We have stayed for one night on our way back from the desert. The hotel is nicely decorated and very pleasant to stay at, both indoors and outdoors. The staff is very friendly and takes good care of all your needs. There is a small restaurant where they offer a pre-set dinner menu for the day. It is very affordable... More

The hotel is located outside the city in a quiet area that can be reached either by car or taxi. The staff is extremely kind, professional and helpful. There is a pleasant garden with swimming pool where you can relax. The rooms are spacious (especially those with pool view), clean and well equipped. If you are planning to visit the... More

This Riad is spectacular. It is set in a quiet area of Ouarzazate. Our room was overlooking the pool and the fields behind this Riad. The rooms are clean and spacious. Dinner here was excellent and the breakfast was good. The staff here were very friendly and we had a great time here. Wifi was available in the room and... More

This hotel is a stylish heaven tucked away in ouarazazate. I found the rooms very attractive and the pool area well kept. Staff were helpful and friendly. The food here is of a good standard and the dinning area pleasant. I love the central courtyard area of the hotel with its water feature and lanterns, very atmospheric! I only stayed... More

They say Ouarzazat is "Hollywood in Africa" because it's used in so many films. Well, this hotel feels like a place the film people would use. The pool and outdoor dining area shrouded by palm trees could easily pass for Beverly Hills. The hotel is laid back and has such friendly staff, with beautiful understated decor and gorgeous lanterns. Rooms... More

Guidebooks say that Ouarzazate is mostly a base for travellers between Marrakesh and the desert. Perhaps, but Dar Chamaa definitely provided a most peaceful oasis for exploring the region, including the Kasbahs of Aït Bennadou and Skoura. The hotel is a modern construction with nods to local architecture, a nice swimming pool and lounge areas. Rooms are clean and laid... More

Only sorry it was only for one night. What a special hotel - not what we were expecting at all. Lovely poolside area for drinks and dinner was great. Rooms not enormous so I'm glad we didn't need to share.

My wife and I stayed at Dar Chamaa as part of a desert tour arranged through Morocco Excursions (also reviewed). As the last riad on our tour, we thought we had figured out the whole "tourist riad" vibe. Dar Chamaa confounded our expectations. As others have written, it is a very modern approach to lodging off the main drag in... More
