who started the hotel in 1971 as a café with a few rooms for rent. Together with his caretaker Abdellatif, Mohammed makes sure that all guests have a wonderful stay in Imlil.
In 1995 the infamous flood destroyed most of the building, fortunately with no loss of life. In 1997 the process of rebuilding began which was finished in January 2008 with the opening of the final wing.
Hotel Soleil is well known for its food, and the ability to cater for large numbers of people.
The staff speak Arabic, Berber, English, French and Spanish.
