Normally fully booked as this place is very popular. Situated on the local airport perimeter road. Large bedrooms with loads of Moroccan style. A swimming pool with breakfast area. The staff are very good and take care of every request. If you come by car its OK to park outside the main entrance as the road is wide and fairly... More

This hotel is built in a nice setting, which seems to have been a large home, not exactly in the format of a Riad, but with outside windows. The breakfast is excellent and the team will go that extra mile in satisfying your needs. Dinner is also good as a more simple option, given Oarzazate has excellent restaurants. The rooms... More

We stayed at this place after a week of trekking in the desert. Fatima the owner and her staff make you feel at home right away. Rooms a large and clean and nicely decorated. It has a very nice patio with a swiming pool. The only negative side is that is is a little far from the center of town.... More

Although the riad is not in the center of the town, it is an excellent place to stay. We only stayed one night en route to Marrakesh.The rooms are tastefully decorated and the amenities in the bathrooms are more than adequate. The heating worked very well and was necessary as we were there late in December. The breakfast served outside... More

We stayed at Le Petit Riad on two seperate occasions on our way to and from the desert, both times were an absolute pleasure and the perfect preparation and respite from less comfortable conditions! The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly, the building and decor beautiful and our room was extremely comfortable. Arriving in February it was a little cold... More

Le Petit Riad is situated at the edge of the town adjacent to the Airport. However a taxi ride of 5 minutes or less takes you to the centre of the town and at very little expense. It is located in an area that appears to be very quiet which helped to ensure we had a great nights sleep after... More

It was a nice experience to go to Le Petit Riad. The Riad is very charming both the common places with the super big pool and our own room. Nice hot showers specially comming from three days in the desert. Fatima, the owner, is a very kind person that really helps you with everything you need, which includes for instance... More

This beautiful riad is a quiet little oasis away from the centre. Although it only takes about 20 - 25 mins to walk there or a 5 min taxi. The owners and staff are so friendly. We were greeted by big smiles and a box of chocolates and a beautiful room. Throughout our stay they were so helpful and anything... More

We (partner, nine-year-old child, and me) stayed in Le Petit Riad for two nights. Out of all the hotels we stayed in while travelling around Morocco, this was definitely our favourite. Friendly and helpful staff, really beautiful decoration, lovely amenities (pool, breakfast terrace, cosy restaurant), tasty food, and a breathtaking view of mountains from the roof. I have nothing at... More

Having triumphed over the pass (from Marrakech) in deep snow it was a relief to arrive here. A warm welcome, charming quirky room, a delightful roof terrace and a view of snow capped mountains with mint tea started the whole stay on a high note. There are only a few rooms each one individual but with all the facilities you... More
