This delightful Riad was a really lovely place to stay. The owner is friendly and helpful, and so are her staff, the decor is brilliant, each room is different and the place is full of their own art. The gorgeous smell of the home-cooked food tempts you to eat in, and you won't be disappointed. Full of character, but everything... More

From the friendly welcome the moment you step through the door to the offer of a cold bottle of water as you leave this little riad is a wonderful oasis in the hot Moroccan desert. We visited in the height summer when temperatures were sizzling around the 45°C mark so the pool, air con and shady patio were most welcome.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Le Petit Riad prior to starting a bicycle tour that started in Ouarzazate. The Riad was very clean and well maintained. The host Aimad was incredibly accommodating and did everything possible to make sure our stay there was fabulous. I would highly recommend the Le Petit Riad.

This is a nice riad with a very friendly team providing spot on service, and serving great food. The lemon tajine I had on my first night was phenomenal. Some wild décor (loved my pink bathroom) adds to the exotic feel. Good pool and conveniently located to head out to the desert or to the route of the kasbahs.

Le Petit Road was one of several we stayed in while traveling through Morocco, and it seems to be the one that comes up quite often when we recount our travels to friends. The location was nice, the staff was great and the room was nice. What really sealed the deal for us though, was the surprise local entertainment that... More

A good value. We wen with our Family, two small children and they felt very happy too. ask for Zachariah's help is you need to shop, Aimad... More

A little difficult to find, as the GPS shows a location further down the street. It is actually opposite the landing area of the planes (but you won't hear any). The riad itself is nicely decorated, has a great atmosphere and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is good, but while we were there the wifi was already offline for... More

When we booked this placed, we didn't quite realise that it was almost 3km away from the city center. Petits taxis are fairly cheap in Ouarzazate but as two backpackers on a tight budget we would have preferred a more central location. The place itself is extremely pretty and nice, you instantly feel welcome. The owner Fatima would move earth... More

we stayed there for one night en-route to Marrakesh. The property is well-located near the town. interior is extremely interesting with lots of curios, books and pictures to explore. there's also a little terrace for an evening coffee. the rooms are functional and the food is very good.

Wonderful staff! The riad was gorgeous and full of beautiful art made by one of the owners. Was only going to stay 1 night but we loved it so much we added another. It rained all of the 2 days so we stayed warm in the common area and ate a wonderful dinner and played cards all night. DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED!
